Guys, Labor Day weekend is officially upon us.
I don’t know how it happened, but this year summer seemed to fly by even faster than it undoubtedly always does. I always get the end of summer scaries in a big way come LDW. BUT this year I have decided to outmaneuver that mind trap. On the east coast, September brings us some of the most beautiful weather of the year. And since they days of heading back to school mid August are long past for me, why is it that summer and all of its gloodness have to come screeching to a halt after Labor Day weekend?
The answer is, it doesn’t!
We can still wear summer clothes – we will just soon be layering our summer stripes with leather jackets and booties. And what’s so bad about that!? This retro shorts and off the shoulder top combo, for instance, would look equally as cute with a camo jacket draped over my shoulders. So don’t go packers bag away your summer favorites quite yet.
Ironically enough, I am writing this post while laying on the beach, on September 1st, wearing only a bikini and lots of sunscreen. So instead of getting sad that June, July and August flew by in a flash. And rather than saying and emotional so long to sweet summer, let’s just think of this weekend as hello September, you’re a real beauty.
