A personal favourite from the array of cinematic masterpieces directed by Wes Anderson. The storyline of this film is nothing too complex, it explores everyday events and emotions of the Tenenbaum family. What gets me with this film is that it's 1 hr, 50 mins of pure visual bliss. The colours, sets and especially the costumes are all exceptional, and Margot Tenenbaum is bound to make you question why you are yet to cut all of your hair off and rock a summer bob.
(can you tell I'm vibing 2000's cinema?)

Wallows - Spring EP
Of course music is down to personal taste, but I thought it would be worth sharing a couple of albums which give me all the summer vibes. First up is EP by Los Angeles based alternative rock band Wallows, entitled Spring (unfortunately not 'Summer' which would have beautifully matched the title of this blog post) is everything I could ask for in an EP and more. It only came out April of 2018, and I was hooked from the first song I heard, it is so incredible to listen to. Perfect mix of chill and upbeat, if that even exists. (I am no music critic) Not to mention it has some of the cutest album art, making it a strong contender for an addition to the vinyl collection. Despite my wishes for this album to be titled 'Summer', 'Spring' is such a beautiful name for this collection of songs as the music will remind you of sunshine and flowers.
The Marias - Superclean Vol.1 EP
The Maria's are a relatively new, Los Angeles based band formed in late 2016. (thanks google) They describe their music as psychedelic soul which is think is a pretty accurate description. Their music is very dreamy & I could imagine listening to it as the backing track to a very picturesque summer's picnic. Not to mention lead singer Maria (@maria.themarias) is ultimate hair goals too.
