friday's fancies #19.

memorial day weekend has arrived!! in honor of summer time i am busting out my white pants (and i suggest you do the same!) h and i have a few things planned for the long weekend--we're seeing 'the hangover' on saturday (i'll give you a full report on monday) and my family is having a cookout on sunday to celebrate my little brother's return from Afghanistan and my twin cousin's birthday. the weather in chicago is suppose to be sunny- so i want to go for a few long walks.


 for my friday's fancies memorial day outfit i have chosen something a lil bit patriotic (america! yah!):: 
nicola striped-panel strapless BCBG dress (with belt!) $128, sandals $50, clutch $64
poppies via, via, via

  2. Love it- a poppy inspired outfit is fabulous- My computer is messed up in a major way- can't log in to blogger, can't see photos on Polyvore etc. etc. so no outfit as of yet- I'm hoping to sort it out and if so, will definitely get my fancy up by the end of the day:)
