Are you drinking enough water? What's you sleep schedule like?

Could also be the size of your meals.
If your meals are huge then the food isn't getting digested by the time you're meant to eat again.

Stick with smaller meals every 3 hours instead of having massive meals 6 hours apart...

The same thing happened to me last winter during my bulking phase, my best guess is that you can only gorge your body for so long before your appetite slows down.  As soon as summer hit this year i lost my appetite and dropped a few lbs (unintentionally).

I don't know the reason behind it or if anyone is like me but I often find it harder to eat a lot or bulk during the summer.  I have no clue if it is due to the heat or what but that is generally what happens to me.  But it kinda works out cause I cut almost every summer (except this one lol) and bulk every winter when my apatite is higher.

But my advice would be to drink more water, about a gallon to a gallon and a half to help flush your digestive system and make your meals smaller but maybe add an extra one.  That way you are never really getting to full but you are never letting yourself get hungry either.

Squat & dead lift if you don't already. They should help your appetite.

Smaller, more frequent meals along with drinking a lot more water. Im 19 and have had the exact same problems. Another thing that helped me was swimming (hence the name). Try to swim 2-3 times a week and your appetite will sky rocket

swimchamp has a good point, if you up the cardio that should boost your metabolism thus making you hungrier.

What has the temperature been like where you live? 

Hot weather can kill an appetite.

Don't worry, fall is almost here.
Most problems in lifting can be solved by either pulling harder, or pushing harder.
