Back to School with Gymboree

I dreaded school as a kid. I wish now that I would have appreciated it more, took more away from it, and involved myself more. But, that’s another story.

If there’s one thing I could count on looking forward to school starting each year it was back-to-school shopping. That amazing moment when you hit the shops, collect your new items, and pick out the outfit that will make you look like the coolest kid in school.

Okay, maybe the outfit can’t make you the coolest kid in school, but it sure doesn’t hurt to try.

So with back-to-school quickly approaching, it’s time to start doing some shopping with Zadey.

I have to tell you — shopping for one isn’t so bad. It’s in the next few years when we shop for three that I’m worried about.

Shopping for Zadey

Zadey has a very tiny frame. She is 8 years old, 47 lbs, and 50 in tall. Basically… tall and itty bitty.

Because of her size, shopping has some serious challenges. It’s like we need one size for pants, and another for her waist. And though a great deal of manufacturers have gotten on the band wagon of putting elastic inside of the waist, to make it smaller, her most favorite items don’t usually have that option… skirts.

Luckily, Gymboree is on board with getting the right fit for every body size. And last weekend, Zadey had herself a grand time visiting the Gymboree store and picking out a few new outfits for back to school.

Just check out her and Gymboree’s adorable style!






For just over $100 we purchased:

  • 5 Shirts
  • 1 Skirt
  • 1 Hoodie
  • 1 Pair of Jeans

It’s a great start to our shopping, and everything she needs to kick off her school year right! And this year, Gymboree is featuring really adorable collections like Ready, Dress, Go and Brightest In Class for girls. And for the sweet boys in your life, you must see the Space Voyager and Camp Yosemite collections!

Gymboree is cute, fun, stylish, comfortable, and a must for your kids this year for back to school!
