Happy Monday! I couldn’t be more excited to be kicking off a special series with one of my favorite brands, Anthropologie! I’ve always believed that getting dressed and shopping should be a fun and exciting experience for everyone. Personally, it brings me a lot of joy and I find myself drawn to places and lines that make that experience extra fun – and a key factor in that is how things fit!
If you’ve been following for a while and were around for my time in Chicago you may have seen that last summer I co-hosted a summer fashion show with Anthropologie and highlighted some of my favorite petite pieces. It was an absolute blast and ever since the launch of the petite offering in-stores and online I’ve been hooked!
It’s the little things that make a piece irresistible and impossible to walk away from without bringing home – the lace detail in the back, the small open back, or delicate embroidery. The same goes for that little pinch at the waist, the few inches off of the length and where a top falls on your waist.
This summer I’ve been all about key pieces with interesting accents or details. This gingham tie back top was one of my favorites and this striped sweater caught my eye for the exact same reason. At first glance it seems like a pretty striped staple, but you turn it around and are completely caught off guard at the back’s detail in the best way.
You guys already know this about me, but my weekends are extra casual – especially in the summertime. It’s been a whirlwind of fun and I’ve been living in these cutoff shorts and sandals, keeping it easy and comfortable for nights that end in putt-putt on the pier or rooftop drinks and a long walk home.
I’m not ready for summer to be over, but thankfully have a ton of exciting events coming up before it’s officially fall in my eyes! So stay tuned this week as we bring you some outfit inspiration and ideas for what to wear for every occasion and my favorite petite picks!
And to make this Monday & week even more exciting as summer winds down, Anthropologie and I are giving away a $300 gift card to one lucky reader to kick-start their fall wardrobe! Details on how to enter below :), the giveaway will end on Friday at midnight EST so get to it!
