This time when Husband trotted off to get his sunscreen, I made sure that he bought two different bottles: SPF 300 for him and SPF 15 for me. I don't ever get really tan, but any time I get burnt, it turns to tan in a day or two. Husband, on the other hand, turns bright red after approximately 45 seconds in the sun and stays that way for weeks!
So that said, our vacation wear has quite different purposes. Husband selects items that will cover every square inch of himself in material thick enough to block the sun. I, on the other hand, try to wear a little as possible while still being somewhat decent so I can soak up as much sun as possible.

I fell in love with these Ann Taylor Loft shorts when I first saw them. They are so comfy and versatile! I sized up to a 14 so I can wear them lower on my waist and get a bit more length. I'm pretty comfortable with my legs but there is still such a thing as too short! After the first time I wore the blue pair, I went back to the store and got the khaki pair. I think the pattern is a huge reason why I like these shorts so much - it just makes the shorts so much more interesting than just a regular short.
Then a few weeks ago, much to my delight, the Heat Wave Shorts went on sale. I had tried on these shorts and was inspired to find other (cheaper) patterned shorts. When the real deal was suddenly an acceptable price, I pounced! I opted for the Green Motif rather than the Navy because I already had the Loft shorts in navy. I love the plaid and can't wait to start coordinating these shorts with more unexpected colors!
So while I'm scampering around in the sun wearing these shorts, Husband will be covered from head to toe in clothes, a hat, SPF 3,000,000 and under an umbrella. Whatever keeps him happy, I guess!
