If you haven’t caught on, summer is my absolute favorite season: I cherish the days of sunshine, warmth, and abundant flowers everywhere. And as always, it is flying by — but I am doing my very best to soak up every moment of joy summer has to offer!
I’ll share my favorites from the month here in hopes that they can bring a little bit of joy to you all as well. Enjoy!
I can’t get enough of having a yard, and I’m out there all the time either lounging, relaxing in our cutie blow up pool, playing with Gazpacho, or trying my hand at gardening. Good sunscreen is a must, but I have notoriously sensitive skin when it comes to sunblock — I tend to break out in rash for some reason with a couple of the drugstore varieties. Not only that, but I’ve always hated the tacky, sticky feeling of sunscreen…until I discovered this brand a couple years ago. Now I legit just buy it in bulk and love it. It smells good, goes on like a really nice moisturizer, and their mint lip balm with sunscreen is another personal favorite!
Spaulding Ruffled Floral Print Linen Midi Dress
My favorite parts of spring and summer are dresses: I’m personally way more comfortable in a dress than shorts or jeans, and instantly get a major self-esteem boost when I put one on. I had this dress on my wishlist for several weeks and decided to treat myself because I loved the print and those sweet ruffled straps. Once it arrived, it was even more special and fits like a dream — I know I’ll reach for this for years to come! Highly recommend (and this would be a great option for special occasions like weddings, etc.)…
James Shearling Slippers by Freda Salvador
I am a freak about always needing a trusty pair of slippers – the second I get out of bed in the mornings or when I get home after a long day, I slip them on as a little personal luxury. I even pack them on overnight trips, vacations, and family visits…my slippers are like a safety blanket to me so I’m super picky. I recently had to toss my last worn-out pair and decided to grab these on a whim and oh my goodness, I love love love them. I HAD to share with you all because they are also currently 40% off with lots of stock left, so if you are in the market, treat yourself! (or a great gift idea!)
Driving with the Windows Down and Feel Good Classics, with a dash of dancing around to Fleetwood Mac, which is always recommended
just finished Mare of Easttown (so good!) and binging Friends again from start to finish after watching the reunion (which I also loved)
I’m absolutely in love with our new nightstand — one that I’d had bookmarked a couple years ago, then fell even more in love with via the lovely Ashley Kane. We are keeping our bedroom very simple (I detailed my vision and plans here if you missed it!) and I love that these bring in a lot of visual interest and warmth. I went with a very low bed, so I currently have the nightstand being worked on be a furniture restorer to be shortened a bit, and I’m waiting on bated breath for the final result. In any case, you can actually grab it here at 20% off!
That’s all for now: be sure to visit the refreshed homepage for new summer style and home selections for July and fresh visual inspiration! I’ve got some fun things planned for this month that I’m also excited to share so stay tuned….
