I participated in this program on behalf of Carter’s and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
It’s hard to believe that back to school is less than a month away. My oldest will be entering first grade and my four year old will be in pre-kindergarten. By far my favorite part of preparing for back to school is shopping for new fall clothes and one of my favorite stores is most definitely Carter’s. I can always count on Carter’s to have on trend outfits that are age appropriate and reasonably priced. And I must say this year I was literally blown away by their new collections.
As a mom of all girls you might be bit surprised to hear the trend I was most excited to see was camo. But guess what. Camo is not just for boys anymore! This fall at Carter’s you will find camo available in nearly every piece of clothing you can imagine – leggings, dresses, pants, shoes, pajamas and more. Plus a great way to add a fun new girly twist to classic camo is to pair it with patterns like vintage florals.
I absolutely adore how the pink buttons on the front of Alleigh’s camo dress perfectly match the roses in her vintage floral leggings. Plus the leaves on the roses coordinate with the different olive tones in the dress beautifully. These simple details seamlessly ties together two very different patterns that I would have never thought to put together on my own. And Alleigh loves it too! In fact she has declared this outfit her “first day of school” outfit which most parents know is a very big deal. I also love that Carter’s gives parents the ability to coordinate all of their kiddos no matter their age differences. Willow just looks too stinkin cute in her stretchy camo leggings with French terry short sleeve top set.
Another fun trend for girls this fall is Tomboy Chic which is all about mixing and matching by taking something athletic and giving it a girly twist. Some examples include pairing up a raglan sleeved sweatshirt with lace skirts, camo shoes with pink shoelaces, or pairing up an athletic inspired shirt with a vintage floral pattern. Alleigh definitely takes after her mama in that she much prefers comfort over style, but at Carter’s there is no need to compromise. Like when we paired together gray leggings with an adorable French terry tunic. The contrasting raglan sleeves give this top an updated athletic vibe while the cuffed sleeves and embroidered heart add a touch of girly-ness that is just right.
And that’s not all you will find at Carter’s this fall. Some more trends include comfortable active wear that is easy to layer for the cooler months ahead with fun graphics and positive messages. Another one of my favorite trends this fall is the vintage prints which feature smaller, sweeter graphics like puppies, ponies, bunnies, and florals on everything from baby sleepers to rain boots. I might have picked up a few of these vintage prints for Baby Harper #4 who will be arriving in November. And just for the boys Carter’s has a new fresh line of plaids taking something traditional and putting a new twist on it. Plus I just can’t help but find little boys simply adorable in plaids – just like little men. Too cute.
One more thing that I just have to share is that Carter’s is now carrying their clothing in bigger sizes all the way up to size 12! These can be found in 62 stores and online as well. I was so excited to hear this news as my oldest daughter is now wearing size 6 and I was rather bummed that she would be growing out of Carter’s within the year, but not anymore. I now have many more years of on trend, age appropriate clothing that is reasonably priced and will last through her sisters to look forward to. Yup, I must say I am pretty stoked!
