Happy daylight savings time!
Sunday morning was *rough* but I do love the longer days of sunshine that lay ahead of us! They always make me feel like I can get more accomplished during the day.
One thing that helped me jump out of bed Sunday morning was the date I had set with my dear friend, Lora. Lora was invited to a special event at Anthropologie, where we’d get to shop and sip mimosas prior to their normal open hours. Shopping? Mimosas? Sign me up!
We were welcomed at the door with a smiling face of one of the store associates, who also served as our personal stylist for the day. In the dressing room area we were greeted with mimosas and lovely madeleine cookies.
There was also a rack set up with current pieces that are trending for spring.
With mimosa in hand we began to scour the floor for our favorite spring fashions. What I love about Anthropologie is the versatility and timelessness of their clothes. You can easily dress most of their items up or down. And an item you buy today will look just as pristine a few years from now. Truthfully my wallet always takes a small gasp at the sight of their price tags…however, I know when I buy something from Anthropologie I know I will get a lot of wear and use out of it. And that is worth the price! Plus, they always have a great sale going on in the back! If you’re looking to stock up on some lightweight long sleeved tops or sweaters for the next cold front, head over there now!
Time to try on!
I really liked this black dress. It was simple, fun and flirty. I can totally see dressing this up with a cute pair of heels and a statement necklace.
I love my curves, but still have some trouble fully embracing them sometimes. I prefer fit and flare skirts and dresses, but Lora convinced me to try this skirt on. I loved it! It was so comfortable and you can easily pair it with a variety of different colored tops.
This was my favorite top of the day. Loved the detail and the color.
Loved this top too!
This top comes in a variety of colors and is SO soft. Seriously…I want to live in this shirt. The collar is a kind of satiny material so again you can dress this up or down. This is where our stylist helped out and showed me how I could pair this with a fun necklace or a funky scarf.
I saved the best for last. I loved everything about this dress. The style, the colors, the material. Love love love!
I highly recommend setting up a free session with a personal stylist. They can really help you find exactly what you’re looking for, how to enhance their pieces and more.
As we left we were given an adorable succulent to take home as a party favor.
Thanks for having us Anthropologie!
After our shopping excursion it was time for brunch! We headed down the street to one of our favorite places in Hyde Park, Piquant. Piquant is a charming French themed restaurant and they have a nice variety of breakfast and lunch items ranging from traditional omelets, sandwiches on fresh bread, salads, flatbreads and of course pastries.
Lora and I ended up sharing one of the brunch specials, a Brie and Pear Flatbread with Smoked Chicken. Delish!
After brunch I made a stop at Nordstrom’s at International Plaza to see my friend Ashley, who’s a fit specialist in the lingerie department. She helped me pick out something special for my friend Sam, who’s having her bachelorette party this coming weekend.
If you’re in need of a gift, or if you need something for YOU make sure to stop by and see my girl Ashley. She’s an excellent fitter and loves what she does!
