We’re moving right along on the Back-to-School Blowout train and I have another fabulous brand to share with all of you today, but first make sure you head over and check out the rest of our BTS reviews and giveaways (all current giveaways are located on our sidebar)…after all, someone’s gotta win…might as well be YOU!


Gymboree has long been one of my go-to brands for buying children’s clothes, no matter the season, Gymboree always has super cute, on-trend clothes that my kids love for a value that I appreciate!  This back-to-school season wouldn’t have been complete without my kiddos headed off to school in their Gymboree best and I’m so glad that they decided to be part of our back-to-school blowout! 
If you’re not familiar with Gymboree (and if have little ones I’m not sure how you couldn’t be) they sell quite possibly the cutest children’s clothes and accessories (and even uniforms) available in sizes newborn to 12 years.  In addition to having some of the most adorable clothes for kids I’ve ever seen, Gymboree’s clothing is super high-quality at a great value—if you haven’t had a chance to check them out, I definitely encourage you to do so, you’ll be so very glad that you did.

We had a chance recently to check out some of what Gymboree has to offer for summer and fall and it was perfect timing for back-to-school so we took the opportunity to snag a few great additions to Lil Man and Sporty Spice’s back-to-school wardrobe.  One of my favorite things about Gymboree is that each season they have several different collections filled with new outfit and mix and match pieces to chose from.  Having options is something that makes this Mommy very happy and I love that they give you options, while also giving you outfit suggestions it kind of takes the guess work out of what will and won’t work together and it’s a huge time saver!  My children have very different styles when it comes to clothing, but I know that I’ll always be able to find a collection that my kids love without stressing myself out running to a million different stores—major plus in my book!
Sporty Spice is definitely a sporty kind of girl, but she also loves frilly, sparkly, girly things too.  Since SS is going into 6th grade this year her style has changed a little bit from the super cute to more edgy, but when she saw the Glitter Koala Corsage Tee and matching Tropical Flower shorts she knew she just “had to have it”.  I love that the tee is cutesy while not being too cute, SS loves animals and she has a soft spot for koala bears so this one was a win—win!  And the fact that we picked up the whole outfit on sale for less than $20 made it even better!


My Lil Man is all boy and he loves everything from superheroes to skateboarding and his style is definitely reflective of those things.  While my son may be all boy, he’s also incredibly picky when it comes to the clothes he wears, I swear sometimes he’s even pickier than the girls—seriously.  Since my son is so particular about his clothes I tend to chose comfortable clothing that show off his style, while also keeping him happy in them and it’s not always so easy.  I love the Shark Patrol collection from Gymboree and my son, who loves sharks, thought it was just the coolest thing ever as well.  Seriously y’all, how stinkin’ adorable is the Jawsome tee?  I paired it with a classic pair of jeans and the super cute  Asteroid Blue Plaid Roll-Cuff shirt (which is part of the Space Voyager collection), I don’t know about you, but I think he definitely makes this outfit look too cute!


The last look I put together features skateboarding as the inspiration and it was by far and away Lil Man’s favorite of the looks I put him in.  There’s just something about a super crisp pair of khaki shorts paired with a bright, colorful shirt that I love and the combination of the Street Surfer Skateboarding shirt with the Skateboard Belted Patch Shorts.  My son loves belts, I swear he’s more of a clothes horse than all of my girls combined, and he loved that these khaki shorts feature a belt, I love them because they' are so easy to pair with so many different tees and when you’re working with a budget the ability to mix and match is super important and Gymboree makes that so easy!


I never can say enough good things about Gymboree, they really are one of my favorite brand for children’s clothing and I’m always extremely pleased with the quality of their clothes, the value for my money and the smiles on my kiddos faces when they head off to school in their Gymboree best—that alone is reason enough for me to love them!
