These are the summer must-haves for any wannabe vintage housewife. From vintage summer dresses to homemade sweet tea, all of these items will help you have the best vintage summer!
I’d love summer more if I lived on the beach in California or at least somewhere a bit cooler than Oklahoma summers but I still overall enjoy summer.
I do wish I had a swimming pool because I don’t mind the heat if I can cool off in the water. But Oklahoma doesn’t have a huge swimming season so it’s a fair amount of work to keep up with a pool for not a lot of use. I really wish I had a friend nearby that wanted me to use their pool, all the enjoyment with none of the work.
My family did end up with an above-ground pool when I was a kid one summer when every day was hitting 100 degrees. We all decided kind of randomly one hot day that we really needed one. I spent a LOT of time in that pool.
I did have a gym membership that included an indoor pool but it’s currently closed for safety reasons. I have enjoyed using it many summers though not as much as I would my own pool.
There are many things, other than a pool, that I like to have to make summer even better and I wanted to share those items with you.
