Summer is right around the corner and that means less layers and flowy dresses for me. Although it's technically still spring, we have been getting some nice 80+ weather days here in D.C. During the summer I always gravitate towards easy-peasy pieces because it's too hot and "ain't nobody got time for that."

Keep on reading today's post to see where I got this striped dress from and since this dress gave the summer feels I wanted to share my summer bucket list!

Black and white is one of my favorite color combos because it's a classic. I just knew I had to get this dress. The cherry on top was the stripe print because I'm a stripe fanatic. I once went through a stripe phase a long time ago, I think I wore stripes five days out of the week. LOL. I received this dress from Rainbow and unfortunately, it's sold out 😩 but I will link a similar one for you guys below. I added a burgundy clutch for a pop of color. This look is summer ready! It made me start thinking of all the things I want to do this summer. So I'm sharing with you guys my mini summer bucket list. 



My Summer Bucket List

1. Ride bikes - I haven't gotten on a bike in a long time but I would love to hop on a city bike with my husband and ride around the city.

2. Vist a winery - There are so many amazing wineries in MD and VA and I always get a living social coupon in my email. I hope this summer I get to visit one.

3. Have a picnic - My husband is not into picnics so I'm going to have to do this one with my ladies. It's so relaxing laying a blanket in the grass, eating and drinking wine in the summer breeze.

4. Travel to Charleston, NC - I don't have any big travel plans this year but I definitely want to drive down to Charleston for a weekend to see the beautiful scenery.

5. Go strawberry picking - I love strawberries and I love farms. This one is a must for me!

6. Road trip around to Maryland and Virginia - Now that we been living in D.C. for almost two years we realize there are so many places to visit in our surrounding states. I want to explore them all.

7. Try a spin class - I don't know why I'm so intimidated to try a spin class but I want to experience at least one class.

8. Brunch every other Sunday - If there was thing D.C. is great for its brunch! I think my ultimate goal is to try every brunch place in D.C. LOL!

9. Sunset from the Lincoln Memorial - I'm not trying to recreate the Wedding Crashers scene 😂 when they are hungover on the Lincoln Memorial steps but I would love to hang out with friends and watch the sunset by the Lincoln Memorial. I have always seen pictures and it looks so beautiful.

10. Go to a local fair - I LOVE fairs partially because I'm a scary cat when it comes to Six Flags type rides so I stick to local fair rides. I also love fair sweets and food!
