Swim Suit Ready

Are you swim suit ready?

It feels like swim suit weather is a long way away in Indiana, but I know it's not.  We're counting down the days until the pool opens.

I picked up some really cute suits for the kids this year.  I love to coordinate their suits and buy them a couple options since we spend so much time in them this summer.  I found some great options at Target and from Rufflebutts this year.

Red, White & Blue = all from RuffleButts.

Have you heard of them before??  We're BIG fans.  Their suits are so soft, cute and look brand new after wearing them all summer long.  They have boy (Rugged Butts) and girl options and monogram options.  Their suits run true to size.  Their rash guards are amazing and really do keep your kids from getting sun burned.  This is the THIRD SUMMER we've purchased from there for Olive.  They also run sales regularly.  The red suits were on sale around Valentine's Day.  Sign up for their emails to get deals sent to your inbox often.

Target Suits.  You just can't beat the selection, the patterns and the prices at Target.  I loved mixing and matching Fletcher's swim trunks with his striped rash guard.  I also loved finding coordinating suits for both kids.  Now if they'll just happily head to the pool in matchy swim suits I'll be thrilled.

We are also excited to have our summer shoes taken care of already - Crocs/Stride Rite for Fletcher's wide feet and Natives/jellies for Olive.

I'd love to find a solid colored suit for myself this year.  I have had great luck finding cute floral one at JCP so I'll probably check there for a black suit.  I'll keep you posted.

Where have you found great suits for yourself and your kids this year??

  1. Someone else told me about Ruffle Butts, too! I need to check them out!

  2. We got a bunch of Target suits this year. My favorite are tankinis for easy pool bathroom breaks :)! I am SO ready to be able to wear them again!!!! I need to go to Walmart and pick up some of those cute jellies again for the girls, they wore them out last year!

  3. Super cute options! I love that you coordinate the suits. Ruffle Butts is such a fun name!

  4. I love their swimsuits! We are big fans of natives over here too!:)

  5. Our boys have suits from Target and Old Navy and they've held up well. My suits are usually from Target but I just got one from Amazon and it was actually nice!

  6. I LOOOOOOVE Lime Ricki suits for me! So flattering and modest and comfy. We also buy Rufflebutts for my daughter, but I find them to fit a size small at least. Maybe it's because she's in baby sizes, but last year, she was a whole size or two ahead all summer and fall (we can swim through September here).

  7. Such cute swim suits and I love the natives, too! We're looking for summer shoes that also protect little toes, and I've heard such great things about them.

  8. Such cute swim gear!! That reminds me, I so need a new swimsuit this year! Thanks for reminding me.

  9. I got my suit on Amazon! It’s a dress style so built in skirt, navy with white polka dots. I love the retro vibe and the longer length.

  10. I found a really cute and comfy suit at Stein Mart. It was like $30, too.


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
