Songs of the Summer Playlist

What is BSE?

Today, for the first time this year, it’s hitting a nice 70 degrees in my area, and to celebrate, I’ve decided to launch my BEST SUMMER EVER series. This will be a compilation of several summer-y posts, from beach packing reminders to bucket list recommendations. I plan to work on these throughout the summer, but I’m excited to kick-start in the springtime – I can’t wait for June! All of the BSE posts can be found here.

For my first BSE post, I’m sharing my Spotify playlist of songs that get me in the mood for the heat! I’m constantly jamming out to these songs when I need a refresh of what it feels like to enjoy shorts and tank tops out in the sand and the sunshine. (Warning: if you catch me daydreaming, don’t interrupt!)
