Gewurztraminer: Maximum Floral Notes and How to Enjoy the Rest of Summer

I can’t believe it is already August! July flew by, didn’t it!?

Even though this Friday’s post was about the most Fall color ever, I can’t help but think about how summer is slowly ending. I try to soak up every carefree coat-less moment, even when I’m sweating in the sun. So this post is about how we can take advantage of these last long and warm summer days instead of taking them for granted.

HOW TO ENJOY THE REST OF SUMMER:

  1. Wear it. Wear your florals and other summer outfits. I’m the first to admit that I get sick of my summer clothing around this time of year. Especially when the fall fashions and colors start to come out. Take this month to wear the outfits you dreamt of when it was snowy and cold and disgusting out. Get some cost per wear out of those denim shorts, sandals, summer dresses, and bright colors!
  2. Grill. Grilling is healthy and delicious and signifies summer. If you have a grill or have access to one, I highly recommend grilling some of your meals. I don’t think I’ve ever been unhappy with a grilled meal.
  3. Sit outside. This one kind of goes along with #2. Try to take advantage of outdoor spaces. Sit outside when you take a break at work, or go listen to music outside on the weekends. Just make sure you are prepared with some water! (We just got these hydroflasks and they are so amazing at keeping your water ice cold for HOURS.)
  4. Go to that event. Go to the concert, boat ride, outdoor art fair, road trip, baseball game…whatever event that you imagined yourself going to this summer.
  5. Enjoy the sunlight. The long days are something I deeply enjoy about the summer. Remember this winter when you woke up when it was dark and the sun started setting at 5:30 p.m.? No thank you. Even if you don’t do anything to actively take advantage of the extra sunlight, at least think about and appreciate it.
  6. Do something touristy. You can learn a lot about your city if you take the time to do that touristy thing you have never done. It will make you a better tour guide and a more well rounded individual, anyway.
  7. Visit and be visited. Get out your calendar and schedule a visit! Summer traveling is so much easier because you can pack light, drive to your destination, and really get the chance to explore with your friends.

I picked out this dress from the ModCloth IRL event in June. I recently got it back from the tailor, as I am a shorty and needed it hemmed. This dress is the perfect example of a summer item that I likely will not wear once the fall rolls around. I love the florals and bright colors. There is something so easy and effortless about a maxi dress that screams summer. Check out my last Maxi dress posts here and here.

I hope that we can a moment to think about summer and fully appreciate it. Say hi to your booties and scarves, denim and jackets, but just say hi. They will still be there for you, before you know it.
