Since re-joining the blog scene, I’ve struggled with two things- how to create new content without spending a million dollars, and how to make it easier for all of you to access what I post. (My RewardStyle/Like To Know It membership was shockingly revoked after a solid two years of not blogging.) I’m not sure how all you ladies feel about dressing room snaps, but I’ve always found them to be really helpful in showing how something truly looks. It’s hard to hide anything under those florescent lights.
I stopped by the new Anthropologie in the West Loop today on the last day of their Anthro Day sale (aka 20% off everything for Anthro members). Sigh. Guys, if only I could afford to shop at Anthro on a regular basis. Their spring tops are so good right now. I shared some of my favorites on my Instastories, and I’m including the pictures below. (Also, it’s pretty clear I’m a newbie as I forgot to save the photos before adding my fancy Insta-text. Hello, I’m great at technology!)
This top is something I’d want to throw on everyday. Size up! I’m usually an L-XL, and this is a medium.
Okay I lied- this is what I’d wear everyday. I am obsessed with sweatshirts, and I will not apologize.
The embroidery on here is just so good. It would be perfect alone in the summer or layered underneath cardigans and jackets until temperatures allow!
I’m not necessarily into tons of jewelry, but stick some gems on a blouse and I. Am. Sold.
I don’t usually go for patterns this bold, but this top is so fun! If only it was a little looser on my chest. Sad face.
This last post was in regard to my favorite shopping strategy- put everything you’re eyeing into an online cart and check back periodically until it goes on sale. It’s pretty rare that something truly sells out somewhere, and every store has to put their inventory on sale when new stuff comes in. I fell in love with the top above about a month ago, but I definitely wasn’t paying $88 for it. When I went into Anthro today, it was marked down to $49! An added bonus- if you take the time to check back, you know you really love it.
Now onto the second issue I mentioned above- I added a tab in the upper left hand corner of my blog that says “Shop My Instagram.” Everything you see on my Instagram or Instastories will be updated there with direct links to every item. I’m still hoping to redeem my tattered blogging reputation and earn back that RewardStyle privilege, but this will have to do for now.
I’ve linked all the items below as well for easy access!
