fashion friday...color crush

It's Friday, Friday!  And that means I'm linking up with the lovely {av} over at long distance loving for my Friday's Fancies.

Today's Friday's Fancies is "color crush." It was so hard to pick my favorite color so I chose orange and aqua.  Those are two pretty hot colors right now and perfect for the summer!

I've got summer on the brain so I went with a fun beach/pool/lake outfit.  Accessories are so much fun  and I'm pairing these orange accessories with this lovely white bathing suit.  I have a similar white bathing suit and now I need to find some awesome orange accessories.  I love how they pop against the white!

My other color crush recently is aqua.  I actually just picked up a cute tunic at H&M last weekend with the same pattern as this top.  I love it and it was so cheap!  I also got that bold necklace.  Won't it be such a cute outfit with my new top necklace and skinny white jeans...I think so!

I'm also linking up with Tara and Vicki for The Nail Files.  Last week I posted another NYC color called Times Square and Alyssa over at Never a Dull Moment told me she picked up NYC Greenwich Village.  I asked her what color and it was and she said its a bright pink.  I'm a sucker for bright pink nail polish so the other day I went to pick it up.  And I'm obsessed!  NYC is the best and it's so cheap.  I love it!!

I gave myself a pedi and mani both in NYC Greenwich Village.  It's for sure my summer go-to color this year!  

This weekend Mr. H and I are going to spend the weekend at his parent's lake house.  His brother and sister will be there too so it will be a good time.  We'll be celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday and Mother's Day!  I'm looking forward to lounging and eating yummy food.  

I hope all you lovely ladies have a relaxing and fun weekend!  Don't forget to tell your mom you love her Sunday!  :)
