Fun and Green Fall Fashion for Kids

Posted by Javessa Stanton on Oct 17th 2023

It’s officially the cozy warm season, which means all fall fun activities start. From apple picking and wagon rides to corn mazes and pumpkin picking. I always love to match my kiddos when it comes to fun seasonal traditions, and what better place to look for cute little outfits than your local Once Upon A Child. They always have exactly what you're looking for, no matter which season you are currently in.

Shopping sustainably is always the best way to go. Why? Because pre-loved clothing is sold at a fraction of the cost of new clothing, which means you can save money while being more sustainable. Thrifting is one of the easiest ways to recycle items as well.

Whenever I am dropping off my kiddos' gently used clothing, it always makes me happy and warm inside knowing that I'm not completely wasting pieces by just throwing them out but by helping and giving them to another home.

Once Upon A Child collects clothing from preemie to youth 20! They accept shoes, clothing, books, toys, bouncers, swaddles, jackets, snowsuits and lots more. It's always a good idea to check in with your local store to see what their most wanted items are.

Here are a few tips to help you shop sustainably:

  1. Shop secondhand first.
  2. Buy fewer clothes.
  3. Invest only in clothes you really like and need.
  4. Shop locally.
  5. Go natural.
  6. Buy organic.
  7. Shop sustainable brands.
  8. Shop for quality over quantity.

If you have a Once Upon A Child near you, I highly suggest you check them out. I promise you won't be disappointed. Can you believe I found super cute brown overalls for my son Rowan and a beautiful brown dress for Raya for only $17? That's incredible, knowing I'd end up paying double that anywhere else. It ended up making the sweetest little apple-picking outfits for them. On top of that, I brought a bag of gently outgrown clothes that they had and made $40, so not only did I end up getting their stuff for free, but I also got cash back in my pocket.
