Welcome to the blog...
This space is all about seeking
EXCITED CHILLS and creating a
simple, authentic, beautiful life.
I do hope you'll stay a while!
Oh, I love January with its built-in fresh start! I always welcome the opportunity to begin again (except moments ago, when my laptop decided to erase the first few paragraphs of this post;-). Retailers everywhere are following the old adage, "Out with the old, in with the new". Post-holiday sales are clearing away last season's merchandise and making space for what's to come.
It’s been a while since I rolled out my Anthropologie favorites. It’s crazy how the January arrivals send a definite vibe of spring. I tried to pick pieces that were wearable no matter what this month feels like in your town. For me, one day it's 70 degrees and the next day it's snowing. Go figure!
While stores might look a little bare right now, hang tight. There are amazing pieces coming in almost daily.
I believe I need to make a solid plan for my wardrobe...
Or I'll surely be tempted to go overboard! Especially with conversation tees!
Here's what I have my eye on currently...
Positive Living Graphic Tee $68
I have no shame in my love of graphic, conversation tees.
And, if they're in French (lots of them on the Anthro website)? I'm a complete pushover.
It was hard to pick just one to feature, but this message won first place!
Lorena Flutter-Sleeve Pullover $98
This sweater is incredible. The lines are chic and sophisticated. The fabric is weighty and soft.
It also comes in dark grey. I've had several clients buy it in both colors. It's that good.
Embroidered Boyfriend Utility Pants $128
These pants are perfect for a mind that's thinking spring and a forecast that's not quite there yet.
They'd be fab with booties or sneakers. Pair with a chunky sweater now and a blouse or tee later.
Tamera Wrap Dress $128
This metallic fabric is having a moment and it's easy to see why. It's super flattering on every skin tone. Soft and fluid. Hangs beautifully. This dress is a winner. Easy to dress up or down. Just as good with boots as it will be with sandals.
Barela Tie-Waist Top $58
I can't possibly look towards spring without considering new stripes! This top is a nice alternative to a classic Breton striped tee. The details are fresh... princess seams down the front and a tie at the hip. Flattering and effortless. Yes, please!
Kinston Wrap Top $68
Another fabric that's everywhere right now... this amazing matte jersey. So soft! I only see black on the website, but the Boulder Anthropologie has this top in a gorgeous muted red. Such a sexy upgrade from a basic long-sleeved tee.
Camo Joggers $118
My favorite camo pants are Sanctuary cargos from last year. These are the updated version with a comfy twist. We can't keep them in stock. So flattering and comfortable. I might need to grab these, too. You can't have too much green camo, right?
Rose Scissors $16
An odd addition, I know. Allow me to explain...
Ages ago, I had a beautiful pair of all metal scissors. After arranging some flowers, I tossed a bunch of garden clippings into thick woods behind my house and the scissors went with them! I searched many times, but never found them in the overgrown thicket. Fast forward to last week when I spied these beauties at the store. Love at first sight! And they fit into my new 'less waste' lifestyle since they have no plastic parts.
Glazed Indigo Pot $12-$36
I love these pots! Perfect for a little greenery to tide you over until spring arrives. Sturdy and lovely. And priced well. Can be used indoors and outdoors.
Colorado Vase $16-$32
How could I resist these? Especially since I live in Colorado! Such simple, modern shapes. Dreamy colors! I love the pedestal bowl... but I think I want them all.
I hope these finds help ease any winter blues you might be feeling. The days are growing longer. One minute at a time.
It's good to be back in this space. Thank you for being here with me.
