Enjoying the Last Few Weeks of Summer

Posted by Danielle on 25th Jul 2019

If you live in Utah we hope you had a happy Pioneer Day filled with too many funnel cakes, a parade, at least one rodeo show and most importantly time spent with family and friends. We know at My Sister’s Closet we had too much fun meeting all you cute ladies at both Draper Days and Fiesta Days. Plus we hope you snagged our new exclusive Lena & Lou dress as well as the other dresses we had on sale.

After Pioneer Day and Fiesta Days end I can’t help but get a little sad thinking that another summer is about to come to an end. So this week we are giving you all the ideas to make sure this is a summer that you won’t forget!

Pool Days

Before you know it, pool days will have come to an end and you’ll be left wishing you had more time to swim or layout by the pool. Going to the pool is a perfect summer activity, you can head to your local pool after you get off work or spend the entire day there. Either way you won’t regret the time spent at the pool.

When it comes to pool days you can’t go wrong with a cute swimmer, we suggest a Kortni Jeane style. We carry these at both of our locations and promise you won’t regret it. They are made to leave every woman feeling confident and ready to have fun at the pool with their amazing coverage. Plus they are so stylish and comfortable to wear. Now that you’re swimsuit is out of the way, we can’t forget about a cover up. We suggest these adorable Go Wild Shorts and a basic t-shirt. Or if a dress is more comfortable for you, our G.I. Jill Dress has that relaxed fit as well as the perfect material after a dip in the pool.

Visit the Zoo

The zoo isn’t just for little kids, there’s something so exciting about lions and gorillas so close. Plus there’s something there for everyone in the family, whether you are there with little kids or not. However, when it comes to the zoo and all that walking you have to think about your outfit. You don’t want to be sweating, overly uncomfortable or trapped in shoes that make you miserable.

Our St. Barts Skirt or any of our Loved Daily or knit style skirts are perfect for creating a stylish and feminine look while still being comfortable. Now for an extra fun style we would suggest pairing this with our Reign Sneakers, the fun cheetah print pattern is just the thing to complete the outfit. Pair these skirts with any loose fitting t-shirt for the cutest outfit!

Drive-In Movie

Feeling a little nostalgic? Head to a drive-in movie, there is something so fun about cuddling up in the back of a car or truck and watching a movie. Plus you can never go wrong with popcorn and candy for snacks. If you live in Utah there are still some drive-ins around like the one in Sanpete County, the Basin Drive-in or in West Valley at the Redwood Drive-in.

The perfect outfit for a drive-in includes pants with a comfortable waistband, graphic t-shirt and a lightweight cardigan in case it gets chilly. We suggest our Be My Boyfriend Jeans because of their relaxed fit and elastic waist while still being chic and stylish. Now when it comes to graphic t-shirts we have too many too choose from and any of them will do! But we chose our Here Comes the Sun Tee. For a lightweight cardigan our Denver, Lelani or Luna Cardigans will do the trick! This is our Lelani and we also have it in mustard!

Bonfire Up The Canyon

Get together with your best friends and head up to a campground. It takes less planning than camping, but you can still enjoy some of the best things. Like s’mores, tinfoil dinners or hot dogs and hanging around a fire. Plus to make it even more fun grab a game like cornhole or a deck of cards and play around the fire. There’s something so refreshing and summery about being in the woods with a fire and your best friends.

When it comes to activities like this its always smart to bring a light jacket. Yes there’s a fire, but it can still get a little chilly. One jacket we think is perfect for this occasion is our Carried Away Denim Jacket it’s a beautiful blush color adding the perfect stylish look. If it tends to be a little chillier at night where you live it might be a good idea to pair this with a long sleeve top, like our Vice Ruffle Detail Sweater. It’s super stretchy, soft and the perfect thickness to keep you comfortable if the weather picks up.

Fishing Trip

Now hear me out, you may not be all about fishing but with the right company and snacks you are in for a good time. There’s something so relaxing about hanging out by the lake and the excitement of hooking a fish. Plus if you get tired of fishing or the fish aren’t biting there’s nothing more refreshing than taking a dip in the lake. Spend the day out in nature with your best friends and we promise you it’ll be a day you won’t regret.

The perfect outfit for fishing is something comfortable, so think about the weather. It can be too hot for jeans and you’ll be way too overdressed if you show up in a blouse. The perfect fishing outfit is comfortable, can be layered if the weather acts up and did we mention it already, it has to be comfortable. Make your job easier and go for a jumpsuit, like our Marissa Dotted Jumpsuit or Festival Vibes Jumpsuit.

With the last few weeks of summer there’s no time for sitting on the couch, being bored. We are dying to see what adventures you go on in the last couple weeks of summer. Be sure to document your adorable outfits and share them with us. Plus if you have any other ideas that you think need to be included let us know!
