Friday's Fancies & OOTW

Today's Friday Fancie with {av} was supposed to be a blog swap where you are paired with another blog & you create a look for them! I decided not to participate this week, but I might the next time!

If you chose not to partake in the swap, the theme was either create-your-own, or Winter Wonderland!

Since today feels more like Spring, I decided I'd go ahead and imagine there is snow on the ground, school is cancelled, I have a big cup of hot cocoa and the whole day to myself!

Here's what I'd wear :)

Vest, jewelry, leggings, bag are J. Crew
Shirt/moccasins are L.L. Bean.
Random Mittens
Top Shop scarf

P.S. I love mittens.

This Friday I'm also joining Rachel to share my Outfits of the Week!
This is such a good idea! I don't do OOTD's very often, so this is a good excuse. Let me know what y'all think & maybe I'll try and do them more often! It would help if I had an easier way to take the picture...sorry about my awkward iPhone-ness.

Also, first of all, you will have to excuse the weird splatter/smudge on my mirror. Last summer I was spraying on suntan lotion & didn't realize it hit my doesn't want to come off.

Second of all, you need to know that I have outfit A.D.D. Sometimes I wear two outfits a day because I get bored, cold, hot, itchy, etc. It's a miracle if I wake up, put on one thing and actually stay in it without changing before I leave, let alone stay in it all day.

I also sometimes change for work because I don't want to wear a dress/skirt. Sometimes I do, but these days when I get out of work it's cold! Plus I have touchy-feely Preschoolers to worry about.


Shirt: LOFT
Cardigan: Old Navy
Scarf: Old Navy
Jeans: American Eagle
Boots: Target

Yes, I mix black cardigans and brown boots. I also mix gold & silver. I like it.


Shirt: LOFT
Jeans: American Eagle
Boots: Rack Room
Peacoat: Old Navy

I love that coat. If y'all need a good 3/4 sleeve, mid-length coat look for this one! It might be leaving stores so maybe you'll catch it on clearance :) I got it during a super save event for only $30!


Blouse: Old Navy
Cardigan: J. Crew
Pants: Old Navy
Flats: Old Navy

This was taken at HAE :) Behind me is the reading loft in my Mom's library.


Shirt in both: LOFT
Cardigan in both: Target
Scarf: Gift
Jeggings: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's
Flats: Old Navy
{my favorite} Boots: Rack Room (Steve Madden look-a-likes)

I wouldn't have normally changed that outfit to work, but I promised a kindergartener I would wear my brown boots so we could match :) You don't want to disappoint a five-year-old!


Left (school):
Dress: Old Navy
Jean Jacket: Old Navy
Leggings: Target
Boot Socks: LOFT
Boots: Rack Room

Right (work):
Shirt: LOFT
Jean Jacket: Old Navy
Pants: J. Crew

Of course, that's just what I have on for work now...but I have one more hour so WHO KNOWS what I'll actually go in.

Okay, so clearly I shop a lot at Old Navy. Whoops.

Even if you didn't take pictures all week, take one today and share! :)
Hope this post wasn't too fashion-y!
Happy Friday!


  1. Love the periwinkle cardigan!! And I am actually hoping for a little snow..I don't like this weirdly warm (yet still kind of cold) weather! Have a great weekend!

  2. Cute! I've been really impressed with Old Navy's clothes lately!

  3. I love the color of that coat from Old Navy! Old Navy is one of my favorite places to get stuff from, love all your outfits!

  4. I adore your red peacoat. I'm tempted to go out to Old Navy tomorrow. :) Oh, I love all your other outfits as well!!

    Thanks for the sweet comment about long distance relationships also. I take all the advice I can get, haha. Even after 4 years, I'm still no expert. Glad I have someone here who I can relate to. :)

  5. Wednesdays outfit is my favorite!! I love ruffles! Also, I am ridiculously jealous of your collarless jacket. I fell in love with this when it first came out but didn't like the $70 price tag for an O.N. coat.... Of course I go back and it's on sale for $30 but only available in size XL!!! grrrr. You shoudl do more OOTD!!

  6. Love your outfits!! I do the same thing about changing outfits during the day! I'm a new follower :) I found you through Rachel's OOTD link-up!!

  7. I loved that outfit you created, it's so chic and I'd definitely want to rock that! Great outfits! So cute!

  8. i love that blouse from Wednesday's outfit from Old Navy! and all your OOTDs in general! I've never done one before but you may have just inspired me to start!

  9. There's no way those boots are from Rack Room! They look like Frye!! Do you know what brand they are??

    Thanks for linking up! :)


Thank you for the sweet comments! xo!
