Friday's Fancies

Wow... did this week feel crazy long? or is it just me? No matter. Friday is here! One more day of work then I'm free and have a super fun weekend planned. Plus spring is well on it's way! Sunday is going to be 58 and sunny! YES!

This week's Friday's Fancies theme is Lace Love. Now I know what your going to say... this dress doesn't look lacy... more shiny. I know, I know the sequin has made another appearance. But when I saw this dress by Dorothy Perkins, how could I say no? Lace and sparkle in one? Yes ma'am.

I was a little conflicted on how to style it, so I went two ways. Day and Night (because a sequin/lacy dress is totally appropriate for work).


I'm so loving the metallic cap toe look... I picked essentially the same shoe, I'm okay with it. And that watch? Oh my gosh. Don't get me wrong, I love my chunky Micheal Kors, but it may be time to branch out a bit... and my birthday is only 7 weeks away. Hmm. Anyways, hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! If you want to follow along find me on instagram or twitter.

Cap toe shoes are fabulous. Have you seen all of the DIY ideas for them? Totes easy to make. And if your birthday is that close, it's time to really get on that 25 before 25 list. 5k soon? Pick one. Let's do it.
