friday's fancies #82.

Happy Friday's Fancies! It's finally {color}block party time! As this outfit evolved, I realized it looked a little patriotic, which wasn't my goal at all {though it may be my inner American Studies major talking!}. In reality, red and blue are true compliments on the color wheel, a major element of successful color blocking ;) I'd like to think I rocked the color block, but I'll let you be the judge...


This vibrant BB Dakota Penelope Dress would work all summer long, but the pièce de la résistance is its back! Another feature which made me happy: the $60 pricetag :)

I've professed my love of Ann Taylor heels before, but I'm hoping a 40% off coupon circulates soon because these Darcy Leather High Heel Sandals need to be mine. They're super versatile and fabulous!

Since I have a whole pinterest board devoted to cobalt blue, it was an easy task to track down a great bag in this shade. I didn't have to look any further than this Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Natasha Crossbody Bag. It's perfect for walking around a farmer's market or sightseeing along the coast.

These Gucci Sunglasses are large and in charge--exactly how I like my sunglasses. I only wish I could splurge on a bold and beautiful pair like these!

Elyssa Bass outdid herself with these Blue Chalcedony Double-Drop Earrings. Though I've seen similar styles, this rich blue hue had me singing from the rooftops. #love

  25. I'm a huge fan of lime green and hot pink color combination. It's pretty recent but all the neon colors out there lately make me gravitate to it!
