Why Don't You...?

…cast aside your proclamations that you “don’t have the time,” fill your J.W. Hulme Co. Sahara Excursion Tote with the essentials, and jet off to some faraway, glamorous destination? As Martin Buber once said, “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.”

…shimmy into your Rory Beca Bailey Cutout Halter Dress, and toss a spur-of-the-moment cocktail party? Two rules that can’t be broken…dressing up is a must, and it’s BYOM (bring your own music). That’s right, darlings; une petite personal playlist is required for entry!

…slick mark’s Mini Mark It Stick Hook Up Stick for Lips upon your pretty pout, and fling a coquettish smile in the direction of the cute boy next door whom you’ve been crushing on for ages?

…wrap yourself up in Rebecca Taylor’s Femme Military Cardigan, order a Venti Iced Cinnamon Dolce Crème Frappuccino, and spend the afternoon people-watching at Starbucks? In the words of Stephanie Piro, “Behind every successful woman…is a substantial amount of coffee.”

…kick off your Report Signature Shoes Thompson Cutout Booties, race to the bottom of the beach, right where the water meets the shore, and draw a bevy of blissful pictures in the sand? Don’t forget to take pictures of your creations, my loves!


Fashionably yours!

love that rory dress and that travel bag!

Jamie said...

First let me say that dress is adorable, second that cardigan is...WOW, third while the caloric value of a frapaccino is far beyond what my conscience will allow, sitting at coffee shops drinking sugar free vanilla iced coffees is pretty much my favorite past time!!
