Since I bought three things with Lilly Pulitzer’s Nosey Posey print, I decided, hey what the heck … let’s throw it all on at once and see what happens.
Though I love each piece separately, I probably won’t regularly wear all three together. It’s a little too matchy matchy for me, but it looked cuter than I thought it would. And I felt very bright and spring-y!
Outfit details & Shopping Ideas:
Top, scarf & flip flops – Lilly Pulitzer for Target

Here’s a few other bright & spring-y chicks!
Sabina of Ocean Blue Style is looking so chic in her hot pink ensemble and black and white moto coat.
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Target/designer collaborations, so when I saw this Issac Mizrahi for Target dress at the flea market in my size and in perfect condition, I grabbed it. And can I just add it cost less than my latte that day?
I thought it would be fun to try to style it for a party, for work, and for the weekend, so this is what I came up with.
I’m excited to introduce Cappelli Straworld’s new Pack A Hat! This chic hat packs away ingeniously into a cute little wristlet bag to carry with you whenever you go. Best of all, thanks to the opaque material the hat has a UPF 50+ rating to protect our skin against skin cancer and premature aging. How many times have you ended up walking out in the sunshine for longer than you expected, wishing for a cute and protective sun hat to go? Your wish is granted with Pack A Hat.
For only $25 you get a chic hat with a 50+UPF rating and the cute wristlet tote that it packs away into. Perfect for a vacation, a day at the beach, a picnic, a festival, or to keep with you for anytime the sun comes out. How about keeping a Pack A Hat in your desk at work for lunchtime walks? Along with the hat, the tote can carry your money, keys, phone, and make up. This hat and tote set is available in several fashionable colors and is shown here in natural. It has a pretty subtle gold shimmer to it that I love. Be sure to usethis link to order and get free shipping!

Disclosure: I was sent Pack A Hat as a present to review. All opinions as always are my own.
And since I have hats on the brain (as well as on my head) …
here are three very different and all very chic hat looks from last week’s link up:
Sandy of Sanda a la Mode and her friend look like lovely visions in their feminine dresses and cute hats.
Monika of Style is my Pudding is rocking this adorable flower adorned beret. Monika is always the epitome of funky chic!
Lauren of Punky Little DIYer never fails to make me smile and remember my Goth/Industrial/Punk days. She worried if this outfit was a bit too Nightmare on Elm Street, but Freddy never looked this chic!
Time to party, Dolls! Please link back. Don’t forget to visit and comment on other linker uppers for a fun Friday love fest!
This month’s theme for The Fab 40’s was … JUMPSUITS!
But before we jump right in, I wanted to say a big thanks to everyone who expressed interest in joining our little group. We were so flattered and were tempted to open it up to everyone, but then we felt a bit overwhelmed at the organizing involved and decided to keep it small and manageable. I hope everyone understands. We know there are so many great 40-something fashion blogs out there and we totally support all of you! Hurrah for all of us who keep showing the world how totally FAB 40 can be!
Now let’s jump into jumpsuits!
I haven’t had a jumpsuit since high school, so shopping for one now was an adventure. I didn’t want to spend too much on this trendy look so I hit up Fovever 21 and got this fun jumpsuit. I ended up actually loving it. What do you think, Dolls?
It’s strapless, but I doubt I’ll actually wear it that way. Well, maybe beachside!
I had planned to add one of my crochet cardigans for a totally boho look but it just ended up looking shapeless. I thought this tailored cropped jacket looked more pulled together.
Another Target designer collaboration, another cray cray Sunday morning of shopping fun! And what a collection of summery fun! Big kudos to Target & Lilly Pulitzer for including plus sizes. Personally, I think every collection should. Lilly Pulitzer for Target – be warned, there’s a lot sold out already.
And sure I got a little carried away! Everything was so bright, Palm Beach-y, and fun! Here’s my haul ….
Part of the fun for me is getting there early and chatting with the other fashionistas in line. Here we are anxiously waiting and peering through the sliding door!
This first thing I ran for was this blue tote which I wanted more than anything and it was sold out online. My Target only had 2 of each color, so being first in line really paid off.
The purse rack at 8:03 …
The selection at my store was a bit disappointing but I certainly found more than enough to make me very happy!
Dressing room selfies …
This pretty strapless dress was very nice fabric and even had a built in shelf bra.
Side note: I know some people complain about the quality of the Target/designer collaborations, but I’ve always been pleased. I think it’s just a matter of taming your expectations. Of course you’re not going to get full designer quality. What are you going to get is decent quality, designer style, and Target prices! Hello? Good enough for me!
This jumpsuit was fun …
But I liked the palazzo pants even better …
I didn’t even take the time to button up this cute lace top! I felt bad because this cute young gal really wanted the small size too and I got there first. I really tried not to like it too much so she could have it, but I couldn’t help myself. It came home with me.
Also loved this gauze tunic. I really wanted the orange but our store only had the blue and hey, it matched my tote I was so proud of getting!
I also came home with this V-neck floral top. This is an XS in the picture and too tight, so I went up to the S. (Sizes seemed true to expectation. I ended up with small in everything.)
Couldn’t you die how cute this pineapple zipper is?
The sheath dresses have that cute zipper too!
I also got flip flops and scarves! Very fun shopping day for me! How did you dolls do? What did you think of the collection? You’ll definitely be seeing quite a few Lilly Pulitzer outfit posts from me soon!
As a pear-shape, I’ve always stayed away from light colored pants. But I keep seeing you dolls rocking your white jeans (and it’s the next HIWM challenge) so I figured it was time to step out of my comfort zone and give some white jeans a try!
A few hints if you’re curvy on the bottom too and shopping for white jeans …
Hint #1 Tame your expectations. These will never be your go-to black pants or your flattering dark wash jeans.
Hint #2 Don’t try on anything in a junior store or junior sizes, or very light weight super stretchy fabric. Just trust me.
Hint #3 Prepare to try on a lot of pants that day. Of course if you start where I stopped, you might be luckier. I ended up with The Loft Curvy Straight Leg Jean.
What do you think?
Wore this casual look on a day trip to Carmel with the hubby.
Perfect for festivals and concerts and other summery events. Hey, there’s still one more weekend of Coachella. What are you waiting for? Or you could just dress up and play Coachella at home. (Just me?)
Kushyfoot is a hosiery company dedicated to making fashion more comfortable. That’s a mission statement that I can definitely get behind! They sent me a delightful package of Spring Essentials to try out.
One of my favorite ideas is Kushyfoot’s Flats To Go! Super light and foldable or rollable flats to carry with you when you’re sporting your most impractical clicks.
Just stick these life savers in your purse and put them on when your feet just can’t take those heels for a minute longer!
