Pretty Pink Cottage

Pink Cottage Blouse: Anthropologie, limited sizes here
No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double Serge Wool, neon azalea: J.Crew, wool no longer available but buy cotton version here
Blush patent leather heels:  Tahari, buy similar here
This insanely adorable top is called the Pink Cottage Blouse (don't you love all the cute names of Anthropologie items?) so of course I had the lyrics of John Mellencamp's "Little Pink Houses" in my head all day.  I am head over heels for this top, I felt like I was wearing art work all day.  Here's a picture of the back, where you can see it ruffles down the back and has buttons.  A lot of the reviews said people are wearing it backwards too, which I think is genius.  I may have to try that next time!

I was a little hesitant about buying a skirt with a color named "neon azalea," but after I saw it on Shopping with M I knew I had to have it.  And although neon colors are big right now, I wouldn't necessarily call this neon.  More of a bright, cheerful pink.  I am glad the day was cool enough to wear it one more time, as it is a heavier wool.  Are you into the bright color and neon trends?


  1. The blouse is artwork indeed. A product rec for you based on a comment you made in another post. The HD powder by Smashbox is wonderful for keeping shine away. I dust that on lightly before putting on any other makeup. Another product like I are those shine blotters. They're nice for touchups and don't interfere w/makeup. I prefer Clean & Clear. $.02

  2. Oh, the blouse is so perfect with the skirt! Love! Thanks for the link love too. :)

  3. Gigi I will try the smashbox product for sure! I do like those little absorbant sheets...I should pick some up! Lord do I get shiny during the day! Thanks M! Thanks Jasmine!
