It's Getting Hot, Hot, Hot

What I'm wearing:
*anthropologie Stamp Art Dress (similar here)
*Aldo Maune Suede Lace-up Wedges (similar here and here)
*Michael Kors Oversized Black Watch (similar here)
*David Yurman Cookie Necklace in Blue Topaz

It's too hot to wear anything! It is absolutely sweltering here in the city. My way of coping was to throw on a lightweight dress and keep it simple. No possible way I could throw a cardigan on, and big chunky jewelry would just get really sweaty. I didn't get a chance to take any good photos, so this quick snap is all you get, sorry.

I was excited to hear that there were tons of new markdowns at anthropologie! (Comprehensive lists can be seen at Effortless Anthropologie and Anthroholic.) Here are some a few that have caught my eye! I'm going to try to drop by a store later on this week to check out the new arrivals.

High Seas Dress (now $69.95)
This adorable We Love Vera dress is now on sale! I tried it on a couple of months ago but didn't want to pay full price for it, it is tempting me now! I love the nautical look and the dress is perfect for this hot summer we are having right now. (Sizing: Runs pretty big, the XS fit me perfectly.)

Catmint Dress (now $79.95)
This dress is perfect for a ladylike tea party! Or a picnic in the park.  I would probably replace the fabric tie belt with a different one. (Sizing, runs pretty true to size, my normal size 4 fit great.)

Ice Pop Earrings (now $19.95)
These nude dangly earrings are a refreshing alternative to big metallic ones. My little sister wore these to her prom with a royal blue dress and they looked fab with her long wavy hair. 

Love this colorful and festive necklace! I love the way it adds some fun sparkle to an otherwise plain dress. 


  1. Nice sale choices. I am pining over the catmint dress...

  2. I love your simple, cool look - you look lovely! And those earrings are so pretty - what a bargain!

  3. I love the dress and especially those shoes you have on! The Catmint Dress also looks really nice on you. And the necklace? Gorgeous!

  5. Your outfit today is adorable and perfect for the heat!
    I hope you got the Catmint Dress - it's perfection on you!

  6. You look great today and in all those pieces you tried on. Hope you decide on the High Seas dress - it looks great on you, and I LOVE it, but unfortunately I can't make it work.

  7. I love that dress on you!!! I totally ordered that necklace this morning... darn free shipping makes me do crazy things!

  8. You must tell what you found at the store today!

    Your dress looks perfect for beating the sweltering temps. I hate to complain about our 90's when you guys are a good 10 degrees higher! Yikes!

  9. That dress looks hot hot hot on you. Love the shoes! I always love all your outfits.
