With the Holidays right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about what you'll dress your littles in for all of those family gatherings and parties. I know I love decking my tots out in seasonally inspired duds. (Hey, I might as well take advantage of it while they're still little enough for me to be making all of their wardrobe decisions!)
This year, Holiday apparel shopping was extra special. We got to go on a little shopping spree to our local Osh Kosh Bgosh store! To me, that's pretty exciting. This is a brand that has been around for over 100 years and is known for their classic designs and impeccable quality. I know I wore their clothing when I was little, and so do my kiddos, 30 years later! Oh, and did I mention that our retail location is also a factory outlet store? Armed with a great coupon and a gift card, we were on a mission to find the perfect Holiday outfits for Sophie and Xander.
When we arrived at the store, I was absolutely thrilled with all of the signage....Apparently, there is a massive sale right now storewide! Loads of apparel is 50% off, and all of the footwear I saw was 40% off. There are even select items that are a whopping 60% off! Yes, these discounts on top of already low outlet prices. Not to mention a fantastic clearance section!
Anyway, when I realized how great our savings would be, I got positively giddy. My husband just rolled his eyes and shook his head. He will never understand the joys of shopping and finding great bargains. Thankfully, he is willing to tag along and hold my purse or garments. He is trained very well, haha.
After I contained my excitement and got done chit-chatting with the super-friendly sales associate, I started looking for our outfits. I absolutely fell in love with this dress and cardigan set. Very classic, and always in style. Dan, however, hated the little plaid dress. So I had to find an alternative.....The sweater got snatched up right away, though!
Then I saw this precious sweater in the boy's section. I love the bright red color and the embroidered choo-choo train. I knew that Xander would adore this sweater, so this choice was a total no-brainer.
Since it's closing in on winter in Ohio, I decided it might be a good idea to grab Xander a hat and glove set. He always seems to lose them! Anyway, wait till you see the ones we chose. Get ready for a cuteness overload! We also got him some super durable snow boots!
And of course, what Christmas is complete without cute matching Holiday-themed footie pajamas? Yes, I went there...And yes, Dan shook his head and rolled his eyes at me again. Much like the joys of shopping, he also doesn't understand the satisfaction of dressing your kids in coordinating outfits.
When we had our haul ready to go, I was curious to see what the total would be after all the great sale prices and my 25% off coupon. Remember, I had a $100 gift card in hand. Our grand total? $100.47 Yep! My mental math served me well, and we only went over by 47 cents!
What Did $100 Buy at Osh Kosh Bgosh?
When we got home, I quickly got out all of my finds to show the little ones. They were both delighted! My daughter, especially...She is female, so she definitely loves clothing!
Here's what our $100 purchased:
2 fleece footie pajamas
1 hat and glove set
1 pair of snow boots
1 dress with sparkly embellishments
Pretty impressive, if I do say so myself! These prices were comparable to stores that have much lower quality items! You know...The big stores that everyone goes to...I am not naming any names here.
Here are Sophie and Xander in their brand new Christmas pajamas. They had just received their bedtime bath, so their hair is wet and slightly messy. Oh, and my Xander just couldn't resist wearing his new hat and gloves, too!
My little ham, as sleepy as he was at the time, wanted to run around being a super hero with his new fancy "eyeballs hat". Yes, that is what he calls it....A "super hero eyeballs hat".
He actually fell asleep wearing them, which I was really surprised by. Normally he doesn't sleep with anything even remotely covering his face. He just loves this hat so much he didn't want to take it off! It also seems to be quite comfortable, as the knit is super soft.
Overall, I am so incredibly impressed with our Osh Kosh Bgosh experience. The store was beautiful, clean, and well-organized. The sales associate was beyond friendly and helpful, too. I think her name was either Jessica or Melissa. (I should have taken notes!) She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and important, and that level of customer service isn't something you see everyday in a retail setting.
And of course, the clothing, shoes, and accessories are all amazingly well-made, super cute, and built to last. Getting some amazing deals sure didn't hurt, either! I still cannot believe how much we walked away with for just $100! Wow!!!
I would definitely recommend checking out Osh Kosh Bgosh when you're doing your seasonal apparel shopping. They have so much to choose from, and some wonderful values.
