mixtape mood – oh happy day

“being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect.
it means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
{kirsten dunst via lula}
hello lovelies,
i cannot stop smiling this week! the weather is glorious, my south america adventure is around the corner, and i’ve made some strides with the “big day” planning {the locale is booked, date is set and i found the dress!}.
i hope all of you are having an equally  terrific week. for your listening pleasure, i’ve pieced together this oh-so-sunny mixtape for the soon to be summer season. it is a little bit of everything – a bit of pop, a dash of vintage 80’s and a pinch of island-esque indie rock – that has me dreaming of an endless summer of sun, surf and everything in between.
