it's been a busy week. i can't believe it's thursday! the post for yesterday never happened:( it's written but the photos never got uploaded so hopefully i can do that at some point today. at some point in my shopping binge i made my way over to anthropologie. i was actually looking for a specific skirt to try on but they didn't have it in stock yet so i spent some time browsing the sale section. i've been looking for a lovely yellow frock and i'd seen this one online but i was shocked to find one left in the store in my size..a gift from the shopping i have mixed feelings on sweater dresses. i love them on other people but i've never found one that looked that great on me. i love that this has the softness of a sweater dress with out all the cling. this outfit was inspired by the recent fall ad campaign for kate spade so i knew i was going to wear red tights. i opted for the leopard print shoes because (1) i'm trying to break them in before the concert on saturday night and (2)the made the look a little funkier than a solid black or metallic shoe might. i have fallen hard for the look of a cinched waist. this faux leather bow belt is a little bit tough and a little girly all at the same time. i found the belt and the scarf while taking my daughters shopping for their homecoming outfits. i can't tell you how much i adore this coat from br. i can't remember how long i've had it (5 yrs?) but it is one of my favorites. the shape is kind of 50s/60s but the print is modern.
