Weddings on my mind

26 Aug

Today I am linking up with {av} from Long Distance Loving for Friday’s Fancies. This week’s theme is “wedding attire” which seemed super appropriate since wedding’s are the only thing on my mind as of late. I dream of having my wedding in early fall, think first week in October, and while I could day-dream ALL day about what I would wear as a bride, I decided to create a look for a guest at my beautiful wedding.

I do not want the wedding to be too casual or too formal, a perfect mix would be ideal. Think blazers and khakis, cocktail dresses and fun shoes. My main focus would just be for everyone to have fun, however, if given the chance, I would dress every single one of my guests. Crazy? Maybe a little.

When in doubt wear red

12 Aug

For today’s Friday Fancies {av} challenged us to wear red. While I love this color and it’s ability to make an outfit pop more, appear more polished and ooze confidence, it’s not a color I own much of. While creating this post I tried to think of my own red clothing and realized I have nothing. The only red shirts I own are t-shirts from my sorority where our colors were Cardinal and Straw (a nicer way of saying red and yellow or McDonald’s colors).

When reading magazines lately I have noticed a trend in red pants and have decided I NEED to invest in a pair. I can’t decide if I want red jeans, red chinos or cropped red dress pants…I’m leaning towards the jeans. I love anything nautical, preppy and classic so red pants paired with a classic sailor shirt seems like my ideal fall outfit. Pair that with unexpected leopard print Sperry’s to throw in an unexpected twist.
