Getting Ready For Spring Break With OshKosh B’gosh #BreakForSpring

brooklin jumping for joy beach oshkosh outfitWe are thrilled about spring break, and with three girls I know it’s time to update their spring wardrobes and get them ready for all the fun of a spring break family vacation. This post is sponsored by OshKosh B’Gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. ohh kiosk spring breakLast week as we started packing for our spring break trip to San Diego so I took our girls shopping at OshKosh B’Gosh. They had such a great time picking out all the things we needed for our trip.

Check out our video from our shopping trip and a little fun.

ohh kiosk b'gosh spring 2016 outfitWhat I like about OshKosh B’Gosh is that each of our girls can find things they like that fit their own style. I allowed them to pick out of their own clothes for our spring break trip. Especially with girls this ensures they will actually wear the items that are packed for them. Also having pieces like denim tops and shorts that can be mixed and matched is helpful so you don’t over pack.summer sandalsOne of my best tips for packing with small children is to only pack items they’re going to use on the trip. One pair of sandals can be used for multiple outfits, also using one bag for all three of my children’s clothes saves on packing multiple bags.ohh gosh spring 2016 outfitsEven if we are headed to a beach destination I always pack an outfit that involves pants. A light top is also a favorite of our girls, so I wasn’t surprised when Brooklin picked this embroiled top from OshKosh. She also picked fun bracelets to accessorize with and brightly colored pants. We just happened to stop for a family picture after checking out the tide pools. our family spring 2016Even though it was a warm day the pants allowed Brooklin to move and climb. We had such a great time watching for whales and exploring the tide pools. For us this is what spring break is all about, enjoying our time together close to the water.   2We really enjoyed San Diego and just played at a local park downtown and had such a fun time. That’s the best part of family vacations is making memories together. That’s what we always look forward to most during our trips. We just happen to always find fun things to do, that’s why we like just getting out to explore California. 6It’s safe to say our girls had a fun day playing. It’s nice to have clothes that not only look great and hold up well but are comfortable enough to allow you to play. It’s all about staying comfortable and stylish and I really liked each of the outfits our girls picked from OshKosh. mia oshkosh outfitThe best part of every trip is just spending time together. So I don’t stress too much about packing or planning, make time on your vacation to just explore. It’s in those moments your family has the most fun!dad on side with kidsYou can find these and other great styles and everything you need for spring break at OshKosh B’Gosh.

    No tips as I am a single girl packing solely for myself. I literally only travel with one carry on and never check luggage!



  2. Laurie Emerson on March 25, 2016 at 7:59 pm

    My best tip is to make a list of what you need for the trip and stick to it.



  3. Leslie Davis on March 25, 2016 at 4:49 pm

    Make a list



  4. Carolyn Daley on March 25, 2016 at 4:16 pm

    My tip includes bringing a power strip or multi plug outlet. Some hotels do not have enough outlets for everyone to charge their phones and/or tablets.



  5. jules m. on March 25, 2016 at 11:33 am

    those packing cubes are really helpful! i dont travel much but i always keep samples of things i receive in the mail (shampoo, toothpaste) for my carry on liquids bag. they are always under the limit so i dont have to worry.



  6. Amy Z. on March 25, 2016 at 9:36 am

    My tip is to include warmer clothing in case the weather is colder than expected!



  7. Erica B. on March 25, 2016 at 5:44 am

    Pack for different types of weather.



  8. Keeley Sullivan on March 25, 2016 at 3:31 am

    I try to double check what we will be doing every day and making sure there is an outfit for it. Its all in the double check!



  9. Lisa V. on March 24, 2016 at 10:45 am

    Make a list and check it twice.



  10. susan smoaks on March 24, 2016 at 7:42 am

    My best tips are to make a list and check it twice. you do not want to forget anything.



  11. Cynthia R on March 23, 2016 at 6:26 pm

    My tip is still pack a light jacket or sweatshirt or sweater. The nights and mornings are still chilly.



  12. Jillian Too on March 23, 2016 at 4:40 pm

    Pack clothes that can be mixed and matched in case you need to switch out a stained or messy top.



  13. Carrie Conrad on March 23, 2016 at 11:56 am

    Don’t forget to pack sunscreen! Make a list and check items off as you pack.



  14. Aubrey on March 22, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    My best tip is to pack light and bring sunscreen .



  15. Betsy K. on March 22, 2016 at 11:38 am

    My best tip is bring mix and match colors so you can save space. Don’t forget extra socks!



  16. Rebecca Orr on March 22, 2016 at 11:37 am

    My tip is to pack at least two extra outfits for each person in case of accidents. I also make sure to pack a large bottle of sunscreen and both sandals and a pair of sneakers for each member. And if the kids are willing to wear them….hats and sunglasses.



  17. Kiwi on March 22, 2016 at 11:13 am

    I am loving the kiddie fashion show! This was the cutest and OshKosh is so trendy noW!



  18. Danielle Marie on March 22, 2016 at 12:07 am

    Bring extra socks and underwear. Also a spare swimsuit.



  19. Stephanie Liske on March 21, 2016 at 7:40 pm

    Have a List. This way if you remember something later you can make sure it’s on the list. Then, you can check off what you’ve packed and make sure you have everything.



