Preschooler Summer Fashion {A Gymboree Review}.

***Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.***

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Gymboree and asked if I might be interested in trying out a few items from their new summer line of boys clothes. I didn't have to think long on that one, as we're big fans of Gymboree clothes in our house!

Last week I headed to the store and after 45 minutes of contemplating over all of the cute stuff, I came home with two outfits for the boys (and one for Tyler, because we can't forget the new guy!). Here's Tyler's onesie:
How cute are the little embroidered turtles?!?

Moving on to the big boy's outfits....

I am in love with the woven shorts that Gymboree offers. Mainly because of the cotton elastic waistband. You'll see why in a minute....
The boys were SO excited to get new outfits. I have to admit... trying to get either of my boys to wear anything other than t-shirts and basketball shorts is a C-H-O-R-E, so I was kind of worried that what I had picked out for them would be super cute, but not something that they would WANT to wear.

Thankfully I was wrong.
After the boys wore these shorts all day, I realized that perhaps the reason they prefer basketball shorts so much is because they are SO easy for them to get on and off. It makes total sense. Thankfully the woven shorts from Gymboree offer the functionality of an elastic waistband, but they do it in such a way that it actually looks cute too. I'm kind of picky when it comes to shorts and don't normally like elastic waists unless they are gym shorts. Thankfully I actually liked the waistband of these shorts a lot... and obviously the boys did too! And it's always nice when they get complimented on their outfits, which they did on this day when we went out for Brayden's birthday lunch.
For their shirts I decided to just go with simple t-shirts. I wanted something that was cute, and that was comfortable enough that they could play and romp around outside without fearing that it was going to ruin a "nice" outfit. I love that Gymboree offers a wide variety of t-shirts that are not only kid-friendly, but also cute enough that mom can approve of too! And the added bonus is that in my previous experience, Gymboree clothes holds up SO well over time, that I'm sure that these outfits will get lots of use since we're about to have 3 boys in the family.
Thank you Gymboree, for giving us the opportunity to try out your new summer line! We're fans for sure!
