OOTD: Chocolate Chip

It was love at first sight when I saw the Chocolate Chip dress styled in one of Anthropologie's outfit sets. And when both items went on sale a few weeks ago I was so happy that I could recreate it, along with fellow bloggers Tricia and Goldenmeans.

Sarah's House - The Master Bedroom

I'm a big fan of this room. I simply love all of the bright colors she used and that antique quilt she found is beautiful! This room really shows that Sarah Richardson is the queen of mixing patterns. The queen! I never thought that I would like orange, lime and yellow together but when you put them with the right fabric it simply works. What do you think?

LOVE the knobs on this dresser!

And wow, that fireplace is perfection!

This is the last room I'll be featuring so I hope you've had fun touring Sarah's House with me!

OOTD: Lady in Red

I got this Anthropologie top a few years ago and I still love it. It has a fun, modern print that I can wear year round. And I love the color of it. These pumps I'm wearing were a great buy for me since they are both cute and comfortable. They are a break from my normal flats but the heel isn't too high so I can wear them all day. I just noticed that Amazon still has them for a great price here.

Not much is tempting me at this weeks Anthropologie sale, which is a GOOD thing! I think the only thing I'll be picking up is this in green. Today I'm taking Gigi to her monthly doctor's appointment and I'll also stop by Anthropologie since it's on the way. ;)

Blue or Brown?

I need your help readers! I just got my Rise and Fall Cardigans from Anthropologie and now I can't decide which one to keep. I love both but I know it would be nonsense to keep both. So I need your help! Let me know which one you like better by voting below. I am the worst at making decisions so I appreciate any input you have!

OOTD: Channeling Emma Pillsbury

My husband and I have been watching the first season of Glee on Netflix and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite shows! I LOVE Emma Pillsbury! After seeing her in the infamous J.Crew skirt numerous times, I knew that this skirt had to be mine. Just look how cute she is in it...

I remember when it hit the stores but for some reason or another I never got it. So after watching and bidding on several skirts on eBay and seeing them sell for way higher than I wanted to pay, I finally scored one for a reasonable price. And a huge thanks to Kim for helping me figure out my size since I never got to try it on in stores.

What I wore to church today...
J.Crew Canterbury Bells Cardigan, similar here
Anthropologie Scalinata Top
J.Crew Double Serge Bow Skirt (check eBay), similar here
Charles David Alpha Pumps, similar here

OOTD: Octopus Necklace

I really love this necklace, mostly because it has cute flowers and an octopus on it! Since my necklace is no longer available, I think this is a super cute alternative. Here's a close up of my necklace so you can see the little octopus covered in white beads.

I decided to pair the necklace with a simple and super comfortable knit dress that I got from Anthropologie a little over a year ago. Happy Friday everyone and have a wonderful weekend!

What I'm wearing...
J.Crew Featherweight Cotton Bling Button Cardi
Anthropologie grey knit dress, similar here
H&M black leggings, similar here

OOTD: White (& Blue) Stripes

Now that's it's been 5 months since I had Gigi I am totally losing my hair! It's really freaking me out that I'm going to go bald. Aackkk!! I seriously lose hair by the handfuls. I've done my research and know that's it's completely normal to experience this after having a baby but it is still scary. At least I have bangs to cover up the re-growth of new hair so you can't see the baby hairs coming in at my hairline. And I feel much more normal knowing that Katie Holmes went through the same thing as me (but at least I'm not getting married now!) If you look closely, you can see her baby hairs along her hairline.

So anyways, here is what I'm wearing today. I'm taking Gigi to the park today so I had to keep it comfortable with flats and a tee.

What I'm wearing...
H&M striped shirt, similar here
Joe's Raw Hem Kicker
B. Makowsky Gaby Sandals
Anthropologie necklace, similar here on sale

Sarah's House - The Dining Room

I have to admit that when Sara first started designing the dining room, I wasn't a fan of some of her choices (mostly the fabric wallpaper). But when I saw the final product everything really came together. I love how casual it feels but at the same time it can easily be dressed up for guests. That is exactly how I want my dream dining room to be. My favorite things in the room are the antique corbels in the archway, the window seat, and the taller wainscoting.

Stay tuned next week, we'll finish up with the master bedroom!

OOTD: Neopolitan Grey

Another sale day at Anthropologie and man it was a good one! I picked up this and I had to restrain myself from several other purchases! In fact, I'm stopping by my store today to do a return because the Yemaya Cardi didn't work for me. I already have this on hold in both colors so we'll see if either of them work out since I have never tried it on.

And FYI, the Thru The Clouds Tank got a 2nd cut so it's now only $19.95, snag it while you can! What did you pick up?

So here's my outfit of the day...

What I'm wearing...
J.Crew Neapolitan Cardigan
J.Crew Grand Ruffle Tank, similar here
JBrand Ankle-Length Denim Legging
Kate Spade Faith Flats, similar here
Anthropologie Gilden Impatiens Necklace, similar here

OOTD: Stripes & Ruffles

I've worn these sandalsso much this summer. If you can snag a pair I highly recommend them, they seem to go with everything! I have the grey ones but I also like the black or brown and I think the purple would be fun too. They do run a little large, so I recommend sizing down a half size.

This past weekend I went through my closet and got rid of a lot of stuff that I've been holding onto but never wear. So now I have a bags of clothes ready to take to Goodwill. I already feel so much better!

What I'm wearing...
Anthropologie Cattleya Cardigan
J.Crew ruffle tank, similar here
