Here in Panajachel, we are all ready for summer! Despite the fact that we are going through rainy season right now, we always have high hopes for the weekend that we’ll be gifted with a day full of sunshine.
Those sunny days are most often spent soaking up the sun on Lake Atitlán, whether that means we’re out on a lancha exploring the lake or posted up at one of our favorite lakeside locations.
Wherever we are though, you can be sure that we have our Natural Dye Sol Tote with us, and that it’s packed to the brim with our favorite ethical fashion favorites for the day! When you don't know what kind of adventures the day will hold, it's best to pack your bag full to make sure you'll be ready to tackle any kind of adventure that you happen to stumble upon that day.
Here at Hiptipico, we fully embrace the phrase “community over competition” and want to help you do your part by shopping ethically from not only our company but also some of our other favorites as well! Whether you’re on Lake Atitlán like us or soaking up the sun from your neighborhood swimming pool, check out the contents of our summer tote!
First, wherever we go, we are sure to tuck in our Poppy Flower Tie Wrap Blouse by Symbology! It’s light, breezy, and perfect for the soaking up the sun here on the lake during the upcoming summer months! Combined with a pair of high-waisted jean shorts, this wrap has us feeling all the bohemian vibes.
After we put our wrap on, it's time to accessorize! We've carefully planned out some our accessories to match our outfit for the day, so we pull the Noonday CollectionAlvaro Bracelet Collection out and throw it on. The colorblocked glass beads create an instant arm party that's the perfect combination of fun and classy!
When it gets too sunny out, the next thing out of the beach tote are of course, our sunnies. But no pair of sunnies are thrown haphazardly into a beach tote! We keep ours in our Hiptipico sunny bag for safekeeping to make sure that our sunglasses kept protected from everything, whether it's the tuk tuk rumbling down the gravel road or from the turbulence of the lancha hitting the waves on Lake Atitlán.
When it’s time to jump in the lake for a quick swim, we pull out our swimsuit from NAJA packed and ready to go, perfect to slip on for a quick dip in the lake. It has perfect accent cutouts on the front to look trendy and stylish all while keeping us ready for any lake adventure that might come our way.
After the swim, we dry off with the towel we pull out of our bag and throw on our fun sandals from Deux Mains. These sandals are made from upcycled tire treads and we couldn't be more obsessed with the vibrant array of color options there are to chose from! These are the perfect shoes because not only are they perfect to wear around water but they also look super stylish and they're not your everyday pool flip flops.
Don't forget to toss in your sunscreen so that your day on the lake isn't topped off with a lobster red sunburn and you're all set! And of course, if the day is looking pretty sunny, we also want to bring a hat to keep the sun out of our eyes! We have the HiptipicoPlaya Wide Brim Hat with us to keep us cool and shaded.
We pull our phone and earbuds out of the bag to fill our ears with some fun jams and podcasts! What do you have in your summer bolsa? Let us know over on our Instagram or Facebook page what items are your must-haves!
