friday's fancies #25.

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you've enjoyed the fabulous California-themed guest posts--a huge thank you to Lena, Megan, Annemarie, and Ashley for sharing a little of their favorite state with all of you! Our vacation is all-too-quickly speeding by, but we've been enjoying every minute. This morning, we're planning on taking a hot air balloon ride over wine country--and I cannot wait to share some photos with all of you :) In a world without budgets, you could find me in this outfit for the day of wine tasting ahead:

1) I loved out this Beyond Vintage Deep V-Neck Lace Tee brought a little femininity to this outfit and that it still looked like a staple in my current wardrobe {the v-neck tee!}. I would likely have to wear a cami underneath, but in this dream, I wouldn't ;)
2) I know bib necklaces came into prominence last year, but I'm still on the bib bandwagon. This Kendra Scott Harlow Necklace brought a burst of color to the ivory lace tee and really tied the outfit together.
3) I'm quickly becoming one of Topshop's biggest fans. This Coral Gathered Slit Side Maxi Skirt brought the easy, Californian vibe I was hoping to create for this outfit. I also adore the color. 
4) This ChloĆ© Heloise Small Leather Bag looked to be the perfect size for my wallet and my point-and-shoot. I love the rich leather and the texture too! Swoon!
5) As a huge fan of the denim jacket, I knew this outfit wouldn't be complete without one. With California's every-changing weather this week, this Acne Tag Milk Denim Jacket would be a great way to top off this get-up.
6) Working well in tandem with the purse I chose, I thought these Michael Kors Leather Sandals would be a great option for walking through vineyards and not getting too clumsy after a few glasses of wine!

Does this outfit make you want to roam the vineyards with me?
What else might be included in your wine-tasting essentials?

I can't wait to see what you all create for today! Though I'm a little behind {ok, a lot behind} on commenting, it doesn't mean I don't appreciate all the hard work each and every one of my Friday's Fancies faithful puts into their posts. I promise to get back on my game soon! With the blogger mayhem last week and limited internet access while on vacation, it's been rough to stay on top of things, 
so I hope you'll understand! 

For next week: create your perfect Memorial Day weekend outfit!! 
{mine may or may not have a Cape vibe--along with a birthday twist!}

Even though I'm away, you better believe I'll be checking my blog like crazy to see your {what are sure to be} gorgeous Friday's Fancies! If you're new to the concept, check out this post :) 
Have a fantastic Friday, everyone! Much love! xoxo {av}

  7. Ladies, am I missing something with the "prompts"? I wasn't aware there is a prompt for the next week - with the exception of today of course. And I must say I wouldn't wear "my outfit" to a wine tasting. Anyhow, I do love it. Have a fabulous Friday.

  21. I love the wine tasting outfit! We're taking a trip to Sonoma in September and now I've got some inspiration -- thanks!

  22. What a perfect wine country look, and thank goodness for the warm, clear weather you got for your balloon ride! I'd probably add an enormous hat for the inevitable sunburn I get, and a GIANT bottle of water!
