Among the trees

It wasn’t until preparing this post that I realized I’m dipped in Anthro head to toe. While it wasn’t intentional, I see how I got to this place. Looking back at some of my first months of blogging, I was busy filling up my closet with Anthro sale items, with the ocassional full-price splurge. It was almost as if I was making up for lost time of not being aware of the style that the store afforded. The problem was that I was coating it on pretty heavily  (in my opinion) and eventually, I started selling or donating items that I hardly reached for or where never my style to begin with. But that was 3 years ago! My style has since changed and developed. While I still have love for Anthro it’s not my only go-to resource for personal style. As for the head to toe Anthro look a few days ago? Well, I chalk that up to being selective in what I pack for a short trip, focusing less on expectations for labels and more on personal preference.

As I mentioned in my last post I made a quick trip down to Florida during the extended weekend  to visit my hometown. Having left the sunshine state over 8 years ago I had forgotten how winter never quite makes it down south, peeling off said wool sweater and tights. I had also forgotten about the beauty that can be found away from the beaches and closer to the state parks. The Spanish moss trees and desolate greenery filled most of my weekend with reflective conversation and an appreciation for solitude.

  1. Gorgeous outfit! I tried to comment on a previous post but not sure if it actually posted–I’m also from Florida! I love going back and appreciate the beauty there so much more now! I hardly even used to notice the Spanish moss at all.

  2. The morning bird sweater coat is definitely one of my favorite purchase this fall, I wear it three times a week & sadly it is piling a lot. I love the first 2 pictures you showed, it is such a different contrast to the wet weather we are having in Northern California.

    • Hi Joelle. Sorry to hear that hte sweater coat is pilling. I haven’t had that experience but I also don’t wear it as often as you have been. But, that can also mean that you enjoy it a lot and reach for it naturally 🙂

  3. There’s something so incredibly…different…about this landscape. And I don’t think it’s just because mine is currently covered in icy snow and -40 temperature…thanks for the breath of fresh air!

    This is a lovely outfit- I think the key is, as you say, favourite pieces. The head-to-toe anything look is only weird and overt when you aren’t comfortable with the layering, as if borrowed from a mannequin or someone else’s styling. Though I too have to be careful of too much of a good thing…

    • -40?!! Oh my Sarah, that is unbelievably cold, I can’t even bear to think about it! And I agree with you, favorite pieces sometimes have expiration dates, but that’s okay, because they’re reflective of the present 🙂

  4. If you ever decide you would like to sell your morning birds sweater coat, I would be happy to take it off your hands (provided it is still in good condition). I missed getting it while it was in stores and have regretted not getting it.
