I was offered the opportunity to check out ANYTHING I wanted at SwimOutlet.com, in March, in Canada. I live in the warmer part of Canada and it was still hard to look at all that swimwear, beach coverups, footwear and other summery kind of stuff. I rallied and started to get excited to peruse all the great swim related gear for the whole family. I checked out all the ladies swimwear from performance/sport specific suits to fashion swimwear. They have. it. all. Seriously, they have everything, from maternity, to long-torso, to large bust, they have it covered.
So the little voice in my head is all “Yeah let’s do this-let’s find a swim suit!”, that is until I clicked on the footwear tab. I have been wanting a pair of ‘yoga-mat’ flip flops since I tried on my friends pair last summer. They are like walking on fluffy-bunny clouds (they are that cushiony soft). I chose the Yoga Spree 2 from Sanuk in fuchsia. They come in several other colours from beige to red. They are apparently vegan and vegetarian but I haven’t had a chance to taste them yet. Sorry bad joke I know, but they do seem like they are very eco-responsible, the packaging was a bag made from taro root. They have a rubber sponge outsole which has amazing grip. I can attest to this as I HIKED in them, totally unintentionally. I took the boys to the playground to try them on different surfaces and for some reason we decided to take the wooded trail home. I was able to comfortably climb up a dusty slope without killing myself. And I think I looked pretty fancy doing it in my hot pink flip flops!
Now get this they were on sale so I had more money to spend! Tough problem right? I found a really pretty, bright cover up for the beach in the summer. The Body Glove Niki Coverup is on sale for under $20.00! I love the fit of it and the back scoops low which will look pretty over my two piece. It is a wee bit more sheer than I expected but fine for the beach and ice cream shop mid summer.
And lastly I STILL had money left to spend so I added a pair of goggles to my cart. We seem to lose goggles and need to grab them at the pool which is pricey at $10.00-$15.00 a time. These Antifog Cabo goggles were on sale for $5.55. Seriously! My son has worn them around the house for TWO WHOLE days. I would say he kind of looks Steam Punk retro cool if they weren’t bright blue and yellow, so really he just looks like an odd duck. An odd duck in fun goggles! We tried them at the pool and he thinks they are great. They are adult size but we have big-brainy heads in our family so they were just fine.
My parcel arrived quickly and was packed well but not wastefully. Everything I received was good quality and I appreciated that with the vast array of products and known brand names it was easy to find exactly what I wanted. The prices were less than I expected which was such a pleasant surprise, it meant for myself I got the opportunity to choose a few items to test out. I would use SwimOutlet.com again without hesitation.
