Why Don't You...?

...tug VPL’s Fall Out Sweater over your head and spend the evening at a bonfire on the beach? You may just find a cute boy to curl up with next to the flickering firelight while toasting marshmallows!

…set the alarm for 3:00am to host a middle of the night baking party with your glamorous girlfriends? On the menu…S’More Brownies, Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting, and Hidden Mint Cookies.

…be the bright spark in a sea of gray? Accouter yourself in Halston Heritage’s Tie-Front Romper in Electric Combo; slide your pedicured paws into Belle by Sigerson Morrison’s Tubular Zip Back Flat Sandals in Shocking Pink; slip Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Runway Bows Headband in Fluro Pink atop your head. Electrify the world with your style, kitty cats!

…climb a tree in your Nanette Lepore Lost At Sea Romper, and let your bare legs dangle carelessly in the cool breeze from your perch atop the highest branch?

…grab Candace Bushnell’s The Carrie Diaries from your bedroom, top your rebellious locks with Eugenia Kim’s Max Fedora with Leopard Trim, and loll the afternoon away reading and sipping pink lemonade on your front porch?


Fashionably yours!

Oana Roxana said...

... spend the evening at a bonfire on the beach? That would be great! :)

Joanne said...

The idea of passing the afternoon sitting with a book on the front porch will always draw me in. Any time!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Omg those desserts sound HEAVENLY!! I haven't had sugar in so long. Sigh.

And I am so excited to read the Carrie Diaries! :P

Claire Kiefer said...

The Carrie Diaries??? I'd never heard of it! Perfect, especially in the week before the new movie comes out . . . I've never been so excited, btw!

ellie said...

you are making me so hungry. Love the bows too.

Maddy said...

LOL!! If I had a front porch (which by the way, is a must have item for our first house, along with a fireplace), I would totally loll around with a book in hand :)

English Rose ♥ said...

Yes please.

Merci beaucoup for your lovely comment darling =]

Sorry for the late reply!

Stay safe and chic ma chérie,

Mara said...

a middle of the night baking party sounds like SO much fun! yum and I love brownies :)

Theresa said...

This list sounds glorious! I want to do all of these things right this moment! Ah, but there's the reality of class in about 15 minutes. Baking, bonfires, and climbing trees, and I miss having the time to read for the pure enjoyment of it.
These things will all be added to my list of things to do for the summer. :) ♥

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

Ahhh evening bonfire at the beach! It has been WAY too long since I've been to one of those.. and I live 2 minutes from the effing ocean. You've inspired me once again haha

Closet Cravings said...

Oohhhhh, I soooo want to climb a tree in the Nanette Lepore Lost At Sea Romper. Beyond cute. Beyond.

In case you missed it - I'm giving away a pair of Vanessa Hudgens' Koolburra Sandals. I know your heart Vanessa's style. =)

nookie said...

I'd climb 10 trees if I had that romper:)

Sarah from 20somethingcupcakes said...

I'm way too into this idea of the midnight baking party! May just be easier to stay up drinking champagne until then...xxSAS

A midnight snack party is such a fabulous idea! I am seriously such a sucker for cupcakes.
And that Lost at Sea romper is such a dream!

meg said...

Oh, I do want to read the Carrie Diaries..just haven't yet.

Well..as I was writing this..I decided to look at this as in 'relationships'..hopefully, not to give too much away. We'll see if it works or not...hahahaha.

Thanks as always. Hope you having a delightful week. thanks for the recipies too!

Winnie said...

I love the 3am one, theres a photography project that asks for a 4am wake up call to capture the night around you, a pretty cool idea too!

junghwa by amy stewart said...

I totally want s'mores now. I used to make them over the stove. I need to find some longer skewers. ;)

Kristin said...

I'll take a whole order of red velvet cupcakes right now please!

lily said...

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Oh my gosh, the one about having a 3am baking party with your friends really struck a cord with me. A friend of mine always got a call from her dad at the time of her birthday on her birthday. He died last year from cancer so for her birthday we all showed up at her door at 2:41a with a cake we made and her favorite chocolates.
You are just so inspiring!

Grace said...

3am baking party! :)

Love Grace.

Alicia said...

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Darling! I'm so glad I popped over here in time for this post, I absolutely love it. My favourite idea is to "set the alarm for 3:00am to host a middle of the night baking party with your glamorous girlfriends." I just love doing crazy spontaneous fun things like this, and those S'More brownies??? YES please!! Happy Wednesday, Love...hope your week is spectacular!

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I really do need to read the Carrie Diaries! Thanks for reminding me.

Romany said...

Haha I'm more likely to be lost in the sea of gray, personally. I know everybody thinks it's a dull colour, but I find it very flattering sometimes - one of my favourites, weirdly enough.
Oh I've never seen Valley of the Dolls, by the way! Is it good? Seems like it would be my thing (I'm such a girl haha).

I love that VPL sweater. And the S'More Brownies look delicious! I have to make those. :)

SabinePsynopsis said...

A midnight brownies party in floral shorts... Can there be anything better in life? Surly not!

Sara Bentley said...

Great ideas!! I think I'll combine two of these and read the Carrie Diaries, whilst wearing Eugenia Kim's fedora, sipping lemonade AND eating red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting -- I can never say no to anything with cream cheese! Yum!!

For someone who hoards books, I don't have a single Candace Bushnell. Can you believe that? haha. I must get me a copy of The Carrie Diaries :)
