What I Love About Summer

The summers in New York are short, like really short. This May was still a chilly, cloudy and just a damp kinda crappy month. The warmer sunny days didn’t really arrive until a couple weeks ago. By the end of August, you can feel the cooler fall days arriving. I spend most of the year dreaming about the warmer summer months and when it finally arrives it’s one of the best times of the year.

I like to treasure every single moment of it hoping it will never end. I just love summer, I still get that same excitement I did as a little kid on the last day of school. Who cares that I’m 30 and I still have to work every day during the summer? It’s still magical and perfect. There are so many things I love about it. In honor of the official start of summer last week, here are a few things I absolutely love about summer.

THE LONGER DAYS   Waking up in the sunlight and coming home from work and still seeing the sun is a wonderful feeling. Hello, pretty skies and sunglasses!

SITTING OUTSIDE I like to get outside as much as possible during these weeks. Even if that’s just sitting outside after work with a glass of wine, Rocco, and the husband.

How cute is this wine glass? I bought a set from a winery on Eastern Long Island but I found the set on Amazon.

ALL THE SUMMER STUFF Flowy dresses, shorts, sandals, maxi skirts, sandals, pineapple prints. I love it all. If I had an unlimited budget, I’d buy an entirely new wardrobe just for these short summer months but sadly I do not. I’ll just have to be content making wish lists and maybe only purchase one or two items? Maybe three?? Check out my summer wish list here.

ICED DRINKS I think it’s nearly impossible for me to ever have enough iced coffee or teas when it’s hot out. I crave iced drinks every single day. I make my own iced coffee a lot most of the time but I do make Starbucks trips on my lunch breaks to treat myself. My favorite drink from Starbucks has to be a soy green tea latte!

ROOFTOP BARS & RESTAURANTS I love having a view of the city while sipping on drinks and eating. Who doesn’t love a pretty view of New York City?

    I have a love/hate relationship with summer. It’s so hot and humid here in the South. It usually is summer from May until October. I do love all of the activities outside and the rooftop bars and whatnot. Our winters are pretty mild, so it’s pretty likely that you could sit outside in the winter months. I do love how it gets dark much much later!

      All restaurants should have outdoor seating in the summer!

  8. I love the loooong days of summer. I also like how happy people are in general. It’s so evident that we need the awesome energy that the sun provides.

      I absolutely agree! People are happier during the summer months. It’s no fun being stuck inside all winter in the dark!

    I usually am not a huge fan of the heat but this summer has been quite mild and I’ve been finding myself getting out more than usual. I think this year I will actually be sad when the snow comes! Also, your dog is adorable.

    This is how summers are in the PNW too so I hold onto summer days as tightly as I can!

  13. It is quite the opposite here in Houston, feels like summer for like 8 months. Although, rooftop bars would make the summer quite fun.

    I love the iced drinks and longer days. The weather is a tad too hot here in Texas though. You can’t be outside that often.

  16. I love just being able to go outside. I live in CT so I totally get just having a short period of time during the summer months.

  17. Iced drinks are the BEST! I loved reading your list. I totally agree with you, summer is the best season. 🙂

  18. I’m pretty sure your summers aren’t as short as the UK!! haha we get about 2 days of sun and that’s it! Booo! I went to NY last summer (August) and loved every second of it – especially the roof top bars. We went to Gallows Green if you’ve been there? We tried to get a booking at Mr Purple but couldn’t 🙁 xxx

    Hey Krystal,

    Great post and LOVE your blog. One of my favourite things about summer are the longer days. I love being out at 9:30pm and it’s still light out. And of course all the summer drinks.

  21. I also love summers. It is so much fun to go out and soak in sun, enjoy cold drinks and shakes and travel around.

  22. I love summer too, although our summers here in Texas are a lot longer! :p I especially love pool time and iced coffee. 🙂
