Summer Essentials

An awesome California blogger, Lyndsy, over at Yellow Brick Blog has been featuring different bloggers "summer essentials" all week. I thought I'd join in on the fun and tell you all about some of my summer essentials.

*What one item can you not live without this summer?

This summer I can't live without my black ray-ban sunglasses (ok, mine are fakies, but the real ones are so cute) or my tan rainbow sandals. Both scream "summer at the beach" which is where I plan to spend every day off this summer.

*What are you craving for summer 2009?

This summer I'm craving a week at a beach house in Newport Beach. I don't think it's actually going to happen but I think it would be an amazing summer vacation. I picture spending all day at the beach and all night grilling out, drinking cocktails, and enjoying friends.

*What is your essential summer album for 2009?

Anything by one of my new favorite bands, Vampire Weekend, they are the perfect southern California summer-lovin band.

What are you summer essentials? Let me know, I'd love to find some new things to try and new bands to love this summer!


  1. just found your blog and I think it is so cute. I grew up in LA but I live/work in the IE now. Still so happy to be in socal. i am gonna check out this band, I have been in a music rut, thanks for sharing.

  2. BTW I lived in the midwest for seven years for Grad School and although I loved notre dame, I am back to be in cali, so glad you are enjoying becoming a cali girl.
