Hi darling readers, I hope your weekend was wonderful.  I worked both days.  On Monday I received the new June Anthropologie catalog and was instantly inspired by one of the outfits in the catalog.  This is the shoot that transpired. Warning: picture heavy. 

Skirt thrifted/goodwill $3.99
Shirt thrifted/goodwill $3.99
Necklace thrifted/goodwill $3.99
Belt/Anthropologie on sale $14.99
Shoes TJ Maxx $39.99

I missed Inspiration Monday yesterday and had every intention of joining in but I had to help my neighbor put her cat to rest.  It was heart breaking to say the least.  I am so sad today.  I love cats and can't help but feel for them when they are homeless, in pain,sick or hungry.  I am just trying to be there for her right now.  Have a great day...sorry for my absence.  Stay inspired.  dawn xo

so sad about the kitty! so happy that your post was image heavy. i like photos, & those ones were fun. now, i'm wondering what the anthro catalog looked like. i was on their mailing list for like 5 minutes, but i think they took me off because i never ordered anything.

Sorry about the kitty cat. I enjoyed your anthro inspired photo shoot, though! Especially warrior 3! Good job!

Love the photos, the last one is fabulous. Am really sorry to hear about the kitty, so sad. My aunt has had some that have had to have that. I'm not a cat person, but to have to do that would just make me really sad. I hope the rest of your week brings a bit more happiness :) xx


Hello Dawn, and thank you so much for your visit and comment.
I love you and your blog and want your skirt, lol.
following inmediately and adding you to my blogroll, yeahhhhhhhhhhhh.
I do hope we become great blogger friends.


It looks like you stepped right out of the pages of the catalog, Dawn! Just gorgeous!

And so sad about your neighbor's cat. It's heartbreaking to have to put any animal to rest.

Hope your spirits get lifted soon. xoxo

First, I am so sorry about your neighbors kitty, and can I just tell you how amazing you are that you were there to support them! Major good karma points there lady friend! Second, you look beyond stunning and these photos are amazing. Third, did you enter my Ally Hoot Vintage Red Apple Necklace giveaway yet?! If not, you totally should, I'm picking a winner tomorrow night! Xo Lori

Wow...the print is gorgeous...definitely anthro inspired look at just a fraction of the cost...sorry anthro. Nice styling Dawn...i like the chambray top and beautiful necklace. Very tropical safari style. And your poses are so cute...more entertaining than the anthro catalogue for sure.


Emilie said...

Dawn, that last picture is priceless! HaHaHa Anthropologie will never be the same. I love looking at their catalogs, because they always come up with something unique and inspiring. I love your skirt. It's a beautiful print. The necklace you're wearing is gorgeous. I feel so sorry for your neighbor. It's hard to lose a pet.
