Staying Ahead Of The Back To School Chaos




I can’t believe that the new school year is less than a few weeks away, can you? So many emotions and so much to do before it all begins! Like most parents, we try to do our school shopping early but always tend to find ourselves shuffling at the very last minute to pick up those last few supplies just days before the big day. What makes it even more crazy is that this year my children are attending a school that does not have a uniform so that means a huge emphasis on affordable, durable school fashion for my munchkins.

My youngest is 7 and while most people find it easy to dress boys at this age, I struggle because he is not your typical second grader. He is far larger than the others in his class and we always find it difficult to dress him age appropriately yet comfortable too. That’s why I love that Carter’s | OshKosh sizing goes up to 14 (new this season)!!

Now my 7 year old AND my 9 year old can have matching outfits and affordable prices too because we all know how mommies can get carried away with shopping and stretching that back to school budget to great lengths, now don’t we? 😉


I really love that Carter’s | OshKosh offers all accessories, clothing and even shoes to get that all-in one shopping experience to fit your child from head-to-toe.

While parents shop, there is also a little activity center located in the middle of most store locations to keep your kiddos busy too – BONUS!

Since we were given a little shopping spree, we came across these adorable Halloween shirts that I think are perfect for school since they are not allowed to dress up for it anymore, mama thinks ahead sometimes…which means no running around later to find them since it is only 1 month and a few weeks away — yes, already! Gah!
