Farewell Summer + $600 Giveaway!

Happy Humpday everyone!

I love it that we are already to the middle of the week, I can smell the weekend! It always makes it easier when you get a Monday off, I hope everyone had a spectacular and restful Labor Day weekend! Today I am saying farewell to Summer AND Maria and I are giving one lucky fashionista the chance to win a $600 giveaway! #bestdayever

I spent my Labor Day weekend at my parents’ lake house in Michigan and the weather was BEAUTIFUL. I also turned 30 years old on Sunday (eek!) and when my birthday falls on the long weekend I like to pretend the extra day off is specifically for me! Hehe Life update: it may be because I just got back from Disney, but I still don’t feel like an adult now that I’m 30…

Labor Day weekend at the lake is the unofficial end to summer and usually it’s the weekend when everyone takes their boat out of the water and closes up their house or cabin if they don’t live there year-round.

Generally speaking, nobody likes to say farewell to Summer, but I have to say that I am so excited for Fall! And while I will definitely miss easy breezy outfits like this romper-maxi, Fall fashion is by far my favorite!! I dream of scarves and layers and boots, chunky sweaters and breaking open my extensive jacket/coat collection each year! It is also my favorite season to shop for- there is so much good stuff!!!

So for this post, before we officially switch to Fall, I wanted to reminisce a little on one of my favorite summer outfits of 2017, shot by the ever so talented Ali Stone.

This romper-maxi and beach bag from Target gave me that effortless chic feel and were the dynamic duo of my summertime. Put the two with some nude shoes and my Becky shades from Diff and I was ready to go!

Because we love to prep our own wardrobes for Fall, Maria and I wanted to give someone else the opportunity to go on a Fall clothing shopping spree at Nordstrom! Just keep scrolling for details on how to enter the $600 giveaway!! Consider it our farewell to Summer gift to you!
