Fancy Friday...Color Me Happy

Happy April! 

I believe Spring is finally trying to come back to my neck of the woods since the sun has crept back out this morning and highs are supposed to get back to 60.   Considering we've been in the 40's and wet most of the week, I'll take it! 

I'm sure y'all have noticed that bold pops of color are still popular again this year so that is what I'll be focusing on today.

First up is this  Pinwheel Tank from Anthropologie.They are calling this pink though it appears more coral to me. Either way, it's definitely bright and cheerful. I can see it with a white pair of capris and some cute sandals.

Pure Radiance Scarf
This happy scarf could brighten up even the drabbest of days.

Frye Joy Huarache Sling
These platforms, in my opinion, are the perfect shade of yellow for adding an unexpected pop of color to your Spring/Summer wardrobe. But, if yellow is just not your thing, they come in a total of 11 colors, including purple, blue, orange, black and green!

Pleated Front Shell
I'm loving the tropical feel of this colorful shell from The Limited.

Posie-cure Shoe Clips
I found these adorable little things marked down to $7.99 at ModCloth. I know they're shoe clips but you could also clip them to a purse or in your hair or maybe on a cardigan. Fancy Schmancy.

Leprechaun Luck Rainbow Bracelet
Because who couldn't benefit from a lucky leprechaun bracelet?

Hive and Honey Shirred Ruffle Henley
Ruffles and it's 100% soft jersey cotton? What is not to love?

Mar y Sol - opal multi-color raffia clutch
I swear I saw this in Real Simple like a year ago and fell in love with it then. It recently showed up again in an edition of Lucky and I have fallen in love with it all over again. I just wish it were about half the $65 price tag.

San Pedro Pencil Skirt
I never would have thought about a pencil skirt in a bright color like this but this yellow one from Anthropologie caught my eye right away. Also comes in a bright turquoise.

Women's Embroidered Drop-Waist Jersey Tops
The beginning of the description of this top from Old Navy cracked me up... quaint on top, flirty along the bottom... something about that reminded me of the in the front, party in the back! What can I say? You can take the girl outta the 80's but you can't take the 80's outta the girl! Ha.
Since we are talking about bright colors today, I'm showing the "aqualicious" one but this comes in sooo many other colors and it's on sale right now for $9.50!

Beaded Bracelets
When I first saw this I thought it was just one bracelet but it is actually a set of 10. So beachy.

Cotton Knit Scarf
How's this for a bold pop of color? Also comes in 'cherry'. Marked down from $29.50 to $9.97 at Land's End Canvas.

The Heritage Ballet Flat
This Land's End Canvas suede flat reminds me so much of my red pair by Nine West that I have just about worn to death because they are the most comfortable pair of flats I have ever owned. Oh, I need these!

Dana Buchman Reese Satchel Bag
Love this shade of green.

Lightweight Zip-Up Hoodie
I know a hoodie is not the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word 'fancy' but this would be perfect for chilly nights at the baseball field.  Comes in 7 different colors.  $24.99 at Chadwick's. 

And that is all I've got for today.  Y'all have a great first day of April!  Oh, and don't forget to watch your back!...It's April Fool's Day.  I must concoct a clever prank to play on the boys this afternoon because what kind of mother would I be if I didn't? MuaHaHaa!!!
