Those are totally fabulous! They'd be perfect for my planned summer of poolside lounging ;)

My favorite summer memories are from the summers spent on my grandparents farm. Running through sprinklers, getting lost in the orchard, plums from the tree and berries from the bush...

Camilla said...

My favorite summer memory is my brothers birthday when I was about 6, we had a compettion to see how many people we could fit on our trampline. We had 8 adults and 4 kids all bouncing around, It's one of my favoite memories, I can remember the smell of cake and candles in the dark. My friend is coming on holiday with me this summer, and I've arranged to meet a lovely blogger! I can't wait!

This summer, I plan on a lot of tubing in Oregon rivers, and bonfires on the coast. Vive l'ete!

Lindsey said...

I'm going to spend this summer going to art shows with my husband. And since we live close to the beach, I'm sure I will find some time to boogie board and have some fun in the sun. Oh, and with these Fred Flare sunnies, I will look cute while doing so!!

im not sure if its open to international readers,, but if it is..
im from australia :) and my favourite things about our summers is a day at the beach with friends, eating icecream and fish and chips at Victor Harbour.. followed by a late night party; its still so warm that you can wear a light dress and the skies are so clear all the stars are visible. plus a cold fruit punch suits this weather very well :)
have a good weekkend :) xx

dear kate said...

i love these sunglasses!
my favorite summer memories usually always include traveling to see my grandma. she lived right smack in the middle of nebraska in a town of 300 people. there was a park in the middle of the town with a very steep, very old, very dangerous metal slide. :)

Dana said...

My favorite memory was probably when I was about 5 years old. I was running around in my grandma's yard in the pouring rain for hours just wearing a bathing suit. I picked her a bouquet of dandelions. I's love to do it again!

Sonya said...

This is literally the perfect giveaway because I have been meaning to buy these, they are just perfect!

My favorite summertime memory dates back to the summer of 2006, when I met my current boyfriend (in June)! We have been together for almost 4 years! I also went to Japan that summer which was almost as amazing.
This summer I will be doing nothing but taking class, woo!

Vanessa said...

oh, I love these! My absolute favorite summertime memory is the summer I took a roadtrip with 3 wonderful friends to Bonnaroo. It was my first overnight festival experience, and I gorged on falafel, stayed up until 5am watching My Morning Jacket, and smelled pretty bad the whole time - totally worth it.

Annie, Time Enough for Drums said...

One of my favorite summertime memories is a trip some friends and I took to my aunt's lake cabin in Minnesota. The weekend was full of trampolines, saunas, and general shenanigans.

Thanks for the giveaway!

nanzy girl said...

I'll be going to Honduras for one month this summer. I'm going with a organization and we'll be doing a medical clinic where there will be doctors and free medicine to the people who are sick. I am so excited to be doing this. At 17, there's nothing I want to do more than help people and this really is a wonderful way to be doing so! I'm really looking forward to an awesome summer.

Under Urooba's Umbrella! said...

Oh! Dear goodness, I'd like to win me some old-fashioned contest!

ALRIGHT.
Fave summer memory you ask?
Oh yes. The summer I "BECAME A WOMAN".

The days were getting longer, and so were the duration of my mood swings.
Menstruation had begun.

Amanda said...

Love these glasses! I am looking forward to wedding planning this summer because I just got engaged!

Kristina said...

Love the sunglasses!

My favorite memory of summer would have to be when I would visit my grandparents in Florence, Oregon. We'd go to the beach, go for walks in the woods and just enjoy each other's company.

Miss Vinyl said...

I am excited to do nothing. We have (partial) season tickets for Tigers baseball, so my husband and I will be at TONS of games, but no other plans!

The Time Has Come... said...

I love those sunglasses!

A favorite summertime memory of mine was a few years ago when I studied abroad in Germany...I made a lot of new friends, got to experience a new culture and totally new experiences, and got to spend some quality time with my twin brother. I think about that trip just about everyday.

Love the shades... I would wear them every day, with everything! As a fellow New Englander, hopefully you'll understand just what this memory's about... :)

A few summers ago, my then boyfriend (now husband) and I went with some good friends to stay on a farm in Martha's Vineyard. It was my first time there -- I'm originally from PA -- and I was totally enchanted by the place. We spent the day skinny dipping in the sun (the farm belonged to house-sitters for a wealthy family, so it was a private beach!), and after riding into town in the back of a dusty pick-up and buying fresh fish, clams, and mussels, we grilled and ate out under the stars, drinking wine and singing folk songs.

