My Anthropologie Sale Find

Before we left for the beach, I stopped by Anthropologie to check out the sale. Typically, Anthro clothes don't really fit me as I would like -- they tend to be looser and more flowy, whereas I like more of a tailored fit.


Well, even though I am now just one pound from my pre-pregnancy weight (hurray!), I can say that my clothes just don't fit me as they once did. My tummy needs some definite toning. And that's where looser clothes can be an absolute necessity!

I found this Monterey Top on sale for $39 and just had to scoop it up. I purchased it in an XS and I'd say it fits true to size -- if anything, I'd size down a bit from your normal size.

Anthro Monterey Top - on sale now for $40


The sides each have an inverted pleat in them which gives it a swing top look. It's fitted through the bust and upper back and then gives just the perfect amount of flare below. Because it's tailored on the top half, you don't run that risk of looking like you are large all over. Know what I mean?

It's also a really nice and thick fabric, so it doesn't look cheap. I like a top with a good amount of weight to it.

These are available online and you may be able to find one at your local store. I love mine!

  3. I love the look of that top, but I'm so ample in the bosom department that fitted on top and looser on the bottom would be VERY uncomfortable for me :)

    Good work with that pre-preg weight! I know you took such care to track your weight gain and make time for exercise throughout, so it's no surprise that you've so healthily worked your way back!

  9. Ladies..It's really not that hard to lose the baby weight from your 1st pregnancy if you take care of yourself and don't gain a ton of weight..truly. If you are thin before your pregnancy, then breast feed, and eat well after the baby the weight melts off. I'm not sure why the media freaks out or women think it's a huge deal to drop the weight! You look awesome!!

  10. Girl, I want to know your secret. :) It took me a whole nine months to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, and then a whole year to get underneath that pesky number. Amazing! And I love that top. It's already in my shopping cart. ;)
