6 Things That Need to Be a Part of Your Labor Day Weekend

Posted August 29, 2013 by in Lifestyle

Going away tomorrow? Whether you’re staying home or you’re heading to the beach, you’re bound to have a relaxing and fun long weekend.

Labor Day is the perfect way to end your summer and a great way to kick-off the start of a great fall season.

Below are six things that need to be a part of your weekend. Don’t live in the U.S.? Play hooky on Monday and do these things anyway. Why? Because they’re fun!

1. Dark Lipstick

After Labor Day, it’s officially okay to wear dark lipstick. So rock it girl!


2. A Cookout

It’s almost mandatory to have a yummy grilled hot dog or hamburger during the final days of summer. Don’t forget the corn and potato salad!


3. Dancing


Like real dancing, not just jumping up and down at a rave (even though that’s fun!) Instead, put on a pair of pumps and grab your friends for a night of the cha cha or salsa.

If you find dancing in pumps too painful, wear a shoe with a block heel. The wider/thicker the heel…the more comfortable. We really like this pair of  Marco Tozzi’s from Shoes By Mail. They’re simple yet practical and they’ll go with everything!


4. Marshmallows and Fancy Cocktails

At some point this weekend, find time to have a small bon fire with friends. Enjoy S’mores and fancy cocktails while talking about how each of your summers went and what you’re excited about for fall…or Miley’s VMA performance…whatever floats your boat!


5. Shopping!

This one’s obvious, it’s almost as big of a deal as Black Friday. So many stores are going to have amazing sales. Take advantage and stock up on necessities!


6. Yoga

Relax, unwind and enjoy your day off by taking a yoga class! You’ll feel amazing after and it’ll be a great way to recharge after all your food, sun, shopping and late nights.
