friday's fancies #10.

Happy Friday! After a long week, I was excited to pull together today's Friday's Fancies! I've been thrilled to have other bloggers link up with their own Friday's Fancies over the past few weeks..and I can't wait to see who joins me in dreaming this week :)

With the snow, ice, and general winter ickiness in New England, I'm thinking warmer thoughts and imagining the outfit I'd wear for date night in sunnier locales down South. It may be three months before I could wear an outfit like this here in Rhode Island, but if {cv} and I were somewhere a bit more tropical, this outfit would be perfect for a night out on the town!

{images are screenshots from the websites linked below}
1) During my days working retail in DC, I fell in LOVE with Kenneth Jay Lane. I have also had a bit of an obsession with coral {the color and the marine organism}, so this 22-carat gold-plated coral-inspired necklace immediately had me thinking warm thoughts.
2) Theory ranks as one of my favorite brands, so it was no surprise that this Hilda Woven Stretch Silk Blouse caught my eye. I think it fits a relaxed vibe and even has a touch of that peasant blouse phenomenon spotted in this spring's collections.
3) I first encountered a Mulberry bag in 2005. I've been aching for one ever since...they're classic bags which give off a preppy and put-together vibe. I love the braided handles and the color of this Oversized Alexa leather bag. {I only wish I could put it in my bag rotation!}
4) Fun fact: My first conversation with {cv} included Stuart Weitzman. Weird, I know. In any case, these Exit Crisscross Strap Espadrilles carry that exquisite braiding in the Mulberry bag down to my toes. These Stuarts looked relatively comfortable--and definitely shifted my sights to the spring and summer.
5) I know. I know. It isn't Labor Day yet....but I love the red+black+white vibe and thought these white Vince Denim Ankle Skinny Jeans would complete the look perfectly. And remember this is a dream outfit...so I can't be faulted for fashion faux pas ;)


Want to join in on the fun?! Dream about the outfit you'd love to be wearing tonight! Are you going out with the girls? Or on a date? Or just staying cozy at home? Whatever you're doing, I'm sure you've got your eye on something! Friday's Fancies are the post where you can dream big--since you're looking at the fashion and not the pricetag. How wonderful is that?!


Don't let the graphics intimidate you--feel free to take this Friday's Fancies wherever you like! If you choose to play along, you can use this logo if you wish. 


If you do link up...make sure to add your link below! Don't forget that your Friday's Fancies also earns you an extra entry in my Minted giveaway {which ends on Sunday}--just make sure you add an extra comment so your post counts!





Have a fantastic Friday everyone--for those who link up, thank you so much for taking the time to pull your look together! I hope you'll join me again soon :) xoxo, {av}
