Bargain Shopping For The Kiddos.


Thank you Old Navy for sponsoring my post today about baby and toddler styles. Old Navy is giving you 30% off everything in their baby and toddler summer collection, plus get an additional 15% off in-store.

I’m a firm believer that fashion doesn’t have to break the bank, especially when it comes to kids clothes. I was one of those moms that thought it was cute to buy my daughter a pair of $80 shoes when she was 2 months old, even though I knew she would never walk in them and only put them on for a millisecond.

Honey, those days are long gone, and now it’s all about affordable fashion!

I love that my daughter is a girly girl and loves shopping as much as me, but when I have to constantly keep updating her wardrobe because she’s outgrown all her clothes--those $80 pair of shoes don’t seem so ‘cute’ anymore. What I do instead is try to stick to brands that I know still bring the fashion but also offer parents a reasonable price tag. Some of my favorites are: Old Navy, Gap, Gymboree, Carter’s & Osh Kosh.

Buying clothes that not only can your kids grow into but also use over and over again is a must on my list. When buying my daughter something, I think about how many ways I can style it, (just like I would for my own wardrobe.) If I can use it more than once, it’s definitely a keeper! Take these Old Navy Boots I got for her last fall. I got them for under $20 bucks and I can’t tell you how much use she got out of them! They were the kind of thing I knew would go with just about anything, so I scooped them up quick and boy did it pay off!

When buying my daughter’s clothes I also keep in mind that department stores have some awesome sales. We often go to specialty stores for kids clothes and often forget that department stores not only carry those same brands but also have sales and coupons on top of their already discounted prices! I live in Kohl’s. (I mean like, I would literally camp inside the store if I could.) Not only do they have awesome prices and offer brands like Carter’s and Osh Kosh at an even bigger discounted rate, but you’ll run into some great finds that will get you the compliments and get people thinking you spent way more money than you actually did. Isn’t bargain shopping great? :)

Where do you like to bargain shop for your kids?

I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.
