My girl's favorite thing is craft time. They love making anything with mommy! They also love jewelry and are always trying to wear mine, so I figured necklaces were the perfect thing to make for them to wear for back to school!

I am not sure who was more excited when our beads arrived, them or me! The colorful box of beads made me so happy! We quickly got to work making necklaces for ourselves and for gifts! The girls each made some "friendship necklaces" for their best friends.

MAKING YOUR NECKLACE:

  • Start by cutting a strip of jersey fabric thin enough to thread through the hole in your beads. 
  • Lay out the beads in the pattern you want. Mix colors and sizes for a great look!
  • Thread the beads on the fabric.
  • Tie knots at the end of the necklace against the last beads.
  • Tie the necklace in a bow at the ends.
  • Slip over your head! Ta da!!
That's it, so easy!

We had some left over so we made some bracelets too using the same method. When we tied the knot in the back, we snipped off the excess fabric. 

Happy making friends!!

Go Back to School in Style with OshKosh B’gosh

* This is a sponsored post for OshKosh with our friends at The Motherhood. As always, I only share brands I love and think you will too!!



It's mid August already and another summer is almost behind us. How do the years go by so fast? Next week 2 of my 3 will be back in school. While I am looking forward to the return of routine, it is always a little bittersweet. Another year passes, my babies get older...but back to school shopping is always a highlight we look forward to together!

This year at Mom2.0 I had the privilege to visit the OshKosh/Carter's headquarters and sit in on an exclusive behind the scenes look at the brand and the fall styles before they hit the stores. 

OshKosh is one of my go to brands for my kids clothes. Their amazing new styles paired with their affordable prices makes them a no brainer for my kids back to school wardrobe! 

I was so excited to collaborate with them on their #oshkoshfirstday campaign by bringing you the latest fall trends for your kid's back to school style! 

10 Must Have's from OshKosh:


1. Denim & Chambray. The OshKosh heritage is in its denim. The pieces are on trend and easy to style! For girls think overalls, denim jackets & skirts. For boys, jeans, denim jackets and chambray shirts for layering! 


2. Girls TLC- tunics & leggings collection. The staple of my girls wardrobes! They are so easy to mix patterns and colors so the outfit possibilities are endless! 100% cotton and age appropriate and on trend! 


3. Uniforms - New to the Oshkosh family. They built fashion around the uniform to show a fun fashion flair while kids are in uniforms! 


4. Oshkosh Original Tees - Designed by the designers in the New York City offices. The graphic tees are another staple of my kids wardrobes! They are easy to mix with denim, leggings and active wear & are great for layering! 


5. Girls Active Wear - Inspirational messages, pops of neon, hearts and stars & glitter!! I am sure this new addition will be a success! 



6. Boys Triple Jumper Pant - So comfortable- elastic waist and functional drawstring. Come in a variety of colors, even camo!

7. Shoes- A new expanded line with sneakers, high tops, ballet flats and camo to match any outfit!



8. Boys Fleece Pant - Another staple. These comfy pants are perfect for active boys and for mixing with everything! Flannel, denim, chambray!!


9. Outerwear- Wide variety of on trend styles and colors! Perfect way to fashionably layer and stay toasty warm!


10. Essential Wovens- Comfortable button down "borrowed from dad" look. One of my favorite ways to layer!! 


How I styled my kids for #oshkoshfirstday:






Oshkosh has another new program called The Oshkosh Jeanius Campaign - they help give kids a leg up! Donate a new pair of jeans or make a cash donation at checkout for a great cause. 

OshKosh will match all denim donations with another item of clothing. All cash donations will be matched, up to $50k.
Oshkosh partners with KIDS and Donorschoose.org to help local kids, teachers and schools thrive.

Campaign runs from July 29 - September 17.


Oshkosh is extending a 25% off coupon to jessicaNdesigns readers on a purchase of $40 or more! I hope you have as much fun getting stylish back to school clothes as I did!

Fill your coffee cans with potting soil & arrange your succulents, leaving room for growth. My studio has a ton of natural light, so my succulents grow well in there!