A perfect New England summer moment.

Becca Jane said...

Fabulous glasses!

My favourite summer memory thus far was snoozing, reading, and enjoying gelato in the park with friends by the Leaning tower, baptistry and duomo in Pisa. The perfect day.

As for this summer? I'm looking forward to discovering a new city and starting a new job

morganne said...

My favorite summer memory was being 7 and riding bikes and hanging out in a ditch pretending it was a fort. Me and the other neighborhood kids would crawl through peoples back yards like spies and end up all muddy and scratched up. I was quite the tomboy and daredevil then, I miss being so free like that!

I love your blog Julie, it is one of my favorites, your gorgeous!!

morganneelizabeth@gmail.com :)

Angie D said...

Oh my goodness! They are definitely perfect...I've loved seeing yours! Thanks, Fred Flare!

My favorite summertime memory is boating in Lake Michigan! We were lucky to have quite a large boat (27 feet!) with a cabin growing up, and this one day was so perfect. The lake looked just like the Carribean! And, I also love watching fireworks from our boat now! It's not as big, but it does just fine for me and my hubs :)

carly. said...

favourite thing about summertime, sunglasses...i love collecting them and displaying them on hangers! but another summertime thing i love and am obsessed with is cottaging and camping!! i do a lot of both and love it...

Kate said...

Love them! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

One of my favorite summer memories is from last summer, when the fella & I went to an amusement park in Montreal and rode the biggest rollercoaster there 3 times in row, laughing and screaming and throwing our arms in the air! So much fun!

tomorrowneverknowsfashion said...

Wow those are some cute sunglasses. I have such a sunglass addiction, I havent bought any yet this summer so I think I'm due for a new pair right? ;)
Lets seeee this summer, I plan on enjoying extended weekends out of town, I'd love to get some really good photos of this and that. I also want to go swimming as much as possible in my new one piece polka dot bathing suit and just have as many fun adventures as I can!

Emalise said...

This summer I am looking forward to joining my host family in the Netherlands as their au pair!

Kassie92 said...

My favorite summertime memory is actually from this year. I went to a Cage the Elephant concert and the venue was right across from the beach so after the show, some of us went over there with Matt, the lead singer, and we built sand-animals and had a mini concert on the beach. It was amazing!

And those sunglasses are amazing!

Sarah said...

These are great shades. Just lovely.

What I am looking forward to most this summer is camping by the lake. Making smores, telling stories and swimming/kayaking all day.

chelsea lee aka spicklebee said...

I'm totally in LOVE with these glasses!

My favorite summer memory is spending every day at the beach the summer before I went into high school. It was carefree and such a fun time.

This summer, I'm looking forward to going to Norway with my honey to meet his parents and see his homeland. I've never been to any of the Scandinavian countries and its been years since I took a real vacation. Yippppppeeee!!

Moo said...

I'm looking forward to playing tennis, going to the beach, and hanging out with friends.

Jen said...

those are some fantastic shades! :)
(i'm loving the shades in the post before this one as well). this summer i'm looking forward to doing some traveling!

Jenn said...

My favorite summer memory has to be last summer when my boyfriend and I decided to visit as many West Coast National Parks and other wild places as we could. We spent the summer camping and traveling through Washington, Oregon, California, and Montana. Cooking only by campfire, living in a tent, and seeing some of the most beautiful places in the world with my love was an amazing adventure that I will never forget (and a great break from city life!)

Courtney said...

oooh i've had my eye on those glasses for awhile! this summer i am looking forward to doing absolutely nothing, with a bit of reading on the side.

Future Lint said...

My favorite summertime memory will be repeated MANY times this summer too... my boyfriend has a sailboat, but no car, so we PULL the boat down the streets of Minneapolis from his house to the closest lake (luckily only like 10? blocks)... see here for ridiculous photo evidence of me waiting at a stop light pulling a boat with my friend JRod

April said...

I love those sunglasses!

My favorite summertime memory is basically ANYTHING from last summer. Right after graduation, some friends and I went on a cruise in the Caribbean and it was such a blast that we had 'cruise reunions' once a week for the rest of the summer! One night, we had all the boys cook for us girls, and the meal was surprisingly impressive :)

Anna said...

