Antho shopping...for home...and an OOTD

Since moving into our new house we have done a lot of "home" shopping.  The house we came from was about half the size of our home now (you can get much more bang for your buck in the mid-west!) so we had a lot to purchase, and still do.  It'll be a process to get it all done and decorated. I'm working on it little by little.  One room I have never spent much time or money on in the past is our master bedroom.  It's the room that always gets forgotten.  When we moved here I vowed to make it a priority.  We finally bought an actual bed (instead of the box spring and mattress we've always just used, and when Anthropologie had their 25% off bedding promo this past week I simply couldn't resist.  I bought myself an early birthday present:


I can't wait for it to arrive!  
I think after 11 years of never decorating our master bedroom, it's well overdue.  

Since we're talking Anthro, I thought I'd share a sale score I grabbed a few weeks back:


Given Then Gathered Column Dress-Anthropologie, Floral Watercolor Cardigan-J Crew Factory, Belt-J Crew Factory, Crest-Cut Wedges-Anthropologie, Sweet Drops Necklace-Anthropologie, Earrings-Pree Brulee, Bardot Spiral Bracelet-Stella & Dot, Flower Bud Ring-J Crew

I couldn't believe the Given Then Gathered Column Dress went on sale so soon...even if it was just for a limited time only.  I decided on the striped motif as I thought it would be most versatile. So many possibilities!  

This is the last full week of summer vacation for us so we'll be enjoying a bit of sleeping in, lounging around and just playing it by ear...gotta enjoy not having a schedule while we can!  We managed to get backpacks and lunch bags purchased already but we still need to go do the school supply shopping trip at Target this week...us and a ton of others, I'm sure!  Best of luck to all those heading back this week!

Have a great Monday!

    1. I have a hard time believing that dress could make you look anything but fab, girl! But I know how it goes...some things work, and others don't. Lucky for you pretty much everything works! =) My trip to Target last night lasted just under 2 hours and I still didn't get everything off my boys' lists...also have to go find those darn folders! Some with clasps and some without. And always in particular colors. Welcome back to school! =)
