Happy Monday, babes- hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Today’s post is a super fun one, so I’ll do my best to keep this part short. If you’re here for the giveaway, just keep scrolling down & you’ll see it! As most of us are getting out of school right now & summer’s right around the corner, I wanted to share my summer bucket list with all of you.


Dress Free People (55% off!) // Hat Francesca’s // Clutch Francesca’s // Sandals Tory Burch // Bracelets Kendra Scott // Sunglasses Ray Ban

Since high school, I’ve written one almost every year and they’re always so fun to check off throughout the summer months. It’s also a good way to come up with ideas for the summer weekends when you find yourself with nothing to do! So without further ado, here’s my bucket list for Summer 2017 🙂

Try a new cuisine.

Go fishing.

Finally get around to starting a Youtube channel to go along with the blog. (Y’all, I’ve been wanting to do this for forever.)

Take a spontaneous trip.

Go to Summer Lee Drive in Rockwall, Texas. You guys- there’s literally a street named after me! (JK, but it’s a pretty crazy coincidence if you ask me.)

Go to a concert.

Reconnect with an old friend.

Go strawberry picking.


Actually utilize the pool.

Read a good book.

What’s on your summer 2017 bucket list!?

P.S. Scroll down to the bottom for the giveaway!

***GIVEAWAY TIME!!!*** I just wanted to say thank you to all of my readers, old & new, who have followed me through this journey!

    I need to clean out my closet and revamp it! I also want to visit the iconic Prada Marfa for a pic and get my mom’s old LV I love so much restored.

    That clutch is so pretty. I really want to make it to the shore at least once this summer. I have a few books I’d like to read and some chores to get done in the yard.

    Hey girly love the post as always!! That’s such a cute idea to make a summer bucket list! Some things on mine are to make a DIY macrame wall hanging and go thrift shopping to find some furniture to repaint! After reading this, I think buying that purse is on my list too!
