When it comes to clothes for my girls, I trust and love one place more than any other, Carter’s! I am not alone though! Carter’s and Osh Kosh B’Gosh sells over 400 million pieces of children’s clothes each year. These clothes are sold in 50 countries and are known for their value, superior quality and age-appropriate style.

Fall is almost upon us (thank goodness!) and we recently headed to Carter’s to check out what the fall line has in store for us. It is almost so much fun for me to go there are look around. This fall season is going to be one of my favorites for sure! Here is what I have learned and how we are putting the new trends to use in our own household.

The Activewear line is so fun. This is a style that we love because of the fun, comfortable clothing. The ability to layer these clothes make them perfect for the warm fall days and cool fall nights. These pieces are especially good for us because they fit well into the  girls’ existing wardrobe.

For Joley, I loved this adorable shirt and leggings combo. It fit her personality and she loved how comfortable it is. She has a thing for pockets too so that was a big plus in her book.

I also grabbed this adorable ombre shirt for Joley. We paired it with the jeggings you see. These are similar to the ones from the spring collection but they are dark color which I prefer. These and the stripe leggings above come together as a set. I love that!

Another trend you will see this fall season is camo. Camo is available for both boys and girls. I will be honest and tell you that I have never been a huge cam0 fan but I found a few outfits that I think really are cute for Jemma! I loved this squirrel shirt but wanted more for it than jeans. I thought it looked adorable with her new camo leggings!

We also paired a cute kitty top with the leggings to make it a fun and girly outfit. You could pair some adorable floral patterns and it would look super cute too! Don’t be afraid to mix patterns this season. It will work out adorably!

One thing I loved at Carter’s for fall was the vintage prints. I think the ponies, floral prints, and puppies are so cute. I fell in love with a skirt with ponies on it that would be adorable for fall but didn’t get it. I think we may be heading back to grab that one!

I did get this shirt to go with the other set of leggings that came with the camo. I thought the small floral pattern on the pocket mixed with the stripes was too cute to pass up. The rolled cuff sleeve is cute too. Paired with these leggings and it is an adorable outfit!

My girls loved trying on their new outfits and are always so happy when we get back from Carter’s with new clothes. I love that the Carter’s clothes stand up to their wear and tear (typical of little ones) and stay looking good wash after wash.

Something else you will find in Carter’s this fall is plaids. I love a fun, colorful plaid for boys! I didn’t grab any plaid clothing this time but it is definitely something I have my eye on.

One more thing I really wanted to share with you because it makes me so happy is that Carter’s is now in bigger sizes!  Now, in 62 stores, you can find clothing in sizes 7-12. That means that my girls will be able to wear their favorite brand even longer! You can either check the store locator or the full collection is available at Carter’s online.

Right now, in all Carter’s stores, you can save big for fall! Carter’s is holding a 40% off entire store promotion between July 17 and August 5, which is great for my area since we have tax-free weekend during that time! Can you guess where I will be going??? But even better is that I have a coupon for you too! Click the coupon below and it will open for you to print! This coupon is good until 9/3/14 so be sure to grab it before you head out to shop.

Local Eats Review! The Tattooed Dog in Wentzville, MO

July 22, 2014
Tattooed Dog wall

We recently decided to try a different restaurant local here to St Charles county. It is about 20 minutes from my house and something I had been hearing about for some time. We headed out to The Tattooed Dog. As you know me to be, I will be honest with you. I was a bit worried that it wasn’t family friendly when we pulled up. If I hadn’t already known by someone telling me, I may have left thinking the kids wouldn’t be welcome there. You see, there is a bar/saloon next door and, when we pulled up, there were a bunch of motorcycles. I have nothing against bikers… but it was not screaming “kids welcome here!” in my mind upon first glance. The restaurant […]
