Anthropologie... without the Anthropologie


Outfit Details:

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!

Very Anthro indeed! What a fabulous mix of colors.

I love this! Definitely very Anthro. Best part of it all is you recreated it with a fraction of what Anthro would have cost :)

I often find "anthro-esque" finds at Target. Love this outfit.

I followed Sal's Lovely Links and am so glad I did - this outfit is smashing. I'm always looking for exciting new color combinations and this is just wonderful It makes me want to go home and see what I have that I could similarily combine.

Sigh, I live down in the south so wearing cowboy boots is really overdone here. Today I saw a girl wear gym shorts with a t-shirt and brown boots. OMG ew. You make the boots look so feminine and classy! I would have totally thought the outfit was by Anthro. You have a good eye for being able to pick out the good ones in the massive stacks of clothing!
