Swimwear and Lake Essentials for the Family

This post is sponsored by ShopStyle & Backcountry. I selected all of the items personally & all opinions are my own.

If you spend any amount of time in the water during the summer then you know that quality swimwear, durable clothing and  sturdy sandals are a must! A few trips to the lake, a few rides on the tub and a few tosses in the wash and any swimsuit that isn’t well made will be unraveling at the seams. The same goes for coverups, tees and sandals. The lake, pool & beach can really do a number on a pair of sandals and don’t even get me started on how rough my kids can be in their summer apparel. As a family who spends every second possible on the water in the summers, I know the importance of having great gear and Backcountry carries everything I need for the entire family!

Backcountry is undoubtable my number one go-to for all things outdoors, especially in the fall and winter. Nobody, and I mean nobody, has a better selection of clothing and gear for all of your outdoor needs. Last year as I was searching for a few spring pieces from Backcountry, I noticed that they have an unbelievable swim selection and summer lifestyle apparel as well. Not only do they carry one of my favorite brands, Maaji, but also several other lines from my favorite swimsuits like LSpace, Boys & Arrows & Seafolly. See all of their women’s swimwear here.

One reason I really love Backcountry is because I can place one order that covers the entire family and all the accessories we need, even towels, coolers, tumblers, hats and sunglasses. Zach pretty much lives in Patagonia swim trunks, Backcountry tops (his favorites are this one and this one) and Reef Sandals during the summer and all of them come from Backcountry. They even carry everything needed for an array of water sports included a ton of gear for paddleboarding.

In addition to their expansive selection and free 2-day shipping on all US orders over $50, their customer service is next level! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you can call their customer service number, email or chat them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and they will answer all your questions. Seriously you should try it sometime! I was skeptical the first time I decided to call and ask an opinion on a jacket and low and behold a real human picked up and answered all my questions. Or should I say a super-human since their “gearheads” are former athletes, outdoor guides and even Olympians.