This summer, I'm looking forward to moving to Austin, Texas! And this sunnies will be perfect for the bright Austin sun!

Emily Maude said...

I'm looking forward to visiting Samoa later this month; these sunglasses would perfectly suit my adventures!

Opheeee said...

I am really looking forward to sunshine days where my friends and I could boogie board at the beach =)

Cadie said...

One of my favorite summer-time memories is actually from last summer. My boyfriend at the time and I rented a house in North Carolina with one of my college housemates and her boyfriend. We spent the week going to the beach, grilling, exploring the town and we even played games like apples to apples at night. I wish we were going back this summer!

Lauren said...

All summer time memories are wonderful but I am especially looking forward to this summer! I am going to Chicago for 2 weeks to shop, shop, shop and take some much needed relaxation time. Plus I get to visit with my cousins!

Hannah said...

no way!!! I loooooove fred flare so much it isn't even funny.
And, I've been needing new sunglasses, so perfect timing, miss orchid grey!

This summer, I'm looking forward to getting better at my spanish. I've taken it in school for 4 years now, so it's time I started practicing!

Olivia said...

Me too!! I love, love, love Fred Flare! I could spend hours just gazing at all the wonderful stuff they have.
This summer I am looking forward to spending some time in the sun. I live right next to the beach and have decided I should take advantage of it and go get myself a nice tan.

Kathryn from Schoolmarm Style said...

Those are such great glasses! They'd be wonderful for summer road trips! My favorite summer memories involve lots of berry picking and working at a summer theatre in my teens.

Kristi said...

This summer I'm going to an island in the San Juans to be a counselor at a summer camp! These sunglasses would be peeerfect ;)

heyheyscenester said...

One of my fav summer memories was last summer when I went down to San Diego with some friends and my sis. So we were dorky and went to Comicon, but the funnest part of that weekend was actually visiting the maritime museum and wandering around old boats and subs. Then we got some carne asada fries at Super Sergios, which is where I always go any time I visit SD. And then trying to talk about anything to keep my friend awake on the drive back to LA.

kaitlyn said...

Oo I love Fred Flare!

My favorite summer time activity is canoeing on the local lake, and then roasting marshmallows over an open fire under the stars! I'm looking forward to doing this quite a few times this summer! :)

Kristy said...

Hi Julie! Loove this giveaway, I'd wear these all summer! My favorite summer memory is with my best friend Bri. We went to the drive in to see Finding Nemo I think, and took my parents huge conversion van to park. We sat on the roof of it way high above everyone else and totally pigged out on every single thing sold in that concession store. haha it was a fat day for sure, but it's one of my funniest (word?) summer memories I'll never forget :)

Thanks for a chance to win!

Best summer was 2003; husband I got married in The Grand Canyon; helicopter rides,lots of wine, just him & I surrounded by endless coloured rocks, breathtaking landscapes screaming our names & counting the echoes; the whole experience was filled with moments of perfection!
Love the sunglasses!

Anna Shapiro said...

Those are absolutely gorgeous! They'd be amazing to slightly modernize a sort of 50's-esque outfit.

It's hard to choose a favorite summer time memory, but I think mine is probably visiting London when I was eight. We were there with my oma and opa (grandparents in German) and although I was too young to shop in a lot of the awesome places, but I do remember seeing a lot of crazy outfits, beautiful architecture, hearing sexy accents, and learning more about European Middle Ages history (I was OBSESSED with the black plague and torture :/ )

D) riding my bike in the summer sun
E) picnics in the summer sun

F) wearing fred flare sunglasses to block out some of that summer sun

Plummy said...

Those glasses are awesome! My favorite summer memory...probably gathering a ton of friends, cramming them all into my tiny little Honda, making a brief pit-stop at a grocery store for snacks and then camping out on a beach all day! Eating sugar cookies, alternating between shady grass and sunny beach, slushees...nothing beats summer. :)

Maria Confer said...

These sunglasses are gorgeous Julie!! My favorite summertime memory is running up and down my block chasing after the ice cream man!

Such great glasses - tortoiseshell anything is the way to go for glasses! I love summer, because I can wear my sunglasses at night :P

My favorite summer memory? Picnics! I love everything about them: finger foods, blankets, the all-important basket, gathering friends by the lake and eating, drinking, laughing 'till the sun goes down! Hooray for summer!

