OOTD: Coral Polka Dots

I'm headed to Utah and then Las Vegas for some family vacation time, so I'll be MIA for a few weeks. Gigi can't wait to see her grandma and grandpa and of course all of her cousins! I'll catch up with all of you when I get back. :)

Sale Picks

I can't believe I woke up to another sale at Anthropologie! I think that's three weeks in a row, right?!? Here are my picks this week...

Gossamer Flight Cardigan
I'm in love with the cute bird print but also worried that this cardi might be too thin. Anyone tried this one on or seen it in real life?


AG Polka Dot Ankle Stevie
Polka dot printed skinny jeans, yes please! Although it seems like they should have been reduced more than they were.  :(


Bedecked Flounce Tee
This tee looks soft, cute and so easy to wear. And I love the print on the sides and back.

So I ordered this and these in grey, we'll see if either of them work out. What did you end up getting??

OOTD: Maia + Ruffles

Well the weather here in Portland has gone from hot and sunny on Saturday, to rainy and overcast on Sunday. I took advantage of the cooler temps and pulled out one of my fave recent purchases, my Foxglove Boots. I thought I was going to have to wait until Fall to wear these beauties again so I'm glad I got one more opportunity. :) Here's what I wore to church on Sunday...

OOTD: Ampay Inspired

I decided to create another outfit around the Ampay Necklace since I love the colors so much! I think the colors really pop against the black and white pattern. And of course Buddy had to photobomb my pics. :)

Raspberry Picking

Last weekend we went raspberry picking and my little Gigi loved it! Even though she ate every single raspberry she picked, we still got enough for me to make some yummy homemade jam! 
And I had an excuse to wear my Burberry Rain Boots
 I also wore my J.Crew Tippi Sweater and love it so much... I think I might need this one now
We might have to go back so I can pick some marion berries too. :)

Sale Picks

Anthropologie surprised us with another sale today! Here are my picks...

Twirled Tiers Tee
This top looks like it would be super flattering with the cute knot detail. And I love the bright shades it comes in.

Striped Terry Midi Dress
This dress looks so cute, comfy and perfect for summer. I love the laid back vibe but you could also dress it up.

Lacy Jacquard Dishtowel Set
The lace, bright colors and the scalloped edge make these dishtowels a keeper for me. Love these!

So I might end up getting this but I want to try it on first at my local store. Did you pick up anything from today's sale?

OOTD: Foxglove & Zombies

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th! We got together with some friends and had some yummy food and a great time. Well, I promised that I would show these boots in an outfit so earlier this week I got a chance to wear them. Now with the weather finally warming up though I'm probably going to have to wait until Fall to wear them again.

 details...
Anthropologie Pezza Dress, similar here
Anthropologie Cartography Cardigan, similar-ish here
Anthropologie Foxglove Boots, cognac version here
Anthropologie Locket Necklace, similar here (on sale!)

And since I LOVE the show The Walking Dead, I wanted to let you know that AMC is playing both season 1 and 2 this weekend (starting Saturday morning). Now I normally don't like shows with zombies but it is really really good. I think it's kinda like the show Lost (which I also loved), but with zombies. It can get kind of gory and I have to look away from the TV at times, but it's more about the characters than the gore. So if you haven't seen it then put it on your DVR and give it a try! I might be watching it to hold me over until season 3 starts. :)

Sale Picks

Anthropologie surprised us with a great sale today and an extra 25% off clothing! Here are my picks...

Slanted Scoopneck
Love the slanted hem and the gorgeous colored stripes. I'm a little concerned about the sheerness but I might be able to overlook it since it's so pretty.

Lawn Party Skirt
The yellow is so bright and fun for summer and I love the tulle overlay.

Tone Wrapped Peep-Toes
I'm loving the mix of colors in these shoes and the color blocking. I just can't decide which one I like more! I'm just worried that they won't stay on my feet since a lot of the reviews say the heel slips off very easily.

I think I may just end up getting this from today's sale (even with the 25% off ). I do love those sandals but since we have such short summers here I just can't justify them. What did you pick up from the sale??

OOTD: LBD & Microflora

I love getting inspiration from Anthropologie's website. So when I saw this product image for the Microflora Mary-Janes, I knew I wanted to recreate it. I just love the pairing!
I just added a neutral cardigan since I wanted the pumps to still have the spotlight...

This cardigan was one of my lucky finds on eBay. I scored it for $16 on a buy it now auction after stalking it for months! It had some of the detailing on the bow coming off, but that was a super easy fix. Now it has a happy home in my closet. :)
