Unexpected Punch of Color

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a great 3-day weekend!  We had a seriously productive weekend around our house and I can happily say I finally feel like this house is our home.  I would actually be ok with people coming over now. =)  So happy Anthro sale day!  Unfortunately the extra 25% off sale items promo ended last night so this new batch of sale cuts won't get that extra discount.  I didn't find anything I needed during the promo, but a few items off my wish list managed to make it to sale this morning, which I'm super excited about!  I picked up these cute tops:




Apparently I'm in a floral mood today. =)

All three are great fall transitional pieces and can be layered galore so they'll fit perfectly into my closet.  Now I'm just crossing my fingers they all ship!  Did you pick anything up this morning?

Last Sunday I wore my Diamond Kite Dress to church.  As I was getting dressed I decided to amp up the color a little by throwing on a bright orange cardi over it.  I balanced out the bright orange with some mint green.  A little unexpected and a little fun...

A little color never hurt anyone, right?! =)

Have a great day!

    1. The colors in it are GORGEOUS! It's the one thing that still hasn't shipped from my order so I'm crossing my fingers it makes it!!

  3. That dress looks fantastic with the orange and mint colors - I can't wait to try something similar thanks to your inspiration! I ordered the Quoin top to try too, but missed out on the Mixed Bouquet in the petite sizes, I will have to be on the lookout if it pops back. I did grab the Pocketed Peasant Blouse and hope I can get it over my head, lol, saw it on the sales girls and loved it, but never tried it on so I'm hoping it works! Like you, I am holding my breath for a shipping confirmation - I hate that the new system is making things wonky with online orders!

  5. I picked up the parted rays blouse but it seems too long so I'll likely return it. Too bad, I love the style and colors. Your dress combo has inspired me as well. Thanks for all the great outfit ideas!
