friday's fancies #64.

Hello hello! I'm so excited to be teaming up with Lisa at Elembee, Etc. for a super special Friday's Fancies. We're dreaming really big this week by concocting a fanciful outfit to wear on a fabulous vacation! One destination on my travel bucket list? Greece! I would love to wear this number while strolling the streets in Santorini...

1) If you ask me, this J.Crew Seabreeze Maxidress screams Santorini. Wouldn't this brilliant blue be simply magical? I'd be sure to pair it with some SPF, in true sun savvy fashion. 
2) These Kate Spade All Aboard Stud Earrings are perfect for a day at the seaside. I'd love for them to magically appear in my jewelry box ;)
3) I spied this Tuleste Market Braided Marble Necklace and it now occupies a place on my ultimate summer wardrobe wishlist. It could go with nearly everything--and would really make the cobalt of the dress pop! 
4) Flat and functional, these Diane von Furstenberg Klee Toe Ring Flat Sandals would be the ideal pair to toss in a suitcase for an adventure in Greece.
5) With a little extra glam, these Gucci Oversized Sunglasses would amp up any vacation.
6) Though this is seriously an investment piece, I simply adore this Yves Saint Laurent Gold-Plated Rope-Inspired Cuff. I could wear it all summer long in the Ocean State. le sigh.

In the midst of a long, cold winter, I hope you all enjoyed this little chance to fly away! Many thanks again to Lisa for this incredible theme suggestion--be sure to stop by Elembee, Etc. to see her weekly "getaways"! So excited to see where each of you picked as an escape this week :) Thank you all so so much for taking the time to link up today! Have a fabulous {and hopefully long} weekend!

  27. I'm obsessed with this outfit you put together! I would wear the whole ensemble in a second. The blue shade of that dress is amazing, and you picked the perfect accessories-the white necklace would look so great, and the little touches of gold and brown? Perfection. This is the perfect breezy, island getaway outfit!

  45. What do you use to make your photo collages? I'm guessing you're going to say a Mac computer.
