Fancy Things Friday 

June 3, 2016

This Fancy Things Friday contains a fresh batch of swoon-inducing goods and wares. Check them out here:

1. I spy with my little eye something dope as all get-out. That’d be this super-cool D’izak Eyes Large Canvas Pouch, a masterful illustrated piece by artist Izak Zenou. In love with his style as much as I am? You’re in luck because there are plenty other items with Zenou’s stamp here. (shop.people.com)

2. It’s Friday, folks! That means it’s the start of the weekend, so you better carpe the heck outta this diem. You can also commemorate this state of mind any day of the week with this dainty Carpe Diem Bar Bracelet from My Kitsch. Live life to the fullest while rocking this piece in 14k gold and/or sterling silver plated brass. (mykitsch.com)

3. In the words of the late, great Michael Jackson, “It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white.” Thankfully you can have the best of both worlds with this Color Block Cut-Out Midi Sheath Dress from Express. I’m especially here for the front cutouts and a front-slitted reverse hi-lo hem. Mmm hmm! (express.com)

4. You should be on a boat, sipping a tropical bevy while wearing this quaint Mango Ruffled Jumpsuit. I’ll have it no other way. I can’t get enough of the nautical stripes, the ruffled bodice and the V-neck drawstring. Anchors aweigh, y’all! (mango.com)

5. This darling Eyelet and Mesh Shirtdress has got me craving some fun in the sun. The slight cinch waist shows off your girlish figure and the eyelets are eye-catching. All in all a must-have spring-to-summertime dress! (gap.com)

1. Cue up “America the Beautiful” and throw on your best red sundress, ’cause these nautical Striped Slip-On Shoes will have you in a Fourth of July state of mind. But they’ll look just as lovely with some high-waisted shorts or a denim skirt. (cosstores.com)

2. Sometimes less is more. Raise the bar with these dainty Small Bar Studs, which can be worn every day. (stories.com)

3. If these tropical-themed Pari Print High Waisted Shorts don’t get you jazzed about summer, I don’t know what will. These shorts were made for lounging cabana-side with a piña colada in hand. (whistles.com)

4. Just as the picture suggests, this Clayton Dress by Babaton is easy and breezy! Teal is such a flattering color, and I’m not ashamed to admit that my obsession with it just won’t go away. This little number is simple enough to wear with some flats around the office, but has just enough pizzaz to dress up with some strappy heels and a textured clutch. (aritzia.com)

5. This midi Patterned Skirt by H&M brings a ton of color and flair that you don’t need to add much else to your outfit. A plain white or black tee with some sandals will do the trick. (hm.com)

1. Stop the presses! These Paules heels from Aldo make quite the statement with its black-and-white polka dots and pale teal strap. The daring appeal of these strappy sandals would make me want to live dangerously and pair it with something unexpected, like a red or orange sundress. (aldoshoes.com)

2. Meet the talented Janessa Leoné. This Henningsen wool and lambskin hat is an effortless, classic beauty. It’s giving me quintessential film noir dame in the best sense possible. (janessaleone.com)

3. Miss Selfridge fuses naughty (think nautical) and nice with this Petites Stripe Pinny Dress. I predict sunshine, sand and beach umbrellas in this dress’ future. (missselfridge.com)

4. X marks to spot in this extra edgy X-It Through the Jumpsuit. You can’t see it from this image, but this exquisite number features a racer back with cut-outs. (gojane.com)

5. Let’s face it. I’m Too Cool For You and this tee proves it. Of course, you gotta bring it when you make such a brazen statement. You’ll prove them right, whether you go the tomboy route with some high-top Chuck Taylors and camouflage-print shorts or the girly route with a pair of skinny jeans, a loud lip color and bright pump.

“She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.” Proverbs 31:14

This past Saturday, my guy and I made the trek to Corona to see my friends from my previous job for a potluck and game night. I guess I was channeling my desire for a cool ocean breeze with this nautical-inspired outfit, as the temps that day were nearly 100 degrees. Thank God for air conditioning at Mel’s house and a lovely time spent with lovely people.
