My order from Land's End arrived today with new Sun Life outfits for all 3 kids: Short sleeved solid colored shirts and solid colored shorts for the boys, and a short-sleeved shirt with a cute flower design on it for The Pea. They love their new summer clothes -- the colors are gorgeous (3Po picked a yellow shirt and olive shorts, Jammy got a light blue shirt and navy shorts, and The Pea's shirt is pink) and the fit is great.
I'm stil on the fence about the look and feel of the clothes, though -- too much like swimwear. The kids were quite confused -- the boys kept asking if these were swimming clothes. The fabric is almost identical to the material used for rashguard shirts, and indeed they do look like rashguard shirts. The shorts have very similar material and cut to swim trunks, so when the kids walk around in these clothes inthe summer, I wonder if people will think they're on their way to the pool. Not that it matters given the peace of mind I'm getting with the UPF 50 protection.
