After hearing reports that even though some of McKenna’s collection were on backorder, they were still shipping, we decided to go ahead and order her a few weeks ago. McKenna’s starter collection arrived with McKenna, her meet outfit and her accessories – her practice outfit and her warmup outfit were on backorder, scheduled to arrive sometime in June. Imagine my surprise when I got a shipping notification for her warmups last week. They arrived and are just too cute! They are only available as part of McKenna’s starter set, but oh how I love them.

The exclusive Warm Up outfit was just the thing to put McKenna in a great mood after all the talk about gymnastics in this house the past few days.

McKenna’s Warm Up Outfit comes with the purple/orange ombre warm up jacket, white athletic pants with a little gather at the ankle and her trademark swoosh, cute athletic shoes, two orange hairbands and a hairstyle card for how to do fishtail braids on McKenna’s hair. If you don’t have the card, check out this video Megan did on how to fishtail braid your doll’s hair.

I don’t know what it is about this color scheme plus the crisp white pants, but I just love it. So does McKenna.

Nice split McKenna but can you just straighten out that back foot? It’s really bad form. Oh, that’s right, you are a doll – you can’t.

McKenna is checking out Megan’s medals and score card from her State Championship gymnastics meet yesterday. Can you tell what places she got? Yep, that’s a second place and two third place awards. Good job Megan.

Over to the beam she goes. McKenna is practicing her beam mount – that’s a fancy way of saying how you get on the beam. And to get off the beam it is called a dismount.

This photo shows the star on her shoulder for Shooting Stars Gymnastics. And I did the Fishtail Braid hairstyle based on the hairstyle card the outfit came with. Fishtail braiding looks hard, but it is actually very easy once you get the hang of it.

Back at the bars, McKenna is getting ready to do some of her conditioning like pull ups and leg lifts so she will be strong enough to make that kip!

On a scale of 1-10, I give this outfit a solid 9.0 – all it is missing are some socks – I mean who wants to wear tennis shoes without socks?
