Got a little bit of a late start to this month, because last week we took the entire week of 4th of July OFF. 

It was a much needed break to reset and get perspective on the work load so we can actually make a plan to enjoy the SUMMER. That is why we are focusing the theme of this month on "Summer Escape". I know that there are those out there who are blessed enough to get the the entire summer off of work to enjoy themselves, but for many of us, we do the best we can to get our own little escape in the sun in any little way that we can. See our suggestions for some easy things to help you with getting that summer relaxation on right. 

ps. be sure to check out the playlist this month, because it's the little things that get you in the mood





For me, summer is the pretty obvious things, bronzed skin, ocean air, warm evenings, and long days of light... how can you not love that?

A few of my favorite things (Vintage and sustainable, of course!) to enjoy July

An easy cotton slip dress

I love an esy slip dress to live in all summer ling. To throw on when I don't feel like actually getting dressed and throw on with sandals and a pretty scard or use it as a beach cover up. Airy and easy to beat the heat. We love this piece from Blossom Vintage be sure to checkout our interview with owner, Jamie Lee in SHOP TALK

Wide brim straw hat

We are a fan of all Brookes Boswell hats, but we love the white color of this one to keep it light and the wide brim.

The Alchemist

I am probably not the only one who has read this a million times, and every time I pick it up, it's new and worth it. Follow Santiago on his journey though the Desert and learn a lesson in love every time.
