Why Don't You...?

… cast thoughts of bad hair days to the wayside, and allow your luscious locks to fly freely in the cool breeze? Take heed of Kahlil Gibran’s words, dolls; “Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”

…slip into the Shoshanna Daisy Garden Bikini you’ve been harboring in your dresser drawer and run through the sprinklers in your front yard?

…be Barbie? Darlings, Barbie is a gorgeous individual who can be anything she desires; therefore, emulate her. Allocate the use of dramatic fake lashes; slick on Lime Crime’s Countess Fluorescent Opaque Lipstick for that perfect pink pout; and wing your liner in a way that would make the Blonde Bombshell herself proud! Don’t forget the black pumps; I believe Louboutins are in order.

…find a sunny spot in your bedroom, kick off your Pelle Moda Yaritza Platform Wedge Sandals, and take a catnap in the middle of the afternoon?

…put on your Elizabeth and James Juliet Dress, take the hand of a cute boy, and spend the day at the fair? Fluffy pink cotton candy for dinner and multiple rides on the carousel are, of course, a necessity!


Fashionably yours!

Taking a catnap sounds absolutely delightful & going to the faire!! Soon!

CCWai said...

I love the picture.
I think it's hard to become Barbie although we can try.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Fabulous ideas, Erika. Louboutins are always in order for me, but I cannot much longer ignore that I need a haircut... flying in the wind or not ;-)

Luana said...

WOW that Juliet Dress...must. own it. I'm now going to make sure everyone knows that my birthday is coming up later on this month!

Leah said...

I really envy Barbie... she has Louboutin and I don't. Hahaha!

I love the wedge... just the perfect color I want right now.

Have a great day Erika! xoxo

Great post, Erika!
A day at the fair in that Elizabeth and James dress and eating cotton candy would be perfect!

I may go after that cat nap...but the cotton candy dinner doesn't sound too bad either!

I'm channeling myself to be at the fair, eating cotton candy in the Juliet Dress right now. It's not working. But I'm feeling happier just by imagining it. :)

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I LOVE your "Why don't you..." posts! So inspiring!

Sara Lynn said...

All of these sound wonderful! I still run through the sprinklers!!

I soooo wanna go to the fair, they closed the state fair in MI, the last one was last summer :(

Susu Paris Chic said...

I want to be a Barbie. Pink pout and Loubie pumps. Thanks for the inspiration, Dollie!

Haute World said...

Ahh, I love the Barbie comment! So many think the concept of Barbie is sexit but I like how you draw on the fact that she has had over over a hundred different jobs! Not to mention an enviable wardrobe... sigh.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I wish I could kick off my Pella Mode wedges but alas I don't have any :) haha and be barbie? I would love to be, I actually just got excited at the idea of that. I love that Gibran quote too. Such a soothing post.

xoxoKrysten said...

Wonderfully lovely post =-)

Amber said...

Wow I want to do all of these things

That bikini, that lip gloss and that dress are all now needed in my life.

That sounds all so amazing. Especially the wind in the hair one. Oh, how I crave driving a snazzy convertible along highway 1. Let's go soon!

Goodness, I'm in terrible need of an afternoon catnap, right about now.
I hope your week is going well!

Josie said...

Ahhhh, I love this! Barbie is the greatest individual EVER because she can do anything. Come on, she's gorgeous PLUS she can be President, a flight attendant, and a rock star! Furthermore, I'm absolutely in love with the Juliet dress... I featured it and Emily did such a lovely C&C post on it!

Catie said...

The Juliet Dress is amazingly beautiful... if only I wasn't a college student and had a good paying job... It's definitely an inspiring dress though. I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for a version that's within my budget.

Couture Carrie said...

Love everything in this post, darling E, especially the Elizabeth and James dress!

I have a total Barbie issue as it is - too much pink, waaaayyyy too much ! Every time I pack to go on holiday I look like Barbie goes on holiday - all my pink things seem to make it into the case and it's just too much ! Loved your post though...
