Friday's Fancies { Labor Day }

I love taking part in Friday's Fancies over at Long Distance Loving, because you're encouraged to throw price tags aside and choose any piece of clothing or accessory that suits your fancy. My actual closet contains much more affordable items than my Friday's Fancies virtual closet, but why not dream a little. I had fun dreaming big with my colorful outfit for Labor Day this week.

This silk pocket top by Joie is the perfect neutral palette for adding fun pops of color.

A cute chevron pattern never gets old. I just love these 7 for All Mankind Carlie Ikat shorts.

Adding these Tory Burch dandelion flip flops to the mix definitely gives this outfit a primary color theme. Nothing like a bright pop of yellow to make your feet happy.

My Labor Day outfits needs some cute accessories like this House of Harlow Rocky Mountain cuff and these Baublebar southwest boho drop earrings for a nice touch of blue and red.

This Marc by Marc Jacobs nylon Natasha bag is the perfect size to carry my Labor Day necessities like cash, lipgloss, and maybe even our point and shoot camera.

I'd finish off my Labor Day outfit with these gorgeous Tom Ford FT0224 sunglasses. I cannot live without sunglasses in the sunshine state!

Do you have any plans for Labor Day weekend?
Growing up in northern Michigan, we always had a big Labor Day get together at the lake. I also knew that Labor Day always meant the imminent return to school. Now Labor Day signals the upcoming return of the snowbirds to Florida. My how times have changed.

this song talks about what I'd really love to be doing this Labor Day....
