Anthropologie... without the Anthropologie
dress - Target, cardigan - Winners, necklace - Anthropologie, tights - Old Navy, belt - H&M, boots - Frye
One of my goals that is always in the back of my mind when shopping, is to try and discover Anthropologie-esque pieces without the hefty price tag. I was in such a funk over the stress that I've been feeling lately, that I decided to make a quick shopping trip last week over my lunch. (Yes, I know that stress shopping is NOT a good thing and that I should find other activities to relieve my stress. But I enjoy shopping, it does make me feel better... and hey, it's cheaper than therapy right?)
Since I've spent most of my February budget, I decided to make a quick run to Winners. Winners is the closet Canadian equivalent to a TJ Maxx or Marshalls, so if I'm in the right mood to dig through the racks, my jaunts are usually cheap and satisfying. The quick trip turned up a few inexpensive goodies including this sweet, ruffly, cropped cardigan which inspired this Anthropologie without the Anthropologie(*) outfit.
* So maybe I lied. The necklace is from Anthropologie, but everything else is not. Promise!
