Sweet Summer Dress






“Out with the old, in with the new”

My Dress: Anthropolgie | My Sunglasses: Anthropolgie (similar)| Lilly’s dress: H&M  
This has been our life mantra the past couple of months, our ‘old life’ stripped away to make room for the new things in store. Stripping away the old can be painful and bittersweet, but my oh my, my heart beats a little faster thinking of all the new things that have come and are up ahead! New home, new furnishings, new heart perspective, new new new. (Oh, and a new camera helps a lot too, insert major squealing!) 
In the midst of our move, we took a short pre-anniversary trip to Utah. It was my first time there, the mountains were stunning and they just seemed so close and so big! We stopped by Anthropologie, which is one of my very favorite shops to walk through at The Village at Meridian. I could honestly spend a good hour and a half just walking slowly through that store admiring all the beauty, anyone else?! If I could shop at one store for the rest of my life (clothing & home decor), Anthropologie would hands down be my first pick! So you can imagine my excitement when I found this sweet, summery dress there on double clearance! Every now and then Anthro has an additional 20-30% off their clearance section, (my favorite time to shop 😉 ) and so I scored this dress for $100 less than the original price!!! I always feel so productive and giddy when I find a good sale!
If you had to pick one store to shop at forever, which would it be?? Let me know in the comments below.

    Awesome pictures, and the yellow dress looks great on you. If I had to shop at one store for the rest of my life, it’d be White House Black Market. I would never leave.

    Makenna! I love love LOVE when you include your daughter in your posts. It gives so much authenticity to your blog.
    What model is your new camera? Do you prefer it to your old one?
    And for the store I could shop at forever would depend on budget but for high-end it’d be saks fifth ave. and for regular budget H&M
