September is here, and we’re reveling in this end-of-summer aesthetic. It’s full of the everyday back-in-the-swing of things: carpool, office days, errands, and the whirlwind, but there’s space still for Saturdays on the boat, sunset drinks on the porch, and savoring pool dips, and beach trips while we can. Here’s what we’re wearing to make the most of it all: 

Porchside Perfection: Golden Hour Happy Hour

A light and easy dress to throw-on-and-go is the ticket here. We opt for maxi dresses to billow in the breeze, sleeveless silhouettes to keep things cool, and delicate layered jewelry to glint and gleam in the golden hour magic. Shoes will easily dress this up or down for any evening plan. 


Best On Deck: Boat Day Getaway

Cruising the coastline and staying classic, uncomplicated and chic? We grab the bikini that takes you anywhere and everywhere with ease (you can’t go wrong with a sophisticated and all-day ready black), and pair it with a smart, lightweight shirt dress for some versatile coverage. 


Busy Day Power Play: Carpool, Careering, Cardio, the Caboodle

The hustle and bustle is covered with a few essential pieces to handle any activity. Matching sets, and throw-on-and-go activewear dresses make it easy to handle anything on the to-do list in total comfort and style. 


A soft, feminine, flowy dress is the perfect one-piece-wonder to take us through sunny days and effortlessly shift into any evening activity. 


Endless Summer Style: Sand and Swim Finale

September is still very much a summer feel in places like Charleston. That means we’re still beach-bound and poolside, soaking in the last of the season. To feel more Septembery, we like a softer palette for suits, and chic silhouettes and details that elevate the look. Pairing that with a brightly patterned sarong to use as a skirt adds a hint of exotic glamor.


September style is all about the wear now, layer later pieces. It’s transition time, and these are the looks and versatile pieces: throw-on coverups, flowy dresses, and all day accessories, to celebrate this shift in season, and soak up every last drop.
