Back to School With OshKosh B’Gosh.

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received an irresistible promotional item to thank me for my participation. It made me happy and I’m excited and proud to write about it.

Today is the first day of school. First grade.

OshKosh B'Gosh

We dropped her off an hour ago. I was a lot calmer than I expected to be, and a lot calmer than I was for the first day of kindergarten. This doesn’t mean I’m out of the woods, and I’m worried my jitters will come out full-force again like they did last year, but I’m more confident I can handle this. We walked into a crowded schoolyard and saw so many loved ones at once. I got a slight panicked feeling of so much love and emotion, first thing in the morning (not my strongpoint), but then it dissipated as I watched Scarlet flourish and join her friends. It will be ok. In fact, it will be better than ok. We’ve got this.

She’s got this.

One of my best memories of back-to-school, and what might be the BEST memory of childhood back-to-school, is of shopping for new school clothes with my mom. When OshKosh B’Gosh gave me the opportunity to take Scarlet on a shopping spree for back to school clothes, we both jumped at the chance. Shopping together, buying clothes together – what’s not to love?

And of course, we couldn’t forget some important items of clothing for Des:

Since I was a baby and now, OshKosh B’gosh has always proven to be one of fall’s most essential purchases, and especially this year for us! OshKosh B’gosh has plenty of different items of clothing that are designed for today’s active and expressive kids. OshKosh B’gosh has moto jackets and jeggings for Scarlet, as well as glow-in-the-dark graphic tees for Des!

These clothes have thoughtful designs, superior materials and construction, as well as trendy fashions! OshKosh B’gosh was inspired by wanting kids to have everything they need for school – from blue jeans to books – so they launched the “B’gosh Jeanius Campaign.” In partnership with K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, Inc. and DonorsChoose.org, OshKosh B’gosh will give customers the opportunity to donate a new pair of jeans or make a cash donation to students in need for this school year.

All denim that is donated between July 28th & September 16th, 2015 will be delivered to local children in need through K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, and cash donations will be delivered to DonorsChoose.org. The Carters Charitable Foundation will match all cash donations up to $50,000 and will match all denim donations with a new item of clothing. More info HERE.

So give kids a leg up by donating a new pair of blue jeans, or by making a cash donation at the register!

Back to School With OshKosh B’Gosh. — 94 Comments

  1. Aw, we just went back to school today, too and still can’t believe summer vacation is over. Oh and I was actually more of a weepy mess this tear than last as this being Lily’s turn at kindergarten (my last baby), I was definitely feeling it. Definitely just hope it is a good day for our girls today now.

    • Aw! I wonder how I’ll be with Des. I imagine weepy but hopefully in that normal way, and not the traumatized way of last year! I have high hopes.
      Cute little Lily!!

        • Aw! I know it. Well Des still has two years and my whole family is trying to convince me of baby #3 (no lie) and the pressure is so hard.
          If it weren’t for first trimesters, I honestly would pull the trigger.

          • Tamara, I know you know how I feel for myself on this and I could be the Devil’s Advocate on this, as I hated the first trimester as I was sick pretty much for the whole time and actually into about 21 weeks each time with my girls. Don’t miss that one bit to be quite honest!!!

            • 21 weeks?? That is so cruel. With Scarlet it was nothing and with Des, it was seven weeks of seasickness that MIGHT have only been nerves.. jury’s out.
              And still I fear. I fear!

  2. Oh that Scarlet looks too cute and Des is going to look pretty sharp too! First grade, here you go! I think it’s going to be a great one! I had no idea about the “B’gosh Jeanius Campaign. I love that kids/families can directly give at the register. What a great company!

    • Wow fourth grade!
      Scarlet said she didn’t have a good day, but she had a GREAT day. I guess it’s a win! And I got ahead of myself by already filling out her paperwork. Last year I was on another planet. I made up for it by donating goods/money to the school in the spring but I was the most un-involved parent ever.

  3. Aw, good job keeping it together momma! It’s funny because I only knew it was back to school time because I got caught recently behind a school bus and at each stop there were a ton of weepy parents, with cameras, waving…a lot! I was about 20 minutes late for work! I can’t get mad though, that will be me in two years!

  4. Love osh kosh b’gosh. I dressed both my daughter and son in the overalls 🙂 I think I kept a pair of the little ones in the baby box as the cutest memory. Glad first day of school for Scarlett went well! Also, do they make that hoodie you bought for Des in men’s sizes? my boyfriend would live in that LOL.

  5. wahhh!! I’m not ready for my kids to go back to school next week! I’m totally cool with shopping for clothes and I know my girls would totally love the sparkly pink shoes ( I would need two pairs for both girls) but I am just not ready to go back!! Oh wait…I don’t start back till October. Never mind :0)

    • Yup, Scarlet was obsessed with those shoes! She can barely tie them but she loves them so much. We usually go back after Labor Day so it’s weird this year. Kindergarten and daycare both start next Tuesday!

  6. I miss shopping at Oshkosh – I was a frequent shopper at their local outlet store when my kids were younger. I like that their boy clothes and girl clothes are equally cute, although I did try to hand down Gwen’s jeans to James. He always seemed to catch on.

    • She was waiting for the shoes for ages! She saw them online too. So of course we had to get them.
      It gets harder every year so I can imagine 14 won’t be this easy for us!

  7. Your selections are awesome! I’m so happy you got this shopping spree. I mean it’s so timely for back to school. Congrats on Scarlet’s first day! I’m sure you’re one proud momma!

    • Totally timely! I’m at this weird point where I can still buy my kids clothes, but on the other hand, Scarlet prefers to have a say in it. It’s weird! She’s growing up.

  8. I miss shopping at Oshkosh and younger kids clothes! I was a regular shopper at their local store at the mall when my son was younger. I like that their boy clothes and girl clothes are sooo cute!

  9. I love their clothes – so stinkin cute!! I haven’t really done any back to school clothes shopping yet. they are all still wearing their summer clothes because it is suddenly hotter than hades up here. so it will be Fall/Winter stuff that I will have to get. They all need new snowsuits and boots!! have mercy.

    • Oh yeah – it was 77 today and felt “cool.” It will be back up to 90 next week, but luckily AFTER the wedding. Whew.
      I just got hand-me-down snow pants today and it felt like winning the lottery.

  10. I hope Scarlet (and you) had a great first day. I love Osh Kosh clothes – my boys wore them all the time when they were little! And I love the sparkly shoes.

  11. She looks so much older, Tamara.. that’s crazy! I loved getting my “first day of school” outfit all throughout the school years. I only found out recently that the guys don’t really think or care about this – clearly I’m from a girl household!

  12. Oh how Osh Kosh brings back memories! Our girls have had a few items from them over the years and their stuff really does hold up! This is a fantastic campaign they’re running, too. Now to find our local store…
