friday's fancies #142.

This week, #fridaysfancies is focused on what to wear when you're running around town. I think this is one theme which touches everyone. For the days I'm not running errands in workout clothes, I try to include at least one fun accessory. I'm amping up this basic outfit with a fun necklace and bold shoes. I keep the bag functional with a Longchamp--big enough for a laptop, but large enough to be burdensome. Some variation of this outfit is sure to be on high rotation as fall rolls in. Take a peek!

Everyone is welcome for Friday's Fancies--you don't have to share an 'errand chic' outfit to participate! In fact, you can share a blog post from any day this week :) As long as it is fashion-related, it is absolutely fair game. Click here to join the mailing list for more information! Started in January 2011, Friday's Fancies is one of the longest running fashion link-ups in the blogosphere. The ladies who loyally link up for #FridaysFancies are the best, so don't be afraid to join in the fun.

I have a little date with my main squeeze, John Mayer, tomorrow night. {cv} will be there too ;)
Soak up every minute of this August weekend, friends! See you Monday... xoxo {av}
