Where has the summer gone? It seems like just yesterday we were all still bundled up in our favorite winter coats. Although the heat has been extra brutal these past few days, the weekend forecast is looking beyond perfect. Blue skies, cool nights, no rain, and bearable day temps.
Take advantage of this upcoming August weekend by hanging out with friends and going to fun events or places in your town/city. Go vintage shopping, try a new restaurant, or even indulge in a brunch filled with Southern comfort food.
If this seems like your kind of weekend, check out these outfits styled by Marlen, the voice behind Messages on a Napkin. She knows what’s what in the fashion department!
