Denim, Denim Everywhere!

First off, if you were one of the few who actually bought a piece from the Lilly for Target line, consider yourself lucky.  The madness around that frenzy somehow didn't seem worth it to me.  And those folks now selling it all on eBay for 3x the amount just doesn't sit well with me either.  I'll get off my soapbox now :)

Meanwhile, much like florals, denim is back in a big way.  Not an unusual concept for spring, but denim sure does make me smile- especially as a partner to my white jeans and flip flops!  (maybe someday?  it's STILL cold in Boston in my opinion) Here's my favs as of late:

Petite ladies, this one's for you.
Gap peplum top $39.99

Feels like a dream- love tencel!
Gap denim shirt $49.95
Gap tulip-back dress $69.95

Who doesn't love a basic shirt dress?
Target Belted Denim Shirt Dress $29.99
Go on, grab your denim and say hello to spring!

Lilly for Target

I sure do love when Target pairs up with designer lines- it's like a little taste of the runway without all the killer cost!  No doubt this will be a major win for Target, as they are joining forces with Lilly Pulitzer, the famous New Yorker turned Palm Beach, who exploded with colorful floral resort wear for the masses.  Her line tends to be pretty preppy, but you sure can't beat the use of color in classic shaped styles.  In my opinion, Target has needed this partnership- and I'm psyched to see how April 19th pans out.  Watch your email (or check out your local Target) to get a piece for yourself!

Here's a few things I've been can check out Target's lookbook for the collection here.

Strapless Nosey Posey Dress $34.00

Embroidered Tunic Camelia Orange $30.00
Espadrilles Upstream $24.00
Wristlet My Fans $20.00
Happy shopping, Lilly fans!

Fabulously Floral

I'm reminded of that scene in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada" when Meryl Streep asks in a staff meeting what they have on deck for spring.  And the eager staff member says, "Well, florals are big this year..." And Meryl so coyly says, "Florals, for spring?  Groundbreaking."

I snicker every time.

But the truth is, florals are everywhere for spring- every single year!

Here's my favorite flashy florals I've seen lately:
Love this for a spring wedding!
Asos Chi Chi London Midi Dress $105
Imagining these with a cute denim dress...
Target Layla sneakers $13.59
Precious for a spring event (first communion, baptisms, etc.)
Boden Pandora Skirt $148
Go on, find your floral and flaunt it!
