This Labor Day, take a tip from us. Relaxed fashion and an easy prep menu certainly make perfect harmony; therefore, here are just a few tips that make a long holiday weekend one for the record books….and one that gives you enough time to enjoy and love the ones your are with.
What to wear & what to eat….
- On the Water…..Our Piper and Brooke set in sand by Rails is a great, casual option to keep on hand this weekend. These pieces are perfect to break the chill after a day on the water and will take you way into the fall for a myriad of events. If the lake is what is in store for you, try this yummy corn dip that has kick due to pepper jack cheese and is done on top of the stove with one single cast iron skillet so you don’t have loads of dishes after enjoying.
- Pool Day…Relaxing by the pool is always a sure way for a day well spent. After a long day in the sun, slipping into our Lola dress is an easy step into style. This dress gained late summer popularity due to it’s versatility and comfortable cut. As for what to serve, this spicy watermelon bev will keep your tastebuds ready to rumble.
- Cookout Ready…Denim crops are an easy go-to right now. COH’s Daphne pair can go with almost any casual top and booties combo. Grabbing a great cardi and tossing one over a tank for a night outside under the summer’s ending stars is just what our denim selections were made for! While burgers and dogs are a traditional crowd pleaser, up the ante this Labor Day with this delish Pesto, Tomato, and Mozzarella grilled pizza….yummo! Relaxed yet with an upscale twist just like SO much in our e.Allen stores right now!
