Labor Day Weekend

As we approach what feels like an "endless summer"  we're itching to cap off summer with a bang! Sure maybe our excuses to "dress up" have been limited but we're determined to make the most of the Labor Day weekend and who knows maybe kick some things off of our bucket list even if they are simple in being.  The long weekend calls for making the most of simplicity so whether at home or on a small weekend getaway we hope you'll consider adding some of the following ideas into your Labor Day celebrations.

 Last minute bucket list: simple pleasures, even if they aren't Pinterest-perfect!

1. Get on the water, whether by boat, kayak or canoe, or even your inflatable ring! Enjoy some vitamin D and exploring nearby sites.

2. Plan a picnic with friends or family. Don't just call in to-go, take the time to prep a basket with all the essentials and really unplug. 

3. Get messy! Make it a day with the family and add the hoopla you can: water guns, sprinklers, slip 'n slide in your own front yard. It's okay to be a "big kid" this weekend.

4. Schedule a Zoom happy hour with a distant friend and just add a chilled glass of your favorite summer water!

5. Sleep in, I know that sounds wild and crazy but even with all the chaos of the world right now somehow we still feel like we are going a mile a minute whether with work or being at home so we highly encourage you to give yourself the self-care you need.

6. Wear all the dresses and we mean it! You've been hoarding your pretty, feminine and flirty frocks right? Because you've had no where to go, no where to be... Well this is it ladies, switch it up all weekend long. Going to brunch put on a dress! Cooking at home with family? Turn up Alexa and throw on another dress....you catch our drift. Don't be afraid to afraid to mix up your wardrobe (even if it requires multiple changes).

7. Try a new cocktail! a "honey deuce" please - 1.5 oz Grey Goose vodka, 3 oz fresh lemonade, 1/2 oz. premium raspberry liqueur, 3 honeydew melon balls for garnish; combine all ingredients in a chilled Collins glass and stir to combine. Garnish with a skewer of frozen honeydew melon balls.

8. Play "tourist" in your own city. map out places to eat, visit, or shop that maybe you haven't seen yet. 

9. Stay up to watch the sunrise! counter intuitive to bucket list item #5, but so worth it...  

10. Surf the net, sift through fashion magazines, swipe through insta-stories and decide on 2 fashion trends that you commit to trying for fall/winter 2020. Document it for proof!

We're looking forward to all the things fall has to bring!

Have a safe & happy holiday weekend!
