This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. Do your kids ever get attached to one piece of clothing and wear it over and over again? My daughter, Kayleigh, has just recently started showing interest in picking out her own outfits, and I’ve noticed there are a few things she likes to wear over and over again.
