We all went shopping yesterday and I found some adorable stuff that I can't wait to show you!
I definitely need some tops for fall. Last fall, I was very pregnant, and then had a post-partum belly for most of the season. The fall before that, I was working in an office, so needless to say, my wardrobe needs have drastically changed over the past couple of years.
I found a few tops today, but I think I'll need more before fall and winter are here. I seem to never realize what I need until I'm standing in my closet, staring at the few options that I constantly rotate. Tops are so challenging for me. I want to be comfortable enough to crawl around and play with Audrey, yet still look put together when we are out and about, and I need to be able to breastfeed easily in whatever top I'm wearing. I think these tops meet all of my criteria and on top of that, I adore them! Let me know what you guys think...
This was on sale for $39.95 and I got it in the XS. I love that it's long enough to wear with leggings (a wardrobe staple of mine), and the cowlneck can be pulled down easily for breastfeeding without ruining the shirt. I think it's great for the warm weather now, but will transition nicely into fall with the addition of a cute cardigan...and the lace applique on the shoulder is too cute! Andrea bought this top too! I should have taken a twin picture for you!
I didn't end up purchasing this top, but it was also on sale for $39.95. I liked it a lot, but this was the size small, and it was too big. There was no XS available in my store, but it looks like they do have some online if you're interested. It's hard to tell, but the sides of the shirt are lace...so cute!
This is by far my favorite find of the day! Bryan actually spotted it and I'm so glad he did! I'm in love with the burnt orange lace with the charcoal gray stripes. This one will have to be pulled up to feed Audrey, so it's not as convenient (I always prefer to pull my shirts down rather than up), but I think the fabric is stretchy enough that it will keep its shape. I just could not walk away from this one, even at full price. I think it will be so cute with skinny jeans tucked into brown boots for fall. I bought this one in the XS. It looks like the XL is only size available online right now.
I seriously cannot find this cardigan online! I'll keep looking though...
It's heather brown with an ivory chiffon ruffle on one side and asymmetrical buttons. It's lightweight and so comfortable. I think I'll get a lot of use out of this even now and in the spring. I got the XS.
Anthropologie is not one of my go-to stores. It's pricey, and I don't always love everything they have, but I was so happy with my finds today. I saw so many more things that I loved, but wouldn't even allow myself to try on because of the price! This shopping trip has definitely made me want to go in more often! Maybe that's a bad thing!
(Imagine these pants with a different top!). Here, I'm trying on the heather charcoal pixie pant in a 00R. I was just trying these on for size, but I'm going to order the 00S in black. The regular length isn't terrible, but they bunch up too much for my liking. I would recommend sizing down in these. I'm not usually a 00, but I felt like these fit perfectly. They're meant to be very tight, so you don't want any extra fabric that could look baggy or bunchy. These are a heavier stretchy fabric that I think will be awesome in fall and winter. They have a cute zipper detail in the back that makes them feel just a little fancier than leggings, but still just as comfortable. I think these will easily become a go-to pant for me over the fall and winter. I'll let you know how the short fits once I have them in hand!
I didn't end up buying these, but here are my thoughts on fit for anyone interested. This was the 25 and they fit me really well, aside from the fact that I didn't think they were tight enough around and behind my knees. Maybe that's just the way they are cut, but they felt baggier than my Ankle Stretch Jeans in Dyed Twill (also here) which I have in a size 24, so keep in mind that although the pants are extremely similar, the fit is very different!
Have you done any shopping lately...especially with fall in mind? Let me know what you've bought! Also, I'm on the lookout for some tank tops to wear under cardigans as well as skinny ankle-length jeans. Let me know if you have any good recommendations!
