{guest post} - long distance loving.

happy friday chickadees-- today my blog bestie is guest posting! the lovely miss {av} is the woman behind friday's francies and she has been dreaming up amazing outfits for months. be sure to hop over to {long distance loving} - you'll love her style, advice, travel photos, and stories.. not to mention she is one of the sweetest people on the east coast :)

Happy Friday! My name is {av} and I'm behind {long distance loving}. I have long been an admirer of jcd's impeccable style, so to be asked to guest post on cornflake dreams is quite an honor!

She has been a faithful Friday's Fancies contributor, so today, I'm carrying on the tradition with this sightseeing chic outfit, which would work perfectly on the streets of Portland...

{all images are screenshots from the links provided below}

1) Anthropologie always tempts me with its wares, but this Blurred Chevron Scarf was more than tempting. Knowing jcd's love of chevron, I thought this scarf was the perfect accessory for a day of sightseeing!
2) Who can argue with J.Crew? The Jean Shop Chambray Shirt is a comfortable option for roaming the streets of Portland.

3) When I spotted this Foley + Corinna Mid City Tote, it tugged at my heartstrings. I love the versatility of this bag--and it would certainly fit a camera {like the one in #5!} and touristy maps {and maybe even the kitchen sink!}

4) I adored the slight metallic touch of this Madewell Porchlight Skirt. Tucking that chambray stunner into this skirt would make for an adorable twist on a normal shirt+skirt combo.

5) My love of photography should explain why this Lomography Diana+ Aviator Camera makes my Friday's Fancies. Wouldn't you feel superchic with it around your neck too?!

6) A little pop of color? Yes please. These Tory Burch Eddie Ballet Flats would provide just that--and put a spring in my step!

7) I own the traditional Wayfarers, but there's something about these Ray-Ban High Street Wayfarer Sunglasses which make them infinitely cooler. Enough said.

Do you try to channel the city you're visiting when packing for a trip?

Endless thanks to my dear friend, jcd, for sharing her spotlight with little ol' me!

Enjoy your weekend! xoxo {av}
