My 15 Favorite Summer Fashions For Toddler GirlsLauren Hartmann
Things are heating up here in Portland, and even more so in other parts of the country, so it was about time to update Fern’s closet for the summer. A few pairs of shorts, a plethora of tanks, and a few pretty and airy dresses were just what she needed. Here are a few of the summer fashions that have made the cut for Fern’s warm weather wardrobe and a few that are still on her wish list.
My 15 Favorite Summer Fashions For Toddler Girls 1 of 16
Summer is a fun excuse to update your little lady's wardrobe. Check out some of my favorite summer fashion picks!
Printed Dress 2 of 16
I adore this dress (and pretty much every single other thing at Zara...), because of it's slight vintage vibe. The color scheme would make it perfect for a 4th of July celebration without being too cheesy, and it would still be perfectly appropriate for the rest of the summer. I also like that it's not too fussy - great for all the summer adventures we're sure to go on!
Purchase this dress from Zara for $35.90
Eyelet Yoke Tank 3 of 16
Fern has this tank in white and it's SUPER cute. I love this fun green too, but she already has a ton of things this color, so I decided to go with white since it's the quintessential summer color and nice and cool. I bought this tank in a larger size than what she typically wears and I like how loose it is - totally adorable.
Purchase tank at Target for $7
Painterly Print Denim Shorts 4 of 16
I couldn't resist these fun shorts when I was at Gap recently. They're a bit girlier than what I might typically pick out for Fern, but I love them and I think they'll bring a fun new element to her wardrobe.
Purchase shorts from Gap for $30
Tea Collection Henley Tank 5 of 16
Love this mix of feminine colors with the playful tribal-inspired pattern. This tank is definitely on Fern's wish list.
Purchase this tank from Nordstrom for $22
childHOODS Handmade Geo Tee 6 of 16
This is a more recent addition to my little's closet and I love it. Cool and simple.
Purchase this tee from childHOODS on Etsy for $25
Denim Bermuda Shorts 7 of 16
Fern has the shorter version of these, because her chubby little knees couldn't quite pull off this look, but I really love these and think the longer length is actually a little bit more practical for protecting wobbly toddlers while they're running around all summer.
Purchase these shorts from Gap for $24.95
childHOODS Tribal Color-Blocked Dress 8 of 16
This dress! So, so cute! We love this Etsy shop and this is on my favorites list right now!
Purchase this dress from childHOODS on Etsy for $34.99
Circle Eyelet Tank 9 of 16
They don't sell this tank in the blue color that Fern has, but I really like it in this fun neon yellow. Totally summery and the collar kills me!
Purchase this tank from Gap for $14.99
Chambray Short One-Piece 10 of 16
I'm a sucker for a romper and I love this one on Fern! Some rompers can tend to ride up, but this one seems to do quite well.
Purchase this romper from Gap for $29.99
Solid Tank 11 of 16
So, this is totally from the boy's department, but I love simple tanks like this for Fern and I always buy them a size of two up so she can wear them as tunics - cute for summer and extends the life of the clothes since she can wear them for longer.
Purchase this tank from Gap for $12.95
Mini Boden Spotty Chambray Skirt 12 of 16
This skirt looks perfectly play worthy, but still super cute. Perfect for wearing to a casual summer wedding or a trip to the park.
Purchase this skirt from Nordstrom for $34
Eyelet Lace Tank 13 of 16
If you can't tell by now, I really have a thing for eyelet - nothing says summer quite like it and we definitely have this top.
Purchase this tank from Old Navy for $12
Peek ‘Picnic’ Tank 14 of 16
This has a fun late 70's/early 80's vibe that I love. The color-blocked stripes are a fun touch to this otherwise simple tank.
Purchase this tank from Nordstrom for $32
Square Tank 15 of 16
This tank would be perfectly flattering and fitted for tiny toddler pot bellies like Fern's. Love the stripes.
Purchase this tank from Gap for $12.95
Mini Boden Embroidered Dress 16 of 16
Sweet and summery - Fern (and any toddler girl!) could practically live in this little dress.
Purchase this dress from Nordstrom for $48
