Style Diary -- The Perfect Spring Outfit

Anthropologie is by far one of my favorite stores. I'm on the mailing list, and the daily e-mails to my personal account are both a blessing and a curse. Beautiful clothing (when it's on sale) is on its way with the click of a button. Never has there been a company that so clearly understands what it would be like to live inside my brain. However, Anthropologie constantly forces me to practice self-control if I intend to indulge in other luxuries such as eating and paying rent.

Its recently released "Finer Things" collection is exactly what I want this season -- the clothing includes all the delicate details I love to combine with more masculine pieces. Fortunately, I can purchase the Friendly Competition top (at full price!) without feeling that terrible ache in the bottom of my stomach, otherwise known as buyer's remorse.

What I'm Wearing
I'm pairing this with grey cargo pants and thin-strapped leather sandals, probably something in a brighter, jewel-toned color because I'm a big fan of one pop of color among neutral shades. 

Because the neckline is already so intricate, I'll skip a necklace and try adding a heavier bracelet or maybe even a vintage-looking gold men's watch.

Where to Buy
Price: $68

How would you wear this top? Post a comment!


  1. How bad do I want that top? Super duper bad. Thanks for rubbing it in, fashionista ;)

  2. Lacy told me about your blog, and I'm so glad she did! I am a total fashion dummy. I need people like you to tell me what to do!

    I haven't ever been to Anthropologie, but I've just spent 30 minutes clicking thru their site adding 10 things to my shopping cart wish list already. Looks like I'm going shopping this weekend! Wish me luck.
