Fancy Friday...TGIF!

What with the nosebleed in the car, scraped up bloody ankle, a creeper squirrel, a wiener dog that has decided 5 am is the perfect time to wake me up for a snack, getting informed on the cost of a root canal, and a list of second grade spelling words including caw (as in the sound a crow makes),  trough (as in what a cow drinks out of) and several other words containing either ough or aw, I could not be happier that Friday has at once arrived. 

I've found some really cute, fanciful things to show y'all this week and while I was surfing around, I kept coming across camouflage over and over again.  Remember those cute little  orange flats I showed you last week and pointed out that while they do also come in camo, I would not recommend going there? 

Well, apparently I'm not completely in touch with what is hot right now but this still doesn't change the fact that I, personally, will not be sporting a pair of camouflage flats. Wasn't camo hot at one time back in the 80s?  Or did I dream that?  Some of my 80s details have gotten a little fuzzy.

In addition to the camo trend, leopard print also seems to be pretty hot right now and that is one thing I will sport, in moderation of course...  

Like this Michael Kors Leopard Belt  I found at Zappos...

Ruched Scarf
Love this scarf I found at Coldwater Creek.  It just says 'Spring' to me.  And it also comes in a pretty pink shade.

Embellished Stripe Poncho Tunic
I found this subtle sheer tunic at Boston Proper. Love, love, love.

Lucky Paloma Embroidered Smock Top
These bohemian style tops suck me right in every.single.time.  Puts me in touch with my inner hippie chick or takes me back to my 70s childhood, or something.  And I apologize, but if you wanna see it, you must click the link because that is one testy photo.  

AEO Mitered Stripe Tote 
I just thought this was really cute and just looks so warm weatherish/beachy. And it comes in 3 different color combinations.

Strappy Two Tone High Heel Sandals
And speaking of warm weather, these would make the perfect sexy spring/summer sandals, wouldn't they?  The best part is, they'd go with anything.

Karen Kane Floral Embroidered Smock Blouse
I have a couple of Karen Kane pieces that I found at Belk, one of my all-time favorite shopping spots. They almost always have some sort of sale going on.  I'd love to find this on a sale rack...

Etienne Aigner Turquoise Stretch Bracelet
I also found this there.  Turqoise is another trend that seems to be popping up all over the place right now and I just can't get enough of it.
The Casual Trench
I found this lightweight cotton trench at Chadwick's for 39.99.  It comes in 6 different colors.

Rosette Flyaway Cardigan
 $26.95 at NY&Co. and comes in 3 other colors.  Sweet!

Matte Silvertone Flower Bracelet
How is this for fancy? There's also a necklace and earrings to match but I don't like to be that matchy matchy myself.

Tribeca Studio Faux-Wrap Dress
I don't think a Spring dress gets any more perfect than this.
Patent Trim Satchel Bag
I normally gravitate more toward the hobo or shoulder bags but I'm really loving this satchel bag I spotted at Spiegel.

Miz Mooz Women's Gina Mary Jane Pump

Happy Friday, y'all!


  1. I'll take the bracelet and Mary Jane heels, please and thank you! Oh, how I adore a Mary Jane! I'll be anxiously awaiting the package :) and what scraped ankle? and those spelling words? Tough! (I crack myself up)

  2. Karen Kane is one of my newest favorite brands:)

    Shopping makes girls happy!

  3. Love that tote! Need my address? ;)

    Hope you have a relaxing weekend!

  4. These are lovely ... but I can't imagine myself in any of them. I think I would need to "step up" to clothes like this gradually.

  5. Love the strappy sandals and the trench...actually I really REALLY love that trench!

  6. OMG those are all adorable! I think my favorite is the rosette cardigan, so cute!!

  7. Good Lawd I need to stop visiting on weekends... you are killing my budget... but you always find the best tops!

    This Mamma took all week to recover from Monday's late night (still worth it) and both kids had projects due yesterday... and as you well know, when they are in 1st and 2nd grade, it's not like they can do them independently.

    TGIF...I mean S! :)

  8. When are we going shopping together?

  9. Must be root canal week - you're about the 5th person I've heard who's suffering. Ouch.
