Fashion Week: Cabana Life

If you're headed to the beach or the pool, you MUST lather your lil one up with SPF. Did you know that the average tee only provides an SPF of 5? So if you think covering your tot up in a long-sleeve shirt is going to protect him, think again.

Melissa Papcock founded the Cabana Life line of SPF 50+ UV protection clothing after being treated for melanoma when she was in her twenties. Unable to find stylish sun-protective clothing, she used her fashion background to create a line of beach essentials inspired by Mediterranean summers. To see more of the line,


The spring collection, which hits stores like Giggle, Nordstrom and the company's website in late February, includes hats, cover-ups, tunics and pants for boys and girls. Cabana Life also had moms and expectant women in mind with their mommy and me matching tunics. The products range from $28 for tee-shirts to $44 for embroidered tunics.
