Friday is here, thank you for finally making your grand entrance upon my week, Friday!!
Weekend plans, what are yours ladies? I need some relaxation, after a busy but awesome weekend last weekend, I need just a bit of down time. Seeing some of my friends this weekend is definitely on the agenda, making Sean's Valentine's Day present. We aren't huge Valentine's Day people but we certainly celebrate and I won't reveal what he is getting until after Valentine's Day.

Until only a few years ago, I didn't own a single red item in my closet, now I love the color although I don't think I own a single pink item. I wasn't much of a pink girl growing up, but since Valentine's Day can either be red or pink, I selected red items for my Friday's Fancies outfit this week, and I do love a good polka dot too!
v-day outfit 
I hope you like the outfit.

Onto some real outfits I wore this week. I'm not sure if I ever mentioned this before but the outfits I do post is what I wear to work each day. On the weekends I'm not too creative with my outfits and when I get home from work, I usually put on leggings and my husband's sweatshirt (am I lazy?)


This first outfit I wore I had to attend a funeral and was gone from work all day, so this is what I selected. Anyone recognize the beautiful THEIT bag?? Um..hello, gorgeous! Thank you again Nicole for the awesome giveaway at last week's blogger meet-up. Your bag design is absolutely beautiful.

The following day I wore this fun orange dress from Old Navy and when I got home I ripped the black tights I was wearing, just ran up against a cinder block, and into the trash those tights went!

Here is another outfit I wore this weekend and again the grey pencil skirt, which my Sean bought for me as a Christmas gift, great taste he has doesn't he?
I love the asymmetrical top, a beautiful find at Anthropologie. I also love those Target wedges, a great find too.

Love seeing the outfit shots. I try to do that occasionally but hate my camera and generally file the pictures in the 'Maybe if I don't have anything to post that day file'. Most of them are still sitting there. :) Have a fun relaxing weekend! We are going to see Memphis the musical tonight so very excited to get the workday over.

I tried to do a post update like this of work clothes but I just felt such an idiot posing that I gave up! You look lovely in every photo but the last one is my favourite due to the colour combo and the fact it could be easily imitated with my own stuff. Rx
