Summer always seems like a wonderful time to enjoy lakes and mountain adventures. If you haven’t been reading, we just returned from a trip to South Lake Tahoe, California so I’ve based this packing list on our personal experience there. In all honesty, this could really work for any mountainous or lake trip. We spent some time at the beach and some time doing some fun hikes so we didn’t need any serious gear.

  1. I love Lake Tahoe! I have a good friend who lives there. I haven’t visited in years, but I need to go back. I think that scalloped edge bikini is the cutest!!

  2. I loved your outfit choices. I have been to LA, San Francisco (was born there) Sacramento, Stockton, San Diego but never been to Lake Tahoe it looks so beautiful! I love that wide brim hat!

  3. i LOVE that birkenstocks are a thing again. I wore the heck out of them when I was growing up and I still think they’re cute and comfy

  4. These are all great outfits! For something like this, I definitely think it’s a great idea to bring pieces of clothing that you can use in a couple different items, if you have the option of washing them somehow, of course.

  5. I love that floating pretzel, lol! I also have a pair of cute stud earrings I use for travel. Easy to keep track of and look great with everything. 🙂

  6. Great choices and outfits! I bet you guys were one of the more stylish visitors to the lake. 🙂 (I love going up there as well.) I love the pretzel – one of my friends has one, and it’s her fav photo prop. The scalloped swimsuit is super-cute too!
