I’ve been perusing the internet the past couple of weeks trying to get an idea of the girls’ Spring/Summer wardrobes. I think I’ve finally narrowed it down to my favorite trends and styles.
First up is my oldest daughter. I try to keep her clothes simple but stylish. She’s special needs and still have trouble with ties, buttons and zippers. While, I have no problem assisting her when she needs it, I try to encourage dependence.
Because of her autism and sensory issues, she’s not comfortable in certain clothes for an extended period of time, plus she is VERY active. She doesn’t have much of an opinion on her clothes, but I try to dress her to suit her. I would call her overall style athletic.
For the summer I have been eyeballing bike shorts, (knit shorts that are a bit longer than regular shorts and more form fitting) tanks and tees. Paired with tennis shoes, this is the perfect SS style for her. This allows her to really move around, but still remain comfortable.
My middle daughter is DEFINITELY the opinionated one when it come her style and clothes. She’s definitely my girly girl who loves her skirts and dresses, but they’re a little impractical for a rambunctious 4 year old. I easily fix that with some knit shorts and some tennis shoes. Boom she’s ready to mingle with the rest of the kids. I love pairing graphic tees/tanks with frilly skirts. I’m super into prints as well. Especially for little girls.
My youngest is still too young to voice any opinions about her clothes, so I just dress her how I want. I keep it simple and stylish for her as well. I really LOVE rompers for girls 2 and under. Easy on and off, which is perfect for that age. They’re usually made of light airy fabric as well, which is nice in the warmer months. I’ve also developed an obsession with moccs for toddlers as well. Easy to put on, but they stay put which is nice for toddlers who are on the go who also have a habit of taking socks and shoes off.
So there you have it. Also, I purposely picked items from stores that have affordable clothes. Old Navy, Target, H&M. While I love supporting small businesses, I can’t always afford their clothes. And I understand that they’re prices have to be higher. I’m not asking for them to lower prices, but I definitely could not get my kids as much if I mostly shopped small. I do splurge on shoes, because I feel like shoes get the most wear and tear so I will spend more on more durable shoes. Which is why I love converse so much for kids. They wash easily and hold up.
These picks also might not be what’s in exactly trendy, but they’re the trends that suit my kids.
