The Jolie-Pitt clan is seriously going to rule the world in about 15 years. Their small army of six is too cute for words and they each have their own personal style (or so it seems). I don’t even have as good of style as these 6-year olds!

One of my favorite things about summer is that I finally have the down time to read for pleasure. No more textbooks, no more online readings, just me and a good book. This summer (well now that I am officially a college graduate I guess I can read whenever, but anyways…) I have compiled a list of books that I want to read.

1. Eat Pray Love

by Elizabeth Gilbert

I have already tried reading this book, however I only got about a third into it before school started back up. So, the other day I picked it up in hopes of reading it before the movie comes out (starring the ever-fabulous Julia Roberts). I love that this book is about self-indulgence and desire.

2. Water for Elephants

by Sara Gruen

Again, I have heard about this book before but what really made me want to read it is that they are filming the movie right now. Okay, what really truly made me want to read it is that RPattz is going to be in it, and let’s be honest, I am only 22-years-old so I am allowed to be on the RPattz train…

3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I have heard really amazing stuff about this book (which is the first book in a trilogy) so I picked it up the other day. Unfortunately it was hard to get into so I put it down and replaced it with Eat Pray Love (I figure I should read it first since I am on a deadline…). BUT I fully intend on picking it up again and powering through the somewhat slow beginning.

4. The third book in The Hunger Games series

The Hunger Games is a series that I began reading a little less than a year ago. I could ramble about it for hours, because it is a really good story, but I won’t go there now. Anyways the third and final book in the trilogy comes out in August and I CANNOT wait! I even have a little countdown ticker on my computer for it (NERD, I know), and i am contemplating rereading the first two books in preparation.

So, what books are on YOUR summer reading list? The best beach/pool accessory is a good book (and some SPF!)

This season I have been watching The Bachelorette and I cannot help but notice how cute most of her clothing and jewelery is. We all know she probably gets all this stuff for free, which makes me hate her a little bit inside, but I just wanted to show you some of the cute things that she has worn for her 25 hunky men (GO CHRIS L.!!!)

Here is what set off my obsession of watching what Ali wears this season. This gold and turquoise necklace paired with her simple, oversized t-shirt really stuck out to me. After I watched that episode I actually spent some time (like over an hour!) looking for that necklace online, because I thought it was so pretty. Ali’s jewelery on every show is unique and beautiful, but I really like how she pairs very simple, casual pieces with more dressy ones.

This black leather jacket was the second piece in Ali’s  wardrobe that I noticed. I love the gold detail on the zippers, and I just think this jacket looks sharp! She has worn this jacket more than once on the show, which I can also appreciate as I am assuming it is pretty pricey. Girlfriend has a level head!

Another reason why I appreciate Ali is because she has admitted that she doesn’t know much about fashion, and that she is comfiest in jeans, a shirt and some converse. How cute does she look here with her bright yellow tank top and purple shoes? I like that she feels fine when she is not glammed up and that a part of her won’t let the producers completely dictate what she wears.

Lastly, Ali can look really polished and put together. But one of the main things I have noticed about her is that she is always (almost, unless Justin is running away from her) smiling and laughing. Some find her constant giggle to be annoying, and at times it can be, but I love that she has such a happy disposition about her. You look best when you feel your best and that really comes through with Ali. I am excited to see what she wears to see her top 3 men’s families, and GO CHRIS L.!!!

The best summer jewelry is colorful. Bright hues look great with just about anything, more brights or blacks or neutrals.

Here are some of my favorite jewelery accessories of the moment:

Sequin Wave Enamel Bangles

How fun are these? I love the color combinations.

Nordstrom 'Treasure Pendants - Wish' Necklace

I was recently watching The Bachelorette (yes, I admit it) and the girl, Ali, had a really cute gold necklace with a turquoise stone. Well, I got obsessed with it and went on an online rampage to find something similar. This is the closest I got – it’s not the same but I love this necklace.

Skagen Leather Strap Watch

This watch comes in a ton of different colors and would look great on its own or stacked with a bunch of bracelets.

Arielle Collection Enamel Dome Ring

Big rings are always fun and a good conversation piece. I love this one!

Kate Spade Ultra Thin Idiom Bangle

These bracelets are more of an investment really… You can mix and match them with anything.

Now go get to playing with some more outrageous colors!
