polyvore by loveeashlyn 

Friday is FINALLY here & this week seemed to drag on & on & on. & it is probably because my last class of my graduate career will be over at 12pm & whenever there is something to look forward to it seems to take forever to get there! BUT YAY! Such a relief! :]  But I love spring & Friday Fancies has made its rounds yet again & I am so stoked about this weeks pretty pastel theme! I am have yet another huge love affair with pastel ANYTHING. Seriously -- look how pretty the color combos of peach, mint, purple & yellow go together! I think it is a snazzy little outfit if I say so myself! :] If you need some more Spring Fever inspiration head over to {AV's} blog to check out all the other amazing outfits.

get your green on girrrrl.

If you are like me you gotta wear something green on St. Patrick's Day & you might as well make it a sassy one! & not jusssss because you don't want to get pinched!  I wish I had this outfit sitting in my closet so that I could wear it out -- it is a little sassy + a little classy & that is exactly what I like. & FYI: those wedges have my heart, so if you see them anywhere I really need my heart back!! haha This weekend I will def be partaking in some St. Patrick's Day activities  so a green beer is def in order & I am sure I will have many!  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend & enjoy those green alcoholic beverages if you have any. oh & be safe! xx.

linking up with { long distance loving } for Friday Fancies.

and the Oscar goes too ...

Please pinch me. yes, pinch me. Is it really Friday already? Geez. I remember at one point during this week I felt like it was taking forever & then bam, Friday is here! Where does the time go? beats me. I ain't complaining.

Well if you aren't all in the know, not that I am either. But this weekend is the Oscars! I haven't always been a fan of watching these high-profile kind of events on TV, usually I just hear about them the next day on Twitter or on the news. But when I do watch them my favorite part is seeing what everyone is wearing! I mean these stars go W A Y over the top & well I guess I would to if I could. & I can! because I live vicariously through my Friday Fancies! YAY! 

I really had no idea where to start looking for a dress. I mean I don't usually wear $4,000 dresses or $2000 shoes, do you? Then I stumbled across this beyond G O R G E O U S marigold silk-taffeta Oscar De La Renta gown, & well you guessed it, i fell in love! The dress creates a dramatic silhouette & would be perfect for me to wear :] hehe. I decided to pair it when these Kiki Mcdonough Citrine and diamond cushion bow earrings, a statement necklace, & some classy black high heels. I am sure that tons of other accessories can be paired with this to-die-for dress -- it really just depends on your style. & well I wanted to be styling & profiling ;]

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.  I am headed off to an Outer Banks Beach House with some classmates, which is about an hour & half from where I live. I am looking forward to a relaxing couple days. xx. ashlyn
