We Have Got Shades! Sunglasses from One Step Ahead. Summer #Solutions

I'm doing a beach week! That means I'll be highlighting some of my favorite beach items from One Step Ahead, which is one of my most favorite companies in the world!! Today's post is of a simple but necessary item for the little ones: UV protective eyewear for outdoor play!


This is the gift for the grandbaby. Her party was outside, and with all the hustle and bustle of getting things ready and getting down to the pool where the party was going to be held, I figured Sun Smarties would be in order...and they were!

The Sun Smarties Rubber Frame Sunglasses come in 2 colors, and 3 sizes.

Sun Smarties are sold at One Step Ahead. You can get the Sun Smarties Rubber Frame Sunglasses for $9.95. They are comfortable, pliable and they block 100% of UV Rays! I like that they have a shatterproof lens too. You welcome that kind of consideration when you have a two-year-old...er, um, excuse me, THREE YEAR OLD, putting them on. 3-year-olds are active. ;)


When I got to the party, little miss was all decked out in her cute pink swimsuit, with cats, and some kitty ears on a headband (guess what the theme of the party was?). :) She was cute as could be, slathered with her sunscreen and...she didn't have on her sunglasses. ;)  


She did a little swim time in the pool with her daddy, then it was Grandma Rosey to the sunglasses rescue. I gave her the choice of the two pairs I brought along, even before she got to open her presents. ;)


Both pairs were from One Step Ahead. The first pair (the pair she selected) were the rubber frame glasses discussed at the beginning of this post, and worn in the picture above. She wore them the whole rest of the day, including when she blew out her candle, opened her presents, and ate her cake!! 
Sun Smartie Wrap Shades Come in 3 Colors, and 2 sizes.


The second pair were the Sun Smartie Wrap Shades. These wrap shades also block 100% of UV rays, and they cost $12.95. The pinch proof frame is so sturdy it is approved for prescription lenses if you need them. The back of these softly wrap and secure around your head, almost like goggles, to keep them firmly and comfortably in place. You can get them in 3 different colors, and 2 different sizes.


The wrap around glasses went to my niece. These two girls are not only cousins, they are also peas in a pod...and now they both have One Step Sunglasses to protect their eyes too. I highly recommend them, they're sturdy, effective, and cute!

You can learn more about these shades by visiting the One Step Ahead website. You can also follow on Facebook and/or Twitter.

It's the perfect sunglasses for the young ladies this summer! I like that there's a strap at the back so they won't lose it once they get busy playing.
