Temps are heating up and so are summer fashions at Tanger. I don’t know about you, but I adore summer frills, ruffles and the fun prints for me and my minis.
But, and this is a major but, they HAVE to be functional and practical for all the events, activities, play dates and getaways that we have planned.
Luckily for you, I grabbed a few summer essentials while on a “Mommy and Me” shopping trip over Memorial Day weekend and they’ve provided the perfect inspiration for this week’s post!
Here are a few of my go-to tips for pulling together a flawless summer look for you and your littles.
Summer is H.O.T. and no one wants to be confined by clothes that are too constricting. Loose, flowy tops, pants and skirts are totally on trend right now and are perfect for a mom’s on-the-go lifestyle.
And also completely adorable on my mini, but I may be a little biased!

Patterns & Prints
Nothing says summer like nautical stripes and fun prints. I’m swooning over these new striped pants because they’re oh-so bold but comfortable for errands or a casual family outing.
Add some exciting patterns and prints to your family’s weekly rotation of summer looks and you’ll be surprised at how many compliments you get without even trying (too hard).
I mean, if you make it out of the grocery store without at least one person commenting on the level of cuteness your littles are exuding in these outfits, I’ll retire as your #TangerMom.

Almost Famous Footwear
Summer shoes rank right up there in priority with my fave fall boots. It’s worth it to get a few great pairs that you love and that are practical for anything on your to do list.
Personally, I’m a wedge girl and I may or may not have worn these strappy, lace-up wedges from Vince Camuto every day since I brought them home.

When it comes to the littles, summer footwear needs to be cute but also easy. These rainbow striped espadrilles from Carter’s are perfect for my budding, little miss independent, fashionista who insists on dressing herself.

Accessories to Bring it Home
Even the most basic summer outfit can be brought to life with the right accessories!
Sunnies, a simple chain necklace or even some wow-factor earrings are great options to dress up any outfit without adding extra “weight” from bulky accessories.
