Kid’s Swimwear Favorites

May 17, 2016

It is no secret around here that Frances Moon loves a bathing suit.  She wants to wear one everyday. 

Case and point she insisted on sleeping in one last night over her pjs.  I find it pretty adorable though, I know I will miss this stage one day.

Ice Cream Suit

 In honor of Frances Moon and her love for bathing suits I thought I would dedicate an entire post to kid’s swimwear.  There are so many cute ones for Summer,  I wanted to round up a few that we are loving for the boys and girls plus a few other Summer favorites.

Popsicle Suit | Relax Tee | Fish Swim Trunks | Natives | Sunglasses

It doesn’t get much cuter. 

Sterling’s swim trunks and Frances Moon’s bathing suit also come in 2 different patterns than what they are wearing.

 For the girl’s popsicle suit, definitely order up a size, it runs small.  Frances is wearing the 3t but she honestly might could have worn the 4t.

I love the open back with the tie and bright neon colors!

It is hard to tell in the pic but they are wearing the new Native Shoes called The Venice.  These are a bit different from the regular natives.  They are made out of a thiner light weight material almost like neoprene.  The kids love them.  They are so easy to get on and clean as well.  Sterling has them in the blue color and green, and of course Frances wanted pink.

We also really like this zip-up cover for Frances Moon.   It is the perfect shade of hot pink.  It is nice that it zips up and she can put it on herself.  Plus it is made of terry cloth so it acts as a towel too drying her off. 

Zip Cover-Up

If you need a cooler for the pool/beach I can’t say enough great things about this one.  It is the perfect size, to hold snacks and drinks (or Matt’s beers:) 

Oh and the Supergoop Sunscreen pictured below is the best!!  It is formulated with 35% less alcohol than other brands, is water resistant, and contains vitamin C.  It is super easy to apply on the kids and lasts a long time.

Ready for a swim!  I mentioned my swim suit yesterday but for all you Mom’s looking for a great one piece I really like this one.  I do suggest ordering up a size as it runs on the small side.  As far as strapless suits go, it actually stays put pretty well but it comes with a strap so you can wear it as a halter as well.

Sterling has the goggles and sunglasses and they both are great.  The sunglasses fit perfectly on his head and the goggles work really well.

  1. I've got a little girl who loves swimsuits too! However, I cannot get her to sleep with a pillow…can you share where you got Francis's pillow? Thanks!

  2. Can the natives be used in the water. My daughter hates water shoes but needs some for our beach trip.
