We're Going Back-to-School with Carter's (and a Coupon!)

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.



This time tomorrow Nia will officially be a Kindergartner! These past 5 years have gone by so fast and lately Uka and I have been reminiscing over her baby pictures. Over the years we've enjoyed dressing her in Carter's (and now her brother too!), and I was thrilled to learn that Carter's has extended their sizes: they now carry clothing up to Size 8 and shoes up to 3y so the cuteness factor can be extended. Their stuff really is adorable!



We live about 7 minutes from Carter's and Nia was thrilled when we received our gift card in the mail for back-to-school shopping. We planned a special mommy-and-me trip to select a few items. It was our first trip to the store and I was so impressed by how clean and organized it was. Not every item was in the larger sizes, but just enough that both Nia and I were pleased with what we were able to select. I really appreciated how helpful the staff was and especially thorough in making sure we received our discounts (when we visited pretty much everything was 50% off!). Much to my surprise a woman ahead of us in line even helped out with a 25% off coupon allowing us to squeeze in a raincoat and matching rainboots! Shopping can definitely be a team effort, right?

We did a little photoshoot of Nia's favorite outfits in preparation for her big Kindergarten debut. I think she's ready for days filled of play at her new school!





She's mastered buttoning . . . cautiously! 

I can't stand the cuteness! (And yes, I'm totally saving the rain set for Grayson!)
Carter's classic colors always are a favorite of mine, but Nia adores prints plus anything that glitters, like these ballet flats:


The ability to mix and match pieces will give Nia a bit of independence and freedom in her outfit choices this fall making getting dressed in the mornings less of a hassle. We had a dry-run last week during her Kindergarten orientation and she selected this outfit - I think she did a good job!



As a savvy shopper, I like how Carter's puts many of their items in value packs, from leggings to undershirts. Carter's is known for their heritage of quality, and it's a brand that really has longevity for our family (Grayson is still wearing Nia's Carter's items from when she was a baby!). I'm also sensitive to dressing the kids in characters and logos and I appreciate how Carter's keeps their clothing playful and classic.  

Here's to my big girl and her first day of Kindergarten - I know she'll love it!



There's still time to get some back-to-school shopping in with Carter's 50% (or more!) off the entire store ending today September 7. Plus the doorbuster is pretty sweet: $12 5-pack bodysuit, $9 2 pack pants, $10 turn me around sets (9/3 -9/7 only). We really cleaned up at this sale last week! To make it even sweeter here's a 25% off coupon you can use:
