Hello Summer!

I'm so excited for summer 2013! During every school year, i make a "bucket list" with all the adventures i want to have that summer. When winter's getting me down, it's so fun to pull it out and remind myself what i have to look forward to. Scroll to the bottom of today's post to see mine, and maybe you'll be inspired to start your own!

Today's outfit is focused around my two favorite trends of summer 2013- ombre and circle skirts! Circle skirts are my current obsession- they're flattering for so many shapes and sizes, and with their fullness and high waist they create an elegant silhouette.  I'm currently in New Mexico, so i also styled the look around the Southwest.

New today, I will be posting makeup along with clothing brands. Enjoy, and perhaps you can wear a similar look as you  have  your own summer adventures!

Tip! Always apply lip balm before lipstick to keep lips moist and color even. My favorite is Burt's Bees beeswax lip balm.

My Summer 2013 Adventure List:
  • Give myself a makeover so i look totally different for a day to see how people interact with me (Goth Jenny anyone??)
  • Learn how to surf
  • Take a spontaneous road trip- no planning, maps, or cell phones allowed
  • Redo my room and fill it with inspiration
  • Learn how to sail a sailboat
  • Send letters to everyone that inspires me- Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Lea Michele...
  • Go on a proper picnic
  • Learn how to make sushi
  • Dig out my old easel and paints, find a beautiful place to set up, and pretend I'm an artist for a day
  • Learn how to make a real Italian cappuccino
  • Go to a drive- in movie
Don't forget to let me know what your favorite current trends are and post your summer bucket list in a comment!

XOXO Jenny


  1. Love the pics Jenny!!!! Fifth down is my favorite.

    Okay your list is awesome.

    Instead of a new makeover, I want you to ho all natural and try a hippy look. Long skirt, hair frizzy/ undone, hemp bling, and rub essential oils so you smell the part. Also tie dye headband would be cute.

    Also, we are going to fulfil the drive-in movie, real picnic, and learning how to surf together, k?

  2. Stunning as always Jenny! Your blog is incredible. You guys always have a place to stay here if you wanna learn to surf in Hawaii!!

  3. Thanks so much you two! Michi, we are going to have so much fun when i get home;) And Laurel, that sounds wonderful! Someday!:))
