Some of us are not getting away this year, so how can we work some vacay vibe into our staycay lives? Here are eight accessible opps. and one special wardrobe update offer from Armoire to increase your satisfaction with what’s left of summer (see #3 below!).

Summer Toes

#1 Wear great toes. Whether you DIY or outsource, nothing puts summer in your sandals like freshly painted toes.

#2 Buy two summer professional outfits you like to wear on hot hellish days. Is there anything workwear worse than facing a heat wave in too tight, too heavy, or too dark attire? July and August are still coming up, so you’ll have plenty of time to get your cost/wear way down.

#3 Do you love fashion but are on a return-to-work budget? Check out Armoire. RENT that confidence building look for your next interview or first day on the job. Armoire is offering the ReBoot Accel community $50 off their first month. Thanks to Armoire for supporting engaged energized women of all sizes, shapes, ages, and stages. See details and promo code (REBOOT50) below.

#4 Get ahead and get creative with your three day weekends. There are three national holidays every summer, with one left to go. Read this article, The Secret to Making Your Weekends Feel Longer, and get intentional about how, where, and with whom you want to spend it.

#5 Drink a Rosé. It’s light on your palate and your wallet. Plan a gathering with your gal pals and have a Rosé tasting party. We recommend RARECAT Rosé 2016 and the light white Bailiwick Vermentino 2012 to start. From two ReBoot Accel women who love and make wine.

#6 Visit farmer’s markets and park concerts. They’re free and a great way to network with your local community. Why not ride your bike? You’ll increase your step count, decrease your CO2 footprint, and boost your endorphins for all-day benefits.

#7 Browse your local library or (endangered) bookstore and go analog. Then unfold a beach chair, anywhere, open that paperback, and lose yourself.

#8 Feeling Drowsy? Dream a little. Fall is coming. What do you want to do? Are there changes you want to make? What do you need for your next stage? We’d love to hear from you and help.  Zzzzzzzzzzz.

Happy snoozing and summer from ReBoot Accel.
