so long sweet summer

i really hate that summer has to end. i love summertime and the sunny bright clothing that comes with it. there is something magical about flowy clothing and cool summer nights that makes me feel like a kid again - minus the awesomeness of having three months to run around and play. so, to keep that backyard barbeque, firefly catching, sunshine soaking attitude going, i put together my favorite clothing pieces that still make me feel like i can hold onto summer a little while longer (especially here in florida...)

how great is that heart sweater? i'm so in love. find all the awesomeness in the links below and leave a comment about your favorite summer pieces!

weekend fun is always better when it's free!

as newlyweds, matt and i are really trying to save money and pay off old debts before we start the exciting journey into parenthood. patience family members, patience.

so, on the weekends we try and do fun things together without breaking the bank. one of my favorites - GARAGE SALES!

maybe i'm just weird, but i love seeing other peoples junk and if i'm lucky enough, their houses. over the weekend, we looked up all the saturday morning garage sales and made a list of their locations, times, details, etc and set out on our local adventure. luckily we got up early enough to make it to many of them before they closed shop in the ridiculous florida afternoon sun. if you follow me on instagram (which you totally should at betterwithjune) then you might have seen some of these pictures...


most of them had the expected nonsense - old games, ugly purses, furniture from the 80's, but some of them had some awesome nostalgic pieces too. seeing bits of peoples lives really makes me happy, like they are sharing something special with me.

                               

one of the estate sales was held inside the persons house, and as i'm bubbled with excitement over seeing the house and likely frightened the person holding the sale. whatevs. it was a great way to spend a saturday with matt and it didn't cost a thing! what are your favorite weekend freebies? leave me a note in the comments!
