The Spirit Sunglasses Tee by Catimini is full of red, white, and orange spirit stripes, with a bright blue sunglasses motif, making this graphic tee a go-to pick for the 4th.

Nothing says “let freedom ring” like being at the beach on the 4th of July! Unfortunately, nothing kills a good vacation like a bad sunburn. So, before you hit the boardwalk this Independence Day, be sure to pack some UVF protective clothing by Platypus Australia for your little ones.
Your little girl will look super cute wearing this flirty and fun “fru-fru” one piece swimsuit paired with a cute blue checkered sun jacket that offers stylish coverage. Add the coordinating lycra boardie shorts and your little fashionista can easily transition from the pool or beach to lunch without any fuss.
Your little man could care less about being fashionable, but that’s no reason for him not to look just as handsome while keeping his beach bum safe from sunburns and scrapes. We particularly like the Azure Slim Boardshort in a fun red, white and blue print. While they can obviously be worn in the water, these are shorts that your child can practically live in all summer long! Be extra sun safe and cool by pairing those shorts with a red short sleeve rash guard.
The beauty of Platypus Australia is that these UPF 50+ essentials offer excellent sun protection without irritating labels or seams that will irritate your child’s skin. It just doesn’t get any more patriotic than that!
