Between the hot weather, bustling patios, and endless supply of nearby lakes, summer is a great time to enjoy Winnipeg (and nearby cottage country!) with your girlfriends. Whether your crew prefers to hang out at the cabin, dance on a rooftop, or frolic around Corydon – there’s certainly no shortage of things to do this summer. We’ve put together three girls'-night-approved looks that will make your friends (and everyone around you) do a double-take.
Weekend at the Cabin
On a weekend trip to the cabin, comfort is everything. Since you already know you’re going to be wearing a t-shirt all weekend, go for one with a cute design. Loose cotton shorts are easy to slip in and out of when you feel like tanning or get dared to jump in the lake. We also recommend bringing a jean jacket for when it cools off at night. It probably goes without saying, but don’t forget a pair of playful sunnies!
All we want to do this summer is sip on frozen margaritas and catch up with our girlfriends. For your next patio date, consider going ultra-feminine with a floral dress, strappy sandals, and a cross-body purse. This soft, periwinkle dress is as summery as it gets, but still looks understated – like you didn’t try too hard. A classic straw sunhat will keep you cool and comfortable during peak sunshine hours.
Dancing on Osborne
Going out in Winnipeg sans parka is reason alone to celebrate. Enjoy the long summer evenings while you can by having some fun with bright colours and sexy details. A white peplum top and classic skinny jeans is a simple-yet-flattering combo that really comes to life with a few choice accessories. Up the ante with oversized hoop earrings, hot pink heels, and a killer hairstyle.
