Good morning! Today I am tickled pink to present yet another wonderful “A perfect summer day” post! Say hello to a very stylish and fabulous friend, Elizabeth from Pretty Pink Tulips. Someone so many of us know and love, and someone who always seems to have a beautiful approach to all she does. So its no surprise that her idea of a perfect summer day has me dreaming in a big way!
Pretty Pink Tulips is such a pretty and fresh take on Elizabeth’s graceful style, where she dishes about everything from her own home to fabulous  parties, all kinds of chic resources thrown in with a little bit of travel and it goes on. I am always interested in hearing what she has to say. If you don’t know of Pretty Pink Tulips….you must visit! Click here to say hi to Elizabeth. Enough of me lets get started with this perfect summer day, Elizabeth take it away………

Hi everyone! I’ve had so much fun imagining my perfect summer day for Tina’s series. To me, there’s just nothing that beats the ocean, so that’s where you’ll find me!

My perfect summer day would start at this time of the morning (or afternoon)…..
7 am because it is when I naturally wake up

The bedroom I wake up in would look something like this……

And my bathroom like this…….

A favorite beauty product I love to use during the summer……..
an oldie but goodie

And this is an ideal summer outfit that you might find me frolicking in…….a maxi dress

My view from my bedroom in the summer looks like this……

And of course this perfect summer day is located in………..
Cabo San Lucas at Las Ventanas

After I am showered, fed and revved up to start my day, I will…….Exercise first thing to get it done. Then, put on my bathing suit & coverup (always the cover up!) and relax poolside with a stack of magazines and books.

For lunch this is my absolute favorite summertime meal……

An afternoon snack might comprise of……..almonds. I love crunchy snacks!

My afternoon activity would be………Relaxing at the spa with a massage and facial

The ideal summer drink is……..
Club soda with lime before 5pm, then some rose champagne

This is what would be served for my ideal summer dinner……

And where I eat it might look like this…………….

A perfect summer ending to a perfect summer day would end……….outside, under the stars, by the pool and a fire

The best part of my summer day is………..Relaxing in the sun, looking out over the ocean

Thank you, Tina, for allowing me to indulge in a virtual fantasy escape. Now, I want to plan a trip like this for real!
Talk about dreaming…..please tell me that I can tag along, this is beyond dreamy OR how about a bloggers conference inspired by this perfect summer day! See, told you Elizabeth would hit a home run and boy, did she deliver.  Love it all from that dreamy ocean view and her  bedroom right down to her “back yard”! Then, ending the day just gazing out at the sea, feeling relaxed and sun kissed is perfection.  Crunchy snacks? Bring them on! Doesn’t get better than this does it!  Thank you Elizabeth for such a fantasy like post that has me dreaming too and for everyone for stopping in. Want more Elizabeth?  Stop on over to Pretty Pink Tulips and tell her how much you enjoyed this! Wishing everyone a perfect summer day of their own:)

Good morning Tina!

I love these interviews to meet new people and learn what passions abound in us all! I am hanging on to summer as long as I can!

Hoping your summer’s end is as enchanting as ever!! Anita

Amy on

This girl has the right idea! I love her dress, her room and bathroom! We were in Las Ventanas about 6months ago and it was possibly my favorite vacation that we have ever taken. What a perfect summer day she designed.
Also loved your guest post from yesterday, I chose 1 and 4, but they were all so beautiful.

Brooke on

Looks prefect!I am in on that vacation !

Oh to be lying poolside at Las Vantanas. Beautiful day!!

Luciane at on

You know… I can’t say this summer was all fun, actually, we didn’t have that much fun at all. We had great moments, but it didn’t feel very relaxing.

Your idea of summer is the real deal! I’d get in a plane any day! πŸ™‚

I had a wonderful lunch at Las Ventanas – the food, the view and the people were all beautiful! Great choices Elizabeth! πŸ™‚

Barbara Bussey {The Treasured Home} on

Yes! I too had an amazing lunch at Las Ventanas! What a place! Save up, if you plan to wake up there, though. But I’m sure it would be a most memorable visit because they don’t miss anything! In my book, if you’re going to Mexico, this is the way to go! I had better go start a paper route!

Ivy Clad on

Sounds and looks amazing! I could stand to have a little of that R&R right now. Just thought I’d pop over to see what’s happening over here & to say hi before I resume my busy day! I hope you enjoy these last few days of summer.


I Dream Of on

Elizabeth, I think I’d love to stow away on your perfect summer day – it looks absolutely dreamy. I’ve never been to Las Ventanas, but think it would be my kind of place!
Happy Tuesday to you both, XOXO

Annie H. on

We were at Las Ventanas and seeing these pictures makes me want to go back in a big way. My brother actually got married there, is is truly paradise.
I love her ideas for the perfect summer day and think she got it done perfectly. I cannot think of a thing I would change here. Heaven!

Henhurst Interiors on

Looks like the perfect day. Would love it if you could share the recipe for that amazing looking salad.
All best,

Lisa on

That place looks like its right out of heaven! Love the dress, the healthy eating and mostly all the relaxing down time, now THAT’S what I call a vacation!

Jamie Herzlinger on

Your perfect day looks a lot like my perfect day! Seriously, why is summer coming to an end? I didn’t even have time to squeeze in a vacation. Time really does fly! Thanks for sharing!

Love, Jamie Herzlinger

Stacy Curran on

LOVE Elizabeth’s blog and this post. That patio is to die for!!

Sandy at You May Be Wandering on

Great post, Tina and Elizabeth! You are two of my favorite bloggers so it’s amazing when you get together! I love Las Ventanas – it’s where I got engaged!! Your post(s) inspired me to write one of my own today – “One Perfect Day in Paris” – I hope you check it out along with my new blog at

Chic Coastal Living on

I absolutely loved everything that Elizabeth picked! The strawberries, the maxi dress…it all was perfect!

Anonymous on

Oh I would love the recipe for the salad if you have it. Looks wondful!

Leslie on

Elizabeth has the right idea! What a beautiful resort and I can’t think of a more perfect way to spend a day. The salad looks amazing and I can just feel the ocean breeze and warn sun πŸ™‚

Wonderful interview Tina!

Karena on

Elizabeth we are so much alike even in our summer attire! The water/ the ocean most of all.

I knew I would love your perfect summer day!

What a lovely day and what a fun series!

carolyn bradford on

Hey, a blogger’s conference is just the answer to the end of a perfect summer day in my opinion! What fun we could all have! I can see it now! And I don’t mean a virtual conference…we need to go somewhere! It would be wonderful! Elizabeth certainly hit the nail on the head with HER perfect summer day! and yes, I”ve already looked up the resort and plan on telling Jim about it when he returns from Atlanta! I need to get away NOW!!!! Thanks for sharing these lovely ideas!!!

Kathysue on

Tina, Elizabeth is such a gracious lady and it was fun to follow along with her on her summer day. Love all of her choices, except maybe the exercising part, lol. Maybe if I did exercise I could look more like Elizabeth, now that would be a dream come true in any season!! xo Kathysue

Fashion-isha on

I love you both!! This looks like such a great day and I love learning about my favorite blogger friends!


Love that you featured Elizabeth, Tina! And her day sounds quite similar to my perfect day πŸ™‚
