Guest Post: Frock Fridays with {av}

I'll be back tomorrow to share my adventures in England with you, but first I want to say a big thank-you to all of my fantastic guest posters - you guys are the best!  And there's no one better to round out this amazing week of wonderful bloggers than the queen of Fridays Fancies: {av}.  A survivor of a long-distance relationship herself and a style maven on an international scale, I'm delighted that she's here to give us a perfect example of classic jetsetting!


Hi there! I'm {av}, the lady behind {long distance loving}. Betsy and Jon are the prime example of a couple making it work from afar, so I'm beyond thrilled to stand in today for Friday's Fancies while she enjoy some much-needed time with her beau. I pulled together this little ensemble, which would be perfect for Betsy as she travels.

Say hello to this J.Crew Tippi Striped Sweater--the ideal pullover for a long plane ride. Why? It is cozy without being too bulky and still looks super cute!

In order to make all your connections, a gorgeous timepiece {like this Marc by Marc Jacobs Amy Crystal Bracelet Watch} is an absolute must. 

A chic traveler always carries a fantastic yet versatile tote--and this Mulberry Leather Weekend Bag fits the bill with ease. The simplicity gives it beauty.

Dark jeans add polish to anyone's look. Slip on these amazing AG Adriano Goldschmied Farrah Skinny Jeans and immediately up your style factor!

With a bit of height, these J.Crew Janey Metallic Flats keep your toes in comfort--but are far from boring. They would also work well with plenty of ensembles, which is important for travel!
Many, many thanks to Betsy for having me here today! I've been so lucky to get to know her online--and in person :) I only wish I still lived in DC so I could enjoy her on a more regular basis. I can't wait for the day that she and Jon are finally united for good! Enjoy every minute of your visit, Betsy--and I hope each of you have a phenomenal weekend.  xoxo {av} | {long distance loving}
