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.
Thanks for reading!

The only thing that makes me more excited than a great designer collaboration is an affordable one! Insert….Phillip Lim for Target!! I have been drooling over a Phillip Lim satchel for a while now and I can finally get my hands on one. There has been some criticism by us fashion snobs about some of the quality of the clothing from previous Target designer collections, but from the looks of this one, it appears well crafted. Here’s a sneak peek of the collection.
I am dying over this mini satchel. I love the structure of this bag and the honey gold color makes it a little more fun.
Your basic trench coat gets a cool update with baby blue accents. It’s so crisp and so clean!
Leather accents are going to be very on trend this fall and this navy number is adorable. The A-line silhouette and soft short sleeves keep the dress flirty and fun.
Leather moto jacket. Tuxedo pants. Yes, please!!!
Beautiful, asian-inspired, floral print dress! This dress stands out from all the rest with it’s cool asymmetric hemline.
This is the big boy to the mini satchel. I can’t decide which one I want…
This color combo is killer! What more can I say?

I have been wanting to pull the trigger and add a graphic sweatshirt to my closet but I like the idea of this fun sweater even more. It reminds me of the quirky sweaters I used to wear in the 80’s.
The Phillip Lim for Target collection has everything. Classics, whimsy, color, and fun. It hits stores September 15th! Mark your calendars because I have a feeling this line will sell out quickly.
