Free People is getting in the Presidents' Day Weekend Spirit too!


Ahh, Free People knows how to send along a good deal! Now through Monday February 15th, take an extra 25% off their sale, both in-store and online. This is a great time to pick up some of those last days of winter goodies...or some spring stuff!

Picks? Yes, I have quite a few! Firstly as you're reading this post I'm probably wearing my taupe Brentwood Fringe Heels (now $100, all prices in this post are before the extra 25% off) around Cozumel on vacation with my guy. I love these sandals so much! And perhaps I'm also wearing my Fitted With Daisies Dress (now $70) too. I took a 39 in the sandals (I'm a 9) and a 6 in the dress, my usual size.

Some other items I own (though not in the sale colors) include the She's Got It Slip (now $50), which I sized up to a large in; the similar Daydream Bodycon Slip (now $70); the Fray II Pointelle Over the Knee Sock (now $20) and the Royal Rush Wrap Boot (now $300) which I took a 40 in. That's my usual Euro shoe size; I'm a 9 in USA sizing.

A couple of items I don't own that caught my eye for this promo include the Drenched in Sequins Mini Dress (now $100) which would be perfect for holiday parties later this year (I know, I know I'm thinking way ahead) and the Border Print Dropwaist Tunic (now $100).

Will you pick anything up during this promo? Feel free to use this post for open Anthropologie discussion as well -- don't forget they are running an extra 40% off sale promoUse the code EXTRA40 at checkout. Details here.

Distracting myself from snow with these Anthropologie accessory delights

Come to mama! Lien.Do's Morelia Heels ($140).

It's a beautiful scene of wet, white snow stuck to everything in sight this morning in NYC. Since I missed the blizzard my birthday weekend, this is such a delight to me! Safely indoors after a romp with Cinnamon in the snow I'm poring over more of Anthropologie's site, catching up on all the new goodies I've missed while I was in Costa Rica. This morning the newest accessories have grabbed me -- so many pretty things!

Let's pretend like it's 80 degrees out right now and discuss what we'd wear on our digits and toes, shall we?

Anthropologie's tiny, postcard-sized February 2016 catalogue


Check your mailboxes, and maybe double-check them, because if you're not on the lookout for it you could easily miss Anthropologie's February 2016 lookbook. This is no 100-page book. Instead, its form factor is more like a postcard that unfolds into a flipbook -- 6 pages, front and back to be exact. Hardly the catalogues of yore we're used to...



...the catalogue is about 3/4 the size of my iPad mini, and printed on stiff photo paper. It's adorable but doesn't exactly feel like a catalogue to me...



...and inside, well, there's a few cute looks but not much to see. Less than 8 pages of clothing, a two-page spread devoted to home...one page to a bag.

I get it, it's winter, and unless you're a winter baby like me you're probably hibernating. But come on! We're so eager to buy pretty transitional clothing. I guess Anthro decided a tease was the way to go this. But hey, at least you February Aquarians and Pisceans get a catalogue. Last month all we early Water Bearers and late Capricorns got was notta. Nothing at all!

More on the outfits from the lookbook in this post.
