“Rash Guard” by Luke Bryan

We are in the midst of a serious heat wave, people! The Times released a whole article honing in on comparable heat waves in New York History: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/07/nyregion/new-york-today-the-heat-is-here-heat-wave.html?_r=0. But before you head to a more reputable source of information, not that I’m not super knowledgeable, all about the facts and always accurate (…), listen up! Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 4.41.54 PM.png

According to the sunburn map, my new favorite website for tanning detes, the current UV index in Manhattan is 10. That is very, very high. Anything above 11 is regarded as an extreme UV index. With that in mind, we’ve all got to be super careful about sunburns.

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 4.42.58 PM.pngSunburns are one of the big summer bummers– which is something I say with great reluctance, because even when I have a sunburn, I can’t help but think: “THE SUN!” I. Despise. Winter. As much as holiday cheer fills me with giddiness, I’d rather spend a day soaked in aloe than a minute in the cold.
Still, I’m not delusional, and I totally understand how detrimental the sun is to skin. If anyone recalls my stitches from earlier this year, that little medical procedure was the result of a tough run in with the sun. FromScreen Shot 2016-07-07 at 4.42.02 PM.png here on out, I have decided to take extra precautions when spending a day out on the water. What I mean is: whenever I’m out on a boat, or hanging in the ocean for longer than is necessary to show off my new bathing suit, I am putting on a rash guard. You heard me right. I am the 12-year-old being punished by his mother for burning his cheeks for the third time in a month! I am the 32-year-old new mother that suddenly realizes her mortality, and decides to start protecting her skin! (Could this be a politician’s stump speech? I think maybe.)

Anyway, I’ve picked out a handful of cute rash guards from a variety of different brands, including: J. Crew, Tory Burch, Perfect Moment, Flagpole Swim and more. For once, a little shopping will actually do ya good.
