friday fancies [twenty-three]

i cannot believe it is friday today. where did this week go? i am not complaining at all, but wow, i feel like it seriously flew by. this week i got to purchase my cap and gown for graduation. it was so very exciting. it makes it all so real. sometimes i still feel like december will come and there will be some technical hold up that will stop me from graduating. but hey, i have my cap and gown and i passed out my five tickets to the family!

so i finally jumped on the bandwagon and got on groupon this week. this lovely, little italian place by my mom's house which the bf and i have gone to often had a great deal at half-price. so i went ahead and bought it and we are going tonight with another couple. they have this fabulous pumpkin ravioli and with this little cold front we are experiencing it will definitely feel like fall tonight!

today for my friday fancies {av} is doing a PINK theme in honor of breast cancer month. my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, so i of course will be joining in. i was not always a pink kind of girl, so i wanted to design an outfit for all those ladies out there that do not like wearing the color. there are just so many shades of pink out there...so go ahead and have some fun with it!

alice + olivia - petunia bell sleeve dress [$330] - i have always been a fan of all things flowy. this dress drapes the body very nicely. the cropped sleeves allow for some arm candy too. i like the high neck line, and even though i didn't style this outfit with a long necklace, it would definitely look very nice. 
diane von furstenberg - harri snake patch clutch [$350] - this bag is just fabulous! i love the bright pink snake skin detailing as well as the different striped combination.
noir jewelry - fan ring [$165] - the rose gold trend is definitely still in. and as it is slightly pink, wear it with pride this month. i like to wear oversized rings, they pack such a punch.
gorjana - pharaoh earrings [$53] - these earrings are perfect to compliment the outfit while not overdoing it. i love the textured look they have too.
alice + olivia - miranda suede platform pumps [$295] - i fell in love with these pumps right away as soon as i saw the adorable bows. the color is perfect for the upcoming fall season and matches nicely with the wooden heel. 

what are your weekend plans?
