I absolutely LOVE the summertime. It has been my favorite season since I was a little kid itching for that last school bell of the year to ring so that I could run out of the building and never look back. The season always makes the best life memories, from summer romances to traveling to getting much needed quality time with friends. I typically make a long list of summer activities that I have to complete before the season ends, including making a trip to the beach, having a boat day on the lake with friends, hosting outdoor BBQs, eating way too many popsicles and ice cream, and most of all getting lots of vitamin D.
These photos were taken in the charming small town of Leiper's Fork, which lies just 40 minutes outside of Nashville. It's the perfect destination for a windows-down car ride through beautiful countryside and horse farms. The town consists of one main road with a few little fashion boutiques, local art galleries, Puckett's Grocery and Restaurant, and an outdoor theater called the "Lawnchair Theater" that hosts live music and movies. Leiper's Fork should definitely be on your summer travel list.

A new season means it's time to switch over your wardrobe if you haven't done so already. I've recently been thinking about how I can freshen up my summer accessories. Fossil's Campbell Crossbody and Gen 3 Smartwatch (Q Venture in Rose Gold) are the perfect accessories for the summer. I love the Campbell Crossbody because it is lightweight and small which will be great for summer concerts and the faded indigo is such a gorgeous color for the season. The Gen 3 Smartwatch is probably the coolest piece of technology I own. Unlike traditional watches, Fossil's Gen 3 Smartwatch features a digital touch screen face. You can pair the watch with your smartphone by using the app Wear OS by Google. Once your phone and watch are linked, you can get text or call notifications, calendar updates, email alerts, track your fitness performance, control your music, and so much more directly from the watch. I will definitely be wearing these two Fossil pieces a lot this summer!
