I heart Anthropologie

This past week I have been mourning the loss of my ability to wear about 80% of my wardrobe. Before I had Grace I was definitely a fashion-lovin', shopping-a-little-too-much kind of gal, but once I had her most of that came to a halt and I became bitten by the children's fashion bug. After all, with kids, you don't have the "I look fat in that" to worry about :)

Nonetheless, after asking Lance to bring down the bins of maternity clothes from the attic, I started daydreaming about all the cute spring clothes that I wouldn't get to wear. Spring shopping is one of my favorites because everything is so airy and sweet, vintagey florals, linen sundresses, bright straw bags, the cutest spring pumps and strappy sandals, colorful bangles and dainty necklaces....ahhh, I love it all!

I know, I know what they say, "maternity clothes have come a long way". Yes, it's true, but it's still not the same. Plus it's hard to justify the expenditures when you only get to wear them for a couple of months at best.

So to make myself feel a little better, I grabbed a cup of hot cocoa and did a little window shopping from my fave store - Anthropologie, of course!

Starflower Cardigan - I know what you're thinking, "you like THAT", but yes, I do! I love that it makes me think of when my grandma was in her 20's (she was very stylish) with the crochet-like fabric, elbow length and those flowers adorning the collar. Secret Joy Dress - hmmm...maybe I could make this one work, belly and all, by having it tailored to fit like an empire waist Colorblock Heels - shoes! love that shoes fit no matter what! Bobbin Bunch Necklace - makes me think of our honeymoon in Tahiti...aaaah, those carefree days! Ease and Glee Sweatercoat - what can I say, I think I'm in love with orange...and yellow...and sky blue :) A girl can dream, can't she?
