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.
