Boy’s Sporty Looks {For Less!}

Thanks to Marshalls for sending me a gift card to do some back-to-school shopping.

When shorts weather came around a few months ago, Jacob began to ask if he could wear basketball shorts as opposed to the jean shorts and plaid shorts he normally wore. Almost every day this summer he wore athletic shorts with his camp shirt or another t-shirt. He loved how comfy they were and that he didn’t have to change in the afternoons for sports practices.

While shopping for back-to-school clothes, I decided to head to Marshalls to find him some more seasonal appropriate athletic wear now that the cooler weather was coming. Though he will probably wear jeans to school most days, I wanted to find some athletic looks that were nice enough for school and that he could easily wear to baseball or basketball practice.

I found some great pants, hoodies, light jackets, t-shirts and even gym shoes. I loved that the athletic brands were all available at a significant discount at Marshalls.

Don’t forget to look for a little something special for yourself, too, moms! I got myself a cute sweater and a pair of gym shoes :)

Looks For Boys From OshKosh B’gosh {Coupon}

(Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.)

Having multiple kids can be tough on the budget so as a mom of 2 I am often on the hunt for quality clothes that I can pass down from one child to the other. It really works out well for us because both boys were born in June so what Jacob wears one year, Lucas can wear the next.

I was excited to go shopping at OshKosh B’gosh this week to find some holiday clothes for the boys. I walked into the store and discovered a huge sale which made me happy because I could get more for my money. I find that when stores like OshKosh B’gosh have sales you get fabulous clothes for less than you’d pay at the big box stores or department stores. I ended up getting some clothes for Christmas and a variety of other clothes for school.

Here is what I was able to get for $150: 2 thick knit sweaters, 1 zip-down hooded sweatshirt, 1 hooded sweatshirt, 1 fleece jacket, 2 dress shirts, 4 long sleeve shirts, 1 t-shirt and 4 pairs of winter gloves. A couple of the shirts I got doubles of so the boys could wear them for holiday pictures (I will put them in matching clothes as long as they let me). If I had more time at the store I would have checked out the clearance racks more because they had t-shirts for $4 and shorts as well. The boys were getting antsy so I was trying to hurry.

Keep Warm This Fall With Nike

(Disclosure: I receive free products from Nike but all thoughts are my own.)

Fall is the hardest season to dress kids for, in my opinion. When I send Lucas to school at 9:30am he’s wearing a coat but when I send Jacob to school at noon he is wearing a t-shirt and I’m considering shorts instead of jeans. We have the same issue in the evenings because the kids go to their sports practices in shorts and t-shirts and before we leave the park they have to slip on sweatshirts because the temperature has dropped so much.

Nike sent us this great hoodie and it’s been perfect for the weather we’ve been having. I love the bright neon color against the black and the fact that the hood has the neon lining in it. It’s also not really bulky which makes it easy to fit under coats.

This hooded sweatshirt will transition perfectly into winter because it is lined with Therma-FIT fabric. Therma-FIT is a double-brushed microfiber fleece that retains energy and resists heat loss. Therma-FIT provides maximum insulation from cold and wind with minimal weight and bulk. It is ideal for any cold weather activities that require insulation.

Back To School With The Children’s Place

The boys start school in 2 weeks. There is so much to do before then but thankfully I crossed out “buy first day of school outfits” off my list before I headed to BlogHer last week. The Children’s Place invited me to shop their Fall collection and gave me a gift card to buy some of my favorite fashions. Here are some of the items I found:
