July is for…

Old Navy boho jumpsuit and pineapple July

Oh I wish Lily’s jumpsuit came in my size! So many cute Summer clothes, so little time. Here’s what I’m all about this month. What about you? How do you do July?


Eating / Strawberries, blueberries, cherries, salads, popsicles and ice cream

Drinking / Strawberry-watermelon slushies and watermelon cotton candy slushy floats

Sharing / Summery recipes from Lick Your Plate (here on the blog next week!)

Trying / To get back to the gym (Maybe. I don’t know. I haven’t been since last October.)

Playing / With some super cute pool floats (you’ll see them on the blog next week!)

Starting / To paint the dining room (from pale grey to a fresh white)

Finishing / Painting the dining room (it shouldn’t take me more than a couple of days)

Reading / The Light Between Oceans (the read-a-long starts tomorrow!), Modern Lovers and I Let You Go

Reviewing / Miss Moon: Wise Words from a Dog Governess, Dave Eggers’ forthcoming Heroes of the Frontier, and maybe Modern Lovers and I Let You Go (I’ll see how many I can get to) 

Remembering / Our trip to Tremblant last July

Wearing / Breezy cotton Joe Fresh dresses, chinos and flip flops

Watching / The Change-Up, Bloodline and Orange is the New Black

Wanting / These soup mugs and trays from Chapters’ new Fall line (yes to all the Fall things!)

What are you reading/starting/wearing/watching this July?
