Summer will be here in just a few short weeks. And that means lots of activities for your girls. Whether it is sports, gymnastics, swimming lessons or music lessons, your girls are sure to be busy and active. If you are lucky, you will be able to give them a break (or maybe I really mean give yourself a break) from their hectic schedules and pencil in a family vacation.
Regardless of what you have planned, there are several summer must-haves your girls will need this summer. Here is what to pack or purchase before the summer fun begins!
A cute, comfy tank top
No matter what her style, your girl is sure to find a stylish and comfortable tank top that she likes. And I can guarantee she will have a place to wear it. She can pair it with some denim shorts, throw it over a swimsuit or wear it with a cute summer skirt. The Flowers by Zoe brand has some cute tank tops with graphic prints. A girlie pair of summer sandals would work to complete any of those looks.
A jumpsuit or romper
Not only are jumpsuits and rompers big this year, they are also comfortable and so easy to wear! Every girl should have one to wear this summer. She can use it as a swimsuit cover-up, or throw it on for a casual play date. House of Fraser and Saks on Fifth have some great jumpsuit options. Those sandals she wore with her cute tank top? She can also wear them with her jumpsuit or romper!
A stylish sun hat
Another big trend this year is sun hats. They are not just cute to wear, they also serve a purpose. And we all know that it is important to protect our children from the sun’s powerful rays. So why not let your girl do that in style? A sun hat can be worn to the beach, the pool, or to a summer barbeque. Anywhere she will be out in the sun and wants to be stylish, your girl can sport a sun hat.
A swimming suit
I know that not everyone lives in a place where the summer allows for swimming or water activities. However, for those of you who do, a swimsuit is essential for your little girl this summer! Even if she isn’t on a swim team, or is still learning to swim, she can use a swimsuit for playing in the yard with her friends and a hose. Or running through the sprinklers. A swimsuit is not just for swimming. It is, however, perfect for summer! Make sure to give PilyQ by Bloomingdales a browse.
A practical pair of sandals
As mentioned above, your girl is bound to need some summer sandals for her wardrobe. Find a pair that is practical and can be worn with just about anything! You might want to get one pair that is water friendly and another that is better for wearing with clothes on dry land. I mean, what girl complains about having too many pairs of shoes?
