*Alexa, play Schools Out for the Summer” by Alice Cooper*
Are you mamas feeling ready for the summer? I’m actually a little nervous about it. Thankfully we have friends and family nearby, and some Fun + Games activities to keep my four girls entertained. Baby number five will join us at the end of the month who’ll bring us extra sunshine.
Speaking of sunshine…you’ve got to get these bright, happy, and hip outfits for your daughters. The inspiration comes from my recent Retro Collection made of vintage Czech glass beads. I think these curated outfits are perfect for days when “you’re lookin’ for fun and feelin’ groovy.” ✿
BABY + TODDLER
Your little flower child will have it made in the shade from head-to-toe. Bucket hats are great for trips to the zoo, a beach day, cooling off at a splash pad, and everything in between. This one is made from cotton + linen, and available in 11 different colors. I liked the elastic adjustment around the head, & the adjustable chin strap; both of which help keep this hat on your little one's head allowing it to grow with your child. For some added sun protection + style, the round sunglasses have UV400 lenses, can fit ages up to 5 years, and has 14 colors to pick from, and are unisex. These are just so cute on every little kiddo!
If your daughter has her ears pierced, consider putting the Peace Studs on for the summer. They are a simple bar design available in gold filled or sterling silver which are perfect for sensitive little ears. They really add an everyday elegance to any outfit, and this flower set is no exception. Let’s talk about this set- it’s made of cotton; has the option of getting shorts, or pants; sized from 0 months to 5 years, and those happy flowers are sure to put a smile on your face. According to the reviews, it tends to run big, so size down. To compliment the colors of those happy flowers, a stack of Mod Peach, Sunny, and Jukebox is positively perfect, and will hold up against sunscreen, sticky popsicles, swimming lessons, and bath time. The final touch is a pair of red sandals. This pair is easily cleaned, and the velcro closure makes it easier for independent kiddos to put these on by themselves. Now she’s all set to frolic among the wildflowers.

I love this graphic tee so much, I curated the outfit to let it “shine”. I’m keeping the accessories neutral & easily worn with the rest of her summer outfits.
“Here Comes the Sun” is surrounded by fun + funky flowers, smiley faces, and sun rays. If you’re worried about the white tee, you can pick from 9 other colors. (These are also available in sizes for men + women! Get the whole family to match ☺) These shorts look like denim, but are actually made of cotton making them soft, breathable, and awesome to wear over a bathing suit.
Some whimsical accessories such the Amour heart studs, and the Peach Moonstone pendant necklace compliment the groovy vibe of the shirt. Fun fact: Peach Moonstone soothes anxiety and stress + reminds you that you are in the right place at the right time. That can be a powerful reminder for our daughters as they navigate growing up and discovering who they are.
A claw clip is a great alternative to a scrunchy to keep dry or wet hair up and out of her face. These ones are matte black and sold in a pack of two. Add the Vinyl bracelet with its precious black heart beads with the very trendy Loyalty bracelet & bright white Polaroid. This stack is durable enough for everyday wear + always on fleek. (Do the cool kids still say that?)
A pair of slip-on sneakers, such as these checkered VANS are a good choice for a day spent at an amusement park, bike rides, or shopping in the city. Don’t forget the Clarity anklet that is a hot summer accessory she can rock during her summer of adventure and enlightenment.

