Anthropological

Last week I did some spring cleaning and I came across a trunk that had some of my favorite skirts from college. Digging up these relics from my past was not only a fun trip down memory lane but also illuminating. My style has certainly changed in the last decade or so. In college I loved Anthopologie above all stores and gravitated much more to a "Boho chic" aesthetic. This included a lot of long, full, embroidered skirts. Now that I am working, my look has become more polished and refined, yet still fun and playful. I still shop at Anthropologie, but I buy only a couple key items each season whereas I used to earmark almost every page of their catalog, lusting after at least one thing on every page.

This Palm Garden skirt is one example of a piece that I recently picked up from Anthropologie. Its print and shape are a little Boho, but I tried to make it look polished with a blouse (instead of just a tee), statement necklace, and cobalt blue heels. I'd love to jet off to some place exotic to take these photos as is always the case in the pages of the Anthro catalogs, but I settled for this little piece of wilderness in the jungle that is Los Angeles.

    1. Thanks Jessica! The shape is really fun with this skirt because it's a "paper bag" skirt with a tie. I don't have any skirts like this, but it's fun for something different. Can't wait to see you for the link up!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jan! I think because of the neutral color palate of this skirt it will go with a lot. It will be fun to style differently in the future.

  9. Cute! I love all the pops of color, especially those super cute blue heels. I've been looking everywhere for heels in that color, never thought to look at H&M. I'll definitely need to check them out - thanks for the tip!
