 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.

One of my favorite things about the first day of school was always choosing the perfect, back-to-school outfit.  And turns out – the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!  Big M, at nearly 4, is already highly opinionated about her wardrobe choices.  So when I told her we were going to have a Mommy-Daughter date for pedicures and a little back-to-school shopping, she was thrilled!  We headed to Carter’s, for high quality, outfit sets, perfect for play and on-trend for Fall.  There were so many options she loved – I had to make her choose her favorites.

Picking the Perfect Back-to-School Outfit

I have always known Carter’s had super soft, high quality clothing for babies.  What I didn’t realize is they carry up to size 8 and shoes up to size 3y, with coordinating sibling outfits across size ranges!  The style offerings are colorful and modern, while still keeping young children dressed age appropriately.

Preschool Wardrobe Battle

My latest wardrobe struggle with Big M is she only wants to wear dresses, skirts or something that resembles a tutu.  This is tough while also putting her in clothes appropriate for playing at preschool.  The options at Carter’s did not disappoint.  She ran from one display to the next choosing her favorites.  And with great mix and match tops, leggings, dresses and skirts, there were lots of choices to keep us both happy.

I’ll give you one guess as to what display was her favorite, and where we spent the bulk of our budget!  While we may have spent a little more than our complimentary budget, with our gift card, a great deal coupon and an additional $20, we purchased 4 mix and match outfits, an extra two pack of leggings and a pair of shoes!

With such great choices, can you guess what she has settled on to wear for the first day of school?

Picking THE Back-to-School Outfit

After trying everything on, judging it for ‘twirliness’, and allowing me to weigh in slightly on season and temperature fit, Big M finally picked an outfit to wear for the first day of preschool!
