Can you believe summer is winding down and we are getting ready to head back to school?  We still have a lot of fun to pack into the next two weeks but back to school shopping is in full swing.  

gymboree back to school

This school year, TLSF kids are going into preschool, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th.  Two of our little ones are venturing off to middle school this year.  They are growing up way too fast!


As they grow, their own style shines brighter and brighter.  We can try to guide them in a direction that we think is age appropriate, however putting together their own looks helps them show who they are and we don't want to squash that.


Gymboree has always been a place we can count on to have fun styles that the kids love to wear.  They have everything from basic pieces to patch jackets and sparkly sneakers.

We went online and let each of the kids pick an outfit from Gymboree's new back to school lines.  Here are the results.

The girls love patches and sparkles.  Ellie and Mia laughed when they saw the tunics the other one had picked out.  And Mia's patch jacket is the perfect compliment to Madeline's patch dress.

back to school outfits for boys

The boys go for cool and casual.  Cargo style pants, monster inspired shirts and too cool bomber jackets are their looks for fall.  We asked each of the kids what their absolute favorite part of their outfits were and they were very honest.

Each new school year has so much promise.  On the first day of school you start fresh.  We wanted to know what the kids wanted to accomplish this year.  They shared with us their #KidGoals.
