My Anthropologie Look

I have to say this outfit looked better in person. I always take photos in a rush and it never seems to be in good light. I had a mommy today told me I looked I stepped out of an Anthropologie catalog so hence the title. Although I use their catalog and store for inspirations only and shop their sale rack amazingly this look is not from them or inspired by them but the pieces do look like things they would sell. This skirt is just one of those finds that work great any season and looks so much pricier than its $15 tag. And with its pockets it is so practical. I love this idea of adding burgandy tights under clothes for that unexpected look. And of course going with brown shoes instead of black is another little twist. I had this combo on my list with a khaki cardigan but as I put everything on, thought this old cardigan would be better. The dark pink in the flowers compliment the tights. The cardigan is something I had when I was 12 or 13! Must have been big and chunky then and it is nice and fitting now. I love its tassles and large wooden buttons. It did get warm today so it was perfect that I had a (grey) tank underneath.

This is at 7:30 AM this morning and i have not had coffee yet. You can tell from my face...

Chunky cardigan - I guess you can call it vintage
Grey Tank - from Turkey
Skirt - Charlotte Russe
Burgandy tights - we love colors website
brown mary janes - blowfish from

Today's Activities: Actually left on time for preschool this morning. Possibly cause I caught my husband before he left for work to do my photo shoot and both my son and I were dressed before breakfast. It helps cause kids have lots of play time there before the first circle time starts which causes them to be better behaved during the circle time. We had lunch outside as it was a georgous day with summer warm weather. After naps, took down the halloween decorations against my son's cries and pleads. He hates to let any holiday decorations go. Christmas is the worst and lets face it after Christmas not much to look forward to. I did put two cute scarecrows out for 'harvest' decorations and he was pleased with that. I might go to my favorite discount store for decorations (pic'n'save) and get some more Thanksgiving/fall decorations as the kids really enjoy this kind of stuff. We met a friend with kids at the indoor play area for the afternoon.
