DC is a fast-paced city that never sleeps sleeps from about 2am to 5am. If you don’t stop to look around once in a while, it may pass you by. Bueller. Things have been a little crazy around here for the last few weeks & I got the overwhelming feeling that I was missing certain moments & life was passing me by simply because of how busy + stressed out I’d been. It was one of those times that a getaway to Bethany Beach or a road trip up to NYC sounded like exactly what I needed but ain’t nobody had time for that & last minutes fur-baby sitters cost a small fortune. So with no chance of getting out of the city there was only one thing to do: Staycation.
I ordered #GIRLBOSS with next day delivery, tossed on a coverup + my favorite summer hat, threw a few essentials in my beach bag + headed out to my poolside oasis that’s conveniently feet from my front door.
To round off the weekend, I had a few friends over to celebrate America + my new golden tan. There’s nothing quite like leftover fireworks, a killer view, + having all of the staycation essentials you need to create a completely stress-free + relaxing weekend.
With Lolla weekend right around the corner, it’s time to stock up on your festival essentials & grab your favorite light + summery looks. You can’t typically catch me roaming festival grounds but Lolla is on a level all its own. Ah, midwest college memories. Since I’m a little less flower child & a little more corporate wear, I couldn’t exactly reach into my closet to grab the appropriate casual attire. Sure, jean cutoffs & an oversized white tee paired with a panama hat would cut it but three days of that homeless chic? NOPE. I’m stepping up my weekend-wear game this year. Kohl’s has recently been majorly on my radar so I headed to my nearest brick + mortar in Kingstowne to hit the racks. Not only is Kohl’s prepared to outfit you with any festival or summer concert attire you can imagine, their deals are also insane. I had zero idea how much I would save & almost felt guilty applying discount on top of discount. Almost… They are currently some amazing deals happening online & in-store & don’t forget to head to retailmenot.com to pick up coupons for even more savings. Happy shopping!
When I think summer festival I think romper, booties, & a decent sized bag to fit all my goodies into. This mix of favorites shows that you can dress it up, just a little, & still look the part.
Grab your favorite, loose fitting romper & add kick-around boots or sandals & a bag can fit all of your necessities for the day. Add a black leather jacket for late night concerts where it might get a little chilly!
