Dress Your Kids for the Holidays with Carter's

 The kids’ outfits above and this post is brought to you by Carter’s.

It’s almost that wonderful time of year again…the holidays!

Throughout the years, I have learned to get a few things out of the way, or marked off my list before the holidays actually arrive:

  • buy chocolate
  • eat chocolate
  • buy the kids’ Christmas outfits & outfits they’ll need for all the holiday functions
  • new socks, and new shoes if needed
  • scout a fun place to take pictures for Christmas cards
  • get haircuts, and in my case get my roots done ;)
  • buy more chocolate

Because lets be honest, we Moms can go insane over all there is to do for the holidays.  You know I’m right.  Please consider me as a friend (which I really hope you do, because I think of you all that way) so trust me, you’ll thank me for this reminder.

I may have even saved you a few gray hairs with this post or even a root job.  ;)

One of my favorite things to do is to take pictures of the kids & of course document the holidays.  So when Carter’s contacted me about sponsoring this post, it was absolutely positively a perfect fit for our family, for our Christmas cards, and for sharing with all of you.   Holiday cards, picture taking,  family gatherings, church recitals, school performances are ALL right around the corner.  When you’re searching for what to dress your little ones in this season, Carter’s Holiday Shop is your destination for every occasion.  Whether you’re celebrating your Baby First Christmas, or have toddlers, or school aged kids Carter’s has a beautiful Holiday collection!

Throughout the years, I’ve learned to always stick to classics when dressing my kids for the holidays.  Some years I’ve gone casual, others dressy or dressy casual.  It’s my personal favorite way to dress them, because I like to add homemade touches here & there (as you all know) or so we can use them later down the road.  For example I have dressed my boys in a classic white button downs from Carter’s for many years & have used it for many holidays.  It can even be paired with a pumpkin pie.  ;)

I have also learned that my greatest joy is celebrating the holidays with the kids.  Looking back through our Christmas cards and seeing how much they’ve grown or being reminded of the memories we made are always priceless.  They grow so fast, and documenting and of course sharing your photos are one of the greatest gifts you can give to your family.

If you’re searching for that little extra touch? Carter’s Holiday Shop has an entire selection of baby girl holiday dress up and baby boy holiday dress up with accessories like jewelry, headbands and cute socks to complete your little one’s holiday looks. 

Our first year with the twins we used their birth announcement as a dual Christmas card.   As they grew older, I played around with their holiday attire for our Christmas card photos:  overalls, sweaters or even tutus.   That’s the beauty of shopping at Carter’s.  Because they offer a mix of everything!

    I love the sleeveless print dress, in black. My little 3 year old loves “fancy” dresses, and would wear them everyday if I’d let her.
