Friday Fancies: Black, White and Scalloped All Over!

Happy Friday everyone! Can't believe we've finally made it here, but it's been a good week so far! Summer camp has started at work, so I've got a new bunch of kiddos and they are really super sweet. I finished up my stay with my two favorite pups and now it's the weekend! I can't wait to get a hair cut, watch the Blackhawks hopefully take another win, and enjoy Father's Day and the U.S. Open with the best dad I know.

But now it's fancies time! With this house sitting stay, I decided to take my hard-earned earnings and treat myself a tad. I already had an Anthro gift card leftover from Christmas, and when I saw this skirt in the store, I couldn't say no. You really have to see it to appreciate how fantastic it is: it's scalloped, it's striped, it's heavy-ish, and it flares out. It's truly a timeless piece and when I saw how fast it was going, I decided it was worth spending the rest of that gift card! What I love about it is how many different ways it can be styled, and for different seasons too. That's when you truly know you're getting the most bang for your buck: when a piece can take you from season to season, being used multiple different ways. I love the way that it's styled here on the model, but here's how I'd style it for a casual weekend dinner with friends.

I usually never buy an item from Anthropologie that's not on sale first, but couldn't pass this up. And that blouse? Target! Right? It's too perfect and now I may have to run over to Tar-get and pick one up!

Have wonderful weekends everyone!
