I found my vest that I used in my trip to Peru back in 1996. Amber had used it for a Sadie Hawkins “Going Fishing” theme party, and so I’m ripping out the sewing I did, to make it fit her. Lots of neat pockets
Here are the links to the clothing items that I bought here recently. Some good sales going on, with the upf sunscreen clothing.
Lands End Sun Life SunScreen Pant I bought a Field Khaki and Vintage Olive. I may return it, but I need to see how they wash up.
Lands End Sun Life SunScreen Shirt. I bought two white and a pink. I don’t really like the topstitching on the shirts, so who knows on this one.
REI Cozumel Organic Tops. V Neck, UPF 50 +. I bought the Salmonberry, a White and a Blacken Pine. They are super long, past the waist, which is nice. I may go back and buy the Peruvian Blue and Tuscan Violet. I could also wear these as work out tops. These are nice.
REI Sahara Convertible Pants. I found out by looking at the website that these come in Tall. And I had specifically asked the lady on the phone, did these come in Tall. Nope,,,,Yup! Anyway they are long enough for me, I do need to wear a belt, or take in the seam on the side or something. I bought the Raffia color and they are UPF 50 +.
REI Sahara Shirt Long Sleeved. Nice and light weight, bought the Azul color, SPF 30, vents on the side of the shirt. Hopefully, this will keep me sun protected and cool. Mongolia will really be the test for that!
I also purchased a long sleeve shirt from Backcountry.com, as it would round out a $50 purchase, with free shipping. In a green color. Hopefully, this will be very nice to use too.
