You Fancy, eh?

Ever feel like you’re neglecting your bottom half and rubbing it in it’s (um) face by wearing fun, eye-catching prints on top? Ok, maybe not. But whether or not you’ve realized it, you probably haven’t been giving your bottoms the same, spring print love you’ve showed your tops.

Let’s fix that with some Fancy Pants!

Points of Passion: Inspiration Friday

This inaugural Inspiration Friday happens to fall on one of the most anticipated weekends of the year. I’m kicking off Memorial Day Weekend with a half-day at work and well-deserved margaritas with co-workers. Here are a few charming links and intriguing photos to get you ready for this glorious, unofficial start to summer…

Living in New York during the summer, it seems as though as the week creeps closer to Friday, less and less peoplecommute to work. By the end of the week you would think that about half of the 1.6 million people that live in Manhattan have vanished… or simply relocated to the blissfully picturesque scene of Americana that is the Hamptons.

A friend of mine was recently lucky enough to visit a family members house before it became occupied for the summer. This was her view from the back porch…


Not bad.

This weekend I plan to imagine I am sunbathing on those gloriously manicured beaches by indulging in some Hamptons-inspired fashion and cuisine.

I feel like I haven’t worn a bikini in forever.. but when I do, it will definitely be one of these.

Unfortunately this weekend will still be a bit brisk in NYC [so much for the official kick-off of Summer] – so I’ll be forgoing the bikini for something a bit more accommodating  Not to mention I happen to be extremely partial to the yellow and grey look this spring…
