After writing all about the new splashpad/pool/beach gear that’s been on my radar for my post earlier this week, our nanny came home from a day in Central Park with mini and urged me to buy a rashguard for her, stating that it would be better for her fair skin. I thought immediately that I’d order her one from Minnow Swim — they have the sweetest prints, and I’d just been ogling at their suits earlier this week! But the floral one I wanted (shown on the sweet pea above — and by itself below) was sold out in mini’s size, and I also didn’t like that they do not sell bottoms separately/individually — meaning that I’d need to also buy her a bikini, or to mix and match with another brand, which rarely works out (the blues don’t match or what have you).
I found a slew of alternates, shown below — you can click on the image to be taken directly to details, or see links below!
Pick No. 1 // Rufflebutts.
Pick No. 2 // Egg by Susan Lazar. (PSA: I also found a couple of sets of these with tags on for much cheaper on eBay!) I also love this print!
Pick No. 3 // Crewcuts.
Pick No. 4 // Sookibaby.
Pick No. 5 // Tucker + Tate.
Pick No. 6 // Shade Critters.
I ended up buying #1 and #4 for mini! I also bought a few of these swim diapers. Will be keeping my eyes peeled for Minnow Swim sales…
I also looked at these from Mini Boden — a few friends of mine love their rashguard sets — and they’re cute, but I’m not as into the contrasting print top and bottoms.
I liked this seersucker set.
I liked the nonfussy nautical stripe of this Mott50 style (UPF 50 built-in!).
Darling, but $78?! I can hardly stomach the Minnow Swim prices…
P.P.S. I just bought mini this set of duplos and she is OBSESSED. She will sit and play with them for a good thirty minutes on her own. I also bought her this for our upcoming travels (it now comes in the cutest swan shape!!!) — the perfect alternate when a bath tub isn’t handy!
P.P.P.S. A darling Gap steal for a little lady!
