It's that time of the year again when the sun sends out some serious love. The warm breeze, blue skies, and school finally being out—the list goes on. Here are the top ten things that never fail to get us dreamy-eyed about summer.

 1  The beach

This is a no-brainer. We just can't stop thinking about the feel of the sand on our toes and the water splashing against our skin. Nothing beats the beach as the number one place we want to be in this season. 

 2  Summer anthems

We just love dancing and singing our hearts out to summer-inspired jams from our favorite artists. We can’t wait to have our playlists filled with LSS-worthy music that just encapsulates summer in a nutshell—vibrant and fun-filled.

 3  Ice cream and other frozen treats

Is it just us or doesn't ice cream taste ten times better in the heat? Popsicles, shakes, smoothies, and who can forget halo-halo? Cold treats are not only a good way to cool down in high degrees, it's equally yummy too. 

 4  Summer fashion

When it comes to the outfits that always rock the season, it's constantly about the bold, fun prints and the bright colors. If you've been hiding that sundress at the back of your closet for too long, it's time to take it out. Plus shorts and tank tops, hats and sunglasses, floral skirts, camisoles and cover-ups over swimsuits.  Playing dress-up for summer is never a bore.

 5  Time to marathon our favorites

Summer is the time to recharge and refresh. It's the season of freeing yourself from all the stress that has piled up over the past school year. After all the hard work you put in, consider it a reward. You deserve it, girl. 

 9  Time to learn something new

Learning doesn't have to stop while school is out. The best part of learning something new in the summer is that you can choose what to gain knowledge about. Subjects aren't fixed, you get the opportunity to look for ones that really interest yo,  and tailor fit your passions. Count us in for workshops and camps, yes please!

 10  Tons of adventures

Perhaps what we love most about summer is that there's so much room for adventure. Dare yourself to do things you wouldn't normally do. Go ziplining, skydiving, cliffdiving, parasailing, scuba diving, nature tripping, etc. Get out of your homes and travel to someplace new. This is most probably the only time of the year you'll ever be entirely free to go on exciting memorable journeys and escapades. So, make the most out of it.
