things jane likes, no. 18

Happy second day of Summer! We hope everyone had a fabulous Father’s Day and Summer solstice celebration! We certainly had our share of BBQ’s and late evenings with our families, and were sad to see the weekend come to an end. Although, now that Summer has officially begun we are all set to enjoy the longer evenings, casual outdoor dinner parties and lots of days at the beach. To start the Summer off on the right foot, this week’s things jane likes is geared toward all things Summer, including the perfect Summer dress, the most ingenious way to shuck corn, the cutest DIY picnic blanket, a fun dessert recipe and clever way to check off your family’s Summer bucket list:


1. Corn is the quintessential Summer vegetable, but shucking it is definitely not our most favorite thing…until we saw this genius video on Just a Taste! Who knew cleaning all the husk and silk off an ear of corn could be so easy!!

2. We love this breezy, white dress from Seersucker and Saddles. It’s simple, elegant and polished. It can be dressed up easily for an evening out or dressed down for an afternoon BBQ.

3. This Summer Bucket List Bingo from Say Yes is genius. Instead of just a boring old list, Bucket List Bingo encourages the family to actually do the things on the lists and rewards you when you get Bingo!

4. We love our drop cloths, but who knew they could double as a picnic blanket! We’re definitely planning to try Brit + Co’s simple picnic blanket DIY to dress up our plain canvas drop cloths.

5. Sugar & Cloth’s Funfetti Dessert Chip Recipe is the perfect mix of salty, sweet and fun! This recipe is so simple and is sure to be a hit at any Summer party. Take these dessert chips to the next level by serving them in a dipped waffle cone with another helping of sprinkles!

6. J.Crew has just launched this gorgeous new geo brushstroke print collection including shoes, a dress, shorts, shirts and the perfect midi skirt. This print is so colorful, and perfect for Summer, so take your pick…there is something for everyone!

Happy Monday!
