Back to School With Carters + Giveaway

I have to start off this post by saying that Carter’s contacted me about writing this post. I get contacted by quite a few companies to do sponsored posts and I take this very seriously.   I never write about products or lines we don’t use and love in our house. I have been smitten with Carters since Sterling was a baby.  Their clothes are super cute and affordable, always key when your kids grow up so fast. 

Carters is working on a Back to School Campaign right now (all their current Fall stuff is 50% off!) and I have to say they have some really awesome items for older kids as well as the babies.     Sterling lives in his Carters pj’s.  Like he must nap in a pair and then have a different pair to sleep in at night- he’s crazy particular like that.

I found several cute everyday wear items for Sterling while shopping at Carters that looked to me like CrewCuts or Mini Boden but for a fraction of the cost. 

Case and Point this adorable Dinosaur Tee Shirt.  Tell me it does not look like the more expensive kids brands, but it only cost $7!  My little man loves it.

 [ Carters Dinosaur Tee]

We also picked out this adorable outfit for Fall.  It is too darn hot here to sport it now, but it is going to look so cute once we get some cooler temps.  I love boys in fleece vests.  This vest is comparable to Patagonia and its only $18 right now!  It comes in navy as well, I was tempted to buy both!

Here are a few of my other favorites form the Carters site. From babies to older kids Carters has some really great clothing options.  We picked up the Skeleton pajamas,  Sterling was not leaving the store without them- and they glow in the dark! A real steal at $10!  Plus baby girl is getting the onsies and white pants, so sweet!

    My 17-month-old would love those cute skeleton pjs. I'm all about Halloween already so I think I have to get them!

  2. August 12, 2013 / 11:42 am

    The Carter's outlet in Tanger is one of my besties! I love the denim jacket, chambray tunic, and all of the printed long sleeve shirts for Fall! Great giveaway!

  3. August 12, 2013 / 12:04 pm

    I love so many of their little girl pleated tops – perfect with leggings for easy toddling 🙂

  4. August 12, 2013 / 12:05 pm

    Love the little girl 2 piece jumpers. Carters has the best play clothes for daycare- everything washes well and doesn't break the bank!

  5. August 12, 2013 / 12:11 pm

    I just got James that Sherpa vest! I also found him the cutest layered tee with a bear. Hads lives in their pj's.

  6. August 12, 2013 / 12:17 pm

    We love Carter's at Tanger! All of our pj's come from there! Sweet giveaway!

    BTW-best lasagna recipe ever!!!

  7. August 12, 2013 / 12:19 pm

    We just shopped this weekend- super cute things right now for both girls and boys! I love that Sherpa vest!

  8. August 12, 2013 / 12:20 pm

    I love all their dresses for girls especially the cap-sleeve twill print dress in the pink ikat! Also, love their nightgowns for girls.

  9. August 12, 2013 / 12:21 pm

    We love Carters in our house. Trusted brand for sure. I follow through Feedly. The long-sleeve printed top with the birds is so cute

  10. August 12, 2013 / 12:33 pm

    Let's see….so much to select from but I'd say the long sleeve bear tee with the sherpa vest for my Levi!

  11. August 12, 2013 / 12:39 pm

    With a toddler boy and one on the way, Carters is definitely a go-to for our household! The clothes are a great price and I feel like they've recently migrated from the "Mommy loves me" to more classic styles such as the bear long sleeve tshirt and fleece vest.

  12. August 12, 2013 / 12:39 pm

    I love all the graphic tee shirts, especially the pirate parrot.

  13. August 12, 2013 / 12:48 pm

    My first baby (a girl, like yours!) is due November 4. I already stocked up at the Carter's outlet once this summer, but I am in need of more pants/leggings. I love how they have lots of fun stuff but also some very classic and quality items as well.

  14. August 12, 2013 / 12:59 pm

    We LOVE Carters…so affordable and if it gets messed up you can replace without shedding a tear 😉 We are getting out of the onsie phase and I'm loving their 2-piece Jegging Sets…the prints are adorable for the fall.

  15. August 12, 2013 / 1:00 pm

    Love the Sherpa vest! It will be perfect for fall in the Colorado mountains!

  16. August 12, 2013 / 1:09 pm

    I love the cute printed tops for girls. I already got my daughter the adorable bird printed top. When I bought it I thought it looked like Mini Boden and she loved it!

  17. August 12, 2013 / 1:22 pm

    I love the jersey dot tunic! I'm expecting for February, so this gift card would come in handy. 🙂

  18. August 12, 2013 / 1:36 pm

  19. August 12, 2013 / 1:40 pm
