1) Summer nights
Although my parents’ wallets probably don’t appreciate it, I’ve been going out… a lot. More than I did last summer, especially during the week. There’s just something about grabbing dinners and drinks after a full day of work with old and new friends that makes the whole day feel complete.
2) Colored jeans
I recently whipped out a pair of bright blue Forever 21 jeans that I knew I would wear again someday after purchasing them in high school, and my red H&M pair have definitely been getting some use. Have you tried out this trend yet?
3) Being matchy-matchy
Last week, I purchased this blazer and these shorts from H&M in hot pink and wore them together to work the next day in an outfit similar to the one above. I was hesitant to wear the two pieces together for all of three minutes before I decided it was the happiest outfit I owned. The compliments (and stares) I received were endless, even though part of me felt like Corporate Slut Barbie. And, there’s just nothing that can put me in a better mood than an all pink (my favorite color) ensemble.
4) Gay marriage becoming legal in NY!
Finally, New York enters 2011 and legalizes gay marriage!
As much as I can’t stand walking through Times Square, hearing various accents wherever you go in NYC this time of year is beyond cool (especially when the accent is coming out of a cute guy’s mouth).
6) Facebook chat
…making it completely less creepy to randomly talk to people you haven’t spoken to in years, therefore providing me with endless entertainment every time I log in.
7) That perfect worn in sweater that’s ideal for cool summer nights
Mine is a big, comfy one from Forever 21 that looks perfect with shorts, jeans, cargo pants, etc. What’s yours?
8) “You and I” by Lady Gaga
I can’t get enough of this song.
9) Analyzing magazines
Last week, I spent a ton of time tagging magazines at work – especially the ones in our competitive set – from September issues to July ones. Basically, I know every single one inside and out, and I have no complaints (especially since that’s part of my PR homework).
10) Meeting new people
Going out as much as I have been has warranted meeting a ton of new people, which is one of my favorite things to do. Being in school all year, you don’t meet a ton of new people on a regular basis the same way you do going out to a bar or club, which is why summertime is the perfect time to extend your socializing.