Blythe said...

Love the glasses! I've always admired how funky and cute the stuff at FF is.

When I think of summer, I think of sleepaway camp - late-night bonfires, horseback riding, hiking, care packages, giggly Truth or Dare games. Aw, I wanna be a kid again.

Mich said...

Definitely outdoor concerts! THey're my fave!! And some sunglasses would be perfect! :)

My favorite summer memory had to be going to Outer Banks for the first time with my best friend and staying in a huge house on the beach. It's so much different than the New Jersey shore, I just love it.

Christine said...

Fred Flare is such an awesome store! I've wanted to purchase those sunnnies for a while but they've been out of stock :(

My favorite summer memory is of the summer after I graduated high school. I felt like I had reached a turning point in my life. I spent most of the summer getting to know the city I live in a little better. I spent several different days just roaming around with my best friend and we found many places we had never even seen before! It was quite the experience considering we were born and raised in this city. When I look back now, I feel like I not only got better acquainted with my city but with myself as well. I grew up a lot that summer and and got to enjoy so many little things that I would have normally just passed by; it is one I will never forget.

Gorgeous glasses! My favorite summertime memory--that's a hard one! Maybe the summer I taught English in a Hungarian village in the Romanian countryside, and it was a tiny village with four streets and 150 people and whenever gypsies came through the town, they'd stare at me and touch me because I think they had never seen a Chinese girl who could speak English (or maybe they had just never seen a chinese girl,) and my host mother would bring a block of lard to my room every morning and I'd try to choke it down. It was a wonderful summer.

Awesome giveaway, because I love those glasses :) I started working full time last summer and didn't have any holiday then, I just worked, worked, worked. So this summer I'm looking forward to my first official vacation from work :) Also because I really need it :) I have no specific plans so far, but I would love to travel somewhere, see some place new with my awesome boyfriend, because he's my best travel buddy :)

First of all, tortoise shell glasses are forever chic, so these instantly became an addition to my fashion wishlist.

My plans for this summer:

On June 12th, I will be moving to a place I've never even been before-- El Paso, Texas. I'm moving from a little town in Florida, and Heaven knows what I'll think of my new home. As I go through this transition, I want to look my best...Feel my best. Saying goodbye to my friends has been so tough, but I'm looking forward to a new life.

And since I'm going to one of the sunniest places in the US, what better accessory (besides a hat or sunscreen) would be better to win than sunglasses?!

I love these!

This is going to be my first summer living in New York City, as well as the first summer that my boyfriend and I will be in the same place basically the whole time. I really love it here in the summer, and can't wait to take advantage of all the amazing (many of which are free!) things to do here.

kim said...

cute sunnies!!

let's see, my favorite summer memories would have to be from when i was little and we spent the majority of the time at the lake cottage. i'd always get to bring friends and we'd just have a blast tubing, making smores, and staying up late. i miss those days!!

I can totally imagine wearing the Carrie' with this dress: http://www.fredflare.com/customer/product.php?productid=5918&cat=298#

And reliving the magical 2008 summer in which I worked at a local independent record shop in Davis, CA and spent heaps of time listening to indie records, sipping iced mochas and reading about the Universe. So fun!

This summer I am most looking forward to going camping with my husband. It's our favorite summer pasttime and I'm just DYING to go!

Jamie Lovely said...

Adorable. I love them.

I'm planning on going on a road trip this summer! Chicago to Denver to go to a conference and visit friends. Can't wait!

Jennifer [Aspiring Fashionista] said...

My favorite summer was the one right after I graduated college. My husband's job didn't start until mid-June and I had not prospects at the time, so we got to spend a month in this perfect college student/adult limbo. It was glorious!

Lindsey said...

My favorite summer memories have always been my travels. One summer my boyfriend and I went on a very random road trip to Missouri, stopping at bizarre roadside attractions along the way. Last summer I went to Rock City in Tennessee with a couple friends for a wedding and made one of my favorite long weekends of it. This summer I'm hoping my boyfriend and I can visit friends in Chicago, Colorado, and Atlanta before he moves away to finish school in the fall :( He knows I'm addicted to sunglasses and always pack at least 2 or 3 pairs. These are a fun twist on some classics and I love how they look.

Rudi said...

