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....
i need that bag like woah!

Happy weekend!

Haha, how funny! We used the same dress. :) I went to UTexas. Not too many attractive burnt-orange dresses, I suppose.
Eveeen though Florida messed my brackets up pretty badly, I love your outfit, haha. and I love that you are rocking a dressy gameday outfit like I am!

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!

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
