Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.
When given the opportunity to do a little shopping for Q at OshKosh B’gosh, I had to jump at the chance.
Here’s my problem. Q is 9. She wears a size 10, give or take. The clothing that is generally sold in the 7-14 girls department at many stores is, how can I put this…inappropriate. I mean, really, what’s the rush to grow up? Why can’t girls still look like girls for a while?
I love that OshKosh B’Gosh goes up to size 12, which covers most girls still in grade school.
While I had intended to buy a few tunics with matching leggings that were doorbuster sale items the day we shopped, Q was automatically drawn to a couple of displays, one with nautical inspired pieces in navy and a rich orange and another rack with matching t-shirts and skirts.
If there are two trends that I know Q will wear, it’s anything with a Parisian theme or unicorns. She was in luck!
What I like about the two skirts she picked out is that they both have attached shorts. Normally I have her wear “playground shorts” under skirts and dresses so that she has a bit more freedom of movement. A girl’s gotta traverse the monkey bars at recess, after all!
The store was having some pretty good sales and I was able to use the 20% off a $30 purchase coupon (it wasn’t good on doorbusters or clearance items, but it was good for things already on sale). Q picked out a few accessories including some headbands, a necklace, and socks. I had a $100 gift card to spend and my total was just a little over. And she absolutely refused to give up the striped hoodie. Here is our haul…I think we have a good start on her spring wardrobe.
Using coupons and taking advantage of sales and a couple of items from the clearance rack, we purchased:
- 3 girls tees
- 2 skirts
- 2 dresses
- 1 hoodie
- 3-pack of headbands
- 3-pack of socks
- 1 necklace
- 1 reversible tote bag
OshKosh B’Gosh has a coupon for 20% off your $30 purchase, which you can print out to use in store or online through 3/12/14.
