Friday’s Most Wanted – Boden

Hello friends! My sincere apologies for not having written in so long – writing is one of my favorite activities (especially when I get to write just what I want!). I hope everyone has been doing well and enjoying the fall season. It’s  my absolute favorite time of the year, and in my opinion has the best clothing options. I’m a big boots and flats fan, so this week’s most wanted are two pairs of leopard print shoes from the British clothing company Boden (taken from their Instagram). Leopard print can actually be matched with a number of outfits, especially if the print is kept as your focal point (use it as you would use a statement piece of jewelry).

Friday’s Most Wanted – Black Jacket

I’m usually not a fan of jackets made out of PU, but this black jacket caught my eye. I love “motorcycle” styled jackets where the zipper is located on the side in the front (I have one myself that I can’t wait to break out during the upcoming season.) This jacket also has some interesting detailing on the arm sleeves and shoulders, which adds a “toughness” to it.

Friday’s Most Wanted – C. Wonder Elephant Bag

I don’t think I really need to explain why this C. Wonder Elephant tote and pouch are today’s Friday’s Most Wanted (hint: it has something to do with elephants ;) ). Anyway, they’re both cute and functional – the best of both worlds. If you’ve never been to a C. Wonder or checked out the website online you’re missing out! C. Wonder is full of colorful and fun clothing, accessories, and home goods. I think you’ll find at least one thing you like (or two, or three…).

Friday’s Most Wanted – Christian Dior

It’s Paris Fashion Week, so of course this week’s most wanted are several pieces from one of the couture shows – Christian Dior. The show itself included pieces representative of many different eras and was divided into 8 different groups. The pieces I loved so much were all the coats and jackets, and one specific black and white dress. Check them out below! While the fur coat is absolutely gorgeous, I wouldn’t wear it unless it was imitation fur, but I wanted to include it in this post because I love the way all the separate pieces are paired together. Jackets are paired with pants and tops that make the complete outfit look very cut and clean, but still stylish.

Friday’s Most Wanted

Since this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend, this week’s Friday’s Most Wanted is a very unique red, white, and blue dress (not in the traditional stars and striped way!). Check it out – it’s a Mary Katrantzou design, called Harbour Bridges Printed Dress in Multi. Isn’t it so unique? The entire dress is photo printed with bridges and trees. Talk about some pattern-and-print-play! The price is a little much, but hey a girl can dream. Hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day Weekend. I will be spending mine away in the mountains, and then at a spa. Can’t wait for some relaxing time!

Friday’s Most Wanted

Easy, breezy (beautiful Cover Girl?) dress. I really love this Anthropologie Estrella Maxi Dress. I’m an advocate of maxi dresses and skirts, AND I just read the other day that wearing them boosts women’s confidence, so take that all you maxi dress haters! Anyway, not only do I love that this Anthro dress is a little longer than the usual summer frock, I really like the cut and the bright design on black – this adds for a nice contrast, and allows for some great easy pairing. By that I mean, you can dress this look up or down, wear it with colored accents, or pair it with neutrals. Many options all in one dress.

Friday’s Most Wanted – Home Decor

Today’s most wanted are several home decor products from a lovely site called Brika. Brika features unique jewelry, house and home items, accessories, and a whole bunch of other good stuff from designers and artists. The three pieces in today’s most wanted are from the site’s “Spring Decor” shop.

Coral + Gold Ring Dish, $22

Coral + Gold Ring Dish, $22

I love the color coral, especially for spring, and it looks great with the gold markings on this cute little plate. Also loving the sun-type design.

Mustard Estrellas Fabric Bucket, $22

Mustard Estrellas Fabric Bucket, $22

This fabric bucket is a two-for-one deal. It’s the perfect way to brighten up a space, and serves as storage. I have an obsession with storage buckets and bins (I know, it’s weird).

Lemons Print, $35

Lemons Print, $35

This print reminds me of a white lemon-patterned skirt I bought, which then reminds me of the Amalfi Coast in Italy (please take me back there!). It’s a fun bright print that can make any room more lively.

 

Friday’s Most Wanted – DVF Dress

This week’s most wanted is this Cadence Trim Detail Silk Shirt Dress by DVF. I absolutely LOVE DVF and am determined to own a DVF wrap dress one day. Here’s what I love about the Cadence Trim dress: it’s blue and white (great colors for any season), it’s silk, it has a belt to tie the dress and show off the waist, and the white piping in the middle and bottom of the dress is a very classy touch. It would make a great Easter dress – Happy Easter everyone!
