friday's fancies #24: gators' sweet sixteen.


for this week's friday's fancies, a link-up hosted by {av} on {long distance loving}, we set out to create a look to that puts our favorite sweet sixteen teams' colors on display.

since florida made it to this round of march madness this year - and they happen to be justin's very favorite team, ever - i thought i would pay homage to the gators with my look!

friday's fancies #24: gators' sweet sixteen.



though i'm willing to bet that justin & i will be enjoying the games this weekend from the comfort of our couch, if we were to attend either a game itself or a viewing party at a friend's, i would be thrilled to slip on these duds in preparation. this miss selfridge coral tie front dress is easy breezy, & with its requisite coloring, we have one of our florida gators bases covered. to complete the hue duo, i'd carry this absolutely gorgeous tory burch robinson chain bag. with our gator palette satisfied, now we can have fun with the accesories! the le silla tan and emerald crystal embellished platform sandals are fun & give a playful nod to the beginning of spring. they aren't matchy-matchy, which complements the casual vibe of the frock. the ray-ban folding wayfarer sunglasses, as well as the etoile isabel marant chloe cardigan, ground this outfit & dress it down a bit, which i think would be key for attendance to a sporting event. the trish mcevoy beauty emergency card for lips in be prepared pink indulges my cosmetics addiction, & is just pure & simple fun. all in all, the perfect combo to cheer on the gators!

Cute dress! I have to admit, I wish it were my team that had played tonight instead of the Gators! We lost in the first round, otherwise we would have played Florida last weekend. Sigh....

Haha, how funny! We used the same dress. :) I went to UTexas. Not too many attractive burnt-orange dresses, I suppose.

So cute - I am so jealous that you get to come up with something as fun as this! UMD wasn't even close to the action this year, so I'm jealous that you get to make an outfit!

Hope your weekend was fabulous!
