  1. My perfect summer day involves warm ocean water, big waves and a damn good swim! And it wouldn't hurt if there was a margarita waiting for me when I got back to my sandy towel :)

  2. My perfect summer day includes:
    - My hubby
    - A light pink sundress
    - mint green eyeshadow with baby pink lips
    - Gold jewelry
    - A picnic basket with yummy food like chicken salad sandwiches, fizzy grape juice, and blueberry crumble cake
    - A red and white picnic throw
    - A park with large leafy trees and plenty of shade
    - SPF 45

    Haha- is that specific enough? thanks for your cool posts

  3. Why can't we live in America? Not fair at all. Have you worn the hat yet? Does it fit on your head? xxx

  4. Oooh I'm loving the 1st two summer days... ahh perfect! Keep them coming statesiders! =]

  5. Yay!!! I love giveaways! My perfect summer day would be hiking to a beautiful waterfall and pool where I could swim and look at nature all day long with the hubby. I am bound to find a waterfall AND pool here....


  6. Hmm. My perfect summer day would be spent at a lakehouse with best friends and our boys, where we would swim, go boating, grill out and sip mojitos, and watch the sun shimmering on the water at sunset. Ending by cuddling up to my boy by a bonfire at night.

    Love the tee :)


  7. my perfect summer day is to travel
    some place with my family and mr. freddy
    and wearing that pink tee!


  8. My perfect summer day would start by waking up without an alarm clock...then writing a bit, riding my horse, and hanging out with my dogs outside and seeing my best friend.

  17. I've already had a perfect summer day! So I will wish to have it again. It goes like this: My four best friends and I head up to our mountain house by a giant lake. After sailing all day, eating cheese and grapes with wine on the island, and returning home to tan in the sun,we slip on our towels (and nothing else!) and wait until the last boat is out of the water. As soon as it gets dark, we jump in the lake and skinny dip until our skin is all pruny. I love my best friends, and any day spent in the sun enjoying our youth is a perfect one.

  18. My perfect summer day would be spent with my two best girls. We would spontaneously take a plane ride to Bora Bora. Drink lemonade and mojitos on the beach under the sunny rays, watch cute boys pass by, and dance with no music. We would laugh so hard that our cheeks would cramp, but the pain would be worth the laugh. My perfect summer would have no worries, just peace and laughter.

    What would your perfect summer be?


  19. How are you doing? It's nice to see you on my comment page again.

    lovely pink tee!!

    ps: love love your necklace from the last post.

  20. Oooh, love Wildfox! Perfect summer day would consist of going to either an amusement park or fair. Whenever I go on rides, I'm reminded of my childhood and have fun being a total kid. I'd spend the day eating ice cream, cotton candy and any other assorted over-priced food that you know is too greasy, but yet too good for you to NOT eat. All this fun would be perfect while wearing this t-shirt!

    xo, Becs

  21. Oh giveaway! Thanks for telling me about this. Hmm, my perfect summer day is spending a day at the beach and boardwalk with my boyfriend. :)


  22. my favorite summer days start off getting up really early in the morning with my best girl, strapping the surf boards on the car, driving down to the beach, spend the day surfing, catching some rays and getting brown, they we rinse off and throw a summer dress on and find some little ice cream place to watch the sunset and drive home late at night with the perfect summer playlist!


  23. Sun!!! I only need sun!


  24. Those Balenciaga inspired boots by Sam Edelman are up on Ebay!!

  25. Ah, you've made my day...j'adore Wildfox Couture.

    I would spend my perfect summer day on a picnic blanket along the French Quais. A cute boy would sit beside me, and we'd share bits of a baguette with one another as we gaze deeply into each other's eyes. Oui, I can imagine no better way to spend a summer day! :)


  26. Gotta love it. Wildfox Couture makes some very cute shirts. Thanks for the chance to win!

    sorry i forgot my email

  36. I adore Wildfox and have had my eye on this t-shirt for awhile now! My absolute perfect summer day would be spent at a picnic in the park I'd play in the most growing up and I'd be with my parents who live on the other side of the country and my sister. We'd ideally use the big pink blanket we used when I was a toddler. We'd eat fried chicken, corn on the cob, and watermelon. And I'd play on the swings and sea-saw with my sister like the good ole' days! :)

  37. Sorry- I got carried away with the thought of even playing at that park! As I was hitting submit, I realized I forgot my e-mail!


  38. my perfect summer day would be spent with all my friends frolicking on the beach, ending with drinks and dinner out on the patio watching the sunset!

    -a huge beach bbq at my fave beach in hawaii
    -inviting all my friends and family
    -bonfire at night with smores!
    -cuddling with the boyfriend
    -messy sea-salty hair
    -barefeet wearing denim cutoffs and a cute bandeau bikini top with vintage rayban clubmaster sunglasses to top it off!

  40. My perfect summer day involves hanging out at the beach with friends, Key Lime Pie ice cream, pizza, and some great music

  41. My perfect summer day would be to sleep in (but not TOO late) and wake up to the sound of the ocean waves lapping against the coast. Then taking a walk to go get breakfast, followed by reading a book alllll day! And then drinks in the evening!

  42. My perfect summer day is easy: I wake up at 9 AM to a sunny morning, one where just enough light fills in my window, but not too much to spoil it and make it too hot. I have a full, English Tea-styled picnic packed including scones, cupcakes, clotted cream, preserves, tea, lemonade, and other pretty little things. I make a bento box with salsa, guacamole and Hello Kitty biscuits, pack everything up, throw on a red bathing suit and a cute coverup/dress, grab my boyfriend, and we head for the beach to throw eachother in the water, munch on our snacks, and have a sandy day. I finish it by bringing a book for me and something for him to do while I soak up some Vitamin D and read, then head home for a night on the town with him.


    ( i hope im still eligible, i tried to post this comment on sunday but it didn't work for some reason... Blogger wasn't reading my google ID or something)

  43. my perfect summer day starts on the beach and ends on someones roof with my friends, a blanket and some beers!
