Shop: a cute dress with the right amount of special details

After a pretty awesome March set of new arrivals, Anthropologie is back to being strange for April. I’m just going to skip all the items that confuse me and instead talk about what I do like in the Anthropologie April new arrivals. Things will be easier this way!

First of all, there are several new dresses on my wishlist as of today. Above, the Lynmere Sheath Dress ($378) so pricey and yet so gorgeous. It has just the right amount of details and those stripes are divine! I could see this being absolutely lovely at my office. The yellow version of the Cleary Dress ($118) is also tempting for work. I love yellow dresses and denim jackets together — could this be the next in that combo series? Hard to say without trying it on.

Also, I’m loving the latest color of the Carissima Sheath ($258) which I thought was mint green but may be grey. Luckily, the Daisy Days Denim Dress ($398) is in fact minty green delight! More dress picks down in the shoppable boutique at the bottom of this post. I love my Bar Harbor Dress ($138) that I purchased last month! I can only hope these dresses are just as good.

Strangely, I find myself feeling as though Anthropologie has gone into my closet for inspiration and I can’t decide if I like that or not. Last year I admired a Rebecca Taylor sweater that had lace peeking out the bottom and back. Now Anthropologie has not one but two tops just like it this year. The latest, the Leila Eyelet Buttondown ($188) has a dress feeling to it thanks to its length. Or maybe a bustle feeling more appropriately! It and its predecessor the Emma Eyelet-Back Pullover ($118) are two attempts at the same idea. I wish Anthropologie would stop this — it’s overload. I’d rather they have one really good take on an idea than several so-so attempts.

Shop: the top (surprise! it’s actually a bodysuit.)

Elsewhere, some of the ideas that are working for me include a new indigo-stitched eyelet top, a tie-waist buttondown and a beautiful teal top. I may not yet be seeing much in terms of outfits but I am liking individual pieces ever more. When I picture these tops in my closet I imagine pairing them with jewelry like the lovely new Tallulah Drop Earrings ($44). They’d pair well the Spring Forward Front-Back Earrings ($48) too, an earring that I absolutely must have in the Anthropologie April new arrivals. They will rival last month’s favorite earrings, the Nicolette Front-Back Earrings ($44) in my jewelry box.

Speaking of accessories, they continue to slay. We’ve moved into full-on quirky for Spring/Summer and I’m embracing it fully. Items like the Mariana Mini Round Crossbody Bag ($128), the Andy Flamingo Clutch ($258) and the Flavia Bow Tote Bag ($498) make me giggle while totally appealing to me. On the less whimsical side, the Aleza Rancher ($215) is a fantastic hat that I want to wear all the time come Summer!

It’s time to check out all my picks from the Anthropologie April new arrivals. And let me know in the comments — what are your picks?

    First of all, I wanted to thank you for recommending American Eagle for jeans a while back. My daughter has been having a horrible time finding jeans that fit her properly, so we tried a few styles at AE and the super stretch legging jeans were perfect. She loves them, and they look great on her.

    Anthropologie is continuing to baffle me. I'm seeing a lot more cotton and silk, which is good, but along with it I'm also seeing a lot of $200, $300, $500+ price tags, which reinforces the message loud and clear that they are no longer interested in my business. The in-house brands have all but disappeared. Maeve seems to be the last man standing, and even that has gone way up in price.

    I've still got no must-haves on my wishlist. I like that "hat bag" that you pictured above, but as enormous as it is, it looks like anything you put in there would fall right out. . I kind of like these yoga pose earrings, but that's all that's got my interest right now. : https://www.anthropologie.com/shop/tree-pose-post

    Now, if you were talking Free People, then I'd be getting excited. My wish list there is bursting, and I've been asking myself how many Embroidered Fable dresses is reasonable for one person to own. 🙂

      Oh yay I'm so glad to hear that AE jeans worked well for your daughter! I have a few OOTDs coming up with them and I just love how soft and stretchy they are! I loved a pair of LOFT jeans in a kind of dark minty blue but they only came in a very straight cut; AE had very similar jeans that are curve-friendly so I dove right in.

      Yes the price points are a struggle. I can always remember Anthro having a few expensive things but never so much. Not only that, the $500 items aren't necessarily special enough to command that price.

      Free People yes! We'll have to talk about their new arrivals soon in a post.

        $78 T-shirts? The one with the zebra is really cute but no T-shirt is worth that much. (Saw that in the store just now.)

          I agree! And yet T by Alexander Wang sells them for $215 (not that I want to give Anthro any ideas!).

    I hear you Anthropolitan. There is some really nice new stuff but, for the most part, totally out of my price range. The new colour of the Carissima Sheath Dress by Byron Lars is stunning but I already own it in two colours so a third would be ridiculous. I still miss the vintage inspired quirky pieces which drew me in when I first started shopping at Anthro. I am willing to spend quite a bit on truly unique pieces but I am just not seeing them and haven't for quite some time. There is rarely anything that I feel is in the "must have" category and, if I look at it long enough, I am over it. There are a few pieces that I might consider buying on sale but they tend to stay on the floor for so long that they no longer appeal to me.

    I agree that Free People is killing it right now.

      Ok clearly I need a Free People post then! I will write one for this weekend.

        yay! Looking forward to it.

        and why is Free People killing it right now? Because they have not forgotten who they are and what they do best. Take note, Anthro!

    Anthro is back to the stupid photos again. Why is it so difficult to get a straight on photo of the item you're trying to sell?
