Hey-Oh!  Welcome to this week's edition of Friday Favorites.  Instead of doing a featured top five as usual, I'm doing a Featured Fave Five in outfits, because I want to join in with my friends Kellyann,
Chrissy, Lisa, Shelly, Andrea, and Laura for their Red, White, Blue & You theme link-up which opens Monday, July 1 (you don't have to feature clothing--decor, recipes, etc. are welcome)!  Here's a recap of a couple of new outfits and ones that have been on the blog previously.  

1.  White Jeans + Red Sleeveless gauze top (above).  This top was purchased kind of on impulse right before my trip to Animal Kingdom.  It promised to be cool and have a little style.  It's only been worn that one time, because I wasn't a fan of how the gauze crinkles seemed to relax and make the top look overly big around.  Now that I've seen it again in this photo, I'm going to start pulling it out.  It is really wide at the bottom, so will have to have some sort of permanent tuck or knot when it gets worn.  I really like the embroidered details and tassels.  As much as I'm a necklace person, you can see it doesn't need one.  Original post:  Friday Favorites #9.

2.  Rolling Stones t-shirt (found at Cotton On) + Maxi.  Beige and it's tan-neutral family stands in for white for me.  Why?  I don't "do" optic white, so this is friendly and inclusive for my interpretations.  Ha!  The American Eagle skirt was white with red and blue pin stripes, it was tea dyed.  Original post:  What to Wear to a Sand Sculpture Festival.

3.  Denim Midi (Thrifted) + Leopard Booties.  Same t-shirt, this time with a little edge adding the pointed toe booties (I can't even!) and frayed hem.  This is my I'm dressed up, but don't give me any B.S. look!  To change it up for summer, I'd remove the cardi, add leopard sandals and red accessories.  Original post:  What to Wear with a Denim Midi Skirt.

4.  Johnny Was top + Lucky Brand jeans.  Although this Johnny Was top is long-sleeved, it's gauze, so it's pretty comfortable even when the temperatures climb.  This was also tea dyed.  You know how sometimes you buy something that is a real "winner?"  Well, this is one of those pieces, every time I pull it out to wear my inner fashionista does a happy dance.  It may be because it's self-accessorized with all of the embroidery, frayed edges, pieced front and overall cut.  I'd pop off the cardi and wear with a skirt in warmer weather.  Original post:  Johnny Was Top with Red Cardigan.

5.  White Top + Blue Jeans + Red Accessories.  I considered pulling out a red skirt for my last look, but I wanted to copy this outfit from my friend, Fonda, at Savvy Southern Style.  It's hard to see, but the front of the top is eyelet and the "dots" you see are small clusters of gold sequins.  This top was dyed in a tan/yellow dye solution, so it looks yellow-y in person.  Fonda wore a lighter-weight pair of pants, which would be wiser when it's hot!  I couldn't resist adding the leopard belt.
