friday's fancies #78.

A very happy Friday to each of you! I'm infinitely excited for this round of Friday's Fancies! It is quite possible that the Memorial Day Weekend is one of my favorite of the whole year. Christmas never falls on a reliable day of the week, but Memorial Day most certainly does. Being a May 29th baby, this holiday is near and dear to my heart. Though my birthday doesn't fall exactly on the holiday this year, you better believe I'll be celebrating as if it did while we're out on the Cape ;) If my budget {and body type!} allowed it, I'd be sporting this muted patriotic ensemble...


Though I may stray away from halter tops in real life because of certain {how shall I say} physical restraints, I could wear this stunning Trina Turk Imma Draped Halter Top in my dreams ;)

For the nautical touch, this Gorjana Anchor Necklace is the ideal accessory. Without being big and overpowering, this dainty necklace still makes a fabulous statement.

If one nod to my nautical side wasn't enough, these J.Crew Nautical Stripe Shorts do the trick. I'm a sucker for anything striped--so when I spotted these beauties, it was love at first sight.

Perfect for a car ride out to the Cape, this Tory Burch Large Straw Square Tote holds plenty of reading material and sunscreen--and is stylish all at the same time!

Easy to pack but not short on style, these Kate Spade Verona Sandals scream summer {and happiness}.

These classic {but far from boring} Stella McCartney Rounded Sunglasses made this #FridaysFancies because they could easily make the same list five years down the line. Gorgeous, enough said.
