Why Don't You...?

…paint each toe a different bright, colorful shade, and have a rainbow party on your feet? As the saying goes, “Don’t miss all the beautiful colors of the rainbow looking for that pot of gold.”

…style yourself in Torn by Ronny Kobo’s Emily Romper, take the hand of a cute boy, and get lost strolling through an aquarium? Your mission, should you choose to accept it, my loves, is to make up crazy names for each and every fish that you set eyes on!

…carry colorful miniature umbrellas in your handbag and drop one into any and all drinks you indulge in? After all, if you can’t go to the tropics, why not bring the tropics to you, right darlings!

…set up a petite paddling pool in your front yard, shimmy into Juicy Couture’s Color Bloom Bikini, plop Bop Basics’ Braided Raffia Sunhat atop your head, and spend the day soaking your tootsies and sunbathing?

…put on your prettiest Thread Social Rainbow Stripe Dress, arrange your hair just right, spritz yourself with Chanel No. 5, and…go to bed? You never know who you’ll meet in dreamland, dolls; you want to look absolutely stunning for the occasion!


Fashionably yours!

Lol! I love the idea of setting up shop in the front yard in a kiddie swimming pool! Seriously, it beats the traffic to the shore every weekend! I'm sorry I've kinda fallen off the face of the planet, but I've just been tryng to do a 100 things at once...you know how that goes! We'll touch base soon! xoxo

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I am obsessed with everything you wrote here. That tropical drink idea you wrote is divine, I love the "you never know who you'll meet in dreamland" and the idea of going to bed glamourous- last night I slept in an old Hooters tshirt from a college halloween party and pants with holes in them so I may need to step up my game haha. Also, I love the kiddie pool idea- that is always absolutely fun on a hot, hot day (if I ever get one here again)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I want that rainbow dress!! Like, right now. Lol.

Fab post. ;)

My man and I have an aquarium date coming up next week...must find cute summer outfit!! (Sadly, no rompers for me, I refuse to do resurfacing fashion trends that I lived through the first time they were popular lol!!)

myvogue said...

I love the idea for the bright color nail polish - that's what we should do all summer to feel good!!!

Clare said...

delightful ideas! your umbrellas idea made me wish for the days when women still carried parasols in the summer. so cuuute!

Aury said...

I love the idea of painting your toenails different colours. I just might do it...

I will. Thanks love for the inspiration.

Indie.Tea said...

I just bought my first romper, a Rag & Bone one...I'm obsessed with them (Rag & Bone that is, not rompers).

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

I absolutely adore this post. First of all, the aquarium idea is adorable and sounds like something me and my love would do. We like childish humour at times and this fun idea certainly would bring the kid out of me again! Second, I ADORE that color bloom bikini...how gorgeous! Your last point really made me smile and giggle. You know how to send me dreaming! I think I would now like to go to bed pretty....sounds fantastic. :):)
