Friday Favorites

Got this idea from For All Things Lovely, a fashion blog I've recently started following. I'm pretty sure I've seen other blogs do it as well, and I like it so it will be a regularly featured column on Colorful and Classy :) So here goes Edition 1:

Lilly Pulitzer Murfee Scarf in Green Bean Amani Children's Foundation. I adore Lilly scarves and this might be my favorite that I own. This print is absolutely precious-I love the bright colors and and the adorable lions, giraffes, elephants, zebras, and rhinos in the print. The silk/cashmere blend is lightweight enough that it can still be worn in the Spring before it gets too incredibly hot outside. But best of all this scarf was designed to benefit the Amani Children's Foundation, which I mentioned in my Shop For A Cause post several months ago. At first this scarf was only available at Palm Avenue Via shop locations but it is now available here on the Lilly website.

Shift Dress:
Lilly Pulitzer Jacqueline Dress Embroidered in Sea Breeze Blue. This is from the Spring 2011 collection. As much as I love my Lilly prints I love the classic look of this solid blue dress with white embroidery. The lining is a tangerine color and shows through the cut-outs in the embroidery which adds a nice touch. Whether a solid or print Lilly is all about the little details! This is a great dress for showers, parties, weddings, and luncheons.

J.Crew khaki chino short 5" inseam. These are a staple in my spring/summer wardrobe. I recommend getting them at the outlet-same shorts for a lower price. Currently available at the J.Crew Factory website if you don't live near an outlet. 

Cocktail Dress:
Lilly Pulitzer Bowen Dress in Black After-Party Embroidery. From the Fall 2011 collection. The gold detail on the skirt is even prettier in person. I have worn it to a rehearsal dinner and an engagement party so far.

Bargain Buy:
Old Navy printed tank. Got this on sale a few months ago. Super cute and works great under a cardigan for work and alone with shorts or skinny jeans for outside of the office. 

Citizens of Humanity Avedon Skinny Jeans in Satellite wash. I featured these in an earlier post but had to mention them again because they are my favorite pair of jeans. The Citizens of Humanity Facebook page recently pictured Miley Cyrus wearing these exact jeans-not sure if I should be flattered or not...regardless of your opinion of Miley Cyrus she does have good taste in jeans because these are so classy and comfortable!

Recently found this on Pinterest. Original source here.

I hope that y'all have an absolutely lovely weekend!!! It's supposed to be gorgeous! Glad Spring weather is back!
