T.G.I.F. A key staple item to any summer wardrobe is sandals and flip-flops. For many people you may even wear flip-flops almost all year round. Since these are a crucial item to your closet, why not jazz them up a bit? One way you can add some flair is by embellishing them with Mod Melts. This is exactly what Kim from Sand & Sisal did.

One of the best things about summer is the evenings. You can stay outside longer and not have to worry about the temperature getting too cold. Relax in a hammock, or gaze up at the stars from your porch while sitting in a rocking chair. All are great ways to experience blissful summer nights. Another way to add even more to the ambiance is to add some lights. You can place some flameless candles outside, use string lights, or create this outdoor summer lantern.
