Inspired: Anthro Look {Bike-About}

The latest crop of outfits at Anthropologie revolve around the tried and true combo of red, white, & blue. I was excited about the unexpected combos reminiscent of summer. I am so excited for the heat of summer. The fourth of July is without a doubt my favorite holiday. I love sunburns, barbeques, swimming, and fireworks. As a kid, I always wore red white and blue on the 4th, generally in the heinous form of stars and stripes on a misfitting vest. I got out of the habit because I felt cheesy. There is nothing about these combos that would make me feel that way.

The outfit, bike-about, really stuck out to me at first glance:

{total $304}

5 Rows Freshwater Pearls - Beautiful Petra's Etsy Shop - $25.00
Alyssa Shirt Dress - Delia's - $14.99 (Orig. $44.50)
Mossimo Patent Ballet Flats - Target - $12.99
TOTAL: $52.98

What do you guys think of red, white & blue? The anthro look? The picks for less? Leave a comment!

Thanks for reading,

Happy Shopping!


  1. very cute dress selection! i think more versatile also.

  2. I'm with Heidi Jo. I think your picks are more wearable than the Anthro look. I would totally wear that outfit.

  3. I love your outfit much better than the Anthro version. Way to go!

  4. I think both of these outfits are adorable -- I love the red shoes! {Or do you remember in Harry Potter, the characters would say "lurve"? As in, "I lurrrve the red shoes!"?}

    The dress you found is a great replacement! I'm really amazed that you found something so similar, and for so much less. I think the print on the Anthro dress is so retro and cute, but I'm not willing to pay over $100 more for it. Great job!

  5. @Mary- Does anyone but Peeves say that? "Potty asked Loony to go to the party! Potty lurves Loony! Potty luuuuuurves Looooony!"

    Good times.

    I love the print of the anthro dress too, but couldn't find anything with a print in a similar silhouette.

  6. they are both soooo pretty. i would wear both outfits in a heartbeat. i can't wait for summer! and in utah you could wear it for pioneer day too...

  7. wow cute!

  8. i looooove that anthro dress. great lookalikes but i think i'll always swoon over the original. I love the shoes though! I need some colored shoes.

  9. i love the look alike! so cute and cheap! :)

  10. Love your look! And I'm with you - the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday!

    I just stumbled upon your blog from Freshly Picked - love it!
