Summer is here and I’m sharing a few of our current fashion favorites for girls. I kept the list short and sweet this season. A few brands are old favorites and a few are brand new to our house. Thanks to Instagram, I’ve found some cute items for the girls this summer and can’t wait to share them:
My girls live in dresses in the summer. All day, every day. Each summer I like to find a few special dresses I know the girls will really like and still be comfortable for lots of play. Since they spend just about the entire day outside lately, I was on the hunt for a dresses that would also be thin/ keep them cool. These three are our favorite dress finds this season:
Pink Chicken: We got our first Pink Chicken dress as a gift about 4 years ago. This is the 1st summer it doesn’t fit one of the girls. After 4 summer it still looked like new and was always their favorite dress to wear. This summer we got new Pink Chicken dresses. They are my favorite for travel because they fold up so small. They are also really comfortable for the girls to wear but look nice too! They wear them as pool coverups and also out to dinner.
Wren and James: When you picture sweet summer dresses to run wild and free in the backyard in… you probably picture the gingham dresses from Wren and James (or at least I do). I spotted these thanks to Instagram and love that they are designed by a mom who first made them for her little girl. They are beautiful but also light weight and great for playing. Be sure to follow @wrenandjames on Intagram because you just might catch one of their amazing “flash sales” or other deals.
Allegra and Luca: Another great find thanks to Instagram! The dresses from Allegra and Luca are festive, fun and perfect for summer. Again, they are really light weight and keep the kids cool. The also fold up nice and small for trips and look cute for the beach or summer parties!
Free Babes Handmade: I recently discovered this shop thanks to Instagram and think they have the sweetest bows for little girls (and babies). Their summer colors are really pretty and what’s cuter than pigtails with bows in the summer time?
Polka Dot Posies: Since Maggie is rarely pictured without her big bow headbands, I often get asked where I find them. We get all of our headbands and most big bows from Polka Dot Posies. I discovered this site years ago and it’s remained our “go to”. The big bow headbands are only $4 which is key when it’s the only accessory your daughter likes to wear!
1. Just like every other summer, our #1 sandal is Sun San Sandals. They wear well for play and look nice for dress up too. The only difference this summer is that I discovered you can easily order them from Stride Rite! These sandals always last us all summer.
2. Another summer shoe that’s great for girls are Cienta. They are light weight, can be worn without socks. Even though they are sneakers they look adorable with dresses.
3. For days of long walking, hiking, climbing etc, we are trying out Tsukihoshi this summer. So far they are awesome shoes and holding up really well to lots of dirt and play. We got a Mary Jane style but they have all different styles and colors. They are quick dry fabric which is key in summer.
Do you have any fashion favorites for girls this summer?
