 Wait, it's Monday already?!
  • Serena & Lily for Paperless Post = A GREAT IDEA
  • Mackenzie Horan shared this delicious recipe for Strawberry Champagne and I'm in love. What a great idea for Fourth of July?!
  • I've been working on making a blog post about a new store at Mall of America called Fjällräven for my job, and am now obsessing over their backpacks. They're called Kånken's and come in a variety of colors, how amazing is this?!
  • Blake Lively is in Harper's Bazaar China next month, and she shot this gorgeous editorial!
  • I'm not crying, you are!
  • These DIY 4th of July cake toppers by Tell Love & Chocolate are so cute!
  • It was my parent's 35th wedding anniversary yesterday, and I found a fantastic photo of their wedding. How pretty is my mom's dress?
  • Levo League has updated their website, and it's so helpful! Find Your Purpose is something I will now be partaking in, and hoping it will help my career a little bit.
  • If you've ever read The Secret Garden or saw the movie in the 90s, there is a new YouTube adaption called The Misselthwaite Archives and it's SO GOOD! They are currently in need of some funding to continue the adventure, but I'm crossing my fingers they will reach their goal.
  • Can't get this song out of my head!
  • Eventually this shirt will be mine, eventually..
  • A Kate Spade 25% off sale? You can never say no to that, especially when it includes this purse.
  • A Thing Created has some new prints up in her shop! I'm loving this Sun Hat & Palms one that comes in two different versions. xoxoxo

I can't believe it's already summer, and we're almost done with June!  There's always something nice about planning your wardrobe for the summer, everything is just so much more easy and fun to pick out. I do sometimes like to stay with a lot of basics as necessities for my wardrobe, it's always nice to have a special item that will take you through the season! Now though, I just so happen to have five different ones that are my must-haves for this summer, and I hope you enjoy!

1. ASOS Curve Maxi Dress in Floral Print : The maxi dress has been incorporated into my daily style ever since 2012, and I haven't looked back since. It's my favorite item on this list, as it is so much fun to wear and there are so many variety of options! This dress from ASOS Curve is beyond gorgeous, and I love the color combo of black and richer shades of pink.
2. Amour Graphic Tee : Say what you mean, mean what you say! There's no better way to do that with a graphic tee, especially when it's something as romantic as 'Amour'. I've talked about graphic tees being a necessity for any wardrobe before, and that is why it's number two on my list for summer! You can dress it up or you can dress it down, either way you're sure to be comfortable no matter what.
3. Classic Black Leather Satchel : As anyone knows, handbags are my thing. People may be obsessed with shoes, but I'm head over heels (PUN INTENDED) for handbags. Whether they are shoulder bags, clutches, a messenger bag or even a tote, I will fall in love them no matter what. I have probably 20+ of a variety of these, but this one from Cambridge Satchel is my new favorite. It's not only a must-have for summer, but for all year round.
4. GabiFresh D/DD Cup Black Underwire Mid-Waist Bikini : While I may not be swimming any time soon this summer, I've been lusting over the Gabi Fresh collection for Swimsuits for All ever since the preview images came out. I mean, how flattering and sexy are these swimsuits?! I don't know if I'd ever be able to rock one, but this gorgeous black two-piece is something I want to try.

5. Studio Sweetheart Neckline Jumpsuit : A jumpsuit?! On my must-have list? What is this revelation I'm having?! It's literally only because I'm in love with the silhouette of this one from Eloquii, and how flattering it must be on any body type. I love the easiness of what this jumpsuit must feel like and if there's ever a time to take a risk, it's during the summer! You never know what could happen.

Today has marked a week of being twenty-six years old, and while that's not anything too special I thought today's Fashion Friday post would be the perfect time to share photos from last Friday! It's so nice how I came about the dress I found for my birthday, I was literally looking the day of for something special to wear when the time came to go out. I happened upon this really great dress from Forever21+ and I'm so obsessed with it. It's not something I would normally stop and actually commit to purchasing, but it was a blessing in disguise that I was on the hunt for something quickly. The color and print are so great, and I feel absolutely sexy in it. That is SO RARE for me, and I love it.
Being able to feel sexy on your birthday is pretty important, and I enjoyed owning it the entire night. Betty Danger's Club was so much fun, even though we had to wait almost two hours to actually eat, but I'm so grateful for the friends that were able to make it. We had some insanely spicy food, tasted some good alcohol and rode the Ferris Wheel while the sun was setting. So lucky that it was such a beautiful night and I could definitely use more of like them in the future. It was all in all, just a good birthday that was very appropriate for the age I turned into.
