There's lots of pool lounging to be had this summer as the weather heats up. Maybe you'll head over to Wakefield and jump off the bridge with some friends, or perhaps you're going to the Ottawa Explosion pool party in Gatineau on Friday. Wherever you are, you're probably going to want to bring an extra layer to A) not get scorched by those intense UV Rays and B) not freeze up from a chilly breeze! Or maybe you'll eat a couple slices of pizza and want to tuck away that food baby - whatever the reason, we got you covered!

Lucky for you, we have some cute swim suits AND great cover up options! A lot of fun + bold tees have hit the shops recently and, inspired by this awesome window display Amber made for us, I thought I'd put together some cool combinations for you to rock by the pool.

These Mimi Hammer swimsuits came in funky bright colours which looked great with a lot of The Lost City's new collection. 

The Lost City Third Eye Hat - $60 available at all 3 shops and online.
Mimi Hammer Striped bottoms: $60, top $64, available at all 3 shops and online.

The Lost City t-shirts are a great oversized fit and make perfect cover ups! Tie it up in the back or at the side and voila, you can bring some mystical vibez to the beach. The red in the Ouija Cursor is the perfect match to the Relive baithing suit!

Charziie's crop tops and tshirts also make sweet companions for your swimwear. So many amazing colours, it was hard to pick which ones to photograph! I ended up picking the watermelon due to the crazy colour match with the swimsuit, but don't be afraid to mix and match them! Summer is all about having fun with bright colours, so don't hold back!

Banana T-shirt: $50 at Dalhousie. 
Watermelon Crop Tee: $50 at all 3 shops.

All sunnies are by AJ Morgan and are $19. Styles vary per shop but these guys are all available at Dal.

Now let's all look forward to the sunny weekend and plan some fashionable pool hopping!
