12 Fall Fashion Finds for Your Little Lady

Are the first hints of fall in the air where you live? In my neck of the woods, the nights are starting to cool and suddenly my grocery lists include fewer bottles of lemonade and more ingredients for soup. Maybe we’re pushing it a little, but it does seem that we’re moving more and more toward autumn.

My children— especially my toddler— have all done a good bit of growing over the spring and summer months. It’s time for some new basic wardrobe pieces that will (hopefully) carry them through winter.

With that in mind, I’ve made a list of 12 fall essentials for your sweet gal. I’m focusing on color, color, color. And did I mention color? Check out my finds!
