Pick me up at 8

I’m super excited to be participating in a contest with French Connection and Gilt City this week! Participants were asked to come up with a Pinterest board showcasing a look made up of their favorite items from FCUK’s new line, while sticking to a $1000 budget. Everyone is so big on dresses for Valentine’s Day, but I thought it might be fun to pair a sweet pink skirt with a comfier top, and add some crystal jewelry made with Swarvoski elements to keep it dressy. I would LOVE for you to head on over to the contest and vote for my outfit. If your name is selected, you could win this entire look!

French Connection Valentine's Day

[ Alex Knitted Jumper, $128 ]
[ Loving Crochet Pencil Skirt, $168 ]
[ Colville Cross Body Bag, $238 ]
[ Crystal Stretch Bracelet, $130 ]
[ Crystal Stud Earrings, $40 ]

Thank you so much for your support!! xx

Ooh La La

While miss {av} is on a little overseas voyage, we’re doing a Eurotrip Friday’s Fancies in her honor. I’ve still got Parisian details on my mind, and while this look may a bit too over-the-top touristy for France itself, I think it would work just fine from afar.

Sunhats and Sunnies

Aleesa Dress, Lilly Pulitzer [print]
Derby Hat, Marley Lilly
Bracelet, Tiffany & Co.
Sunglasses, H&M
Patent flats, Lacoste [similar]

Summer is practically here and I fully plan on embracing every second of sunshine I can get over the next few months! I’ve been going out of my way just so I can walk along the Boston Harbor and soak up as much sunlight + summer cheer as I can. Long New England winters can do that to ya.

How are you soaking up summer this year?

Royal Anniversary

Someeebody has a very special first anniversary coming up! And it is far from being yours truly.

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I woke up at the ungodly hour of 4 am to watch Kate and Wills tie the knot [tea and scones in hand, mind you]. Since then, Kate Middleton has become my ultimate style icon [see here; here; here; here], so it seemed only appropriate that for today’s Date Night Friday’s Fancies I keep the duchess in mind.

I don’t know what Miss Catherine will be wearing for her anniversary soiree, but I can imagine it would be classic and proper, but with flirty details like lace and peplum, and romantic touches of pale pink…

Lace Peplum Dress by Rare, Topshop, $65
Linen-blend Cropped Jacket, Carven, $340
Return to Tiffany Mini Heart Tag Earrings, Tiffany & Co. $475 
Hand in Hand Idiom Bangle, Kate Spade, $58
Pointed Patent Leather Court Shoe, Zara, $80

What do you think she’ll be donning?

I’m so pinterested…

I may or may not be a little obsessed with Pinterest. I’m constantly pinning images from all of your adorable blogs, and spending substantial amounts of time going though all of the boards I follow as well. So I love {av}‘s Friday’s Fancies theme today: outfit inspiration. Many of my own OOTDs have in fact come from pin inspiration already! (see here, here, and here).

Here’s one of my favorite pins sitting on my fashion board, and my take on the antiqued pink look:
