The First Day of Summer

Happy summer solstice all! It's the first day of summer and naturally, it's rainy and gloomy here. We have a week of rain ahead of us and one sunny weekend day (it's trying!). I am ready for cut-off shorts and eyelet tanks, bring colors, needed sunglasses (not just purse decorations) and bikini tops worn all day long. 

Apparently I'm going to have to wait a while for that... perhaps when I visit Hawaii in a few weeks! I'm drooling over bright colors for the first time in a while. Wearing navy and black and blue just feels old at this point in the year and I want some yellow in my wardrobe, some bright corals and pinks! These items above are largely on sale (great deals on the Madewell top and shorts!). I've also had my eye on and recently purchased from the (ending tomorrow) Steven Alan sample sale. I strongly urge you to check it out if you would love some of the gorgeous pieces at great prices (over 50% off!). 

I'm still on a trying-not-to-shop hiatus as we prepare to downsize finances with the move and Ben's medical school costs looming. It's going to have to be window shopping from afar at this point. What are you lusting over/dreaming about on this first day of summer?


  1. love the phone case! i can't believe it's just the first day of summer now. it always feels like it "starts" right after memorial day. i love wearing maxi's and cute sandals in the summer. which means i'm overdue for a pedicure! have a great weekend.
