Welcome to this week’s edition of 7 Things We Love! Get inspired by all the things inspiring US right now, from what we’re reading and eating to what we’re wearing and listening to. Let us know what you think about our picks in the comments—and give us yours, too!
WHAT WE’RE WEARING: MUSCLE TEES
Summer’s hottest tops are a little rock ‘n roll inspired (and a whole lot of awesome). Right now we’re especially loving this Muscle T-Shirt from our brand-new Don’t Ask Why collection, which fuses the effortless street style of New York, L.A. and Milan with festival-inspired edge.Wear it with soft shorties, like we’ve styled it here, or try it with jeggings or a maxi skirt.
WHAT WE’RE EATING: GRILLED STRAWBERRY PARFAIT
Did you know that grilling and roasting fruit helps bring out its natural sweetness? Well, it does… and right now we’re obsessed with adding grilled strawberries to Greek yogurt and granola for a healthy yet totally sweet treat.
WHAT WE’RE READING: THE GIVER BY LOIS LOWRY
Whether this was/is required reading for you in school or you just pick it up for fun, this book is a must-read. Lowry’s book was at the forefront of the YA dystopic craze, and for good reason… her story centers around Jonas, who lives in a community in the future where everything has become controlled to the point of Sameness. After receiving the position of The Receiver for the community, Jonas goes on a gripping path of self discovery. Read the book now before the movie (featuring one of our current #MCMs, Brenton Thwaites) comes out in August.
WHAT WE’RE WATCHING: GIRL MEETS WORLD
Okay, it hasn’t premiered yet (it starts on June 27). But in the meantime, we’re obsessively watching (and rewatching) the trailer featuring our favorites, Cory and Topanga. (And we might just be watching old episodes of Boy Meets World to get even more excited.) We’re really hoping this show lives up to our expectations.
WHAT WE’RE DOWNLOADING: YOUTUBE CLIPS OF THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON
Simply put? Jimmy Fallon is killing it as the new(ish) head of The Tonight Show. We watch every clip he posts on YouTube and laugh uproariously at every one, from his Lip Sync Battle with Emma Stone to the celebrity photobomb he did with Jon Hamm. We can’t wait to see what happens every night.
WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO: CLUBFEET BY HEARTBREAK FEATURING CHELA
A combination of disco, electronic, electro and synthpop sounds like it might be a little overwhelming… but in the case of Heartbreak, the duo of Ali Renault and Sebastian Muravchix, it somehow works. You won’t be able to keep from dancing to the beat of this track, which feels like a mix of 80’s pop with current electro pop.
WHERE WE’RE GOING: SEATTLE
Did you know that Saturday is the longest day of the year? That’s why we’re heading to Seattle, where we’ll have our pick of the Fremont Fair, Solstice Parade and the first ever Solstice Concert Series. We also can’t wait to check out the different boutiques, nightlife and the restaurant scene. Oh, and we’ll probably be picking up a few of our favorite Starbucks lattes.
