This is my first Friday Fancies! I've been following {av}'s blog for so long now and look forward to the Friday Fancies every week from everyone. This week, I've finally decided to do my own and I'm pretty proud of it. I absolutely LOVE this dress. I don't actually have a maxi, but if I could have this one I know I'd wear it all the time. And there's also nothing more effortlessly pretty than bangles over a big watch. If I had a million bucks (and a fun place to go this weekend!) I'd definitely wear this. What's your take on a maxi? Do you love it? 

Have wonderful weekends everyone! I'm busily avoiding getting ready for school to start and trying to get as much in as possible before I go. My dad and I are going to have another lovely night at Ravinia to see Yo-Yo Ma and my girlfriends and I are going to have a fun night out. And of course there's packing. And mandatory reading. But I'm focusing on the good parts on the weekend! Anyone doing anything exciting? Keep enjoying this summer heat!


  1. I'm not so sure how I feel about maxi dresses. So many of them that I see out there are hugely unfitted and just look like they would be unflattering to anyone who wore them. That doesn't seem to be the case with this one, so I appreciate that. This entire outfit (especially the sandals) scream "SUSAN!" at me, and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

    Best of luck with the packing! :^)

  2. Love it! Gold accessories are my go to right now. And that red, such an amazing color!

  3. Welcome to Friday's Fancies!!!! I almost picked that same dress- great minds think alike!
