{friday’s fancies}

So this week didn’t go by nearly as fast as last week, but I am looking forward to this weekend! It’s a busy one, with two {potentially three} clients ranging from North Orange County to Seal Beach to Santa Barbara. I see a lot of driving in the next two days…

Anyway, I was really excited about this week’s Friday’s Fancies theme, and definitely think we should do it again! We get to model our outfit after something we’ve found online recently, and I knew exactly which outfit I wanted to use as soon as I heard the theme.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the original source for this picture since I found it on Pinterest {linked from the homepage of a Tumblr…}. I do love that site, but it can be a pain sometimes when trying to give credit to the original source. Does anyone know who this is or where it came from? I would love to give credit where credit is due!

Anyway, here is my interpretation for this week’s Friday’s Fancies:

Friday's Fancies

{shirt, bag, scarf, skirt, shoes}

I’m going to be driving a lot this weekend, so comfort is key. With this outfit, I would be comfortable and chic, a necessity in a job like mine! Nobody wants to hire a frumpy coordinator… {this outfit isn’t frumpy, is it?}

I wasn’t having the best day today {writing this on Thursday}, but something really turned it around. I decided I needed to get out of my office on my lunch, and went to the nearest mall {which is five minutes away…dangerous}.

That, my friends, was my receipt from New York and Company. And while most of you are probably thinking New York and Company, really Joelle?!?, I can assure you that my purchases are actually very stylish and practical. I got three pencil skirts {black, gold, and fuchsia}, two dresses {hot pink and gray}, two suit jackets, and a whole bunch of belts and jewelry. I hope I can actually get my s*** together soon and take some pictures for you!

Anyway, I hope you all go link up with {av} over at Long Distance Loving with your own Friday’s Fancies this week!

And I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Such a PERFECT look for work! I love that shade of green? or Olive? I'm not even sure what it's called?? But I really am loving it with the brown & light blue! It's such a unique but really spunky color combo!

Have a nice weekend!!!

I died when I saw that picture on Instagram yesterday! How did you do that!? Did you have coupons or were they just having a ridiculous sale? And your Friday's Fancies outfit is soooo not frumpy! I love it!
