Why Don't You...?

…drape yourself in Tibi’s Ruffle Back Cami Dress, slip your tootsies into KORS Michael Kors’ Claudia Suede Platform Clogs, and take the dog out for a walk? Darlings, walking the dog is as glamorous as you make it!

…invite everyone you know over for an impromptu backyard barbeque? The catch, my loves, is the menu – no hot dogs or hamburgers allowed; today you’ll be grilling pineapples, pears, peaches, bananas, plums, and apples, and topping it all with ice cold whipped cream and sticky molasses!

…put on Joie’s Mikko Jumpsuit with Belt, grab a gaggle of your girlfriends, rent a cherry red convertible, and spend the day cruising along the coast? Don’t forget to make the requisite stop at a roadside diner for something greasy!

…forgo a sleek style for the day, and allow your hair to remain in its wild, untamed state? As Kristen Kreuk once said, “I love having messy hair. I put in a lot of effort to have it look as messy as possible.”

…slip into Parker’s Floral Cami Dress, find a cute boy, and spend the day romping through an arcade together? Just remember, kitty cats, you, and only you, should come out the winner of any game the two of you elect to play!


Fashionably yours!

The backyard barbecue sounds absolutely perfect!
And I'm now in love with the Parker dress. It's so pretty!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Yay for messy, chic hair...in the summer I am all about wash, curling product, air dry, and go! :)

Now if only I had a dog to look glamourous walking :o/ Those MK clogs are pretty fierce though! But not sue I'd make it around the block in those!

The floral cami dress is so cute! Happy Hump Day =D

Sara Bentley said...

I absolutely love your "Why don't you..." posts!
But alas, though I'd love to wear the Tibi dress and the Michael Kors clogs to walk my dog in (cute outfit, BTW!) he's German Shepherd and a "walk" to him equals a "run!" So sneakers it is and I'll save the pretty outfit for something a little less exhausting :) I want to follow your advice on everything today -- grilled peaches with whipped cream... Yummy!

Islandia Lane said...

Sherin said...

That sounds like the best BBQ EVER! It would be so much fun? The floral cami dress is lovely. I would love to wear it while spending the day with a cute guy!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Wearing my hair messy, on a good hair day, is one of my favorite things ever!! :)

And omg if only I had such flawless skin like the girl in that lovely photo...sigh.

Pixie Drive-In said...

I love the quote about messy hair. And I think it's really true too. Sometimes I wake up and decide I'm going to make my hair do the messy bedhead thing...more effort than one would think!

And the bbq sounds delicious. I need to plan one of those.

The Blonde Duck said...

I just invited a girlfriend out for ice cream! Great minds think alike!

junghwa by amy stewart said...

Why don't I wear some fuschia lipstick, because that shade is ah-mazing!!! :)

Emily said...

Sara Lynn said...

LOooove that Cami dress! You are making me want to go shopping soooo bad :) :)

Kristin said...

I've got the cute boy...all I need is that dress!

Clare said...

I am obsessing over that ruffle cami dress, what a great find!

Grace said...

I really like that Kristen Kreuk quote! And it sures sounds fun to drive along the coast in a cherry red convertible.

Bostonista said...

I left my hair wild today actually. Of course I just had to run errands so no one of any consequence really saw me but it was kind of liberating. I just washed it, combed it out a little, and then let it air dry. Its a bit frizzy now but now I think I'm going to do a loose braid for bed.
That was a lot of information, lol!

great post!

Mara said...
