Mary Lou Szekely sure has a flair for color!

The 5½-year-old daughter of comedian Louis C.K. headed out to school early last month in an eye-popping ensemble.

From her light blue polka dot pea coat and her multi-colored striped leggings to her bubblegum pink North Face Abby Boots ($80), her outfit would brighten up anyone’s day.

Love Mary Lou’s eclectic style? You’re in luck. We’ve rounded up similar items — all under $20!

It’s not as bright as Mary Lou’s, but Old Navy‘s Polka Dot Jersey Peacoat ($19.50) is just as cute. We just love the bright yellow lining — it adds a nice pop of color.

Lunch date with mom and dad? Your daughter will love getting dolled up in Cherokee‘s polished Heather Grey Short Sleeve Belted Shawl Dress ($15).

Added bonus: It’s easy to throw on.

Under a dress or paired with a tee, Carter’s Striped Polka Dot Leggings ($14 for set of two) are the perfect bottoms for your on-the-go princess.

Not only are they stylish, but they offer just the right amount of stretch to let her run free.

Keep her tiny toes warm in C9 by Champion‘s Noella Boots ($16). They feature a touch of faux fur and a front zipper, which makes sliding them on a breeze.

I don’t know how I feel about her photo being posted. Her dad tried hard to keep her and her sister out of the spot light. I’ve been watching Louis CK for a while and never knew the names of his daughters.

That being said, she’s really adorable. And I love her red hair.

I did not know that, Devon. I hope he wouldn’t be upset… I am a huge Louis CK fan, and she is an adorable child.

@devon, I’m glad to see the picture, stop trying to glom onto other people business to make yourself feel important. She’s not going to be harrassed due to this, that’s ridiculous. He talks about her all the time, I deserve to see what she looks like, and I’m glad i did.

Janey- I don’t know where you get the idea you “deserve” to see his daughter.
