Friday's Fancies: March Madness!

{via}

It's here! Friday! Yay!

As promised, I will not blog about The Hunger Games. All I will say is that I want to see it again.

Moving on...

It's Friday's Fancies time! The lovely {av} over at Long Distance Loving has yet another fun theme for today: March Madness! My Hoyas did not make it to this round of the dance, but I still wanted to participate. You see, I have been so very homesick for DC lately, especially knowing that the District is currently in full bloom. From Cherry Blossoms to budding trees to even the pollen, I miss DC like crazy. Enter Fridays Fancies and I had to take the opportunity to bust out the preppy spring wardrobe.
Friday's Fancies: Georgetown



Georgetown colors are blue and gray, but I chose to stick with the navy preppy look for today. I picture wearing this on the roof of the Car Barn overlooking the Potomac River, chatting with my friends and snacking on delicious Oreo cookies from Wisey's. Then we would grab boat drinks at Sequoia on the Georgetown Waterfront. Ahhh memories. I feel like I have seen this look on campus and around M & Wisconsin for years. I have always loved this classic look. Of course I picked terribly expensive pieces I will never own, such as the lust-worthy Tory Burch sandals and dramatic Kate Spade necklace. Since Vineyard Vines is a few blocks from campus, many ladies truck around these totes so I had to include one.

So how did I do Carly and {av}? Did I capture the Georgetown vibe? :)

Head on over to see the team spirit on Long Distance Loving! Have a great weekend!

I like the unique take you took this week, instead of just using school colors (like I did haha). My desktop picture right now is cherry blossoms outside the Capitol. Sigh....

I would wear that outfit in a heartbeat, probably because so many of my outfits are like this! I love the patterned full skirt and it looks great with the blazer and your accessories. I hope had a good week and are enjoying your weekend!

As a DC-ian as well (I go to UMD - close enough, right??) I think you captured it well! I totally get why you miss the area - it's so gorgeous in the spring. However, that skirt is to DIE for - totally perfect for a DC spring!

Hope your weekend was fabulous!
