Hi, my name is Sarah and my kids are more trendy than me.
I think we can all agree on what our kids’ favorite part of back to school is... THE CLOTHES! Thinking back to my childhood I was all about back to school shopping. It was so great getting to pick out all new clothing and a new style. We could start fresh and be whoever we wanted to be! Now fast forward 20 years and my kids are getting to do the same thing. They are not going to public school but I still thought it would be fun for them to pick out some new clothes to ring in the school year. We were so excited to partner with Gymboree and shop their all new styles. Just like my kids, Gymboree got a fresh new look and I have to say I am completely in love!! I kind of wish they had clothing in my size! One of my favorite things is that their clothes are very versatile so whatever my kids pick out for the day will look good together. We know we have all been in the situation of seeing what our kids come up with and just cringing. Luckily that wont happen anymore! It’s really a win win.
Something else that Gymboree has launched is their Made You Smile app. It can connect to their Made You Smile line of graphic tees and make them come to life through augmented reality. My kids couldn’t stop laughing when playing with this app. Best of all though is through the app you are enter the Surprize Surprize Sweepstakes and each time you chose at their store you are guaranteed to win a prize! I’m not the only one that gets pumped about this stuff right?! In school I was never the kid that won BINGO (that was totally rigged right?!) so I love that they have given each person a win with every purchase!
So now the big question is, each year when school started and you were able to go back to school shopping did you like to reinvent yourself or did your style stay pretty much the same? Secondly, what style do you remember most from school?? I remember choker necklaces and the first time I saw someone wear holes in their jeans. Oh! And the messy bun, how was it that some people just knew how to pull off the most perfect messy bun? Well, jokes on you 15 year old cool girl at school, I rock the messy bun every day like it’s my job
