Well hey there friends… long time no see!!!! I’ll be honest, I’m back and re-energized after a week away from ALL THE HUSTLE + BUSTLE of our “normal” life and damn it feels good. I say this all the time, but never get so busy making a life that you never get to enjoy it–a little vacation does wonders for the mind + body + soul and then I come back ready to tackle my days even more than before.
I had been feeling the effects of “burnout” and a little reset was just what the doctor ordered. But now, summer is officially in session with the girls off at their first camp this week–Camp Wonderfully Made which is their ABSOLUTE favorite and I am diving into a busy week, personally and professionally.
With that, let’s chat summer at Anthropologie = it’s no surprise they are my #1 destination when it comes to apparel and accessories, but their summer entertaining and game finds ice the cake to make everything fun and memorable without sacrificing fabulous design and function = a double win! In case you missed this goodness via Instagram, I thought I would share it here, especially for those of you looking to craft a tasty charcuterie board, stock up on all the melamine serving pieces or want a new croquet set for family game night on the lawn!
I know you all went CRAZY for this Wide Leg Jumpsuit [runs TTS/wearing XS] last week when I debuted this one piece wonder. Super flowy + relaxed with a standout print in all the bold colorways I love = yes please. Put on my fav Travel Pearl Sandals + White Enamel Drop Earrings and you’ve got a winning ensemble that keeps you cool + comfy wherever your crew takes you.
And yes, if your outdoor space needs a bit of color [because more color is always my motto] then the Vera for Anthro Perennial Indoor/Outdoor Pillow is just the right accessory with its sunshine happy vibe. You can see more of the collection online here.
Now speaking of happy… nothing makes me happier than a curated charcuterie when you have guests come over to visit and this new Amari Serving Platter is perfect for small get togethers. And that handle in pink + orange makes it stand out–still not sure how to whip up a cheese + meat board?? Feel free to visit this post I published a few years ago with all the items you need!
Now I don’t know about you, but I LOVE fancy serving trays, serving pieces and dinnerware, yet when I see “hand wash only” that’s a no-go for me. Insert this Bamboo Madras Plaid Serving Platter [so stunking cute and only $20], Oranges Serving Platter [a steal for $28], Yellow Canape Side Plates for $8 each and the Plaid Serving Set [a for sure at $12], and you’ve got al fresco dining done right.
Finally, let’s get a central lawn game setup queued up and ready and start it off with this ADORABLE Picnic Travel Croquet Set. We are all about the classic yard fun for summer and this set is not only cute, but comes with a handy dandy carrying case so you can take it with you on trips, too. Need more options?? They also offer a Cornhole Set, Connect Four Game, Travel Backgammon and Table Tennis, too.
And no, I won’t leave you hanging without a proper introduction to this stunning Felicity Maxi Dress… three colorways with all over embroidery that begsto be worn, it runs TTS/wearing XS and you’ll love the free-flowing silhouette that’s absolute perfection for all things summer and into fall [when you layer it up with a denim jacket!]
Ready to get the summer soiree underway??? I’ve assembled the perfect necessities and extra essentials for easy shopping, all from Anthropologie for a one-stop shopping experience everyone can enjoy. And it all ships for free when you spend $50!
