Have The Cutest Baby At The Pool

Suits and such for little bathers

poolside

The most important aspect of pool season is sunscreen application, of course. But showing off your baby in precious swimwear is a close second.

The new Belk store at the Galleria Dallas (13350 Dallas Pkwy., 972.702.7100) has a nice selection of one-piece and two-piece sets like this Ralph Lauren tankini ($41.25) for girls as young as 3 or this Hartstrings suit ($36). For classic boys’ looks, stop at A Tiny Hiney (11661 Preston Haven Dr., #210, 972.818.2000), where you’ll find trunks with stripes ($58), ducks ($32), and pelicans ($29). Baby Bliss (6721 Snider Plaza, 469.232.9420) stocks Tea Collection’s Seaside Tile tankini ($45), plus infant sunsuits in lots of colors and patterns—like this Snapper Rock seahorse number ($44). (We also like their Wet Happened pouch ($20), for sopping suits.) But the largest local selection of baby and toddler suits is probably at Kid Biz (8408 Preston Center Plaza, 214.692.5437), where you'll find super girly options like a pompom ruffle suit by PilyQ ($74), and more sporty selections like a whale one-piece with pink gingham trim by Lilo Tati ($61). And for après-swim chills, we're all about this darling sweatshirt ($38) from Peek...Aren’t You Curious (8687 N. Central Expy., 214.987.2537).
