OOTD: The Target Multi-Print Ankle Pant

Target Labwork Multi Print Ankle PantThose of you who have been following the blog for awhile already know that I love Target.  It is absolutely one of my favorite places to shop.  I go there every weekend.  Sometimes I have specific reasons to go…. sometimes I just go to look around.  But my weekend does not feel complete until I’ve made it there!

Target Labwork Multi Print Ankle PantSo when I was on a mission to find the perfect printed pants a few months ago, Target was one of the places that I decided to check out.  I must admit that I’ve really taken to their clothes over the past few years.  Perhaps it’s because they’ve started to partner with some pretty fabulous fashion designers…  But regardless… whatever it is, they have definitely stepped up their fashion game!

Target Labwork Multi Print Ankle PantTake these fabulous pants for example….  I completely fell in love with the print as soon as I saw it!  The pastel colors and swirl patterns made this look such a unique twist on the printed pant!

Target Labwork Multi Print Ankle PantI decided to pair a simple white blazer and tee with the look to ensure the print was the true focal point. Overall,  I think it turned out pretty good.  Added bonus value: The pants were so affordable ($34.99 at the time and I just checked online – now on clearance for $12.24)….  not to mention that this look (and pant) transfers easily from day to night.Target Labwork Multi Print Ankle Pant

Jacquard Print Pants

Banana Republic Jacquard Print PantMy latest obsession has definitely been the jacquard print pant. Maybe on some level this is my fashion subconscious beginning to plan for the transition to fall….  as I have been on a real mission to pick up some of these bad boys lately.

Banana Republic Jacquard Print PantI did have a few swing and misses of course, prior to settling on a couple of pairs that I really liked. I initially went after a pair from J. Crew Factory (in my typical J. Crew size) but somehow not being able to pull them up over my thighs severely hindered that plan!  ** On a somewhat related side rant… When will we see consistent sizing from at least within the same designer? Come on already! *

Banana Republic Jacquard Print PantAnyway, of course my outrage only fueled my obsession to have a pair even more.  Luckily my fashion hunt landed on several other jacquard print pants that I adored.

Banana Republic Jacquard Print PantThis particular pair is from Banana Republic.  I really love the print and the color combo on these.  While I wore them to work with a more traditional button down shirt, I can see many other options for these pants that would work outside of the office.  I’ll be trying out some of those soon.  I love that these pants are a great transition piece and just a cool new twist on the modern trouser!

The Cap Toe Pump

J Crew Cap Toe PumpThe cap toe pump has been getting rocked hard for at least a year or more BUT believe it or not, this is my first pair!  I’m not quite sure why I waited so long to grab these beauties up.  I mean… I’ve always adored them on other people and there is no question that they are a classic and glamorous look!

J Crew Cap Toe PumpI think what I love most about these shoes is that they are simple yet versatile.  They can be just as easily worn in the office, as out for a mid-morning brunch (or baby shower — see below) or on a night out with the girls!  Yep – pointy toe shoes are clearly back and the cap toe makes the come back even better!

J Crew Cap Toe PumpI grabbed this pair during a recent J. Crew Final Sale.  I was a little unsure about the color combo (pink and coral) but I must admit I fell in love as soon as they arrived in the mail.

Zara TeeFor my “inaugural” wear, I decided to pair these heels with my boyfriend jeans and a tee.  My plan was to just run a few errands in this look but after a longer than usual shopping session, I ended up wearing it to a baby shower that I had later that day.  (Rave reviews on the heels = can’t wait to rock them again!!)

What I’m Wearing: Zara Tee, Zara Distressed Boyfriend Jeans, J. Crew Snakeskin Cap Toe Heels, Zara Mixed Pearls, Vintage Fendi Tote

Where Am I: Charleston Row Shops

Are you rockin’ cap toes right?  If so, Metallic or Non?

OOTD: The Pink Jersey Dress

Ann Taylor Jersey DressI’ve never really been a huge fan of the jersey dress.  Not that I was a jersey dress hater necessarily but… I just never really gravitated to them. Some jersey dresses can look a little *ahem* “inexpensive” at times and they have a nasty habit of clinging to all of the wrong places!  (That = not cute my friends)!

Ann Taylor Jersey DressBut my recent Ann Taylor shopping haul may have helped me turn the corner on my jersey dress opposition!

Ann Taylor Jersey DressI picked up this find during Ann Taylor’s recent semi annual sale.  Regular price $98.  I got it for $16!!  Yes – $16.  But, the crazy thing is… it was a complete toss up!  I really wasn’t expecting to finding anything.  I mean, I was on the hunt for a few good dresses (I’ve been majorly obsessed with wearing dresses and skirts to work lately) but let’s be honest, by the time you get to most semi-annual sales, there is usually little of interest left or if it is of interest… it is not in your size!  But somehow, the shopping fairies were on my side this time!

Ann Taylor Jersey DressAnd I am glad that they were… this dress may be one of my favorites!  Besides being my favorite color, I absolutely love how it hugs all of my curves… but not in an unflattering or sleazy way.  It is the perfect!  I added the gold belt and mint shoes for a little more pop and…  there you have it…  a great day to night look!

Ann Taylor had a super awesome semi-annual sale last week and I can only describe my participation in it as…   well me simply losing my plum mind ( plum – that is what people say right?)!!

Ann Taylor Floral Pencil SkirtI ended up grabbing up 2 pencil skirts, 3 dresses, 2 pair of super cute printed cropped pants, and 2 printed tops – all for less than $150! That’s about $15 for each piece!!! For items that were on average $100 each!!!  Woo-hoo!!!  You just couldn’t ask for any better!

Zara Pink BlazerOf course I’m all over florals at the moment, so I just couldn’t pass up a chance to increase my floral skirt collection!!!! Regular price $88 – I paid $15.  Yes!

Ann Taylor Pink Floral Pencil SkirtYou’ll be seeing more of my finds in future posts….  and you know what?  — this may just be my favorite time of year, next to Christmas of course!  The end of summer deals have been crazy!!!!  (Yes, I’m guilty….  major hauls at Zara, J.
