Simply Colors: Review and Giveaway

Dressing my kids is one of my favorite hobbies….literally!  My husband has learned not to look in their closets anymore because they have more clothes than both of us combined.  I am always looking for things that set them apart from the crowd, are well made, and look timeless.  So, I was very excited to be asked to review a shirt from Simply Colors! From the website:  “Let them express who they are!  Print their own message on cool clothes they love to wear!”

Simply Colors is COMPLETELY customizable!  You choose the article of clothing for your son, daughter, or baby, and the options are endless!  Short sleeve tees, long sleeve tees, sleeveless, rugbies, polos, onesies, socks,  beanies…..and more!  Once you have your item selected, you choose the color of your clothing, and then type in whatever text you want.  The website has examples  in case you are stumped, but let your imagination go wild!  But wait!  Your options aren’t exhausted yet!  You also get to choose the font style for your wording , font size, AND the font color!  They also have adorable illustrations that you can use with our without your text.  The coolest thing is that the website is set up so that you can see your work in progress!  Simply Colors kindly offers you very good suggestions before you get started.   I sat and played with a bunch of different choices before I made up my mind:

I'm FIVE!  (well, almost!)

I'm FIVE! (well, almost!)

Emily, who has been SO excited about her approaching 5th birthday, screeched like a howler monkey when she saw it (which means approval in girly code) and HAD to put it on right away.  The first thing I noticed after I got over how simply adorable it is, is how SOFT it is.  I have purchased European clothing for the kids before and love the high quality, and Simply Colors is no exception.  The cotton is super thick and super soft, sooo comfy and cushy.  Emily loved it.  The shirt she is in is a 5-6 years and I found the sizing to be very generous so that’s always a good thing too!

Simply colors offers gorgeous gift boxing to set your gift apart from the rest, and is an excellent gift option for any event you have coming up.  They had lightning fast shipping….so fast I was confused when I saw the package because I had JUST placed my order days before!

Simply Colors has very generously offered a giveaway for one lucky Not-So-Blog reader!  The winner can select a short sleeved tee and pick his or her own color and personalization!  How cool is that?  Start thinking of your options now…..with so many adorable choices, it’s simply impossible to make up your mind!
