It’s no secret that I’m a beach loving, sunny day kind of girl.  But as much as I love the warmth of the sun and sound of the ocean, I’m a fanatic about protecting my family and myself from the sun.  I’m excited to share this special partnership with Cabana Life with you today.

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and today is Melanoma Monday.  My grandmother, who was almost never in the sun, had Melanoma that resulted in reconstructive surgery on her nose.  She was lucky and was cancer free after that.  Just two short years ago, my best friend lost her precious father to Melanoma.  With summer around the corner and so many outdoor activities, protecting yourself and your loved ones is so important!

In honor of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, Cabana Life is encouraging everyone to Spread Sunshine Safely! Enjoy $20 towards stylish sun protection that will help prevent skin cancer with code “ISPREADSUNSHINE”  Get others excited about exposing their style, not their skin by sending friends and family $20 via email and social media.

Save $ and save lives this May! Every purchase contributes to delivering 1,000 free skin cancer screenings through American Academy of Dermatology’s Spot Me program. Let’s change the conversation when it comes to sun safety by wearing stylish UPF50+ clothing and #spreadsunshinesafely

If you aren’t familiar with Cabana Life, they combine fashion with protection.  Both of the founders met when they were with Vanity Fair and know a thing or two about style.  Melissa and Alyssa founded Cabana Life after Melissa was diagnosed with Melanoma at 26.  Did you know:

  • One in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
  • 90% of skin aging is due to daily sun exposure.
  • Five or more sunburns can lead to an 80 percent greater risk of developing melanoma.
  • Melanoma is the deadliest cancer for young women ages 29 to 34.

I love these dresses from Cabana Life.  When we were shooting these photos, my fabulous photographer, Mary, said “I wish there was a “touch here” option on blogs!  This fabric is amazing!”  She is right.  It is the most silky, soft fabric that feels cool on your skin.  I wish they made pajamas!  I may just sleep in these that are that comfortable.

The shirtdress above comes in each of their seasonal prints as does the tunic dress.  I love the concept of having each print available in all styles of dresses, swimsuits and cover ups.  I wore the Beach Bungalow shirtdress when we hosted a soccer swim party Saturday and received so many compliments.

Cabana Life makes a full line of sun protective clothing for the whole family including swim suits, cover ups and rash guards for men, girls and boys.

Each season they have gorgeous styles and prints to choose from.  Their clothing runs True To Size and these dresses are XS which is my typical size (number size is a 0).  I have swimsuits from them as well and they run on the small side as do all swimsuits.  My suits are a S and I usually wear a 4 in swimsuits.  The children’s items run True To Size as well.  All of their items are UNDER $100!  These dresses are $90 and $94.  Incredible style and protection at perfect prices.

I hope you will try Cabana Life and take them up on their special offer to Spread the Sunshine Safely.  Get all the details here.  I can’t wait to order more!

Here’s to Spreading Sunshine Safely!
