The last getaway of the summer
The last getaway of the summer
This coming weekend is Labor Day, oftentimes the last opportunity to take advantage of “one last family getaway” before the children head back to school. Whether you are traveling by plane or by car to your destination, a wide variety of wardrobe choices are available so you look “awesome”! If you are traveling in the U.S., the weather in most areas is still very pleasant; the following clothing sets were created with this in mind.
The first set #903, includes comfy floral mid-rise pants by blackfive.com ($32) topped off with a light peach cami by riverisland.com ($32) and a cropped crochet tie front cardi by maurices.com ($13). A peach, ankle-strapped wedge sandal by solesociety.com ($35) is just the perfect footwear choice to compliment this casual outfit. A Stella and Dot Fillmore tote ($138) is large enough to carry any extra traveling necessities you may have, while at the same time, is very fashionable. A beautiful Armani Exchange square chain bracelet watch from nordstrom.com ($180), Stella and Dot hibiscus chandelier earrings ($44) and a pair of Ray-Ban Erika sunglasses from revolveclothing.com ($115) finish off this versatile and fun outfit.
If your Labor Day plans include a picnic or trip to the park, set #904 could “fit the bill “.
My focal piece of the outfit is the bright orange, tan and black floral cami from mandco.com ($18). Now it’s time to pick the remaining pieces for this very casual outfit. Tan Bermuda shorts by mango.com ($20) are a good pick as every closet should include this staple clothing item. In order to tie in the black from the top, I have included a pair of Anne Klein Nydia sandals from 6pm.com ($56), but if you want to make the outfit even more casual, a flat black sandal would work as well. Kenneth Cole’s orange large satchel (6pm.com, $90), Mixit orange shell drop earrings from JC Penney ($11), and an orange bangle (marcjacobs.com $29) completes the look.
If a fun day out with the family or friends is in your plans this weekend, then set #905 would be a perfect clothing choice. Start out with a brown v-neck cami (newlook.com, $5), topped off with Calypso St. Barth Greta hand crochet sweater vest (calypsostbarth.com, $50). A pair of boyfriend jeans by H&M ($31), are a clothing essential. The big Buddah Arden bag (6pm.com $50) is visually interesting and is large enough to hold all of your essentials. I chose Anne Klein Teague wedge sandals (amazon.com $27) because they pull in the colors of the cami, sweater vest and bag, and, let’s face it, they look HOT!! Anne Klein’s Swarovski Crystal accent multi-chain watch (amazon.com $95), Guess hanger fringe drop earrings (zappos.com $23) and Jimmy Choo London sunglasses (yoox.com $135) complete this fun and edgy look.
When you are creating your own outfit, start with a focal piece. My focal pieces often include my most colorful or visually interesting item, and then I continue adding pieces choosing from the colors from my initial piece. Have fun creating your outfits and don’t be afraid to “step outside your comfort zone”.
Until next time,
