{STYLE} Creating the Best Summer Ever


Historically, summer isn't my favorite time of year. I'm averse to heat, I used to not like the beach, and New York's humidity is especially good at making me always look like a disheveled mess. After a really chaotic and stressful (but genuinely awesome, just, you know, exhausting), few months, I am determined on making this summer the best summer of my life. Part of that is the list of amazing travel I have coming up, my best friend's wedding, exciting projects I'm getting ready to unveil, but it's also a really, really concentrated and intentional effort to make the most of all the little bits of free time I have popping up in my schedule. 

Best Summer Ever was definitely kicked off by my mini-trip to Summer Camp, but I've made a little cheat sheet for myself to stay focused on my goal to make this summer a memorable one. As far as general life accomplishments go, I'm feeling pretty good about things, but this is a gentle reminder to myself to celebrate all the good that's going on.

  2. Ok, that really is a list - it's ambitious and cool. If we don't set our intentions time will just pass by without anything really happening. I am inspired to create one of my own that will probably involve getting out of work early on Fridays, visiting museums, outdoor movies in Brooklyn and Bryant Parks, BBQs with friends, and Sunday morning walks with the furbabies. I am very glad I saw your post. Maybe I'll see you about. :) ~Inspector33.com~

  6. I used to hate Summer too... but since I moved to Germany and, therefore, live in a neverending Autumn, I miss it like crazy!

  10. 1) You are EXTRA gorgeous here, 2) you look incredible in a little white dress (hands down my favourite summer wardrobe piece, and this version is adorable), 3) what a wonderful list that is! I too always try to make a seasonal wish list of things I want to do (to stop it whizzing by before I know it), but I wish I could join you in doing some of those on your list!
