Sale day and a date night OOTD!

Good morning ladies! Happy sale day! Another round of markdowns this morning at Anthro makes me a happy camper! I picked up a few items I've been lusting after for while now...the Liquid Acres Skirt, the Tokonoma top and the Paradise Ascending Top. There's a few more items I'd love to pick up but I may hold off till second cuts...we'll see. I always hate the wait, but getting a item you really want (that you don't think will sell out) for a better price always feels more rewarding to me in the end. But again, really, I hate the wait!!! I'll be heading to Anthro this weekend with friends so we'll see what I find. Did you pick anything up this morning off your wish list??

This past weekend hubby and I were able to squeeze in a date night and meet up with some friends for dinner in Napa. I always love a good reason to get dressed up! I pulled out my new Cabomba Blouse I scored on sale a few weeks ago and paired it with some fierce heels for the occasion....and away we went!

The set:

I snapped this picture around 9:30pm in the mirror at Gott's where we all stopped for milkshakes after dinner, so it's not the best lighting, but you get the idea! I love this top...so colorful and fun!

So has anyone else seen previews of the November Anthro releases/catalog? Images are starting to float around and I have to say, I like what I see! I am particularly obsessed with these:

Tegu Platforms

Oh, be still my heart! I know what Santa is bringing me this year! These will be mine. =)

I'm off to get my day going. Lots to do today...I've been on an organizing binge the past few days. It feels great to get rid of stuff we no longer need or want to move next summer. Little by little I plan to go through the whole house so I'm not faced with such a huge job come July. It's so much work!

Hope you all have a great day!


  1. Your date night outfit is perfection. The new shoes are super cute im still trying to get the lacerta mjs.

  2. I love that top and the belt is perfection:-) The shoes also rock...great outfit all around. Do you know where you're going in July yet?

  3. Nina--thanks! Hope you get your shoes soon!

    Kara--you're so sweet! No, we don't know where we're going yet...won't find out until March or April. That's the military for ya! =)

  4. Loving the Paradise Ascending top as well. However, do you think it would look good with a cardi? I live in Utah, and the cold weather has begun. I need to stay warm. :)

  5. You look fabulous! I need to try belting my Cabomba. I picked up the Bookbinders that have been on my wishlist for EVER. The reviews indicate some fit issues, so I'm hoping they work out. We'll see!

  6. Mindie--I didn't try it on with a cardigan but I noticed one of the product shots on the site has the girl wearing it with a greay cardi and it looks ok! I think it may look better with an open cardi...one without buttons.

    M--ahh, thanks! Hope the shoes fit!!!

  7. What a fun outfit for a date night out with your man! Mmmmmm...a milkshake sounds delish right now! :) I can tell it is getting close to supper time!

  8. The belt added to that shirt is the perfect touch...so flattering on you!

  9. I love this top and it looks great with the Double Torsade Necklace!!!

  10. Love that date outfit, that top looks super cute belted! And those shoes are so cute, another pair of Anthro shoes to add to my already too long wishlist!

  11. Leah--thanks! And I'm up for a milkshake no matter what time of day it is! =)

    Tara--thanks! I thought a belt might jazz it up a bit.

    Kelly--Thanks so much!

    Jessica--Oh my gosh, I know what you mean. I have a wish list a mile long!!

  12. I always love your outfits! :) They are so inspirational for me! Thanks for all the great ideas. Don't you just love the shoes? When I saw the November catalog yesterday, that is definitely my favorite item. They use it in so many outfit sets too so I think it's going to be pretty popular. Do you think you'll buy them when they come out or wait for sale?

  13. Such a cute outfit, Jenni. I think the heels are perfect for it. And it sounds like you had a fantastic date night!

  14. Wow, you look beautiful! Great top :)
