Stylish, Colorful, Comfortable and Fun Children's Clothes for Summer from Gymboree {Review & $100 Gift Card Giveaway}

Gymboree logo
Although I had a sickening feeling for a while that spring was never going to truly arrive here in the Midwest, the sun is finally shining, the birds are joyfully singing and there are flowers blooming just about everywhere I look.  

Ahhhhhh.

But along with the warmth, I have been beyond thrilled to ditch the winter coats and snow boots and pull open the doors to my daughters' closets and see the adorable and affordable fashions awaiting them inside.

After all, with the countless number of mix and match outfits and accessories for girls (as well as boys and babies) available from Gymboree in bright colors, there's just no way to see these bold designs and not have a smile on your face.

Gymboree summer collections

Dressing children since 1986, Gymboree clothing is designed with colorful, comfortable fabrics and detailed touches throughout. The brand's fashionable clothing and accessories are designed and crafted to withstand rugged play while letting kids be kids (items are available in sizes newborn to 12 years) in outfits they love to wear.

With everything from clothing to coordinating accessories to shoes and more, it's easy to fall in love with head-to-toe outfits for babies, toddlers and kids at any of the 600+ Gymboree stores across the U.S. and Canada as well as right online at Gymboree.com.

The girls and I were excited to head to our local Gymboree to see the fun spring and summer styles in person and, just from glancing at the bright colors and the sale signs through the windows, we were definitely ready to shop!

Gymboree locations

I mean, come on. The cuteness in every direction? You're killing me here, Gymboree!

Gymboree clothing

Although we didn't spend any time over in the boys' section, a quick glance told me that Gymboree makes it easy to dress him up or down, with a variety of plaids, colored khakis, graphic tees, cargo pants, jeans and much more.

For girls, on the other hand, it's easy to give her lady-like style in kid-friendly cotton. Whether you're looking for floral prints, stripes, bold designs or simply solid basics, you will be sure to find the perfect spring and summer items with all of the sweet girly details she'll love.

Complete the look with flip flops or ballet flats and headbands, jewelry or sunglasses in bright, fun colors and you just can't go wrong!

Gymboree accessories

I love the way that Gymboree makes their clothing so that customers can select just how much they want it to match. If you're into fully matching, then match away! If you'd prefer just to outfit your child(ren) in clothes that complement each other, then it's beyond easy to do that as well.

Gymboree mix and match

While my girls had a wonderful time checking out all of the collections (there are even great sales on brand new items already!) we finally made our decisions (which, ahem, was pretty much everything, since we found we had a really hard time putting anything back), and were ready to head home.

Or so we thought. We had the surprise added bonus of shopping during a Gymbucks promotional time (this one is on until July 14, 2013!), meaning that because we spent over $100, we received $50 in Gymbucks — essentially meaning $50 in free Gymboree cash to be redeemed between July 18 and 28, 2013. Score!

Gymboree review
Missing from photo: two bracelets, as each of my girls are EXTREMELY reluctant to ever take theirs off.

I wasn't surprised when we arrived home and I laid everything out and noticed all of the bright colors and whimsical patterns, as those are typically what my daughters pick out.

Along with the Flower Swirl Tankini and Flowered Hat that Big Sister E really needed for summer, we picked up four tops, one dress, one pair of shorts and two bracelets... and love each and every one!

How can you not be enamored with the way that Gymboree can provide the complete looks (with prices that can't be beat) that make us all happy?

Gymboree girls summer clothing

Whether your family has big plans for summer or you simply are as eager as I am to usher in the excitement of spring, Gymboree is sure to have plenty of adorably sweet items in their collection that will showcase bold, bright color, crisp classics, fresh florals and many more that will work for the little personalities in your house.

I love the way that each item looks great from afar... but then when you're close up you can also appreciate all of the small touches and details that went into it. It just doesn't get much more fun and summery!

Gymboree details

Be sure to check out all of Gymboree's clothes, shoes and accessories for babies through big kids in store and online and follow @gymboree on Twitter and Gymboree on Facebook for outfitting ideas, great sales, deals, special events and more!

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be prepared to shop all of the amazing options in store and online from Gymboree as well, because...
