A Lustrous Lake Ensemble
Memorial Day: the only Monday in the month of May Americans eagerly anticipate. No work, no stress, just fun. So what better way to kick off the beginning of summer with a trip to the lake? The long, celebratory weekend starts the first of many festive cookouts, boat parties and of course summer tan sessions. Featured is a list of what necessities should be included in your duffle bag for your exciting getaway.
Swimsuit: This seersucker, halter-top is a great summer staple. Its slimming design flatters all body types. You can find this suit in different styles, as well. $110, J. Crew
Cover up: This swimsuit cover up is light, bouncy, and eye-catching. The sheer, sea foam color gives a chic, fun feeling. This unique piece of clothing would complete any lake day outfit. $88, Anthropologie
Beach/Pool Bag: Featured is the Madewell Corsica Straw beach tote that is made of sturdy abaca, which comes from banana stalks. This durable tote is great for carrying near water, because the airy weave allows for quick dry time if wet. $59, Madewell
Towel: This burnt orange, printed beach towel is great for pool chairs, lake docks, and sandy shores. Its medallion prints create a vibrant, sunny kaleidoscope image. $14.99, Bed Bath & Beyond
Sunscreen: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen is a favorite of mine. Most sunscreens will clog your pores, but this sunscreen does not. The SPF 30 sun protectant leaves a matte finish, and it is great on all parts of the body. $7.59, Target
