With Memorial Day behind us, it officially feels like summer. Despite the fact that the forecast is already showing triple digits for this week (!), summer remains my very favorite season. There’s a certain feeling that comes with the arrival of summer that doesn’t happen with any other season. It’s an anticipatory feeling that reminds of childhood fun – long days at the pool, twice-daily ice cream cones, summer camps. Even as an adult, I still get this feeling. My days don’t look anything like they did as a child (I won’t be spending all day by the pool sipping on Slush Puppies), the excitement is still there. There’s lots to look forward to on this summer’s agenda: the hydrangeas that bloom in my backyard, the return of all-day-everyday white denim, a couple of weddings, evening walks to the sno-cone stand by my house, and, of course, my upcoming trip to Africa. (The last one is quickly approaching. I leave in three weeks.) What has you most excited for summer?
On a separate note, if it’s the summer sales that have you excited right now then be sure to check out this one. From now until the end of the weekend, you can score 40% off all kinds of fun summer goodies. My personal picks: this (love the color!), this, this (perfect for a summer cocktail party or wedding), this, this, and this.
