Summer Fun

Summer is here…well almost.  For me it is – at least in spirit – as I am ready to get rid of this rainy weather we’ve been experiencing in DC lately.  And since I can’t quite get my daily dose of sunshiny Vitamin D just yet, I can get into the summer mood by thinking about the top 10 things I adore about summer:

  1. BBQing with friends
  2. Relaxing by the pool with a good book
  3. The Beach (minus the sand – it gets everywhere!!)
  4. Flip flops
  5. Sun-dresses
  6. Lots of sunshine! (Rain, rain go away)
  7. Roadside stands with fresh fruits and veggies
  8. Traveling / Road trips
  9. Longer days to jam full of fun
  10. Outdoor concerts and movies

Hopefully, many of you feel the same way.  If you’re looking for a way to get into the summer fun mindset (other than changing the background of your computer screen to a tropical island), then go ahead and jot down your top 10 list.  And while you’re at it, check out these styles that are sure to compliment your BBQ, beach trip or pretty much any awesome summertime group event!

Foldable Can Koozie Foldable Can Koozie – great for keeping your drink cold while out in the hot sun.
Toppers Beach Bag Toppers Beach Bag – pack everything you need for a day at the beach or pool in this roomy drawstring bag.
Solid Frisbees Frisbees – amp up the fun factor of your event with a custom flying disc.
Bella Girly Tank Gildan Ultra Cotton Tank or Bella Girly Tank – who needs sleeves when it’s 100 degress?!

What’s in your summer top 10 list?!

Distressed T-Shirts

I love the distressed look that’s out right now.  Comfy and worn in – yes please!  And that’s why I love the Canvas Distressed Vintage T.  It’s super soft and slightly abraded along the collar and hems.  So, basically you can look trend-right without looking destitute!

Baby Ribbed T-Shirt

A couple months ago, I wrote about the wonders of polyester t-shirts in order to give you loyal blog readers a better sense of the fabric and why we love it.  Well I’m back to drop some more knowledge on you.  And even though this one goes out to the ladies, as this fabric is used in primarily for women’s styles, you guys are always welcome.  Let’s explore the world of….Baby Rib Knit.

Bella New Ladies Styles

I love Bella as much as the next person.  I mean, c’mon – they really know how to make a high quality, trend-right t-shirt!  But seeing as I’m not what you would call petite, I find myself wishing that Bella would make shirts that are a tad bit bigger so I’m not always having to size up.  Well I must have a fairy godmother because Bella’s newest styles are made to fit everyone, including me!  The new Bella Ladies Jersey T and Bella Ladies V-Neck T both offer a more generous fit without making you feel like you’re wearing a sack.  The silhouettes are feminine, the lightweight cotton is super soft, and they’re available in sizes S to 2XL.  Basically, it’s the perfect T no matter what your body type.  But don’t just take my word for it – check them out on real women i.e. the other two-thirds of the Merchandise team, Nikki and Kate.  (Did I mention they’re good sports?!)

Washington Nationals 2011 Season

I love March Madness! But apparently it doesn’t love me this year. So, after having my bracket completely annihilated, I’m happy to be moving on to the upcoming season of America’s favorite past-time – Baseball! Popcorn, peanuts, talking smack to visiting teams…I mean…cheering for your favorite team.
