Cabana Life Sun Protective Family Swimwear Inspired by Melanoma Survivors

Don’t you just love the chance to wear new swimwear? There are so many styles and brands to choose from that when you find the right piece it is like a huge accomplishment. I have a few tankinis and shorts, but what I realized I lack is something for when evening hits on chilly nights. I may still want to get in the water, but out of the water I get cold and don’t want to have to change or get my regular clothes wet. My Palace Blue Zipper Rashguard from Cabana Life is my new favorite sun protective clothing and swimwear piece.

Cabana Life has swim shorts, bikinis, suits, tanks, tees, coverups and more that all work to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and with pieces like the long-sleeve rashguard I have it is great for those days when the warm day sun brings a chilly sunset. Above is an example of a cover up from the Girls line.

Cabana Life has the boys and men covered too! Their skin-safe fabrics give you the highest rated UV protection that will not wash out in the water or with sweat like sunscreens do. I hate the chore of greasing up my son so if I can cover him with safe clothing wherever I can it eliminates skin areas that I have to apply sunscreen to.

From the water to the meal table their fabric is comfortable to wear all day. It dries fast and looks great with bold colors and/or fun patterns. This brand was started by a skin cancer survivor so they are serious about the protection this fabric gives you and your entire family.

Here is the fun part! They have Mom and Me as well as Daddy and Me matching styles. I love finding these matching sets (and it makes spotting my big and little men in a crowd much easier).

Brooklyn Cloth Co. Surf and Skate Clothing Brand

Recently Anthony received a few pieces of clothing from Brooklyn Cloth Co. and he fell in love with the styles. He is all sports and typically only wears shorts and sports brands tops, socks and hoodies. He loves basketball and loves the basketball style all year. So, it was a gamble to agree for clothing from a surf and skate clothing brand. To my surprise (and perhaps his) the pieces really excited him.

The very next day he grabbed the pair of Brooklyn cloth shorts and the Sherpa-lined jacket to wear to school. Even on warm days, he grabs hoodies and coats to school because his classroom gets chilly. I warned him he may be too warm in the sherpa-lined coat, but there was no talking him out of it even on a 70 degree day.

I think this may be my favorite top. The New York cotton hoodie has the sporty look he typically wears. It is called the Boy’s New York Fleece Hockey Jersey Hoodie. We visited NYC last summer and Anthony fell in love with the city. We will be going back again this summer for a conference and he is so excited. Having these New York branded clothing brings back those memories for him. Such as visiting the Statue of Liberty when we were there.

The top above is called the Boys’ White New York State of Mind Long Sleeved Tee. It looks so sharp on him and with print on the front, back and each sleeve there is something happening on this entire shirt.

The cloth shorts at Brooklyn Cloth Co. fit long like board shorts. I ordered Anthony medium shorts in boys as a 10/12 size he normally wears and they hung long like board shorts should. You can see each piece from the shorts and jackets and how they fit in his video below….

This Target Clothing Line is Specially Made for Children Living with Disabilities

If you have a child who lives with a disability, you know the struggle to find fashionable and yet functional clothing for your little one. Whether it be a texture issue, accessibility or even just getting a proper fit with an age appropriate look, there isn’t a lot of options for parents to choose from. This is where Target has stepped up. They have rolled out a new 40-piece clothing line, Cat & Jack, which will give parents and children a much-needed choice in fashion.

This Target Clothing Line is Specially Made for Children Living with  Disabilities

Accessibility

Children with physical disabilities can have a difficult time finding clothing that fits comfortably around walkers, wheelchairs or other devices necessary for everyday life. The new clothing line launched by Target offers pieces which feature snaps along side seams for easy removal and easy dressing for both children and their caregivers. The pieces with back closures allow for easy access for toileting, or while the child is seated or laying down. Some pieces include additional zippers as needed as well.

Other children’s clothing does not offer such simple access, since pants must be pulled down, shirts lifted over their head and arms pulled through. These are all things that many parents take for granted with dressing their children. Target has removed these obstacles, giving better access for both kids and parents.

Texture

Many children with disabilities, especially those on the Autism Spectrum, have sensitivities to textures like tags or seams. Helping a toddler or child get dressed who is sensitive about the feeling of the clothing can be a daunting, and seemingly impossible task some days. However, the Cat & Jack line has removed this challenge with their release of tagless garments and even clothing pieces which feature a flatter, soft seam.

The garments without tags, simply have the washing information and size printed right into the fabric, therefore eliminating that pesky tag all together. The flat seam garments feature special stitching which prevents the seam from feeling raised or “too bumpy”, as my daughter would call it and much softer against the skin.

Looking Good and Age Appropriate

Whether we want to admit it or not, appearances do matter. This is especially true when you want your children to fit in as much as possible and feel included with their peers. When children are forced to wear clothing that is bigger than needed or has been altered and adapted for their special needs, this sets them apart from their peer group.

With these new clothing pieces from Target, children will be sporting similar fashions to their friends and schoolmates without compromising practicality and functionality. This goes a long way in inclusivity and self-esteem building for your children, which is, after all, an important goal for most parents.

Overall…

The Cat & Jack adaptive clothing line is a much-needed step in the right direction towards giving kids a chance to fit in with their peers, while keeping their specific special needs in mind. What is wonderful about this line is that it is offered at an affordable price, so most parents are not priced out of purchasing these pieces for the kids, as is the case with much of the speciality clothing available for kids.

Children living with disabilities can now learn to help with the dressing process since the snaps and closures are user-friendly, which in turn gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment. These pieces can help teach your child valuable life skills and self-care, while looking good too! These garments are all one giant positive step in the right direction towards giving our kids a chance to be a part of the crowd and building better self-esteem.

Notes To Self Has Fun Socks For Men, Women and Kids

We have Dads and Grads to celebrate right now and I had the pleasure to review a few pairs of fun socks for men and grads from Notes to Self. Whether there is a special man you need to honor or have a grad student that wants to go off to College wearing a conversation piece on their feet or a graduate who is done with college and moving back into your cold basement (just kidding, I hope they are educated and independent at this point), these socks are warm and a lot of fun too!

Who or what is Notes to Self and why are they’re socks different from other socks with words or prints? These socks were created to promote the power of positive thinking. Laura, the founder, loves in Kansas wanted her customers to always have positive reminders at their toes all day long and they are all written in the present tense. Hopefully these simple words on your toes will be a note to yourself to carry a positive attitude and have positive actions.

There are 7 occasions on their website you can shop in from Mother’s and Father’s Day, Teacher Appreciation, Graduation, Wedding, Baby Shower and 4th of July. There are all cuts of socks from infant size to adult. I took a pair camping over Memorial weekend to keep my feet warm at night!

Fun story! 2 years go my husband was sitting on the couch one day and somehow we got on a topic of “If I won the lottery” and he said that he would buy himself “enough socks to wear a brand new pair everyday because nothing feels better than wearing new socks”. Because it was almost his birthday and I really had no gift idea in mind I texted everyone we would be celebrating with in the family and told them to buy lots of socks for work and casual. When his birthday came he had enough socks to wear 1 new pair a day for 2 months! There is not much else that feels better than new socks on your feet and when they make you feel good with positive messages that is a bonus! These socks are made well and are so soft and warm. They really do make great gifts!
