Easy Outfits | A Weekend at the Lake

I’m not sure about you but our family is trying to squeeze the last few precious drops out of summer before it’s over.  So we’ll be spending as much time as possible at the lake over the next couple of weekends.

Here are some of my outfit essentials when packing for a weekend at the lake.
1.   This bateau top in gray and white will be doing double duty as one of your fall favorites too.

2.  A floppy wide brim hat is a must have for late summer sun.

3.  This canvas tote is positively perfect for stashing all of your essentials and it’s ON SALE.

4.  These ship shape earrings are a steal and a great wearable stud for everyday.

5.  Slouchy boyfriend shorts define relaxed weekend style.

6.  These flip flops have been my favorite pair of the summer.  The ivory color goes with everything.

7.  A leopard iPhone case adds a dash of animal to every outfit.

  • Those shorts are perfection! They are sold out in my size on line but we are shopping this weekend, so I hope I find them!! And they also have that tote in denim, which will easily transition to fall! I love this look – perfect for me! Susan
