This summer was kind of a bust for me. I didn’t fit in a single beach day or even a quick trip to the pool! I ended up having a lot on my plate at work, and having to spend so much time training Nutmeg and fitting my life around her I just didn’t have a lot of time for summer luxuries.
Anyway, here’s five of my summer favs!
We started going here when I was just a kiddo and then when I got older and we moved it was right around the corner. Seriously the best ice cream ever! I only made it there twice this year (to celebrate the end of my dad’s schoolyear, and to counteract the return), but it’s open through October, so there’s still hope!
I bought this top earlier this summer and it has been so perfect for barbecues and nights out with friends. It’s flowy and has a split back/front that looks great. I also have been loving the fresh lemon print; it’s a great way to wear yellow without looking like an ear of corn! If you’re in search of a strapless bra to wear with it, I recently got this one and it was actually life changing!
I’m a sucker for my dog, so I ordered her a Barkbox subscription and I love it! I was skeptical, but it is well worth the price for the value you are getting. It’s fun every month when it arrives for us to open it and see what treats and toys she received. (Sign up here if you want to try it out!) On top of that, the BarkPost blog is hilarious – think BuzzFeed but totally dog themed. Perfect for puppy lovers! Here’s my favorite post so far; it’s actually so true.
This is a great summer wine and really affordable. I’ve been able to find it in most shops I stop in, so you have to try it out! (I also think it will be a good wine for September and October when you’re still keeping things light!)
We didn’t do any brackets or leagues for this season, but I have really been enjoying everyone’s shenanigans. Ashley I. always brings the entertainment and I’m loving the Grace (Grant/Lace) drama. Really looking forward to January when Nick’s season of The Bachelor will air? Will he find love? (I’m sure he will, but let’s all be in suspense about it.)
What have you been loving this summer? Is there anything you just can’t get enough of?
