friday's fancies #61.

Happy Friday, friends! After a busy week, I love having Friday's Fancies as my light at the end of the tunnel ;) This week, many of the Friday's Fancies faithful {82 to be exact!} are paired up with one another--a true testament to the wonderful community you have all helped to create. I'm in awe!

Since the weather can't make up its mind this winter, I paying homage to colder temperatures with a big, fuzzy sweater. This outfit board should also include a fireplace, don't you think? sigh. Since we're meeting with our builder this weekend, I'll have to remind him a fireplace is a non-negotiable in our dream home!


1) All winter, I have been aching to rock the Fair Isle. This By Malene Birger Anninas Chunky-Knit Wool Cardigan would create a look which is far from frumpy. I just wish my budget would allow for it ;)
2) A gorgeous light gray like the one in this Rebecca Minkoff Love Spell Tri-Zip Satchel would make this bag a great addition to any wintry wardrobe. It most definitely cast a spell on me.
3) I really need to bite the bullet and get a pair of black jeans, but until then, I will dream of these Burberry Brit Mid-rise Skinny Jeans. The extra little details make them the ideal pair for me!
4) The bold beauties in this Shashi Eclipse Bracelet Set would make a statement and amp up the fun factor in this ensemble.
5) With so much action happening in the sweater, I didn't want overstated earrings, so these Michael Kors PavĂ© Pyramid Earrings were the perfect compromise. They add an ounce of sparkle to this get-up!
6) Right down to the toes, I'm swooning over these Giuseppe Zanotti Metallic Leather Captoe Ballet Flats. Though I know most women love heels, I am absolutely a flats fiend. I only wish I could add these to my collection! 

Never-ending thanks to those of you linking up today! I am so excited to see your outfits and collaborations :) I just love this family of ours! If you want to join in the Friday's Fancies fun in future weeks, pretty please email me--and you'll get the themes {and future opportunities for blog swaps!} in your email every Monday. All my love to each of you today! So excited to see your looks!

  6. Those flats are divine and I can't believe how little I've gotten to wear my cozy sweaters this year. Good luck with the builder meeting and I fully support the non-negotiable-ness of a fireplace. ;)
