I have some major wanderlust going on. Lately, there is nothing I want more than to hit the road and go see some cool rocks. Up there on my list is a trip back to Yellowstone to see the park in the winter.
You know what’s not helping at the moment?
Anthropologie’s new “On the Road” themed Look Book.
I feel like I’m on a diet and it’s National Free Chocolate Cake and Ice Cream Day. Why, Anthropologie? Why must you taunt me with a giant piece of chocolate cake when you know I’m trying to stick to my New Year’s Resolution?
Not only can I not hit the open road, I can’t hit the open road in style. I can’t post pictures of myself in scenic locations, wearing adorable outfits. My dreams of earning hype on LookBook will never be realized. Instead, I’m only able to sit in my apartment, gazing mournfully at the cute outfits and sepia-toned backdrops.
If only there were something that could dampen my enthusiasm. I need an outfit so terrible, it’s the only thing I can think of whenever I remember Anthropologie’s look book. I need a slice of chocolate cake with a mealworm in it.
Oh yes. This will do just fine. A drapey chartreuse top without any discernible waist, paired with several dozen of Vanessa Abram’s finest necklaces and a striped skirt that looks like you accidentally tucked the hem into the waistband. Sure, it’d be comfortable for a 12 hour long car ride, but so are a pair of sweats and a tank top, and you’re far less likely to induce a migraine from staring at a pair of sweats.
Thanks, Anthropologie. This is the perfect antidote to my cute outfit fever.
