The weather put a damper on posting outfits for the last couple of days due to the rain. The interesting thing is that with rain comes a lack of excitement for wearing pretty, feminine clothes, so maybe it was a good thing there’s no record of the last few outfits. Finally today, I got a break and out came the sun, if only for a few short, humid hours. Got the chance to meet up with Erin again and we scoped out the pretties at Anthro- what else!! I was really looking forward to trying on some of the new arrivals, particularly the dress, but nothing yet!
Very randomly, I located the Aniseed Skirt by Eva Franco in my size and felt intrigued to try it on. Confession time: I’ve never been a fan of this skirt just due to the stripes and funky shape. Well, once on it was a completely different story and I was instantaneously hooked! So dangerous to try things on sometimes! I just found it so unique and like nothing I’d seen before. I’m well aware that it’s been around for what feels like forever, and soldout online so was afraid to risk not finding it come sale time.
I grabbed the Creative Outlet Tank in pink to see what the skirt would look like with a tank tucked in. Well this tank is just delicious and love its softness and puckering. Go to sale, go to sale!
And to add on to the already mismatched outfit, I topped things off with the Peeking Lace Blazer, which was the only one in my store. I liked it and tried it on in a 0, but the fit is kind of awkward (you’ll soon see) and sizing up to a 2 would have produced a smoother fit.
Well, after such a well-constructed outfit, I had to end things with a pretty green number, the Dreaming in Green Skirt. It is a cutie and runs small so this is a size 2, for reference. Hugs just about everything so this is not for those afraid to showcase their curves. Love its texture and cute buttons, but had to leave it behind because due to J Crew, I own way too many pencil skirts. Still adore this though!
With rain, comes humidity, so shorts it is for today! After looking the shots, I realize a lot of leg was being shown… Oh, and can I just mention that I found this blouse for $20!
