Babergh Dress ($188)
This dress is absolutely lovely! The fit was fantastic (I am wearing a size 6) and I felt very lady-like in it. The scalloped jacquard skirt is my favorite part of the dress, felt substantial and lent some glamour to the dress. The top portion I thought was nice and simple to balance out the busier bottom. I think many other reviewers have mentioned it before, but the floral appliques on the shoulder seemed a little unnecessary. The dress doesn't really need them at all in my opinion.
Twinkle Twinkle Dress ($168)
I adore the fun star print on this green silk number. The shape of the dress is pretty flattering, thanks to the elastic waist, but I think that it would look even better belted. Love the dress but I'll pass on it for now, I don't think that I'd really get a ton of wear out of it. The neckline seems a little high and frumpy for me as well.
Dagmar Shirtdress ($148)
I didn't really think that I'd like this print when I saw it on the website, but in person the vibrant print definitely caught my eye and made me grab it to try it on. The cotton is crisp and pretty substantial, it would have made my wishlist if it hadn't been for the tight sleeves (hate that). I'm wearing my
Boucle De Souffle Jacket ($128)
anthropologie never disappoints me with their cute little jackets. This structured jacket would be a great topper over a number of different dresses. The material felt very nice, and I love the shape of the ruffles. This is definitely on my wishlist.
Terrace House Jacket ($138)
This jacket was a bit harder to photograph, the ruffles look much better when the arm that is taking the photo is down. I loved the mustard/pumpkin shade of the jacket, it had a very "fall" vibe to it. It's a little frilly but I think it would be a great topper over dresses as well. I am honestly not a huge blazer/jacket person (I usually prefer cardigans), but I love this!
Choose Your Path Cardi ($98)
anthro always comes out with great jersey cardigans every season, but this one is definitely one of my favorites. If I thought I really needed to add another cardigan to my closet I would have snapped this one up. I love the super soft jersey, and the pintucked details are lovely. The sleeves were a bit long on me though.
Dog Trot Cardigan ($128)
Ok, I love animal motifs, and I love puppies, this cardigan has to be mine! I think it's a little crazy dog-lady-esque, but I think I just need it in my closet. Unfortunately it was a little itchy, but nothing a tissue thin tee underneath won't solve. I do think I will feel a bit ridiculous wearing this in public, but I just think the scottie dogs are hilarious.
Flight of Fancy Top ($58)
I love bird motifs too, but I think this top looks much better in the stock photo and on the hanger than on me. Love the ivory color with the muted birds on it, but the ruffles are a bit too over the top for me (did I just say that?) and would lay funny layered underneath a cardigan.
