Today's blog feature will be a little different. Since we approaching Summer we are going to talk swimwear, and of course feature some more amazing moms.
Our mama feature today is non other than the beautiful Alexis.
She rocked her swimwear looks, and was effortless in showing off all these great products.
Alexis became a mom in 2009, and has four munchkins. Courtland-7, Cambria-5, Capri-2, Caia-1. For her motherhood is, "a beautiful journey full of sleepless nights, days filled with temper tantrum's, goldfish crackers, dance parities, starbucks dates, dress up, make believe, snuggles and of course endless love. It's a wonderful adventure I wish could slow down just a tad, and it's something I wouldn't trade for the world. Motherhood is what's makes me who I am, and I learn from it everyday!"
Alexis's review of the products she modeled. "I absolutely loved the coverage and shape of the SwimZip jacket, helping hide that mama bod while still feeling beautiful and trendy. The breathable, flexible material made it a breeze to wear on hot days. The awesome sunglasses were definitely a stepped out of my comfort, but once I put them on it was love. They are such a fun way to spice up a day at the beach, quick trip to Starbucks, any outfit really!
I loved how big and spacious that awesome clutch was. It was so versatile for us mamas you could easily throw some goldfish crackers, diapers and wipes in there's toss it in the diaper bag away you go. Or it would make a great accessory for a mamas night out! Either way the beautiful high quality material made it a mama must have! As a mama 3 girls those earrings and head band were amazing. My girls are always wanting to be just like mommy and wanting to steal my jewelry & "hair pretties" and with the darling clip on earrings and funky fun head wrap they can be just like mama no problem!"
Alexis was joined by the gorgeous Nikosha to model these great swimwear pieces and accessories. Lets breakdown what they are wearing.

The no-pinch zipper flap, tagless neck, zipper garage around the neck, and flat-lock stitching make wearing the swimwear comfy. SwimZip's material is chlorine resistant too.
"Being diagnosed with skin cancer at just 26 years of age changed my life. It was scary, awful, and traumatic. (Kleenex made a small fortune wiping away my tears for a few weeks!) After getting over the self-pity, I realized that I had actually been presented with was an opportunity to do something meaningful with my life. I enjoyed working in the corporate world, but here was a chance to help others avoid my fate – and maybe even save lives. With the conviction that comes from knowing without a doubt that you are doing something right, I dove headfirst into the world of UPF sun protective clothing … and thus SwimZip was born.
SwimZip is the UPF 50+ clothing brand people trust to keep themselves and their children sun safe. We feature our signature full zipper down the front of our rash guard shirts – they are soooo easy to put on and take off! Our swimsuits, swimwear, bathing suits and accessories are made with the best materials to our unmatched standards. SwimZip styles are one-of-a-kind, and we include a number of innovative design features. Others have tried to copy our ideas, but our unparalleled devotion and innovation leads to the highest quality products that simply cannot be beat.
As a skin cancer victim, I know the harsh reality of not getting enough sun protection. As a Mom, I know I do not want my children suffering the same fate. SwimZip is a lot more than just a sun protective clothing company … SwimZip is a passion."
