OOTD + My "Top 10" Anthro Wishlist

The sun was out in full force today......finally! After a late night out at a local festival's beer tent last night, my hubby and I unfortunately got a late start to the day. We ran some errands and were able to enjoy the nice weather this afternoon though. I decided to wear the Eastpointe Garden top paired with a light weight burnt orange cardi to bring out the orange flowers in the top. I am SO glad I snatched this pretty top before it sold out. The print is wonderful and with all the colors in it, it can be paired with so much! I can't even count the number of times I've worn this since I bought it, which in my opinion makes it completely worth the full price of $58!
These pics were taken in the dressing room at Old Navy.  My hubby wanted to stop in to look around and ended up trying a bunch of stuff on.  I also grabbed a couple things to try, but didn't find anything great.  Instead, I snapped a few pics of my OOTD while I waited for him to finish up!  It's a rare occasion when I'm waiting around for him to finish up in a dressing room instead of the other way around...haha!

Cardigan: Ann Taylor LOFT
Blouse: Anthropologie Eastpointe Garden Top
Jeans: LOFT Outlet
Socks: Target
Shoes: Nicole Magical Flower Ballet Flats from Ruche

I've spent a lot of time looking over the new arrivals on Anthro's website this week!  In no particular order, here are my current top 10 Anthropologie wishlist items!

This is the exact same blouse as the Eastpointe Garden top that I'm wearing in my OOTD, except with a new name and new prints.  I'm digging the green print with polka dots, but it also comes in a pretty yellow with lemons print and a blue floral print.  This top is so great that I definitely plan to pick it up in another colorway soon.

This beautiful silk dress has been getting a lot of buzz in the blogging world.  Check it out on Molly here and Kim here - don't they look lovely (as always)?!  I know I saw a couple other bloggers in this dress, but now I can't remember who....sorry!  Anyway, this dress has everything I love.  Floral print, check.  Pretty green shade, check.  Smocking in the back to help get the perfect fit, check.  5 star reviews, check.  Plus, the price isn't too bad considering it's silk.  Something tells me this one may not make it to sale?  Can't wait to try this dress on next time I make it to the store!

I loved the Field Skirt from this past fall/winter and apparently this skirt is the same shape/fit, but with a whimsical flower/bird/butterfly print.  I adore it.  See Jacquelyn rock this skirt HERE.  Again, can't wait to see this one in person.  If the print is as cute as it looks online, I can see it being the perfect summer skirt and being an easy transition into fall with tights/boots.

This has been on my wish list for a while.  I have yet to see a blogger review this one, and I'm dying to see it on someone.  The reviews are mixed, so I'm holding out to see it in person.  Speaking of which, I really need to call my nearest store to see if they have it in.  The floral embroidery looks lovely and I also love the fact it's another pull-on style skirt.

I don't think these are actually new, but they never caught my eye before this they're brand new to my wishlist.  I actually first noticed them when Molly  paired them with the Verdant Slip Dress.  Love the color....what a perfect match.  They would go with a lot in my closet.  I'm hoping they'll hit sale soon since it looks like they've been around since at least January. 

Wow....this looks like a precious vintage piece.  I fell in love as soon as I saw the upclose of the stock photo.  Reviews sound promising too...they are handmade and one of a kind.  I am always looking for unique necklaces and it's rare one jumps out at me like this.  Maybe I'll save my pennies up for this darling.

I'm a handbag addict at heart and it's actually been awhile since I splurged on a handbag.  This may just be the one.  I've been looking for a leather handbag in a "not too bright" yellow shade for quite a while.  This one looks like the perfect shape, color, and size.  Plus, I love anything with tortoiseshell details, so the buckles make it even better.  I'm going to try to hold out for sale, but keep a close eye on the online supply just in case I have to pull the trigger.  

I have never worn, or even really even thought about wearing a maxi dress.  Now that they're in fashion, I'm dying to at least try one on.  I love this one the most.  The floral print is so romantic, I love the ribbon and ruffles details along the bottom, and I adore the navy/pink color combo!  The big thing I dislike is the price!  WAY out of budget, but you'd better believe I'm going to stalk it for sale and pray it may make it to 2nd or 3rd cuts!!  Haha.

This looks like a comfortable and unique tank for summer.  The colorful sequined detailing looks gorgeous, the material looks comfortable, and I love that the base is a neutral light brown.  Holding out for sale.

This has been on my radar for a while.  I even tried it on in store last month.  I've already decided that I need the teal version to wear with my Shirt the Issue Dress and new teal pumps (reviewed here).  I want to wear this outfit to my friend's informal wedding reception in June, so I'm hoping it'll make sale before then!

So there you have it..... my current Anthro top 10.  Which Anthro pieces are tops on your wishlist??!


  1. I also want the Anthology bag but will hold out for sale. There are a ton in stock so it may be a while but I can be patient.

  2. I really want these shoes for my wedding! I have searched everywhere! PLEASE let me know if you know where I can find them! I HAVE to have these shoes! I'm also a MI girl :)

  3. If yours are my size I will buy them from you! I can't express how much I want these!

  4. I got the shoes from last fall, so I'm not sure if they are available anymore. I really like them and wear them a lot, so I'm not really sure if I'd be willing to sell them. What size do you wear?

  5. Oh, I wear a 10. I have a suggestion for you though.....have you ever visited If not, you need to asap. I was addicted to it while I was planning my wedding. I bet you could find shoe clips that resemble the flowers on these flats. If not, then you can find a seller who makes shoe clips or felt flowers, send them a picture, and they can handmake a very similar design. Then all you would have to do is buy a pair of brown flats! I guarantee you could end up with a nearly identical pair of flats this way! Let me know if you have any questions! Good luck!
