The weather here has been picture perfect. I was heading out to book club to discuss our latest book called The Book Thief. This is a beautiful coming-of-age story set in Nazi Germany that will be a major motion picture next month. I wanted to wear something bright and fun while the weather still permits. I elected for a neon & floral combination. It’s not something that obviously goes together but I think it works.
These baggy pants are so comfortable. They feel like pajama pants and they are probably the only stylish type of pants out there that you can get away with an elastic waistband…lol!
I picked up this fun, vibrant top at Forever 21 months ago and finally found something to wear it with. Does that happen to you a lot too? I often purchase pieces I like that I don’t readily have something to pair it with. It will then sit in my closet for months (or years) before I finally drag it out. Then, of course, my husband thinks it’s something new that I just bought and I’m like “No. Really. I’ve had this for months but just never wore it!’.
Finally, these zipper booties have been a staple in my closet for years now. I wear them to spice up an outfit, day or night.
Unless you have been living under a rock (or not reading my blog) you would know that yesterday was the launch of Phillip Lim for Target. The buzz around this collection made me think about another amazing Target designer collaboration, Prabal for Target. I had purchased this outfit in the winter and had never worn it! I was attending a social event last week and thought it would be the perfect transitional fall outfit for an Atlanta evening.
Since it’s still reaches close to 90 degrees during the day, wearing shorts and a sheer blouse kept me cool. The blazer kept my shoulders warm while being inside the overzealously air-conditioned indoors.
I must say I did step outside of my comfort zone with these bright florals. I haven’t liked florals since middle school when I was forced to wear floral Laura Ashley dresses to special occasions. Those days are clearly over and this psychedelic outfit is a far cry from any dainty floral print dress.
I was able to peruse some of the pieces from the new Phillip Lim for Target collection and was pretty impressed. I especially loved the handbags and the floral print shirtdress. Look forward to seeing my pieces in a future post. If you haven’t seen the collection, you can view it here.
