Cabana Life










 
Dress: c/o Cabana Life
Panama Hat: from Greece, similar here & here
Flip Flops: Havaianas
Sunglasses: Loft (old), similar here

I love being outdoors during the Summer season. I love soaking up the sun rays and hanging out by the beach. However, being outside in the heat comes with risk. The skin exposure can lead to damaged skin and/or life threatening illness. Did you know that your every day clothing only has a SPF 5. That's not a lot of protection against the sun.

Wearing anything with  UPF 50+ will block against 98% of UVA and UVB rays. Talk about safety! Unfortunately, it is rare to find clothing with that much protection and/or looks stylish. Luckily, Cabana Life offers fashionable clothing while protecting your skin. Their clothing has 50+ UV protection through a patented SkinSafe technology.  They offer swimsuits, hats, tops, dresses, pants, whatever article of clothing or beachwear essentials, Cabana Life has you covered and they're all super cute! Talk about a win! I also love how they are all about educating the risk of skin cancer. As someone who is currently a cancer fighter, I strongly believe in educating and preventing to minimize the risk of cancer.

Since I'm all about wearing dresses during the summer, I decided it would be appropriate to select a dress from their collection. I am wearing the Monte Carlo shift dress and I love it. Not only am I protecting myself from the sun, but the dress is so cute! I love the coral color & print. It the perfect dress to wear to the beach, pool, or just walking around. I know this dress will be in my suitcase when I visit my in laws in Sarasota. As a lover of stripes, I am eyeing this navy stripe dress. Tre says it is so me. Pair this Lava shirt dress with flatform espadrilles and it's a perfect day date outfit.

Have you guys checked out Cabana Life? Any favorites?

  36. Rach, I love this post! That dress is so fun- colorful, vibrant, and super flattering! And I love that you wrote about keeping your skin safe in this post. My friend has melanoma and I always make sure to protect myself as much as possible. Thanks for raising awareness on this- I feel like people don't pay enough attention to skin cancer and don't consider how much they are at risk!
