Elle’s Edit: Summer Bucket List


Ah summer. Is there anything better? Well yeah, summer vacation but as you know that doesn’t necessarily happen in the “real world” *rolling my eyes*

To be honest with y’all, I have a serious love hate relationship with summer. Don’t get me wrong, I love the warmth over the freezing cold but living in NYC it has made me despise the heat because of the constant sweating, over crowded subways, hot pavement, and did I mention sweating?! (Editor’s Note: This is why Elle and I get along so well. We are forever complaining about sweating.) What I LOVE about summer is the endless sunshine, happy people, summer fridays (PRAISE DA LORD) and ice cream trucks on every corner. This will be my third summer here in NYC (I can’t believe it) so I want to try to make it as fun as possible. I was reading a couple of blogs and going on Pinterest and saw so many people come up with a Summer Bucket list and I wanted to do the same!

Summer Bucket List:

  1. If outdoor seating is an option, take it (Editor’s Note: Summer Friday…it’s on)
  2. Try to eat lunch outside every day at work (unless I have a meeting)
  3. Try 10 new restaurants that I have never been to (Editor’s Note: SO INTO THIS)
  4. Try 5 new rooftop bars that I have never been to (Editor’s Note: Should we go to Pod 51/Salvation Taco…..)
  5. Go to multiple baseball games (I’m going on Monday!)
  6. Take a day trip to the beach (everyone keeps talking about Rockaway)
  7. Go to the tennis US Open (Editor’s Note: You’re alone on this one)
  8. Read 3 books (would love your recommendation) (Editor’s Note: I TOLD YOU TO READ ANDI’S BOOKS)
  9. Actually start running again (Editor’s Note: NO)
  10. Volunteer
  11. Find an ice cream spot in the city that I love (Editor’s Note: I GOT YOU)
  12. Go for a picnic in Central Park (Editor’s Note: OKAY FINE)
  13. ……Drink lots and lots of rosé (Editor’s Note: OKAY DOUBLE FINE)

Things I have planned:

  1. Go to Veuve (DANA AND ALLIE, I AM SO EXCITED)
  2. Go to Charleston/Hilton Head
  3. Go to Naples, Florida  (visiting my family the end of June/early July)
  4. Go to the US Open (bought tickets for my dad for Father’s Day)
  5. Go to The Hamptons (Can’t wait to go with my fav girls)
  6. Go to Taylor Swift concert (I AM SO EXCITED)
  7. Go to Connecticut for a weekend trip to visit my BFF

What do you all have planned this summer?! I can’t wait to hear!
