This week marked the first day of summer, which means that this weekend is the first official weekend of the season with a weather forecast to match!

Both Saturday and Sunday promise to be in the mid to low 80s, and we already have a bevy of outdoor plans on our agenda including a day at the beach and basking in those extra hours of sunlight by barbecuing in our backyards.

But no summer weekend would be complete without an awesome playlist to listen to on repeat.

With a resounding "TGIF" in the FashionEtc offices today, here's the playlist that we'll be playing for the rest of the day and well throughout the weekend.
