As I have been reading all of your blogs from this past weekend, I can spot one giant commonality: What happened to the month of July? I can't believe how quickly the Summer is going by!

Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely weekend Readers. I certainly did =) I just wanted to show some goodies I picked up while doing some shopping. Luckily, my wallet didn't suffer too badly.

I made my first Anthropologie purchase! Can I just comment on how beautiful that store is? I know I'm behind the times, as many of you rave about Anthro but it was really my first time there! Upon entering, I was struck by the smell. It smelled like candles and flowers, two of my favorite things. I also loved the mix of clothing, furniture, books, and gorgeous jewelry like this:
***EDIT(8/3)*** Thank you to a reader for pointing out it is now on sale!
I read some pretty negative reviews online, mostly about the overall bulkiness of it, and how it doesn't lay flat against the skin. I have to completely disagree. I think this is really a beautiful statement piece, and it should be the focus of an outfit. I don't find it cumbersome at all. For the price, you definitely get what you pay for! I am in love with it and couldn't be happier with the color.

Also from Anthropologie, I got this sweet Ella Moss top with an Ikat print. I have been looking for something like this for awhile now and I love the fit of it. I think it will look great with shorts and gladiator sandals.


Aside from my first Anthropologie experience, there is a boutique by my work that was having a sale last week, so I bought this delicate little heart ring (resembling a pretzel, lol). I don't know the maker, but the saleslady told me that the line is based out of La Jolla (San Diego). My best friend used to work in La Jolla, so I instantly thought of her.
It's so light-weight, I can hardly feel it on my finger. LOVE!



Happy Monday!
♥ Noelle

P.S. The Rachel Zoe Project returns to Bravo tomorrow night for another season. *Happiness*

    ManoloChooLou: True, they will pair beautifully!

    Mimi: Thank you! I will have to go to Anthro a little more often now. It's a bit of a drive, but well worth it.

  5. You're way ahead of me heh. I have yet to make my first purchase at Anthro. The necklace is beautiful. Such a pretty color. It's definitely a statement necklace, and can pair with any neutral color tops.

  20. Everything that you got is beautiful! I don't know if you have Charlotte Russe's in Cali, but they have a necklace just like the one you got except it's turquoise. I almost bought it yesterday, but it looked way to big on me. The one you got looks a little smaller I think :) I actually met with the photographer for anthropologie last month, and may be getting an internship there soon shadowing their art director!
