Friday's Fancies: Drinks with Friends

It's been a while (too long really!) since I've linked up with {av} for Friday's Fancies and as seeing as we have some exciting Friday night plans ahead of us, I thought I'd fix that, pronto!

Ashlee is finally back in the Lou for a week after a much-too-long absence and to celebrate, we are going to grab drinks at our usual Ferguson haunt (at least when we are with Ashlee and JY) Ferguson Brewery Company.  With them will be Ashlee's good friend Danielle and her fiance Kyle (in town to celebrate Ashlee's graduation from her Master's program--woop woop!) as well as friends Nick and Brian.  If money were no object, this is what I'd be wearing tonight while we laugh and talk the night away!

When I designed this set, I began as I often do, with the blouse.  I was immediately attracted to the bright jade color and its wrap shape.  Soon after I selected some leather leggings to help the jade really pop!  Then I found some Dries Van Noen shoes that while floral print, reminded me of a large snake skin print which I thought would go great with the leather pants and snakeskin handbag by Michael Kors that I had picked out.  Finally I rounded the whole outfit out with some feathery earrings and a chunky and colorful cocktail ring.

What do you think?  Did I mix too many different animal species in the creation of my outfit?  

What are your plans tonight?!  Whatever they are, I hope you have a wonderful night and a fabulous weekend!


  1. That blouse is gorgeous! Oh, if only... :)

  2. Love this, especially the earrings, and the shoes, and the blouse...or maybe just all of it!

  6. If money were no object I'd have all the clothes and shoes and jewelry in the world...:)

  7. Ohhh, love that emerald green! Hot! And those heels?! To die for :) Like this Friday's Fancy feature!

  8. I love that color!! That's so pretty!

  9. Love it. Very much! I wish I could wear stuff like that. I'm a few years beyond styles like that though. ( listen to me acting like I'm 90 years old!) I'll re-phrase that and say ,I could do everything but the leggings. lol

  10. Ugh, I chanted "please be cheap" as I scrolled down to see how much that top costs. It is perfection!

  11. Gorgeous outfit! I am definitely loving feather earrings. Looks like a peacock inspired outfit which I just adore!


  12. GORGEOUS outfit... I love that!

  13. I've absolutely missed you for Friday's Fancies--and I seriously can't get enough of what you created for your return outfit! I adore that teal hue and those earrings are incredible :) hope you'll join in again this week! much love! xoxo {av}
