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 (Racked.com) 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!

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!

IMAG5232

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.

IMAG5230

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

IMAG5229

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

IMAG5228

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.

IMAG5227

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

IMAG5201

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.

IMAG5200

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

IMAG5199

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

Spring Summer 2013 Inspiration and Advertising video’s

A collection of video advertising campaigns for Spring/ Summer 2013, love the music and visual elements. Makes me excited for Spring and Summer clothing! Music to fashion, fashion to music I’m happy. The ASOS,  Missguided, Target and Topshop ad’s are my top ones out of the bunch, fun and fresh. And the Hermes advert is such a simple, yet classic idea! Reminds me of old children’s cartoon’s.

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!

IMAG5155

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.

IMAG5154

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.

IMAG5156

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.

IMAG5158

Neon cropped jacket- Mossimo

IMAG5162
Coral bag- very cute, think this was Merona- nice size and has a strap, was more coral in person.

IMAG5164

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. 

IMAG5165

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.

IMAG5166

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.

Who to follow on Instagram- Fashion World

Instagram is shaping the way we communicate It’s also changing the way we view fashion, making it even faster. Not only can you view runway collections on the likes of Elle.com, Style, or VogueUK, you now can type in a tag like #NYFW and up pops ‘live images from the runway. Fast fashion via Instagram.

My one true love was twitter, but I reckon a close second is Instagram. We’re able to see what people are actually doing at different days and points in life and share that with our family,friends and new followers/ friends through Instagram.

I’d love to share some instagrammer’s I follow!
