Top 5 Must Have Items for a Lake Weekend

This past weekend, we celebrated our #GirlBoss Sloan’s birthday with a weekend at Grand Lake! With the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic and making so many changes to our lifestyles, it was much needed. I thought I would share our 5 “Must Haves” for a great lake weekend and some of those items you can pick up here at Gia Rose in Parsons!

1. Fun Sunglasses! 

    Block out the sun with some fun shades! Right now, Gia Rose is fully stocked with a variety of styles. Retro round lenses, cat eye style, and classic aviators are all solid lake choices! Shop Gia rose for the most rad, lake shades. One can never have any too many sunnies. We wear them year around for one, but to have on the lake is a must!!

2. Trendy Beach Towel 

     RUN, do not walk, to snag one of the last few of these round beach towels. Sadly, the leopard is sold out, but the feather design is still in stock. These are so perfect for boats or when you are hanging out by the dock. Your friend forgot their towel, lucky for them you have this big round towel to share with them! 

3. Snacks On Snacks 

     Who knew a sandwich could taste better on a boat? If you are going to be in the sun all day snacks are important: Sandwiches, Cheese-Its, Twizzlers, your favorite snack somehow tastes better when you are off land and on the water. Ps. Do not forget the water, we know the cold beverages can go down rather smooth while living the lake but water is key! 

4. Bikini (one piece - do you girl) 

    Grab your favorite suit and hit the water. Or if you’re like me, dip your toe in the water. Am I the only one who can’t enter water you can’t see through?! 

Here are some easy steps to wearing a swimsuit at the lake.

Step 1: Put on the suit

Step 2: Wear it.

We all want that “perfect” bikini body, but even if you aren’t what Instagram deems “perfect” your body is ready for that bikini or one piece (they are in style too!)

*Also don’t forget your sunscreen. SPF is important, protect your skin, girl.

5. Gal Pals! 

    A great group of friends is a girl’s best accessory! The best time at the lake is when memories are made with your favorite gals. Seeing the sun rise and the sun set with your gal pals filled with laughter, nothing beats it! 

 Lake season is still a happening. If you’re planning a weekend getaway make sure you're styling and have all the above necessities. Shop giarose.com to get a few of these must have lake weekends items. Remember, Labor Day is quickly approaching!
