I love clothes shopping and if there’s one thing I love more than shopping for clothes for myself, it’s clothes shopping for my kiddos!  One of my all-time favorite places to shop for super cute, super affordable kids clothing is Gymboree.   Recently I had the chance to choose a few items from the Gymboree Spring 2013 collection to review and I couldn’t wait to see what Gymboree had in store.

WARNING:  Major cuteness ahead!

If you’re familiar with Gymboree then you know how adorable, affordable and addicting their clothes can be and I know that I’m not the only mom who feels that way…right?  For those of you who might not be familiar with Gymboree, here’s a little more about the brand and a little insight into their inspiration.

Gymboree is all about designing children’s clothes that are perfect for exploring, learning, and allowing kids to be kids and that playful, adventurous attitude definitely comes through in their clothing.  From the high-quality mix-and-match outfits and fun patterns, to the ultra coordinating accessories to match those outfits, you’ll definitely find something at Gymboree that matches your child’s personality, without breaking the bank!

As I mentioned before, I recently had the chance to work with Gymboree (and one of my very favorite PR individuals)  to review some items from their Spring 2013 collection and I really couldn’t wait to chose the perfect outfits for Lil Man and Lil Diva.  One of my favorite things about Gymboree is the selection; there is so much to choose from for boys and girls and the collections are so fresh and fun and full of vibrant colors and adorable themes that you’ll find yourself wanting one of everything—at least that’s how I usually feel.

Lil Diva is a fashionista in every sense of the word so I knew finding just the right outfit to match her personality was key and it didn’t take long for me to find the Bow Dot Stripe Skort (part of the Rainbow Cabana collection)and start building an outfit.  I love the Bow Dot Stripe skort ($20.99) because it’s fun and playful and full of personality, just like Lil Diva and Lil Diva loves it because, well, she happens to adore skorts.  I wanted to choose a shirt that had personality and fun, vibrant colors, but that was a little less busy than the skort and the Sequin Sunshine Ruffle Tank ($14.49) was perfect.  To pull the look together I added the Flower Stripe flip flop in Flamingo Pink ($16.95), (Lil Diva loves the corsage bloom on the top of each flip flop) and the results were definitely Lil Diva approved!


Lil Man is a whole lot less worried about fashion than Lil Diva, but every once in a while I can get him to trade in his basketball shorts and tennis shoes for a nice polo shirt and plaid shorts.  For Lil Man I was torn between two distinctly different collections, I loved the Gone Surfin’ collection, but the Baseball Champ collection was so his style, so I decided to chose my favorite outfit from each collection to review.  The Gone Surfin’ collection from the Gymboree spring 2013 line is surfer chic with a preppy flair (at least that’s what I call it) and I thought it was a perfect fit for Lil Man’s laid back attitude.  The Surf Blue, Surf More Sleep Less tee ($12.99) combined with the Papaya Orange Drawstring Plaid Cargo short ($20.99) is, in my opinion, the perfect spring/summer outfit; it’s super chill, with a little bit of a preppy edge—love it!  While Lil Man doesn’t really know much about the surfer lifestyle in real life, he does know quite a bit about baseball and the Baseball Champ collection is full of looks that are sure to be a hit with your little slugger!  I loved the Baseball Player Pique Polo Shirt in Ballpark Blue ($9.49), paired with the Drawstring Cargo Short in Ballpark Blue Plaid  ($14.49) were a perfect combination and Lil Man agreed, it was his favorite of the two outfits.  He cleans up pretty darn well if I do say so myself!


Of course, these collections are just a few of the many collections in the Gymboree Spring 2013 line, so you’ll find the perfect collection to match your child’s personality at great prices—it’s a win—win!  Don’t forget, it’s Gymbuck$ time—Save $25 on every $50 you spend now through April 21 with Gymbuck$ and get FREE shipping at Gymboree on orders over $75!  Make sure you check out the entire spring 2013 collection at Gymboree, you’ll be so glad you did!
