Fly Away

17 Feb

Today is a special day in the Friday Fancies world, {av} is linking up with Lisa from Elembee, Etc. for a travel-oriented theme. This seemed perfectly appropriate since one week from today I will be on an airplane jetting off to Austin, Texas. This weekend I plan on doing some preparation shopping for the trip and creating a Friday’s Fancy is the perfect way to draw some inspiration.

(1,2,3,4)

I love the idea of mixing feminine and rustic touches. It reminds me of my girl, T-Swift and makes me feel like a true cowgirl.

Holiday Party

8 Dec

The season is among us, you know what I’m talking about, the Ugly Sweater Party season! While I am all for festive holiday cocktail dresses and sparkly skirts, my favorite theme is Ugly Sweater. Its super comfy and cozy and the pressure to look beautiful is never there. I usually play up the awkwardness of it and put a big green or red bow in my hair. Confession time: In the past, I have always borrowed a sweater of my mothers that don’t look that far off from the one below. Not sure why she still owns them but I’m not complaining! Head on over to visit {av} to see some more Holiday Party attire.

Boots: Minnetonka Front Lace Knee High Boots – $80 / Sweater: American Apparel Vintage – $35

Legging: J Brand – $195 / Necklace: Spike the Punch – $36

Black Friday

25 Nov

I have yet to cross shopping-on-black-Friday off my bucket list. We always spend Thanksgiving day, night and the day after with my whole family. Yes, one big sleep over. I look forward to it every year and as much as I love shopping, I would rather spend the day with my cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. However, if I were to hit the stores, I know one thing for sure..I would have to be comfortable. This to me means jeggins, chunky sweaters and simple jewelry. Since this is Friday’s Fancies I had to throw in my dream Chanel bag. (I actually would give up a Thanksgiving celebration with the family for that Chanel bag!)

Triple Threat

18 Nov

Lately all I have wanted to do is be cozy. Sit by a fire with a special boy in a comfy outfit, sip hot cocoa spiked with baileys and just snuggle. Too bad said boy does not currently exist. Oh well, at least I will have my outfit ready when he comes.

Think Pink

21 Oct

This weeks Friday’s Fancies is all about my favorite color, pink! I had to use self-control to not choose each item in some sort of pink hue. October is Breast Cancer awareness month and everything seems to take on the theme of pink, even the NFL. Oh hey, future husband Tom.

I think this may be my most favorite FF yet..I am so tempted to buy this whole outfit minus the fact it is FAR away from every fitting in my budget but hey, isn’t that point?

3. Anything autumn themed.

Falling for Autumn: Day 3

5 Oct

As I write this, it is raining outside which always makes me want to curl up with a blanket and cup of something warm. It also makes  me want to dress in cozy clothing, specifically sweaters. I long for this time of year, when jeans and sweaters are all you need. Once winter comes and the layers and snow boots comes into the picture – not so much. Just one more reason why I love fall…

In the third post on all the reason’s why I love fall..today’s is dedicated specially to comfy, cozy sweaters. Here are just a few of the hundreds many I need want.

 

B.B. Dakota Botswich Blanket Coat – $130

Blanket coat? Need I say more.

Vince Rugby Stripe Hi Low Sweater – $295

Missoni Cardigan – $440


Madewell Striped Cashmere Lokni Cardigan – $168

I would like one of each please to keep my warm and comfy this fall, thanks!

The Cozy Side of Fall

23 Sep

Every day is starting to feel more and more like fall and  I couldn’t be happier. Fall is by far my most favorite season. It involves some of my favorite smells (wood stoves burning, pumpkin, apples) favorite temperatures (sweaters, leggings and boots with no coat required) and some of my favorite holidays (Thanksgiving and Halloween). I am excited to put away my sandals and pull out my boots or buy some new ones and begin dressing for this perfect season with a pumpkin Latte in hand of course. Check out my Friday’s Fancy below and head on over to visit {av} to see even more!
