Fashionable Summer Goals

CC decided to set some reasonable (and yes, fashionable!) goals for the summer season... They are as follows:
1) Get to NYC for the Barneys Warehouse Sale in August. This photo courtesy Fellow Fashionista Absolutely Fabulous.
2) Tan only with SPF. Christian Chaize photo courtesy Fellow Fashionista Ciao, Chessa!
3) Organize iTunes songs into diverse and awesome playlists to play at the beach. Vogue, January 2008.
4) Don tights whenever appropriate/possible... CC’s collection is ever-expanding, and a moratorium has been issued until all pairs are worn! Basso & Brooke floral leggings at Neiman Marcus.
5) Have a fabulous cocktail party, just for the gals. How adorable are these invitations from plumparty.com?
6) Be a more frequent museum-goer. Bazaar, November 2007.
7) Develop and teach a Water Yogalates/aerobics class. W, August 2006.
8) Don all new bikinis sometime before summer ends. Metallic dot bikini at victoriassecret.com.
9) Embellish some tanks with beads, ribbons, buttons, chains, studs, etc. DIY inspiration: AKA New York bead necklace tank, at intermixonline.com.
10) Have a posh picnic, complete with formal finery and parasol. CC loves to make an occasion to get dressed up!
11) Have a wonderful 4th of July! Bazaar, May 2005.
Hope you are all having a fabulously fashionable weekend!
Tell CC, darlings, what goals have you set for yourself this summer?

CC

LOVE this post. I'm off to buy a few pairs of tights today myself - I think they'll look adorable underneath cut-off denim shorts with boots and a boyfriend tee. And, of course, lots and lots of jewelry! :)

Happy, Happy 4th of July! :)

MizzJ said...

Those are some pretty good goals! I especially love the fancy cocktail party and picnic ideas, I might have to steal those for my own summer list haha. My goals this summer are just to relax and have as much fun as possible, go to some sort of outdoor festival, walk or run the seawall(this 10K boardwalk running along the coast line of downtown Vancouver).

Avi said...

I'm also doing this now:
5) Have a fabulous cocktail party, just for the gals.

Diego R. Wyatt said...

Happy Day of Independence CC! These goals are great. I have to shake this Spring Fever off and get back to my museum hopping and photo exhibit wandering. Those plumparty invites are great!

Ela said...

Did you say Barney's Warehouse Sale??? Oh, please share the details I'd definitely make a trip to NY for that! #10 sounds delightful!

My goal...was to get back to the gym so my arms don't look like plump sausages when I wear fitted long sleeve tops. Was doing well - 3x/wk and then I missed a day...all it takes is one day to throw you off!

Have a fab weekend! xx Ela

Love the idea of revamping some old cardigans with buttons, ribbons, etc. - definitely something I would love to do this summer!

WendyB said...

Sigh, I don't know what my goals are. Is that bad.?

S said...

Great list! I just organized my iTunes and it took days and days to put all my CDs on there and create some playlists. Very satisfying to have finished. Also love the embellishment of tank tops with ribbons, etc. Fantastic!

Happy 4th.

Yes, yes, and YES to "Be a more frequent museum-goer".Especially since Metropolitan Museum of Art has opened fantastic "Model A s A Muse" exhibition. Fantastic "to do" list!

MMSfaith said...

i love the goals you have set! hopefully in the future i'll be able to set goals like that where i can accomplish myself, but since i'm a little young here's what i'm focusing on right now: my goals this summer is to get in shape, get a great tan, learn to be a better swimmer, do excellent on my dance line team, and last but not least, keep working on my blog!
