I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. You just can’t beat summers in Maine. We only get so many months of warm weather, and we absolutely take advantage of it here in Vacationland.
So, when I was given the chance to try out an outfit from GrUVyWear for Biz, I was super excited. Because, let’s face it, the kid’s skin doesn’t exactly see the sun year round. And I’d rather not have him go through the many sunburns I experienced when I was younger while no one paid attention to sun protection.
In case you haven’t figured it out, the UV part of their name represents the UV protection that the GrUVyWear gear offers.
We got pair of gray shorts and a cool top with camouflage sleeves. Totally Biz’s style. What I noticed right away was the quality of the material. I have purchased plenty of tops that say they have UV protection. This outfit seemed to be much more durable than the others. When Biz tried it on, he giggled because he liked the way the material felt. It fit him like a glove, and it wasn’t clingy or too tight.
What I especially like about the outfit is that it’s perfect for any summer occasion. You can wear it in the water or just playing in the yard or biking around town. Perfect for my kids who like to jump from activity to activity and don’t want to bother with changing their clothes. Or want to do the changing in public. I found that the outfit dried pretty quickly as well.
(And, yes, they even have GrUVyWear for adults.)
Biz wore his GrUYyWear gear this past weekend. It was fairly warm, though not hot. He and G wanted to break out their new kiddie pool and play with their water guns. Biz went right into the cold pool and had a ball. He actually skipped lunch entirely because he didn’t want to stop playing. His outfit kept him protected from the direct sun, and I found it actually kept his temperature pretty regulated while he was in and out of the pool. (For the record, I would have frozen if I went in that cold water, even if it was in the sun all day.)
Now, the fun part. Just for reading this post (or at least skimming to this point), I get to offer a special discount code on GrUVyWear gear for another jennifer readers. Visit the GrUVyWear website now and use the code SAVE1526 to get 15% off your order. I say now because it will expire on July 15th. So, go!
I loved Biz’s outfit, but they have lots of other style to choose from, including tops with rhinestones. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary outfit from GrUVyWear in exchange for this post. All opinions expressed, of course, are my own. Like I would have it any other way.
