Coffee and Heels Summer Mix Tape

Note: this is not "summer songs in general". It's more of a Sascha-specific, "what I'm listening to right now" playlist. And it's not a "summer of 2012" mix tape, either.

So summer is here. The season of mosquitoes, ice coffee, feet sore from sandals and wedges and "where the heck is my bikini". Until now,  I've mostly been spending my summer...working. In coffee houses, libraries, parks, and my couch (where I'm lazily lounging as I write this). But as a Nothern native, I know all too well that this magical season is depressingly fleeting, so between a deadline and a Fitboxe class,  I've found some time to enjoy the scorching hot Milan summer.

I adore the freedom of light, floaty dresses, the dizzying feeling of going out at night without feeling cold and seeing those first subtle tan lines (I love tan lines! They're a true sign of summer). I love the first swim in a pool, but I also love laying in the grass at the park, looking up at a clear blue sky. I love dancing my butt off under the stars, not caring if anyone's watching, and walking home at sunrise with my shoes in my hand. Listening to one of these:

Guns n'Roses "Paradise City"

Lana Del Rey "National Anthem"

Red Hot Chili Peppers "The Zephyr Song"

Sandi Thom "Punk Rocker"

Lostprophets "We Bring An Arsenal"

Motley Crue "Kickstart My Heart"

All American Rejects "Gives You Hell"

Happy summer everyone!


  1. Such wonderful summer moments you've described! I too love that feeling of going out at night without being cold! Right now it is the middle of winter so we are months away from that happening again. But I do love winter fashions too.

  2. Nice playlist Sasha. Red hot tops it all


Speak your mind.
