friday's fancies #21

A very happy Friday to you! At the end of a long work week, I always look forward to seeing all of your fabulous Friday's Fancies posts! It's such a treat :) Tonight, I have a work happy hour to cap off the week, but since I pulled together a post-work preppy concoction a few weeks ago, I decided to craft my dream Easter outfit instead! We'll be heading to our church for the Easter service on Sunday before bopping up to Boston to see my bff {ch} and her family, who have so kindly invited us for brunch. 

As a kiddo, I loved getting an "Easter" outfit. Back in the day, the dresses were often floral and included a hat. I've evolved a bit-- so here's what I would be wearing if money grew on trees:
{all images are screenshots from the corresponding links below}
1) Tory Burch plays to my weaknesses yet again. This Louisa Shoulder Bag positions itself as the newest bag on my wishlist as a multi-seasonal player that could work as a pop of winter white or a sweet dose of ivory in the springtime. Though I can't make the splurge in the foreseeable future, I can certainly keep admiring it through Friday's Fancies!
2) Perfectly preppy and super springy, this Lotusgrace Pleated Taffeta Dress was an instant winner in my book. I just cannot get enough of the sweet bow and the gorgeous texture of this dress!
3 + 4) When I happened upon the Lulu Frost for J.Crew collection, I fell head over heels for the "emerald" touches in the Bohemian Lattice Bracelet and the Heirloom Crystal Lattice Earrings. These beautiful pieces would certainly become heirlooms for my future baby {v}'s.
5) Full disclosure: this isn't the first time these Kate Spade Maribeth Heels have appeared on {long distance loving}...you probably spotted them in my post a few weeks ago on the new Kate Spade Wedding Belles collection. Since they've been on my mind for almost three weeks, I decided it was fair game to use them ;)

If you celebrate Easter, what are you dreaming of wearing this year?
Do you have one Easter dress which stands out in your memory bank?
{I definitely remember the year my mom and I wore matching Easter dresses :) !!}



Since I started hosting the Friday's Fancies link-ups fourteen weeks ago, more than 350 posts have graced the pages of {long distance loving}! I count my blessings every Friday that so many of you have latched onto this fun idea of dreaming big and sharing it with the world :) I know the effort each one of you puts into your posts--and it is such an honor that you take that time to make them!

Take some time to admire your fellow Friday's Fancies faithful this week--you each deserve a round of applause for the lustworthy outfits you'll be posting this week. I cannot WAIT for the Royal wedding edition of Friday's Fancies next week :) 

Have a very happy Easter! xoxo {av}


P.S. To me, Easter epitomizes the promise of a life infinitely greater than this one. Though I'm going to make the most of the life I've been given on this earth, I'm looking forward to the days I'll spend with the One who sacrificed so much for me!

  21. The green color is my favorite! I love the color of the bag also, but I have never cared for chain on bags...for example can I still wear my white gold jewelry? So really that is my only reason! Silly. Hugs to you and I hope you have a great weekend with the hubby!

  22. I'm completely in love with this outfit - and especially that dress! (And a splurge on Kate Spade shoes is totally worthwhile. I just bought a pair earlier this year and I love them so much.)
