P.S. If she's got a brother, here are 10 of our favorite finds for him !
Comfy but Cool Sneaks
Dorothy's ruby-red slippers have nothing on these sparkly Superga kicks  ($49)!
An All-Weather Jacket
You simply can't go wrong with a Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket  ($79), whether you're a baby, an adult, or anywhere in between.
Comfy Ballet Flats
Slip them on, slip them off — Bloch 's Cha Cha Patent Leather Ballet Flats  ($29) make the transition from birthday party to playdate with ease.
A One-Piece Romper
There's a good reason that rompers have made the move from childrenswear to Mama's closet. They offer all the ease of one-piece dressing that a dress does, but shorts instead of a skirt make movement a lot easier. We're loving Burberry 's sweet Hermione romper  ($175) as a Spring/Summer designer splurge!
A Basic Denim Jacket
This timeless jean classic  ($18) can be worn with anything — three seasons a year!
The Perfect Tank Swimsuit
Skip the bikini! Little girls need action-approved one-piece swimwear  ($58) that doesn't budge when she's on the go during her seaside adventures.
Colored denim  ($30) makes her everyday outfits so much more interesting than standard blue jeans.
A quick Etsy search will uncover girls' printed leggings with everything from her name to hearts and aztec prints. We're loving these from Studio Bundis  ($20).
A Go-To Special-Occasion Dress
With little kids, you'll want to do your best not to reinvent the wheel each time a special event or party arises. A sweet party dress like this one by Tartine et Chocolat  ($99) can be worn on its own in warm weather or layered with tights and a cardigan in Winter and early Spring.
A Perfect-For-Play Dress
We're nothing short of obsessed with Burt's Bees Baby's Terry Play Dress  ($28). It's the perfect solution to her "what to wear to playgroup" wardrobe dilemmas.
