First things first; I want to stock my wardrobe full of dresses that I can just throw on right after I wake up and immediately walk outside into the summer sun. Just easy, lazy-day dresses in cute patterns or pretty solid colors that only need sandals and unkempt hair for accessories.
I picked a few from two of my favorite online shops, Need Supply and, of course, Urban Outfitters.
drawstring pocket dress, $68.00; tie dye tunic, $44.00; jungle dress, $78.00
all at Need Supply
printed plaid dress, $78.00; Kimchi Blue printed shirtdress, $55.00; Mirror/Dash tank dress, $58.00
all at Urban Outfitters
Secondly, I love playing all of my Rocky Votolato albums in the summer. His music is the perfect warm-weather companion while driving with the windows down. I think Rocky is severely underrated; he has the sexiest voice I've ever heard and is just an amazing musician and lyricist. His music just screams summer to me, I crave acoustic guitar and harmonicas when the weather is warmer.
I urge you guys to check him out, or at least momentarily un-pause the song at the bottom of this post =)
