Thursday’s Fab Five

Happy Thursday!  Fall is in full swing, okay not really but, I’m speaking into existence…

…anyway, fall is here, yay!  D.C. has been hot all week, but apparently we’re getting cooler weather this weekend so, I’m here for it.

So, what have I been loving for the last couple of weeks?  Check it out below & leave me your favorites in the comments!

Yankee Candle in ‘Spiced Pumpkin’, $22

The totally quintessential fall candle, it smells like a pumpkin, and will fill your whole room with the scent of fall.  It’s not a sweet smell which I really appreciate too.  Bonus, it’s currently on sale through Macy’s, so make sure to click the link above to save some $$$.

Anthropologie Home Mini-Haul

When I was home for Easter weekend I had the pleasure of going shopping with my Mom, which of course meant stopping by our local Anthropologie- it’s just the best store on this planet.  
While I loveeee the clothing in Anthro, my main addiction is the kitchen/ dining section.  I’ve been growing an amazing collection of pieces (hehe, thanks Mom!) and I was able to add some more, from the sale section (!!!), while home that weekend.
Not sure what’s still available in store and/or online, but it’s worth checking out! 
First, I needed a new spoon rest because my dog jumped up on the stove and broke the super cute Pier 1 spoon rest I had…he’s so dangerous sometimes.  This Jardin Des Plantes ($8) one caught my eye- I love the white and blue, so French.
I love all stemware, I’ve started a pretty decent Anthro collection, so these gorgeous minty-green Cumulus Collection Champagne Flutes ($14) made their way into my basket.  They’re just so summery looking and pretty!! 
Side plates are fun, right?  When I have people over I always find myself needing pretty dishes to display appetizers on.  The Attingham Side Plate ($14) is simple and delivers a nice pop of color to the table.
Lastly, I purchased the Flowerpatch Measuring Cup ($24) for a friend.  Not only is it useful since it’s, well, a measuring cup, but it’s also a nice piece to display.  Even if you don’t want to use it as a measuring cup it’d be great as a small vase. 
I am an admitted #AnthroAddict, and I don’t care who knows.

Haul: Anthropologie

This past weekend I went to Anthropologie, it’s one of my favorite stores because they have the cutest clothes and household accessories.  I went shopping with my mom, and got a few things.  Hope you enjoy!  PS: I have yet to find a decent background for pictures, sorry, I’m still working on it!  
When I saw this dress, known as the Wayfarer Dress, I knew it would be perfect for my internship this coming semester.  When I tried it on, I was very impressed with how professional it looked, while still looking incredibly stylish.  I’m a tall girl, but the length is perfect on me, which is sometimes difficult for me to find!  The middle is a little too big, so I’ll need to get it taken in a bit, but the bottom half is perfect and super flattering.

Most of my shirts are sleeveless, and in the summer going into a restaurant can prove to be quite the chilling experience.  The air conditioning is full blast, but I still don’t want to wear a sweater, or necessarily something with sleeves.  I think this Circle Vest is super cute, the color, taupe, is perfect for matching any outfit, and (hopefully) it’ll take away the slight chill when indoors.  I like the design, and it’s slouchy frame.

I loved the style and fit of this shirt when I tired it on.  I know it’s simple, but I can dress it down with jean shorts or dress it up by tucking it in with black shorts for going out.  Adding a big chunky necklace will be great too, the coloring is perfect so I can choose either gold or silver jewelry.  Unfortunately, I can’t find this shirt online!  It wasn’t on sale, so I don’t know why I can’t find it…but check out the store if your interested!

I always find myself picking up a book in this store, when I saw The Gospel According to Coco Chanel I knew I had to have it.  Any book title with the words ‘gospel” and ‘Coco Chanel’ should be in any fashionista’s life.  While I haven’t started reading it yet, I know I’ll start it soon…I think it’ll be a perfect beach read.

While I was in Anthro I tried on a pair of AG Stevie Ankle jeans in sulfur plum.  Colored denim is taking over this summer.  Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Cameron Diaz has been seen rocking ROYGBIV via denim.  I love it, but I wasn’t sure I could pull it off…turns out I really liked the look!  I decided not to get them because I wasn’t 100% sold on the color, but I’m glad I tried them out and I’m happier I liked it!
