Friday's Fancies



Today's Friday's Fancies is a colorful one - meaning that I'm in the summer-time mood and want to embrace it for all it's worth.  We're leaving next Wednesday for a brief beach vacation and I couldn't be more excited for it.  I would love to wear this outfit one evening after spending the day swimming in the ocean and basking in the sun with a cocktail in hand.  I've been swooning over this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress ever since I saw it in an ad in Marie Claire (or was it Lucky? or both?).  It's gorgeous and vibrant and exactly what I wish I could twirl in on warm summer days and nights....

Do you like to link-up to {av}'s Friday's Fancies? I love putting outfits together and I love the idea of being able to throw whatever I feel like in the mix regardless of price.  It's an easy way for me to fantasize about fashion I guess!
