Daily outfit 7/3/2014

It’s Fancy Friday again!  This Friday my outfit isn’t quite as dressy as previous weeks.  The weather has become hot and humid again so I’m back in shorts.

However this week I did make an extra-special effort with my hair.  I took the time to pin-curl my hair and leave it to set overnight.  I really should do this more often, because I love having a head full of bouncy, bombshell curls.

I am wearing:

– Black floral butterfly-sleeve top from Target

– Nude shorts (thrifted)

– Brown Zu platform heels (thrifted)

– Silver bangles (from my aunt)

– Blue beaded earrings (once belonged to my great-grandmother)

– Assorted silver rings.

Sometimes, being fancy isn’t about getting all dressed up in your glitziest clothes.  It can be as simple as taking the time to curl your hair, swipe on some lipstick or paint your nails a gorgeous hue.  That’s what Fancy Friday is all about: adding a little zing to your style at the end of the week, in whatever way suits you.

These shorts were a recent op-shop find. I’ve been after a pair of soft, silky shorts for some time and these were just the ticket.  They’re so cool and comfortable, and the neutral colour means that they go with practically everything.  Not bad for $3!

What are you wearing this Fancy Friday?


  1. Pajamas at the moment as it’s only 4:50am here, not sure about later in the day – it will likely depend on if it snows again today or not.

    Your hair looks sensational here! So bouncy, feminine and very, very Veronica Lake approved.

    Great sandals/heels! I love a classic brown shoe like that. Every bit as a versatile as black, but more apt to bring an extra dose of warmth to one’s hair/skin/eyes.

    Big hugs & tons of happy Friday wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

    • Thank you so much. I just love these shoes. I got them from the op-shop several years ago for $5 and they have served me very well. I was lucky enough to find an identical, brand new pair in my size last year at a different thrift store. I’ve put them away as a back-up when this pair inevitably fail.
