Um, can we please talk about how gorgeous all of these sandals from Anthropologie are? I seriously want every single one of these on my feet this summer. There are so many different styles that are perfect for work, the beach, music festivals, or any of the other things that will be happening in the coming months. My birthday is coming up soon so I may just have to treat myself to a pair...or two!
Karen Walker's most recent collection, a tribute to the suffragettes, was full of upbeat, laid back looks with an undercurrent of edge. Walker explored new territory outside of her previous collections, incorporating black and a bold hand, hammer, and broken-heart print. Paying homage to the suffragettes through accessories, she included bags emblazoned with phrases such as "Liberal, Miserable & Cynical." Walker explained backstage that she was interested in the ways women turned whatever they had at hand into a prop for their cause - re-stamping pence coins, making their bags into placards, etc.
I absolutely adore this collection and there is an outfit that could fit any style or mood that I am in for the day, from uber feminine, chic and classy, to an artistic edge.

Designer Calla Haynes invented a story for this collection about a brokenhearted girl leaving Paris to move to Nashville, Tennessee. Calla pulled inspiration from her beloved Chow Chow, Lilybear, to create many of the graphic prints and also drew inspiration from the style of the renowned country musician, Porter Wagoner. The collection is fun, youthful, and full of gorgeous print, textures, and silhouettes. My favorite pieces are the grey Chow Chow sweatshirt and the plaid coat or croptop.
