{friday’s fancies}

Is it just me, or did the first work week of 2012 go by quickly? I know it was only a four day week for me, but I’m being optimistic. I’m hoping that this is a sign of good things to come!

This weekend will be very laid back. We somehow managed to make ourselves busy over the next few days, but it’s a fun kind of busy, filled with friends and food. Just my kind of weekend!

This week’s theme for Friday’s Fancies is putting your best foot forward. Everyone knows that I love a good pair of shoes, so I’m sure it isn’t too difficult to imagine how excited I was to design an outfit around a fabulous pair of shoes. And I think this week’s outfit is the perfect outfit to start off a year full of Friday’s Fancies!

{dress, ring, necklace, purse, shoes}

As soon as I saw those shoes, I just fell in love! I knew that I needed to get a little out of my comfort zone, and pair it with another really bold color, which is why I chose the turquoise. And while that dress is absolutely beautiful, it’s almost a blank canvas. I think it all came together so well!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend friends, and I can’t wait to see all of your Friday’s Fancies too!
