4 Summer Essentials for Outdoor Lovers

This post is in partnership with BabbleBoxx.com. Thank you for supporting brands that make Happily Inspired possible! xx

Toddler life means adventure outdoors! Summertime is in full swing and we’re soaking up (literally and figuratively) every single second. Chicagoans have learned to embrace the hot ones because we know {all too well} what a windchill of negative 40 feels like! We just came back from an amazing vacation up north (Northern Michigan) and it was one for the books. Now that Harlow’s almost two, she’s capable of so much more compared to last year. A lot of pool days, biking, nature walks, etc. It was exactly what my family needed, and I highly encourage a road trip to the country life. There’s nothing quite like that fresh air — feeling refreshed and grateful for the time away.

I wanted to quickly share 4 outdoor essentials that my family enjoyed while away! The perfect companion for your next adventure with the fam!


Who doesn’t love Hanes? Classic, buttery soft and the perfect cozy top for chasing around busy toddlers! The Hanes Ultimate Xtemp tees keeps a controlled ‘cool’ so you’re not overheating. I’m also a fan of the odor control technology because again — toddler life is a workout! I love how affordable they are, and I sleep in them! Oversized for the win!


We swim non stop in the summertime. This shampoo is a game changer, and the best part? It really works. Over 400 5-star reviews, and it even smells good! If you’re looking for a product that removes chlorine — this is your best bet. The moisturizing formula is safe to use after each swim so it keeps hair healthy as can be. Adios pool hair! Find where to buy here.


First aid kit is an absolute must! We actually keep ours in the car so it’s always handy. Me4kidz is pediatrician approved, award winning and latex free. This kit features 100 items that will keep you prepared for basic first aid needs. Even includes organized pods that you can easily size down for on-the-go. me4kidz also partners with non-profit organizations to provide consistent work for those of disabilities. Each kit is put together with love and extra care. Love that they’re helping the community and the environment. I always choose to support brands that give back!

Want to impress your littles? Bring out a flashlight! Multi-functional (we’ve had so many storms with power outages, so these will most definitely come in handy moving forward!) and kids go crazy for em. The keychain flashlight has a beam of 50 yards — that’s half a football field. It will run nonstop for almost 2 hours on just 1 AAA battery. Love that you can pick out the colors you want to match your style. The Mini Maglite® flashlight is the most iconic flashlight in the world. A powerful beam that can travel almost 2 football fields. Sleek in design (isn’t the gold so cute?) and easy enough to fit in your pocket, purse or car compartment. Whether you’re looking to tell spooky stories while on vacation, or camping — these are perfect!
