Looking for toddler girl clothes essentials ideas with no unicorns or fairies? I am too.
Here is our edit of random things we have been buying for her, in reverse chronological order (shared from my Instagram Stories).
Girl beach dresses
Cost £5. We have a few of these and found them perfect for Summer as they are non iron as well.
Toddler beach dress
Costs under £5 (we also have the green one)
Girls button front dress
We had this last year in yellow, so blue will do this Spring/Summer.
Girls blue eyelet dress
This website every now and then has some really great things for kids (not always). But every season we buy one or two key items that certainly deliver. This blue dress will be perfect for Summer evenings (and there is also a similar version in green).
Toddler Girl Denim Dress
We bought this denim dress with a collar which looks great with a cardigan. A friend gifted us one last year and its definitely one look that really suits our little one.
Toddler girl swimsuit
Costs £8. Other patterns available but I love this one.
Hooded dressing gown
Costs £17.99 and it is lovely. Available in beige and navy.
We love these (and we lose a lot!)
Paper pag cotton shorts
From £15 (and obviously non iron!)
Toddler Girl White Sandals
Cost £8. I bought next few sizes as they will always come in handy.
Toddler girl camel sandals
Cost $18 from Old Navy (USA only I believe)
Absolutely brilliant – I find it very difficult to find simple sandals and on a recent trip to Florida, little one lived in the white ones from H&M and a kind reader saw these and sent me the link. We have bought several sizes as they are just perfect.
Toms tiny alpercatas
Cost £12 from Amazon
These have been our Summer shoes and they are perfect (and you can match with mummy and daddy too – have a look at my Amazon shop).
Liewood Bre Sandals
Costs £24 from Kidly
They cost more than other similar ones but they last a lot longer (and dare I say look much better). We have them in a variety of colours and I cannot recommend them enough.
Trotters Hampton canvas plimsoles (they also come in white and red), and there is another model which we also like (without laces).
We also got some similar ones from H&M in cream and other colours.
Simple dark jeans
We have been through a lot and the best we have found are from Osh Kosh in the USA. If you are travelling, order ahead and they are only $15. We also like these jeans.
Also have a look at their girls cotton t-shirts and cartwheel shorts.
Towelling robe and dress for swimming
Costs £16 and is brilliant.
We also bought these simple cardigans for everyday in a variety of colours.
And this very nice cardigan (which last and wash very well) is also back from last season.
Blouses and shirts
We have bought this blouse in a variety of colours before – prices vary, but they are around £15.
Gingham blouse (it really is lovely)
Wide neck jumper (available also in pink)
We have made 2 transitions (one from the large Storksak nappy bag to the matching pram organiser (which we filled up to the brim, absolutely loved and recommend) and as we have edited down our daily essentials, decided we wanted to go with something that was less babylike (and would have a long lifespan for our daughter and used in many other ways).
We have bought the Longchamp Le Pliage club small shoulder bag (there is also a slightly larger version) and we literally want to keep things small (we also have an XL one for overnights and proper days out) which we love, so they match and as you all know, they last a lifetime and if they don’t, you can always send them to Longchamp to be repaired).
EDIT: With Potty Training, we upgraded our bag to a Large size as we needed to add a few more things like the folding toilet seat. The Large Size isn’t that much larger and will serve you better.
Note: we also got a Le Pliage organiser which really helps things stay tidy inside.
Costs £9.99 for 40 pairs from Amazon
We have found these to be very good quality and they last forever. And with the selection offered, we can match any outfit!
I will keep adding bits and pieces to this toddler girls clothes edit (and remove things as they sell out).
