summer necessities

Let me start off by saying that I realize it's only the end of April, and it's not technically summer yet. BUT, I'll also throw out the fact that I live in Texas which means that we've already had several summer weather days thrown in the mix, so give me a break. This really and truly has nothing to do with my 30before30 list, but I'm allowed to get off track every once in a while to focus on my list of summer necessities instead.
We've already had 90 degree days here, which leaves me slightly terrified when I think about the fact that we have to get through 2 more months before we reach the hottest days here in Austin. I'm predicting lots and lots of 105+ degree days.
So I've compiled a list of things I'm eyeballing for this summer, things that will make me happy about the 105 degree days instead of dreading them.

Bobbi Brown Beach Body Oil. It moisturizes you while giving you a sheen and making you smell delicious. You really can't go wrong with this stuff.

Cute, easy ways to keep my hair off my neck for those 100+ degree days.


The perfect maxi skirt to dress up or down.

Summer concerts.

Ideas for fun, hot backyard parties.

Surprise gifts from my husband! He got me the cute "for like ever" sign. And my feet looked summery with bright pink polish, turquoise sandals and white jeans. So why not, right?

Planning a visit to The Narrows, right here in TX. Why have I not been? 


  1. Where did Tucker find the sign? It's cute! Also, I looked up The Narrows and I read that it's not open to the public. Hope that info was wrong because I would love to go there as well. P.S. I love the sandals in the pic!

    1. He got the sign on some Etsy shop...I'll ask him and let you know!
      I really hope that info is wrong too, because I can imagine a lot of awesome pictures getting taken there.

  2. I like the cute summer hairstyles - they'd be a godsend in humid places :) Also, I had a question about your blog. Would it be possible for you to contact me via email? I look forward to chatting with you!

    1. Hi Anna! I'd be happy to contact you - I wasn't able to see an e-mail address when I clicked on your blogger link. You can e-mail me at if you'd like and I'll get back to you.
