Staycation Inspiration - Ideas to Have a Fabulous Summer at Home

If you're vacationing close to home this summer, you're not alone! With a little thought and planning there are so many great summery things to do at home, or close to home so to help you make the most of staycation is we've put together a list of our favorite summery activities, menus, and of course cute outfit ideas to match. 

VINTAGE POOL PARTY
Stay cool and be cool this summer with a vintage themed pool party. Taking inspiration from our favorite movies and holiday snaps from the 50s and 60s, a pool party is a great excuse to mix up some custom cocktails, don a cute swimsuit, coverup and hat. Don't have a pool? Try a glam wading pool, or this summer's coolest trend - a stock tank pool.

OUTDOOR PICNIC
Sometimes it's enough to get outside and under some trees to feel like you've had a break, and what could be better than an outdoor summer picnic! Make it as simple as a sandwich and a beach towel, or as elaborate as your imagination allows. But don't forget to add lots of gingham for retro picnic perfection.

BE A TOURIST IN YOUR OWN CITY
It's reinvigorating to see your own city from a new perspective and a staycation is the perfect time to finally get to all of those close-by attractions you never found the time for before. Try visiting your local museums and historic monuments; take a walking tour of your city or a food tour of a new neighborhood; get outside to you local park, zoo, botanic garden and local beaches and try a new sport.
