Fresh Boutonniere

What I'm wearing:
*anthropologie Bold Boutonniere Dress (similar here and similar top here)
*J.Crew Merino Cardigan in Fresh Pine (similar here)
*Taryn Rose Flats in Black Patent (similar here)
*Rebecca Minkoff Matinee in Glazed Almond (different color here and similar here)

I absolutely love this dress and was so excited to be able to wear it again! This is definitely one of those dresses that was definitely worth every penny of it's full price tag. It looks great on it's own or you can coordinate it with pretty much any color cardigan and shoe. I thought this bright green was a bit refreshing.

*One of my readers (thanks Michelle Q) pointed out that Lily wore this dress on the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother. I actually watched it the other day and tweeted about it! I guess the dress was in the back of my mind after watching that so I reached for it today!)

Even though I'm on a no buy I couldn't help checking out anthropologie's new arrivals. I love the look of this season, lots of nautical references (I did buy the Arribada Current Dress and wish I bought the Sea's Epitome Shirt).

Lobsters??? I love it! This would be perfect for a 4th of July clambake or a relaxing day by the beach. I'm probably the only person that gets excited about crustacean prints. 

The pants I am indifferent towards (not my style) but this tank is so lovely! Of course I love the tiers, and I love the little flags all over. I would definitely wear this with my J Brand Skinny Cropped Jeans and a pair of fun heels. 

I absolutely love the color combination of this tank. Aqua + coral is definitely one of my favorite color combinations. I love it together with the Diamond Flame skirt as well. This look is just perfection to me!

This great yellow plaid number is made by Bluebird Shirting, just like my beloved Lean Lines Tunic. This is pretty much a sleeveless version of the tunic, which would be perfect for summer! If it's as long as the Lean Lines Tunic, shortie me could probably pull this off as a dress with flats. 

Those are my faves! I don't think these photos do these items any justice, I was meh about some of them until I zoomed in on the stock photo on the website. I can't wait until it gets warm enough to wear tanks and dresses like these.

*Also wanted to share that today is the last day for the eShakti contest! They have a great website and all of their items are fully customizable. For more information on the contest click here and download the entry form here!


  1. ha, you are not alone-- lobsters (and roosters, too) are my jam. I already have a lobster tee, but I missed out on the jcrew skirt + dress from a few years ago (I liked the prints, but not the styles), so I need to get this dress. I'd get anthro's rooster dress, too, if I could afford it. :)

  2. I love the dress paired with the green cardi! I am trying not to look at new arrivals.

  3. I love this dress with the color of the cardi! Fabulous! I saw one of the characters wearing this dress on How I Met Your Mother a couple of weeks ago and actually, I think you pull it off better.

  4. You style is awesome! I seriously have not disliked one outfit you have posted. Simply fab! BTW, all about that lobster dress!

  5. I just love that dress with GREEN! I would have never thought to pair it like that but it is perfectly springlike!

  6. Love the pop of green in today's outfit! I agree with turquoise22, I find something to love in every single one of your outfits.

  7. Love this outfit and the green is just divine and looks so good with the big flower!!!
    Great job on keeping up with your no-buy!!

  8. You look adorable. I would've never thought to wear the green cardi with that dress! Now I might have to try it.

  9. I love the shape of that bag.

  10. OMG I am obsessed with your matinee. More pictures of your purse collection pleasseeeee.

    All you lovely bloggers keep wearing this dress and I still have never worn mine! Maybe I need to pull it out or take it back. And random--what is the watch you are wearing?

  11. I never never never thought of wearing this dress with a green cardigan. I am DEFINITELY going to do so -- maybe even tomorrow!

  12. you look lovely, and the green! oh how i wish i bought that color when it was around...
