Spending Labor Day Weekend
Are you ready for Labor Day weekend? The long-awaited three-day break is finally here, and your last opportunity to soak up the final moments of summer wearing your dream hot-weather outfits. To get some inspiration, we spoke with writer and editor Olivia Perez about her plans for a Labor Day weekend in Malibu…
What are your plans for Labor Day weekend?
I’ll be at home in LA with my family! I grew up in Malibu, so we love to spend weekends by the beach with a big BBQ. My mom ships in ribs from South Carolina, we go paddle boarding and invite all our friends. We go all out.
What’s the best long weekend you’ve ever had?
My friends and I went to Cabo for a wedding last November. Being from LA, Cabo has always been a great go-to for us since it’s only two hours away. We got to watch our closest friends get married and then ended up staying a few days after just to be with each other, binge on tacos and enjoy the beach. I always say it’s not where you are but who you’re with.
What would your dream long weekend consist of?
I’ve been dying to check out Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada. The water there is turquoise blue and you’re surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. Since I’m a city girl I love to experience lake life and be in nature.
What’s your go-to dinner party outfit?
Labor Day feels like the end of summer, so I always bring out my favorite hot-weather looks for a last hurrah. I’ve been living in dresses with sandals and statement earrings this season.
What would be your plans if you had to stay in New York over the Labor Day weekend?
I love New York over a long weekend! The city is always so busy so it gives me a chance to try out new places and experience the city when it’s quiet. The new Soho House in Dumbo has some of the most incredible views of the city (and a pool!) so I’d probably hang out there with friends, go over to one of my favorite restaurants Don Angie and anything outdoors to take in the last of the summer weather.
