So I bought this little jumper off the sale rack at anthropologie (where it was hanging with the dresses), and I’ve been wearing it out & about with a straw hat and a cardigan feeling all cute-like. Then I just saw that it’s in the loungewear section of their website. So I guess I’ve been bumming around town in my pajamas. HA/:)/Ba ha ha ha/Boo yah/hee hee hee/jazz hands/SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.

This fabric jewelry is so pretty.

That romper from anthropologie is too cute! I wouldn't have thought it was jammies either, although the ad did say "lounge wear" so you could justify it by saying that you were "lounging" around the city. It'd also be cute if you did a Ten-Minute Onesie on it and added a cute skirt.


I'm glad to know you've been out away and busy! I am embarrassed to admit that I checked back more often then usual (um, that means more then twice…extra embarrassing) to make sure I hadn't missed any creative goodness! Hurry home!


Dying at that story about the jumper. Reminds me of that Friends episode where Rachel was wearing lingerie and then the guy's parents came home and she told them, "Oh no, this is a dress!" And then they all went to dinner with her wearing her skivvies. Haha!
