Jahara Goes Sailing

Thanks for Liz from Lizzypunch for the lovely blog award! And a belated thanks to Lesa from Always Summer for another great blog award! Please stop by and visit them - it's always fun to take a peek into each other's worlds through this "blog thing".

And happy birthday to all my fellow Cancers who are celebrating today! Special shoutout to Gigi who threw a very well attended virtual party. Here's what I "wore" to la fĂȘte:


And here's what I wore today - keeping things simple today, and that's why I really like this dress. It's almost too simple that I have to refrain from over-dressing it up. It is super-comfy though, plus I love any dress or skirt with snack pockets.



Dress: Anthropologie Maeve Staysail (worn here before, and here in the blue)
Belt: Anthropologie Infinity
Shoes: Sofft Giovanna (or here on super-sale)
Necklace: Anthropologie Lydell Jahara (worn here before)

Is anyone else getting a few days off work in honor of the 4th? What fun (mis)adventures are you all planning?

  4. fabulous dresses! there's that amazing Anthro belt - I just bought it on sale a few weeks ago and love it. I think I may have to pull the trigger on the grey Snakebite (nm?) belt too...

  5. I love the first outfit! The different patterns are mind-bogglingly genius!

    I always have a hard time with LBDs because they ARE so simple and classic by themselves! I think you look fabulous in it here!

  9. your first outfit rocks! I love it!! I was just bemoaning my fate that I missed the Jean Paul Gaultier striped dress at Target. I had it in my hands like a million times, but never tried it on - now I see it all over the blogs and love it! Stripes are awesome!

  17. Kcookski / Spiffy - I LOVE Sofft footwear. It's so comfy and stylish! Good to know I'm not alone in my Sofft-love.

    Tricia - Ooh, pyro fun sounds awesome. The 4th is not complete without a little sunburn, some hot dogs and fireworks!

    Tippy - Owning too many striped things has totally not stopped me from acquiring more. My pile is actually getting a wee bit shameful!

    Peggy - I feel bad about missing out on the JPG striped dress too - I think it was the only piece from his Target collection that was really nice and wearable.

    Eek - I kind of want to get the Snakebite in grey too - I see it all over the place and it really seems like a versatile piece.

    Thanks for your comments, Jan, Marie, Ady, Melanie, Lesa, Becca, Cindi, Elaine & Audrey!

    Thanks for stopping by and visiting, Elle and anthropologieconnoisseur!
