~I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.~
Earlier this month I shared How to Shop Deals & Back-to-School at Kohl’s and now I am going to show you Teen and Tot’s back-to-school style! Since Tot and I originally went on our own to shop deals prior to my teen getting back from summer vacation, we had to exchange a few pairs of pants in order to get the right size. He grows an inch every time I turn around! I’ll share how easy it is to do exchanges at Kohl’s later in the post. It’s super simple!
My eldest is all about comfort and likes to stick with things he knows. Urban Pipeline jeans have always had the rugged, worn-in and relaxed look that he loves; plus most of the styles come with belts included! So if you want to get them in a half size up for room to grow, you can still do that and they’ll stay up.
My Tot knew his big brother loves Minecraft and while we were perusing styles he had come across a Minecraft shirt that he believed Teen had to have. I know that most kids (and some adults!) are really into the game and Kohl’s has a variety of Minecraft tops.
Teen is wearing the Minecraft Creeper Anatomy Shirt which has a tag-free neckline in cotton. It is in the Boys sizes, but we were able to get him the largest available (size 20) and it fit him just fine. There are other styles available in the Mens department too, but as tee tops and hoodies, they are pretty unisex.
I also picked up a few Henley Hoodie tops that were extra soft. They are perfect for the waning warmth of autumn that the school year brings. I couldn’t find the exact tops online, but they are very similar to the Hang Ten Raglan Hoodies.
Tot was really simple to shop for because Kohl’s has so many fun tops! He personally loves anything that has vehicles on it and they have everything from monster trucks to John Deere tops with toys on Clearance!
Tot’s at an age where he can bounce between the Toddlers and Boys sections. In the Toddler Department we picked up a Soccer Monster Googly Eye Tank from Jumping Beans (my personal favorite brand!) and the OshKosh B’gosh® “Monster Mud Run” Tee, Carter’s Tough Guy Tee and Jumping Beans Heart Breaker tops we picked up in Boys.
Here are a few of the favorites I found in the online shop on sale!
I also grabbed a pair of SONOMA life + style® Twill Cargo Shorts, which include a belt, SONOMA life + style® Twill Pants and SONOMA life + style® Straight-Leg Jeans for when the weather starts to cool off. I really like the Sonoma brand, if that isn’t already apparent, but there were some really cute Tony Hawk jeans/pants in the Boys section too!
I didn’t catch my teen before he left for school on his first day since he wakes up over an hour before me, but Tot and I had a lot of fun setting out his First Day outfit and taking pictures!
The biggest difference in shopping Teens vs. Tots, I think, is that honestly you can pick out anything cute for your toddler and they are going to generally wear it. My little guy had a lot of fun picking out his truck shirts, but he also loved the Jumping Bean tops I chose for him, even if he doesn’t know what a Heart Breaker is.
My Teen, on the other hand, is super picky and seems to grow like a weed! By the time he got back from summer vacation we had to go and exchange his pants for larger sizes! He’s over 6’2″ and seriously needs to stop growing on me. However, if this happens to you or if you pick up the wrong size, exchanging things is really simple!
Making Exchanges at Kohl’s
- You can exchange or return merchandise at Kohl’s with or without a receipt. If you don’t have your receipt then the price may differ on how much your return would be to exchange the items and you will get it on a Kohl’s card.
- You can skip the Customer Service Counter if you can locate the right size for exchange in the same price. If you can, you can simply take it to the register and they’ll switch them out for you.
- If you cannot find the item in the same price/size and have to purchase a different item, then go to the Customer Service Counter for returns/exchanges to receive your money back (or Kohl’s card) towards the other item.
- There is no expiration date on when you can return items, however, if the sale drops below the amount you purchased them for originally then you may only get back the current $ amount.
We weren’t able to find the jeans in the right size and wound up getting a different pair. Customer Service was extremely polite and helpful and it took no time, even though one of the pants was a pain for them to look up.
For 2 pairs of Men’s Jeans and 3 Tops for my Teen and 4 Tops and 3 Bottoms for my Tot originally came in just under $100.00! After having to exchange the $10 on Clearance jeans I found for the up-to 60% OFF $50 Jeans, it came to roughly $120. It was still an incredible deal! I wish I had the receipt but I used it to exchange items and my teen threw it away in a hurry to try on his new pants.
