Posted on August 31 2018
Labour day weekend is the perfect time to give summer its final send-off. So whether you’re going on a mini trip or having friends over in your backyard in order to take advantage of the last days of heat, you’re going to need a few essentials to enjoy it fully. These 6 labour day weekend essentials are perfect for spending your final summer days in comfort and style.
Swimsuit, Cover up, and Towel
We all know summer’s all about being on the beach or by the poolside in your favourite swimsuit. You don’t want to forgo bringing your bathing suit along during the last weekend of the summer, after all! So get your tan on with this awesome swimsuit reversible top with the bottoms to match. It’s like having two pairs instead of one!
And of course, if you plan on being in your bathing suit, you shouldn’t forget to bring your cover-up. After a long day of being out in the sun, no one wants to feel stuffy in their regular clothing. That’s why this airy viscose poncho from H&M is the perfect choice for you! And when it comes to towels, nothing soaks up water and dries as fast as a microfiber towel. The best part about these towels is that the sand will never stick to them! Make sure your towel stays put on your long chair with these adorable turtle towel clips!
Even though we’re nearing the end of the summer, you’ll still want to protect yourself against harmful UV rays. However, even though you want to protect your skin from the sun, you might still want to get as much tanning in as possible. That’s why Hawaiian Tropic’s Tanning Lotion is the perfect choice! Not only does is protect you against harmful UV rays, but it will also give you an amazing glowing tan and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, so you won’t have to worry about constantly reapplying after taking a dip in the ocean or pool!
Labour day weekend is the perfect time for you to have one last summer bash in your backyard by the poolside. What better way to entertain your guests with some of your all-time favourite tunes? For that, you’ll need a speaker. Luckily, we have just the right one for you. Don’t let the size of this gadget fool you! It may be compact, but it delivers ample sound. Available in pink or black, the Anker SoundCore mini connects via bluetooth and is compatible with both Apple and Android devices.
Labour day weekend means that fall is just around the corner. Luckily, the summer heat is usually present during the day, but temperatures tend to drop at night. So what’s the perfect way to deal with this transitional stage? An outfit that matches it, of course! This cute Geo Dot Cami dress from Forever 21 is perfect to wear during the warm daytime. Once it starts getting cold outside, break out your favourite jean jacket to warm you up! Pair this look with a nice pair of slip-on shoes, and you’ll be rocking your labour day weekend!
Rosé or other
Summer is definitely the season for rosé. But chances are that if you’ve been sipping on rosé all summer long, you might actually be a little sick of it. If that’s the case, what should you sip on while lounging in your backyard for the final days of summer? You might want to consider making yourself a refreshing gin and tonic! For this, we recommend Langley’s No.8 Distilled London Dry Gin, Fever-Tree Tonic water, and some lime.
