Buds & Bunches

Today I was feeling some Anthro love! For running around in the heat, I threw on the Buds & Bunches Tee (on sale now for $29.95). I really can't wait to style this top better. It is cute enough to wear with jeans but I think it has lots more potential!

Tonight I am teaching a class for some of the Laurels (16 and 17 year-olds) from our church so why not pull out my new Rising Vipers Dress. This picture does not do justice to this dress is but it is very flattering and sooooo comfy! I hurt my knee this afternoon doing who knows what so I had to wear flats (gasp)!

My hair is in a side bun here thanks to my new Goody Spin Pins which I LOVE!!! I have thick hair and little bobby pins just don't do the trick but these do job!

Love that dress on you. I "thought" I wanted it, but seeing it on you-now I "know" I must place the order....blog reading empties my wallet again...

You make that dress look GOOD!! And that tee- I love that tee!!

Jan Russell said...

I positively LOVE both pieces on you! I know I'm a broken record, but you always look so effortless - I think you have a magic touch! I put a dress on and it's all "why are you so dressed up?" You put a dress on, and it's so easy, it never looks like you are trying too hard...I love that! Pretty, pretty!!!

LOVE the tee that you just linked - Don't think it's available Canada unfortunately ;(

Too funny, I just got the Buds and Bunches Tee too and plan on wearing it Thursday (with my new spin pins) when we visit vineyards on our vaca -- wow, how's that for alliteration!

Lorraine said...

I love both outfits. You look amazing! I teach the activity days girls and it's so fun.

Debye said...

JulieStyles-get it, you'll love it, here I go being the enabler ;)

Jan-I always get the "why are you all dressed up question" it drives me nutso but at least someone thinks I look effortless...lol

W Hayes-wait I thought I was the first person to ever discover the Spin Pins...jk!!Have fun at the vineyards, perfect place for the tee!

Lorraine-Ahhh, I am jealous....I love Activity Days. I am a counselor in the primary presidency but I am lucky enough to be asked to do a lot of stuff with the YW since I sew and craft. I need girl fixes since I am trapped in a house of all boys

Sanders Family said...

Love both outfits. What size of top are you wearing in the buds and bunches tee? I have a hard time with sizes at anthro?

mommydearest said...

ITA with Jan Russell. The style of my circle of friends/acquaintances is so varied - I always feel self-conscious "dressing up" even though I love it.

ADORE the buds & bunches tee. Did you find the blue was TTS? I have black, beige and orange. Now I need blue for a complete set ;) (Yes, it is *that* flattering for the unconverted. And washable.)

Peggy said...

I just had to tell you -you are the blog hit with my co-workers! They love your style too! What size did you get in the Buds & Bunches? I tried med -huge, small, still huge- do I dare try an XS??

Michelle Q said...

So cute! I love my buds and bunches tee - I have the beige and my husband says it looks like a "naked top" so I might have to go with another color too!

That dress is perfection on you - so pretty!

I tried on the rising vipers dress and it was all kinds of wacky on me.

I bought that same buds and bunches tee and just thought "I wonder how to style this . . ." Can't wait to see what you think up.

I rarely comment but read your blog all the time. You have really great style - it does seem effortless.

Jessica said...

I just got the rising vapors dress too. I love it and love the way you styled it. And I also have the B&B tank and must admit that I love it with crisp white. I need to try those bobby pin things.

My sister and I made a trip to Anthro last week. It's a real treat because in our small town, Gap's the best we have. Anyway -- I had two arm loads of clothes to try on, and I'd simply dismissed the Viper dress -- it didn't make the cut to drag to the dressing room. But then, there was a woman who was trying it on -- and came out to look at it in the big mirror. She looked amazing! So sis and I both dashed out and grabbed the Viper too. We both bought it -- this dress flatters everyone! (Daughter, who loves to tease her mom said, "Looks like a dress you wore in a ship wreck" I've learned to ignore her.) Thanks for ratifying our decision -- gonna use my pink sweater too!

yogagirl said...

AWESOME DRESS on you! You are turning into one of my FAVORITE BLOGGERS--I virtually love all your outfits and "how you put it all togetha!"

Debye said...

Sanders Family and Peggy-I sized down one to a small. It is not tight but I don't think it is meant to be but I could be wrong....it happens (just don't tell my kids that)

Carie-thanks and feel free to comment whenever you want :o)

Mommy Dearest- I heard, er...read, that the sizing seemed to vary by color. On the blue, I sized down to a small (which isn't totally uncommon for me at Anthro)

Barbara-How funny, it does remind me of seaweed or even tentacles!!!

Yogagirl-ahhhh, thank-you! I love your blog too, you have such a fun, energetic & playful sense of style that seems to really reflect your personality perfectly!

I love the buds and bunches tee! I ordered the rising vapor dress yesterday (I had to track that guy down!) You look so great it in I CANNOT WAIT to get it!!! I love those little goody spin pins too!

Jenni said...

Ok, that dress is awesome! They're all out online in the dark grey...BOO! WOnder how I could find it...and I also love to get all dressed up and it drives me nuts too when I get asked by my friends why I got all dressed up...cause I wanted to!!! Duh! =)

-suz said...

I have the buds in bunches in cream, black and now blue...yikes! it is super cute and looks great with jeans or a pencil skirt for work...love it. You look awesome!

A said...

I bought both bc of you and a jacket! It all looks incredible!

Thank you so much! I just adore your style!

mollywaffles said...

Love the buds and bunches tee! Really cute! Dress looks great on you too.

amy kelinda said...

Ooooo, I'll have to try those bobby pins! I have thick hair too and have a hard time putting my hair in a bun because regular bobby pins are too sissy, haha! I love the dress on you! Those ruffles down the front are darling and look soooo soft!

PS. I hope your knee is all better!
