june edit.

Another new month! This is one of my most open summers in years. No weddings, no trips, no showers, no major events. While I like having "something to look forward to" as much as anyone, it's kind of nice to have the luxury of time—to fill it how I want and to have a minute to think about how I want to fill it, rather than just flying on autopilot from one obligation to the next.

My June Edit is really tight. I only included the REAL items on my real life wish list. My old pitcher started leaking months ago, and I need a new one for the strawberry watermelon Crystal Light I just bought (hello yum!). I was using a cheap-o acrylic one from Target, but want to class it up with version 2.0. Crate & Barrel's reef design comes in coordinating tumblers so you can eventually complete the set. I see this pitcher as an investment I'll have for years and be proud to serve guests from (more than just lemonade).

Round sunglasses are the it-style of the season, and I love the hippie, relaxed vibe for summer. Colored lenses make this pair a good alternative to my current black and tortoise frames. Sundresses are the unofficial uniform of June/July/August and I rarely wear them! If I had this effortless "drop-over-your-head" embroidered number, though, I think that record would turn right around (also love the Onyx!). Accessorize the pretty look with Dior Sunwashed nails (Byrdie declares it "the color everyone will be wearing this summer"—very reminiscent of this post from my archives!) and gold gladiators—I love how the lace-up detail and in-your-face metallic shade is balanced by a flat sole.

What's on your June agenda? Make it a good one!
