I know summer clothing might not be on our minds, but the warm weather is certainly on mine! I am currently staring outside at a few inches of snow and a temperature that is well below my age. I do much better with the warmer months. If some sunset-beach-chairs-stock-footage.jpgof you are thinking about taking a weekend to the beach, I want to introduce you to some butter soft kids’ clothes! 

We aren’t planning a trip to the beach any time soon, but these polos are making some adorable layering pieces for my little man this winter.

Shēdo Lane is a brand new sister company of SwimZip (as seen on ABC’s Shark Tank), and I am so excited to be introducing and sharing them with our readers! logo.png

Shēdo Lane is a luxury sun protection apparel brand. Utilizing the highest rated, UPF 50+, UV sun protective fabric in complimenting styles, they bring sun protection clothing to its highest form.  Whether it is a morning walk on the beach, a playdate at a favorite playground, an afternoon cup of tea on the patio, or drinks with friends around the pool, Shēdo Lane keeps you covered from the sun’s rays – and looking your best. Shēdo Lane sun protective apparel brings together the function and fashion – so you can indulge in the sun and get on with living your dreams!image2_grande.jpg

We received a toddler 2T polo and found that it runs a little larger than a Carter’s 2T. It fits my little linebacker just fine because he’s so stalky, but on a slender taller toddler, it would be a little baggy.

The material is made from bamboo and it is soft as butter! I seriously wish all kids’ clothes were made this soft and supple. Perfect for snuggling, but stylish enough to wear on a night out! IPhoto087_300dpi.jpg have washed them multiple times and they don’t shrink or lose their shape in any way!

Not only do they offer toddler clothes, but they have clothes for adults!  Who doesn’t want to match their little one? I know I think it’s adorable! I have been eying the cardigan for woman and I will probably be putting it on some sort of wish list for my hubby! I have a feeling I will never want to buy any other brand of shirts!

My only complaint is that the clothes are priced a little high for babies and little ones. One polo is $25. For an adult, I would definitely pay that, but not for a simple toddler shirt. The adult clothes are priced well though. The cardigan I was talkingphoto41_300dpi about is only $40 which is pretty average for a woman’s shirt.

Overall, I have to give Shēdo Lane a 4 out of 5 stars! I can’t stop scrolling through their website, looking at all their comfy clothes! Baby clothes are seriously my weakness.

Have fun shopping!

Puddle Jumper {Review}

I can easily say that Summer is my favorite season and as of June 20th, it’s officially Summer! Compared to the other seasons, the summer months are jam-packed with all sorts of fun activities, with the fan favorite being swimming. Who doesn’t love lounging on a raft, floating for hours in the cool water under the hot summer sun? I know I do. But now that I have kids, namely my wild child almost four year old Stella, I have to be super careful IMG_6934around bodies of water with her. She likes to run and jump right off the edge of the pool, which can damn near give a mom a heart attack.

Last year, I began researching the best and safest floaties/vests for toddlers to wear in the water. I came across the Puddle Jumper and I am so glad I did! The Puddle Jumper is a life jacket that can actually help teach little ones how to swim. It has two arm pieces that slide on up to the bicep and a piece that wraps around the chest and an adjustable clip clips in the back. It keeps the child afloat and stays on while in the water without riding upIMG_6945 around the child’s neck. My wild child jumps off the diving board with hers and comes right back up! Of course, you still will not leave your child unattended while in the water, but it gives peace of mind that your child is safe. The best thing is it is comfortable and the fabric allows for less possibility of chafing.

It fits children from 30 to 50 pounds and comes in so many different designs and colors! There are four different types of Puddle Jumpers: The Original is made of nylon, The Deluxe and Deluxe 3D are made of polyester and The Ultra is made of hydroprene. All are approved by the US Coast Guard and made with Crosstech floatation foam. The Deluxe and The Ultra are antimicrobial as well, meaning odor-causing bacteria will not grow on them. All Puddle Jumpers can be used in any pool, lake or the ocean. You will love knowing your little one will be safe around any body of water. The Puddle Jumper will put those blow up arm floaties to shame!

I give the Puddle Jumper a 5 out of 5 stars. I absolutely love it and my daughter does, too. She has no real limits while in the pool with it on. She can swim in the deep end, jump off the diving board or side of the pool and can play with the big kids, even though she can’t touch the bottom of the pool. She’s also learned to swim because of it which is an added bonus. If you frequent pools or lakes during the summer, I highly recommend getting one IMG_6944or two for your little one. They’re priced right from around $20 to about $25, depending on the type and design you chose. You can thank me later when you have the best summer yet (with a toddler)!
