Having a new baby in the family is joyous around the holidays. Watching them become fascinated with Christmas tree lights and try to open gifts and seeing their delighted expressions really makes the holidays extra special. My little niece, Sofia, who is 6 ½ months old, will be celebrating her first Christmas this year so I wanted to dress her up in some winter outfits from Carter’s I OshKosh . By the way, Carter’s I OshKosh is having their The Happy Little Holiday Sweepstakes where participants will get the chance to win $10,000 worth of prizing until December 17, 2017. Families will get the chance to win over 150 unique shopping sprees at Carter’s I OshKosh. Wouldn’t this be great to win for the holidays?
If you’ve never been to Carter’s I OshKosh, you’ll be amazed at their selection and quality. I have been to other children’s clothing stores and have found them to be quite expensive, especially if you are buying an outfit for an infant who will grow out of it in two months! It’s just not worth it to spend so much on baby clothing when they may get only several weeks’ wear out of each outfit.
With that in mind, I was happy to find that Carter’s I OshKosh was having a huge sale when I arrived at their store at Eglinton Avenue East and Laird Avenue. Many items were 25% off! I was also pleased to find that there was a good selection of clothing for Baby Girls from 0-24 months.
I saw this Carter’s 2-Piece Sherpa Lined Jacket Set that I thought would look great on Sofia, as well as keep her warm during the upcoming winter months. Although this jacket also comes in pink, her mom doesn’t like to dress Sofia in too much pink so I opted for the grey set. The jacket is 100% cotton while the lining is 100% Sherpa polyester. The co-ordinated stretch leggings are 100% cotton rib. This outfit was regularly $36, but I got it on sale for $27.
I then found a beautiful navy blue tulle skirt with silver stars that I thought would be fun for Sofia to wear during holiday get-togethers. The skirt was paired with an OshKosh Originals Graphic Tee in soft grey that reads, “Dream Big, Shine Bright” with pink and sparkly silver lettering, which picked up on the silver stars on the skirt. The skirt was regularly $16, but was on sale for $12.99, with an additional 25% off that day, which brought the total to $9.74! The graphic tee $12 on sale for $7.99, with an additional 25% off that day, which brought the total to $5.99!
When we put the navy blue tulle skirt on Sofia, quite honestly, the first thing she wanted to do was eat the skirt. Well, infants like to put everything in their mouth. Once she realized that this was not an edible skirt, she became captivated by the sparkly silver stars on her skirt. The graphic tee looked so good on her with the tulle skirt.
I absolutely adored the Sherpa Lined Jacket and leggings set on Sofia. There are 3D ears on the hood, which make it extra cute. Sofia can wear the jacket zipped up in the car since the jacket is quite warm for cold winter days.
By a happy coincidence, the leggings that came with the Sherpa Lined Jacket matched beautifully with the graphic tee!
I was really pleased with my purchases from Carter’s I OshKosh. I bought some great outfits at affordable prices for my niece to wear during the winter. I would definitely return to Carter’s I OshKosh the next time I’m buying children’s clothing.
