As I look through the Anthropologie website, I tend to daydream about my future house and what special trinkets I would carefully place in each room. I cannot stop my creativeness as I look at the beauty of Anthropologie's green leather chair or the uniqueness of their glass and metal cookie jar. I immediately start looking around my house, finding pictures I can rearrange or putting together a new centerpiece for the kitchen table. It even causes me to pull out my felt and fabric and sew new hair pins for my daughter and my nieces. Now if I could only figure out how to sew a shirt or knit a sweater!
Here are some of my favorite things from the current Anthropologie website. I thought them all too special to keep my remarks to myself. I love to find beauty in the details as in the dancing couple on the covered bar of soap or the soft floppy ears on the cuddly donkey. Adding a plaid bow to a group of bracelets is a simple way to give jewelry the perfect balance of casual elegance. The buttery yellow handbag has the perfect amount of detail by adding a group of small flowers without distracting from the richness of the leather. I suppose as I enter into my 30's I am veering towards a style of casual elegance. It might be fun to go through my house and my wardrobe trying to find ways to create this balance. Here's to finding your own style!
