Eye Candy: Effortless Anthro Reader Outfits

Monday, September 22, 2014

Alice of Trendy in Texas
Jeans: Hudson
Shoes: Seychelles 

Happy Monday everyone! And welcome to this supersized round of Reader Outfits, guaranteed to brighten up your weekday afternoon. This time we've got summer ease, fall transition and drool-worthy guitars. Every outfit is gorgeous and every community member looks amazing! Show them all some love in the comments, won't you?

BIG THANKS to all of this post's contributors!!!

On to the outfits...

Ssssh! Girls From Savoy is having a SECRET SALE!!!


The deal just keeps getting a little sweeter from Girls From Savoy. Now through September 30th their whole entire store is on sale!!! New Fall items. Sale items. Dresses...jeans...tops...anything your little heart desires on the Girls From Savoy website is 30% off with the code SECRETSALE. Select items have also been marked down...making this a real steal with the 30% off.

What are my picks you ask? So many to choose from. In dresses, this Tracy Reese frock would be perfection for holiday parties, I own and love this Mender by Girls From Savoy dress (see it on me here, this fall color palette is sweet too), this eyelet dress seems work-ready to me! I also love this figure-flattering Milly option.

J Brand jeans for under $100 before the code? Sign me up! Love the fit of both this mid-rise pair and this higher rise option. You'll also find popular Anthro brands like Mother among the jean options at incredibly fair prices.

Some other items I'm in love with right now...this gorgeous Rachel Comey blouse...the idea of pairing this Tibi top and skirt with each other and then also pairing each item with things already in my closet...this Tibi top also has my name all over it (love the beautiful color!!)...this gorgeous floral frock from Suno...this simple  yet fun jumper from Karen Walker that's now ridiculous, like Forever 21-level pricing.

Will you partake in this (now not-so-secret) sale?

Musings: Finding the fun in a new workout regimen thanks to ClassPass

Sunday, September 21, 2014


Note: Reader Outfits will run tomorrow afternoon!

Back in June I embarked on a new phase in my workout regimen: toning my body and muscles. Since starting a personalized weight loss program 2 years ago I've felt more alive and energetic than ever...and been having so much fun with life! (I was having fun before too...just a little more now.) I've gotten a ton of community requests to revisit what I've been up to physically so this post is all about what I've been doing...what's worked...what hasn't...and why fitness is a bonus to my life rather than the centerpiece of it.

Once my weight became stable at a level I was comfortable with and running started to be a bit boring I knew it was time to start including some more fitness options in my regimen. My options seemed so few though. I could join a gym for $$$ and try to figure out my own routine. I could take classes for $$ that would help me tone, but my budget wouldn't allow me to take more than 3-4 classes per month.

Enter ClassPass...the coolest workout program for city-dwellers ever...

Reviews: Embroidered Neoprene Shift, Apogeo Column Dress, Isabel Dress, Painted Plaid Dress

Hunting for the Painted Plaid Dress ($158) and finding success!

These days my stops to Anthro stores are fewer and further between...and when I do make it to the store I do a lot of walking around and not a lot of trying on. Recently I grabbed a few dresses that piqued my interest. How did they work out? Find out inside...

Anthropologie's newest catalogue is new yet familiar, plus registry is here!

Pull up a chair and get ready to dog-ear some pages.
Anthropologie's home catalogue is back!

You may have noticed the latest Anthropologie catalogue in your mailbox is a little different than most months...in that there are no clothes in it. What gives? Don't worry, it's not replacing your monthly dose of clothing pretty. It's supplementing it.

Everything old is a new again? After a several year absence, Anthropologie noticed that its home category is doing very well these days and has decided to give this somewhat unloved corner of the business some more attention. They've launched a beautiful new home catalogue...and created an online registry!
