End of Summer Bucket List

August is over and it’s time to get back to the real world *sigh*. But there’s still a few weeks left until it’s officially Fall. Here’s our end of the Summer bucket list (and, of course, what to wear!)

Not only is it your last chance, but late summer is often the best time to go to the beach! The water’s much warmer than earlier in the season and it’s often less crowded. Soak up the sun!

Sure, there are fun outdoor activities in Fall and Winter, but they’re not quite the same as Summer activities. So make sure to get in some last-minute camping, hiking, and BBQs!

We’re so sad that the Summer is coming to an end, but we’re pretty pumped for Fall fashion! But late August-early September can be tricky in terms of what to wear. We’re here to show you how you can keep some of your summer pieces alive while pairing them with some Fall-friendly accent pieces. Check out our favorite transition looks.

Your Ultimate Guide to Thrift Shopping

Who doesn’t love thrift shopping? You can find clothing that is unique and vintage, plus it could pair perfectly with any vintage-inspired shoes you may have lying around (ahem!)

  • Don’t walk in with a set plan. Thrift shopping is best done leisurely and with an open-mind. You probably won’t find exactly what you’re looking for, but you probably will find something that you absolutely love.
  • ALWAYS try everything on. It’s a rarity for a thrift store to offer refunds, so assume everything is final sale.
  • It’s okay to ask for help. Thrift stores can be confusing and difficult to navigate.
  • That being said, be low-maintenance. Employees don’t have time to cater to you hand-and-foot like they would at boutique stores. They have to sort through donations and update sales tags.
  • Get creative! Think of unique ways to repurpose the items you find. Hem or otherwise alter a dress that might be too matronly to wear today. Layer different items for a unique style.
