Friday's Fancies #131

Once again, Happy Friday you guys! On my agenda this weekend are trips to Denver, graduation bbq's, family shenanigans, pool time, and warm weather!! :) This week was kind of a let down as far as weather goes. Since yesterday we've had coastal winds blowing through the Front Range (did that stop be from getting some rays at the pool? Heeeeck no! I just pretended I was at the beach) and on Wednesday we had torrential downpours most of the day and so I sat at my kitchen table, sipped my extra hot coffee and watched my plants take a beating through the window. Oh yea and wore this stellar summer outfit. 

It was a lazy day by any means, and besides errands + the gym I felt no need to leave my home that day. So skinny jeans + bunny sweater it was. My 15yo brother thought my sweater was "hip". 

I leave you promptly with this week's fancies - make sure to visit Alison to join in! This week it is all about breaking fashion rules (which I'm pretty sure I broke several with my sweater) and how to break them - fashionably of course. This week we're waving a white flag to the "don't wear white after memorial day" (or is it labor day?) rule of thumb! Personally, I love simple and I love white and one of my favorite summer staples is a simple t-shirt dress. I pair them with anything from heels, to converse and make them work whether I'm running errands or attending a fancy brunch. The cut of a simple t-shirt dress works wonders with my boyish shaped body and I find, is a great alternative to a maxi dress or skirt. 

This week I doubled up my options, because what girl doesn't love variety? 

Winning in White

Merona shift dress / Valentino ankle strap wedge / H&M braided sandals, $23 / Proenza Schouler genuine leather handbag / Bridal clutch / BCBGMAXAZRIA statement necklace / Collar jewelry / J.Crew star sunglasses / Flora Bella brimmed hat / Reiss wide brim hat / Madewell

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you on the sunny side and let me know what your favorite summer staple item is or how you wore white this weekend in the comments below.
