Dots & Stripes

How did I not notice the Chasia Dress ($178) earlier this summer?

Occasionally when I look through my wishlist I’ll notice a definite pattern. So far in August it’s clear my mind is on dots and stripes. Perhaps together. And why not? Right now Anthropologie has a bunch of pieces that are piquing my interest.

Take the Chasia Dress ($178) for example. How did I miss this dress when it was first released? Apparently the NYC Anthropologies have all already sold through their runs of this dress so I can’t try it on without buying it first (annoying) but I plan to take the plunge anyway. Not only does this seem like the perfect late summer date dress, it could also be dressed up for parties or special events. Yum!

Inside, tops with versatility and another dress I’m keen on buying…

Loving the jewel tones of the Linden Blouse ($78).

I do love these longer swingy tops — they tuck into a pencil skirt well for work, the sleeves can be cuffed above the elbow for waist definition or a blazer or cardigan can be added on top for additional shape. It’s mostly the dark garnet red of this top that’s drawing me in…expect to see lots of this beautiful color this fall!

Lots of little details help the Sanna Blouse ($98) stand out.

When Anthropologie is on their game they have tons of cute little tee shirts like this one. I love the little details that make this top special; the scalloped hem and the embellishments around the neckline. And of course the varying sizes of dots are fun too! I envision wearing this top mostly on the weekend but I think it could also work for a casual Friday in my office with a fun flouncy skirt and heels.

I foresee plenty of outfit opportunities for the Turtleneck Swing Tank ($58).

A nice, long layering tunic! This would be perfect underneath the faux-leather open-front cardigan I like from Banana Republic or under a moto jacket. Right now it’d be fine on its own too. Oh, the many, many styling possibilities for this top!

It’s quite possible that I like the Current Tank ($78) just because the model looks so badass.

Though I’d much prefer this top if the fit were sleeker and body-skimming, it’s pretty cool now as a looser drapey top too. Ah, the half-tuck. Will I ever be able to master it? I’m not sure…but this top makes me want to learn…

The Cutout Stripes Dress ($138) is at the top of my to-buy list.

Everything about this dress says ‘buy me’! Essentially a new version of the Textured Double-V Dress ($148) but $10 less expensive for some reason (no complaints from me!), I can’t get over how lovely lovely lovely this new pattern is! I need this in my life as soon as my spending account replenishes itself.

What are you eager to buy from Anthropologie right now? Anything new have you over the moon excited for the dog days of summer, or perhaps even fall?
