Favorite Thing Wednesdays: dreamy window displays

5 May

What inspires you creatively? For me it can be a glossy magazine spread, my family, an HGTV show, or especially the beauty of nature. One company that really has inspirational, creative ideas is Anthropologie. I love their dreamy window displays.

And speaking of dreams, remember the outfit that I mentioned in the Friend Makin’ Monday: a girl can dream??

Well, I was in Anthropologie a few weeks ago dreaming, and I found THE SHOES in a clearance section. Regularly $170, mine for $29.00!I hope you have an inspired day!
