July

July.
I think I should make a must-do list for this summer, so that when September comes around (always sooner than I ever imagine) I won't think back and lament the things I didn't get around to doing.
At the top of the list: Ride a roller coaster, have cocktails at a roof top bar (in a cute cocktail dress), get out the wide angle lens and photograph one really good sunset, spend a long weekend at a touristy beach.

What is on your must-do list this summer?

This is so cute... I would have never paired a top like this with a pencil skirt but it looks awesome! And, what an awesome mani. Love the metallic.

Tashia said...

Purple, navy and white is such a great color combo. My summer to do list includes some beach time, pool time, fun boat rides, and lots of seafood:)

Courtney Erin said...

Well, I'm totally adding ride a roller coaster to my list now, because that just sounds fun.

I'm going to stay away from the roller coasters (me = huge weenie) but I'd love to have a rooftop cocktail or two. Also on my summer to-do list: make some homemade ice cream!

Frannie Pantz said...

Oh man I have a feeling this summer is really going to get away from me. With three kids, work and a wedding to plan, I am now deathly afraid of lists. But rollercoasters and rooftop cocktails do sound pretty amazing. I love your gingham blouse Lydia! And the hat really makes the outfit in my opinion!

Lisa said...

I adore the manicure!

Lab geek said...

Love, love, love your nails! And I think tomorrow I'll be wearing my blue skirt with my purple gingham shirt! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Shey said...

such a cool a breeze outfit for the Summer, love your nails too and your necklace.=D

Sandy a la Mode said...

such a cute outfit! and cocktails on a rooftop bar sounds fantastic!!

Ali Hval said...

Whoa, your nails are so cool. Is that silver and gold? I like very much. And your tiny birdy necklace is so cute. I have a thing for tiny birdies right now.

Your summer goals sound lovely. I don't really have any but to have a worry-free birthday and fourth of july weekend. And finish my class with an A, which I think I can do. :)

Fabulous. I've been considering a button down gingham top to add to my wardrobe. Now that I've seen it with a pencil skirt, it moves up on the priority list.

I adore the deep blues and purples in this! I love the idea of a lightweight pencil skirt, maybe that will go on my summer to-do list.

Though at the top of my list is: Not leave my New England vacation without having a truly satisfying lobster roll (last time I was home I had the MOST disappointing one)! :)

I love this outfit - the purple pencil skirt rocks.

I would also love cocktails in a cute dress on a rooftop bar but I don't think I should set my heart on it because it may not happen :) I'm glad it's a must for you!

silvergirl said...

great idea about the to do list
love this color combo

Good for you on making this to-do list. I've been wanting to practice my photography skills with a sunset in a touristic area of Panama called the Causeway, but I haven't got around to it yet.. Love your bird necklace btw, its adorable ;)

I love roller coasters even though it's been a while for me...When we went to Universal Studios in Singapore it was so empty that my sister and I went on the same roller coaster ride like five times haha. One of my "must do" is going to a flea market...although the rooftop bar sounds great too!!

Lynne DeVenny said...

I just thrifted a J.Crew gingham shirt in gray (I couldn't believe it) and can't wait to try it like your great look with a pencil skirt and wide belt.

Alex Elizabeth said...

I love the little bird necklace! Your J.Crew shirts are definitely some of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe.

And we can totally go to a rooftop bar and have overpriced cocktails sometime, haha.
