Mermaid suits: Shimmertail | Mermaid necklace: Shimmertail | Colorful glasses: Lilly Pulitzer for Target (really similar style here)
To quote Aerial from Disney’s The Little Mermaid, “Have you ever seen anything so wonderful in your life?” I fell in love with these sparkling mermaid tails as soon as I saw them and I knew that my nieces would love them even more. I can’t think of a better way to spend a hot summer day than swimming in the pool with mermaid nieces. Watching them giggle and splash put a big smile on my face. It was quite refreshing to see them away from their IPads. The little ones were overjoyed when they saw that there were matching mermaid suits for their American Girl Dolls. So cute, right?! The suits for both the dolls and girls come in a variety of shimmery colors and sizes. These would make the most unforgettable Christmas or birthday gifts! Hmmm, best aunt EVER award coming my way? I think so!
I had the chance to meet the sweet and talented ladies behind Shimmertail. Jenny Stanger is the mother and her 11 year old daughter, Lyndi, is the designer of the brand. They were truly genuine and as darling as can be. They are based here in Utah and I’m always more than happy to support local businesses.

Have a lovely day and remember, always be yourself. Unless you can be a mermaid. Then always be a mermaid!
