The Monday Feeling

In an effort to beat the Monday Feeling {and the cold}, I've opted to wear my favorite new shirt {okay, the sheerness was not a good idea when trying to beat the cold}. This piece of flowery awesomeness would be one of the few pre 30 for 30 purchases I made. See it's my birthday month and as such I received lots of little coupons from my favorite retailers. If anyone else out there has a February birthday you can probably relate to the statement I'm about to make. February is the worst shopping month EVER!


Between what's left over {and I mean left over} from the holiday's and the beginning of resort wear season, there really isn't much to shop for. But somewhere between the clearance rack and the pieces that are entirely too ridiculous to wear when snow is still on the ground, I found this lovely. And I had a coupon! Now while a coupon to Anthro doesn't save you much {pretty much it saved me tax}, I couldn't pass it up. Really what I'm doing is trying to rationalize spending more than I prefer on 1 top. But it's okay {I say for the tenth time), because I love it. No, I luuuurrrve it.

Pin It!

  5. Very cute outfit. I love big cowl-y scarves so much. I'm currently fighting a very annoying flu, and doubled up my AA circle scarf for warmth while out yesterday. Same effect, sooooo much fabric. I recommend it for a fellow scarf lover such as yourself.

  7. Love all the colors in this outfit and I can relate to both buying pre 30x30 clothing AND getting coupons and spending lots of money during your birthday month. Mine is in March right when the challenge is over:)

  9. You're totally right about February being an awful month for shopping. It's a weird weather month in general.

  12. You're right! February isn't the best of months for shopping. I'm glad you were able to snag that top! I love the colors and how great it goes with the brown belt.

  14. how do you manage to make monday look so cheerful and chic? and as usual, i'm jealous of your kate hudson-perfect hair--it always looks so bouncy and gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I refuse to believe you look like this on a Monday morning. And I'm with Tania on the Kate Hudson hair too!

    Love the scarf, love the shirt. If you love it, and you're going to wear it often, and you feel gorgeous in it--it's absolutely worth every penny. Especially for a birthday purchase!

  22. LIZ, this blouse is SO BEAUTIFUL and so are you!! I think it's the first time I've seen the blouse on its own and what a gorgeous cut it is in addition to the print. Yay, so excited for your almost birthday!

  25. So pretty, absolutely everything about the outfit and you and the scenery, so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha... I think the difference is that I love the crazy stuff left over... I live in Hamilton, On and sometimes the shoppers (this is especially at Winners/TJ Maxx) don't recognize the good name brands and are afraid of the crazy... this is where I swoop in.
    Great blouse though!

  27. ooooh such a pretty colored scarf. ANd I've never really thought about the February shopping thing... but i can see it now. I guess i don't do a lot of shopping around this time.

  41. I think this is a perfect Monday outfit to beat the blues. I love the flowey top. Anthro knows what they're doing, but why do they have to be so overpriced!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love the outfit!!!! Love the colors. You can look at February another way too. I like to shop in February because I catch a lot of truly clearanced winter items. I know they may not be trendy for next year, but I really just wear what I like anyway. Oh!!! yeah and plus I can least wear them for another two, two and half months if you live where I live. Happy outfiting!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow that top is gorgeous and your hair looks amazing, wish I had that kind of volume!

  47. Thanks Liz! Thick hair helps, but I promise it's lots of dry shampoo and back combing. Works like a charm.

  48. It's from a local boutique. I picked it up at a trunk show last year!

  49. Thannks Angeline! Wait to you see it untucked - it's pretty much a dress!

  50. you're taking the words right out of my mouth!

  51. You should trademark the phrase "afraid of the crazy". Although I never think your looks are crazy! They're too fabulous to be crazy.

    ReplyDelete
