This back to school season, we had three kids to shop for. We had three school supply lists, three haircuts, and three closets that needed a little love. After going through drawers and closets and deciding what clothes were still in good enough condition to wear to school, we ended up with a few things for each boy, but new items were definitely in order. You might think that with three boys, we'd have plenty of hand-me-downs to go around, but their clothes get so hammered! The holes and the stains and all the wear and tear mean that the pile of "play clothes" is huge, and the "allowable school clothes" pile is tiny.
So, school shopping was in order. We dabbled a bit online, and then OshKosh B'Gosh emailed about collaborating just in time to help this momma out. We recently got an OshKosh store in our hometown and hadn't even checked it out yet, but with the clock ticking down quickly to the first day, this week was the perfect time to do it. I knew I could find cute things for at least one of my boys there, even if it was just the toddler who was starting preschool.
But guess what? OshKosh had cute things for ALL of my boys. I was dying over the plaid flannels and the little boots, the dark denim and the graphic tees. So many cute little things. Of course my boys were captured by the ninja tees and the coordinating sportswear, but it really was almost all cute or cool enough that I could get on board with whatever they chose as their favorites. I told them to pick out a pile and we'd decide what worked together.
Easton went straight to the basketball gear. He picked out the jacket and the matching shirt and the matching shorts and the matching pants. It was all orange and navy, and it had to be his. I was really hoping he would go for the blue flannel button-up I pulled off the rack, but it was insanely adorable to see him love his choices so much. We took home all of the coordinating things, and if nothing else, I know he loves the clothes, he'll wear them, and he can pair them himself. His favorite piece was the jacket, so we made sure we had a few different ways he could wear it. Isn't he handsome?
Knox lives for diggers and the color orange, and somehow OshKosh had him covered too. He found lots of options with a digger theme and an orange color. He was thrilled with his "I can dig it" shirt and let me tell you, I've already washed it every day since we bought it. I'm sure you can see why. ;)
I don't have many go-to places to shop for my boys, but honestly OshKosh just made the short list from now on. We have family photos in a few weeks, and I'm sure I'll be back in there picking up those flannels and plaids for a mom's choice moment. ;)

First of all, I feel like I need to clarify that I'm not pregnant. I'm not. However, I have been pregnant in the last ten months, and I think I will be pregnant again sometime in the next ten months. So maternity clothing is still very relevant in my life. And I recently got word about some developments in maternity denim that made my heart sing.
Maternity jeans are the most frustrating and essential part of my maternity wardrobe. Maternity jeans are just so hard to find and love. But I find and love jeans all the time when I'm not pregnant.
Well today, finding great maternity jeans just got a little bit easier. Madewell is releasing their line of maternity denim today, and I could not be more excited about it! I don't even wear maternity clothing right now, but just knowing that cool, well-fitting maternity denim from one of my favorite brands exists out there makes my style-loving momma heart happy. I know I have readers who are expecting, so I was MORE than happy to be the messenger when Madewell asked if I would share this exciting news.
And how do I know they are great jeans? Because that is what Madewell is all about. This month they are sharing Denim Every Day, and it's pretty obvious they know what they're doing when it comes to denim. They are about great, edgy, perfectly on point denim. The jeans I'm wearing in this post are some of my current Madewell favorites, and that's exactly what they are. A little fashion forward, slightly husband-repelling (kidding, kidding), and edgy.
Madewell now has four styles of maternity jeans (found in their denim section) that all look amazing. I love that they fit below the belly and that they look like every other pair of jeans you might have in your closet. Don't these just look like jeans you want to live in—pregnant or not? Okay, so seriously tell all of your expecting friends. This is huge news, and I know I'll be picking up every single one of these styles next time I'm pregnant.
*This post is full of my opinions and my opinions only. While I was gifted product from Madewell, I really am just happy to share this awesome news.
Well, you all have been good sports. The Anniversary Sale is almost over and this will be my last dedicated post about it. I hope my tips for shopping Nordstrom and especially this HUGE sale were helpful and you were able to find a few things you needed for Fall. I know I did- and now I'm just waiting on Mother Nature to catch up!
While tons of the most popular items have sold out, the sale isn't over yet! And there are still some really good items left in stock. If you haven't taken a look or you still feel too overwhelmed to take on Nordstrom's site alone- I'm hear to help. I've rounded up my favorites of what is still in stock and there are a LOT of good basics. Like I might go order things in a second color because they are so good. The sale ends 8/8/16 at 12 am so grab what is in your cart now before it sells out for good! (And if some of these items are already gone- I'm sorry! Things can change so quickly!)
