friday's fancies #35.

Phew! It's Friday! I don't know about you, but I'm thrilled beyond belief that it's here...{cv} and I are staying in New England this weekend, which suits me just fine. From the fabulous bfrend bracelet giveaway and the very exciting annoucement of rendez-vous: new england {not to mention the fabulous Boston Bloggers event on Wednesday night!}, it's been a fun and exciting blog-filled week for me!

This weekend, we'll be bopping down to Newport to see the Doobie Brothers in concert--I grew up listening to them and am so excited to check them off my "in-person" checklist ;) On Saturday, I'm attending my first swap up in Boston and I couldn't be more excited! {cv} and I will spend Sunday getting life in order after a ridiculously busy month of July. And if money were no object, I'd be sporting
this snazzy polka-dot get-up, walking the streets of Newport and "listen{ing} to the music"...


1) Seeing as Splendid is one of my all-time favorite brands, it's no surprise I fell for this Polka-Dot Voile Blouse at first sight. This lovely top would be just right for a summer night out!
2) These Tiffany & Co. Tiffany Circlet Earrings are an amped up version of these Banana Republic beauties that I gave my bridesmaids last year. I wear them almost every day and my 'maids do too. Maybe one day {cv} will upgrade my CZs ;)
3) When I first spotted these 3.1 Phillip Lim Knot-Front Textured Silk Jersey Shorts, I knew they had to be a part of my Friday's Fancies. They're elegant and dressy, without trying too hard.
4) I positively adore this bfrend Silver Queen Dainty Cobra Bracelet from The Doctor's Closet. Not only is Monika, the beauty and the brains behind this line, the sweetest, she makes this eye candy for all of us to enjoy. {And don't forget--you can win your own from the popsicle series this week!}
5) Jimmy Choo outdid himself with these gorgeous Polar Patent Leather Espadrilles. I would love to add these to my summer shoe repertoire. sigh.
6) This outfit wouldn't be complete without a little pop of color and this 3.1 Phillip Lim Nashiki Clutch fulfills that requirement with ease! It's small and stylish--and really packs a punch.

  1. I love the top and the clutch so much! Sounds like you've got a great weekend ahead of you - so exciting! We'll be cruising around on the boat at Kentucky Lake this weekend and I'm pretty excited about it. Hope yours is fantastic!

    PS - the linky tool isn't working for me and I can't even contact the link in the error message. I might be sending you my FF to post since I'm leaving first thing in the morning. Thanks!
