friday's fancies #69.

A very happy Friday to you! This week, Friday's Fancies is devoted to a little something known as March Madness. Whether you're a basketball fan or not, I know most people have an allegiance to one team or another ;) Though my Georgetown Hoyas didn't make it past the round of 32, I'm still proud of them for making the Big Dance. As an Indiana native and the daughter of two IU alums, I am still excited to cheer on my Hoosiers tonight! Since the Hoyas are out of the mix, this is what I would wear our with my besties from Georgetown while still repping my blue and gray. 


1) Glamming up this ensemble is this stunning Parker Color Block Tank Dress. The sequins sold it for me, but the simplicity of the top half helped to balance this beauty.
2) With rolled up sleeves, I can just picture this J Brand Slim Stretch-Denim Jacket paired with the Parker dress. The sparkle factor is still there, but suddenly, the jean jacket makes the dress infinitely more versatile.
3) I own this Butter London '3 Free' Polish in Diamond Geezer and wearing it makes everything a little more fun. I add it to my normal nail routine with the fourth finger trick you see everywhere ;) I love the idea of sporting it with this ensemble because it kicks it up yet another notch.
4) By removing the heel factor, the idea of a jean jacket and a sparkly dress comes together--especially with these sweet J.Crew Lilibeth Patent Sandals
5) J.Crew nails it again with their Martha Bracelet. Paired with denim or sequins, it is the perfect complement to any outfit. I'm dying to get one on my wrist!
6) I know silver isn't technically gray, but for today's purposes, I'm pretending it is. This Metallic Satchel from the Cambridge Satchel brand keeps the shine factor going :)

This March Madness get-up may be slightly unconventional, but I'm still loving it. Even if you don't have an outfit devoted to your basketball team of choice, I'd love for you to link up an outfit you'd love to wear from this week :) Be sure to use your blog name so your blog gets the recognition it deserves!

I'm so grateful to have so many of you week after week...if you'd like to join this loving family, click here to add yourself to the mailing list! I can't wait to see what you all create. Have a very happy weekend--and I'll see you all back here on Monday!

  1. This outfit is amazing!! My school has a decent basketball team but was such a commuter school that nobody gets into sports :( We won the College World Series of baseball and still couldn't get students to come to the games. Sad!

  6. Sigh...I'm pretty much a dolt when it comes to basketball, I'm afraid. Maybe that's because I was excitedly looking up directly under the hoop after I'd just made a shot when I was about 6...and that ball smashed into my little face. Ah, memories!

    ANYWAY! I totally have that blue skirt!!! Found it at Forever 21, and I still haven't worn it. I WILL wear it soon!!
