The summer months are a gift and a curse. On the one hand, summer!
On the other hand, the warm months go by so quickly that by the time we’re done getting our summer tunes, beach book, podcast playlist, and summer style all sorted? Boom. Oh hey again, sweater weather season.
So to save you the time and trouble of all that summer prep, we made a quickie guide of summer must-haves, must-reads, and must-listens for the hardcore geek, hiker, ocean soul, and a bunch more. Check out what we got, then go outside!
