I don’t know about you, but my days of laying in the sun are long gone. Not only is that impossible with two little boys, but I don’t enjoy it as much as I used to when I was younger. I’d MUCH rather sit in the shade versus cooking in the sun no matter how much SPF I’m wearing.
So my bathing suits have to be kid/play friendly and also something I feel comfortable in. I love a one piece and am so happy to see that there are so many cute options out there now. I also love a high neck since I’m bending over picking up kids, and actively playing with them!
But if you remember, I discovered rash guards last summer as well, and pretty much wore mine nonstop anytime I was in the pool, with or without the kids. It is SO much easier than slathering on sunscreen over and over again, and it didn’t feel hot like I thought it would. I think I’m going to look for a nicer one this year as the one I got on Amazon was a bit cheap and doesn’t coordinate well with my other swimsuits.
Are you going on a trip this spring? I have a girls trip planned with my mom and sister next month as a pre-wedding get-a-way for Lauren. Her wedding isn’t until July, but we wanted to make sure we got it in before it got too busy!
