Summer is fast approaching and that gets us excited about a few things including sunsets at the cabin and outdoor barbeques with our besties. We know that packing for a weekend at the lake or a summer vacation can be tricky so we've highlighted our favourite summer lake looks to help inspire you.
Being cozy at the lake is a necessity, but it doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with your athleisure and feel confident while relaxing. These YSL Denim Star Sneakers are perfect for lunch on the deck or wearing to your neighbours potluck. Pair your sneakers with denim and a white So Over It T-Shirt and you have the perfect, chill out summer outfit.
If you want to wear your trusted sweat suit and are still riding the ultra casual train, we suggest spicing it up with a statement sneaker that will give your understated outfit a fun summer twist. These floral high top sneakers from DSquared are great for summer and pair well with sweats, joggers, denim or your favourite maxi dress. No matter the outfit, these sneakers are going to add the perfect pop.
What about swimwear? A one-piece bathing suit with a denim skirt is the perfect dock outfit to relax in the sun. Our brand new MSGM bright pink bathing suit and our gorgeous patterned Zimmerman cut out one piece are just waiting for their lake debut! Contact us here if you're interested in either of these pieces.
Don’t forgot your sunnies! We have a huge selection of sunglasses right now in anticipation of those gorgeous rays. Our top brands include: Fendi, Celine and Chanel. As always, if you send us an email inquiry we can definitely find the perfect pair for you.
We know that the lake usually includes a couple of dinner parties or at least one formal event and if you are like us, you get extra excited about outfit planning for these occasions! This stunning Prada Dress hangs delicately on our dress rack right now and it couldn't be a better fit for your formal lake evening. With colourful details and cotton blend, this dress can be worn day to night and is guaranteed to make anyone feel like yachting royalty.
Although we absolutely love the idea of wearing our fav pair of nude Louboutins to the lake dinner party, docks and boats aren’t designed for 6" heels. We suggest pairing your dock outfit with a luxurious pair of sleek flats. Black Balenciaga Slingbacks are a summer must have. We styled these with a colourful mini dress, soft pink suit pants and a denim dress—all look like a fashion runway waiting to happen.
We're constantly drawing inspiration from France and the women there have mastered the craft of tying together a seemingly simple outfit with a statement piece. Simply adding a bright statement scarf to your outfit never disappoints and by incorporating your favourite summer scarf, you can make outfit planning a lot easier. Our Hermès scarf collection is growing by the day and we've been practicing different ways to wear scarves a lot lately. Our Hermès L'Art du Bojagi Cashmere Silk Shawl can be thrown over your shoulders on top of a simple black dress and just like the beautiful women of Paris, you too will feel like a master of outfit planning.
Although technically every hour at the lake is happy hour, one of our favourite pastimes is sitting down with friends and having that first cocktail of the evening while watching the sunset. A light tank blouse and denim is our go to for such occasions, but depending on your vibes, there are so many cute and easy choices for your happy hour. This silk Gucci blouse is going to make you feel immediately happy. Wear with this flattering pair of YSL denim and you'll feel totally comfortable for the whole evening.
When guests come over to the cabin, the slippers are retired back to the bedroom. Most people at the lake don’t practice a shoes-off policy, so our rule of thumb for appropriate guest or host shoes are slides. Our favourite slides are these metallic Robert Clergerie stunners. The silver metallic is made for summer and this brand is known for comfort, so you will not need to worry about those strenuous stairs up and down from the dock!
Don't forget the perfect summer tote bag to carry your sunscreen, sunglasses and latest beach read. We have been babysitting a very coveted Dior Houndstooth Book Tote that is waiting patiently for a lake house to live in.
The So Over It Studio is filled with elegant and timeless pieces ready to be shown off all summer. Whether you're hanging out on the dock, having your friends over for a BBQ or setting sail for the day, we can help you create the look. Book an in-store appointment today or inquire with us about video buying appointment. Either way, we hope your summer is filled with sun, sand and Sangiovese!
