Thank goodness today is my Friday off. I have never been so far behind on comment rounds. Bad weather knocked out cable and Internet service Wednesday night. As for last night, I apologize for having no excuse. So I will spend today playing catch-up. I can't wait to see what all you lovely Lady's picked up on sale from Anthro.
This is yesterday's OOTD. A comfy, cozy outfit for a chilly day.

When I don't feel like dressing up for work, I go casual with Athleta. I adore their collection of Cotton, Cashmere, and Angora blend sweaters. The knit is light weight, soft, and has no itch factor. I do find that many of Athleta's sweaters are too long in the body and sleeves.

My colorful hand crocheted scarf was a gift from my Mom a few years ago. She is both beautiful, talented and a breast cancer survivor.
Athleta's Whatever Skort is perfect for a windy, rainy day. Light weight, wrinkle resistant, quick drying, with the added security of built in shorts. I also have the skort in Viola.

I would be lost without at least one item from Anthro included in my OOTD. I grabbed the Pin Dot Tights in both Brown and Navy on the way out the door of the Monterey CA store earlier this year. If you are ever planning a visit in the area, don't forget to bring your 4-legged friend's along. Because the entire shopping center, including Anthro, is dog friendly.

I sure miss one of my favorite Etsy shops. Mud and Mint!. I am hoping one day the shop will re-open. Till then I love wearing Cari's creative natural stone jewelry.

I scored a few Anthro sale items yesterday!
This has been Wish Listed forever. I am keeping my fingers crossed since there are no reviews. I dearly desire this neutral statement necklace as an addition to my collection. Not only is the name of the product intriguing (2 of Jupiter's 62 moons), but the use of metallic thread, wool and silk is fascinating.
A couple 5 star belts to add to my meager collection.
What tempted you from the Anthro sale? Did you give into temptation? How bad were you? If you were able to overcome the urge I would love to know how you did this? Leave a comment please.
Ready or not, here I come. I am moments away from an afternoon of comment rounds.
