Every once in a while we are inspired to create matching outfits by something we see on TV. Late last night I was catching up on missed episodes of Shark Tank and glanced up to see these adorable SwimZip sun protective swimwear for children. The mom had been diagnosed with skin cancer when she was just 26 years old and felt compelled to turn adversity into opportunity by creating a line of children's swimwear that would be easy to wear, cute, and most importantly, sun protective. Her passion convinced one of the sharks to invest in the company and inspired me to take five minutes to check if there were any zippered swim shirts for mom and dad that might coordinate with with SwimZip children's line. It turns out Coolibar, one of my favorite companies (I wear their hoodies all summer long because they offer a long sleeved sun protective hoodie that is light weight enough to wear on hot sunny days) has a zippered UPF 50+ swim jacket available in a host of colors for both men and women. The advantage of full zippered clothes is that they are much easier to take on and off especially when wet. A jacket also eliminates the need to constantly be re-applying sunscreen which will make the entire beach going experience so much easier and more pleasant.
