Stylish and Summer Smart with #GrUVyWear

Our family has been ready for summer for months now. My kids keep begging me to blow up the kiddie pool and get in the water. The first thing we started looking for in anticipation of our summer fun was UV protective clothing that they could use outside while they enjoyed their water play. We also wanted to find something that could be easily taken to the beach and other fun water places as well.

When we found GrUVywear we knew we had scored big!

We received an 18-24 month two piece set with a rash-guard shirt and shorts. They fit perfectly with room to grow on my petite 18 month old. And at the rate she's growing I'm sure she'll be able to use it next summer too!

I absolutely loved the color and the style. My daughter was obsessed with the flowers and kept pointing to them and smiling. I also loved the length of both the shorts and the shirt. Instead of exposing most of her arm, the GrUVywear shirt covers almost to her elbow. And the shorts cover all the way to her knees.

By wearing  UV protective wear on most of their bodies I don't have to apply as much sunscreen and I don't have to worry about missing little nooks and crannies. And since we live in Southern California we are always out in the sun with playdates, activities, and relaxing afternoons on the beach.

I absolutely love that GrUVywear is not only for the kids but for adults as well. I'm already eyeing a few items they have online as well as some of the hats they sell as well. And the selection they have is wonderful. From zippered to long sleeved shirts to shirts with rhinestone bling, there's something for everyone. Having a one-stop shop for my family's UV protective clothing is very convenient.

Would you like to purchase a pair of GrUVywear for your kids? Your in luck!

Love this idea! We live in Florida and the sun is everywhere. I worry about if I have them covered in enough sunscreen - this might just be the answer. Thanks for sharing!

I am very protective when it comes to my kid's skin in the sun. I love any swimwear with UV protection. I'll definitely be checking them out!

I have a long sleeve rash guard I usually wear to the beach. It takes some getting used to but it's nice not having to apply as much sunscreen.

These suits look great for my kids. They tend to get very bad heat rash and these look like it will prevent it from happening. THank you!

We have one of these for my Princess and we love it! It is so great. I feel better about being out in the sun all day when she is wearing this.

I would LOVE summer wear like that, save my daughter's skin, let her still play outside in the water, and it's SUPER cute!

I live in a desert where the sun is super intense. Sunscreen is a must for us.

Here in Florida my kids slather the sunscreen on everyday whether sunny or not.

The zip ups would be perfect for me, I love being out in the sun but I am always cold! We like to walk along the beach but the slightest breeze gives me goosebumps!

We always need protection from the sun here in Central FL. My boys are mostly fair skinned and it's important to keep them protected.

These shirts are fantastic
