Happy Thursday friends! Excited for today’s post! Ellie and I went shopping. We had a good reason. Not that we need a good reason, but this time we had one.
(a long time favorite quote of mine) :)
El had worked hard to earn some money and knew what she wanted. March is my birthday month and I knew what I wanted. Not our best pic above, but we only had time to take one because we were busy hitting our favorite stores. One of my all time favorites? Anthropologie. When I say that name do you immediately smell the Anthro smell? If not, you need their candle. :)
Volcano (Capri Blue) is the smell of their store and I’m obsessed with it. (First picked it up at our Favorites Party 2014.)
Aside from the smell, I adore everything they sell. I could get lost in that store for hours! I don’t buy clothes from Anthro often because they are pricey, but every once in a while (like during my b-day month – yea!) I splurge on a few favorites. I also shop their on-line sales from time to time and have found some really fun things marked down. Last summer I took you all shopping with me to World Market (another favorite of mine) and today we are all shopping together at Antrho! Go ahead. Cheer with me now. :) Excited to show you some of my current favorites from this beloved store!
These are the three clothing items I walked away with. I can’t find the striped top on-line (leave it to me to find the one striped item in the store) but here are the other two I fell in love with…
K. I know you might be looking at this navy utility jumpsuit thinking huh? But I thought it looked kinda fun so I tried it on. And that’s when I fell in love. It has such a great fit! Really cute. It’s different from my norm and I love that. I’ll show you a pic with it on soon. It’s just fun. I love it with my peep toe booties.
I also fell in love with this cute Chevron pullover sweater. Love the material. It’s on the short side and I like it best over another shirt. I’ll snap a pic and show you how I’m going to wear it soon.
I didn’t buy these coral Chino Capris but they are on my wish list! SO cute for Spring! I love this color with my new chevron sweater.
The Chino capris are new in for Spring and come in lots of colors. My other favorite is the mint. So cute with the black and white striped top! I happen to have a few of those. :) I also tried on and loved this cute white tie front button down blouse. Maybe next trip! I can only do so much damage in this store at one time or my husband won’t let me go back. #truth #thatwouldbedevastating
Another Anthropologie favorite of mine? Their towels. LOVE them. They are huge and so soft and the patterns are gorgeous. I have had my eye on these two patterns for a while now and finally bought them. You’ll see how I’m decorating with them soon! They are so pretty they need to be displayed. ;) (Coral Towels – Malvina Collection/Grey Towels – Marigold Collection)
Fun finds this trip!
Two other things I have in my on-line cart that are on sale..
This cute diamond leather belt. And I love these cuff bracelets.
Anyone remember this? My long time readers. :) It’s from my kitchen in my last house. I’ve always loved Anthro dishtowels! Such a fun way to add some color and whimsy to your kitchen.
This one is a favorite that I know will come home with me at some point.
Anthropologie bowls have always been a staple at my house too. I love to decorate with them.
Their latte bowls are my very favorite. I have several of the colors. They are the perfect size and I like the solid color for decorating. The indents give them some dimension and style.
Here’s another flashback from my previous house. Wow! Is that blue bright enough!? Ha! Still love aqua but I toned it down a bit in the new house. ;) Most of the things on this shelf are from Anthro. Their Monogramed Mugs are another staple around my house. All of their coffee mugs and teacups are so beautiful and such a fun way to add life to open shelving.
I also use their latte bowls to organize things!
I think I need them in coral. They even come with Cheerios. Although we have enough of those all over my kitchen floor on a daily basis..
I have a few bowls in the Gloriosa collection and LOVE them. I’d love the whole set. Also the serve ware! Too much fun.
Excited to show you an upcoming little project that my Anthro nut bowls were perfect for! Not for nuts. :)
Last one from the archives. Promise. :) Anthro aprons might be one of my all time favorite things from their store. Which is especially amusing since I hate cooking. :) But I’ve given them so many times as gifts for friends who do like to cook. For those of us who aren’t feeling it so much? They make darling kitchen decor!
So many cute aprons but this one and this one are my current personal favs.
My sister knows how much I love Anthro kitchen decor and gave me a rolling pin for Christmas one year. So cute to display! My mom bought me a real rolling pin. Who’s gift gets used more? ;)
Love this one.
I recently shared my decorated office/craft room and proclaimed my love for Anthro hardware. I’m trying to come up with a fun way to use these Whimsy Monogramed Hooks simply because they are too adorable to not have in my house!
I always check out the pillows at Anthro when I’m in their store. Sometimes they get a little wild for my taste, but the Full Sun Pillows and their Folding Fans Pillows are right up my alley. So cute for Spring!
This cute hand towel is in my on-line cart and this Barr-Co hand soap and lotion came home with me for my upstairs laundry room. (Almost done decorating that space!)
Have you all seen this Watercolor Peony wallpaper all over blog land and Pinterest? So many of my friends have used it in their homes and I adore it! Anthro has beautiful wallpaper. A little pricey, but sometimes you can just do one statement wall or a small space (like I did in my powder bathroom) to make a statement.
A few other fun items I have my eye on..
Alice in Wonderland is my all time favorite so I know this fun and whimsical calendar will belong to me. It’s just a matter of time. :)
And this pretty grocery and meal planner!? It seriously makes my heart beat faster. I bet I’d be better at meal planning if I could do it on this notepad. Anyone else with me on this? Did you know Anthro has an entire section on-line dedicated to organizing and storage!? It’s obviously my favorite place to hang out. :)
They even have my favorite planner in stock! (Read this post for planner details.)
And they have darling notepads. Just sayin’… :) I’m going to have to start giving out my notepads as gifts because I’m starting to become a bit of a notepad hoarder. But these are adorable and someone needs to own them. If none of you volunteer that someone might have to be me.
More fun office supplies. Mint love!
And I’ll end with one last favorite. These You and Me bookends are so fun for a master bedroom! Or anywhere else for that matter. You might see them pop up in my home at some point. Probably. Most likely. Ok.. I’m buying them now. ;)
As you can see I adore Anthropologie! I know most of you who have been reading for a while know that. It’s such a fun store. Even if your style isn’t quite as bohemian as Anthro tends to be, you can still add so many of their accessories for fun pops of color and whimsy.
I had fun shopping with you all today! I’d love to hear.. do you all feel the same way I do about Anthropologie? Do you buy their clothes or home items more? Anyone else intoxicated by the smell alone? Or is it just me?
I can live with that.
