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!

A few weeks ago I attended the launch party of a decadent truffles company called Cris’s Brigs. They specialize in Brazilian chocolate truffles (Brigadeiros) using an old family recipe. There were a variety of sinful flavors like passionfruit, pistachio, and little kiss. This was my first time having Brazilian truffles and I must say….they did not disappoint. It was a wonderful event held in the lounge of an upscale Buckhead apartment building with a large outdoor balcony with city views. Wine, chocolate, and a beautiful evening. What more could a girl ask for
Since it was a Brazilian truffle event I wanted to wear something vibrant to reflect the rich and colorful culture.

The Auto Show was in Atlanta this past weekend so my husband and I made a date night out of it. It was held at the Georgia Convention center downtown which I knew would be a considerable amount of walking, but it didn’t stop me from wearing my pumps. I wanted to sport my turquoise Tory Burch clutch because I absolutely love this rare find but I hardly ever use it. I formed by outfit around my clutch accessorizing my outfit with turquoise accents.
Some of the luxurious car brands were missing at the show this year but there were still some fascinating new cars. Kia featured some cool super hero car designs that were pretty amazing.
I have a soft spot for Mini Cooper’s and I love this Roadster!
And of course, one of my dream cars….the Audi RS5 Cabriolet!
There are only a few things that can get me up super early on a Sunday morning. First, catching an early flight to an exotic location. Second, a limited edition designer collection at an affordable price! Insert….Prabal Gurung for Target! I arrived right before the doors opened and had my choice of all the wonderful options. I walked a way with one adorable outfit (I will post at a later date) and the printed pumps featured in this outfit post.
I was heading out to my very first book club meeting. We read a very heartfelt novel called “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green. It is a story about two teenagers both dealing with their own battles with cancer and ultimately fall in love. It’s not a book I would have typically read, but I think that’s the point of a good book club. It allows you to explore all different types of books and takes you out of your book rut, so to speak. Anyway, I thouroughly enjoyed the book and the discussion with some wonderfully intelligent ladies over brunch and mimosas
