I know in other parts of the country, school has already started. But here in Upstate NY, my girls don’t start until after labor day. My oldest is entering 2nd grade, and my baby will be in pre-school this year! And as every mom says, I can’t believe how quickly time goes and how fast these girls are growing up!
This past week we have been getting prepared for the new school year and I took the girls to the new Henrietta, NY OshKosh B’gosh location (find your closest store here). They each got to pick out one outfit for their back-to-school wardrobe.
Upon arriving home, we then had a great photo shoot with their new clothes. 🙂
You can’t see in the picture, but their leggings have gold glitter in them too, which is a fun sparkly addition that the girls just love! They both got the same pair of leggings.
Even though they purchased just one outfit each, my oldest and I had fun creating 3 new outfits with what we bought with what she already had in her closet. The first outfit is what she got at OshKosh B’gosh – the peasant top, the matching skirt and the glittery leggings.
Hannah, my little fashionista, would love to wear a skirt every single day! Since she has so many skirts in her closet, I am super thrilled that the flowered peasant top she picked out has created numerous new outfits from what she already had – especially with that blue skirt! It’s also sometimes hard to get this girl to agree to wear “boring” jeans, but I’m pretty sure the fancy vest with the peasant top sealed the deal that she will wear it to school.
If you are trying to maximize your back-to-school budget, don’t forget this trick! One new shirt can easily create more than one outfit!
I’m trying to reduce the morning stress now by showing her all of the different combinations she can make with the clothes she has. Letting her mix and max also gives her an opportunity to let her take some ownership on what she picks out to wear each day. And this girl has very strong opinions on what she wants to wear – so if we go over her options now, it will mean less arguing early in the mornings later!

When was the last time you shopped at OshKosh? One thing I really liked in the store was the cute puzzle games that were at the end of the cash registers. They kept my kiddos busy so I could focus on the transaction. It’s so nice to not have to tell them to stop jumping or touching everything while I’m trying to communicate with the cashier!

In case you think I’m some sort of wonder women mom blogger who has perfect kids who pose perfectly for these photo shoots – guess again. If any of you have tried photographing a 3 year old – I’m sure you can relate.
The rest of these “outtakes” is more what the majority of these pictures looked like 😉
And my personal favorite photo outtake of the day…
