friday's fancies #28.

So happy it's Friday! I'll bet you are too. In the midst of a crazy week, I always look forward to creating my Friday's Fancies post and anxiously awaiting all the gorgeous looks from each of you! Getting to dream big and forget about pricetags is a nice break from reality too, I must say ;)

The theme for this week comes from {jm} at Seashells + Southern Belles, a longtime Friday's Fancies Faithful and a big beach lover. She's also one of the sweetest bloggers I've come to know! Don't worry if you created another fun look for your weekend plans--I'm just throwing out a theme to help get the creative juices flowing this late in the week for those of you who need it...

As promised, this is my "nautical by nature" look...hope you enjoy!


1) I've loved this dress for months now...and I finally have a good excuse to use it! Milly does it again with their Sailboats Lily Sundress, an easy dress which plays right along with the nautical theme. It also looks like it hits a bit higher, which I love!
2) I feel like everyone should own a pair of Ray-Ban Aviators and a pair of their Wayfarers. Too bad I look like a complete goofball in Aviators though ;) Since this is my Friday's Fancies, I'll pretend they look fab. I can do that, right?
3) Against a very feminine dress, I thought this Michael Kors Gold-Plated Wrap Chronograph Watch created a nice contrast. My teeny tiny wrists aside, I'd love to have this beauty in my jewelry box.
4) Since I'm trying to be slightly realistic about my weekend here, I know I'd need to toss in a scarf like this Cashmere Weave Scarf from Yves Saint Laurent. After a crazy hot week, I'm not complaining about some slightly cooler temps for the weekend!
5) Not only am I loving their handbag line, I'm also loving the accessories from Whiting & Davis. This Jailer Key Ring would make a great gift--and would serve as the perfect place to put the keys to my beautiful yacht. Yes. I went there ;)
6) Though my klutzy self could not rock these on a boat, I would certainly throw these Stuart Weitzman Crocheted Crisscross Espadrilles on to take a stroll on solid ground. I love the crocheted straps. They just feel right.
7) The ultimate accessory in a nautical Friday's Fancies has to be this "little" yacht. A girl can dream!

Any fun ideas for future Friday's Fancies themes? 
{Comment below or shoot me an email: I'm all ears!}

Super excited to see what you all create this week! If you're new to the Friday's Fancies phenomenon, don't fret--check out this post for a little guidance or email me. All it really takes is a little imagination. 

Don't forget to get your last minute entries in for my 
Whiting & Davis giveaway! You have until Sunday at 
8:00pm EST to enter! Have a fantastic weekend--and 
thanks again for taking the time to link up! 
You fill my heart so, so much! xoxo {av}
