Rock the Fringe with FabKids!

*As a FabKids Ambassador, I received this outfit free of charge, all opinions are 100% my own*
Lilly has been loving fringe lately and this colorful outfit is her favorite!  She loves the bright colors, the fringe everywhere and of course the heart design. She is constantly flapping her arms around and spinning in the air to show of the fun fringe details.  Plus the fringe on the pretty gold boots coordinates perfectly and has her looking totally fashionable this season.

What Lilly Believes This Christmas! Plus her Oshkosh B’gosh Style

This post is sponsored by OshKosh B’Gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
Christmas time is our favorite time of the year!  We visit Santa, enjoy parties with family which always means yummy treats, decorate the house from top to bottom, and best of all curl up as a family and watch endless Christmas movies while sipping cocoa.
This year I sat down and asked the kids some fun holiday question to find out what they believed about Christmas.  The answers I got were so cute!
The questions I asked:
1. What does Santa say?
2. Why does Santa have a big belly?
3. What does snow taste like?
4. How would you build a snowmen?
5. What do you think Snowman eat for breakfast?

One of Lilly’s favorite parts of the holiday season is shopping for all her holiday outfits.  She loves getting dressed up and this year Oshkosh had her dancing around the store with all there holiday fashion choices.
She chose this outfit because, “she has never had a poncho before” and “look at these shoes, they sparkle to the moon”.
She paired her hooded sweater poncho and sparkly red shoes with a pair of skinny jeans, “Choose Happy” long sleeve t-shirt, and of course a sparkly headband.
Make sure you head over to your closest Oshkosh B’gosh Store and pick out your holiday outfits or check out this great Gift Guide for style inspiration!  Use this coupon in-stores or online to save 25% on your purchase of $30 or more!

Fall Fashion with FabKids!

*As a FabKids Ambassador, I received this outfit free of charge, all opinions are 100% my own*
It is starting to get chilly outside and that means putting the sandals away for fun fashionable boots to go with our stylish dresses!  Luckily FabKids has Lilly covered again this month.  Our October outfit pick is a new favorite.  She loves dressed and the way this one flows has her spinning all over the place, plus the fringe on the boots is adorable and totally fashion forward this fall.

The pattern on the dress is a fun colorful tribal pattern, which looks great with colored tights.  Lilly’s worn it with pink, purple, and green tights and each color gives the dress a new stylish twist.  The studded fringed boots are soft and comfy but totally fashionable.  They match the style of the dress perfectly.  
This dresses name is the “Tribal Drop Waist Dress” and the boots are the “Studded Moccasin Fuzzies”.

Back to School Shopping List with Carter’s #8isGreat

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.”
When I think of kids clothes, one of the major brands that comes to mind is Carter’s.  From the day I took my babies home from the hospital in itty bitty sleepers, through the toddler years and well into the school years, Carter’s has always been a staple in our closets.  We love the styles and the comfort of their clothes and we are excited to share with you that now kids can stay cute and colorful longer because Carter’s is offering size 8!  8 is Great!
I try to do 2 major shopping trips a year for my kids and unless a growth spurt happens, I’m usually able to stay out of the stores in between besides for special occasion outfits.  The biggest shopping trip being for back to school and the a slightly smaller trip for the summer months.  As back to school is nearing us, I was excited to take Aidan to get all his clothing essentials at Carter’s now that they are carrying his new size, 8!


For our big back to school shopping spree our list includes:
Socks and Underwear are a must.

A few active wear styles, that are bright and fun.

Denim is a must, and Carter’s super soft t-shirts go perfectly with a pair of jeans.  Add one of their cute button up shirts and you have a fresh little man’s style put together.

When it comes to outfitting his feet, I make sure to grab a pair of sneakers for everyday wear and a pair of slide on’s for dressier looks.  With Carter’s also now offering shoe sizes up to 3y, I am able to do a one stop shopping.  Perfect for us busy mommies!

Add a backpack, and Lunchbox, and my little guy is ready for first grade!
However with the fresh start of a new school year I also like to pick up some new comfy jammies.  There is something about new pj’s that make everyone feel happy and fresh, so I think its a great addition to the usual back to school items.

Are you ready to start back to school shopping?  Then make sure you bring this great coupon with you and save 20% off your next purchase of $40 or more at Carter’s, or better yet shop from the comfort of home and visit carters.com!

While shopping is the best way to spend the day for me, the kids know this means summer is almost over.  As you can see Aidan isn’t too pleased about that!

The outfit came with this blue with white hearts long sleeve dress that has a beautiful zip up back.  They paired it with green leggings which adds a fun contrast to the outfit.
The dress and leggings are cute, but I have to say the BEST part of this outfit is the shoes!  These are the cutest shoes in Lilly’s closet, and this girl has a lot of shoes.  I wish they had them in my size, they are going to be perfect for the holidays too!
