Summer Brights

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

What does summer mean to you? I love to ask myself questions like this as it helps me remember the exciting things that lay ahead in the coming months. Here is my list of what summer means to me:

1. Banish black until Winter and break out those Summer brights!
2. Bike rides on the boardwalk at the beach
3. Cocktails on rooftop bars where the sunshine can be enjoyed properly
4. Weekend getaways
5. Watermelon sangria
6. Backyard BBQs and picnics the beach
7. Light dinners that don't slow you down a'la simple salads and charcuturie boards
8. Sleeping with the windows wide open
9. Picking out a new bikini
10. Moving into our new house in the middle of June- wish us luck! 
11. Catching up books while laying in the grass at the dog park
12. The return of Dexter
13. Sneaking into hotel pools in downtown San Diego

So, I'd love to hear what Summer means to all of YOU too!


  1. Ocean, Beer, Barbecue, Tan, living in my bikini, traveling, and yes DEXTER!!!!!!!! Cannot wait!

  2. There will be more Dexter???!!! That's exciting... I didn't realise... I do assume you are talking about the series, not the return of a friend. :)
    As for summer... The long days, sunshine, warmth, strawberries, seaside in weekends, tea and dinner in a garden, puppy paws that don't need a wash after a long walk, silk dresses and sandals...
    Oh, all I need now is for the summer to come! :)

  3. Summer means to me: extreme heat, humidity, mosquitos...ok, KIDDING..not really. lol. Summer means ripe fruit in abundance (yummy peaches, strawberries, plums, nectarines) and long evenings. Neon nails, and cute sandals!

    Love all the brights you picked out!


  4. It is only 9:30 in the morning, but watermelon sangria sure sounds good!

  6. Ha ha...we are sneaking into the N. County pools - starting with La Costa last weekend. :)

  7. Loving the necklace and the sneaking into pools. We have one down the street that kids sneak into all the time.


  8. Thanks for brightening my day with those colors and hot pink is definitely my fave!!!
    Have a lovely weekend Holly!

  9. love your list of summer-ness! since i live in pennsylvania, summer to me means finally not having to bundle up and getting to dine outside more often! can't wait to grill out and have margaritas on the patio with the doggies running around. have a lovely weekend!

  10. Summer doesn't get terribly hot here in SF, as I'm sure you've heard, but I still like to get in the spirit too! Watermelon sangria to pretend it's warm sound like a plan to me, oh and there's napa- there's always napa!

  11. I love all of these items...mainly because they're neon!


  12. I love all things bright for summer! The skirt and necklace are my favorites. I am looking forward to spending time with my husband this summer! He just finished his first year of law school, so needless to say he hasn't been around much the past year. We are planning to relax and spend lots of time with our pups!


  13. The Summer, beautiful, swimming, sunroof open, hair blowing, mojitos and all things wonderful.

  14. So freakin exited about your new place! And summer always means a new bikini for me. I consider myself a collector ;)

  15. The pink drink cart so awesome, I need that in my life lol xx

  16. These all sound like things I do\would like to do! I forgot that you were a San Diegan, which drew me to check out your blog the very first time I did. Congrats on the new house. Prices are going back up-yay!- so now's the time to try and get in. I know lots of friends that are having a hard time bidding on a house- they keep getting outbid. I'm looking forward to this spring\summer here in San Diego. I also think I can find a good place for that pink cart serving table\cart! -Jessica L

  17. Haha I'm so excited for Dexter too!! Love that pink clutch!

  18. That clutch and scarf! So cute!! I love wearing scarves during spring and summer!

  19. I a have a mild obsession with neon colors, so I adore this.
    Especially that scarf and necklace.
