Going shopping for girls clothes every season can be a burden. Not because the shopping itself is difficult, but because of the tendency to overbuy. There are so many choices out there for girls clothes that it is far too easy to buy much more than your infant or toddler girl truly needs. A smart way to approach shopping for toddler girls clothes or infant girls clothes is to make a plan and as best as you can stick to it.

A well constructed plan could mean the difference to coming home feeling good about the clothes you bought and feeling terrible because you bought way more than your daughter needs. Again. A plan can help guide you directly to what you need and how many of them you have permission to buy without triggering buyer's remorse in the car or at home. So set yourself down the right path and make a plan.

So, you need a plan, but what is the best plan? Before you make a plan, you need to understand that the chances of the clothes you buy this season fitting next year are small. The bathing suit you buy this year will more than likely not fit next year. There is some overlap between the seasons, but not year to year. Also, buying big so that clothes fit for two years really just means clothes are too big one year and a little tight the next. Buy what fits now. Your daughter will thank you.

The next step in making a plan is understanding your daughter and what she likes to do, as well as what the family likes to do. Buying a big heavy ski jacket is a little silly if it doesn't get really cold and the family never goes up in the mountains to play in the snow. Of course you want your daughter to stay as warm as she can, but be reasonable in what you plan for.

After that, you need to dispassionately evaluate the kinds of clothes your daughter will need to wear every week. 5-10 tops which will depend on the weather, maybe 6 bottoms, including pants, shorts and skirts, a few pieces of outerwear that will match the season and you should be set. A collection like this should allow her to go to daycare, play with her friends, go to her cousin's house, and even dress up nice on the times she needs to. Of course, how often your family does laundry will have an effect on the amount of clothing you need to buy, but something similar to the above list should allow your daughter to look good and stay covered without wearing the same thing day after day.

Of course, you don't need to buy complete sets of brand new clothes every season and toss away the things you bought last season. Winter jeans work great in the spring without long underwear underneath them. Lighter fall sweaters work just fine in winter with long underwear and a t-shirt underneath and a nice warm jacket on top.

Shopping for girls clothes is one of those essential baby things that doesn't need to be a chore. Just make a good plan, put some thought into it, and stick to it. You'll be glad you did.
