When I think of Modern style, I think of bold prints, bright colors, and hipsters. This pear print bathing suit is very retro with its classic one piece shape, and vibrant pear print. Comes in sizes 3 to 6 months - 2 to 3 years. If you love this print, there is also a matching toweling poncho, and a pear print bucket hat. Check it out at (http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/)
My favorite sandals for girls are by a brand called Hoy Shoe Saltwater Sandals, are waterproof, and come in every color imagine able. From basics like black, tan, and navy, to vibrant colors like fuschia, lime, and turquoise, there is a color to go with every summertime outfit. This brand also is for kids of all sizes starting at Baby 3 to a Big Kid 9. Shop the collection now at (www.nordstrom.com.)
This one is for the Modern Moms to tote to the beach with all their kids gear. I love the scribble print from little hip squeaks. This limited edition canvas tote can be found on (http://littlehipsqueaks.com/) for just $9! This is such a steal for this stylish carryall.
No "hipster" is complete without a pair of ray bans or sunglasses inspired by the iconic brand. These
roasted retro sunglasses from baby gap are beyond cool, and come in this awesome color called lava
orange. These sunglasses are one size fits all for your toddler boys. Although they are in the boy section these would look awesome on your little girls too!
