Friday’s Fancies | Labor Day

I can’t believe Labor Day Weekend is already upon us. If I was still in school as a little kiddie, this would be our last weekend of freedom before the school days started yet again. In college, it pretty much would have been just like any other weekend, but in college, who can complain? And now… it’s uh, just Labor Day. An excuse for one more time at the pool, to have a BBQ with friends and family, or to get out on the boat one last time. My Labor Days are usually pretty relaxed.

So, this week as I link up with {av} over at {long distance loving} I’ll be showing you an outfit that would be perfect for my holiday weekend!

Labor Day!

Emanuel Ungaro yellow top
Superdry hot denim shorts, $46
Woven shoes, $11
Proenza Schouler teal leather handbag, $1,595
Geometric jewelry, $28
H m jewelry, $11
Pyramid jewelry, $78
Jane Norman twist jewelry, $5.87

I had originally picked a little floral dress but later decided that I wanted something a bit more casual. This outfit is perfect for a backyard BBQ or an evening at a sidewalk cafe. I’ve yet to personally wear this look {as far as the blouse and denim shorts go} but I think it’s great while the weather is still warm-ish. I’ve chosen lots of color in this outfit since I don’t know what I’d do without colors! Chunky, bold jewelry is kind of my thing right now so obviously I had to go that route :) I also tried to incorporate some fun, geometric shapes!

What are your plans for Labor Day this year? Do you choose the more casual fashion approach or do you tend to dress it up a bit?
