Recs: Swim Leggings

Recs: Swim Leggings

This has been the summer of the swim legging! What's that you ask? Yes, forget the thong, I am talking full length swim pants. I have fully embraced them and may never go back!

My kids have been wearing swim pants since they were wee ones to protect their delicate skin from the harsh sun. After a melanoma scare of my own, I realized the best way to protect myself, was to join the crew and get a pair of my own. What I didn't expect was that I would love them so much! Turns out everything that makes them great for kids, makes them great for adults too.

The benefits of head to toe sun coverage are many. Not only does it help minimize sun exposure and worry of reapplying sunscreen, but also because you'll need to apply less sunscreen overall, you are also reducing chemical exposure from the sunscreen itself. The chemicals in sunscreens are easily absorbed by the body and at potentially dangerous levels. The less chemicals we put on our skin, the better. (For more see the EWG 2020 Guide to Sunscreen).

And, on top of all that, they are super fun to wear, look great and are totally effortless. Plus, there are so many cool styles out there now (I am slightly obsessed!) that you'll be sure to find one that suits you. Here are some of our current favorites from @carve designs and @mott50

I've also been asked if they are hot. Not at all. I find they are like built in A/C if you hop in the water for a dip. They keep you cooler longer. On cooler beach days I sometimes take mine off before going in the water.

Would you give swim leggings a try? Have a favorite?

Packing's a Breeze

We've been doing a lot of field trips with The Breeze Bag to ensure everything is functioning as expected. You really need a full day at the beach to know for sure. Ha. Or a week in Bali... if only!

A typical beach outing with the kids involves the following, plus our favorite beach hats:

We easily packed all this with room to spare! Filled one pop section with dry coverups, the other with dry towels, and all the snacks, drinks and accessories tucked away in the middle. Dreamy. So easy to locate items. Plus the kids have the system down, proudly locating items on their own, and well aware that the orange is for dry stuff and blue is for wet. #momwin

I didn't quite get to read a magazine... but I'd rather be splashing in the waves anyways.
