About Molly

I am an Aesthete.  A beauty seeker. A lover of gorgeous. I yearn to create, to beautify, and be inspired.  I am a wife, mother, friend, a musician, and teacher. It is no secret to those who know me personally that I have a strong affection for all things Anthropologie. No, it’s not just the awesome clothes, shoes, and jewelry. It’s much, much more than that.  It’s the creativity spewing forth from the displays. It’s the possibilities I feel as I walk through their doors or peruse their website.  To go make something beautiful, whether it be paper crafting, a new home decor project, or putting together an interesting outfit for the day.  Anthromollogies is a creative pursuit for me; a journey toward developing a keen eye for the “Anthropologie Factor,” so to speak.  I hope you’ll find it an interesting journey as well.

    Hi Molly,
    I am so happy you started this blog…the outfits you put together are gorgeous. I absolutely love the way you pair things together and your use of bold colors. I always look forward to see your reader outfits and I always told myself "When is she going to start her own blog." So glad you did and so glad I found you! All the best!

    • Yaldita,
      Thanks so much for finding my little blog. And your sweet words meant so much to me. Thank you kindly. I'm still getting the hang of blogging… Hoping to be posting more frequently when it doesn't take me so long to plug everything in! I hope to see you here often. Here's to future memories of all things Anthro!

        You are so cute!
        I am also a Mommy (turning 40 this year) with two boys 11 and 14… much like you… I want to stay hip & fun & whimsical on the outside and inside.
        I really enjoy your blog!

  2. Your blog is such a wonderful discovery. And I'm already enjoying the journey : )

  3. I love your outfits, Molly. I always admired them from Kim's blog and am so glad you started your own! Its great that you're a teacher with such great style, and this is coming from a fellow teacher. I look forward to your next post.

    • Jenn, thank you for clicking over here! I loved your outfit tonight on Anthroholic's reader outfits. The colors were so rich and creamy! I teach violin and piano privately, after school for a few hours every day. I've been teaching for 6 years and I really love it, but have felt the need to scale back for a while now. My own kids are getting older and need me available to take them to extracurricular activities. So far it's worked out, but I think the pace may slow down soon. I've never taught in formal education settings. I have TREMENDOUS respect for teachers of elementary and secondary education. What you do is more important than most jobs out there! thanks for finding my blog and I hope to see you around here often!

    Hi! I used your inspirational looks to put together a little something something for today….it was appriciated by the husband and ALL the girls at church..love the blog, love looking at how lovelly you are..thanks for the new motivation to play with all those pretties in my closet xoxox your sister in fashion becks
    ps so making the paper hearts for the wall, lets talk HOW to make them soon:)

    • Darling! So great to see you on here. I want to know the little something something you put together. Details are in order. I'm sure you looked stunning. Loves!

  5. Hi Molly! I absolutely loved your guest post on Kim's blog–I really like the concept of color inspiration and will definitely start doing this with my own wardrobe. You have great style and I will definitely be following your blog! P.S. I have the Anthro craftsmanship capelet as well and adore it. :)


  6. I found your blog while I was googling to find a photo of a blouse I bought for our family pictures since it's no longer on the Anthro site (Gathering Blossoms in the blue print, since I guess there are actually people out there who care! :))

    Anyway, our styles have a lot in common (oh, how I wanted those yellow oxfords you are wearing in this post!) and I think you might be LDS too, no? I have totally gotten some new ideas from your photos on how to help "sneak in" items that I would not have purchased because of technicalities with slips and layering (and I don't mean just putting a white shirt under everything).

    If I'm mistaken, feel free to ignore me, but I feel like I've found a kindred style sister and I totally share your views on my/our favorite store. Yes, it's expensive, yes, often overpriced, but there's just nowhere else to find Gorgeous, Creative, and Satisfying like Anthropologie! I'm a very particular, careful shopper, at Anthro and at Goodwill alike, and if you're smart then you get your money's worth.

    Well done!

    (I did a fashion blogging challenge in December 2010 if you want to take a peek. I can learn some things from you, but it's a start.)

    Hi Molly,
    I just found your site today and I love it and Anthropologie!! You look so great in the clothes. It's just so fun to see someone actually wearing all of the great outfits. Keep it up and enjoy!

    Molly, I’ve been checking out your website for the last 6 months while I’ve been stationed here in Afghanistan. It’s obvious how much you love your family and Anthro! I have bought a few things off Anthropologie and mailed them to my twin sister to keep warm for me until I get home next month. Thanks for the beautiful pics and blog, it’s great to see a Mom wearing Anthro; I can’t wait to get home and start wearing cute clothes again.

    • Melissa- Thanks for your comment! So happy you've enjoyed some Anthro chit-chat while in the desert! Good move on ordering things for your coming home. I could think of nothing better. Oh wait….a pedicure, Godiva cheesecake, and an Anthro trip. There ya go. Thank you so much for your service….deployment is a very real possibility for my own man, so it hits close to home. Thank you. You're awesome. Keep safe, and enjoy your Anthro upon your return!

    Hi Molly,

    I just discovered your blog, it's truly brilliant! You have a great style; I'll definitely check again. Here's one question I have to ask you: I have been looking for color-block Chie Miharas but so far couldn't spot them anywhere in the US offline or online. Where do you get them from? Your help will be appreciated!

    Hello Molly I am so inspired by your blog. I am very creative also. I love your creative artsy spirit. You truley are a jewel. i love everything you love. I love Chie mihara shoes and anthropology clothes although I dont own any of their clothes I find a lot of similar stuff in TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Anthropologie doesnt make my size anyway. I just love your style. Do you have an INSTAGRAM account? i would love to follow you on IG.

    • Molly

      Thank you so much, Kenya! I don’t have instagram at this time, but by summer I hope to. Getting an iphone in May FINALLY, when my plan says I’m up for a new phone. It’ll make instagram so much easier! I hope you continue to follow me through my google reader, bloglovin’, or facebook for now!! Thanks again, you are so sweet!

    Love the Fashion Show. Every pic was awesome!!!! I cannot believe your Blog. It is what I look for all the time. Your style is exactly what the most of us are looking for. Love, love, love everything about you! Found the blog I can look at and never be disappointed. My daughter Megan was in one of the Fashion Show pics. Can’t wait to read and see more!! Tyler, TX

    Hi Molly-
    So love your blog! I am a 40 yr old Mama (also 5′ 91/2″) of two boys (tween & teen). Your outfits are quite inspiring… aesthetic, fun & fanciful (yet still age appropriate). I am a BRAND new middle school science teacher and the kids quite appreciate unique fashion… so happy to have stumbled here for inspiration.
    I have a query- the JCrew pencil skirt… do you feel you need to order the Tall?
    Also- I am 8.5 to 9 n shoes if you are ever looking to purge your closet.

    Be well-

    • Allison

      Oh and I meant “in” shoes…. not (n) as in narrow.

    • Molly

      Hi Allison! So glad you found my blog. Thank you so much for your super nice comments! As far as the J.Crew pencil skirts go, I like the Tall length for me because when I sit down, I don’t feel like I have to constantly tug down on the skirt in the Tall length. I do own a few regular length ones that I still wear, but I am much more conscientious about it creeping up when I do. If you want the skirt to *truly* come to your knees when you are sitting down, then you definitely need the tall length. Hope this is helpful!
      If you have any other questions, fire away. I’d love to help!
      p.s. I wish your feet were a size 10!
