what to wear + labor day weekend

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine | ten | eleven

The fact that there are two days until September is unreal. Let's have a cliché moment and discuss how this summer has flown by. Let's take a moment to grieve at how I'm now real person, and there's no difference between summer and fall now; I work 5 days a week regardless.

If I have to see one more Snapchat from my younger college friends about how great Wake is, it's not going to be pretty. And it's only orientation weekend.

Good thing there are 8 weeks until homecoming! Let the diet and exercise get taken to a whole new level.

This weekend is the last hurrah of summer, and praise Jesus hallelujah that I have a four-day weekend. I dropped the ball and didn't make any plans, and I am totally okay with that. I have been going non-stop since I started work 7 weeks ago, with a normal workweek and then staying and going out in the city most weekends. I'm so excited to just relax and sleep and tan and workout and actually write some posts for this darling blog!

I can't wait to wear gym clothes and bikinis for 4 days.

However, for those of y'all who have more exciting social lives than I do (although I must say, I have gone from 0 to 100 if you think about how antisocial I was immediately after graduating. Now I actually interact with people!), you obviously need to wear some stylish outfits for all those fun and flirty instas.

Wear White If you believe in the unspoken rules of fashion, then this is your last weekend to wear white. Ha no thanks though, I’m going to ignore that suggestion. But still, you should wear white this weekend cause it’s going to be hella hot outside, plus it’s a nice way to show off your end of summer tan. This jumpsuit is fantastic and I know I’m going to be wearing a lot more of them (especially when paired with a leather jacket) into the fall season.

Rock the One Piece Obviously wear a bikini, but make it a goal to wear a ridiculous one piece at least one day this weekend.

Show your shoulders The off-the-shoulder trend is about to die with summer, so definitely make it a staple for at least one more weekend. LOVE this OTS lace top from Revolve. I’ve been avoiding webshopping because it’s way too tempting and I’d rather eat than buy something new right now (POST GRAD IS SO FUN RIGHT?), so I haven’t been on Revolve in the longest time. Guys that site always kills it. Just look there for everything you need.

Chokers for days I wear chokers almost every time I go out now (like every other basic bitch out there) because they're so simple yet so chic. Also cheap.

Rompers and Dresses What’s summer without another loud print from Lilly? I personally love their rompers, especially the silky ones. Also, as shown by the huge gold stamp of approval above, I am obsessed with this grey wrap dress. It's perfect for Labor Day festivities because its day-to-night wearability. I personally like wearing grey because it's really flattering with my hair/eye color and skin tone, so that's just an added bonus.

Bright tote You're going to be wearing strictly black, white, and grey from now until March, so break out the brightest bag you have to hold you over for the fall and winter seasons.

Strappy Sandals Opt for a nude color instead of black so it makes your tan pop! Steve Madden has some great options.

Have a great Tuesday! Shop this post below!
