I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.
Two weeks. School starts in just two weeks. I know for some of you back to school was a few weeks ago! I am in major prep mode as we prepare for school for all 3 kids and a baby. I cannot lie though- I love back to school shopping. I also love that my kids absolutely love getting new clothes albeit not the shopping part.
We went on a mini weekend trip and we asked our kids what they wanted for dinner. Guess how many different answers we got? Why can’t they all have just wanted pizza? We could have forced them to eat the same thing but we stopped at the different places to get them something they would actually eat without a fight. Clothing shopping is the same way. How easy is it to drag around your kids to multiple stores so one can get this, and the other can get that? Carter’s had something for all the kids (including baby!) so I could just get most of their stuff here. And everything coordinated so well! All of them enjoy the excitement of starting something new and getting something new and catered to their personality to help them prepare for it.
This little firecracker loves to dress up like a “princess.” That means dresses, sometimes skirts. She will be going to an outdoorsy preschool so with these colorful leggings she will still be able to easily participate whilst still looking like a “princess” with her shiny shoes and dress. These modern shoes make me so happy- they are adorable and Velcro which means she can put them on all by herself. This outfit was made for her.
Outdoorsy and athletic doesn’t mean you have to look frumpy. My boys prefer a little more athletic wear and Carter’s has such cute selections that don’t scream frumpy. And my son specifically chose this shirt because it was pink. He says he doesn’t care if it is a “girl” color because he likes it. Way to be yourself, little one.
What do you get a boy that refuses to wear normal pants and only wants to wear basketball shorts? These elastic waisted canvas pants are perfect. He didn’t fight me on them (which he would with his jeans) and they provide ample room for horsing around and channeling his inner Calvin- you know like Calvin and Hobbes?!?
I normally think of Carter’s as a place to get good quality baby layettes, onesies and jammies. But I was super surprised at the selection for the older kids and how fresh and trendy (no cutesy animals here!) their clothes were. I still have a few more years that I can shop here for all the kids since they carry up to size 8 in clothing and 3Y in shoes.
Do not miss out on the Count Me In Preschool Sale for up to 50% off until August 31 and the Doorbuster 2 or more: $6 leggings, long sleeve tees, boys terry pants & slogans.

And I like to know that the clothing won’t fall apart on me during the year! What is your favorite thing to back-to-school shop for?
