Five star boardies for the boys + Father’s Day Giveaway!

photo 1 (1)The temps are heating up in the Southern Hemisphere and usually about now, I look through our wardrobe and do an audit of our summer holiday gear.

This year, things are different. I’m already all sorted.

We’ve just come back from a mega trip to the US where we visited Florida and did an awesome cruise of the Caribbean.   When we weren’t checking out themeparks or off on island daytrips, we relaxed by the pool.

We stayed in some pretty swish hotels and wanted our boys to look the part, so I set about finding some fivestar swimwear.   That’s when I discovered Aussie designed Tom and Teddy boardshorts.  I follow them on Instagram and had heard their insta following say great things.

I was so happy when our boys (and my husband!) got the opportunity to try them out.   I wasn’t sure if Mr Jetsetting Kids was going to go for it… but he did.  These guys offer some very stylish, modern designs in vibrant colours….and although he’s pretty conservative he loved them! #phew.

I wouldn’t recommend a product if I didn’t like it and i’m always happy to share a good experience. Here’s what our family liked about their Tom and Teddy boardshorts:

1. I could spot my kids a mile away. Not only because they were the best dressed kids by the pool, but also because of the standout design and colour I had chosen. The colour has also stayed true, wash after wash.  The fabric is salt water and chlorine resistant.

2. Father and son matching sets are available.  My tribe rocked.

3. The velcro backpocket is awesome.  We used it for collecting treasures from the beach and other times for stashing coins to buy icecream.

4. Great fit with drawstring to kept them firmly secured!  No awkward #noonewantstoseeyour… moments here.

5. I couldn’t get them out of them. The boardshorts were stylish to wear around casually. #holidaymode.

6. They felt comfy to wear (soft cotton lining) but are manufactured with rugged material that is UV protected. I feel pretty confident we’re going to get much more than one summer out of these.

Lastly, they’re just fun!
