friday's fancies #29.

It's hard to resist a little smile when you wake up on a Friday and realize it's the last day of the work week {unless of course you're a nurse, a student, a mom, etc. who has a crazy schedule!}. Since the Friday's Fancies link-ups began back in early January, I've come to anticipate Fridays even more :)

Tonight, {cv} and I will be headed to Federal Hill, a neighborhood in Providence known for exquisite Italian food :) We'll be attending a work dinner of sorts, but it's sure to be a fun meal--not a boring, nod-your-head kind of dinner. Since it's a mix of people at his level, I could definitely wear this get-up I pulled together...it's summery but not too showy {if you catch my drift!}. I hope you like it...


1) Simple and feminine, I think everyone needs a piece like this J.Crew Cotton Blend Lace Top in their summer wardrobe. I am in love. sigh.
2) I needed a statement piece and these Kendra Scott Kingston Earrings fit the bill just perfectly :) I'm imagining that I'd have my hair pulled back in a cute little bun {if I could ever make a cute little bun with my big hair} and these beauties would be shining bright.
3) These Cara Accessories Crystal & Patina Metal Finish Bangles added a little pizzazz to this outfit--and take this get-up from day-time to night-time faster than I can type "lickety split".
4) Ok. I said I was in love with the J.Crew top and that was no lie. I have to admit though, I'm also very in love with these Tibi Pleat-Front Silk Shorts. The color, the cut, the everything. sigh {again}.
5) I simply adore this Proenza Schouler Medium Leather Satchel. I've seen this beauty in the blogosphere and had to include it with this outfit. I love how it pulls out the coral in both the bracelets and the sandals.
6) Speaking of footwear, I spied these Pelle Moda Bellum Sandals at Nordstrom last week and knew they needed to grace a Friday's Fancies post one week. They scream "happy shoes" to me. 

I sure hope you liked my "almost" summer night out get-up...I'm so excited to see what you 
pull together for your own Friday's Fancies! Remember: the goal is to dream BIG and create 
an outfit {or inspiration board} that you'd use for the weekend ahead if money were no object. 
Don't worry about pricetags--just have fun :) 


For those seasoned Friday's Fancies veterans {aka my Friday's Fancies faithful!}, I have a fab new feature for all of you. The hard work for your posts deserves some recognition, so you can now have people "like" your post--and get something in return. I'll do a little blurb in my post next Friday if you're the person with the most "likes". Here's the rundown...


So, {long distance loving} readers, pretty please vote for your favorite outfit of the week by 
"liking" it below! There's no way I could ever pick a winner, hence why I'm enlisting your help :) 

Hope you like this fun new feature of Friday's Fancies! As always, thank you for all the time and effort you put into your posts. You all ROCK, in every sense of the word. And don't forget: if you have a bright idea for a future Friday's Fancies theme, pretty please email me! Have a great day! xoxo {av}

P.S. If you want a "button" to use, here's a little something I created for you ;)
