Hi! I'm Meghan from little girl in the big world; I'm so excited to swap Friday's Fancies with Ashlyn today. I've followed her blog for a long time and love her outfit posts, honesty, and inspired eye for design. 

For this Friday's Fancies with {av}, I channeled a laid back vibe that also had elements that could make it appropriate for brunch or dinner with friends.
The anthropologie top is loose and flowy, but the Alexander McQueen scarf gives it enough attitude to make a statement. I paired it with some structured but skinny JCrew pants and orange Eddie flats from Tory Burch. I love the patent leather pop of color that these provide for the outfit. I decided to go with some layering bracelets from Stella & Dot as well as a set of teensy stackable sterling silver rings from etsy. The earrings are also anthropologie and I think complete the look; and as a reminder to be happy with ourselves each day, I love that they have quotes about contentment by philosopher Lao Tzu engraved into them.

I hope you love the outfit. I think it represents my style and thoughts well. Come by and check out my blog {and ashlyn's outfit} if you get a chance and let me know what you think of my outfit. If I had these pieces I would love to wear this exact look this weekend. I think we're headed out to a local farmer's market.

Thanks again Ashlyn!
