Things to Look Forward to: Summer 2012

Yes, I'm well aware we are halfway through summer and I'm only just talking about what to look forward to now. I had this post waiting on the sidelines since June, but better late then never!

Woody Allen's new  movie To Rome with Love is at the very top of my list. I loved Midnight in Paris and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and set in Rome? Right up my alley:


Any Baby Boomer movie with Meryl Streep, you can count on me watching, and I really don't care that I'm only 26. It's Complicated was one of my favorite movies, so Hope Springs is sure to please:


We're headed to see the fam in Italia this year! CANNOT WAIT. Our little beach condo is in Calabria. It's the perfect relaxation spot. Nothing to do but beach it and eat. Perfecto!

I'm also trying to squeeze in a little jaunt to Paris. Please oh please let it happen:
I've been wanting to have a clam bake since January. I have to make this happen.

My hubster and I are trying our hands at making our own wine. Pinot Noir is currently fermenting in our dining room. A wine infused popsicle? Yes.

I'll provide more details on the wine making as we progress :)

I currently have a meyer lemon tree growing like crazy! I don't want to get my hopes up since I don't have the greenest of thumbs. I'd say my thumb is more of a black/green color. If they work out, I'll definitely be making lemon macarons and lemon creams: (p.s. I have a bowl of them sitting on my counter right now. If people think I grew them,  so be it.)

Shorts, shorts, and more shorts. I can't seem to get enough of them this year so far. They're so versatile and can be worn for the office or on the weekends:

I'm especially in love with crochet shorts. I scored a pair at Zara (on sale!). Here are some other super cute ways to wear them:

That's all for me! What are your hopes and dreams for the rest of your summer?  

Pin It!

  1. Italy will be fabulous! How exciting! Hopefully you can make it to Paris, it is one of my favourite spots. And I love the crochet shorts, I have a similar skirt from Club Monaco last year and yes, it really does go with everything.

    Have a great weekend!