My favorite summer was last summer. I went to Finland for a month and spent every night in the sauna for two hours, followed by a quick swim in the frozen arctic-circle lake, followed by another hour in the sauna. And when I came back, my boyfriend and I took a million picnics the fields of Tennessee- and I wore a princess dress.
I kind of put out my whole summer, but I count it as one giant memory.

PS- I am lusting after those glasses like a certain Mr. Hugh lusts after plastic boobs and blond hair.

Oh, I love the glasses, and I've totally been coveting their Hello Kitty wallet for a while.

My favorite summer memories are traveling around Spain in the summer of 2005 and doing things with my honey: visiting Niagara Falls, NYC, going to a cabin with his family in Ontario, etc.

Hi Julie!

While I have tons of fantastic summer memories, I'm more excited about all of the memories I'm going to make this summer.

I'm moving to Portland, OR with my boyfriend on July 4, and can't wait to soak up the local art and music scene. I love this sunnies, and think that they would fit in perfectly at Last Thursday, an outdoor art walk that I'm so excited to finally get to go to!

Great giveaway!

This summer, I am looking forward to camping. In the mountains, at the beach, by the lake, I plan to put up the tent, make a fire, and hang out with my pals.

London said...

These are so fab and I love Fred Flare! I have been shopping there since...geezz...4 or 5 years ago?

My FAVorite memories are days as a lifeguard at the local pool. This past summmer my friends and I started spending Sunday Fundays by our friend's pool (her house here that she doesn't live in because she lives in DC full time) with champagne and old New Orleans Jazz on the iPod speakers. I am so looking forward to those Sundays!

I'm looking forward to a summer of spontaneity! I just graduated college and am still unemployed, so I'm excited to spend the summer traveling, walking around Boston at nighttime, seeing old friends, picnics in the arboretum, and who knows what else. I'll have to see!

CAITLIN said...

When I saw you were giving these away I nearly squealed... just yesterday I was lamenting the fact that Vermont doesn't have a Fred Flare for me to go buy these at (and they are on backorder online).

My favorite summertime memories revolve around water: canoeing and skinnydipping in the lakes of my hometown and our annual trip to Cape Cod for some serious sand and sun!

Katy said...

These sunglasses are so pretty!

This summer I'm looking forward to baking pies out of farmers' market fruit. And the arrival of the first Michigan tomatoes in August. Mmmmmm.

One of my favorite summer memories was getting my cast taken off! I broke my arm the week before my birthday in May and had to wear the cast until July. Getting rid of that thing was truly the start of summer that year! Plus I got to indulge my inner scientist by studying the skinny (and oddly hairy) arm that was revealed...

ooh, I actually need some sunglasses! I will share my best summer memory:

Skinny dipping in a secret mountain lake with one of my best friends. The cold water took my breath away and I was frightened of the salamanders. Hiking down again. Getting black bean burgers at my favorite 50s diner afterward.

My favorite summer time memory? Gonna have to dig through the ol' dome piece here to find that gem...

While other kids were outside playing, enjoying their vacation from school, my brother and I were forced to stay inside and work on "school work" that my mom gave us. We weren't allowed to go outside and play, or do the normal summer activities until we had finished our work.

So, when I broke my leg on a slip'n'slide (yes, a slip'n'slide!) I was both painfully disappointed and ecstatic. Could this mean I would FINALLY get the summer off? Yes, in fact I saved myself AND my brother from a torturous summer of homework. It was nice to be waited on hand and foot, let me tell you. I watched movies, ate chocolate, and read my friends collection of early 90's Seventeen magazine. Orange was SO in!!

alice said...

My favorite (albeit kind of terrible) summer memory is when I went to Colorado last year to visit my aunt, uncle and cousins. We went up to the top of the Rocky Mountains and parked at the highest point you could park at. Then we started to walk up to the very top up these crazy narrow and uneven steps. Halfway up, it started to snow, which I thought was cool since I'm from Texas but then it turned into a blizzard and by the time we were at the top, our faces were frozen and we couldn't see a thing! It went from 60 degrees to below 30 on our climb up the mountain. I thought I was going to die but it has since become a great memory for me as well as a great story to tell!

