time to unplug

I need to be honest for a minute, 
writing this blog is not always easy, but has always been fun for me, 
until recently.

It has been a little bit of a struggle to keep up with blogging, 
for once in my life I have a ton of content, I have a job I love in a creative field 
& I actually get dressed everyday!
I thought my train commute into NYC every morning would help me be able to get posts done 
and up but it has proven to be more frustrating than fruitful.

1st there is NO INTERNET, my hot spot barely works 
so it takes a full 45 minutes to upload pictures let alone link anything. 
I have written tons of posts that have not saved and had to completely rewrite,
it has been draining and not feeding my creativity like I need it to be.

Not to mention since turning 31 I have been exhausted!
Too much partying & I somehow hurt my foot so I have been limping around NYC...
the struggle is real these days
This meme that my friend/coworker Olivia shared with me is SO ACCURATE:

I have decided to take some time and unplug from blogging/social media for a little while, 
maybe a week, maybe a little longer.

See you soon(ish)

XXO 20 Years of Design for All @ Target!

Well this certainly crept up on me!
I feel like I should have gotten a newsletter notification or something...
Target brought back 20 designer collaborations today!


I would also love to check out this design book!

So many amazing brand resurrected from the fashion grave!


Here are a few of my favorites!


 I love that lace number but this grey tweed spiky beauty was a surprise fave in store:

A little too busty:


The Zac Posen collections was GONE when I was in store:

I did find one of the Zac Posen dresses in store but it was sadly not my size, 
but it is SO CUTE & well constructed:





I do love these heart bags!

I was interested in the bright colors of the Issac Mizrahi collection, 
especially since this is not one I shopped when it originally came out:
 I was also interested in shopping the Thakoon collection, 
also also before my insane obsession with Target design collabs:

The t-shirt in both colors and the skirt from the Thakoon collection were my faves, 
and the only ones that came home with me:
I figured I could mix match the patterns and get more wear out of them as separates!

The Missoni collection was pretty fully stocked in the front of the store: 


Lots of Lilly Pulitzer too: 

& Hunter bags:

I still love my 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target bags and my store was stocked!

Marimekko seemed to be pretty sold through in stores:

 The kids clothes in the Harajuku Mini collection were so cute!

It was so interesting to see which collaborations they brought back 
& what pieces they decided to rerelease, 
I can't help but feel like the re-release was better stocked then the original releases 
(especially with Missoni and Lilly) 

Re-shopping the Missoni x Target collab this morning brought back some interesting memories, 
I was lucky enough to get the pieces I really wanted the first time around 
and continue to wear them on the regular!


What I Wore: glasses- Faniel Eyewear c/o 10/10 Optics, lips- Jordana "Honey" & MAC "Chatter-box", eyeshadow palette- Pinky Rose "Runway", earrings & necklace- Julie Vos, top- vintage military, cardigan- Missoni for Target, pants- Walmart, shoes- vintage



Happy Anniversary to Target & Happy Shopping!
