Shop Till You Drop at OshKosh B'gosh

This is a sponsored post.  I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B'gosh.  To express their gratitude for my participation, OshKosh B'gosh provided me with a gift card to facilitate the shopping trip.  


If you're a child of the 1970's or 1980's then you probably spent many of your formative years wearing OshKosh B'gosh overalls.  Based on the vintage photo of me above, I think we can all agree that I totally rocked their late-seventies bell bottom style.  Well, my friends, things have changed a lot since then; I am no longer a natural blonde and OshKosh is definitely not just overalls.  


Yesterday afternoon I took the Muffin Man to our local OshKosh B'gosh store to peruse their fashion offerings.  Now, if I were the type of organized, prepared, responsible Mother that I dream of being, I would've taken a moment to peruse their spring mailer to get an idea of specific items to look for.  Of course that didn't happen, so I arrived at the OshKosh store assuming that I would be choosing between blue overalls, brown overalls, and striped overalls.  My son isn't really an overall type of guy, as he prefers to walk a fine line between a "hipster toddler" and an "80 year-old grandfather" look, so I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that OshKosh carries an excellent selection of clothes to fit his particular fashion genre.  


Honestly, I had a really difficult time not purchasing one of almost everything from their spring 2014 selection.  The dominant colors - blue and green - happen to be my go-to color combinations for the Muffin Man's wardrobe.  I'm sure that part of it is because green is my favorite color, but he also looks great sporting a Kermit-inspired hue.  I'm always on the hunt for hip, cute and durable boys tees, as the temperate weather in Los Angeles means Noah spends a lot of days wearing soft t-shirts underneath hoodies, and OshKosh did not disappoint on this front.  I picked up a great striped tee that looks killer with both the bright green pants and the skinny jeans that caught my eye.  The green pants are going to be perfect for Passover seder in two months as they are fancier than jeans, but don't have to be dry-cleaned in the event of flying gefilte fish.  


Folks we got a lot of clothes for just over $100.00.  If I had been smart enough to use the fantastic coupon shown below, we could've gotten even more clothes, but since I didn't realize until I got home that I had a coupon in my possession, I didn't take advantage of the fantastic deal.  You should definitely take the time to find your local OshKosh B'gosh store, print out the coupon, and buy your munchkins some cute clothes for spring.  You can save even more shekels by joining their B'gosh Rewards promotion, wherein you receive a $10 off coupon for every $50 you spend.  


I know some of my East Coast readers are buried under a snow bank, but maybe selecting some brightly colored pants or a few floral-printed girls tunics will kick you out of your winter blahs (the coupon can be used online too, so you don't even have to leave your warm apartment).  After all, spring will arrive eventually, and your little fashion plates should have an appropriate wardrobe...even if you're still wearing maternity sweats.
