Hope everyone has had an amazing summer. Sad to see it come to an end, always a bittersweet time around my house. I love having my girls home and spending that quality time together as a family. I am excited for my girls one will be entering the second grade this year and the other her second year of highschool. Crazy to think in another couple years I will have a college student, amazing how fast the time flies. Below are some photos of my second to last week of summer. Can't believe as I sit here outback enjoying the breeze off the lake that a week from tonight I will be in bed already dreading that 5:30 am alarm clock lol, but excited for another new school year, and lots of fun new adventures. Have a fabulous rest of the summer and will have some cool posts to share this next week and the end of August. Keep an eye out. Feeling very blessed and grateful for everything. Xoxo ✌️❤️
Couldn't wait for my Brand Ambassador welcome package to come, had to order a couple bracelets to share with everyone. I love feathers and my favorite color is blue, so of course I went with this lovely blue bracelet with silver feather charm. Then always liked wishbones so picked out this black and hammered silver wishbone bracelet. You can also find the link for PuraVida Bracelets in my favorite shops and be sure to use my code MelissaSep10 to save now on your purchase. They have so many amazing bracelets and lots of great charities they donate proceeds to as well.
Will have some other new shops and brands coming this month I am working with as well as become a rep or ambassador for, will be sure to share links, product photos and details along with exclusive promo codes and links for everyone. Excited to share some really cool new tees, bracelets and more trendy fashion boutiques.
The only item I don't think is available still is the tank but you can always send her a message and ask.
Back a few weeks ago placed an order for this cute tank from Adam Rabbit on Etsy, then decided to order an Amethyst necklace and unique blue agate stone bracelet to go with some other cool pieces I own. Love her amazing creations and of course as soon as she shared this cool graphic tank her boyfriend designed for her shop and brand, I had to get one to add to my graphic tee and tank collection. Check out Adam Rabbit on Etsy and follow her on Instagram @Adamrabbitjewelry. You can also check out more of my graphic tees here on my blog or on my Instagram feed, you can also use the hashtag #melissastees for a quick look at them on IG.

I would order it myself, because I adore this bag but on a budget right now for my upcoming cruise. Who ever gets this last one is lucky, I know I snagged the last black during their 50% off Christmas in July sale, yes I got it for $30 and it's worth every penny, even of the $60. Also comes with a wristlet style wallet inside. I get so many compliments on this tote.
Sorry my tank top is sold out, it was from Buckle and I checked it is no longer available. It is made by Daytrip. You can find music is my boyfriend tees and tanks online, but I didn't see any like this one. I have had it for over a year so I am sure it sold out awhile ago.
Friday night we had tickets to go see the Deftones and Incubus at the ampitheater in West Palm. Took my oldest daughter and we had a blast. Great way to end an amazing summer. Trying to fit in lots of activities and fun memories with my girls before summer ends.
I got a ton of comments and compliments on my tank, it has a draped almost wrap like open back and the front reads, "Music is my Best Friend". This was a Pacsun find if my memory is correct will double check on my Instagram feed and correct if I am wrong. The sunglasses are Michael Kors, jeans are boyfriend ripped jeans from Hollister in dark rinse and wore black Converse.
Of course I took my Sand Cloud blue bohemian towel, to sit on at the concert since we had lawn seats. Be sure to use my code Wanderlust25 for 25% off your purchase at www.sandcloudapparel.com.

I was a happy camper Saturday am even though I went to bed after 2 am and woke up at 6 am to pack the car for Peace River campgrounds. Love camping and was a great adventure even though we did get some rain. Love to camp out and enjoy the river. The have a great wilderness location for the tent camping experience here in south Florida.
My tank was from EBay and camo shorts from Macys. The camo Tom looking, slip on shoes are from Walmart paid $5-7 on clearance and they are so comfy. Like them better then my real Toms. Then have on my camo and classic Lokai bracelets. My blue one broke but have a new one coming. The blue was my first Lokai and was sad it broke but been wearing them in the ocean and pool all summer won't be doing that anymore.

Our tent we got nine years ago from Walmart for $38 on clearance, huge fits two queen air mattreses and a twin, with room to walk around. We do need to get a new mattress for the kids they woke up on the ground, and weren't happy.
My husband got this amazing tent that we use for our personal restroom, porta potty, has a bucket and bags. I highly recommend this for all females camping lol, it makes roughing it style camping way easier and less rough feeling, lol. I love it and since we got this a few years ago don't mind camping at all. No inconvenience of finding a private wooded area or driving around the camp looking for a porta potty, which I don't like at all. My sense of smell is strong and my stomach weak so those always gross me out but who isn't grossed out by a camp site or any porta potty at that lol.
