Somehow it's June and we're halfway through the year. San Francisco doesn't really get summer weather (Mark Twain said it best) but I'm still going to try to make a few changes to enjoy the longer days and summer vibes.

I always gravitate towards lighter reads in the summertime, and last year I loved Emma Straub's The Vacationers. I just downloaded her new book, Modern Lovers, and can't wait to start it this weekend. Read a review here.

This is a great read on getting out of a rut.

I need to pick up a new swimsuit, and The Outnet has my new favorite line Solid and Striped on sale. And I may need to pick up these striped pants for lounging this summer.

p.s. Alexa and I read every comment from her heartfelt post earlier this week. I'll miss her posts too but am so happy to have her living nearby and so thankful for you those of you who will keep reading.
