friday's fancies #75.

A very happy Friday to you! With the Derby and Cinco de Mayo on the docket this weekend, I couldn't decide on just one Friday's Fancies theme. I thought it would be best to leave that up to you! Growing up just an hour from the Kentucky Derby festivities, I have always had a soft spot for the races. My dream Derby outfit would be much like the one below! If you want a peek at my Cinco de Mayo inspiration, check out my post on College Prep :)

Disclaimer: This is a very Lilly Pulitzer and Kate Spade-heavy Friday's Fancies post--indulge me!

1) The bold bow on this Lilly Pulitzer Amberly Strapless Dress had me at hello! The perennially preppy combo of pink and green just pops against the solid bow.
2) This softer Kate Spade Little Miss Kaelin Crossbody Bag was the ideal choice against the fabulous Pink Twinkle pattern from Lilly.
3) With six possible colors, I'd love to make a stack with these colorful Lilly Pulitzer Knotty Bangles!
4) These Kate Spade Gumdrop Earrings provide a sweet touch {literally}, without distracting from all the fabulous in this ensemble.
5) These bold Kate Spade Ginger Sandals provide the perfect pop of color.
6) It wouldn't be a Derby look without a gorgeous statement hat like this one from Eric Javits.

This Friday would only be better if we could all be celebrating together! I simply cannot thank you enough for taking the time to linking up for Friday's Fancies. This family of ours is positively amazing--I'm in awe of you all each and every week.

P.S. Don't miss out on my guest posts today on these three fabulous blogs:
