#TBT Summer Style: A Few of My Favorite Things



"Dear Summer: as magical as you are I think it's time we took a break. Don't take this the wrong way, there are so many things I love about you but I've been having a love affair with fall..."

I know I've been harping on Fall lately and how excited I am, but I wanted to say one last farewell to the warmer months. I've been keeping a running tally of the things that I love most about summer on my phone, since I feel like I tend to rush through the seasons sometimes. Every time I had a really good "summery" day I would put an item or so on the list to represent it. Looking back on the list now I realize what a great summer it was (minus the humidity) and it will be bittersweet to say goodbye.

  • Fish tacos
  • Sitting on the patio with a glass of wine
  • Iced coffee with a shot of caramel
  • A swipe of coral lipstick
  • The first time your toes touch the sand
  • Spending all day floating
  • Coconut scented sunscreen
  • Ice cream cone with rainbow sprinkles
  • Cool showers (especially outdoor)
  • Shark week
  • Blasts of cold AC after a hot day
  • Bright blue water
  • The cooling of aloe vera
  • Long days with sunsets
  • Going fishing - and catching your dinner!
  • Road trips with the windows down
  • Reggae music in the sun
  • Bonfires
  • Picking up summer produce at the farm stand
  • Sunkissed hair tucked into braids
  • Hot dogs at baseball games
  • The smell of newly cut grass
  • Mango salsa
  • Highlighter on tanned skin
  • Fireworks that light up the sky
  • Fresh cut flower crowns
  • Finding the perfect pair of reflective sunglasses
  • The sound of waves crashing

Thankfully I do have one last beach trip next weekend before I put away the sundresses and sandals. What are you going to miss most about Summer?
