5 Things we Love about Summer

Summer is that magical time of year when the weather gets warmer, the days get longer and life seems to lighten up a bit.

1. Summer Vacations

There's something so basic and quintessential about the summer vacation. A lot of us can take vacations any time of year, but summer just calls us to hit the road or take to the skies. Is it the warm, sunny weather? Or is it the nostalgia of remembering summers off during our school days?

Whatever your reason, whatever your destination, summer travels are sure to be the highlight of the season. Don't forget to pack the travel size, Jiffy ESTEAM so your vacation wardrobe is on point!

2. Sundresses

Warm weather and sunny days are perfect companions for your favorite sundress. This is the time of year to make sure your collection of dresses gets plenty of wear. Throw on a sundress for an effortless weekend look or add a light jacket for after-work happy hour.

Summer fashion is full of delicate and wrinkle-prone fabrics, so make sure your dress looks as light and breezy as it feels by giving it a quick steam with your Jiffy Steamer.

3. Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

There's nothing more refreshing than a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade. We love this sweet and simple lemonade recipe from A Side of Sweet to make the perfect glass. Garnish with a sprig of fresh herbs – try mint or basil – to take advantage of one of summer's other luxuries, fresh herbs!

4. Watermelon

While our seed-spitting days are over, we're not over this summer fruit that brings out our inner-kid. Watermelon is super hydrating and it's rich in good-for-you vitamins, so eat up!

Enjoy this healthy fruit poolside or beachside, or from the comfort of your air conditioned home.

5. Summer Evenings

The days are warmer and longer, but don't underestimate the tranquility of a summer evening. Sunny summer days cool off with gorgeous sunsets. It's the perfect season for outdoor dining and drinks on the deck. And if you're in the south or midwest, you might just get to see a summer staple - fireflies!

These are just a few things we love about the warmest months of the year. What are your favorite things about summer?
