It’s the 1st day of Summer, the sun is shining and the beach is calling our name. We live in the sunshine state, that is surrounded by water. Every year around this time, we notice people wearing less and less, especially the closer we get to the water.
About four years ago we decided our girls wouldn’t wear those tiny little bathing suits. The colors and styles can be so cute on a little toddler’s body, but if we wouldn’t allow them to wear that when they are 15 years old, then we’re not going to let them dress that way when they are three years old.
Victoria innocently asked me the other day, while I was searching for a bathing suit online, “Why is that girl wearing just her panties and bra?” Funny but true. Society says it’s okay to wear itsy bitsy bathing suits and even encourages it, but you wouldn’t walk out of your bathroom into your living room, while guests are over, in just your panties and bra.
God has made each of our girls beautiful, from their long eye lashes to their soft tiny toes. We are raising them to dress with dignity and to honor their bodies, not to flaunt it for everyone to gawk at.
Here’s an example of our fun sandcastle beachwear….cute, stylish and you don’t have to worry about anything popping or hanging out 😉
