August has officially arrived, and there's still enough time to make more memories in the sunshine before summer's over. It's certainly a bittersweet time, but let's live in the moment before we consider that this glorious season will come to a close. You'll want to cherish your lazy days at the pool and beach, and Instagram captions for August will help you bookmark those end-of-summer vibes.

Don't let your August be four weeks of feeling sad that fall is right around the corner. This season is all about seizing the day (or shall I say seas-ing the day if you've dedicated most of your summer to being a beach bum). You can still plan a weekend getaway to the lake, a themed pool party for your friends to enjoy, or a solo road trip to your favorite summer hotspot. All those adventures deserve to be properly posted to the ‘Gram with their very own August quotes and it’s still summer captions.

Taylor Swift may be singing that “August slipped away into a moment in time,” but you may just be welcoming August in. For any posts at the beginning of the month, you’ll want to have some welcome August quotes and August captions. Just think of how cute a plandid of you kicking up some waves at the beach will be with a few hello August quotes to go along it. Pair some swimsuit selfies and backyard barbecue candids with summer isn’t over yet quotes – because it isn’t over yet. You’ve still got an entire month of sunny weather to enjoy.

While you can't control how fast time seems to go when you're living your best life soaking up that vitamin D, you can make good use of it. Summer's outcome is up to you, and if you spend it wisely, it won't be all that bad when it comes time to say goodbye. So, grab your pool float, strike an Insta-worthy pose, and use any of these 40 August Instagram captions to welcome this final month of summer.
