Friday's Fancies

I've been doing some thinking lately. Since I'm going to be moving to a whole new city where I don't know anyone, I'm going to have a completely fresh start. If I want to, I can totally reinvent myself. So who do I want to be as a law student? I'm not sure, but it's made me realize that I want to push myself out of my comfort zone.

This look is a tad on the edgy side for me (which is a look I rarely embrace), growth right?

Prabal Gurung full skirt dress / Nine West flat / Low heel shoes / John Lewis black patent handbag, $59 / Marc by Marc Jacobs stainless steel jewelry, $250 / Amrita Singh dangle earrings / Rose necklace / Lulu Guinness striped umbrella


I loved the prabal dress from target earlier this year and when I saw the umbrella I knew exactly what direction I wanted to go.

What do y'all have planed for the weekend? I'm going to be running around town enjoying the spring weather while it lasts, working on my DC bucket list and taking a ton of pictures on my fancy camera. Get excited folks. You are about to be inundated with probably pretty terrible pictures for a while, but I'm excited, so you should be too!

Happy Friday!

Those rain boots would come in handy in NOLA. Believe me keep a pair tucked in your bag because it rains every day during the summer even if it is only for 30 minutes.

Emily,

I love the dress you picked! That is stunning! I have to imagine it will look amazing on, too.

Also, I am loving (LOVING!) your site design. I guess I'm a sucker for gold glitter, but man, it is really gorgeous!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Those rain boots are wonderful!! Great outfit! And new towns are great chances to reinvent yourself. I've done a bit of reinventing since I moved here.
