Welcome back to a new week, friends! I hope your weekend was fun and relaxing. We got Mr. College moved in to his new house for the year… and I definitely had a few pangs and a large lump in my throat as I drove away.
We already have a few weekend visits planned, and I’m excited for college football and family visits. I’m hoping for at least one more family weekend at the lake before the cooler weather comes, too.
Days spent at the Sugar Shack were definitely the highlight of our Summer, and while we’re still making it ours, there are a few key pieces we grabbed right away. You know we get much of our outdoor gear at Backcountry, because they have the best selection, free 2-day shipping on US orders over $50, and unbeatable customer service.
They’re having their big Semi-Annual Sale, so much of our gear is on sale! You can get up to 50% off on some of the best outdoor brands like The North Face, Patagonia, Nike, and more! If you see something you love that isn’t on sale, you can save 15% off on your first order at Backcountry.com with code SUGARPLUM15 (exclusions apply).
And with so much time in and on the water, this rash guard has been great for keeping my chest and shoulders from too much sun.
Fit Tip: I size up in swim, including swim shirts and rash guards, for a more forgiving fit. I’m wearing a small.
Between his camping trips and mountain biking obsession, I think Mr. Sugarplum spends more time on Backcountry.com than I do! He loves their house-brand tees, for both design and softness.
This cute one-piece is actually reversible, so you get double the bang for your buck! It’s fully-lined, for a thick, full-coverage fit with lots of support through the torso.
I love the low back paired with the modest silhouette, and adjustable straps gives it a custom fit.
Fit Tip: I sized up one, wearing a small.
There’s not a lot of rules at the Sugar Shack, but life jackets are non-negotiable! They’ve actually been hard to come by this season, so I was thrilled to find some at Backcountry.
Even the pups get in on the safety game… we keep them in life jackets when we’re in the water, too. They are a sturdy fit with adjustable straps, with a handle on the back for easier lifting out of the water.
They are both great swimmers, but the life jacket gives me peace of mind! Especially since the water isn’t clear.
Plus, it fits perfect behind the seat (in the car or boat), so it’s great for transporting.
I’m always dreaming of our next trip to the Sugar Shack, and as much as I love Summers, I can hardly wait for our first Fall and Winter on the lake! I’m sure I’ll head straight to Backcountry for cozy pullovers.
Their big Summer Semi-Annual Sale is going strong, with up to 50% off items in every category from camping to skiing to water fun!
