Friday's Fancies: A Guest Post

Hi, I'm Erin and I blog at Just a Few of My Favorite Things ( I'm so excited to be swapping blogs with Ashley for Friday's Fancies! A little about me: I live in Virginia, I'm an elementary school teacher and I LOVE clothes, fashion and shopping! So it's not a real surprise that Friday's Fancies is one of my favorite link-ups!Ashley and I decided to showcase two types of outfits for this swap: a winter outfit and a spring outfit!

I recently discovered Polyvore ( and I'm totally hooked. I love using it to create cute outfits and come up with new ideas! My winter outfit's inspiration came from basically being cold all day today (it doesn't get super cold in Virginia, but I'm not a big fan of winter and think anything below 50 degrees is freezing!) I love the cozy, over-sized sweater and gray is so much easier to match than other colors! I like the pop of pink to brighten up the outfit. Skinny jeans always look cute especially with a great pair of boots like these. I love the sparkly earrings and because it's winter and cold, why not throw on an adorable snow cap to keep warm!

Now onto spring-- my favorite season of all! I love pulling out my cute spring dresses and flip flops. I always get so excited when the weather gets warmer, so my inspiration for this outfit is the promise of spring and 75 degree days that will be here in a few months!

Dress: Bank Fashion
Sandals: Tory Burch
Nail Polish: Essie
Sunglasses: Chanel via
Cardigan: Barney's 

I'm totally loving this style of dress--the color is so pretty (especially if you are a redhead like me)! The belt around the middle is such a cute touch. Nothing says spring more than fun sandals and freshly painted nails! I love pink nail polish and this color is so refreshing and bright! I'm always on the lookout for new sunglasses -- I have an unfortunate habit of breaking mine all the time.. And I added a cropped cardigan just in case a cool spring breeze might come along! 

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my winter and spring fashion ideas!A big thank you to Ashley for letting me post on her fabulous blog and I hope you'll come visit mine sometime! :)
