It's Officially Summertime!

With the high temps in the Bay Area lately, I don't need the solstice to tell me summer has arrived . . . but it sure does feel official now!  I can't wait to see what time the sun goes down tonight.  It's been staying light till almost 9 pm!

Some summery things that are on my mind:

my new favorite cover-up; macys.com


These Target wedges that are sold out in my size/on backorder :(

This! So yummy.

The only problem with summer is that all I really want to do is lay by the pool, have beers/cocktails on porches with friends, and take day trips to fun places. 

What's on your mind for summer?

I don't think laying by a pool and sipping on cocktails is problematic at all! :) We deserve it, girl! I adore that coverup and swimsuit - it's been years since I've bought a new one, so I might as well go do it!

This is so inappropriate but my husband would call those shoes leave 'em ons. That's all I can ever think of when I see shoes like that!

I'm so jealous it's even pool weather for you right now!

I drank two bottles of skinnygirl margarita a couple of weekends ago- as in, I opened one bottle and drank it all by myself, then opened a second (which I had bought to put in my bar) and finished it off, as well.
I love skinnygirl- but I do NOT suggest taking in that much in one night. :(

The best part of summer is being able to read whatever! Though I guess that doesn't necessarily apply to me anymore since I graduated college.

I need to try Skinny Girl Margarita - I've only had the Sangria. Sounds delish :)

And I wish I were at a pool with ya!

Oh man, can I leave in the swimsuit? I'd feel like a glam beach goddess without a care in the world.

I have those wedges and LOVE them... unfortunately I've only worn them like ONCE. Serious neglect over here... I'll have to bust them out this weekend (:

Best thing about summer is that I can sit outside for hours, even after it gets dark and not freeze!! ;) And of course the flowy tops and dresses are my favorites when it comes to this wonderful season!

Baseball games!

I have decided I want to be a teacher. I want summers off very badly.
For now, things on my mind... getting Quinney out in her little blow up pool on the weekends, sundresses, and being barefoot.

I love those wedges. I think I tried them on while I was in Cali but they didn't fit my feet properly.

I drink Skinny margarita with some cranberry juice. It's yummy.

i'm glad you posted the skinny girl. i wasn't sure what to think about it so i haven't picked up a bottle yet.

that suit is adorable and would look great on you! i usually buy my suits from banana/gap/old navy and regardless of how i feel about my body fully clothed, i seem to only by bikinis!

we've been drinking A LOT of Pimm's and Lillet this summer. like cases of both. dangerous.
