Matching in Shédo Lane | Stylish Sun Protective Apparel

As a mama to fair skinned girls who live in Arizona, I am always looking for ways to keep our skin safe from the harsh sun!  I was recently introduced to Shédo Lane from the makers of SwimZip (one of our favorite sun safe swimwear companies).  Shédo Lane is similar to SwimZip in that they use sun protective UPF 50+ fabrics.  But, skin protection is not the only bonus from Shédo Lane clothing.  It is also stylish clothing that is made from the softest material you have ever worn…  no lies!  Their UV sun protective apparel brings together function and fashion, so we can indulge in the sun and not worry.

And good news, Shédo Lane has us all covered (literally!).  They offer clothing for the whole family; men, women, children and babies.  If you know me, you know I love matching my girls.  They are in prime ages where they request it and think it is fun, so I capitalize on the opportunity to match them any chance I get.  Yes, I am one of those moms which makes Shédo Lane a perfect company for us!  Their  apparel comes in different sizes and in the same colors and patterns so I can mix and match the styles between the girls!

My girls are obsessed with their striped swing dresses because they are ridiculously soft.  Laid back comfort coupled with athletic style make them perfect to run around in at the zoo.  The girls love these twirling dresses so much that they even ask to sleep in them, and I don’t blame them.  The dresses fit true to size and come in the perfect colors to layer.

I love my striped infinity scarf, and yes the fabric matches the girl’s dresses.  I love that it protects my vulnerable neck area and because it is so versatile, it can be worn multiple ways with it’s handy and stylish button up closure.  Wear it completely snapped up like an infinity scarf, unsnap it to wear it casually draped around your neck, or go halvsies and leave it half snapped for a scarf/collar effect. The possibilities are endless!

I also fell in love with the women’s open back long sleeve shirt.  It has become my favorite workout shirt because of it’s stylish and breathable open back and of course I love the handy thumb holes.  When I am outdoors I am always looking to wear something comfortable, sun safe and this uber soft jersey knit is the winner!  I am not one to show a lot of skin, so I appreciate the modestly open back, the round neckline and a moderately fitted front. Trust me, because it is so soft and cozy, you’ll want to wear it everyday… and I pretty much do!

All of these items are UPF 50+ sun protection, tag-less and machine washable.  Win-Win-Win.

I also appreciate that family-run Shédo Lane believes in giving back.  They donate 5% of their net profits to non-profit skin cancer fighting organizations.  I love when companies give back. Let’s all support one another!


So what are you waiting for?  Give Shédo Lane a try and pick out your favorite pieces from their sun safe and stylish collection.  You, too, will be amazed at the soft materials and cute looks to choose from.  Next up on my shopping list: kid joggers for my girls, a quarter zip for my hubby and  a snuggle wrap for myself!  So may great options!

Happy sun-safe shopping!www.espressoeverafter.com

Let’s Cuddle with Gentry California & Kid Friendly Holiday Movies

I don’t know about you, but I am beyond excited for the holidays this year.  I love decorating the house, the chilly weather and the cozy and snuggly times shared with my family.  One of our favorite holiday traditions is cuddling up with the girls, and watching our favorite holiday movies.  We love to put on our favorite pajamas, snack on goodies and get into the holiday spirit.  It is a tradition that my girls have come to love and look forward to, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

This Winter BUNDLE UP In Style | Featuring The Children’s Place

I love jackets, scarfs, hats, gloves and just about anything winter clothes related. So when it comes to picking out adorable winter looks for my girls, I have way too much fun!  Contrary to popular belief, Phoenix can still get chilly in the winter. Subzero? No.  Teens to 30’s? You betchya.  For this reason, I need to get my girls ready for the change in season.  For my little ones, I love bundling them up in the marshmallow-like puffer jackets with a coordinating hat. There is nothing cuter in my mind than a BUNDLED marshmallow running around!

Halloween Costumes 2016

I absolutely love picking out costumes for my girls every year.  Now that Paisley is 4.5 years old, she definitely knows what she likes and it was so much fun hearing her ideas.  She told me that she wanted a costume that she could coordinate with her little sister, and she told me exactly what her sister should be.  Good thing Payton can’t talk yet, or I’m sure we wouldn’t hear the end of it!  The final outcome is absolutely adorable and I am so excited for Trick Or Treating this year. But first… A recap. Continue Reading

Autumn Attire: From Summer To Fall – Transitioning Your Graphic Tees

I am always looking for a way to successfully transition my seasonal looks into my already steady wardrobe.  I love to find ways to mix and match my previously owned clothing with new trendy pieces.  One item that I love mixing around with each season are my graphic tees.  I have a couple staple tees that I adore and with a few minor tweaks and accessories, I can transition my summer look into a fall look, all while still wearing my graphic tees on the regular.


Here are a few of my favorite graphic tee looks mixed in with my fall favorites…
