Happy hump day! If you can’t tell from my recent outfits on Instagram, I am currently in the process of transitioning my wardrobe to Fall. I’ve haulted all Summer shopping to turn my focus towards sweaters and boots. This colorful midi dress from Ocean Isle is one of the last Summer looks I’ll shoot this year (insert crying tear emoji). BUT, that means lots of cozy layers and fun fall accessories like scarves and fedoras!
Since the blog will slowly be turning its attention to Fall, I thought it would be fun to share the 5 things I hope to do before Summer completely comes to an end. See below:
- Go on my last summer swim – whether it’s the pool, lake, beach, it will be a while before I’m able to jump in warm water again. Drew and I are spending Labor Day at the lake, so will be a great time to knock this off my list. 🙂
2. Eat smores by a campfire – One of my favorite things to do in the Summer, though if I’m being honest I’m guilty of doing this in the winter too! It’s just not as enjoyable because you have to wrap up in blankets to enjoy being outside. We will be doing this over Labor Day as well!
3. Attend a baseball game – There is nothing like watching a baseball game under the Summer sun with a hot dog in hand. I’ve only been to 1 game this Summer and it was only a couple of minutes so this deserved a spot on the list.
4. Go for a run outside – Once the cold weather hits, it’s back to treadmill running. I’m going to get a couple outside runs in before Fall comes knocking.
5. Watch a lake sunset by boat – This one is for my mother-in-law. She loveeesss lake sunsets. They just purchased a pontoon boat for their house at the lake, and we love going on afternoon rides and watching the sun go down. Another thing that also happens in the Winter but isn’t as enjoyable or beautiful as in the Summer.
6. Visit a farmer’s market, and eat a home grown tomato sandwich – I blame the Southern in me for this must do Summer bucket list item. Tomatoes are SO much better from the farmer’s market, or better yet grown in your own garden. I look forward to eating them every Summer. Drew and I live in the city, so the closest thing we have to a garden is our local farmer’s market, which I don’t mind one bit.
7. Paint my nails a bright color – In a couple of weeks it’s back to burgundys and grays on my nails. I’m going to get one more visit at the nail salon and paint my nails pink or coral, has to happen to soak up my last bit of Summer.
8. Indulge in my favorite watermelon cocktail – I just recently discovered these but they’re SO much better with fresh watermelon puree and juice. It’s a spicy watermelon margarita. I mix up my own adding ingredients here and there, but this recipe HERE is very closet to how I make them.
What’s on your Summer bucket list? I’d love to hear! Leave me a comment below.
