Last Minute Summer Adventures

Now that August is here, there is nonstop chatter about heading back to school, cooler temperatures, and pumpkin spice lattes. Personally, I’m not quite ready to trade in my bikini and sunshine for buffalo plaid and falling leaves. With a whole month of the summer season left, I am on a personal mission to soak up as many adventures as possible; and who says you can’t be a little stylish while doing so? What’s even better, Kimes Ranch has the perfect piece of clothing for all occasions! So start planning those last minute summer getaways, and be ready to do it in style!





Any day at the lake or beach is a day well spent. Whether you get to go speeding out on a boat or relaxing on the sand, playing fetch with your dogs, there is no wrong way to enjoy the water! Whenever I head out for a lake day, I keep my look sweet and simple, with sunscreen being the only foundation I apply! The Kimes Ranch Ladies Outlier Tank makes for the perfect beach coverup! I prefer ordering my tanks a size up, that way it allows me to create effortless style with a knotted hem look! Does this light orange color have anyone else craving a creamcicle?


The mountains are calling, and I must go! Camping makes the perfect escape from the hustle of the real world. What better way to unwind than to hide out in the woods for a couple days? Staying up late circled around the campfire, making s’mores and telling stories brings back fun memories from my childhood! Once the sun goes down behind the trees & the cool night air starts to roll in, a comfy pair of denim and cozy sweater are my go to! The Alex jeans have a slouchy fit, keeping you comfortable while staying up all night listening to campfire songs. Don’t forget to share your s’mores—especially with your four-legged friends!





Are you short on time to plan a full-blown summer adventure? Take a day, or even just a few hours, to hike to your favorite destination spot! August is the perfect time of year to go picking berries along the river, hiking into the woods to enjoy the views of a breathtaking waterfall, or, for me, searching high and low for a beautiful flower field! When you take off into the wilderness, you never know what kind of terrain you might run into. The Bonnie Jeans have a skinny leg, making them perfect to pair with you hiking boots or sandals. Toss on your favorite sun hat and you’re ready for your next adventure!
