Did you know... Carter's isn't just for little kids... they make kids clothes up to size 14!!! Yes! Plus you can combine in one cart with OshKosh (also sizes up to 14) to hit the $35+ threshold and get free shipping! Check out their cute holiday outfits and holiday pajamas!!!

My son loved the 4-in-1 Winter coat pictured above. I would say the 4-in-1 coats run somewhat small. Chase is usually a large 12 and he's wearing a 14, which fits perfectly.


I like it when the boys are coordinated without exactly matching, and I loved the turquoise tones in these soft flannel shirts. I would say go one size UP on these - both boys are wearing size 14 here. (Alex has his sleeves cuffed up, Chase does not.)


Alex (left) is wearing 5-pocket skinny jeans. Chase (right) has on the Pull-on Denim Pants. (Those come in toddler sizes too.) In both cases I'd say they run long and we found the pull-ons to be a little skinnier than the skinny jeans! Plus... I love that they pull on so no spending time fiddling with buttons. They are both wearing their regular sizes (14 and 12 respectively) and both have some room to grow into in the length.


My big footed boys now wear men's shoes, BUT if you have a child who is still size 3Y and under, definitely check out the adorable shoes to finish off your look!

Seriously you need this poncho in your life if you live where it's cold like I do. It is gorgeous, warm, super soft, thick and on top of that it's under $20 (!!!!) Yes! If you prefer more neutral colors, my poncho is also here in black and tan. Lots more great, affordable Fall fashion at Walmart, including holiday family pajamas!

The interior of the poncho has a nice grey/blue contrasting pattern which you can see below. SO soft!!! More blanket scarves from the same brand (Twig & Arrow) here. 


The grey sweater I'm wearing is also really cute and comfortable, by Sofía Vergara, here. Jeans are also by Sofía and are here. (If you prefer classic denim to the grey get these instead.) Boots are here (in the color shown and also black) and run true to size.

Sofía Vergara New Fall Jeans

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

This post was sponsored by Walmart and contains affiliate links (I will receive a percentage of commission if you make a purchase through one of my links.) 

These are my  favorite inexpensive jeans, by Sofía Vergara – A bunch of new styles are now available in  Sofía's line here, available exclusively at Walmart!! More of my pics of her other similar styles  here and  here. (If you like a frayed hem,  this style gets nicely frayed after a few cycles through the wash. I also picked up these new  grey wash ones.) Sofía's line is designed to work well for women with various body types. I've found all her jeans fit true to size (if in doubt go up though, I like a tight legging-fit, but I realize not everyone does.) 


This pretty top is also by Sofía, it's soft, comfy and runs a little bit (nice and long in the sleeves and body - which is great for those of us who are tall and like a longer sleeve.) It comes in yellow and black too! Boots are here (in the color shown and also black) and run true to size.

Drew Barrymore's Flower Kids Line

Drew Barrymore has a really cute new line for kids' rooms - bedding, artwork, storage and more! (She also has a regular home line with amazing-looking furniture, see it here.) For Chase's room we picked the sunny alligator bedding set, stuffed alligator, (or, he has named ours, "Mrs. Crockingsworth") and Lab Equipment artwork.


Other bedding sets and framed artwork (I like the science-y ones) available too! The bedding sets have lovely packaging and the comforter is thick and warm.

Here's the Lab Equipment artwork that Chase picked out! Now he'll know what an Erlenmyer Flask is.


If you need pretty, coordinated shelves/storage, check these out also. I'm considering the storage alligator or shelf alligator to match!

October finds from Carter's (up to size 14!!!)

Tuesday, October 8, 2019

Carter's isn't just for little kids... they make kids clothes up to size 14!!! Yes! Plus you can combine in one cart with OshKosh (also sizes up to 14) to hit the $35+ threshold and get free shipping!

My kids are really (really) into super heroes right now. They're obsessed with their hero fightning video game and we're on our way through every hero movie made in the past decade. So I was excited to find these sequin-flip super hero tees for them, in Batman and Superman. The sequins flip really well/easily so they'd be great for little kids too. Do go up if you're between sizes at all, I'd say they run just a bit small. They have Elsa from Frozen too!


Here are the reverse side of the flips. We paired them with Everyday Pull-on Pants (khaki) and 5-pocket skinny jeans. Note, they don't actually run that skinny - fine for normally-proportioned kids. We also like the Pull-on Denim Pants. (Those come in toddler sizes too.)


I asked the boys to pick out a jacket and Chase immediately said he loved this Varsity style. It's nicely lined, perfect for Fall. Available in baby, toddler and big kid sizes so you could do a match with multiple boys! (Chase is a tall 10 year old and is wearing sz 12 here.)


Alex is wearing this  Sherpa zip-front sweatshirt with a soft lining. The smaller boys sizes have hoods too. 


If you have younger kids, definitely do not miss the sale  fleece Halloween footies (so cute!) - Some  only $17 at post time here.
