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!

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

  4. Marie: Thank you! I know Anthropologie is a huge obsession for some ;)

    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.

  6. Love the necklace color! Will definitely brighten up an outfit. The gold heart ring is just too cute.

  20. love all...!!!

  21. You can get a price adjustment - call them!

  22. 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!

  23. A: Thank you!!!

    Caitlin: Congrats, that's awesome! I hope you get it!
