Duluth Trading Company #SummerSolved

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.

I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am that we are finally seeing warmer temperatures here in Ohio! We have actually had the chance to get outside and start working in our yard which we are so excited about. Once the temperatures start to rise, you will rarely find us cooped up inside. Instead we can be found working in the garden, prettying up the yard, at baseball games or hosting backyard BBQ's! We have a wonderful backyard and it is going to take a lot of work to keep it beautiful this Spring and Summer so the entire family helps out, even our little guy! 


Often times you will find me multi-tasking. It is not uncommon for me to be working out in the yard and then jumping in the mini van and heading out to a baseball game. I love versatile clothes that I can wear both around the house and on the go so I was so excited to learn about Duluth Trading! Duluth Trading is a company that I am familiar with for men's clothing but I had no idea that they had a great line of products for women as well. I was able to browse their site and pick out some really great pieces that I am going to really enjoy this Spring/Summer!

The first item I chose was the Longtail No Sweat scoop Neck T-Shirt. A jersey blend of comfy cotton and CoolMax polyester with antimicrobial and moisture-wicking performance, this shirt is perfect while I am working in the garden or hosting a barbecue.  There are many things I love about this shirt but the feature I love best is that it is 2" longer than traditional t-shirts for extra coverage and modesty while working. While I am bent over in my flower beds, the last thing I want is to show off a little more than I should to my neighbors. This shirt also offers UPF 40+ sun protection which is very important to me as my family has a history of skin cancer. I enjoy being out in the sun but I want to make sure I am safe too. The other thing I loved is that this shirt has a pocket with a buttonhole inside where I can keep my headphones, credit cards, cash and even my iPod! I love listening to music while I am working outside and I was so excited when I found this pocket! 

The next item I received was the Quick Dry Skort. First of all, I love the versatility of this skort. I can wear it
in the garden, to a baseball game and everywhere in between. It is super comfy and it has 6 pockets which I love. It is UPF 50+ to help protect against the sun and I love the lightweight fabric. I really love the length of this skort. There is a time and place for a mini and working in my garden or climbing up bleacher steps is not the time. This skort goes almost to my knees which I love. I can work comfortably down on the ground and again, I am not worried about showing off too much skin.

The final product I chose was the Crusher Sun Hat and oh how I love this hat! It has a mesh-sided crown which breathes and ventilates. It is also wrinkle resistant with a flexible brim and crown which is also nice. I love wearing this outside when I am working in the yard because it never fails. When I don't wear a hat, my neck and face always get sunburned. This hat does a great job of protecting me from the sun. I chose the Sienna color which is a great color for Summer! 
I am so super excited to browse the rest of their site and see what other great products I can find for this Summer! We have so many activities going on and I would love to have a couple more of these versatile outfits that I can wear on the go and in my backyard. I would love to have their utility vest for when I am working outside and a couple of hoodies for the cooler evenings. They also have some garden shoes that I NEED! I am constantly ruining good shoes working outside and these waterproof Bogs they sell are both functional and stylish. I love to run too so I was stoked to check out their knit pants and zip tops. I typically run early in the morning or late in the evenings when it is a little on the cooler side and these would be great!
