Just over a week into the official start of summer, July is here! Here are TheBr!ghtSideBlog’s FAVORITE things about the month that proudly claims National Ice Cream Day(7/21)!
MUSIC: There is just something about the energy in Summer music! Here are the releases we’re looking forward to!
Miguels Wildheart & Bassnectars Into The Sun both released on 6/30 but that doesn’t mean they can’t get honorable mention!
Owl City Mobile Orchestra 7/10 Joss Stone – Water for Your Soul 7/31
SUMMER STAPLES: Sunnies, denim shorts & durable bags are a must!
I suggest trying out the flirty cat eye(above), but the classic aviator or wayfarer are great (& unisex) choices too! If you’re like me, you LIVE in the ever versatile denim short this time of year. Personalize them with patches & they can serve as a fun DIY project. Last but not least, a backpack loaded up with all your summer essentials is perfect to take to the beach or that music festival you’ve waited all year for!

Take time to enjoy the little things too. July is perfect for spending evenings on the patio with close friends, sipping sweet tea(if I have anything to do with it) & counting fireflies.
Life is like guacamole, it’s good!
