Why Don't You...?

…leave your Dolce Vita Niko Tubular Wedge Sandals at home and run barefoot along the beach?

…host a tete a tete with your glamorous girlfriends at an old-fashioned ice cream parlor? Par for the course is a fabulous frock a la Alice + Olivia’s Lexi Strapless Ballerina Dress with Belt, and oversized sundaes piled high with luscious whipped cream!

…slip into Juicy Couture’s playful Terry Puff Sleeve Cargo Romper and head to a retro roller skating disco? You may just catch the eye of a cute boy just in time for the couples skate!

…forgo the mundanity of walking, and instead skip everywhere you go? It is impossible not to smile when skipping is involved!

…pull on James Perse’s Stripe Scoop Neck Sweater, unearth your old sleeping bag, and fall asleep under the stars?


Fashionably yours!

Ice cream is definitely one of my must haves, even while on diet! And the great thing about where we live is that we have so many options!

BTW - Thanks on the comment! you don't know how much I would love to just quit my job and just blog/photograph full time *sigh*. I'm not sure if I'm at that skill level yet, but the possibility is still enticing :)

Nikolett said...

Okay, you have NO idea how badly I watn to do #1 right now ... and I wish I had those wedge sandals too haha. I might head to the beach today so I'm excited :)

Hope you get to some of these today, and sorry that I've been a little M.I.A. on your blog recently, I still love reading it :D

Yes to all of these! Sleeping underneath stars is way too romantic. Me and the hubs need to do that as he was a physics/astrology major.

Sherin said...

Brilliant ideas! I think an afternoon at an Ice Cream parlour with friends is definitely what I need. The lexi strapless dress is so perfect for that!
And I think I may have to try skipping everywhere from now on. Even thinking about it is making me smile.

Leah said...