  20. Shayna on March 21, 2016 at 10:00 am

    DON’T WAIT UNTIL LAST MINUTE !! PACK AHEAD OF TIME 🙂



  21. amy stonger on March 20, 2016 at 2:34 pm

    I always make a list and check it twice!



  22. Amber S. on March 20, 2016 at 1:01 pm

    My best tip for packing for Spring Break is to make a list and go over it to make sure nothing is forgotten.



  23. Cassandra Eastman on March 20, 2016 at 9:53 am

    I make sure there is a washer/dryer in the room we’ll be staying in so I can pack light since we have 3 kids!



  24. Becca Wilson on March 20, 2016 at 8:22 am

    Packing for Spring Break can be tricky with three kids of varying ages. I have to make sure that I have something that will keep them all occupied on the trip and of course a cooler with snacks and drinks.



  25. Caroline B on March 20, 2016 at 7:49 am

    I make a list and stick to it!



  26. lana on March 19, 2016 at 7:33 pm

    We do not go on spring back vacation. I just take my kids to different activities around the town. When Packing for vacations I like to pack just what I need and not more. But with children its hard to do that



  27. Kristine on March 19, 2016 at 7:18 am

    I always pack clothes that can be worn interchangeably. Oshkosh is the perfect place to get outfits like this since their clothing lines offered all “match” a specific color/theme. Love Oshkosh for all our kids!



  28. Andrea v on March 19, 2016 at 6:19 am

    Make a list of items and start packing early. I also roll the clothes to take up less room.



  29. Laura m on March 19, 2016 at 4:53 am

    Try to pack as light as you can but be sure to make sure everyone has one extra outfit just incase.



  30. Claudia Krusch on March 18, 2016 at 6:35 pm

    My best tips for packing for spring break vacations is to pack a jacket or sweatshirt for cooler nights and basic pieces like jeans and shorts! Loved your post!



  31. Katie on March 18, 2016 at 3:19 pm

    My best tip is to put all outfits together ahead of time and roll them together and place in suitcase. Outfits ready to go without many wrinkles!



  32. Kristin Goodson on March 18, 2016 at 6:00 am

    Always bring more clothes than you need. Sometimes weather in the spring is unpredictable. I always have a trashbag in the car so there isn’t trash all over my car. I roll my clothes to save room and I try to bring wrinkle spray so my clothes don’t get wrinkled.



  33. Bonnie @wemake7 on March 18, 2016 at 5:27 am

    Those clothes are wonderful. Definitely making sure you have everything before going on Spring Break is a great tip.



  34. Ashley C on March 17, 2016 at 6:22 pm

    Always pack an extra outfit! You never know when you might need one!



  35. Deborah G. on March 17, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    My tip is to have a checklist made by writing things down as you do them the days before you pack! Folding and rolling clothing is also a huge space saver!



  36. Amanda A on March 17, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    These tips are great. We are leaving for the river for a few days during Spring break. I think I am packing everything but the kitchen sink. I pretty much pack a separete bag for everyone and like to organize outfits with unies and socks in zip lock bags that I reuse each trip.



  37. latanya on March 17, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    bring extra clothing and prepare for different weather



  38. Up Run For Life on March 17, 2016 at 1:57 pm

    My boys went to New Mexico for a few days. I ended up making sure my son had enough clothes. With temperatures still in the lower 40s, I made sure he had warm pants. Even though he rather wear shorts. I also made sure he had extra clothes in case of an accident.



  39. Ann Bacciaglia on March 17, 2016 at 10:18 am

    Making a list is a great place to start when you are going away. I always feel like i have forgotten something.



  40. Miss Happyfeet on March 17, 2016 at 9:46 am

    a list is crucial, and try to roll the clothes too! and the kids are so adorable!



  41. Lynndee on March 17, 2016 at 9:21 am

    Such cute girls! Oshkosk Bgosh is one of the few stores that I love to go shopping for my son. Thanks for the giveaway! I’m definitely going to join.

    I am big on making lists 🙂 That way you see it all out in front of you!



  43. Lauren on March 17, 2016 at 6:07 am

    Roll your clothes to fit more in the suitcase.



  44. OurFamilyWorld on March 17, 2016 at 2:23 am

    Oh goodness, OshKosh has such cute clothing! Looking at all of these cute outfits, not only am I ready for spring but I am ready for vacation. My little one is in need of some new duds since she keeps growing by leaps and bounds. Entering your giveaway and planning a trip. Thank you for sharing the cuteness.



  47. Amanda L. on March 16, 2016 at 6:18 pm

    I would say to check the local weather conditions to make sure you pack appropriate clothing. If it’s going to be rainy, make sure you have pants and a jacket.



  48. Liz Mays on March 16, 2016 at 5:19 pm

    I’m loving the new gear! It’s so cute! Oshkosh has some awesome spring clothes right now! Th



  49. Jeannette on March 16, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    Those are such cute outfits! We have Spring break in a few weeks and I haven’t gotten warm weather clothes for either of the kids yet! Looks like I need to make a trip to Osh Kosh!



