While swim season might still be a few weeks away for much of the country, in gorgeous Miami it’s summer all year long! That means days at the beach, relaxing afternoons by the pool and—of course—plenty of reasons to rock Target’s swimwear assortment, including on-trend and fun styles for babies to adults.

For Miami-based lifestyle expert Inger Mendoza, the perfect reason to show off her family’s new Target swimwear was son Miguel’s seventh birthday pool party! Inspired in part by Cat & Jack’s new ocean-themed swim trunks, the party featured underwater creatures and cute shark décor (Miguel’s favorite animal!).

Check out pool party tips from Inger, as well as photos from the party, below.

“When we saw the sea creature-patterned swimsuits that go perfectly with the party theme, we knew we had to buy them. Miguel was excited when we saw the shark prints—he loves sharks! He chose to wear the Cat & Jack shark rash guard and matching shark jaws swim trunks,” Inger says. “Plus, all Cat & Jack swimwear is made from recycled material, which is a bonus.”

“For the party I chose the super cute, chic and comfortable gingham-printed bikini top and the matching bottoms. I completed my look with a ruffle sleeve dress and a pair of stylish sandals. For our littlest guys, we chose swimsuits that went nicely with the theme. For Santi, we chose a pair of striped swim trunks and Matias sported a geometric-patterned pair.”

Birthday snacks and cake set up

“As soon as we chose the theme, we went straight to Target to get everything we needed from décor to healthy snacks,” Inger shares. “Living in Miami, it’s important for us to get the proper gear for the family, whether it’s sunscreen or a fun hat that will keep the sun out of our faces. With four growing boys who have different styles, it’s great to know that Target has multiple options to choose from all at affordable prices.”
