How Not to Dress Your Kids for Labor Day

Read More

With Labor Day right around the corner, chances are that you have been invited to plenty of barbecues in order to celebrate the big day. Since school will have already started for most kids, chances are that they will have their fair share of new back-to-school clothes that you already bought for them from Sheplers. In order to not dirty up their nice new school clothes, check out this list from Sheplers for avoiding unwanted clothing messes and mishaps.

White

Even though this is technically the last day to wear white, the same rules don’t always apply to kids. Since kids can usually get away with wearing white well into the New Year, save white clothing for occasions other than barbecues. Think about it, do you really want to be worrying about them spilling ketchup on their brand new clothes the entire duration of the barbecue? Besides, this is the time for your kids to run around and have fun before the school year really hits the ground running.

Sandals

Chances are that your kids will be at a barbecue where they will have plenty of activities for everyone to take part in outside, so make sure that they are able to run around and have as fun much as possible by dressing them in the safest (and not to mention cutest) shoes possible. Opt for a pair of cowboy boots that will allow your kids to play for hours on end, as well as make them the cutest dressed kids at the party.

Sunscreen

Sure, sunscreen is always necessary when you are expecting to spend most of the day outdoors, but make sure that your kids don’t have their memories dampened of the fun they had by bringing home a sunburn. Let them pick out a cowboy hat from Sheplers that they will not want to take off the whole time that they are there.

Read More

Thinking of hosting your own Labor Day barbecue? Or are you simply looking for a different way to spice up your traditional burger? Regardless of the reason, you have come to the right place, because Sheplers knows a thing or two about making the perfect burger.

Shep Burgers

Try some of these creative toppings in order to add a new taste of flair to your signature burger – despite whether or not it is for a Labor Day Party or a simple back-to-school treat for your kids.

  • Try a salmon burger topped with chimichurri sauce – for a burger that has a slightly more upscale feel than the typical burger-and-barbecue sauce combination.
  • If you have a lot of family members and friends that prefer turkey burgers, then top some of the patties with Cajun grilled onions for a signature Southwest taste.
  • Tired of serving beef burgers with the same old condiment bar year after year? Push your ketchup and mustard bottles to the side and top your burger with a pineapple-jalapeno salsa. Trust us, you will be wondering why you had not tried it sooner!

How to Break-in Your Boots

Imagine that you just found the perfect outfit to go with your brand new pair of boots, except that there is one problem – you have no time to break them in.

In order to avoid the age old problem that women everywhere have to deal with, speed up the breaking-in process of your boots while avoiding any discomfort that wearing them those first couple of times might incur. After all, a new season means a whole new wardrobe, so don’t let anything take away from the excitement of getting to rock a brand new pair of fall boots.

Shep Fall Break in Boots

Break in your boots with these easy tips from Sheplers and the only thing that you will have to worry about is what outfit to pair them with.

  • Fill two plastic gallon bags halfway with water and zip them tight. Make sure that all of the extra air is squeezed out and then place them in your shoes. Afterwards, place your boots in the freezer overnight. Since water expands as it turns into ice, it will stretch out the leather, making them that much more comfortable when you go to wear them for the first time.
  • Cut down on potential friction and layer on two pairs of socks when you first wear your boots. The extra layer of socks will help stretch out your boots, as well as keep your feet as comfortable as possible.

The Best Reasons Why You Should Clean Your Closet Out For Fall

Read More

Most people can usually come to the agreement that no one enjoys cleaning out their closet. Between all of the time that it takes, the constant heartbreak of having to get rid of some of your beloved articles of clothing, and then having to put everything back again, it is enough to make anyone avoid having to clean out their closet.

Shep Clean Closet

While plenty of your clothing comes with a fair share of memories, maybe it is time to throw out that scrunchie that your best friend gave you in the ‘90s. If your favorite track suit from the ‘80s doesn’t quite match the look that you are aiming for today, then maybe it is time to expel it from your closet.

Once you have gone through everything, the time has come to send the respective pieces of your wardrobe from decades past onto new homes. If you can’t bear the thought of unceremoniously throwing your once-loved articles of clothing in the trash, then there are plenty of charities that will come to your home and pickup whatever you are getting rid of.

Now the fun part begins – shopping for replacement clothes! Check out some of these must-have fall items from Sheplers this season and you will be wondering why you don’t clean your closet every week!

Now that summer is almost over, the time has come to say goodbye to it with a bang by throwing the best Labor Day barbecue possible!

Since this is the last bash of the summer, it should be the best one. All you need to do is make sure that you cover the basics when it comes to throwing the best Labor Day barbecue, making it one that all of your friends and family members will be talking about all season long.

Decorations

First thing’s first – you want to make sure that you have your decorations set up and ready for your Labor Day barbecue. Since Labor Day is an American holiday, you will want to decorate with red, white, and blue. The most inexpensive and fastest way to do this is to place American flag colored balloons throughout your backyard. Tiki torches are a great touch for when it starts to get dark outside, as well as hanging up some hammocks for your guests to relax in during the party.

Games

Aside from laying back and relaxing, you will also want to make sure that your guests have plenty of activities to keep them entertained. The best way to do that is to make sure that there are plenty of games to keep everyone on their feet the whole time. Sheplers suggests picking American classics that honor the holiday, such as corn hole, football, and horseshoes.

Food

Perhaps the most important part of any barbecue, what you choose to grill should be chosen carefully, especially since this is one of the last opportunities that you will have to grill for the rest of the year. Hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken kabobs, grilled corn on the cob, potato salad, and a variety of chips are a must. If you want, you can challenge your guests on who can make the best desserts, by hosting a bake-off for everyone to participate in.
