Travel: Labor Day Packing Essentials

Travel: Labor Day Packing Essentials

Labor Day weekend is a long-awaited holiday for many reasons; it's a wrap-up to summer, a cause for family gatherings and an excuse for a weekend getaway. This period also serves as the beginning of our summer to fall wardrobe transition and requires mixing of seasonal pieces. The summer heat can still be present and managed with flowing silhouettes, and breezy nights are welcomed with lighter knits. Whether you are going to the lake house or a pool party, we have your weekender essentials.

Pieces to add to your packing list include a white button-up blouse, skinny jeans, neutral sandals, denim jacket, cotton maxi dress, sun hat, and colorful swimsuit and cover-up, just to name a few.

Transitioning from Summer to Fall

Transitioning from Summer to Fall

The transition from summer to fall can be long-awaited for lovers of cardigans and booties. However, this time of year also serves as a  last call for statement sandals and flowing sundresses. We like to view the period of time between these two seasons as an opportunity to combine your favorite seasonal pieces for looks that will transition with the changing weather.  

Keep your favorite summer dresses in play by pairing with them with opaque tights, close-toed shoes and a leather jacket or sleeveless trench.  This creates a versatile fall ensemble by playing with layers and textures. A well-made leather jacket is truly an essential investment piece, as it will be on repeat throughout fall and reintroduced in early spring.  

If you’re not quite ready to pack away your summer sandals try pairing them with your go-to skinny jeans and lightweight sweater for for those warm September nights! And with patio season still in full swing, don’t be afraid to layer in the evenings. Whether that means throwing a cotton cardigan over a favorite tank or getting major use out of your denim jacket.

We wish summer could last forever, but our boots, knits and cargo jackets await! Here are a few of our must-have transitional pieces:
