Is there anything better than an impromptu weekend getaway? Hardly. Unfortunately, that's a near impossibility this summer. But if I could align the stars for a weekend respite, I know where I'd go (Palm Springs) and what I'd pack (plenty of poolside worthy coverups). A lot of us are thinking of fall because the kids are back to school (whatever that looks like) and/or we're over this isolated summer. But I hesitate to skip over this last hurrah of the season. It's important to live in the moment - particularly now - and be mindful of what we have, rather than longing for what's next. I find that to be no more true than when it comes to our closets. Rather than pining
away for blazers and boots, let's savor the end of season sales. Yes, SALES! Many of the season's best sales will drop in August instead of their usual July. And they'll be offering up all the summer trends. Let's also relish in end of summer dressing for the trips we'll take (perhaps only to the backyard) or the ones we're dreaming of (quiet, beach bungalow, anyone?). Languish in sunset hues of orange, red, and pink; or lolly in nautical blues and crisp whites. Hit the highway in on-trend prairie dresses or lightweight linen. Stay close to home in versatile shirt dresses. Whether at home or in the car, embrace embellished slides that can be set aside when you're ready to be grounded. However you get away for these final weeks of summer, you can't go wrong. But if you need help, I'm always around, of course. Together we'll uncover the perfect outfit that will inspire your idyllic summer getaway - whether it's miles or mere steps away.
