Today I love Mondays...and a few new Anthro fitting room reviews!!

Happy Monday everyone!  I used to love Mondays.  I liked the fresh start each week.  Then after my kids started school a few years ago, I started to dread them.  Getting up early after relaxing weekends weren't my favorite.  Now, I think I'm back to loving them.  Anthro decided to switch their sale days to Mondays a few weeks ago so now I welcome Monday morning!  It's so fun to wake up to markdowns!  Although I was tempted by quite a list of items this morning, I was good and only purchased two new things:



I decided to choose just two things and save for some fun fall items next month (with my birthday discount--woo hoo!!).  I popped into Anthro over the weekend at the Cincinnati store which was fabulous, and tried on a few new items.  Overall I wasn't too impressed with what I tried on, to be honest, but of course I still managed to add a few things to my wish list. Here are a few reviews of the things I loved most:



In real life:



Hello gorgeous!  I instantly fell in love with this gorgeous trench the minute I saw it and trying it on only sealed the deal.  This lovely is now sitting high on my birthday wish list.  I took this in a size 0.  I didn't try on a 2 because they didn't have one, but based on the online reviews I'd stick with a 0.  According to reviews, it runs large.  The color is navy but it is very dark, which is fine with me.  It closes with a side zipper under the flap and then with the buttons you see on the front.  The material is good quality and easily moves with you...not too stiff at all.  I love it because I can easily wear this to church on Sundays...it's dressy enough for that, yet casual enough for everyday wear.  A+ in my book...this is classic Anthro done well.

Tiered Ruffles Open Cardigan



In real life:



Absolutely loved this cardigan.  It is gorgeous!  I tried it on in the yellow and thought it was very pretty.  Then come to find out it comes in a pale pink too...how does one choose? =)  Take this in your regular size...I went with an X-Small.  It is a great length and the back detailing is fantastic.  It doesn't flare at all to the sides because the ruffles are only in the back, leaving your hips to look their normal width.  Thank you to whoever made sure that was the case!  Wish listed!



In real life (pardon the awful pattern mixing):



The colors in this cardigan scream fall...totally love these colors...they're so pretty!  I only tried on a Small in this and it was a pretty good fit but would like to try an X-Small to compare.  It is a very versatile option to have in the fall rotation.



In real life:


Last but certainly not least, this was so cute on and it will definitely be finding its way to my closet for fall.  Classic navy and white stripes with a fun twist!  I took this in an X-Small and it fit perfect.  I would say, based on a convo I had with my best friend, that this sweater is more suited for those who don't have a whole lot going on up top...it fit me well since I'm not super blessed up there. In fact, it actually made me look a little more blessed than I am! =)  Score!   But everyone is different, so give it a go...you never know!   It's a little sheer so I may wear a cami underneath to avoid any worry.  Wish listed!

So there you have it...my favorite finds on my Anthro trip.  

What do you have your eye on lately?  Did you pick up anything from the Anthro sale?  Do tell!

Hope you had a great weekend and enjoy your Monday!

  2. I was totally thinking of you this morning and wondering which colorway you would grab in that blouse - I got the same one :) That trench coat is gorgeous and looks amazing on you,! hello tiny waist! If I didn't already own the Clinton Trench in navy I would be very tempted. Love and want both cardis you tried on, so happy to read your thumbs up reviews on them.

  4. Love everything, but especially the trench, yellow cardi and the stiiped sweater. So cute. Thanks for the great reviews. I'm not sure if it's just me but it seems like there were more things at Anthro that I loved last year at this time compared to this year, at least so far that is. I'm sure that will change.

    1. Melissa, It's called the Rotary Dial Necklace (Item #24738981). I called CS and there were a ton available in both green and yellow. I can't remember what other colors it came in besides those two though. Hoping that mine ships with all the issues Anthro has had with shipping. Good luck!!

  8. Great reviews! :) I picked up the Ampay Necklace today...which is old news to most, but I was really holding out for sale on that one since I wasn't sure how many things I could really pair it with in my closet. I'm hoping I'm going to love it as much as others do.

    1. That's what Elise said! I liked it too but wasn't sure about the sheerness factor...we'll see. It may be a sale purchase for me eventually.
