Friday's Fancies- Outfit Inspiration!

Another Friday!
Is it possible we're already more than halfway through the first month of 2012?
I know I say this a lot- but time is going in fast forward!! That's a fact now.

I mentioned in one of my last posts that the person's schedule has been crazy. Yup, that hasn't gotten any better what with the President stopping by our parts yesterday! That actually caused us to lose our one day off together for a while but I'm still hopeful that February will hold some quality time in there somewhere- what with it being Valentine's Day AND my birthday. :)
Fingers crossed! I miss that guy!
But! I am very grateful for our late night Netflix dates and morning coffee breaks. And until we have time for a real date again, I'll keep loving those things!

And since it's Friday, that means I'm linking up with {av} from {long distance loving} again for Friday's Fancies! This link up always inspires me to look fierce as often as possible so I loved the theme for this week. Anyone participating this week was urged to build an outfit based on some inspiration from pinterest or the blogosphere. I've really been meaning to implement all the awesomeness I find on pinterest into my every day life. This gave me a chance to work out that "outfit building" muscle... does that make any sense? I just mean this was really good practice! 

So let's start with my inspiring pin!

Now, when I first started putting my version together, I was literally just copying it piece for piece. Same colors and everything. I stopped and thought "Ummmmm! You are SO missing the point of this!" I took a step back, and decided to switch it up with some of my favorite things-
Chiefly, the color coral and poofy sleeves.
Perhaps my version is a little plain jane but I'm having a love affair with clean lines and color pops.

I need to keep collecting outfits I want to recreate and keep those in mind when I go shopping...

Now- go join in this link up so I can be inspired by your fashion savviness! Hoping everyone survived the week! If your weekend plans include Disney, wave to me!

I love all those looks, so simple, yet so divine!

In response to your comment on my blog the other day, I am actually in south Florida, but my family and friends live in otown, so if you planed a central fl meetup, I'd love to try and come, so keep me in the loop.. Likewise if you are ever in sofla and want to grab a coffee, I'd love to meet some of my blog friends :)

Sometimes it can be really hard to find the time with the special people in our lives. You have a fantastic outlook on how to handle that! Have a great weekend.

Stephanie said...

Oh my word, I love this outfit. What great pieces!

It's soooo tempting to see a picture and just want to do it piece for piece, and it takes everything within me to remind myself to get the main idea and use what I have to make it my own. I think the outfit you created is great!
