Doug and I recently scouted out a new location in Newburyport for photos — I just loved the rugged backdrop against the fancier heels and skirt. It was also kind of hidden behind a parking lot, so I was able to dodge any funny looks from the visiting tourists!
When I first saw this midi skirt I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. It seemed pretty long! But once I tried it on I absolutely loved it. With a jacket and pumps I could dress it up for work, or I could leave it dressed down like I’m wearing here. I also followed this new “French rule” for wearing skirts and heels — flats for skirts above the knee, and heels for skirts below the knee. These Peter Pilotto for Target heels were a total impulse buy a few years back (similar styles here, here and here) and although I don’t wear them often, sometimes with the right outfit they are totally on point.
I really love it when Target has it’s designer collaborations, because usually there are a few great pieces in every collection. I always seem to have great luck snagging a few items at my local stores, perhaps its my far proximity to a big city. Anyway, when Peter Pilotto for Target came out I was a little disappointed–I don’t typically wear neon neoprene crop tops. However, I do love good neon piece and snagged this top. The cold weather has kept this shirt in my closet for the past few months, but I’ve finally pulled it out of hibernation now that spring is here to stay! I also hopped on the colored-aviator wagon, but baby stepped my way in with these H&M shades. Ray-Ban makes some awesome pink and blue versions, but H&M has blue-green and gold ones for a fraction of the price!
I wonder what the next Target collaboration will be!
