I am no fashionista – I crave comfortable, washable, sweat-friendly summer fashion finds. Summertime with kids is all about sweating, getting dirty, and keeping cool. Over the past few summers I’ve really honed in on a great athleisure wardrobe with those goals in mind. (I’m adding a few things from Title Nine as we speak too like comfortable casual tanks.) These are the items I loved last year and I can’t wait to wear again now that the weather is warm.
My Summer Fashion Favorites
I live in these lightweight shorts. They’re super quick to dry and have zip pockets. Perfect for pulling over a swim suit at the beach.
These are a newer pull-on version of the ones I have and love. These look a bit dressy with the right top and shoes and you can get them soaked and sandy on the beach too.
Light and airy boxer type shorts with a loose tee is my go-to for pajamas in the summer. These thin poplin shorts from Gap always come in the cutest prints! I wear them with a cotton tank to sleep.
Can’t forget to mention my favorite safer sunscreen for summer (or anytime we are outside in the sun). We love Beautycounter’s Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Mist and tinted mist. They both have SPF 30 and don’t leave you ghostly white, even though they’re a zinc-based formula. We always have a bottle or two of the mist to spray on the kids, and the tinted mist (available in two shades) gives winter white legs a bit of color!
