Friday's Fancies: summer sweetness

summer sweetness

Emily and Fin olive dress, $89
Miss Sixty closed toe heels, $119
Dazed Dorothy vintage leather handbag, £120
Forever21 chain jewelry, $4.80
Necklace, $8

I don't actually have anything particularly useful to do this weekend, except review a little bit of French and practice some conversation with my grandmother so that I'm ready for the oral interview on Wednesday.  So I'm not just imagining that I can go out and buy myself a whole new outfit, but I'm also imagining I'd have some place to wear it (though it would be perfect for a friend's wedding next weekend...).  I just finished A Vintage Affair, a fun and purely indulgent quick read, and it's left me wanting a pretty vintage dress rather badly.  If I could get this pretty blue one (that has already sold, alas), it'd be quite perfect for anything during the summer and cute with leggings or tights and my brown boots in the winter.  

Have a lovely weekend, everyone, and don't forget to give your dad a great big hug (real or imagined) on Sunday!  

You can see other bloggers' outfits or link your own for AV's Friday's Fancies series here.  My set this week turned out surprisingly affordable, except for that handbag and those shoes...and the dress is a little out of reach, too.  Okay, so the jewelry for my set turned out pretty affordable.  That's better.
