TGIF, everyone! We love Fridays for two reasons. Reason number one- tomorrow is Saturday, hello weekend! Reason number two- we get to round up our latest favorites and share why they are on our essentials list for the season. With it being summer time we have been spending most of our day outdoors and doing fun activities with Delilah before Sawyer’s big debut. She loves pool days, art projects, riding her bike and scooter, baking, watching movies in her jammies, and she especially loves trips to Target for an ICEE and Starbucks croissant- there is no question, she is my daughter, I claim her! We have named 10 favorites that are summer must-haves for toddlers and that also work to make our daily grind a bit easier and more exciting. Read below for where to buy and why we adore them! What are your summer essentials for toddler that you just can’t live without- we would love to hear! Have a super fun summery weekend!
1. Stride Rite//The Phibian Sneaker Sandal//$36
This shoe is the perfect mix of a sandal and sneaker. It gives great support for playground fun, beach days, pool days, and riding bikes while looking super cute dressed up with shorts, and a graphic tee for a day out and about. I love that this shoe is breathable for hot days and comfortable on Delilah’s feet after playing outside all day. They give great support and are super easy for her to put on and take off herself.
2. Little Adi + C0.//“Lazy Sun Daze” Fringe Dress//$25
This Fringe Dress screams summer time! It is the perfect bathing suit cover up for your little one to rock poolside or to the beach. Delilah loves to wear her fringe dress to Target with a high bun and sunnies and her favorite pair of jellies. We love the flamingo pink color, soft fabric and hip fringe detail that twirls perfectly to Delilah’s Disney playlist.
How adorable are these play animals from Hazel Village?! We can’t get enough of their unique faces and individual stories. They are made of all natural, organic cotton and fleece with beautiful embroidered detail making them ultra special for your tot to play dress up with or to give as a gift. Delilah loves that their detailed clothing sets are interchangeable. They are soft, plush, and easy to hand wash and hang dry. Lucy Owl accompanies us to Target and the grocery store often- monogramming available too!
