Smitten Saturday

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary…because every girl should feel like a fairytale princess; and she can…with ban.do’s She Lives A Fairy Tale Halo. Vintage berries, satin leaves, and velvet baby’s breath sit pretty upon a halo the color of rust, embellished with gold thread. Magic is in the air, my loves!

Baby Let’s Cruise...because summer is downright incomplete without a cute bike by your side perfect for impromptu beach excursions with cute boys. With VillyCustoms.com, you can create the one of your dreams. Choose your desired shape, colors, and accessories (a basket for me!), and bring the bike Santa never delivered on Christmas Eve to life!

Traveling Toes…because your feet shouldn’t be stuck in one place, even if you’re too busy for a vacation. Pretty Ballerinas’ Around the World Ballerina Flats bring travel to your toes via slip-ons adorned in the flag of ten different countries – USA, Italy, Spain, Germany, Britain, France, Canada, Japan, Argentina, and Brazil. Where are your feet off to today, kitty cats?

Tote for One…because, in the words of Marilyn Monroe, “…it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring”; and being boring is completely out of the question with an Upcycled Street Banner Bag from Poketo! in tow. Street banners from Seoul, South Korea are morphed into shopping totes that are equal parts eco-friendly and fun. Plus…they’re one-of-a-kind!

In It to Mix It…because no girl should have to spend her time plucking unloved pieces out of her snack mix; and now she doesn’t have to. My Mixed Nuts allows you to create your very own blend of trail mix so that it suits your likes to a T – as long as mine includes M&M’s and raisins I’ll be happy as a clam!

What were you smitten with this week?


Fashionably yours!

I like the summer rompers they're showing. They look great for lounging on the deck, and easy afternoons in the gazebo, that sort of thing.

Josie said...

I have never wanted a custom bike so badly (or ever, for that matter) in my life! Plus, custom trail mix? Can you say "genius?"

AH said...

i'd love it if we had something like my mixed nuts in norway... what a great idea! sadly, we don't really have anything fun at all... :P except for very nice weather lately, i'm smitten with the smell of summer and the feeling of the sun on my legs while wearing cute floral dresses!

The Anthology said...

Oh my goodness. I suppose I should get a pair of those around-the-world flats in my favourite World Cup team. But since Canada's not in it, I just need to figure out who to cheer for.

Rick said...

I am smitten by this post. I had earlier this morning added Marilyn Monroe to my Icon Wall of Fame and so we were in the same frame of mind. Love the pic and travel toes references too!

Off to watch the subway series. It's mets vs yankees so NYC currently is in a state of civil war!

Have a fab weekend, Erika! xo

I have been obsessed with ban.do's since Johnny Weir was wearing one on some talk show a few months ago (can't remember which it was late at night) THEY ARE AMAZING.

Winnie said...

Ballerina flats are definitely a must when travelling!

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Aww. Your post randomly made me think "Oh yay! I'm glad to be a girl!" (Is that weird? I don't think so! Or, not too weird..)

And I love that Marilyn Monroe quote. Very, very true!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is such an adorable smitten post! And I LOVE that your picture is of Taylor Swift from her album. It's one of my favorites!

COCAMIA said...

I am smitten by the totes!!! So pretty!

Jessica said...

My brother is currently stationed in South Korea. I'm tempted to have him go pluck off a banner so I can make my own tote!

Cindy Whitehead said...

custom bike for riding around on all summer is the best. Mine has skull caps on the tires and those dangly things ion the handle bar grips - like when you were a kid.

LifestyleBohemia said...

The ban.do's are gorgeous! I was just browsing the website. I wish they weren't so expensive, but I guess you'd wear it on a special occasion on which you'd splurge.
Have a great weekend!
