Summer time may be coming to an end and that may means that time spent hanging out at the pool or having backyard gatherings and barbecues is short lived for most parts of the country. There is, however, one last summer holiday that helps us say good bye to bikinis, shorts and flip flops ~ Labor Day! (Okay…you can still wear the flip flops!) Although Emily Post would cringe at the thought of wearing light weight, light colored summer clothing after Labor Day, most of us still enjoy our shorts and white clothing long after this time of the year.
In her day, the summer season began on Memorial Day and ended promptly on Labor Day. During this time society flocked from the city life to sea side homes, beach houses or mountain cottages to escape the sweltering city. Clothing that dictated the daily life in the city was of course left behind and replaced by lighter and whiter clothing but upon returning to the city in the fall, the dress code was back in full effect and the summer attire was packed up for another year. “No white after Labor Day” was the the rule.
Whether you continue to wear white after Labor Day or put on your sandals and flip flops in September, there’s still good reason to mix up a few yummy cocktails to give the summer season a proper send off. This year, surround yourself by friends and family while at the pool, the beach or in a backyard but don’t forget to include hassle-free drinks using Skinnygirl Cocktails.
