Friday's Fancies


French connection dress, $188
Charlotte Olympia platform shoes, 550 GBP
Alexander wang handbag, $580
Bijoux Heart butterfly jewelry, $575
Yellow ring


Hooray for another Friday!  And another Friday's Fancies!  I'm very excited about this weekend in particular because we are going to a special wedding tomorrow to see our friends Daniel & Megan get hitched!  So many good friends are in town right now and we've already been hanging out like crazy.  Today is a rehearsal, tonight is a welcome/rehearsal dinner a few blocks down the street (hooray for stumbling home on foot later) and tomorrow is the wedding.  This weekend should be pretty awesome.

If money were no object, I would definitely want to wear this French Connection lace dress.  I love the color and the style of it and think it would be perfect for tomorrow's festivities.  I love how the sleeves are longish so it could be warm if the Chicago weather gets crazy.  The color is neutral enough that you could pair it with anything - I had a hard time deciding on which shoes to pick.  It's funny because I would NEVER wear those shoes since I wouldn't be able to last more than a few minutes in them, but they're playful and colorful and I couldn't resist.

What are you all up to this weekend? I hope something summery and fun!

i want yet don't need those shoes- although when my youngest was about three he said he thought i should wear heels all the time- and i asked him even pulling the wagon across the park and he thought that would be perfect.
