I won!

 

Effortless Fall 4

 

 

I'm baaaaaack. I turned 30 over the weekend and my sweet husband surprised me with a trip to New Orleans! We had an amazing romantic weekend- I promise to share pictures really really soon (like tomorrow.) In the meantime, I just wanted to share a little piece of good news I got yesterday- I won a $50 Anthropologie Giftcard in the Effortless Anthropologie Show Your Style Challenge!! Sweet Roxy gave away several giftcards for cute fall styling ideas using (what else?) Anthropologie items and I was chosen for this little ensemble. Thank you Roxy!!! If you do not follow her blog (and are an Anthro lover like me) then get over there and check it out. Now, how do I spend my winnings...

P.S. I'll also be beck this week to share how I did on my 30 for 30 Challenge.

Behold: BHLDN

I have a love/hate relationship with Anthropologie's new Wedding Line, BHLDN. I LOVE EVERYTHING about the designs: the gorgeous gowns, the perfectly adorned shoes, the delicate hair pieces...and I HATE that they launched after MY wedding. You're about a year too late Anthro! Oh well, I loved our wedding and wouldn't change a thing, but I am a little jealous of all the women who get to be BHLDN Brides. The silver lining: I can still choose from their pretties for parties, holidays & vacation ensembles! Check out the gorgeousness above and see everything they have to offer here.

Paper Gangsta

Yeah, that's my current favorite Gaga song. Love it. And its appropriate for this post cause these dresses are made out of paper. I must have stood in front of Anthropologie visually dissecting these things for at least 20 minutes. And then I started photographing them. I'm pretty sure the manager thought I was casing the joint. I couldn't help myself- they are so beautiful. Can you blame me?

Anthropologie's Bianka Blouse: The Best Top Ever?

Hello pretties! I hope everyone is having a lovely day. If you know me, or have read the blog, you know I am a die-hard Anthropologie addict. And, if its even possible, now I am an even bigger fan. I ordered the Bianka Blouse last week and it has quickly become my new fave top. On the hanger, you might not think much of it, but put this baby on and WOWZA! It really is the perfect top-comes in lovely colors and patterns, so cute untucked with jeans on the weekends or dressed up with a pencil skirt and heels for work. I cannot rave about it enough. I have it in the Rust color, but really think I'll be ordering it in the Green Motif as well. Here's the blessed top, how I'm wearing it today, and a few ways I'm planning on wearing it in the future. Enjoy!
