[guest post]: friday's fancies by longdistancelovin

i am so happy to have {av} over from longdistanceloving to do a guest post. and since it is friday... it is the perfect day to have her do a friday's fancies.

Happy Friday! My name is {av} and I'm thrilled to be guest-posting for Melissa while she's enjoying a few days away in the Keys. When she's the one posting, I always love seeing the sweet photos of her little Olivia :) Since I'm stepping in today, I can't promise any pictures of precious babies...but I can promise a little bit of glam with my Friday's Fancies post! Friday's Fancies was a link-up I created so I could dream big and forget about the pricetags. Melissa has been a faithful poster, so I was happy to dream up an outfit for a lovely date night spent out in the ocean breeze on the Keys:

1) Here's a top that packs quite a punch! This Haute Hippie Short Sleeve Cowl Blouse popped out at me for its gorgeous coral hue but also it's easy, breezy vibe. I think it would be perfect for a walk on the beach after dinner :)
2) When you're on vacation, you don't need to cart around the kitchen sink, so everything you need could fit in this lovely little Tory Burch McLane Mini Messenger Bag. I loved the chain and the sandy swoon!
3) I'd never heard of Prehnite, but you better believe I am now a huge fan. This Raw Jewelry by JLRicci Oval Yellow Prehnite Cocktail Ring would provide a beautiful contrast against the coral. I'd love to rock this on any day, not just vacation.
4) With the return of the flare, I couldn't help but choose these Rag & Bone White Bell Jeans. I like them because they're flared, but not too flared. They'd work splendidly with those wedges as well!
5) I am a sucker for classic tortoise shell sunglasses and these Cutler and Gross Round-Frame Acetate Sunglasses fit the bill. I love that they're a little bolder in the frame than your average Wayfarers, which give them an extra ounce of chic.
6) Hello bombshell! These Paloma Barcelo America Suede Espadrille Wedges would certainly help turn heads :) I couldn't help but adore the soft leather and the dainty straps.

Truth be told, you'd find me in an outfit like this at home or on vacation!
So tell me: what's your normal vacation date night attire?

Thanks again for having me, Melissa! I hope you're enjoying the beautiful sights--and that you might even have a piece of key lime pie for me :) Be sure to stop by {long distance loving} and say hello. Don't forget to check out all the other Friday's Fancies and enter a fun friendship bracelet giveaway while you're there! Enjoy your weekend! xoxo {av}

i'll be back on monday!!
