spring break packing tips

$50 Spring Shopping Challenge & OshKosh Giveaway

This post is sponsored by OshKosh B’Gosh for the Everywhere Society; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. #OshKoshKids #BreakForSpring”
Can you believe spring is finally just around the corner? We had an incredibly short and harsh winter in Kentucky. It was 75 on Christmas and then the temperature plummeted. We were blanketed with snow for nearly 6 weeks straight, which is rough when you live in southern Kentucky. I’m not fond of snow, and I like it even less since I fell and broke my hand when walking on snow and ice. It nearly ruined Gabe’s birthday party, too. School was canceled for a week and half before his party, and I struggled to get invites to classmates. Jeremy’s dad had to take a tractor to the driveway to remove the snow so people could park. Snow is good for a day of sledding, and that’s about it. I believe saying that we’re ready for spring break is an understatement. The real question should be, “Spring break, are you ready for us?” Who’s ready to #BreakForSpring?
Today, I’m sharing a $50 Spring Shopping Challenge and I’m giving away a $50 OshKosh B’Gosh gift card to help with your own $50 Spring Shopping Challenge. You’ll need to scroll all the way to the bottom to find out how to enter for your chance to win. This year I challenged myself to spend only $50 to purchase Gabe a few new outfits for spring break. You can browse through the looks I created using only $50, and maybe you can get a few ideas for spring looks. You can also print this coupon or use the online code Spring16 to save 25% off your order (some restrictions apply).

spring break or bust

Gabe has the right idea, it’s spring break or bust.

The only facet of spring break that I don’t enjoy is packing and unpacking. I tend to overpack, and in the era of huge airline luggage charges, that’s a no-no. I try to create a packing list and stick to it. I also have guidelines for building outfits so that I can be more organized.

Pieces from this look can be paired with some of the other items I purchased.

I normally try to take a portrait type photo of Gabe while we’re on vacation. His next outfit is perfect for a portrait or even Easter celebrations.

I loved the button up, and we actually paired it with the shorts in the last outfit for an outing over the weekend. The Slim Slouch Chambray Chinos are comfortable and they tailor to his slim figure. They’re easily dressed up or dressed down.

This last look is fun for a day of play, school, or even family date night. The new line of Nep Yarn Polos are soft, and they’re flexible for every day wear. The flat-front shorts are available in a variety of colors and coordinate with several tops from OshKosh B’Gosh. These orange shorts also coordinate with Gabe’s ringer tank from the first photo set.

We put this outfit to the test while playing fetch with our new puppy, Kitty, on the farm. Gabe had plenty of room to move and play.

Don’t get too close Gabe, your puppy will give you a smooch.
