Summer heat is upon us and what better way to cool off than at my computer gathering all the latest items that catch my eye, at, Anthropologie. There was a lot to be excited about and sometimes I tend to want to showcase everything, but a girl on a budget has to be choosy. Still, just in case I win the lottery, I’m sticking to my wishlists and adding to them weekly. One of my favorite effortless basic is the Nighttide Jumpsuit at the top of this post – I mentioned it in my Spring Ready Head to Toe Looks post and I still can’t stop thinking about it. I love that Anthropologie paired it with the eye-catching, Soludos Macrame Thong Sandals and used a simple scarf as a belt to tie around the waist. The jumpsuit really allows so many styling options with the right accessories and attitude. Other items that have me excited are the Striped Luca Maxi dress by Baily 44, the Kira Printed Dress, and the Jessie Tapestry Coat (Love!). So many more choices, so in my Anthropologie Top Picks of the Week June 2017 list, I’ve included: Jumpsuits/Rompers, Dresses, Tops, Jackets, Pants, Shorts, Bags/Accessories/Shoes. Wishlist just exploded . . .
Jumpsuits & Rompers
I mentioned the Ryanne Printed Jumpsuit in my post here and it looked fabulous on the Anthropologie stylist from Palo Alto on Instagram (see it here from my Floral Trend post). A tropical print fun dream to wear anywhere during the summer (shown with this similar bag and these similar shoes).
Another comfy cutie is the Tropicale Jumpsuit in the moss colorway. This halter style wide-leg with knotted front looks so easy and the adjustable strap improves the fit. Minimal accessories required, this red stripe pouch and red strap sandals completes the look.
I just mentioned in this post how rompers are the perfect option during the summer that requires zero thought. The Stripe Linen Romper is so easy to get you out the door in minutes and the split back provides extra relief from the summer heat.
A popular romper getting lots of praise is the Madalenna Open Shoulder Romper and I can see why. This easy pull-on style, easy elastic waist, and even easier flutter sleeves with a criss-cross strap detail in the back will take you anywhere in style.
Tropical prints are the latest current fashion trend that is synonymous with summer weather. The Palm Printed Open-Shoulder Romper is the perfect example – the vibrant red hue, light fabric, and ruffle detail on the open-shoulder arms takes you from day to night in palm print perfection.
The Beachside Off-the-Shoulder Dress has the perfect combination of polka-dots, tie-waist, knee length, and off-the-shoulder ruffle silhouette, which makes it a sophisticated piece I would wear for years. Shown with vibrant yellow accessories, the bag here and sunglasses here.
If you don’t want to jump on the off-the-shoulder trend, then the Lottie Flutter Tunic Dress is a fantastic option. Simple and sophisticated with just the right amount of ruffle on the sleeves and then adding a neutral belt creates a contemporary of the moment dress (shown with this belt and these sunglasses).
My bohemian side wants to live in the Kira Printed Dress all summer long. I would have to wear a bandeaux underneath due to the sides being a little low, but all in all a great maxi dress to keep you cool in the summer and on vacation (pictured with these sandals).
Another easy summer dress choice is the Fiore Silk Halter Dress. The intricate lace adds just the right amount of texture to this feminine halter dress (pictured with these sandals and a similar bag here).
Easy is way better when it comes to summer dress choices, the Riviera Tasseled Dress has a relaxing summer style – love the vibrant red against the grey multi color background, throw on and go style, and adjustable tasseled tie closure at the shoulders. Adding neutral accessories, this cuff bracelet and these sandals, completes the look.
A t-shirt dress is always in my summer dress rotation and when I saw the Current Elliott Winged T-Shirt Dress I instantly became excited – on the wishlist it goes. I also got super excited when I saw the Current Elliott Ruffled Stripe Tee, another great option from this Americana, made in the USA brand.
For a flattering look for a modern woman, the Gingham Flutter Sleeve Tunic Dress has it in spades – a contemporary, classic a-line, with flutter sleeves and side pockets. Being versatile and easy to wear, with belting being optional, is a true winner in my book (paired with this Bag).
Anthropologie always offers a memorable cute tank every season and the Bow Back Tank should be added to that list. Available in 4 great color choices, 100% cotton, and two cute ties in the back, is making me want to get it in every color (paired with this jacket and this skirt).
A view of the cute back of this easy comfy tank – need it in all colorways, please.
The Linen and Lace Tee is calling my name when it comes to comfort and texture in a Linen and cotton combo. The Lace detailing on the chest and hem gives it just the right amount of interest to elevate a basic tee (shown with this bandana). I’d size up to get a draper fit like on the model.
Love the stripes and dots on the Printed Everyday Tank from master t-shirt maker, Moise Emquies from his Stateside brand – a collection of oh so-soft separates. And this cozy cotton navy stripe staple is 4th of July ready.
A consistent reliable brand in soft basics is Pure and Good. I’ve bought a ton of their t-shirts and love them for their cozy comfort and no-nonsense choices – the Henley Tee looks to be another contender to be added to my closet. Love it paired with this denim skirt and my top favorite trench of the moment here.
Loving the adorable monkey print on Bailey 44’s Juniper Halter Top. The ramie cotton and adjustable rope tie has me wanting the top even more, I see myself swinging into my local store and getting it.
The Sylvan Ruffled Blouse has a quiet dignity about it and the ruffled sleeves allows for a relaxed element added to the mix. Love it both in the navy and the white (pictured with the jeans below) colorway.
