Do It All Wearing B’Gosh Believe Collection

No matter your kids’ activities this Christmas – from decking your halls to their school holiday concert, from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day – the B’Gosh Believe holiday collection has the perfect festive assortment. Whether you are celebrating the season in balmy Arizona or the brisk temperatures of New England, there are layers and options for all temperatures. I love the navy, red and gray color combinations with touches of sparkle which definitely say Christmas, without being so overtly holiday that they can’t still be worn through the rest of the winter. And best of all, they wash. wear, and hold up to your child’s rough and tumble play.
