Friday Fancies 10: Colorblock Me

Shorts - Ruche $38.99, Shirt - Urban Outfitters $69.00, Bag - Melie Bianco $63.00, Sandals - Aldo $40.00, Earrings and Ring - Forever21 $3.80 and $5.80 respectively.

It is officially Friday! Yay!! I'm so happy that it's finally starting to feel like summer and more especially, that I have my boyfriend here to take in this beautiful weather with me. On Wednesday, we decided to have a dinner date in Hoboken followed by a trip to a candy shop where we selected some treats that were devoured later on that night and the following day. We're big on candy. Thursday was my best friend's graduation (congratulations Samantha!). I'm so thankful I was able to partake in her special day. And well, today, the boy and I are going to run a couple boring errands, walk around a bit, and have a date tonight so for this Friday Fancies, I wanted to pick out an outfit that could go from day to night (since we're probably not going to have the chance to come back and change) and still look good for both occasions. Plus, I've always wanted to experiment with some color blocking so I thought this might be the perfect opportunity for that. I am crazy for all things teal/turquoise/mint green and I have always have been so I think I'm a bit obsessed with this particular color blocking combo. I have even incorporated this obsession into my choice of accessories.
These are the two rings I purchased from Hell's Kitchen Flea Market last weekend. I love the detail on both of the rings and that I was able to negotiate the price down to something I wanted to pay. Then again, I probably would have bought them anyway, haha. I also have tons of blue/teal/green earrings that I love!

What are you guys doing this weekend? Brett and I are going to Ikea tomorrow to shop around a bit for things to organize my desk area and watch the planes from Newark Airport take off since it's right across from Ikea's foodcourt. In other words, we're probably staying in Ikea all day. We walk around all of the showrooms and pick out things that we would want in our future apartment someday. It's a little fun seeing what things we both love and seeing what things we completely disagree on. I know I'm going to love being able to decorate with him once we get our own place. I.Cannot.Wait. Then, we have a ice cream double date with my friend and her boyfriend in Hoboken at night. Sunday, we're going to Rutgers for one of the last times to hand in our keys to our college houses and Monday we're going to my family's house in New York for a Memorial Day BBQ. I missed the smell of BBQ and summer. :) Hope you all have a FANTASTIC weekend. 

Yay Friday!
