The coolest girls' clothes and accessories: Editors Best of 2012
Okay, so we moms of girls try to play it down, but we admit it can be pretty darn fun shopping for them. On the other hand, it can get a little harder as they get older and the designers want our kids to grow up faster than we'd like. So kudos to these brands which really made us happy this year.
Inspiring women tees for girls by Okllo
In the sea of blinged out, sequined covered girls' clothes out there, I was thrilled to find these awesome inspiring shirts for girls
featuring historical female heroes. We need more shirts like this. Hear that, designers? Zara kids online
It was a big thrill when Zara started selling their great children's collection online this year,
and wow, their girls' clothes did not disappoint. I'm in love with
their trendy, very affordable styles that hold up surprisingly well.
They run a wee bit big but once you get your sizes figured out it will
be your new go-to shop, too.
Is there a girl who didn't see the new Toms Glitter Shoes
and beg for them? Probably not. Enough said.
The adorable kids' pajamas from Skylar Luna
are just wonderful, especially if you're a fan of putting your child to
bed in soft organic cotton. These are definitely meant to hold up
through multiple kids, so while it's a little investment, I'm finding it

and get ready for school.Tea Collection Nordic girls' collection

sale. The best part is that you'll get a ton of wear out of pieces like
the three-season cotton kimono-style dress (above) which become smart tunics over jeans and leggings as your kids

wardrobe--all the crazy colors and styling that girls love, and no
wonder--they were inspired by the drawings of a little girl then brought
to life in a small, family-run knitting factory. One Sunday
I think I speak for a lot of parents when I say thank you, One Sunday
from moms everywhere, for making tween clothes that are fun, stylish,
on-trend, and don't turn our little girls into adults. In other words,
no belly shirts, no micro-minis, no "future diva" spelled out in
rhinestones. Great sales too.
