Not to be confused with that summertime sadness (cue Lana del Rey).

But speaking of Lana del Rey, I have always loved making playlists for certain occasions (spring breaks, road trips, parties, working out, summertime). Lately, I have been listening to Songza non-stop. (Think Pandora, but you choose playlists based on what you’re DOING, rather than what type of music you want to hear – although you can search that way too). So you select “Making Dinner” or “Dance Party on the Beach” or some other kind of activity and then the playlists are laid out for you based on what you’re doing which is fun! I listen to the “Blogged 50” playlist almost exclusively because it changes every week and is updated with the 50 songs of the week that are blogged about the most.

Between Songza’s “Blogged 50” and the next 10 songs, I’ve got my summer playlist off to a good start!

1. Exes & Ohs – Elle King

2. Where are Ü Now – Skrillex, Diplo & Justin Bieber

3. Sexual Healing (Kygo Remix)

4. Porcelain – Moby (The most summery song of all – haven’t you seen The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio?!)

5. Pearl Jam – Just Breathe

6. Mumford & Sons – Snake Eyes

7. Hold My Hand – Jess Glynne

8. Teach Me – Bakermat

9. Loud Places – Jamie xx ft. Romy

10. Summertime Sadness – Lana del Rey

I wore this dress over the weekend when Nick and I went out to dinner with my parents and sat on the prettiest patio for dinner – this dress just felt so summery and romantic.

What songs are on your summer playlist?
