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. #SpringIntoCarters
Some of the brands I have become most loyal to have been because I first partnered with them on my blog. Carter’s would probably be at the top of that list. This is my third time working with them (see Spring and Fall 2014) and now they are my absolute favorite brand to buy for my son. Not only are those clothes trendy and hip but they hold up INSANELY well with a really active boy. All for a crazy affordable price.
Since all of Silas’ clothes are suddenly looking like he is preparing for a flood (seriously he is growing like a weed) I was excited to head to our local Carter’s store to pick up some new spring favorites. Now we just need spring to show up soon. As Silas gets older he has opinions on his clothes and it was quite adorable to watch him wander through the Carter’s store pointing to exactly what he wanted. It is clear his taste leans towards athletic and preppy (as long as it isn’t too preppy- I could not talk him into a bowtie for Easter no matter how hard I try). I’d say he has pretty darn good taste.
To me the sporty trend is all about clothes you can play hard in. But just because you are playing hard does not mean you can’t look good. Carter’s sporty clothes are brightly colored and can easily be mixed and matched. Can we have a moment of silence for these shoes. We got them last year right before school and Silas has worn them pretty much every day since (and the boy plays HARD). Just last week they got holes in them. They cost under $20 and I was HEARTBROKEN to see that Silas has grown out of Carter’s shoes.
Let’s ignore the fact that my son’s legs are practically glowing they are so white. It’s been a long winter. The first outfit is just a great summer basic. And that shirt will pair fantastic with khakis while we wait for it to warm up. The second outfit is Silas’ favorite of the whole haul. I actually got the jeans on a second trip to Carter’s when I was spending the $20 of rewards I got from the first trip. I got them on clearance and love that they are a skinny fit and a light grey.
I also love that all of Carter’s pants have adjustable waist. With Silas growing so fast I went a size up in everything so they will last longer. While his pants literally fell off when I first put them on, a quick adjustment and they were perfect. Their clothes hold up so well I think I can get a few seasons out of these.
The first outfit absolutely kills me because he is so proud of the fact he put it together. He almost struts when he wears it. The second outfit isn’t his favorite but I love it so much. It totally reminds me of an outfit I had with a similar print but with whales instead of sailboats. It just felt very 80s preppy to me. The last outfit I desperately wanted to pair with a bowtie for Easter but Silas looked at me like he was a teenager and I was his super uncool mom. If only he knew how hip bowties were. I’m still working on him.
I had $100 to spend and was AMAZED at how far my money went when combined with Carter’s amazing sales. I also had a 20% off any $40 purchase so that took even more off my total. And as I stated above, I also earned cashback because I am part of their rewards program. Besides great outfits for spring make sure to check out their Easter shop and their swim shop so you are all set for the upcoming seasons.
