Totally from Target!

Hey everyone! So there's no inspiration photo today... and that's because my outfit today isn't my interpretation of a previous look. Instead, today's outfit comes Totally from Target-- everything I'm wearing (including my sandals) is from my favorite place on Earth.. I mean.. Target.

So if it isn't totally obvious, these pictures for my blog have been taken with my BlackBerry camera. Kinda crappy quality, particularly in this one. I apologize for the blurriness! That said, I think you can still get a feel for the outfit as a whole. Again, skirt + shirt + sandals = all from Target.

Here is a close up so you can see the detail on the skirt. For this picture, I added a magenta tissue Cardigan.

Putting it together: To start off, I'm obsessed with this skirt! Purple and green is my favorite color combo, and this skirt makes full use of it. The design gives off a paisley feel, but it's not to busy or jarring. Also, it's a cotton/spandex blend so you know it's going to be comfortable. Just love it!

You can wear several different color tops with this skirt. I went with the darker purple used in the design, but using that pretty lime green or magenta color would also look great. Even wearing a white top would work-- making it a more summer-y, lighter, beachy look.

These sandals were SUCH a good find! They were super inexpensive, and I've gotten so much wear out of them. I've had these sandals for about 2 years, and they're still a key piece in my wardrobe.

I hope this outfit proves the point that you don't need to spend big bucks to have an expensive look. I've had people ask me if this skirt was Pucci, Lilly Pulitzer, and even Tory Burch. It's always fun to see their expressions when I say it's actually from Target.

Make it your own:
Skirt: Target $26.99
Tank: Target $9
Sandals: Target (Similar) $15


  1. I have those sandals! I wear them almost every day. Love them. And that skirt is amazing!! Nice outfit ;)

  2. OH man I love pulling the Target card when someone asks if I'm rocking Kate Spade! It just means we have a seriously keen eye for fashion and can pull an outfit together that looks fierce at any price point-crucial!

  3. Christa, YES! These sandals were one of the best Target purchases I've ever made. I get so much use out of them!

    Katie- so true. People's facials expressions when they hear "Target" instead of "Nordstrom" is priceless. I have many proud moments like these.

  4. Jess, I just bought this skirt after reading your post! Cute find!

  5. Sarah, that makes me so happy! I know you're going to love it :)
