The Anthropologie Effect
Picture it. Mt. Lebanon. 2018.
I have a big work event coming up and I want some interesting, yet conservative clothes. Anthro can sometimes deliver brilliantly on professional attire. And sometimes it's a total dud. But I was leaving in three days so I decided to give it a shot. Tucked in the back corner, next to some delightfully smooshy and feminine comforters, I found this wrap skirt.
It's so bright and colorful. Like... every single color ever.
Maybe it was the bergamot swirling in the air or the creaking of the floorboards that lulled me into a trance, but I knew I was going to leave the store with this skirt.
And I'm so glad I did! It goes perfectly with a white t-shirt. I can throw a cropped blazer over top to make it a little more office-ready. Flats. Heels. I don't do the white sneaker thing but I can totally see that working with this too. With all of these colors, you can't really go wrong. But of all the combinations, I'm most in love with this cropped black knit and the skirt. Truth be told, I sort of wear this cropped tank with everything. (See here, here and here.) But this skirt gives it so much more life. The skirt is silk so it moves with the slightest breeze. And the cascading ruffle is like a refreshing waterfall. *le sigh*
I can't help myself. This skirt brings the rainbow out of my all black everything heart. Don't blame me.
Anthro made me do it.