  50. Melissa M on March 16, 2016 at 1:27 pm

    We pack clothe in ziploc bags. I can fit more outfits in a suit case that way.



  51. Dandi D on March 16, 2016 at 11:31 am

    My tips would be to pack plenty of snacks and water.



  52. Paula Schuck on March 16, 2016 at 11:19 am

    Your girls are so cute! I used to dress my kids exclusively in OshKosh. I just loved how totes adorbs my kids looked in them.



  53. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle on March 16, 2016 at 11:16 am

    Oshkosh is my favorite brand of kids’ clothing. Their styles and colors are always on point.



  54. Robin (Masshole Mommy) on March 16, 2016 at 10:01 am

    We love OshKosh. I shop there all the time for my boys. They always have super cute stuff.



  55. sandra on March 16, 2016 at 7:30 am

    make a list first and then pack. also do a few days before you leave so you are not scrambling at the last minute



  56. Brittney House on March 15, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    I would to dress for the weather and also the unexpected weather.



  57. Melanie Montgomery on March 15, 2016 at 8:30 pm

    We prepare for different weather conditions



  58. Dawn Monroe on March 15, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    My tip is to research the weather and take extra shoes for the kids.



  59. Terri Irvin on March 15, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    You can back much more clothes than you think, in travel backpacks, and you want to roll the clothes. Also do not overpack! Even if you have kids. Put shampoo and sunscreens in little plastic bottles.



  60. Jennifer Marie on March 15, 2016 at 7:06 pm

    Take snacks and a variety of clothes.



  61. Kyl Neusch on March 15, 2016 at 6:47 pm

    to prepare for different weather



  62. Thomas Murphy on March 15, 2016 at 6:37 pm

    Make a list so you don’t forget anything.



  63. Natalie on March 15, 2016 at 5:19 pm

    My best tip for packing for spring break is to pack your suitcase only 3/4 full or less so that you have room to bring souvenirs back with you!



  64. heather s on March 15, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    Make a list of all you need and get as much ready as early as possible



  65. courtney b on March 15, 2016 at 3:10 pm

    make sure you pack a bunch of extra clothes for your toddlers/babies because they will make a mess ! !

    thanks! xoxo



  66. Sarah Sobocinski on March 15, 2016 at 2:53 pm

    Pack light because most of the time you don’t use half of the stuff you pack.



  67. Kelly D on March 15, 2016 at 2:46 pm

    My tip is to go through your routine and think about everything you will need to get through the day and pack it.



  68. Rae C. on March 15, 2016 at 12:27 pm

    Put the finished packing list inside your luggage. That way you can make sure you’ve packed up everything from your room for your trip back home,.



  69. Laurajj on March 15, 2016 at 10:33 am

    I always write a list down and pack ahead of time as much as I can. I pack the clothes we are taking ahead of time…so we do not wear them and have to do laundry loads the night before we leave.



  70. Lisa E on March 15, 2016 at 9:42 am

    My best tip is pack lots of snacks for the kids and get a portable DVD player or Kindle for the car ride!



  71. Monique Rizzo on March 15, 2016 at 9:34 am

    Make a master list and triple check it!
    Thank you for the chance.



  72. Jennifer Reed on March 15, 2016 at 9:30 am

    Keep a list and stick to it.



  75. Nicole Vosburgh on March 15, 2016 at 7:38 am

    I always roll our clothes as that helps create more space in our luggage.



  76. Carolyn Benson on March 15, 2016 at 6:35 am

    My children are grown so they are the ones packing for spring break, but it’s a good idea
    to roll your clothes instead of folding, it keeps them from wrinkling.



  77. Richard Hicks on March 15, 2016 at 6:04 am

    My tip would be to take healthy snacks to save money



  78. Stephanie Phelps on March 15, 2016 at 5:10 am

    My best tip is to take one outfit per day and at least 2 bathing suits! Always check your list and bags multiple times!



  79. Cynthia C on March 15, 2016 at 5:03 am

    I mentally go through a day and make sure everything I need is in the suitcase.



  80. April on March 15, 2016 at 4:47 am

    Make a packing list so you have everything you need!



  81. Adrienne Gordon on March 15, 2016 at 3:45 am

    Make sure to prepare for different weather.



  82. Janet W. on March 15, 2016 at 2:43 am

    My best tip for packing for spring break is to pack lots of snacks ahead of time. That way you’re prepared for the car ride and don’t need to make any more stops than needed, and you also save money ahead of time.



  83. shelly peterson on March 14, 2016 at 9:15 pm

    I definitely make a check list and make sure to pack snacks and entertainment for the kids.



  84. Ellie Wright on March 14, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    Make a list and check items off as you pack. Then keep that list for when you re-pack to check again.



  85. harolde on March 14, 2016 at 8:13 pm

    Make a list early and keep updating it.



  86. HilLesha on March 14, 2016 at 8:01 pm

    I carefully and tightly roll my clothes instead of folding to them to create more space in my luggage, while staying organized. It also helps keep my clothes wrinkle free!



    • Bettie on April 17, 2016 at 2:09 pm

      Why do I bother callnig up people when I can just read this!
