B’Gosh Baby

by jessicaturner on March 11, 2009

I spent most of my childhood growing up in Oshkosh, Wisconsin – as in Oshkosh B’Gosh. B’Gosh is very popular in Wisconsin, and maybe was even more popular in the 80s when I was a kid. I had a lot of cute B’Gosh stuff.

Therefore, it was only fitting that my mom buy Elias is first B’Gosh overalls. I was worried that he would grow out of them before it would be nice enough to wear them, but it was 80 in Nashville yesterday, so you bet I put those B’Gosh bibs on him.

And then I took pictures. (And Matthew took pictures of the two of us.)

Weird, I know. :)

Not weird at all! I do that same thing! In fact I need to make my way to the OshKosh store soon. Both kids have grown out of their bibs and I need shorts this time. We have an outlet in town and that is so nice to have.
Our first family picture featured the kids in their oshkosh, Charles was in Blue and Isabella was in pink. It’s the cutest picture.

So stinkin cute! I love that brown!I miss my kids wearing oshkosh bibs :( My daughter had the pink & white striped dress style when she was Elias' age :)
It is funny to me that you call the bran B'Gosh when I have always gone my whole life calling it OshKosh.
I had no idea there was a town by that name! :)

Seriously, Jessica, Elias is precious! He could so be a B’Gosh baby model :o)

I love any and everything Oshkosh. Most of my kids clothes were Oshkosh. My now twenty year old had those classic stripes that Elias is wearing in several colors. Never mind the regular denims and the prints with matching shirts. Even much of his dress stuff for church was Oshkosh. I handed them down to the other 2 boys because they last forever. Of course my daughter got all the cute girly ones. My last 3 were 90s babies and Oshkosh stuff was still popular then. I’ve saved a few back for their kids. Because, you know, a great pair of overalls never goes out of style (at least on a baby/kid). Or maybe because I’m just a little strange.

Anyway, I love the pictures. Elias is adorable as always. And thanks for the memories of my sweet babies in their Oshkosh B’Gosh. (I could even sing you the jingle.) Now that’s weird! Or perhaps slightly obsessed. I did tell you I love Oskkosh everything. :)

Too cute and would any of us expect anything other than pictures?!?! I don’t think so! Therefore, please continue snapping away any ‘ol time you’d like…you know, just like you do now!!!

My mom loved OshKosh, as well…especially since we used to live in WI. So, part of our (me and my sis) wardrobe, too!

Give Elias a BIG squeeze for me!

I love the OshKosh bibs and think they are every so cute. I lived in Waupaca WI for about a year after marriage, and we used to drive down to OshKosh. Of course, I believe that year every one of the nieces got something from OshKosh for Christmas.

Elias is so handsome in his bibs!

Sooo adorable! His little expression when you are kissing him is priceless. I love B’Gosh! There’s just something about little boys in bib overalls. When we found out we were having a boy, I bought him a teeny pair of them.
