Welcome to July, you hooligans. As most middle-aged folk will tell you, June flew by, and now we are truly in the heart of summer. Naturally, it is time for a wardrobe update and pop culture refresh. As always, I’ve got your back. Keep reading to feel like the cool kid on the block.
RVCA Moda Romper
2017 is all about rompers (and romp-hims, the male version of rompers). This brand new RVCA Moda Romper is simply perfect. It has pockets! With a bohemian and modern flair, this loose-fit, black and white jumper will keep you cool and classy in the July heat. I love this piece because it can so easily be transformed from a daytime, casual romper with Vans to a date night look with a sleek pair of heels. So, go ahead; grab it here.
Amp up your summer playlist effortlessly this month with a few of my new favorite singles.
- “4:44”- JAY-Z feat. Beyonce | Finally, Jay-Z addresses his mistakes involving infidelity, violence, and absence. This entire new album is a confrontational exposure of the true Jay-Z, and I find it rather beautiful. The album’s title song, “4:44,” is a smooth jam that makes you love Beyonce more and dislike Jay-Z a little less. Listen and learn.
- “You and I”- Toro y Moi | Lyrical and electric, Toro y Moi is back with a new song that captures both the beauty of his soft voice as well as his eloquence and rhythm. It is a gracious single, ideal for a peaceful car ride or a relaxed night at home.
- “Fall Back in Your Arms”- Guytano | If you have yet to listen to this new, young alternative band from my hometown in Minnesota, you are missing out. The band’s latest release is romantically rhythmic and emotionally raw. It is the perfect balance of rock and alt-pop.
- “Keep Me Sane”- Kacy Hill | This artist may make you raise your hands above your head in praise because her voice is just that enchanting. Kacy Mill’s latest hit is suave and sanguine, certain to force the feels on you. Listen and fall in love with the pureness of Mill’s vocals.
Vans Sk8-Hi Slim Shoes
So, I’ve just bought my second pair of these high-top Vans, because I have completely worn through my first pair. These sleek, all white kicks are edgy, classic, and comfortable. These babies have accompanied me to school, work, music festivals, and parties. They’re a blank canvas just waiting for you to fill them with adventure and wander. Check the Vans out here.

Celebrate National Ice Cream Month
Need I say more? The month of July is dedicated to the decadent gift that is ice cream, so you best be indulging in the sweet treat all month long. Reward yourself after a long bike ride, cool off after a day of sun, or lie in bed all day with a pint right by your side. Want to make sure you’re eating the best possible scoop? Check on this list of America’s top ice cream shops here.
Music, clothes, boards, and food. Tell me what more you could possibly need. Please, though, tell me, because I really have no idea. That is my life. Anyway, may your month of July be sprinkled with joy and topped with memories that will forever put a smile on your face. Go spread some good vibes.