MOM + BABY MATCHING
Let us start off by keeping you protected from the sunshine with a darling sunhat. Both are wide brimmed paper straw hats with a black tied ribbon detail. Your pretty peepers also need some sun protection with a pair of retro cat eye sunnies in a sassy red shade. If red isn’t your color, they also come in black and white which will still compliment your darling matching swimming suits. The suits are found on the same listing, but sold separately. They are made from Polyester & Spandex and come in a variety of prints (including shorts for little boys, and men)
For the fun accessories that accent your swimwear, I picked Rainbow, Be Mine, and Petal bracelets. Each one is so sweet and special on their own, but when worn together, they make a powerful stack that you and your mini(s) can wear year round if you wanted to.
If your daughter has her ears pierced, you two can match with Encircle studs. They are a simple open circle stud, but look absolutely adorable on everyone. Finally you can slip into a black pair of slides. The slides are from different suppliers but both offer a variety of colors and prints and both are made from ethylene vinyl and have comfortable soles.
I hope you & your family have a summer filled with sunshine + water and good times.☀
SHOP THE BABY LOOK:
It’s important to have a good pair of shoes for a holiday such as the Fourth of July. You're out attending and participating in many activities and I want you + your girls to be comfortable. The sneakers for toddler age girls offer arch support. There are a multitude of colors available and many good reviews. (Take note that other customers have stated that these shoes run big.) The ruffled open-toed-sandals on the other hand run small, according to reviews. But many are impressed with the quality and durability. These also come in many other colors and make great shoes for many more occasions in the future. If you’ve been looking for comfortable platform sandals for the summer, consider these cute ones. They have elastic straps, velcro closure with a chunky cork and rubber heel that measures approximately 2.5 inches high. (If you order soon, you can click the coupon and save 5%)
Now onto the star of the show- the outfits! A USA graphic t-shirt onesie for the baby. It’s made of cotton, and is machine washable (so you can wash out the ketchup, and shave ice stains 😉)
I’m a sucker for a cute romper. This striped romper for your older girls is made of a cotton blend, features a button closure, and straps with a darling bow detail on the shoulders. There are 10 different colors/styles to add to her romper collection. For you hard working mamas- a ruffled tee in red paired with short denim overalls so you can stay cool + comfortable + have many pockets to hold the parade candy wrappers 🤪 These Old Navy short overalls are the Slouchy Straight fit with adjustable shoulder straps, square neck and V-shaped back, a banded waist, and a roll-cuff on the legs.
Now that we’ve covered the details of each outfit, let’s add some shimmer and sparkle! GEMS accessories are fabulous for everyday wear because they are made from gold filled or sterling silver components, high quality beads that I test before they are sold to customers, and our bracelets are strung on durable stainless steel beading wire. Show your red, white, and blue pride by stacking Polaroid or Glacier with Jukebox, Twilight, and Bubbly. Make the bracelets extra special by adding a personal touch with a gold ion plated Letter Charm to yours + you daughter’s bracelets. The combination of these is so hot, it’ll melt your popsicles! For some extra sparkle and sizzle, add a necklace and earrings. The Kindness Arc + July Birthstone necklaces punch up the jam, and can also be worn on other special occasions, or with your everyday outfits. You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of gold hoops. The Beaded Hoops have fun movement with the gold filled beads attached, and accent the Kindness Arc necklace. Forever Hoops should be a staple in your jewelry box, so if you don’t have a pair, or two, here’s your sign to get them! They are so comfortable, light weight, and a great accessory for younger girls with pierced ears, because they don’t hurt to keep them in 24/7. She can sleep in, swim in and adventure in her hoops year round.
Add a finishing touch to your tresses with a darling Cadet blue bow from Lou Lou, or a Star claw clip that comes in a pack of six!
I hope you + your family enjoy spending the day with your loved ones as you celebrate and give thanks for our freedom in this beautiful country we live in. God Bless America! 🇺🇸

A sweet + feminine purple romper made of cotton will keep her cool while she snacks on a shaved ice at the pool. The button and belt detail is darling and the two big pockets in front are functional.This pack of clip accessories is a mix of colorful flowers, hearts, glitter stars, rounded waves + a simple bar allowing your daughter to style them to her heart's desire. I LOVE these. Little Laura would have been giddy over hair clips like these! The GEMS accessories I picked will compliment the whimsical and care-free vibe. Royal, Rosie, and Whimsy feel like a stack any girly-girl would be thrilled to wear. With a stack like this, she can wear it through the summer and straight into the new school year. Now let’s address how cute the combination of a bubble gum pink pair of sneakers with the Grace Anklet is. My oldest girls have been asking when I’m going to make them an anklet; after seeing that darling duo, I might not procrastinate any longer! The linked sneakers come in 22 different colors/styles. (You gotta check out the tie dye, unicorn, and lemon print 😍) As a bonus accessory, the new Kindness stud earrings are a tiny cluster of beads that make a great addition to this outfit + your daughter’s jewelry box.

Many things have changed since I was a teen, but one thing has remained the same- teens enjoy a casual + comfortable + effortlessly cute outfit. I believe this ensemble fits the bill!
A ball cap + a good set of hoop earrings is an everyday summer staple. The daisy baseball hat has an easy to adjust strap in the back, and has 20 other colors to pick from. These featured gold filled hoops from my shop have 2 different sizes + finishes. She can rock a pair of hoops that have subtle sparkle, or a classic smooth finish.
Oversized graphic tees paired with a good pair of cuffed denim shorts has been a summer staple for years! She could show off a favorite band, a positive saying, or rep a city she’s visited. The embroidered daisy denim is available in 3 different denim washes. A dainty necklace, such as my Mini Freshwater Pearl choker will stand out in a subtle, yet classy, way. I love pearls because they are an everyday elegance, and never go out of fashion. She will definitely wear this necklace for years to come!
Now, it’s time to add a triple stack of bracelets that she’ll be thrilled with- Iris, Be Happy, and Mod White are a crazy-cute combination; I would not blame you if you borrowed it! If she refuses to take it off, you might just have to get a set of your own to match her! And just like above, a good pair of sneakers paired with an anklet go together like summer and popsicles. I chose the super shiny Unity Anklet to accent a clean white pair of VANS. To celebrate the summer vacation, she can wear the Confetti ring; which doubles as a reminder to celebrate moments both big and small in her life.
