Ready To Play: Kids Summer Essentials From Look.Com
July 17, 2014
Who wouldn't want that life? But, as any parent can attest, that much fun means dirty, stinky kids and many, many dirty clothes. I speak from experience- somehow running around the backyard for my two children can instantly turn into a dirt rodeo. It is par for the course with all kiddos, and luckily Look.com stocks the best brands (Carter's, Splendid, iPlay, and many more) in children's clothing for babies, toddlers and big kids, so you can order up a load of summer clothes and be ready to handle mud fights, juice spills, and any other outfit changing events. And somehow, kids have the knack to turn any non-event into an outfit-changing mess.
If you suddenly find yourself outfitting a kid in the middle of a growth spurt this summer, or needing to prepare for an upcoming field trip, vacation or camp, Look.com features speedy 2-day shipping, always. So, no need to join the rush to the retail stores with the other frenzied moms as soon as the summer clothes come out in March. Throw together a quick list of clothing staples and peruse the cuteness at Look.com. Here are some tips from a seasoned laundry basket-toting mom on your best bets for summer duds.
Kids cycle through graphic t-shirts, polos and onesies at an alarming rate. Does your child love dinosaurs? Look darling in Flowers? There's a shirt for that, and Look.com has it. You will love the selection, and the kids will love tops that help them express who they are and feature their favorite animals or television characters.
Venturing out with a newly toilet trained toddler? Avert a potty emergency, and encourage independence, with elastic waist shorts and skirts that your child can pull on and off by themselves.
If your little lass loves dresses, try to steer her towards breathable cotton frocks that will help keep her cool. Cotton and jersey will wear and wash better than other fabrics, too.
An essential twofer is swimwear with built-in UV protection. Rash guards, hats and swimsuits made with UV-protecting materials are an easy way to avoid any extra damage from the sun. Plus, it is always handy to have an extra set of swimwear on hand in case of a too busy building sand castles/not a porta-potty in sight accident occurs. (And they will.) I like to keep a beach bag packed with back-up gear stashed in the car for spur of the moment jaunts. Don't forget the sunglasses, too.
Fill up that shopping cart, revel in the quick delivery time, and embrace the ice cream stains, the sand in pockets, and the endless fun you and your kids are going to have. More importantly, now that the kids are suitably outfitted, what are you going to wear this summer?
