Worth the Wait

You know that feeling when you've waited forever to wear something and then you finally do and love it even more than you thought you would?  Ya, me too.


What I Wore
Revolved Blooms Blouse-Anthropologie
Colored Toothpick Ankle Denim-J Crew Factory
Seychelles "Purr' Wedge Sandals-Shoes.com
Ampay Necklace-Anthropologie
Enameled Dot Bangle-J Crew Factory
Gold Bangles-Gap Outlet
Earrings-Old Navy (OLD)
Flower Bud Ring-J Crew

I loved this top from the second I tried it on but promised myself I would wait until it went on sale to get it.  Finally it did and I snatched it up quickly.  I wore it yesterday to my best friend's 40th birthday breakfast (Happy Birthday Elise!!!).  I wanted so badly to get it in the solid read color it came in too but at the time I passed.

After wearing this yesterday, I decided I needed the red motif too.  It's on it's way.  When I find a unique looking short sleeved top that can be worn alone without layers that I love, I pretty much have to jump on it these days I've decided.  They're really hard to find!  I have a feeling I will be so glad I have a supply to select from when I'm suffering in the humidity this summer!

So did you pick anything up on sale at Anthro yesterday?  I grabbed a few pretties to add to my closet:

Highlighted Frequencies Cardigan
I've been eyeing this for months!  So happy it finally went on sale!!!

Cerise Stamped Dress
This is another item I've had on my wish list for quite sometime.  Hubby and I are staying at a resort in Scottsdale,AZ for four days and three nights this summer sans kiddos (graduation present to ourselves) and I thought this would be a great option to wear one night to dinner while we're there...keeping it light and airy in the AZ heat!

Ruffled Ribbed Tee 
The color and design of this top are what I couldn't pass up...it's gorgeous!  Can't wait to pair it with several things in my closet.

So that's my damage...how'd you do?  Pick anything up?  Do tell!

I'm looking forward to the weekend, how about you?  I could use a few days off.  This weekend hubby and I are celebrating our 11th Wedding Anniversary (on Cinco de Mayo, of course!).  Time flies when you're deep into school, residency, having three kids and moving multiple times!  =)  Love my guy more and more each year.

Have a great day!

  1. Happy Anniversary! You look beautiful in your Revolved Blooms - I love the print on that one so much! And I was pretty well behaved with the sale, just the same Ruffle Ribbed Tee that you grabbed.

  3. Too funny. I'm wearing that top today, but with a gold pencil skirt. I love those jeans with the top. Are they from this season? You look fabulous as always and I really like your new haircut.

    1. Oh, I love the idea of pairing this with my gold J Crew No 2 Pencil skirt...thanks for that! =) The jeans are new from J Crew Factory...they just popped up on their website also this past week...they came in this color, a blue and a green. Thanks so much for your kind words!

    1. Thanks Mindie! I just looked up the name of the color...it's called "Poppy". Here's a link to them: http://www.jcrew.com/womens_factory_category/allnew/PRDOVR~77088/99102669953/ENE~1+2+3+22+4294967294+20~255~~205+17~15~~~~~~~/77088.jsp

      I found they ran TTS to a little big so size down if you can. Their smallest size is a 25 otherwise I would have tried another size down I think...they're not too, too baggy but just not as fitted through the legs as maybe they could be. I may take them to get altered eventually. No biggie for now though...love the color so much I had to get them! They're like a bright, reddish-coral.

  5. Absolutely beautiful! The Anthro here is pretty small and it seems that things sell out long before they go on sale.

    1. Thanks so much! I happen to live within 4 Anthros all different directions of me now and 2 of them are a little smaller than the rest. Only one of the stores carries shoes. I tend to do a lot of charge sends for things because my stores also sell out of things in my size quickly too. I feel your pain! =)

  7. I can only shop Anthro online and lately, nothing has been calling my name - probably because I can't see it in person. Also probably a good thing!
