I have been craving a hot, lazy weekend lately. I blame the weather that can’t decide whether it’s coming or going. Growing up in the inland empire, it was generally one of two things – cold or hot (cold for us thin-skinned Californians, anyway). But migrating to Santa Barbara, the bay area and now West LA, I have become begrudgingly accustomed to the range of the 60s. Do we hit the beach? Do I need a sweater?

I am daydreaming hard about BBQing, drinking sangria and lounging in the sunshine. For now, a music mix to put me in the mood will have to do.

Some tunes to kick off your shoes and jam to – join me?
