“I received complimentary product from Orvis for this review.
Spring has finally arrived and I am so happy! Springtime, along with daylight savings, means more time spent outdoors. Spring also means I can put away my winter clothes and enjoy my pretty spring clothes. Here in Albuquerque, the day can start out 50 degrees but by afternoon, it can be in the 70's. So dressing in layers is a good thing to do. How does one dress in layers and still look fashionable? I like to start with a cute pair of shorts, throw in a cute tank top and then layer with a light long sleeved shirt that can double as a jacket. Now I don't want the shirt screaming jacket, I want people to know it is a part of my outfit. My clothes not only have to look beautiful, but they also have to be functional with lots of pockets. I want to look and feel beautiful when I am enjoying the outdoors,yet also have pockets for all my many items that I carry. When I am outdoors I don't want to be carrying a purse as it gets in the way of my fun.
My kids have spring break this week so that means we will be enjoying our days checking out some new parks. Now when I go to parks with my kids, I do not sit on a bench. I have fun running around with them and playing on all the slides and swings. Yesterday when we went to the park it was early in the day so the weather was still cool out. I knew we would be at the park all afternoon so I want to be prepared for warmer weather. I wore my favorite pair of hiking shorts. These shorts not only allow me to run with my boys, but they have lots of pockets to hold my keys, phone, and money. I love that the pockets have snaps on them so nothing will fall out if I choose to hang upside down on the monkey bars. I really wanted to just wear a cute tank top with my shorts, but since it was still cool out I grabbed my favorite orchid Sunwashed Quarter-Zip sweatshirt. I am so glad I brought with this light shirt as although the day did warm up, the wind made it feel chilly. So I kept this comfy sweatshirt on and it did not hinder my play time with my boys.
The boys and I had a blast checking out this new park. There was so much to do at this park. I enjoyed all the slides and climbing things. My boys had a blast on all the things that went around in circles. My favorite part of this park was all the butterfly benches.
I bought my cute Sunwashed sweatshirt and hiking shorts at Orvis. These items are part of their new spring collection that includes fashionable clothes that allow you to enjoy the outdoors. I love the selection of active wash and go clothes. These clothes allow me to look great while enjoying the outdoors with my boys.
