Friday's Fancies

8/24/2012


When I started brainstorming looks for today's Fancies I couldn't get the image of a 1960's red Ford Thunderbird convertible out of my head. I'm not sure it warrants "road trip" material...maybe more of a day cruise along the coast...but who's getting all grumpy about details anyway? In any regard, do listen to Mr. Twain, he's got it right.

What are you lovelies up to this weekend? Kirby is in Miami (cue cries of jealousy)! Me? I got nothing. And I'm totally cool with that.


Big time giveaway on DesignLoveFest. Ah-mazing!

Cute wallpaper!

Accidental plum compote...yum!

I've been doing some writing and designing for Lulu & Georgia..it's launching in a couple of months, so stay tuned!

August has been an insane month, so I treated myself to this sweet MadeByGirl print. Love.

Your 60's inspired chic road trip outfit is the perfect complement to such a vintage car!! Love the quote by Mr Twain. :)

I'll be packing this weekend. My husband & I leave for our San Fran vacay in a week and a half. Holla!! Can't wait.

Enjoy some R&R this weekend!

This is great! 1. When I was 10 I was obsessed with having a 1960's red T-Bird and collected change in a coffee can to "save for it" haha. 2. Those shorts!!!!!

I couldn't agree more! It's mr. twains words that ring in my head each and every time I plan some sort of trip I don't think I can afford.
Happy weekend lovely!
