Why Don't You...?

…slip into a pair of Blank Denim’s Relaxed Classique Denim Shorts, spread out a pretty blanket, and take a long, languorous nap on your front lawn?

…tempt fate? Catch the eye of a cute boy at the bus stop; linger a little too long in front of your crush’s humble abode; toss a well-timed wink in the direction of the handsome barista at the local coffee shop. What’s the worst that could happen, dolls? You could fall in love, that’s what!

…kick off your Rag & Bone Victoria Wedge Sandals and race barefoot through a field of freshly-cut grass?

…buy a pretty swimsuit specifically for wearing around the house? Really now, taking the time to get dressed in the morning is so overrated!

…slick a shimmering gloss upon your lips and spend the day in complete silence? What was it that Margaret Lee Runbeck said…“Silences make the real conversations between friends. Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts.”


Fashionably yours!

Have you seen the commercial where the boy sees a girl on a train, uses his phone app to quickly change his train to hers, hops on, and they fall in love? It's so cute!

And a house swimsuit sounds pretty amazing.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Too bad I'm married or I'd love to tempt fate, hehe.

wow, I love these.

meg said...

really, some great ideas.

Maddy said...

Ahhhh! Who could resist a flirty encounter with a stranger?! Luckily, I've already found my prince, but at times I do miss the seduction of the "chase"! To all you single gals out there, go mingle! You'll never know where love will find you ;o)

rosiecampbell said...

Fabulous ideas!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I have a couple swimsuits I can only wear around the house...but that's mainly b/c I look like a giant cow in them and refuse to wear them in public. Hahaha.

I hope you're having a wonderful week, my dear! xoxo

Sara Lynn said...

okay so my mom totally wears a bathing siut around the house every summer. it never fails, lol too funny.

I LOVE the idea of the first one sooooo much, you have no idea how wonderful that sounds right now.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I need to start tempting fate...I agree, who knows what can happen!? :)

Valerie said...

These are so fun, Erika. So true about the silence! I always say that I know I have a true friendship when the silence is comfrotable. And I'd love to be napping on the lawn right now. Ahhhh...

Haute World said...

Gorgeous post as always! I love the idea of running through the grass barefoot (although I'd be wary of doing it in my park... too many dogs ;-). Wearing a swimsuit around the house sounds like a fab idea as well!

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

Nothing is more profound than passing the day in silence. I do that weekly. xx

Rachel said...

Oh Erika! I love this post. The shade of Nars lipgloss is so pretty!

You know wearing swimsuit and walking around the house seems like a pretty good idea since the weather is so hot here! :)

Francy said...

Oo, I'm always up for tempting fate!

I like the idea of just wearing a swimsuit around the house. How lazy summer-y!

Cat said...

Oh my, the nap sounds lovely :)

ak said...

i love that friends quote..it's so true.. my closest friends always know i prefer not to talk sometimes and they just totally get it

xx

Alicia said...

i've always wanted to try to spend a day in silence... sounds rather nice.

coolboy said...

very interesting post looks great

Elizabeth Marie said...

Ohhhh those Rag and Bones are to die for!!!

Rachel said...

The idea of running barefoot through a field reminds me so much of being a kid! Plus, the Rag & Bone wedges are absolutely fabulous.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh, if it was only warm enough here in the UK to walk around with nothing but a swimsuit and a bit of lipgloss! (It actually might be in California...) Love the beautiful colours of the sweater on the picture.

nookie said...

elledee said...

AH said...

i love these posts of yours! i want to do everything, as usual... :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

All great suggestions. =) Sounds like a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Might I add, give your skin a break and keep make up to a lip balm?

The Blonde Duck said...

I love Wednesdays here!

Margaux. said...

All of these sound absolutely delightful. And now I am very tempted to tempt fate...

Kristin said...

Maybe if I buy a swimsuit and wear it around the house I'll get in the mood to get in shape. You think?

Shop N' Chomp said...

OceanDreams said...

I will take the VS wedges, thank you very much. That lip gloss looks divine too!

Claire Kiefer said...

Spending a day in complete silence just may be the most difficult and amazing feat EVER! I might have to try it. Unfortunately, it'll have to wait till summer, cause I'd hate to witness the havoc that would wreak in my classroom if I were stuck in silence. :)

Tiffany said...

I'm WAY too chatty to spend the day in silence, but I do love shiny lip gloss. Bath and Body Work's lip gloss rocks my world.

Luana said...

Sometimes I'll be around the house in my pyjamas, not doing anything particularly exciting, and decide to slap on some makeup to feel pretty just for myself!

Jessica said...

I was unexpectedly mum yesterday with a touch of laryngitis! It wasn't as glamorous as silence by choice!
