Summer Jamz Contest

These Current/Elliot Boyfriend shorts can be yours!

Even though it hasn't reached 90 degrees yet in NYC, we're still in the midst of a beautiful, mild, almost-Swedish summer, where I still haven't had to turn on my air-conditioning. Nonetheless I've been living in my summer clothes, and I was pretty excited when Chickdowtown offered to give away a pair of Current/Elliott Jeans Boyfriend Shorts, which retail for $198, to one of our lucky readers. They're perfect for lounging around in the park, or at the beach, and would go perfectly with these J.A.K. Plaid shirts, or a shredded tee.

To enter the contest, all you need to do is leave a comment naming your favorite summer jam right now. Personally I've been cranking up Creator by Santogold. I always like new band/music suggestions, but old favorites work just as well. Make sure to leave your name and email/blog where we can contact you! We'll chose the comment with the song we'd be most likely want to play on a hot night out in the city. Anyone can enter as long as you live in the US (we apologize to our international visitors, we love you too!). The contest will run for 15 days, and end on July 30th!

I personally won this Elizabeth and James shirt from Chickdowntown a few months ago when The Stiletto Effect did a contest with them, so I pretty much love this website. Make sure to check out Chickdowntown at and

Good luck!!!

My summer jam has been "My Boo" - Ghost Town DJ's. Not new, but oh my god it doesn't get better than this on a summer day.

Regardless of how people feel about Kevin Rudolf, my summer jam is definitely Let it Rock by him.
So addictive. <3
I can just image a big beach bonfire party with it blasting away.

Here's a link to the youtube video:

I can't say no to shorts.

Right now, I'm all over "Panic Switch" by the Silversun Pickups. It's not new, but I absolutely love that song. =)

Phoenix - 1901 (Build Remix) on youtube

The original is amazing too but I think this remix adds a twist and makes it more beachy.

Thanks for doing this contest =)

Mae said...

i'm gonna say "Graveyard Girl" by M83,

because it makes you feel like you're in a field of wildflowers flying kites and eating brie and baguettes and star-gazing EVEN if you're in the midst of a concrete jungle !

Is Summertime Clothes by Animal Collective too cliche at this point?

Here's a link where you can stream it.

Angie555 said...

Every summer, you have to keep Nick Gilder's "Hot Child In The City" on the playlist. - so good.

Reminds me of roller-skating at the roller rink in the summer when school's out and the sun sets really late. The best!

Lately I've been obsessed with Billie Holiday.. but I'm gonna go with "The Melody of the Fallen Tree" by Windsor for the Derby; I love to hear that song any where and any time I can.
Love your blog, I do a lot of DIY's too.

My fav is Shontelle "Roll It"
Has an islandy vibe and makes me feel like I should be on the beach sippin a pina colada and shakin my hips. Instantly lifts my mood :]

The Bird and the Bee - "my love"

It's insanely catchy and ethereal at the same time.
