Cascading Foliage

What I'm wearing:
*Anna Sui for anthropologie Cascading Foliage Dress (similar here and here)
*anthropologie Curlytop Cardigan in Ivory (similar here and here)
*Guess Nude Patent Slingbacks (similar here and here)
*Michael Kors Skorpios Ring Tote in Chestnut (similar here and here)

The Curlytop Cardigan is just the most perfect topper for spring. It instantly makes any outfit with a dress more fun, with its cute ruffles and darling detail. I think its more interesting than the simple solids that I normally reach for. It is also lightweight enough to be comfortable when its warm out, but gives just the perfect amount of warmth. I thought that the Cascading Foliage Dress looked just a bit "meh" when I tried it on with a solid merino v-neck cardigan, even with a belt, and the Curlytop just made it more fresh and fun. (For sizing reference, I am wearing a Small in the cardigan.)

How gorgeous is the Skorpios Ring Tote? I have my sister to thank for this one, and I am obsessed! I don't really have any bags in this shape, and with the shoulder strap (that is tucked in for this photo) I find it extremely versatile. I think it can look both professional and casual, and the leather is absolutely to die for. I have a feeling you will be seeing this a lot on my blog! (I'm trying to be better about switching my bags around, and including them in my outfit photos.)

P.S. My Liberty of London for Target Giveaway is still on! You have until Wednesday night!


  1. What a lovely ensemble! I wish it was less rainy here so I could consider open toes.

    I am curious if you are going to go to the huge anthro sale tomorrow, and if so what is on your wishlist?

  2. Jesspgh,
    I've been so bad with anthro lately, I'm not sure what I'd want from the sale! I may go to anthro if I have time tomorrow, but I won't beat myself up for it if I can't make it.

  3. You really make this dress pretty Rosa and topped with the cardi is perfect! They're great together!

  4. I love this together! That cardi is never something I would think to put with that dress but it's fabulous together :)

  5. This outfit is so perfect, from head to toe! I love that you incorporated the shades in your outfit into the shoes and bag.

  6. You look BEAUTIFUL! I think you're absolutely right in choosing that cardigan to top your dress, it looks just so fresh and gorgeous! The shoes are to die for too! I just want to raid your closet, haha!

  7. I love what you did to this dress--so perfect for spring now!

  8. These pieces are gorgeous on you, and I love that bag!
