Swimsuits That Suits You And The Kids

This post is underwritten by Old Navy. Whether you're looking for a tankini, bikini or a one piece, Old Navy has you confidently covered at a great price.

One of my favorite things about Summer is taking trips to the beach and pool. There's just something about lounging around a pool deck or listening to the sound of the ocean that's so peaceful, so serene, so... FUN!

While it looks like Aiden and I will not be taking a vacation this Summer, I fully intend on taking advantage of day and weekend trips so that we can have some fun in the sun. Of course, this single momma has to plan out my outfits for swimming and swim-related activities, just as I would do for a saturday night. I do so in four easy steps:

First: I need an oversized, lightweight beach bag so that I can bring along our snacks, sunblock, changing clothes, toys, towels, and lots of water.

Second: I need to find stylish one-pieces that flatters and highlights my petite frame while providing enough support. You know, in case Aiden decides to go on an "expedition" (aka: run away from me). Sunnies and a cover-up are must-have items as well.

I'm also a HUGE fan of tankinis because it allows me to mix and match and switch it up a bit. Like this set:

Talk about cute!

Third: I take care of Aiden's gear. For my little guy, I like to stick with rash guards, swim shorts, water shoes, and a hat big enough to protect his face from the sun. I always try to find modern looks for him so I shop at places that offer a range of colors and prints. And, as I've said in the past, I try buy Aiden's pieces when they're on sale. (Kids grow out of clothing in, like, a week. So what's the point of spending full price on it?!)

Fourth: We hit the beach or the pool and get our splash on! Woohoo!

How do you get beach/pool ready? What's your swimsuit style?

Thank you again to Old Navy for sponsoring my post. I was compensated for this post as a member of Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all my own.


  1. My problem area is my upper thigh, so top bit I am still ok to flaunt but bottom.. no,no,no! So a little swim skirt would work for me. The purple pair is pretty.. I would wear that!

  2. That pink and black tankini is too cute! I'd definitely rock that....

  3. I got that last swimsuit pictured in black at Old Navy. Love the mix and match concept!


I love reading what you have to say!
