Summer Soiree

One of my favorite things about the summer is all of the fabulous parties that take place. BBQs, rooftop parties, picnics in the park, you name it, I never miss them.

But nothing beats the swanky pool parties. You know the ones where you get a dressed up to sip cocktails and nibble on some finger food all while pretending that you lead this oh so glamorous life. And that maybe, just maybe, that you actually own the fabulous home that the party is being held at. You know what I'm talking about right? OK if I'm alone here then call me a dreamer :)

Enjoy the day, lovelies! xoxo

It's great sometimes to be a dreamer!

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

I love daydreaming with your images Dawn, thanks for that!

Debby said...

Dawn, you are so cute. I think you do lead a glamorous life! Here is to lots of summer parties! (Thanks for your tip on peonies... I will give it another shot. I killed hydrangeas this week... seriously... who does that?!! I think they were too close to the AC vent). xo

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

Ok this made me just want to hop poolside, grab a glass of bubbly, put on my biggest shades, lots of makeup... feeling all fabulous! Summer parties are the best my friend and this just made me long for my very own pool... someday maybe! Happy day, luv!

Dawn said...

Dawn, your life glamorous is the envy of many bloggers I am sure. But you are so sweet and lovely about sharing beautiful images that we daydream right along with you!!! I know you are loving the warmer days. Have a great Wednesday darling. Pool parties are great until someone falls in drunk...lol!! Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo.

Here's to living the glamorous life, whether the pool belongs to us or not!

I'm with you, Dawn. Rooftop parties, pool parties & co make summer even more wonderful. I don't want to miss any of them. Hope you're having a beautiful day! :)

Jacki said...

I love summer parties! I'm not nearly so glamorous as to be invited to a swanky pool party ... more like a chase toddlers around the lake shore while they try to dive into the deep end kind of party ... but no matter, it's all wonderful when it's summer :)

A pool party sound wonderful. But then again, just relaxing by the pool doesn't seem so bad either.

You do have a glamorous life :) How could you not, living in NYC! I'm sure you're the envy of heaps of people :) xoxox

Tamra of walkswithBella said...

I too, dream of that as well!! I like to pretend that my fire escape is a fabulous balcony! I plan to create a garden full of lush green aka some potted plants. hahah.. but I love summer and all the parties it brings along with it. How fab that your stompin' grounds were GPH, did you know they opened the rooftop to the public?

anyway, i absolutely cannot wait to meet you next Tuesday! I'm off to Houston for the weekend to spend time with Fam and nephew. Have a great weekend!!