I'm looking forward to an old fashioned ROAD TRIP! We're packing up the pooch and the car to visit Yellowstone and Glacier National Park.....ugh, I can't WAIT!

un bel oiseau said...

my favorite summer memory is when i was 5 i would "help" my dad mow the lawn in my osh gosh short-alls. i would help him push the lawn mower, since, you know, he clearly couldnt do it all by himself. afterwards, my twin and i would lay in the freshly mowed grass and look at the clouds. this is why the smell of newly cut grass is one of my favorite summertime scents.

thanks for posting as always :)

One of my favorite summer memories was the discovery of my younger sister's alter ego ("Toby") on a family driving vacation to Las Vegas. We now blame all of her bad manners and aggresive behavior on the basketball court on Toby. :)

I'm looking forward to college. I'll be starting college at the University of South Florida in a few weeks, and I'm so nervous, but so excited. I know it's gonna be the best years of my life, and I can't for it to start.

giulia.rosetti said...

this summer I'm planning to go to my friend's house, which is in the middle of a wood, near the sea, in south Sardinia. It's an adorable, savage place: a little house painted in green and lilac, with the shower outside (big fun when it's cool)and a lot of cats who live in the neighbourhood. I love that place, it's magic for me. I've been there so many times since I was a little girl, but it neve makes me bored...

Miss Priscilla Rosenblaum said...

One of my favorite memories is when my Dad taught me to ride a bike. We went to the baseball field across from my house and I learned to ride with a push. I don't really remember learning but I remember laughing and how great I felt to be riding on my own. I also remember telling him not to let go though he already had minutes ago! It was a great time!

shealennon said...

Great sunnies! Fred Flare rocks!

This summer, I'm looking forward to exploring Kansas City, even though I've lived here since I was a kid.

My favorite summer memories are all the amazing bands i have seen over the years. Summer is a great time to go see as many shows as possible. Music and summer go hand in hand!

edenthreads said...

The sunglasses are so fun!!

my favorite summertime memory is playing with my sister in our huge backyard, climbing trees, running through sprinklers, surprise hose attacks from my mom, and feeding our golden lab otter pops and coke straight from the can.

thanks for encouraging us all to relive these memories!!

Julie said...

This Summer.....I am leaving my nest in the Midwest and moving to Seattle. It's so exciting and scary at the same time. I'm looking forward to starting a fashion art blog of my own very soon, inspired by all the creative blogs I follow every week including yours.

Chelsea said...

my favorite summer time memory is not just a moment or a day, but just the era of life when I had summers free of responsibility. lots of driving around in friends' cars... staying outside late in the warm, humid nights... adventure, rebellion, and carefree fun. amazing days, and I'm glad I had them!

Hannah said...

One of the memories that I've been thinking about a lot lately is this one time when I was about 5 or6 and there was this huge storm. My family and I were sitting out on the front porch watching it rain, and the droplets were coming down so hard that they splashed so much it looked like it was raining up. But it was a warm rain.

Sunglasses aren't practical for a rainstorm, but these are lovely nonetheless.

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

oh yes please! they're awesome!

kelly ann said...

oh heavens, i'm in love with those shades! ;)

one of my favourite childhood summer memories: waking up early, throwing on a sundress, and playing outside all day long in the california sunshine, sitting on the curb eating popsicles, chasing boys, riding my bike, getting dirty, running home when the street lights came on, and playing on the driveway while my parents watched and chatted with the neighbors as the sun went down. mmm, i loved those days. :) summer days were exhausting, in a good way... i never stopped and practically lived outside!

Ruisi said...

Aw, the shade are pretty :]

I'm really looking forward to the array of fruits I'm going to get to eat during the summer!

elefante-x said...

this is my last summer before college (woo-hoo!) so i'm tooootally looking forward to hanging out with my friends every day, going to concerts, road trips, grad parties... and opera camp. haha. only me. =)

Lindy said...

Can't wait to go out to San Francisco for 2 weeks this summer. That city makes me so happy. I can take off by foot in the morning and just get lost, wandering through neighborhoods, walking along the bay and soaking up the sun.

bamfkat said...

my favorite summer memory was making a slip n slide out of heavy duty black trash bags. My brothers and I cut upen the bags and nailed them to the grass with several screwdrivers. we then poured dish soap on the bags to make the slide extra slippery and bubbly. The dish detergent burned my eyes but it was such a fun memory!! Good times! :)

meowsk said...

Super cute shades!

