Friday's Fancies - Memorial Weekend

Happy Friday and Happy long weekend! My office is closing at noon today so I'm going to head out early for a mani/pedi and then home to pack for vacation! B.P. has a high school friend getting married this weekend and we're taking an extended stay to enjoy some much needed time off.

This week's Friday's Fancies is all about your upcoming Memorial Weekend plans. I'll probably be wearing shorts most of the weekend but I still need to decide what to wear to the actual celebration. I own all four of these Lilly Pulitzer dresses with tags still on! (Hello, my name is Emily and I have a Lilly addiction!) They're all so cute I wish I could rotate throughout the party! Fortunately we have a few other weddings to attend this summer so these should all get use.

Whatever your plans for the long weekend please be safe and have lots of fun!

Friday's Fancies - Chambray Season

Three cheers for Friday! Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! My work weeks are becoming long, stressful and overall exhausting and I so look forward to the weekends. I'm pretty sure I say this every Friday! :)

This week Friday's Fancies is all about the latest chambray trend. I'm loving everything in chambray right now. I picked up this J Crew chambray blouse last weekend and I'm on the hunt for a great chambray shirt dress. I think this anthropologie dress is going on my summer wish list!

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

This weekend I went to see the Encores! staging of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes staring the amazing Megan Hilty. This is the first time I've been to an Encores! performance at NYC City Center. The performances are short run, typically less than a week and bare bones. That said, the minimal sets and costumes did not disappoint!

Here are some clips courtesy of 

Unfortunately it only ran through the weekend but you can read the New York Times review here with more details. The Encores! season is complete but it will be back and if you have a chance definitely catch a future performance.

On another note, I had a great time with the girls from the office! I'm so excited to be making some connections with girl friends again. Here's hoping there are more fun nights ahead of me!

Friday's Fancies - Color Crush

I'm ready for summertime! Now if it would just stop raining and warm up I could actually wear shorts and dresses! This week's Friday's Fancies theme is your latest color crush and lemon yellow is my choice. It's so sunshiny and happy and just looking at the brightness warms me up.

Tonight I am going to see "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" at City Center Stage. I am so excited because Megan Hilty (of Smash!) will be in the short run production. As an update to my post last week "A City of 8 Million...", I'm going to see the show with a couple of girls from the office. I'm so excited to see the show and I'm excited that I've found a way to break the ice. I'll share with you next week all the details of the show!

Happy Friday, and enjoy the weekend!!
