I spent an amazing weekend at the lake. It was much needed to relax, unwind, and have a great time with close friends. I'm sure I'll be headed to the lake again soon and I'll know exactly what to bring next time! If you're headed to the lake or beach, take a look at my must-have packing list... I've linked all products below so you can check them out easily!

protect your face! 

being out on a boat all day is so fun but can really take a toll on your skin. Make sure you bring a hat and a good SPF. I brought this brand new nellamoon trucker hat which is available on our site! You can find my favorite SPF below


you'll need a few swimsuits to change in and out of. I recommend taking cheaper bathing suits because lake water is nasty. I've linked a few of my amazon favorites below! 


when the sun reflects off of the water, it can leave your eyes feeling exposed and sensitive. Make sure to bring some sunglasses to protect your eyes! I recommend taking a pair that won't cause heartbreak when you lose them in the water 


I've linked a few of my favorite reusable water bottles! Staying hydrated while in the sun is so important! 

 simple outfit staples

I recommend bringing a pair of jean shorts to throw over your bathing suit and a simple tank. I'll link my favorites below! I also throw on a cover-up that is pictured above. I'll link it below, it's so affordable and darling on!

If you're headed to the lake, make sure to pack these essentials! 

I've also linked a few of my favorite floats, too! It's so nice to just float on the water with good friends!

Cheers to fun weekends,
