I used to only shop at Gap, Nordstrom and Old Navy Kids for my daughters' dresses religiously because they always had the best dresses that I could find. I still shop their girls department frequently, but in the past few years I discovered some online shops that I shop from all the time! The Little Spoons, Plain Jane, Alice & Ames, June & January and Hadley Girl are all my favorites for classic little girl swing dresses! I shared some pictures of my girls in these dresses at the bottom.
And just an fyi, I am always on the lookout for Alice & Ames dresses off of A&A dedicated BST (Buy - Sell - Trade) Facebook groups! Look it up! You can find such great deals that way. As long as they have been washed and cared for correctly, those dresses still look great with their second owner because the quality is that good. I have found a lot of the owners on there are dedicated A&A buyers and they don’t put the clothes in the dryer to keep them from pilling. I’ve bought so many off that site- probably too many.

I remember loving to twirl my dress as a kid and watch my skirt float around me. These swing dresses look adorable with rain boots, clogs, or pulled up socks! As the weather cools we pair ours with tights and a cardigan. Some of these you will want to put a long sleeve shirt under this fall. All of these swing dresses will take you into winter and spring again if they still fit!
