Today is a big day on the blog! I'm starting a new series with my sister, Chelsea at Whatcha Makin' Now, and I'm starting a new mini-series this week to help you all transition your clothes from Summer to Fall.
Chelsea and I have so much fun blogging and wanted to come up with a weekly way to collaborate. We came up with this "Take On" series. Each week we will take on a topic, adventure, or holiday that you'll need to dress and prepare food for. This week we're taking on Labor Day. I call this the unofficial end of summer. Whomp, whomp. It's a great opportunity to get together with friends and grill, for sure. The weather starts to change some too, so today I'm showing you how to make shorts last a little while longer, and dress comfortably and stylishly for your Labor Day celebrations.
I think the jean jacket is the perfect addition to many outfits, including this one. This summer I wore these shorts a ton with a simple chambray or tank top; that won't cut it as it begins to cool down. Adding a jean jacket keeps this outfit casual, but will make sure you don't get too cool grilling with friends and family.
