Best of Summer Outfit Roundup + Labor Day Sales

August 31, 2018

HOW is it Labor Day weekend already? How? Why? I feel like the kids got out of school a minute ago. I have to say, though, we had a pretty great summer. I did have to work a lot, but the time I had off I really enjoyed my kids and tried to disconnect. And the times I was working, I am SO thrilled that my kids were at camps they really loved. Of course I was stressing about that since January…. because it’s not an easy ask to have someone watch 4 kids especially with their range of ages.

I read somewhere once that you get 18 summers with your kids (mine have already decided to “stay with the family” instead of getting married – apparently it’s an either/or situation), so I may luck out with more…. but even so I think this summer is one to look back on and smile. I’ve recently become obsessed with the “memories” feature in the photo section of my iPhone. Give it a go, choose some sappy song, and watch the highlight reel of the last 3 months. Good thing I only took 3K photos (ha!).

And with every end, there is ALWAYS something to look forward to. I mean, after summer, is there anything better than fall? I am SO ready. But first, here is a quick recap of some of the most loved looks of summer and a full list (with picks) of the Best Labor Day Weekend Sale at the bottom of this post!
