friday's fancies #34.

Happy Friday! Since I spent Monday in Chicago, today feels more like Thursday--but I'm not complaining. This week, my Friday's Fancies pays homage to one of the fashion highlights of any summer: the little white dress (aka the LWD). I paired it with a bold emerald green to make that white pop. Take a peek!


1) From the moment I saw this Temperley London Mini Beatriz Dress, I knew it was love. I thought this LWD would be a stellar dress to sport in this heat wave. Despite the sleeves, it's gauzy feel just screams summer. 
2) If it's a Chloé, then it's hard not to love in my book. This Sally Medium Shoulder Bag is no exception. The gorgeous emerald green color and the envelope style had me at hello.
3) With so much going on in the dress and on my wrists, I thought these Marc by Marc Jacobs Small Faceted Studs would be just enough to keep things interesting!
4) These Diane von Furstenberg Opal Leather Wedge Sandals would be a fun choice for this outfit. Though I normally am a flats-loving gal, I'd take these wedges in a heartbeat. In multiple colors. ;)
5) As a May baby, I've always loved emeralds. I simply adore these Amrita Singh Richa Bangles because they come in my favorite green hue. They also do quite a lot to kick this outfit up a notch--or ten.
