With Labor Day weekend quickly approaching, I can’t help but be reminded that the end of summer is here. Our long days of vegging in bikinis and sippin’ on seasonal sangria pitchers are numbered, but don’t fret!

For Love and Lemons lookbook

1. Wear White

If you truly follow the rule, (which to be honest, who really does??), this is your last weekend to wear white! Look casually poised and gorg in a breezy white summer dress like this one from Reformation.

2. Go Au Naturale

Attain a natural look by adding not one, but two blushes! Start by swirling a peachy hue on your cheekbones, then add a classic pink to the apples.

3. Nail It

Choose a polish with shine and sass, but don’t go too full-out. Opt for a bright color that can transition you from the end of summer to the start of fall, like this new, addictive Essie shade.

4. Top (k)notch

This effortless, unapologetic hair trend has been all of our lifesavers this season. Style a top knot for this weekend’s night out at the bar after a salty beach day, or save it for the hungover brunch you’ll be throwing yourself together for on Monday;)
