Why Don't You...?

…dig out the leftover silver tinsel from Christmas and weave it through your hair so that you sparkle wherever you go?

…slide into Free People’s Chiffon Tiered Slip Dress, snatch Michael Tonello’s Bringing Home the Birkin from your bookshelf, and collapse under a shady tree for an afternoon of reading? As Mary Schmich once said, “Reading is a discount ticket to everywhere.”

…accidentally on purpose forget to set your alarm clock and allow the morning light to awaken you?

…find a secluded, crystal-clear stream, kick off your Dolce Vita Noah Buckle Wedge Sandals, and lose track of time hopping from stepping stone to stepping stone, and skipping rocks?

…style yourself in Vix Swimwear’s Sun Ruffle Bikini and spend the day building sandcastles at the beach with a cute boy by your side?


Fashionably yours!

Love your ideas :) I definitely did set my alarm clock but then just let myself wake up whenever which was nice! And I want that bikini + building sandcastles to come true but it's raining today ... ahh wells. Hope you're having a great week so far!

Cindy Whitehead said...

Loved Bringing Home The Birkin - great book! I think I will find a stream and hop from stone to stone - could very well take some stress away - great ideas!

FASHION SNAG said...

Mmm, I love Vix bikinis. I take it you do too? Great minds think alike! x

Winnie said...

Love the stepping stone idea. I love discovering natural beauties and then spending a lot of time there, doing nothing!

Valerie said...

Oooh, how I'd love to "forget" to set my alarm some mornings. Great suggestions, Erika!

Maddy said...

Let's just say that I "accidentally on purpose" leave the alarm clock off every weekend! Can't exactly do that during the weekday, but the weekends are a whole different story :)

Jules said...

These posts always make me smile and I love the idea of letting the morning sun wake me up instead of an alarm. That would be much better ;) The chiffon dress from Free People is really pretty and would be perfect for any summer day.

I’d also love to find a stream to hop around.

building sand-castles rather than studying sounds soo good right now!!

I want to read that book! :)

Joanne said...

I'm liking the idea of skipping stones. We do that every summer at the beach, walking along the shore looking for just the perfect stones, smooth, the right shape and size, and then the contest begins to see who gets the most skips. It's nice to have a morning of ease like that.

LifestyleBohemia said...

Love the chiffon Free People dress, it's just perfect!

Leah said...

The first entry made me smile... that is one fabulous suggestion.

That's the next book in my list of must-reads... Bringing Home the Birkin. I think I'll just reserve the reading on my long flight home. xoxo

Haute World said...

Oh, I'd love to forget to set my alarm clock, though I might get in trouble if I did ;-) I adore the idea with the silver tinsel in the hair!

Ah, if only I could let the morning light wake me - I'm always up with the birds! :) x

nookie said...

Love these ideas. I've been wearing such boring clothes lately that I am tempted to add some sparkle by wearing tinsel in my hair.

The tinsel idea is lovely.

This was really inspiring! I think it's nice to slow down a little and just relax and have fun.

Ooh building sun castles and reading under shady tree... sounds so perfect and lovely!

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Yes to tinsel in the hair, building sandcastles and reading under a tree!

Clare said...

Okay the tinsel in the hair is a must do. And I accidently on purpose forget to set my alarm on the weekends or when i have random days off... but i always end up waking up in the afternoon. shoot.

Emily said...

I would love for the morning light to wake me, school needs to be out....soon!

xoxo

Le Sigh of a Fashionista said...

Loved Bringing Home The Birkin!! It was such a fun read!!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Fabulous suggestions, as always! I'll have to keep the tinsel one in mind when Christmas rolls around. That's a really cute idea!

Krislyn said...

love the idea of tinsel in my hair and skipping in streams... the beauty of nature.

Elle said...

I'll take the beach and cute boy by my side, oh please!

Ash Fox said...

love the tinsel idea!

The Parisian Bohemian said...

I have the same quote from Coco Chanel on my blog :) And love that you're bringing the fashion industry into the context of sandcastles, poetry reading and tinsel-strewn tresses. Beautiful job!

Sassy POSE said...

Sun ruffle bikini and sandcastles...yes please!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

That tinsel idea, haha you're so cute and so eloquent- I actually was considering doing it :) And I wish I could slide into Free People's dress, so cuteeeeeeeeee! And I will say, I slept in late today on accident and the "morning light awoke me" 14 min before I had to leave... and I wish it had been as beautiful as portrayed in your amazing writing. :)

Sootjeelina said...

I love the picture, that girl is very beautiful! And the items and the stuff (what I wonder why I don't do it all the tim) are very lovely :D

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

Leia said...

I love waking up to the sunlight! It's one of the nicest things about summer! :D

All Women Stalker said...

I have not woken up to an alarm clock for the longest time and I LOVE it!

Sara Bentley said...

Would you mind if I also added "conjuring up the nerve to transform my raven locks into a fiery redhead A La Ms. Stam" to your fabulous list of must-do's?? (A redhead with blue eyes, of course...)

Death Wears Diamond Jewellery said...

if i accidently forgot to set the alarm, it would be the late afternoon light waking me!

love the wedges!

Tasha Gregson said...

cute boy and the beach yes please!! And I might try the alarm one :) xx

Rick said...

My gosh, talk about "eye-catching." Her eyes are hypnotic. And the idea of not waking up to an alarm is equally hypnotizing. Amazing post.

Much love,
Rick

SabinePsynopsis said...

Love all your ideas & tinsel in my hair and no alarm clock would make my day. Wishing you a wonderful one, Erika! xoxo

Keith said...

That's a beautiful photo. My eyes are glued to it.

I love these ideas, esp. the tinsel idea - how fun!! xo, mel

Sara Lynn said...

Erika, that pic makes me want to color my hair red again. :)

I love the idea of that bikini and making sandcastles! That soudns like a lot of fun. It is funny that you mention tinsel, I used to have the long rope kind, and I would wear it around me like a scarf.

I think tinsel is an amazing embellishment. I would love to make a necklace or something out of it!
