This is a good thing, because even though we're far from the ocean and any surf-worthy beach, summertime in my town is absolutely magical. We have tons of riverfront festivals with delicious treats, live music, and even a fountain that all of the town's kids love to play in. My town also has an amazing outdoor waterpark with slides, a huge swimming pool, a lazy river, and even a gigantic sand pit for little ones to enjoy. So while we won't be hanging ten and catching a monster wave, we will still have a blast in the warm summer sun.
Of course with summer approaching, it's time to break out all those swimsuits! In my home, the guys are easy. Give them a pair of swimming trunks, and they're all set. My daughter, Sophie, on the other hand, takes after her Mommy and has very specific tastes when it comes to her swimwear. Thankfully, I discovered Squirtini Bikini before there was an opportunity for any shopping woes.
Haven't heard of Squirtini Bikini? (Don't worry, you will. They're taking the junior swimwear industry by storm!) Allow me to introduce you to this fabulous brand!
About Squirtini Bikini :
Squirtini has a silhouette for every body type. Moms can relax when their 6th, 7th & 8th grader wants to start shopping in the adult department (mostly due to sizing issues). Both moms’ and daughters' needs will be met when they find unique, modest, hip, quality, American-made suits that let a TWEEN express her maturing, independent sense of style.
Squirtini Bikini allows girls to be confident and comfortable in their own skin during the “awkward” stage of going from girl to adolescent.
Each collection contains a bevy of vibrant prints along with solid mix-and-match separates in a kaleidoscope of colors. Girls can reincarnate drawers containing suits from seasons past with our solid reversible tops and bottoms, showcasing the true fashionista within.

Our Review of the Lily Suit :
Ultimately, I chose the Lilly silhouette in Jelly Fish with Batik binding. I just love the colorful print paired with tie-dyed accents. It appeals to the "modern day hippie" side of me, and Sophie loves it, too! (Guess the organic, organically-sourced, non-GMO apple doesn't fall too far from the tree!)
Sophie couldn't wait to put on her chic new swimsuit, and wanted to head outside to play on the playground wearing it. Lucky for her, we had a nice little warm snap that allowed her to do just that. It was pretty funny...No leaves to be found on any of the trees, and yet a little girl is running around in a swimsuit!
Isn't this just adorable?! Sophie said that her Squirtini Bikini suit is her absolute favorite. That says a lot, since my little fashionista has around a dozen swimsuits to choose from! She loved the fun colors and the Jelly Fish Print, and she says it's very comfortable to wear. Even while climbing, sliding, and swinging, her suit stayed perfectly in place. As a mom, I appreciate this because I won't have to worry about any "wardrobe malfunctions" at the water park this summer.
