Asters Everywhere!

I wore this outfit yesterday - I love wearing dresses on Mondays! I fell in love with this frock last winter and have enjoyed it all year long. One of my favorite things about it is that it has little three-dimensional flower applique's all over it. Pure prettiness! It came with a greenish sash, but it ended up sort of clashing with this cardigan, so I left the sash behind.

Dress: Anthropologie Asters Everywhere Dress
Cardigan: J. Crew (Jackie)
Cami: Banana republic
Tights: Hue
Shoes: Dansko

EDIT: Here are some close-up pictures of the flower appliques per JG's request!


  1. I've never even seen that dress before. Cuteness! I also love the color of the Jackie cardi. I love that cardi!!! I want one in every color.

  2. That is adorable. I love Flowery dresses. This one is too cute. And everybody is talking about the Jackie Cardigans. I guess I am going to miss out on them this time around. I have way too many Cardigans. But then again That color is really nice :) You look great!

  3. Oh, this is one of my favorite dresses and it's been far too long since I've worn it; I'll have to correct that. You look lovely in it!!

  4. Simply lovely! It looks like spring time in Portland. And your outfit is like a burst of spring.

  5. I don't even remember this dress. It's absolutely beautiful on you. Especially with Blue Cardi. A Brilliant pairing from top to bottom. And your location choice is gorgeous.

  6. I love that dress and how cool is it that it's three dimensional! I have to say your pics are giving me location envy-I love portland-i grew up there and now, in this the seemingly 10th month of winter here in minnesota I'm super jealous!

  7. I agree, wearing dresses on Monday is the best! It makes it so much easier to get ready in the morning!!!

  8. Oh, those flowers are 3d? Would love to see a closeup!

    The dress looks beautiful on you, PS.

  9. Thanks girls!!!

    Cindi - I want one in every color too (I'm well on my way)!

    Gabby - The Jackie is definitely my favorite cardigan. I know what you mean, it seems like cardigans take up the majority of my closet space:)

    Goldenmeans - I can't wait to see how you style it!

    Lisa - It's starting to look like spring, but it doesn't quite feel like it yet:) Soon.

    Laura - Thanks so much:) I think this dress kind of went under the radar for some reason. It really is a great dress.

    Minnesota Maven - From Portland to Minnesota is quite the change. I moved here about 6 years ago and I LOVE it!

    Kelly - Yes! It does make it easier and it's great to start the week off feeling pretty!

    JG - Thanks! I will post a closeup soon.

  10. That dress is beautiful! And I'm with Laura- I didn't even notice that dress when it was for sale, and you are making me SO regret that. It looks gorgeous on you!

  11. Chloe - Thank you! I just happened to notice it in the store one day and tried it on. Once I saw how good it twirled, I had to have it!

  12. ooooh, I like the closeups! those appliques really add a lovely feeling of depth to the dress.
