friday's fancies #68.

Happy almost St. Patrick's Day! Though my blood is only 1/8 Irish, I still love all the festivities which surround this holiday. Since Friday's Fancies is all about dreaming big, here is what I would wear to a warm St. Patty's celebration in a destination like Savannah ;) 


1) The perfect dress to transition from spring to summer, this emerald green Parker Racer Pleat Dress was the clear winner for this week's Friday's Fancies! It is flirty without being overly revealing--and works beautifully with or without the blazer below.
2) I've had my eye out for months now for something like this Splendid Palm Beach Striped Blazer. It would pair beautiful with bold solids or fun florals. Though my spending freeze is still in effect, you better believe I'll be watching for this beauty to go on sale so I can rock it later this summer out on the cape :)
3) Since this outfit is a dreamy one, I can pick this Mulberry Braided Leather Belt. Sure, there are plenty of other braided belts out there--but this one just looked like the ideal choice to cinch the waist of the Parker dress.
4) It wouldn't be a Friday's Fancies from yours truly without a little touch of Kate Spade ;) These Double Exposure Earrings combine the navy from the blazer and emerald from the dress to tie it all together!
5) Who doesn't need a great pair of Fryes in their closet? I know I do! {Ok, if you're just not into cowboy boots, I understand--but bear with me here!} For more years than I can count, I have been waiting on just the right shade and shape and these 'Jane 14' Tall Pull-On Boots hit both of my requirements. I know what else I'll be saving for soon!
6) In my opinion, fantastic navy bags are hard to find, so when I spied this Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag, I knew it would be the ideal piece for this festive ensemble. Though it isn't green, it would be perfect to wear while traipsing down River Street and around the squares in Savannah.

  12. First of all, happy Friday and I L.O.V.E. that green dress. So cute! Secondly, I've tried entering my post twice and gotten errors. It's still not showing up, but I'm going to bet that it does and then you'll end up with two later in the day! I'll check back in a bit to make sure it works though :)
