Casbah & Apothecary

Here’s the J Crew Casbah Dress. This is my new favorite print and I love the green jewel tones.

Size 8

It is a side zip and has and extra zip for the bust paneling. I’ll try to get a shot of it later.  I tried a belt right under the bust but it didn’t look great, IMO. There is pleating right under the center of the bust which gives it that “float away from the body” look as well as the “I may be pregnant” look. It will be good when hiding “food babies” too.

I also bought the scarf in this print. Even though it’s wool it is very lightweight and sheer/thin. Texas seems to have skipped Spring and jumped right into Summer (92 today!) so I may not have a chance to wear this outside until next Fall.

This is what I wore today. It’s our wedding anniversary and Husband and I spent the day together by having breakfast, getting our free coffee, and getting massages, facials and pedicures. Here’s the new Anthropologie Apothecary Skirt. There are so many colors in this print but they all go well together. Also, this buttons down the front, just like the J Crew Dorrie Skirt. While at Anthropologie last night I spotted and met Molly, from AnthroMollogies! It was so cool to meet another blogger in person for the first time. And she is so nice and stylish in person!

    I love the casbah print and that dress is gorgeous on you! I am headed to J Crew tomorrow so at the very least, I know the casbah scarf will come home with me.

    Happy anniversary…massages, facials and pedicure…that may need to be our new anniversary tradition too!

    Audrey! It was so great to meet you at Anthro! What a fun coincidence. And you are even more gorgeous in real life than your bloggie photos. I think we ended up being Apothecary twinners on the same day. Haven't posted my photos yet… I LOVE IT! You rocked the skirt, girl! Happy late Anniversary! Hope your massage/facial was divine. where did you go?
