my anthro wishlist

Spring Anthro

Anthropologie is one of those stores I always wanted to shop at when I was younger but never actually did because it is so expensive. When I got my first job out of college (and my first steady paycheck) I would occasionally browse Anthropologie and if I saw something I loved, I would purchase it. However, I found that the quality did not always meet the price tag and eventually stopped shopping there altogether.

This week I have been working in downtown San Francisco and had to run an errand in Union Square which was right by the Anthropologie. They had some cute items in the window display and later that night I decided to browse their website. I found these gems above and am debating on purchasing them. 

What do you all think? Is Anthropologie clothing worth the price? What if it is on sale?

I love all of the bright colors that are popping up this spring! However, like any trend, these bright colors may not be around for more than a few seasons. Living in a somewhat trendy city like San Francisco, I like to be apart of the stylish fun, but I also have to remember that I have a tight budget. Rather than feeling left out I tend to save my splurges on classic items (such as a white tee, black blazer, and bag) and then opt for cheaper versions of the clothes that are trendy this season season.

These green pants are from UO and at only $58 they aren't breaking the bank. The examples below are different ways I have seen these jeans styled. My favorite is the last image, very Kate Spade with the pink and green!

Do you guys like this trend? How would you style them and what color would you pick?
