My favorite thing about summer time is how easy it is to get dressed. Throw on a light summer sundress, and voila! Clothing to keep you cool and stylish. Needless to say, this carries down to my daughter as well, since she is not one to fuss with clothing when we could be spending time outdoors. She loves to wear dresses, but they must be comfortable and easy to play in. I found some of the sweetest dresses for girls, and had to share them! Read on to see some adorable and easy-to-wear dresses for girls this summer.

Secret Garden Picnic Dress – $33.00 Zutano

I love this sweet little dress! Beautiful, bright colors perfect for summer time. Zutano prides themselves on making stylish clothing that is also functional. Your little girl will be able to comfortably run and play, and you won’t have to worry that you won’t be able to wash the grass stains out. Win win!

Printed ruffle sundress – $14.99 (On sale!) The Gap

Here’s a great find for the littlest of ladies! When my daughter was a baby, she couldn’t be bothered to wear dresses that were uncomfortable or anything that was overly hot. With the heat around this time of year, it’s a good idea to keep babies cool to prevent skin irritation and this would be a great option. Light, airy 100% cotton and a bright summery pattern. Add a pretty white cardigan for cool evenings. What’s not to love?

Ruffle-Trim Drop-Waist Dress – $16.94 Old Navy

I love this fun print for a playful summer outfit! Prints are a great trend for this summer, and I like to incorporate them in my outfits as well as my little girls’ outfits! This dress has such a bright pattern that any little girl would enjoy to wear. Again, it is 100% cotton so easy to wear, easy to wash, and can be played up by adding some sweet little mini-gladiator sandals and a bright-hued headband.

It’s A Playdress, It’s A Daydress – $28 (On sale!) Hanna Andersson

I’m still a sucker for polka-dot print, and this dress is no exception! This is a simple pull-on-and-go dress that will look perfect the moment your daughter puts it on. I can’t imagine any little girl not wanting to wear this adorable dress! With it’s amazing softness and ability to withstand your washing machine through even the toughest stains from long days of outside play (plus downright cute-ness), this is a summer wardrobe must for girls.

Two Tie Surf Lily Dress – $34.50 (On sale!) Tea Collection

This print instantly makes me think of spending time oceanside, lounging on the beach and soaking up some sun. This dress is so pretty I wish they made it in adult sizes! As the description reads, “it’s an airy, breezy delight.” Sounds perfect for summer time dresses! Pair it with a jean jacket on cooler evenings and white sandals, and your little one will be looking summer cool in no time.

Does your little girl love to wear dresses or does she opt for shorts and a t-shirt? What are your summer wardrobe must-haves for keeping your daughter’s looking cute and cool?
