For the girls edition of Summer Essentials, I asked Samantha from Cherry Pie Twins to pull together her list of must-have items. Here's her list:

After seeing Lauren's fab summer essential for boys, I couldn't wait to put together my summer essential for girls. Summer is especially great for little girls because even the most casual, inexpensive dresses can always look cute on a mini fashionista. I completely agree with Lauren that it's best to stock up on sale items and to never buy full price at the retail stores like baby GAP. Plus, there are always so many trendy things for little girls at inexpensive stores like H+M and Target.

ROMPERS: One piece and unbelievably cute. Rompers are the summer essential for little girls! The ruffle on this romper from baby GAP is a sweet touch. If you want to up the style factor even more, opt for a one shoulder romper.

COTTON TANK DRESS: This is the perfect causal dress that can be used for a quick trip to the play ground or as a swimsuit cover up. H+M has them in a variety of colours and patterns, and they are an amazing deal at just $5.95.

SEQUINS: Not just for evening anymore, sequins are an adorable detail on any little girl's outfit and a must have for summer. 

NEONS: Neon is hot right now.The brighter, the better. Neon works for play time and party time so don't be afraid to dress your little grils in the brightest brights. 

FEDORAS: Just like the boys, every little girl needs a fedora for summer. They are an essential part of sun safety and are yet still completely cute. 

WHITE CARDIGANS: I always like to have white cardigans for my little girls because they pair perfectly with sundresses and provide a bit of coverage when it's cooler or when we are inside an air conditioned building on a hot day, and they can be easily removed and tossed into my bag. I like white because white goes with everything.

SWIM SUIT: No summer wardrobe is complete without a swimsuit. Bright colours and cute embellishments work best for splish splashing! 

SANDALS: I like to spend more on one pair of good quality shoes per season for my little girls. I like Geox because they are very durable and yet still so cute. These metallic, studded sandals would go perfectly with any outfit.
