Anthropologie Summer Catalogue

Have you guys seen the latest Anthropolige catalogue? I was so thrilled to be a small part of it. The Anthro crew came to our desert A-frame and brought truck loads of their new outdoor furniture and decked out our garden! It was so fun getting to see and test out all of the new pieces that were not yet launched at the time and I got to share a few outdoor entertaining tips in the catalogue, which you can also view here.

Pre-Pinterest days, and even before I started this blog, I used to hoard Anthropologie catalogues, I’d clip them up and use them for real life inspiration boards and I specifically remember one that was set in the desert where they did a whole circus theme. I was so inspired by that shoot and thought it must be such an interesting job to get to think up the photoshoots and I dreamed of being a part of something like that. Then boom 5 or so years later here I am! My Anthro catalogue dreams came true.

And now for the goodies… I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite pieces from their newly launched outdoor line.

I want to snap up alllll the pieces!

To celebrate the feature in the catalogue I also got to teach a little workshop at the Anthropologie in Newport Beach where I styled a table two ways and shared more tips on tablescaping. Check here to read a few!

Also, find my new favorite jumpsuit I’m wearing above, here!

Now please excuse me while I pinch myself and start planning my next summer shindig… x

I love the lasercut pattern on these shorts, and the material, and the fit. ;) I’ve been wearing them any chance I get, to the beach with a bikini in the day, and dressed up with the cuff and bag (also a new favorite, thanks to Rupe shopping my Pinterest Want page… score!) for a night out with our happy hour crew.

I picked the “candied ginger” colorway, which happens to be my latest hue obsession. You may also recognize it from my new studio floors… CAN NOT get enough of that color in my life.

I have been living in this leopard pullover from Anthro for the last week (see what I mean) and scored some great basic ones from Madewell’s big sale. Now here’s hoping we get some snow while we’re there!

However, we had friends over this past weekend so I thought I better put on some clothes. You know, the decent thing to do. Luckily these silk pants are the worlds most comfortable trousers and the top keeps me just as cool in the heat as the bathing suit.
