Summer Stripes + Summer Bucket List

With today marking the official day of summer, and temps nearing the 90’s, there is no mistaking the sunny season is upon us. We spent all of yesterday outside…. starting at the beach and then ending it in the pool… and the rest of the week looks pretty similar. Given that, outfits like today’s will be omnipresent…. lightweight, easy to move in, and über comfortable…. because I have a summer bucket list I’m looking to complete… and comfort + style are key. When I saw this stripe tank, I knew it would be perfect for those warm summer days… and nights. It’s an easy, and quick, option for when I don’t know what else to wear…. and I love the cute tie at the shoulder. And, since my main goal this summer is to make memories with those I love, easy clothing options are key for helping us complete my summer bucket list… which I’m sharing below. Would love to know what’s numero uno on your list this summer!

1. Attend at least one concerts in the park…. little miss loves music, and I think I’d be willing to extend her bed time for a little dancing al fresco! 
2. Pack a picnic dinner (or just grab some to-go pizza…. huge fan of Blaze Pizza) and head down to Corona Del Mar… they have the prettiest overlook to catch a summer sunset. 
3. Take Harper to see the Disneyland Fireworks…. or just Disneyland in general…. 
4. Take a couple of short weekend trips to Palm Springs… we love staying at La Quinta Resort + Spa for a family friendly, and absolutely gorgeous, option. 
5. Make these delicious summertime popsicles… this year little miss can enjoy too.
6. Ohhhh, and these adult popsicle mimosas for a fun brunch… or just for a poolside treat.
7. Make s’mores with a twist…. instead of regular chocolate, maybe a Justin’s Peanut Butter Cup and some strawberries….
8. Take Harper out on a little boat ride…. Newport Beach has the cutest electric duffies and I think it would be such a fun afternoon with the family!
9. Protect my skin with this sunscreen…. and then enhance a tan with this self tanner.
10. Switch up my summer beauty and make-up routine…. thinking a trip to the beauty counter is in line… and looking for some neutral summer lip colors and eye shadows.
11. Get in a weekend getaway with TJ
12. Perfect my air dried waves…. I currently use this aprés beach spray.
13. Take Harper to get numerous Balboa Bars (YOLO)….
14. Spruce up our patio. We currently have these little foldable chairs (different print), and I would love to get these plant stands and put in some potted greenery. We have these string lights, and I’m thinking about adding this little fire pit and neutral outdoor rug.
15.  Pick up bike riding again, with a little toddler carrier in the back.
16. Take a family day trip to Catalina.
