Born in the USA! I was... Born in the USA! Are you singing yet? What a perfect casual look for July 4th! The top is by Wild Fox Couture.

Pineapple Party in Times Square

Somehow fruity details in fashion make an outfit more fun. Am I right?! The inspo for this look comes from my nickname, Anna Banana. This bag is by Kate Spade. Given the recent news, I treasure this bag even more. It’s from her ‘That’s Bananas’ range. Pretty much anytime I see anything banana... I get it. Have to have it! I will wear this bag until until it falls apart! As for the whimsical pineapple sweater, I think it is just so cute without being too 'cutesy' if you know what I mean. It's my Show Me Your Mumu. The white jeans are by 7 for all Mankind. The gold flats are by Tory Burch.

Saturday Jammin in Space Dye

Saturday jammin in space dye! Does that remind you of a certain Michael Jordan movie?! This outfit has me dancin' and so did that movie! I've been obsessed with space dye for ages! Space dye is cool because it gives the appearance of a strong texture and often it is smooth to the touch. This teal top is cool because it also fades from teal to white and switches to a flowy material at the bottom. It also has a peekaboo hole across the back. It is from Anthropologie. I paired them with casual, lace-up, suede shorts for a flirty earthy look. Here's your chance... do your dance... at the Space _____, alright!? FILL IN THE BLANK :-) Scroll down to shop the look!
