I Can’t Wait For Summer Because..


I can’t wait to sit on the lake or lounge on a boat and watch gorgeous sunsets just like this one last summer.

Everyone is so much happier in the summer. Tan people = happy people.

I can leave my house without a jacket and boots without worrying about my toes falling off.

It’s so much easier to get ready. Get out of the shower, brush my hair, throw on some mascara and I’m ready to go!

I can sit outside at night listening to crickets and gazing at the stars. It’s amazing how small your problems become when you think about how big the universe is.

Outdoor country concerts. Duh.


Sitting in a chair doing nothing but reading ALL day is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.


NO PANTS! During the summer I’m either always in dresses, shorts or bathing suits. There are never any pants in sight for this girl and that’s exactly how I like it.

Day drinking is more socially acceptable. A Mike’s Hard Lemonade and fishing at 10 am? Well, sign me up.

I’m footloose and fancy free during the summer!


You may not believe me but there is seriously nothing I don’t like about the summer. My heart and my skin are so much happier! Link up with Helene  and Taylor to share your favorite things about summer!

Wishing for Summer.

Spring and Summer are right around there corner. At least that’s what I am telling myself, and seriously hoping for, while I wait for the snow to start… again. After the foot of snow we received Saturday I am so ready for it to be done with. In the spirit of warmer weather I have compiled a small list of items I am lusting after for the upcoming months!

ONE// Longchamp ‘Le Pliage small shoulder bag in “Lagoon.”  As the proud Momma to two other ‘Le Pliage bags I would love to get my hands on a nice spring color. My other two are darker fall/winter colors and extremely well loved.  Find this little beauty here.

TWO// A bathing suit from Triangl. If you haven’t heard about Triangl yet then drop what you’re doing and click here immediately. So cute, right? You’re welcome.

THREE// How gorgeous is this ring? If you are following me on twitter (you’re lame if not) you know how emotionally attached I am to my jewelry. Rings especially.  This one I asked my family for for my birthday. I’m turning 21 in May and would be the happiest girl in the world if the fam delivered on this beauty. Find this gorgeous little thing here.

FOUR//When you think summer, primarily during a snow storm, what is your first thought? I don’t know about you but mine is a cold drink on the beach. To keep drinks cold you obviously need a koozie, duh. Good thing rougeandco on etsy does koozies better than anyone else.

FIVE// BOWS! I love bows- they’re adorable, preppy, SASSY and can pull any outfit together. Southern Tea Boutique  has the best of the best. I will take one of each please!

SIX// Vineyard Vines shep shirt. Does a standard sweatshirt get any cuter? Nope. Really anything from Vineyard Vines can go a long way with me.

What are you lusting after for the upcoming months?
