The beginning of Spring means that we’re coming out hibernation mode, and finding excuses to spend less time at home, and more time with friends and family. I, for one, am looking forward to the end of Winter and I’m excited to enjoy my best Spring and Summer yet! I feel like my calendar always fills up more quickly as soon as the weather gets warmer, mostly because of wedding season and all the events that go along with it (bachelorette parties, wedding and baby showers, and more)… but also just because aren’t we’re all looking for a good excuse to spend the day out on a patio… even if it’s our own?
So as we’re heading out to your various hangouts this Spring, there are a couple things the perfect guest always keeps in mind… and in hand:
1. Dress To Impress
… Yes, even if you’re just hanging out with your friends! Kind of like how I still get showered and dressed when I’m working from home to put me in a work-ready mindset, getting dressed to go see my friends always has me ready for whatever else the day throws my way. Plus, it’s just another great way to make a regular day feel more special.
“Dressing up” doesn’t mean being uncomfortable though — you guys already know that I love my star-print sneakers for any occasion, and this cropped bell-sleeved blazer from Versona is a great everyday piece that also works as the perfect conversation starter!
2. Lend a Helping Hand
This is something that I definitely picked up as a habit from my mom — whenever I’m over at my friends’ place, I’m always happy to lend a helping hand around the house, especially if we’re making dinner. Your friend’s doing you the favor of hosting you, and offering to help with the clean-up process is always one of the best ways to show your appreciation.
3. Come Bearing Gifts
Gifts aren’t only for housewarming parties, and a bottle of wine is always a great go-to gift to pick up on your way to your friend’s place! Seven Daughters is always a great option if you’re looking for a good wine brand to gift… and the wine even comes in cans, if you’re looking for a portable option that you can enjoy wherever your day takes you. Enjoy!
