Friday Fancies : 6 Things

I am a huge coffee lover.
This doesn't change in the summer months, but I do indulge in iced coffee more often; usually as an afternoon pick me up.
2 cream, 2 sugar in case you're wondering. 

Summer Sweets

This golden tank is perfect in the summer months and would easily transition into fall layered under a blazer. I love the cowl neckline + this metallic knit is timeless.

How amazing are these Acne Studios printed trousers? (on sale!)

Tory Burch Revas go with everything. I have a pair in a shade very close to this one and they definitely remind me of a good cafe au lait.

A perfect creamy studded clutch. This one, also by Tory Burch, is so pretty and just large enough to hold keys and coffee money.

TopShop always gets it right with their accessories. This gold chain necklace + these tortoise shell cat eye sunglasses are the perfect addition to this neutral ensemble. 

I was recently tagged by one of my favorites, Sandy from Sandy a la Mode, {please visit if you're not a reader already!} to answer 6 random questions about myself.
Always game!
See my answers below.

1./ What is one of your silly quirks? Or something silly that you get excited about.
When I am checking out at the grocery store, I have to organize everything just so. Fruits and veggies together, anything frozen next, milk products, boxed items. O.C.D? Maybe just a little.
Funny enough, I could care less how it's bagged.

2./ Tell us something we don’t know about you.
I am pretty much an open book...hmmmm.
I was born in Toronto, Canada but am of Croatian (dad) and Slovenian (mom) descent.  
I speak and write in both languages.
Impressed? Yeah, me neither. 

3./ What’s your favorite beauty secret or product?
If I could only use one beauty product for the rest of my life, it would most definitely be Missha's BB cream 23.
I buy it in bulk on ebay at a fraction of what it costs retail although it's really not that pricey to begin with.
Nothing makes my complexion look more even and natural looking.

4./ What’s your favorite or go-to outfit? (pics please)

The outfit I put together above is definitely something I might wear. I dress for both fashion and comfort. That said, in winter months, I definitely radiate toward blacks + greys vs beige + white ensembles but still always classic with a twist.

5./What’s the coolest thing you’ve made? (food, craft, anything)
I'm not much of a DIY'er but I have gotten a little crafty in my old age. 
I love to organize a good party and recently put together all of the decor for Ava's 3rd birthday {you can see it here}. I also do a little cooking, a quick search under recipes will leave you with a few goodies that are both easy to make + yummy. 
Start with this

6./ Share one of your favorite pics. Tell us why it’s your favorite.

This one was HARD. I take so many photos daily and love so many of them for a variety of different reasons. So, with that said, this is ONE of my very favorites. I just love how the white dress pops against the green background and my girls sweet little face. 
I want to eat her.