I just want to live in the easy comfortable Pocketed Linen Tunic every time I look at it. I hope this is long enough to be worn on my 5’5 frame as a dress or I would wear this as a bathing suit cover-up, in addition to a tunic.
Jackets and Kimonos
This section of my Anthropologie Top Picks of the Week June 2017 list is the one I was most excited about, so many great choices when it comes to jackets and kimonos. There were so many, I had to narrow it down and then add some additional choices at the end of this post.
I’m crushing hard on the Floral Applique Jacket – an easy piece to elevate any outfit and could be worn season after season. Dress it up or down and accessorize with a great bag and sunglasses (shown with this skirt).
Building on my camo obsession from my latest post, the Pilcro Denim Boyfriend Jacket in camo print is now added to that list. Now this one is a relaxed style jacket, it’s meant to be over-sized, so sizing is dependent on how you want the fit – I personally like the loose style (pictured with this dress and these earrings). My two other current favorite camo jackets here and here.
A utility jacket is another great option to wear instead of a kimono or cardigan, the Utility Moto Jacket by Marrakech is on point with it’s neutral pearl color, light cotton fabric and drawstring hem (with a bag I’d pair it with, and this top).
Every year I’m always on the look out for a cozy over-sized cardigan. The Fringed Cardigan has made my list this year with a casual open front, neutral gray and fringed detail on the back – something I would wear daily when the mood strikes (pictured with this top, these shorts, and this necklace).
Another great choice in a kimono is the Carson Reversible Kimono Jacket by Raga – you get two jackets in one with this bohemian mixed print kimono.
The Betsey Floral Kimono has just the right amount of drape of floral and fringe to get me excited about the summer weather. Available for pre-order right now, it’s expected to ship around August the 3rd.
Stripes are a must-have on any garment, especially during the spring summer months, add in a long lean linen blazer and you have a winning topper. The Stripe Long Linen Blazer is all kinds of fabulous – a great substitute for a cardigan and is ready to throw on and go (shown with this top, these jeans, and these heels).
Hands down one of my current favorite trench jackets is the fabulous, Khaki Cocoon Trench by Emin + Paul. If your fascinated and keeping up with Paris street fashion, you’ve noticed the over-sized men jackets Parisian women are wearing that have made this trend chic and timeless. This generous sized trench with a collared neck and one-button closure is an essential layer for multiple seasons – count me in as a fan (shown with this top, similar pant, and sunglasses).
In my Anthropologie Top Picks of the Week June 2017 list, on the very top of my wishlist is the eye-catching, Jessie Tapestry Coat. This coat reminds me of old-school Anthropologie and is something that is more of a NEED instead of a WANT to add to my wardrobe – love it with this Cami (pictured).
Jeans and Pants
In the Jean department, the Citizens of Humanity Emerson Mid-Rise Slim Boyfriend Jean has a fantastic floral embroidery running down the leg. Worn-in, relaxed style, and a denim light color makes these jeans one of my new favorites from one of my top jean brands besides, AG, Pilcro and Current Elliott (shown with the white version of the Sylvan Ruffled Blouse – now I know I need both colors in this top).
Another summer jean must-have is the Current Elliott The Fling Mid-Rise Relaxed Ankle Jeans. With just the right amount of stretch and breathing room for your legs, adding a white ruffled top, neutral tote, and current trend metallic sandals and you’re set looking sharp for your day.
Like I mentioned before, stripes are a spring summer wardrobe must. Absolutely loving the Navy Stripe Wide Legs – talk about elongating the legs, and the drawstring waist and pull-on style makes it so easy to slip into. The reviews mentioned that the pant is longer than described, but I’d be willing to pay a few dollars to get them altered (shown with this similar Cami and my current favorite sandals here).
Another easy throw on and go pant is the Eventide Crops – the elastic waist, slim pin-stripe and crop length is the perfect pant to wear out to eat or sight-seeing around the islands (pictured with this similar top, and another one here and these sandals).
You knew I had to add a camo print short into the mix, the Wanderer Printed Shorts by Hei Hei has me day-dreaming of a Costa Rica vacation, hiking and exploring the island in these cutie shorts – will my camo obsession never die, nope. (pictured with this top and this hat).
Another short stand-out is the Pilcro Hyphen Embroidered Shorts – talk about eye-catching embroidery and texture – love the length and raw seams with just the right amount of neutral embroidery.
Bags and Accessories
- Daria Clutch – yellow is calling my name when it comes to this clutch.
- Rubina Tassel Choker – loving the white tassels on this one.
- Santina Embroidered Crossbody – must have this one NOW!
- Embroidered Aqua Tote – Just loving the embroidery in this vibrant color.
- Colorblock Pouch – I need this for a 4th of July outing.
- Embroidered Cacti Scarf – what’s not to love with this adorable cacti motif.
- Jeffrey Campbell Lamora Shooties – love the cut-outs and neutral color.
- Howsty Muse Espadrilles – loving the ankle ties and wrap ankle.
- Sol Sana Porter Heeled Sandals – chic and a comfortable heel height.
- Seychelles Nobody Else Faux Fur Heels – fury AND pink – YES!
- Pour La Victoire Logan Slide Sandals – these are primo leather slides.
I hope you enjoyed my Anthropologie Top Picks of the Week June 2017 list, I’ve come to the conclusion that 1. I’m obsessed with Camo Print, 2. I have to win the lotto to purchase all of these items and 3. I need to investigate what else is out there at Anthropologie. I may need a fashion intervention at my local store. I’ll report back. In the meantime, take a look at MORE of my obsessions below. Till next time.
