friday's fancies #71.

Happy Friday! I've been waiting for this week's Friday's Fancies. Why? I'm in dire need of some inspiration on how to wear one of this spring's hottest trends: florals. Every week, I get ideas from all of you on how to "make it work," as Tim Gunn would say. The outfit below seems perfect for a bright and cheery Easter brunch, though we don't have plans which require such a fashion forward get-up. In my book, half the fun is being able to pretend where I'd actually wear the outfit ;) Enjoy!


1) I'll admit I found this springy and sweet Stripe Pico Shirt from Madewell before I found the floral fabulousness for my bottom half.
2) With the stripes and florals in this ensemble, this Kate Spade Beverly Boulevard Short Necklace will provide a little balance ;) 
3) This Alice + Olivia Riley A-Line Skirt may be a bit loud, but the florally goodness in this beauty cannot be overlooked.
4) Tory Burch nails it with this Robinson Envelope Clutch. Simple and chic, it is versatile enough to rock with almost any outfit this spring and summer. 
5) These Elizabeth and James Prim Wedges take a backseat to the patterns in this outfit, but they still hold their own.

  14. sucha cute outfit! It would be perfect for Easter this weekend. I didn't get around to making a flower power board (that feels like a confession) and my wardrobe could seriously use the punch of color. I may end up wearing grey on Sunday...a bit tragic!