This summer I am most looking forward to evening bike rides and summertime thunderstorms.

tiffunny said...

a favorite summer time memory of mine was when I snuck out of my home in daylight to hang out with this cute guy. We sat in the park to talk, went to thrift stores, had some coffee at a cafe. I came home with my mom grounding me. Later that night she left and I went back out to see him under a tree near my home and we sat and kissed. We've been together for 11 monthes and still going.

how sweet! I'm looking forward to evenings on patios with good friends and pitchers of sangria! thanks for the chance to enter, I need some new shades :)

Those glasses are fab! I am so looking forward to spending some extra time with my 8 years old daughter. Will be taking her to museums, shopping and nature excursions!

MeghanwithanH said...

EEK, I think mine went through before I finished it!

My favorite summer tradition is going to the beach. I know its cliched, but I never went to the beach growing up and my favorite thing is to lay out with my friends and maybe have some spiked lemonade!

I LOVE those sunglasses, so fantastic.

This summer I am looking forward to a trip to Utah! I live in Florida, but my best friend from high school goes to school in Utah, so I will be visiting her and helping her drive and move back for the summer. I'm very excited, I love her so much and I really need to get away for a bit :)

Love the blog!

This summer I am beyond excited for a family vacation in honor of my grandparents 60th anniversary. I know family time isn't every 24-year-old's dream come true, but there is nothing I love more than getting away from every little worry and just having fun with people you love!

I loved these sunglasses the second I saw you wearing them! I am beyond excited to just be at home and relax, stress-free away from my busy college schedule. There will definitely be lots of beach camping, backpacking, rock climbing, bonfires, and of course--shopping! Haha. Thanks for the great give away!

My favorite memory is riding my bike to the farmer's market to pick up some fruits and veggies for breakfast. You come across the friendliest people early in the morning. I'm moving to Portland, Oregon (this Saturday!!) and I'm looking forward to a summer of biking to farmer's markets.

BookGirl said...

I'm lucky that, growing up, everyone in my family was a major shutterbug, so I have access to a virtual history of my life over the years. I inherited this interest in photography, but have stuck pretty much to "traditional" cameras. I've been lusting for a Diana camera, and until I took a look just now at the Fred Flare web site, didn't know that they carried the mini Diana camera. Hmmmm. So this post is less about summer memories of the past and more about the future memories that I may be able to capture if I take the Diana plunge.

Thanks for the giveaway!

My favorite summer memory was this one day/night around July 4 - chasing the ice cream truck as if I was 7 again. Then later on the night, I went to a carnival, riding the ferris wheel overseeing the city and harbor. The night ended by watching neighbors light fireworks 2 houses down.

Hailey said...

I'm looking forward to going on a Eroupe trip to Prauge, Florence, and Vien, and then finishing up my year as an exchange student in Switzerland by flying back home to fry in the Arizona sun!

crowdedcloset said...

Where does one begin to pick just ONE memory from summer!!!!?!?!

I think that the one thing I look forward to in the summer is fishing down in New Jersey with my lovah. The sun reflecting off the water, the salt in my hair, a peace in my soul. I long for this all year long ;)

Driving across Canada during childhood summers, from Vancouver to a tiny lake in Ontario where my grandparents lived, with my family.

It took four or five days of changing landscapes: terrifying mountain turns, endless plains, dark forests, thunderstorms that blew our tent away, all to arrive for two weeks of sun (hopefully), imaginary lake monsters, and frozen yoghurt.

In pictures from the trip my sisters and I always look blitzed in the afternoon and bleary-eyed in the mornings, and I'm always wearing a wool lumber-jack shirt inherited from my grandfather's friend. The pictures don't have that special polaroid vintage glow, but they show water lapping on rocky shores and vast prairie skies...

Lydia said...

When I was just a little kid, my aunt and uncle owned a cabin on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. It was a legit cabin, too -- no electricity, a pump in the sink instead of a faucet, an outhouse instead of a bathroom. It was phenomenal. Every morning my sister and I would get up early when there was still a mist over the water and everything was quiet, and we'd go for our morning dip. The water would always be freezing and we wouldn't last long before coming back inside for a little pre-breakfast hot cocoa.
I haven't been there in nine years (my uncle died and the camp was sold). But the few days we spent there every summer, away from the rest of civilization and all that comes along with it, are still some of my favorite memories to look back on.
