Fashion Friday

Fashion Friday!  By no means am I claiming to be all that fashionable, but clothes are fun and we need a little fun on Friday, right?  Right.  Spring is in the air!  I love Spring fashion.  The bright colors are so HAPPY.

This is a top I bought at the Banana Republic Outlet last Fall, but I pulled it out this week and decided it was perfect for Spring too!  This color of yellow works great for either time of year.  And I'm thinking great for Summer too since it's so lightweight.  I love it when I find versatile clothes that work throughout the year. 

Another look at this blouse in a poorly lit iPhone pic taken at the Cheesecake Factory last October.  Oh my word.  The Cheesecake Factory.  Now I'm hungry.  And it's past 11:00 at night.  I can't eat something this late.  Or can I?  I might have to.  :)

 I have been loving my huge gold hoop earrings lately and have been wearing them a lot.   
They make me want to tell someone their fortune.  

 Plus they seem to work with everything.  

 This dress cinches above the waist and I've mentioned this great tip before:
 (get ready - great tip coming)
** it is always flattering to draw attention to the smallest part of your body.  For most women that is above the waist at the rib cage.  A little something I picked up from watching way too many episodes of TLC's What Not to Wear.  Thank you Stacey and Clinton!  Now I just need to find a miracle outfit that also makes me look tanner.  :)

And since March weather is notorious for being so fickle, here is a Banana Republic sweater I am still wearing on cooler days.  My sister gave me this for Christmas because she knows how much I adore all things simple, grey, and with huge cowl necks.  She nailed it.  It's a favorite!

Casual and warm.  LOVE the open cowl neck with silver buttons.  

And I love Fridays!  The anticipation of a weekend and time to relax is the best feeling.  
Even though the weekend comes and goes and relaxing doesn't seem to happen around here.

That's ok.  I'll take it anyway.


Enjoy yours!

You look gorgeous! I always joke that I could do fashion Friday posts, but I would either be in scrubs or sweats and a t-shirt depending if I'm working or off. :)
