Friday's Fancies

12/07/2012

Plaid is so classic, but wearing it head-to-toe is a bold choice (not that it can't be done). I love the idea of pairing a paid scarf with a classic outfit comprised of items we all have in our closets. OK, maybe we all don't own leopard booties, but we should. Also, I've picked out a few more plaid items below (that clutch is $17!). 
Dress - Shirt - Scarf - Clutch - Shoes

 And because it's Friday, and poor Alexa is still sick, here is some link love:
We're have belated birthday drinks for Ian on Saturday, and I might need to make one of these festive cocktails for the occasion!

We love making sweet potato fries, but this recipe for mashed sweet potatoes with rosemary looks delicious.

Do you have the 5 essential pairs of jeans?

We're getting hitched in September, but this winter wedding is dreamy.

In case you missed it, this week we continued our gift guide series with gifts for guys and gifts for little ones.
