The print of Summer + Link Up

When you think of Summer, what is the one print that jumps into your mind? 
 For me, it's gingham!  


Yesterday was the older kids last day of school so we are all now officially on Summer break!  For us that means, days at the pool, fun times with friends, evenings at the ball diamonds, and outside dinners.  I'm trying to be "on it" this summer and have a morning routine of sorts for the kids to do before we get into the fun activities of the day.  Reading, math, a little housework, practicing a skill, etc are all options.  I'm hoping to avoid the mornings where the kids sleep until 11, have a late breakfast, watch tv, play on their iPads or phone and then are ready for the day at 1.
For those of you with kiddos, what are your Summer strategies?








Dress: Loft, top version here // Heels: Sam Edelman love this lace up heel and this tassel lace up heel // Hat: J. Crew // Sunnies: B.P. ($12) // Necklace: Gabi Rae, more fabulous turquoise necklaces // Tote: Urban Expressions

    We still have 2 weeks of school left so I haven't figured out my summer strategy yet!

    1. Too sweet! Thanks so much. I love hats but don't wear them as often as I should - especially at the pool and ball games.

  9. Lovely dress. We are still working out a summer routine for our little kids. I know some academics will still happen (reading and some math) but other than that I am not sure. I love your routine and what you plan to do.
