friday's fancies #30.

Howdy folks! Happy Friday :) I'm so excited for this day to finally roll around--{cv} and I are headed back to my hometown in Indiana this weekend. It's our first trip back since our reception last July. We're going back to celebrate the wedding of a dear family friend and I couldn't be more excited! The outfit I've pulled together for my Friday's Fancies is inspired by the fact that I'll be heading straight from work to the airport. I would certainly rock this little get-up, if money were no object...


1) These Elizabeth and James Park Sunglasses are super classic with a touch of femininity. They are also a bit more substantial the Wayfarers we all know and love.
2) Perfect for a summer Friday in the office, this Marc by Marc Jacobs Smudge Dot Jersey Dress is both playful and colorful. I'm in love.
3) Any of you who know me outside of the blog know this about me: I adore JIF Peanut Butter sandwiches. {My blogger profile even says so!} When I spotted this Kenneth Jay Lane Peanut Necklace, I thought it would make for a fun conversation piece at work and at the airport ;)
4) I would take a pair of these Kenneth Jay Lane Award Winning Earrings in every color if I could. They would most definitely make a beautiful statement with each wear.
5) Big enough to hold {cv}'s iPad and my book, this Chloe Paraty Medium leather bag would make for one stylish "personal item". I love the soft caramel color. It's simply stunning.
6) It's cheesy but true, these Repetto Leather Ballerinas remind me of a sparkle-less pair of Dorothy's ruby slippers, so it's only appropriate to include them in a post about a trip home. They also work perfectly with the fun colors in that fab Marc by Marc Jacobs dress!

I hope you like this outfit which translates from work to jetset in a click of those red flats! I can't wait to see your Friday's Fancies this week! The whole point of FF 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 some fun!

Last week, I introduced a new feature for Friday's Fancies--the "like" champion :)
Everyone give a round of applause to the first champ, Amanda!

Last but certainly far from least, I want to make sure you all tune back in on Monday for a very important post! I'm teaming up with Danielle, the beautiful blogger behind breakfast at toast--and we've got something BIG to share. This little logo is a little sneak peek into what is coming in a few short days...be sure to come back in a few days to find out what's behind the S.

Until then, have a fantastic weekend--and I cannot wait to see your Friday's Fancies! So much love to all of you! xoxo {av}
