Summer Favorites & Vera Bradley Giveaway


It’s finally starting to feel like summer in Dallas, so its time to get out and enjoy the weather. Around this time of year, you can normally catch me on a patio somewhere sipping a mojito and laughing with friends. In addition to that, there are a lot of other things that scream Summer to me! Here are a few of my favorites:

My summer isn’t complete until I’ve checked off everything on that list! Outdoor concerts are so much more fun to me than indoor! They just SCREAM summer! Bonfires are an essential because s’mores. Flowy dresses are essential because this Texas heat is NO joke…and they’re pretty. This is one of my faves for the summer from Forever 21:

Day-drinking is another one of my faves and it is SO underrated. Not only do you get to bed in time after day drinking, but your hangover sucks less. (Just drink a lot of water to keep hydrated.) Bright print shorts are perfect for summer too because they’re cute for a lazy day at the beach, or a fancy night on the town with your girls!

This is a total #TBT to last summer when I rocked the bright colored shorts!

A lot of people think I’m crazy for saying I love laying in the sun. But I love the way it feels and how it makes me nice and dark like my mama! 🙂 And what better place is there to soak up the sun than on a road trip to the beach with your bestie? No matter if I’m taking a trip to the beach to relax or just to Ft Worth to stock up on beef jerky, road trips are fun no matter the distance!

A lot of us will be having cookouts and watching fireworks this weekend, with it being the 4th of July. That makes for the ultimate summer! I plan on going to Kaboomtown in Addison to celebrate. It’s supposed to be the 3rd best firework display in the whole  United States so no way would I miss out! Because it’s so busy in Addison around that time, I’ll be walking everywhere to avoid the headache from traffic. Luckily I live close so I don’t have to take a bunch of stuff with me. I will be carrying a cute colorful wristlet so that I don’t have to keep up with a bunch of stuff.

Which brings me to the GIVEAWAY!!!!!

I’m giving away not only a Vera Bradley Zip ID Case, but also these adorable earrings! I received both of them from The Vintage House last week when I attended the Tea Party. But because I am already obsessed with/have a bunch of them, I figured I would let one of my lovely readers have them!

Just enter the giveaway below! I really hope you win!
