Fun Little Treats to Beat the Heat!
This year, St. Louis had approximately one single week of spring and jumped straight into sweaty summer weather. I don't know about you, but that makes me suuuuuuper annoyed. Spring is my favorite, but I have to totally switch gears and suddenly get excited about the hottest days of the year. The things I love about the summer are swimming and evening get-togethers outside and.....that's about it! Haha. I'm not crying, you're crying. I'm thinking a little retail therapy will help me embrace the sweltering heat and maybe even look forward to the sun every day. As my friend, Jackie would say, #summerforever!!!!
I'm a mom now, so obviously I need these. I've never felt very comfortable in short shorts, and these seem like a very happy medium.
In another life, I'm all alone except for my birds. I'm a bird lady and I love it.
For those warm, laughter-filled summer nights on the deck with friends!
If your front door needs a little love, a fresh doormat is always a welcome addition! (Get it?)
To tote your goodies back home from the summer farmer's market.

When you're tired of showing your legs to everybody and their mom, but still want to feel the breeze.
The perfect, happy home for your summertime succulents! They'll never be lonely because they'll live right by a friendly lil gazelle.
I mostly just love ceramics, so this isn't exactly summer themed. I'm Allison and I'm addicted to handmade stuff.
I just bought this the other day and I want to wear it every day. It's super flattering, and doesn't have those weirdly low arm holes like so many tanks do these days.
If you have window boxes like I do, you need to getchoself a petite watering can like this one. I don't love being near death every time I have to water, because I'm trying to lift a 100 pound watering can.
Nothing says "resort wear" like a gorgeous silk scarf just tossed around your neck or bag at the last second. Casual, but refined.
Fresh cushions for a new season!
For all those ears of corn you're probably grilling up, and all those summer salads.
Tacos = summer = tacos.
Does anyone out there have sunnies that make it through an entire year? I'm apparently horrible at keeping track of sunglasses or preventing scratches. OH DARN MORE GLASSES.
