After three years of Friday's Fancies, the holiday break taught me that a bigger life balance was achievable. Making a few small changes would absolutely change my world for the better. I recognized the quality of Friday's Fancies would grow exponentially if I was managing it once a month, rather than four. Moving forward, the first Friday of each month will be all about Friday's Fancies. As always, there is no requirement to follow the theme I laid out. Themes are simply suggestions to get the creative wheels turning. Though #FridaysFancies is changing somewhat, the underlying mission is still true: money shouldn't put a cap on the possibilities. Every Friday's Fancies ensemble starts a dreamy get-up and is meant to inspire future fashion choices.  This outfit, for example, would be perfect for facing a new day with new confidence and classic flair.

Moving forward, we'll be able to make Friday's Fancies an even better form of its former self. {As an FYI, the link-up will remain open throughout the entire months. Multiple entries from the same blog over the course of the month are permitted and encouraged.} Many thanks to those who have been with me on this Friday's Fancies journey since the beginning! I am so blessed to have such supportive co-conspirators. I can't wait to see how you make the new year your own in your ensembles! Have a happy weekend, friends! xoxo {av}
