friday's fancies #18.

Welcome to this week's round of Friday's Fancies! I'm so happy you're here :) 

I created my look this week around my desired post-work happy hour attire. It has a 
dash of cheery yellow to help me forget about the awful weather in New England 
and a splash of the professional preppy look too! 

{all images are screenshots from the corresponding links below}
1) I fell in love with this top a few weeks ago--and had been saving it for a future edition of Friday's Fancies! I adore this Marc by Marc Jacobs Edith Eyelet Top because of the beautiful lace work and soft lines. It just exudes femininity in my book.
2) There's just something about a BIG bag which makes my heart happy. This Yves Saint Laurent Crinkled Patent Muse Bag has all the right details for a work+play bag!
3) When I'm allowed to wear jeans at work, I always try to wear a pair much like these James Jeans Reboot Skinny Trousers. They're jeans, but they're also pants--a win-win for the professional world ;)
4) I love the color yellow with every ounce of my soul. When I spotted this Crumpet Fine-knit Cashmere Cardigan, I immediately gravitated toward that vibrant and cheery yellow.
5) These Brian Atwood Maya Patent Leather Open-Toe Pumps are so much more than peep-toes. The extra flair on the top of the foot puts them in a league of their own...
6) Though we're now into March, I still am eyeing this Kate Spade Year of Color March Ring. I love that it would give me another splash of yellow in this outfit. {I just can't wait to see what color Kate Spade picks for May--my birthday month!}

Is there a color which always catches your eye?

  5. I just found your blog, and I'm becoming a follower right now! I'm currently in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend of two years. We've been long distance constantly for about 10 months now, and we were long distance on and off before that over summer vacations from school. It's really hard, but if we can get through this and be better than ever, then who knows what else we can do!

    I'm super excited to follow along on your blog and hear someone else's LDR story.

    Yellow is my favorite color, and that cardigan is to die for!

  7. I love incorporating bright colors to cheer me up on a dreadful New England day like today maybe ....

    The easiest way to wear color is by wearing neutral or black and white main pieces and bringing in the color with yoru accessories. It always works and it is good enough even for workdays.

    Have a fabulous weekend, sweetie!

  21. look at all those link-ups! you go girl!

    I think that outfit is perfect for casual fridays because it is still totally professional! And I agree 100% about the trouser jeans.

    I wear sooo much black, but I love any pop of color. Blue, green, red, and especially PINK!
