I can not believe I am sitting here, already reminiscing over this summer! Since my birthday just past this week that means summer is coming to an end. So the plan is, how can we make it last. My favorite way to make a feeling last longer is to find a way back to those memories through music. This summer was full of epic tunes and of course that music inspired festival style. So looking back making summer last longer to me, is to listen to my summer playlist on repeat. So I have teamed up with Malibu Rum to make the summer festival feeling last right into Fall! I have never shared a playlist before because I feel like it is so personal as it does feel like sharing my dearest memories with the world. But here it is, my summer playlist. The songs that make me think of sunny beach evenings with friends, with a delicious Malibu drink in hand, my go to is the Malibu White Sangria, bike rides around the city, road trips through the mountains and jumping into lakes and of course most of my favorite tunes where the ones I got to see live at the festivals I went to this season. Not to forget those travel songs that are on repeat while in a tropical destination that make you smell the sunscreen and salt on your skin all over again! Ah yes those memories. Would love if you shared your favorite summer song in the comments below as well. Share some summer love! Hope you love mine! Keep dancing and keep feeling those festival vibes babes.

A beach day is better on a round towel and Tofino Towel Co is the destination for my favorite summer accessory that needs to become your new sandy sidekick. Plan your vacay now.

I am all for making summer last as long as possible. I can not believe we are nearing the end or maybe we can just make a pact to make it last as long as possible. One of my good friends said that her goal was to not wear pants this winter. I agree. Lets make it happen! So far this summer my main squeeze to the beach has been my Tofino Towel Co. round towel. I love that this one pictured is black and white with the coolest boho print on it. So many people ask me where this one is from so here it is, it is the original west coast round towel, named after my favorite spot to escape to Vancouver Island. So either stash it for next summer, make it the reason why you go on a vacation when it is raining on the entire Pacific North West. Also, while I am talking about favorite places to go locally during the summer, I will finally share my favorite beach in Vancouver. This little spot is past Kits beach. Keep walking on the pretty sea wall towards UBC, down a beautiful path past the yacht club and all of a sudden you will stumble upon a beach that seems private. Its not. Its the best spot, with the best sunsets and it never is to crowed which I like. Perfect for romantic beach picnics and so is this little round towel. My other go to print that I decided on adding to my beach rotation is The Chesterman print.
