Summer Lovin’ at Target

Summer is upon us believe it or not it’s pretty much summer here where I am. Target has some amazing items coming in for the season.
I just got back from a trip to Panama in Central America for 5 weeks and that was the last time I nipped into Target to pick up a few clothing items for my trip. Been back almost two weeks and the variety of summer accessories, dresses, shorts, swimming costumes and now the new shoe line from Sam & Libby on ( has gotten me excited about summer.


I was looking for a new water bottle and opted for the Bobble bottle, but how funny is ‘The Anti Bottle’ by Vapur. The stock in patterned styles were almost sold out and this one caught my eye. They also had alot of solid colours in Green, Blue etc. Check them out here at Vapur 


I upgraded to the iphone5 this week and did pick up a case at Tmobile by Speck which is below. Target has a great selection of iPhone cases as seen below. All were from $24.99 to $34.99. They also stock cases by Xhiliration which range from $12.

My Speck case below:

These clutch bags remind me of the Balenciaga motorcycle style clutch- with the little stud detail and tassle.


Huge shopper bags – amazing! the Tropical print one is stunning! I’m definately going to pick that up at some point, they also had one in black and cream but another pattern.
The rattan bag below is massive and they had three styles. Would be great for the beach or using at the farmer’s market I imagine the one in Union Square, NY!



Now onto a few clothing items I spotted, there were so many pretty skirts & dresses in tribal, floral, stripes, polka dots that you can slip on with a denim vest/ jacket in the day or for evening a leather jacket and your done and out the door!




I shall be snapping away on my next trip to Target. I’d make sure to check the sale racks as I picked up a few items I had seen a month ago which had 50% off.


Things I’ve spotted in Target

I’ve been shopping a lot more frequently in Target the past few weeks as I’m off on a trip to Panama soon.

So been on the hunt for spring/summer clothes and have done a fair bit of trying on … took a few photo’s of new things I’ve seen in store yesterday and over last weekend, once I spot a new item in Target I’m on it and my new thing is actually trying clothes on! I  brought a few of the items below and some basics from Old Navy which I will blog in my next post, enjoy!


Green floaty skirt- around $24.99 – with a paperbag waist, would need to be worn higher on the waist or with a tight fitting tank/ camisole.


Mint coloured shorts, they also came in a light pink/ blush colour- $19.99 a bargain! Might go back and get these!


Tribal Romper shorts- around $22.99, this also came in a pink patterned style.


Striped high/low dress- again around $22.99- the neck detail was really cool, has a cut out on the back top section. Forgot to try this on.


Neon sandals- these also came in yellow and other patterns, but these stood out to me – around $15.,99


Grey sweater dress with neon trim and drawstring- this was in the sale around $19. Quite nice fit and would go well with or without leggings and flips flops or canvas flat.

Stripe sweater with bright coral stripes- really cute, oversized ssweatshirt with lace detail, around $15 in the sale, I brought this!! I got some military green linen shorts from Old Navy and this went well with it.


Leopard shirt dress with elastic waist and belt- really nice fit and easy to throw on with some sandals, around $27.99 and I brought this one


Peach knit jumper- around $21.99, really light weight knit, to throw on over a tank or plain tee.


Target -SpringTrend Finds

Today I nipped into Target and we decided to have a browse at the clothing, since last week when they seemed to be changing over their ranges for Spring/ Summer… they have gotten in some great items! I actually am seeing trends that I see on ASOS  for example the polka dot and printed denim, Camo pants/ jackets, sweaters with prints, neon, bralets, matching tops and bottoms in same print, lots of oversized sweatshirts, digitial print florals,.

Few photo’s of things I picked out and liked, ended up not buying anything as I’m on a spending ‘ban’ of clothes, even though I have my eye on some key items!


Bralet top which had a matching short pleated skirt – Merona

Camo stretch jeans/ pants- seen these a couple of times, but they feel nice to touch and have a ‘flip side’ reversible so are green and camo, two outfits in one pair.


Studded collar sheer blouse- these have been done by Topshop, Asos, Miss Selfridge, Primak in the UK- you name the store and they have been done over there.. finally they have some in Target, this was $22.99 and also came in a bright blue. The fabric wasn’t too brilliant though.


Camo Jacket- $34.99- a item I really want to get though the trend is only surfacing here in the States in mainstream shops.

I already have had a couple camo print coats over the past few years, but want one  similar to this, it’s a good weight for spring and seems sturdy enough, but still on the search. I’m not to fond of the drawstring waist.




Neon cropped jacket- Mossimo

Coral bag- very cute, think this was Merona- nice size and has a strap, was more coral in person.


Merona- Ostritch texture bags, loved all of these, esp the navy with brown trim, look like brilliant quality. Prices ranged from 15.99- 24.99  The wallets were really nice also. 


American flag backpack, so cute! $29.99. I just got a camo version for $8.98 a few weeks back, so would either wait to see if these go on sale. They also had some aztec, leopard print versions too.


Lastly I saw these patterned/ fluffy dog bed covers were on sale for $8.48 and they had two prints on sale, were $18.99.


NY LOVE- snapshots from my life in the city

I just moved from living in Brooklyn, NY for over two years. It’ll always be in my heart. Noone can ever feel how you feel living there, I can feel an ache in my heart looking at these photo’s

If I got the chance to go back I wouldn’t take a second thought. Here’s some love I experienced while there, just walking the streets you say ‘ I live in New York’ and I would often say wow, best time of my life.
