I don’t know about you, but my daughter’s summer uniform consists of a comfy tee shirt and some shorts or stretchy leggings. She plays hard, and I want her to wear something cute, comfortable and easy to wash because those long days in the yard always add up to lots of grass and dirt stains. I’ve rounded up a list of 10 t-shirts that I love, each from a different brand that you may not have heard of before. If you don’t love the shirt I chose, still visit the brand’s site because they have lots more to choose from for boys and girls!
