Summer 2018 Trends and Must-Have Accessories
Have I already mentioned that I am SO excited for summer? Like once or twice? Or maybe a million times? Well, I am! And so is my little boy! He just wants to play outside all day, every day, with his cousins and friends, and he is begging us to buy one of those huge swingset playsets for our backyard! And I want to buy one for him so, so bad! I just can’t wait for summer, and I’m so excited to stock up on all of our summertime essentials—hopefully, that includes that amazing playset! 😉 Here are a few of our favorite summertime accessories!
When you’re out in the sun with your little ones all day, sun protection is definitely a top priority! So here are a few products to help you keep your baby safe from those harmful UV rays! We love Sun Bum’s Baby Bum line of products. They’re vegan, paraben-free, and most importantly, tear-free! Here are a few of our favorite products from Sun Bum.
We also really love these i play., Inc. sun hats because they are made from a lightweight, breathable, quick-dry, UPF 50+ material. So they will definitely keep your little one cool, comfortable, and protected from the sun for all of your favorite summer adventures!
We also love these Jack and Winn trucker hats because the mesh panel in the back makes them breathable and a much cooler option for the summer. They have adjustable snapbacks and are available in a variety of sizes, so it will be easy to find one to fit any age!
We also have a ton of cute sunglasses for kids, and since they retail at $9.99 you won’t have to stress out about them getting broken! If you’re looking for cute summer sunglass for your kiddo, call us at 1-888-677-5583 to order or visit us in-store!
My little boy loves to wrap up in a cozy towel or robe after a day at the pool or the lake, so I love these cute hooded towels from Little Unicorn. I also love that we’re now carrying them in sizes for little kids and big kids, so when your kiddo outgrows the smaller size (probably around 15-18 months) you can size up and buy the big kid towel! And the larger towels have the same hood and pockets as the smaller towels, they’re just much larger!
Salt Water Sandals are my absolute favorite summertime sandals—for myself and for my little man! They are can be worn in the water, in the sand, and around town. And they last forever! A couple summers ago, I bought an inexpensive pair of sandals for my little boy, and they wore out before summer had even started! So I decided to spend a little more and buy him a pair of Salt Water Sandals, and they lasted all summer long! And they’re actually tucked away in my box of things to save for another kiddo.
Native Shoes are another fun option for summertime shoes! They don’t have buckles, so it’s easy to put them on and take them off. And the toes are covered, so I love that they’re a lightweight shoe but still have toe protection.
These cute Itzy Ritzy Teethers are so cute for the summer! They’re made of a non-toxic silicone and free of BPA, PVC, phthalates, lead, and cadmium. Their open design makes it easy for little fingers to hold onto them, and they have a textured side for soothing sore gums. And check out these cute designs!
I also love these cute Oli & Carol Farmers Market Teethers. They are made from 100 percent natural latex taken from Hevea Malaysian trees and hand-painted with natural, food-grade dyes. They are completely non-toxic and free of BPA, PVC, phthalate, and nitrosamine. They were designed in Barcelona and hand-painted in Morocco, and they are available in a variety of shapes!
A lightweight cotton or bamboo muslin swaddle blanket is definitely a must-have for summer! And they can be used for so much more than swaddling your newborn! For our little boy’s first couple of summers, we used his swaddle blankets all the time! Over the top of his infant car seat or stroller to shade him from the sun. As a nursing cover. And so many other things!
Summer Diaper Bag
Last, but not least, if you’re looking for the perfect summer bag for all of your adventures, check out this cute Logan + Lenora Oversized Carryall Tote! It can be used as a beach bag, pool bag, or a carryall tote for any adventure! It is big enough to carry everything you’ll need, waterproof, and super cute! It has a large outer exterior zipper pocket and another large interior zipper pocket. And I love these cute prints!
I just love all of these cute summer products, but I have to say that Logan + Lenora Oversized Carryall Tote is my absolute favorite! And I’d love to fill it with all of our favorite summertime essentials! Like the Salt Water Sandals and Sun Bum Baby Bum SPF 50 Lotion! Have I mentioned that I’m really excited for summer?!?!
