Back to School with OshKosh & Carters #Giveaway

Just like everyone else's kids, my kids like to get new clothes to start the school year.

For me though, the thought of spending our last few days of summer in the mall makes me sad; we'll be spending the next 9 months indoors. That is why I was so excited to see that Carter's | OshKosh B'gosh now have a Canadian website.  My kids have literally been wearing OshKosh and Carter's since the day they were born!

I have always loved the way the clothes wear.  Kids can be tough on clothes but they have always held up well in the playground and when I've had to scrub those grass stains or ice cream spills.  I've also loved the styling and adorable prints.

Love the vintage prints and camo influence!

I must say, my kids seem to care a lot less about well wearing fabrics and nostalgia than I do but they care A LOT about style, comfort and fitting in on the playground.  They were so excited to pick out their new clothes online and of course the anticipation of that package being delivered always helps a mom out.

Layering and mix & match - my fave way to save $.

My daughter automatically gravitated to the new activewear line of clothes for girls.  She picked out a neon top and bottom that are sure to grab attention.  She liked the colour and comfy factor, I like the positive messages on the shirts.  I also love mixing and matching because it means more outfits with less clothes...that's the "on a dime" kinda mom I am.

Of course, being a girl the shopping couldn't stop there.  She picked out the chambray tunic and leggings below as well.  These make a great layering outfit which I love because it will take her from right now, the end of summer, all the way through the fall and into winter with just a sweater, hoodie or jean jacket.

Casual, comfy and coordinated - it's easy to look put-together.
She even threw in these adorable "Ugg" type Sherpa boots with a little bling for good measure.

Only $25 - can you believe it?!?

My son isn't that into layering (even though I WISH he'd wear an outfit like the ones below left). For him it is all about comfort and readiness to play any sport that comes his way.  That being said, you can still put together a super cute outfit that fits his needs and my sense of style.  Throwing on a hoodie or an OshKosh jean jacket makes this a great transitional outfit too.

I know that when I shop for myself online I get nervous at the checkout because of shipping fees but that was one of the things I liked best about shopping at the new Carter's | OshKosh B'gosh Canadian website - FLAT FEE shipping and only $8.  So, even when I added the boots (and a scarf, hat, socks, and hairbands) I knew exactly what the shipping fee would be and let's face it, between gas to get to the mall, impulse purchases and snacks for the kids while we're there, I probably came out ahead.

Even better, you can return your purchase to any of the Canadian Carter's | OshKosh B'gosh store locations or you can mail it back.  No hassles, no worries.


Well, I can't just tempt you with all these adorable outfits and not give you a chance to WIN something!!!  Carter's | OshKosh B'gosh is giving readers of Creative Mama on a Dime the chance to win a $50 CDN VISA gift card to use on the Carter's | OshKosh B'gosh Canadian website.  Enter below!
