Style, Comfort, and FUN Back to School Outfits for Boys + GIVEAWAY OshKosh B'gosh #StyleUp4School

 
This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

I don't know about you, but my boys have a favorite type of pant.  A pant that they'd ask to wear daily if they could.  They actually have a name for them (they ask for their "comfy pants").  Thankfully, because these pants are available in lots of different colors, and are pretty cute, they can work with a lot of different looks.  Today, I am going to show you how versatile these French Terry Pants from OshKosh B'gosh are, with some styling tips and a look at how they have taken us from the end of summer all the way through back to school.  It's not always easy to find kids fashion that is versatile, comfortable, and stylish, but OshKosh has my boys totally covered for back to school this year, from head to toe!  I am also sharing a special discount code and giveaway... so read on!


Casual play wear or nicer school wear, Osh Kosh B'gosh has us covered.


OshKosh also has a great range of shoes for boys and girls!  This blue-trimmed pair is quickly becoming a favorite.

Before I get into the OshKosh looks we styled, I wanted to let you know that through October 2, 2017, use coupon code: OKGB3352 to get 20% off your OshKosh purchase of $40 or more, online or in store (here's the store locator so you can find an OshKosh near you)!

As if you need another reason to give OshKosh a visit for your back to school shopping, let me tell you about the B'gosh Jeanius campaign.  The campaign as an annual effort to support local communities with donated clothing and school supply needs.  Partnering with DonorsChoose.org and Delivering Good, OshKosh Moms, families and friends have collected over $1.1 million and distributed more than 66,000 articles of clothing to impact the lives of over 260,000 students.  You can join the effort by donating a new pair of jeans in-store or making a cash contribution in-store or online at oshkosh.com/bgoshjeanius through September 18, 2017.  Then, share your “shop to give style” on social media using #BgoshJeanius.

Last, but not least: to celebrate back to school and fabulous kids style, I am giving away a $50 OshKosh B'gosh gift card!  To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this blog post by 5:00 pm central next Wednesday, September 6, 2017.  Make sure your email address is included in your comment profile so I can contact you if you won!

Pairing Wine and Music with Cambria’s Benchbreak Chardonnay and Benchbreak Pinot Noir


This post was sponsored by Cambria Winery as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

My husband and I love wine.  Drinking wine is such a sensory experience.  We especially love wine tasting, as being in the vineyards where the grapes are grown, surrounded by the environment that gives them the intricate taste, adds to the experience and enjoyment of the wine.

Art, much like wine, is often intricate, and when savored and examined, can be enjoyed on a number of sensory levels.  Music is one form of art that is particularly sensory.  I can remember times where I have seen a favorite singer in a music hall with great acoustics where I could feel the music as well as hear it.  Then there are those other times when you are with a group of friends having some laughs, and the song that was playing will bring you back to that moment when you hear it again in the future.  Even alone, listening to amazing instrumental or vocal harmonies with some headphones in the comfort of your room can take you places emotionally and physically. 

It is really cool that Cambria Wines has thought to combine these two, and help people experience and enjoy their wines in a new way.  They created the Notes of Cambria four-part video series, which is meant to take you through a unique sensory experience as you enjoy Cambria’s Benchbreak Chardonnay and Cambria’s Benchbreak Pinot Noir wines.  You can see the videos on YouTube here (which are both educational and experiential), then enjoy a bottle of Benchbreak Chardonnay with the Chardonnay Shanty and Benchbreak Pinot Noir with the Pinot Noir Waltz:

High Style on a Low Budget - Pre-Fall Fashion Wish List from SheIn

If you follow @fabeverydayblog on Instagram, then you've probably noticed I've been wearing a lot of clothing from SheIn recently.  I first discovered SheIn last winter when I found an adorable blush pink ruffle bell-sleeve sweater from them at a great price.  After receiving the sweater, I found that the sizing was true, and that the quality was much better than expected.  You never know when shopping online... and when the prices are that good you almost assume it to be hit-or-miss on the fit and quality.  But this is not the case with SheIn!

Fast-forward to now, where I have become a regular SheIn customer on nearly a monthly basis, and have yet to be disappointed in an item I have purchased from them.  In fact, I am wearing about seven pieces from SheIn during the U.K. road trip we are on currently (stay tuned for those pieces in my August What I Wore post coming later this month).

Today, as I am starting to think of my pre-fall wardrobe, I have put together my wish list picks for some great-priced SheIn pieces to transition you into fall.  Click the picture for details on how to shop these items on SheIn.

Nano: Stylish, but Comfortable and Simple Back-to-School Fashion for Boys


Disclosure: I received Nano clothes for review purposes.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience. 

It's hard to believe, but summer is flying by, and it's already time to start thinking of the kids' back-to-school wardrobe.  If you're a #boymom like me, then you know the struggle with finding stylish clothes for young boys (when there appears to be a never ending selection of cute clothes for girls).  Not to mention that simplicity and comfort are key for clothing for active young kids.  That's where Nano comes in - simple style and lots of comfort.  I can attest that both boys and their parents love Nano and what it has to offer!



But it's not just boys - Nano makes stylish and comfy clothes for girls too!  And from now until 9/15/17, when you shop Nano and use discount code fabeveryday, you'll receive 20% off your entire order!  

Check out these adorable outfits (both tops and bottoms) from Nano that my boys are breaking in this week while we're on vacay in London!

Super Easy DIY Hanging Organizer for Your Next Family Road Trip

 
The #FabFam is off to our next adventure today... a road trip around the U.K.!  Since my kids are already road trip and travel troopers, we have found lots of ways to keep them entertained and happy on long trips (see my tried-and-true tips for surviving road trips with young children in this post here).  Since this trip takes us on a plane before a two-week road trip journey in foreign countries, I had to think and pack differently to organize ourselves.  I was inspired recently when I saw this Simple Road Trip Hack post on Modern Mom Life, and decided to try this project, and make it work for my two young sons.

Today I am sharing how I turned one simple over-the-door shoe rack into two hanging car organizers for kid's road trip activities and snacks.
