Fashion: Anthropologie in Black and White

I scan the Anthropologie site much too often. I enjoy the styling of the home items mostly, but I do get caught in the clothes, too. Honestly, I rarely buy anything from Anthropologie because the clothing styles are generally too boho for my day-to-day wear, but I still get sucked into the site, and lately, I spotted so many pretty black and white pieces that I think would fit seamlessly into my wardrobe (prices in USD).

striped tulle skirt, $168

shirt, $78

textured skirt, $168

sweater, $248

peplum top, $98

bikini top, $92   cover-up, $275

Pretty, right?

The Friday Five: Velvet for Home and Wardrobe

Velvet has been everywhere in the fashion world this fall, but I think we’ll also be seeing it invade some of our home designs on both a small and large scale. While some may opt for rich jewel tones when it comes to velvet, I would encourage you to also think about how creamy velvet can warm up and add luxury to your home and wardrobe.

Two for Tuesday: Scallops

Hello again dear readers! Welcome back! I hope you didn’t mind the break. I meant to come back to the blog yesterday and share news about Copenhagen, but I was having issues with my photos, so my posts remain in draft form at the moment. They’re not quite ready to be published. Thanks in advance for your patience and I battle jet-lag and get my life reorganized after by 2+ week holiday. (Tough life, I know.)

For today, since it’s Tuesday, I’ll share two they’re-so-much-alike items. And since it’s summer (my favourite season), and the beach is nearly always on my mind, I thought I’d bring some scallops to the web pages of White Cabana.

The Friday Five: White Hot at Anthropologie

The Anthropologie catalogue arrived last week, and it got me drooling! The store is so full of goodness. While not everything suits my style, I do appreciate Anthro’s overall aesthetic. And the pieces that I have picked out in the past for my home and wardrobe have definitely become some of my favourite items.

These five pieces have caught my summer-loving attention.
