Friday's Fancies and a Quick Trip

On Sunday morning, my family, husband, and I are taking off for a quick trip to Wheaton, Illinois for a wedding.  Although I plan to wear a dress that won't get too wrinkled in transit (thank goodness for knits!), I loved this dress, spotted on this week's living in post on design*sponge.  I love that it captures the lightness of summer, and the pink and ivory is perfectly feminine and even a bit bridal in connotation.  The delicate bracelet and feather hairpiece contrast nicely with the bold sequined bag, while the shoes are structured enough to not be overwhelmed by the dress.  I'd wrap the scarf around my shoulders when the sun goes down or the air conditioning is a little much--I'm one of those people that shivers indoors in the summer, even when it's over a hundred degrees outside.

I think I was feeling quite girly when I made this board.  It's often easy to tell my mood from what I'm wearing or thinking of wearing.

I'll be offline on Monday, but back on Tuesday. Have a lovely weekend!  If you read the title of today's post, you know it's a Friday's Fancies day here, so go take a look at all the end-of-summer prettiness and, if you'd like, like my post.
