Really tired of talking about the weather since it feels so superficial, but it’s really cramping my style and getting tired of the lack of sun and plethora of rain. It affects my mood, my decision on what to wear, and how much time I’ll spend walking versus driving my car. I had it all planned out for today, was going to wear the highly-coveted Bouquet-of-Roses heels with something, anything, but after finding out that rain was on the horizon, I had to keep them safely tucked at home. Bummer, but there’s always tomorrow!! I really do like the winter, but I think at this point I’m ready for some sort of change.
So I stopped by Anthropologie to return a couple of items that were bought on impulse and no rationale was really applied when pulling the trigger, and since I was there, I really wanted to try on a couple of newish dresses.
First, there is the Reed Shirtdress, which I simply adore. Cannot get enough of plaid, and picked up both the blue and orange versions in sizes 0 and 2 just to get a better understanding of the fit. I loved it on Kim and Tien and had to see for myself. Here’s the winner:
Even though I’m a big fan of red, the blue number spoke to me. Oh, and size 0 fit best because I’m not packing much on top and have pretty small arms (even though I try to build muscle there).
The next dress I went for is the All Seasons Shirtdress in the ivory color. I liked this color best because it’s really versatile and gave me a vintage/antique feel. I tried on the size 0 and fit tts. No gaps anywhere and not any looser than it needed to be. I liked it okay. Definitely waiting for a sale with this one because I feel I can find it elsewhere, and maybe even in my closet! I wish I had my camera with me so I could show the fit, but maybe next time!
As for what I wore today, I’ve been meaning to wear this “cape” for the longest time but because it’s a unique piece, I always have to take extra time in thinking of how to wear it. Decided to keep the top part of me in sync using the same color, so tucked in this blouse underneath. It has pretty ruffles in the front, but I’ll have to showcase those another day. And I totally love these shoes, even though I didn’t end up wearing them for the remainder of the day since that darn wind is so strong.
