Summer Favorites

This summer I fell in love with so many different styles, events, and new things. So many unforgettable memories were made with my best friends. Here a just a few of the things I loved most in summer 2013:

Fashion:

Cutoffs- These babies from Vintage Violet were by far the most worn piece in my closet.  They're perfectly bleached and distressed; plus they can be worn with literally anything.

Chacos- I wear these shoes at some point every day from March to October. They are the most comfortable, easy to slip on, durable sandals available to purchase. This is my third year wearing this pair, and they're still perfectly intact.

Tie-Dye Dress- This denim dress from American Eagle is so versatile and wearable! It's fit is ultra-flattering as well.

Striped Maxi Skirt- The soft material of this skirt tricks you into thinking you're wearing sweats-- but you look cute! A super easy way to wear it is with a basic tank and statement necklace. Worn here.

Printed Tie Top- Wearing this tank adds a different feel to any pair of shorts! The colors in the print are all so fun and perfect for this season. Worn here.

Random:

Two Door Cinema Club- I've been listening to this band non-stop because their unique, upbeat sound is perfect for summer. Some of my favorite songs from them are "What You Know", "Undercover Martyn", and "Sun".

Sweet Tea- This was the summer I became unhealthily obsessed with sweet tea and drank more than any human ever should. It's wonderful.

Candy Crush- HUGE DISCLAIMER: DO NOT START THIS GAME IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY. It's ridiculously addictive, and you will fall into the trap that was the indirect cause of my first iPhone breakage.  Way too much of my summer was spent on this game. But I still love it.

Rend Collective Experiment- Oh my goodness, this is the most joyful, praising, uplifting band! Any song by them leaves me smiling and wanting more of Jesus. Listen to "You Bled", "Movements", "Build Your Kingdom Here", and "Second Chance".

Wakarusa- That weekend was an experience I will never in my life forget. Here is the full post I did on it.


What did you love this summer??

  2. I just came across your blog--it's so cute! :) Those vintage shorts are so adorable, and really a trend for this past summer. And Undercover Martyn is probably one of the best songs ever!
