Celebrating Labor Day with Symbols of Summer


Turn that melon-choly frown upside down. You can keep the summer season alive with the Serena Satchel with Watermelon Print from COACH. A delicious twist on a designer handbag...grab your credit card asap! It’s on sale right now at the COUCH Outlet for $98.40, which is 70% off its original price of $328.

This funky, chic smooth leather satchel is ideal for an upscale brunch or a leisurely stroll through the farmers market. It measures 8.25” long, 5.75” high and comes with a multifunction pocket (inside) and slip pocket (outside) so it’ll fit your daily essentials. Hold it by the handle or wear it crossbody by detaching the strap for a 21” drop.

End of summer sales really are the best, and there are always hidden gems at the COACH Outlet (both online and at the physical retail location). Get ready to swing this baby front to back as you strut your stuff all fall long.


Go out with a bang, in BANGS 100% vegan shoes! This adventure-ready footwear is made with heavy canvas and vulcanized rubber sole and toe cap. Vulcanization is a chemical process that improves elasticity, resilience, viscosity, hardness, and rubber resistance. Plus, these shoes are just so gosh darn adorable (in an adult sort of way).

The Flower Pedal High Tops, which come in a plum color with the bike and flower embroidery, go for $70 and are unisex. Unless most Converse-style shoes, these puppies come equipped with an additional footbed, arch support, and a reinforced heel counter - so you’ll feel supported from sunrise to sunset.

BANGS offers a variety of designs just as sweet as these, including: a blazing sunrise over tree-lined mountains, a galaxy of stars and planets, a buzzing bee sitting atop glorious sunflowers, and a bunch of spikey succulents. Try their low tops and slip ons, too!

All that’s left is to lace up, get up, and commence the adventure.


It’s one of those universal truths: everybody loves beach hair. It’s sexy in an effortless, didn’t-even-really-try kind of way. It’s wild and untamed, which is so essentially summer we cannot handle it. It’s time to praise the powers that be at Murdock London, a luxury men’s grooming brand who has created a Sea Salt Spray that is *chefs kiss* just perfect for any man’s mane from this summer until next.

Sea salt spray absorbs into the hair’s natural oils and enhances existing curls or creates volume and texture for straight locks. Simply spritz a light amount throughout damp or wet hair and scrunch to the desired level of tousle. The formula is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, petrochemicals, and synthetic dyes. It is also Fair Trade Certified. Made in the United Kingdom, you can purchase a 5.1 fl oz (150 ml) bottle for $32 from Nordstrom.

Cue the beach waves all year round, baby.


The season is a-changing...are you ready? Say YES. Change, however scary, is usually good. Change means new opportunities. Change means a fresh start. Sometimes, you just need a glaring, neon-sign to remind you.

Ask you and shall receive. N A M E G L O quite literally has you covered with this mini “yes” sign. This petite piece is perfect for your desk, fireplace mantel, or on the top bookcase shelf. It measures 7” high by 10.6” wide and is battery powered (lasts about 50,000 hours). It’s made with White LEF neon and a White PVC jacket and comes mounted on a white, acrylic base.

The $250 “yes” sign is part of N A M E G L O’s current rotation of original designs, so check back often to see what new pieces they add. Some of our other summer-spirited faves include: “Wave,” “Kiss,” “Cloud on Clouds,” “Aloe Vera,” and “Tree Cactus.”

A one year warranty is included on all pieces. Say no more - except only to say YES!

As the season of sunshine, swimsuits, and seagulls comes to a close, see what summer elements can you find hidden within some of your favorite purchases. We’re fortunate to live in a 24-hr, all-access world, so if you cannot find any fresh pineapple...just buy these $8.95 socks from Hollister.
