Pool Party Inspiration + Carter’s GIVEAWAY

The sun is shining and the weather is warming up and all I can think about it throwing a pool party! There is nothing that screams “summer” more than a pile of flip flops, the scent of sunscreen and cute little kiddos running around in their darling swim suits — am I right?

Today, I’m teaming up with Carter’s to bring you some pool party inspiration and a fun swimwear SALE + GIVEAWAY!

Whether poolside, beachside or just backyard bound, it’s time to get swimming with Carter’s big selection of swimwear. Don’t forget all of our matching accessories including sunglasses, hats and shoes – to complete your little one’s sunny look.

Carter's Giveaway

Protect your little ones from sun and sand with a made-for-summer rash guard shirt, swimsuits and swim trunks with UPF 40 sun protection. These are a must have for my girls who love soaking up the sunshine.

Pool party ideas

Plan a fun pool party: Beach ball invitation // ice cream cupcakes // sand pail favors. Plus darling swimwear of course (these are my three favorites, but check out the complete collection here).

    My daughter just learned how to say the word MONKEY! She gets so excited when she sees a monkey in a book, in a movie, and ESPECIALLY on her pajamas/onesies/outfits – this bathing suit would FOR SURE bring a smile to her face and leave her running around exclaiming “monkey! monkey!” to all those within earshot :)

    I think the floral rash guard set in blue & green colors would be cute for my niece, MaKayla! It even has a sea turtle on the front :)
