Preschool Outfits for the Kids + $50 Carter's Gift Card Giveaway!

Thank you to The Motherhood and Carter's for sponsoring this post! And thank you to YOU for reading along and supporting our family!

This is totally fun! Ready?

Carter's asked me to go shopping at one of their stores and check out their new spring line. Ahh!! So fun!
I had the hardest time narrowing down my choices, but did end up settling on an outfit for each of the kids. I'm even more excited, because they start preschool next week, and now have some cute, coordinating outfits to wear to school.

It is SO the little things in life that make me happy!

So here is what I found:

For the girls, I loved these adorable shirts with skirts (and hidden bloomers):

But ended up going with these tshirts and jeggings instead:

I seriously cannot get enough of jeggings. Way. To. Adorable!

Speaking of adorable, I almost bought these sets for the boys:

But at the last minute, I went with these tshirt/shorts combos:

Elijah's shirt says, "Irrestistible," and Caleb's shirt says, "Seriously Handsome." I think they are both adorable! :)

I really wanted something that they could all wear to preschool and enjoy on a regular basis. These sets seemed like a fun way to welcome spring!

Carter's is having a huge Baby and Kid Sale with items up to 50% off from February 18th-March 4th. I also had a 20% off coupon to stack with their sale prices. So here is what I ended up spending:
  • Retail cost BEFORE the sale prices was $140 + tax
  • The sale price knocked my total down to $74.40 + tax
  • Then I stacked my 20% coupon on top of that, and ended up with $59.52 + tax
When all was said and done, I paid 42.5% of the original retail cost. Yahoo! You know I'm a consignment sale shopper, but it can be really hard to find coordinating clothes that way. I loved getting to pick out exactly what I wanted at such a steep discount. Happy Mama!

Shoot...now that I've written this post, I'm wondering if I should have picked up the other outfits too...hmmm...

Feel free to use this 20% off coupon if you plan on visiting a Carter's store to take advantage of their Baby and Kid Up to 50% Off Sale. You can view the Girl's Spring into Pink Collection and the Boy's Little Mate Collection if you'd like to see more! Just remember to stack those savings!
