Summer is a few weeks away and Memorial Day kicks off those glorious months of sunshine. To help you get ready for the summer rush, a few of our Axl’s insiders selected their top Memorial Weekend picks. Whether you are headed to the beach, huddled around the campfire or taking in some rays poolside we hope you celebrate the holiday in style.
Lisa, Marketing: An escape to the sand and sun
I love the beach and an escape to the ocean sounds like the perfect way to celebrate Memorial Day. The T2Love Raw Tank Dress is lightweight and flows nicely. It’s great as a cover-up for the beach. It comes in multiple colors so you can find one to match with any swimsuit. I like the Roxy Shirred Bandeau One Piece Swimsuit because it has a great classic Roxy print with hearts and logo. The style is nice because you can tie it as a halter or in a bow in the front since the top has a bandeau fit. Every kid needs a great, durable and lightweight beach hat. I like this Columbia Wavebreaker Bucket Hat for all of those reasons as well as the fact that this one is reversible. It is a vibrant hibiscus purple print on one side and white on the opposite side.
Kyle, Operations: Time for some fresh mountain air
The smell of pine trees and a campfire get me excited for summer. I’ve already packed my tent in the car for the weekend. This the ultimate camping hoodie for those weekend camp trips with the family. I love the vintage look of the Volcom Sprocket Lined Hoodie. With it being a little insulated and lined with thin fleece on the inside, this baby will keep you nice and toasty. The North Face has been making amazing outdoor products for many years. The Oso Hoodie is insanely soft and comfortable for all occasions. With two big pockets on the front to collect rocks for skipping across the lake, you just can’t lose. Carhartt makes such good stuff. It doesn’t rip. It’s sturdy and you still look good. The Carhartt Washed Dungaree Pants are great for the dirt and rough conditions of being outdoors. Plus, they keep you pretty warm.
Taylar, Customer Service: The park or the pool, I choose both
Sometimes just hanging out in your own backyard is the perfect weekend. This Memorial Day you’ll find me laying in the sun poolside or on a blanket in the park. I’m a total animal lover, but allergic to everything that walks the planet. I over compensate for my physical rejection of the animal kingdom through my taste in clothing. These totally off the wall, nature inspired pieces are great for summer outings. I especially love this fun Neff Duck Cap. The DC Full Zip Hoodies are pretty rad too. They add an extra style element that the classic hoodie lacks. I of course love this hoodie for the great animal face on the front. Okay, so I saw the preview of Jaws and couldn’t get in the water for a few weeks. Somehow the DC Lunch Meat Boardshorts have the opposite effect on me. I love them. Your kid will be the stand out at the pool even if he still hasn’t mastered the diving board.
