Cozy for Fall Friday's Fancies

I love playing along with {av} for Friday's Fancies. It fits perfectly with my newfound understanding that I don't have to spend big money to get cute clothes, because it lets me shop for expensive items in my head, which I can then look for less expensive versions of when I'm actually shopping. 

I also really love this weeks theme, the cozy side of fall, because, while Florida isn't experiencing fall just yet, it reminds me of how perfect fall clothes are for lounging around and cuddling under a blanket. I would probably be a bit self conscious about lounging in clothes that cost this much, but it helps you understand my absolute and undying love for lounging around in leggings. I will sometimes even leave the house in leggings and a long top to grab yogurt or pick up takeout. Don't worry, I'm fully aware that leggings aren't pants...but that doesn't really stop me.


I absolutely love silk split front blouses for fall, and I will get my hot little hands on one in the next few weeks; this Vince one ($235) is perfect in length, quality, and color. These David Lerner leggings ($77) are lightweight and seem to have no seams. To accessorize a simple outfit I chose colors and patterns: an Etro cashmere and silk scarf ($430), JCrew Billy Buckle Boots ($325), a Chan Luu wrap bracelet ($245), and the Ray Bans ($120) that I really want and featured last week.


And while I would love to lounge around in my fall gear this weekend and watch college football, I'm actually more excited for my plans to have a beach weekend in Anna Maria Island with a girlfriend! We're going to enjoy some wine and cheese, spend a little time on the beach, head to the outlets, and just relax! I'm sure there will be some football mixed in...I mean Alabama's got a big game this weekend! But that's not the focus, and that's okay with me!

What are your plans for the weekend? What will you be wearing? Link up with {av} to play along with your dream fall outfit!

We really must be on the same wavelength with great boots! I adore your outfit--and am really pretty jealous it's not fall in Florida yet! I love fall, but I dread winter...so I could make the most of 'early' fall as much as possible ;) love this whole Friday's Fancies! so happy to have you dreaming along with me! have a great weekend! xoxo {av}

Love the boots! And the scarf...and one day I will own a Chan Luu bracelet when I decide I need a little present to myself. I am a crazed layered bracelet fan, but haven't been able to justify spending THAT much on a Chan Luu. But ohhhhh do I want one.

I have those Wayfarers....so classic and cool! I love them.
