Friday's Fancies

3/23/2012

Happy Friday everyone! Aren't you excited that the weekend is finally here? I'm heading to the Shine Project tomorrow morning (definitely check it out if you haven't already) and then we're going to bring dinner to our friends Steve and Kat and their two sweet little girls. Sunday we are laying low and I'm seriously considering a nap!

Today's Friday Fancies is all about NCAA basketball, which is hilarious because I am so completely out of touch with the whole March Madness craziness. When we actually worked in an office we would each draw up our own brackets and it was exciting to see how far my teams would go. This time I had to look up what teams were even competing! So sad. I don't have a particular one that I'm rooting for, but I'm going with mom's alma mater, the Wisconsin Badgers. Their team colors are cardinal and white. I sort of adapted it to cream + red + gold. How about those Marc Jacob gold heels?

Hope you all have an absolutely lovely weekend!

I don't follow March Madness either really, but my husband made me fill out a bracket. It's doing pretty well (aka better than his), and so now I'm taking a sudden interest! I hope you have a lovely weekend. :)

I was so taken aback when I saw this post I didn't even know what to do wit myself! I honestly could care less about sports of most any kind, but I have a soft spot in my heart for Bucky cause I'm a Wisconsin girl myself. Sometimes I even wear a Bucky t-shirt around Madrid, and get made fun of to no end.

So cute - I am so jealous that you came up with something as fun as this! UMD wasn't even close to the action this year, so I'm jealous that you got to make an outfit this adorable!

Hope your weekend was fabulous!
