Guest Post :: Friday’s Fancies

Hello friends! It’s {av} from {long distance loving}, filling in while Carly soaks up the sun in Mexico! Each week, I host a link-up called Friday’s Fancies. The theme for this week? Spring break! I thought it was only appropriate to pull together a bright and happy ensemble that would be perfect for Carly’s beachside getaway. 
1) With the right amount of ruffles and the exquisite coral color, this Susana Monaco Elsa Laser Cut Maxi Dress had me at hello! Susana Monaco dresses rarely wrinkle, so I knew it would be a fuss-free dress for a sunny destination.
2) This Kate Spade Baublebox Bib Necklace would work beautifully with all colors of the rainbow, making it an easy choice for this outfit. A bright white, paired a vibrant coral, rocks every time.
3) It wouldn’t be spring break without a dose of fun nail polish. I can’t stop eyeing this Essie Turquoise and Caicos–and I knew it would be a lovely complement to the coral and white.
4) Lauren Merkin crafted the ideal bag for any vacation in this Louise Natural Raffia Clutch. It would also transition well to a summer night out on the town
5) It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I included another gorgeous piece from Kate Spade. These Know The Ropes Stud Earrings work well for every day, but they are even more appropriate for the beach 🙂
6) I love my Navajos, but these Santa Fe Flats from Jack Rogers may be my new favorites. The platinum just pops against the coral maxi! 
Need some inspiration for your spring break suitcase? Hop over to see more Friday’s Fancies this week! You can even make your own–just dream up an outfit and join in the fun 🙂 {Oh, and click here to join the mailing list for future themes!} 
Many thanks to my favorite Hoya for having me today!
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!
xoxo {av}

I'm with everybody else, I love that Essie shade! And the earrings too, very classy. I wish I was in Mexico right now, not here in the chilly midwest!
