How to Soak in the Last Month of Summer

Who else is ready for sweaters and boots? I know I am! But, with a month of summer left, we better take advantage of the hot temps and those warm summer nights! Keep scrolling to see how the CINCteam and I are planning to really soak up the last month of summer:



1. Spend as Much Time Outside As Possible 

With the sun setting later, and the temperature still nice and warm- spend as much time outside as possible! Stay a little longer at the pool, spend all day at the beach, have a picnic, get lost reading a book outside, have everyone over for a BBQ- just relish being outside and the fact that the sun doesnt set until later! The second it gets colder and the time changes, the last thing you’ll be wanting to do is be outside, so make sure you take advantage of it while you can!

2. End of Summer Sales

Gotta love those sales! Stock up on summer basics and pieces you can transition into cooler weather! Think denim, dresses, body suits, and darker florals!  Im currently loving this ruffle topcant get enough of this after sun mist which is an additional 25% off right now, and these Proenza slidesDo you guys want to see a post about transitioning summer pieces into fall? Let me know in the comments section below!

3. Last Minute Weekend Getaway

Whether it’s a staycation or a full on vaycay, take the time to get away even if its just for the weekend! Nothing like stepping out of the norm to totally refresh yourself, relax and get a creative refresh. Truly take advantage of any leftover vacation days, airline miles, and get out there! As soon as things start picking up for the holidays, you’ll thank me.

4. Eat Foods You Can’t Eat in the Winter

From seasonal fruits and vegetables, to warm weather treats like ice-cream, fro-yo or milkshakes, take advantage of foods you won’t be able to eat in the winter! So get your fill of bell peppers, beets, cucumbers, zucchini (maybe make some Zoodles?), plums, cherries, passion fruit, and peaches! You get the idea!

5. Watch the Sunset 

Finally, take some time to just chill and watch the sunset, or the sunrise if you can get up early enough! From a roof, a balcony, the beach- however, and wherever you can get there. Take the time to reflect and meditate and marvel at the beauty of Mother Nature.

Though I absolutely CAN’T WAIT for Fall, I know that the second it gets cold, I’ll be wishing for warmth again. If you’re like me, and I bet you are- be sure to soak up the rest of summer!

    Lovely post; I walk quite a bit in the sun and do harm to my skin; that darken ashen forehead that I can’t rid of; liken to an omen sign really. No matter, enjoy the remains of summer and thank you.
