My boyfriend, who lives in DC, came into town this weekend! He appreciates Anthro clothes on me the perfect amount---enough that I feel wonderful wearing them (and not guilty buying them), and not so much that I feel like I'm dating Michael Kors. Perhaps this is a valid excuse for wearing 98% Anthro in these outfits? Or maybe the fact that my closet is 98% Anthro? Eventually I will diversify, just as soon as this store stops being so lovely.
Oh wait...bad plan...
Pre-Arrival House Lounging:
I gotta say, this is the first of Anthro's chemises that I've kept---they usually look too nightgown-y for me---but I really, really love this one. After this weekend, I now completely see the appeal of a chemise. It's perfect when you want to wear something comfy and casual to lounge around the house, but you still want to look pretty.
Chemise: Interpretation Chemise (Anthro)
Cardigan: Imitation "Field Game" Cardigan by Pleione (Marshalls)
Shoes: Tied Scutes Flats (Anthro)
Necklace: Local Street Market
A Night on the Town
We had dinner, saw a play ("A Small Fire") and then hit up a few bars (including Rolf's, which you MUST visit ASAP if you live within five hours of NYC---here's why) and then went for pommes frites.
I don't know why I look like a linebacker in the first photo...BF took the picture and he's taller than me, so perhaps its an angle thing.
Dress: Cordial Embrace Dress (Anthro) (I passed over this SO many times in the sale section, but recently tried it on and it blew me away. This one is less than $35 on sale!)
Bodysuit: Arabesque Bodysuit (Anthro)
Belt: Nimble Paisley Belt (Anthro)
Tights: Minuet in 3/4 Tights (Anthro)
Shoes: Rensellaer T-Straps (Anthro)
Necklace: Zodiac Necklace (Anthro)
A Day on the Town
I never thought I'd say these words, but Jeggings saved the day! I really wanted to wear this fun, frilly frock, but it was just too dressy with tights. Jeggings TOTALLY did the trick, I think. I still looked like I was wearing a dress, but the denim legging dressed it down the perfect amount.
(PS: I'm still reluctant to accessorize this dress. Any thoughts? Am I limited only to necklaces? Maybe a brightly-colored skinny belt?)
Jeggings: J.C. Penny (yeah, you read that right. I'm not ALWAYS fiscally irresponsible) (these are the ones I got, but these look better somehow)
Boots: Aldo Legacy Boots (on sale here) (next time I wear this dress, I promise to wear different boots)
Necklace: Gift from BF, purchased in Brazil
Earrings: See-Through Petals Posts (Anthro) (I actually hate these. I don't know why I have them in two colors)
