friday fancies[thirty-four]

hello and happy friday. i've gotta say i am way too excited for this weekend and for absolutely no reason in particular. i guess it has just been one of those weeks where i have been craving some time to snuggle in bed and hang out with friends and that is exactly what i have planned for this weekend.

i am looking forward to catching up on some tivo [have i ever mentioned how tivo completes me?!] this evening and maybe even opening up a bottle of wine. then cleanning the apartment tomorrow in preparation for a small gathering we are having to celebrate st. patrick's day. i know this may not be everyone's favorite holiday, but a day that you are encouraged to drink heavily and wear a fun color like green is right up my alley.

i have been thinking long and hard for possible appetizer, main course and dessert options that i could either dye green or that already have that color naturally and it is much harder than i thought! other than green veggies [which the fiance hates] the only thing i've thought of is spinach dip. looks like i will be loading up on green jello and green food coloring at the grocery store.

and here is the little number i've dreamed up for my evening celebrating all things green and irish!

sergio rossi - cork wedge sandals [$450] - these beauties look like the perfect summer wedge to me! i absolutely love how the crisscross ankle strap has a button closure and that the letter continues onto the heel of the wedge. 
parker - racer pleat dress [$253] - this dress is the perfect shade of green, not too bright and not to dull either. of course mint is a shade of green too and with spring in full bloom would definitely be a great color to wear too. now this lady is a huge fan of pleats so this dress has me completely hooked!
charles albert - thick neckwire collar [$105] - i wanted to pair this ensemble with a rather simple yet eye catching necklace since after all i was going for a look i could sport at a house party. this necklace seems like the perfect choice to attract attention without being over done, yet it has the flexibility to be dressed up as well. just perfect!
rachel zoe - isabel shopper [$550] - i love a big bag and this rachel zoe one is just the thing for the rather relaxed and fun look i was going for. even though this outfit is dreamt up to stay home, i love purses way too much not to dream one up as well!!

what do you have planned for st. patrick's day?
and if you have any green food ideas, let me know!

  8. I LOVE that your outfits aren't totally overwhelming with green! I love St. Patrick's Day, but I hate being all green - I guess it's just not my color! The little pop of green is such a great accessory with those shoes and bag - LOVE it!

    Hope your celebrating day was/is fabulous!!
