Here Comes the Sun (do-do-do-do)

We are so ready for summer. Midwest springs are always a tease because there are days like today when it's sunny and almost balmy, and then two days from now it will be cool and rainy. My family can't wait for the lazy hazy days of summer. We're ready to go with our pool pass, sun screen, and bathing suites. 

Stinky Pants, a cool Chicago boutique, carries a fantastic line of children's bathing suits in hard-to-find brands so you can be sure your tot won't be donning the same trunks as his pool buddies. A bit on the pricey side, their suits start at $30. But if your family is like mine going swimming three or four times a week, you'll get a ton of wear out of them making it worth the investment in something high quality to last the entire season. 

In addition to swim wear, Stinky Pants carries stylish lines of clothes, shoes, accessories, and toys. The shop owners, a trend-setting husband and wife team, take pride in finding unique products. There's so much goodness in their store it's hard to decide what to order. I'm coveting the Floral Bloomer Set for Olivia, and if money were no object I would take one of every thing in the whole shop! For boys, I recommend the Knucklehead Bowling Shirt - How stinkin' cute is that!

Have your suit and swim in it too. Cool Midwest Mom readers can receive 15% off their order by using the promotional code "midwestmom" - all lower case, no quotations. The discount is good on regular and sale priced items. What are you waiting for? Get shopping!
