Laila in purple robe

summer tees and swim robes

Now that we have warmer weather and longer day light hours (#yaassssss), we‘re practically living at the pool and posting up at our favorite Southern California beaches. We just love the water! And with years of experience under our belts now, we know there are really just a few, key staples that you need for fun by the pool or ocean: a solid swim/beach tote, sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, some water toys and of course bathing suits + hats + swim shoes. A towel is also obviously a necessity too but the four of us mommas agree that a quick drying swim robe is the better option for the little ones. So when we were approached by Manali of Tee and Tot to check out her collection of baby and kids wear, we were instantly drawn to her practical, functional and simple robes. We knew they’d be perfect for the summer season.

Between the low-key, no fuss design and the thin yet soft, absorbent fabric, (which dries so fast!!), we were sold. We like the idea of being able to throw these short-sleeved (love that detail!) on the kids after pool and beach time to get them dried and warm fast. Just imagine, the walk home or to the car…so much easier than trying to keep a beach towel wrapped around them where it’s constantly falling off their little bodies, they’re tripping over the edges and complaining of being wet and cold!

The price point is so good too, you guys. These 100% cotton, durable robes go for $13.99 and at that price, we honestly will to grab a couple per kid so that we‘re always good to go and ready for all the upcoming summer time pool/beach fun and vacations.

For sizing, we got size 5 for most of our kids within the age range of 5-6 but they come in a variety of sizes for age 1 to age 6 and in 5 colors. The robes are a little longer than we has expected but it’s not an issue at all, in fact…it kept them more covered and even cozier! They are also short-sleeved but again, for the season it totally works.

Tee and Tot offers fun onesies and tees for newborns all the way to age 4 on their site. Manali was kind enough to send a tee for the baby of our Chai Mommas fam and we have to say, it’s not hard for this handsome fella to make anything look good! But the tee is really adorable – “on my playlist, wheels on the bus…all day long” – omg how cute?!! Plus the material is super soft too. Most of these items are around $18-19.

To kickoff summer (which is omg, only a few short days away!!), we teamed up with Tee and Tot to give away one $35.00 gift card to Tee and Tot, to one lucky follower. Simple details to enter are on our Instagram page, “thechaimommasblog”.

Good luck! May this season be full of lazy pool days and lots of toes in the sand! And the best, summer vibes to all of you!
