a lesson in individuality

One thing we learn as parents again and again is that our boys are each their own unique personality. What works for one is not always going to work for the next, and that’s what makes being a parent so crazy hard, and also incredibly rewarding. This lesson in individuality is a work in progress for all of us, but it seems everyone is most happy when as parents we honor their individuality versus trying to make them fit a mold. GapKids is all about letting kids be kids, and with their help we got a head start on back to school shopping for two of our favorite and newest Kindergartners, Quinn and Zoey!

Back to School 2014

We showed them their options online and let them pick what they would feel most comfortable in going to school! Here’s what we all put together!


Individuality with Gap Kids


Quinn is 100% original. We are constantly cracking up at the funny questions and stories he comes up with, his love for celebrating and having a good time. Even being the consummate individual that he is, he also loves to emulate and be just like his dad. So picking a New York baseball cap, which is where his dad’s favorite team resides was super cool for him!

Quinn loves to adventure whether it’s on a trip with the family or up into the mountains near his house. This “Explore” top is perfect to represent his adventurous nature. This was also his first pair of jeans in the Gap Kids section! Usually wearing a 5T, it was nice to see that making the jump to Kids was seamless. The adjustable waist option is so nice for those tall and lean kids!


We love Zoey because she is a jack of all trades. She loves sports, legos, dress-ups, and high heels equally. She gets along with everyone and is so kind. Even at 5 years old Zoey is aware and particular about what is “stylish” and getting her dressed was so fun!

Individuality with Gap Kids

Zoey loves being able to be dressed up for impromptu tea parties, but also needs to be able to run and play and cartwheel. She loves having these knit shorts under dresses and skirts so nothing can stand in her way! We love how all of these pieces can be worn so many different ways and are all season-less when added with the right layers!
