Things I love:  Week O’Nautical and Target collaborations!  So!  We’re kicking off WON 2019 with my Vineyard Vines for Target haul!  Half the fun of these collaborations is stalking your favorites pieces and hunting them down.  I was somehow able to hit up my local store on the day of the release to go stalk.  I ended up coming home with 2 dresses and a blanket.  All 3 pieces are super nautical, very preppy and obviously my 3 top picks from the collection.

I knew the fashion would be the first to blow out of stock so I zoned in on those first.  The white dress is a seersucker-like fabric with an adorable navy and white ribbon belt… which you know I’ll be re-using ;).  The navy and white striped pullover shift dress is so versatile, and I was really impressed with the quality.  It’s more of a material like you’d find on a golf shirt, and it has pockets!  It’s just a super easy piece for the summer.  I can wear to work, the golf course, the pool, the lake, you name it!

These Target collabs always do a good job on the home pieces, and if I had more budget, I would of come home with way more of it.  A red, white and blue blanket has been something I wanted to drape over my papasan chair to dress it up with some summer holiday decor.  I also really loved the wood trays and the whale hooks.  The tumblers are also a great little item if you just wanted something cute and practical.

I want to go back for the cute pet bandanas (which you’ll see all over IG if you search the hashtag #vineyardvinesfortarget).  I also really like that beach chair, and I’ve been wanting one for lake days.  It would also pair really well with that whale shaped pool float, which I also need a new one of.  So if I need these items anyways, why not get some exclusively cute ones from Target which are priced pretty darn well.

You can view the entire release on Target’s website and shop what’s still available.  If there’s something you have your eye on and is in my local store, hit me up, I’ll go get it for you 🙂  And just to refresh, Week O’Nautical is how I count down to our patriotic holidays, by wearing red white and blue all week in a nautical fashion… see previous posts and how loosely I follow this theme haha.

Pups like being nautical too!

Happy Lunar New Year!  I’m kinda missing the parade that used to pass by my College Ave appt in State College on this festive day.  So I guess I’ll celebrate with an Asian influenced OOTD.

For my 4th fit I updated my ‘merica shorts with this year’s version from Target.  Have to have stripes with those stars, so add in this one shoulder bodysuit from mark.

Nailed It: Lilly Pulitzer for Target Essie First Timer

I can’t stop.  Something about this Lilly for Target that just has me obsessing!  Especially in the Essie collaboration on the coordinating nail colors.  You already know I’m head over heels for Borrowed and Blue (as seen here) but I’m totally smitten for Essie First Timer too!  Now this shade I already owned from when it was originally released for resort 2013.  Since I’m obsessing over this Lilly for Target line I figured it was time to pull out First Timer.

What I love about this shade is that it’s bright but not too bright, green but not too green and creamy oh so creamy!  It has a great aqua tone to it so the green isn’t to green.  I forgot how much I loved this shade!  It’s just the pop of color I needed!  I love it just clean on the nail, no need for nail art or an accent nail (not that Essie Gold Nuggets from the Lilly Pulitzer for Target collab wouldn’t look GREAT as an accent nail).

Lucky for me I scored this Lilly For Target Upstream Jumper in my size as a return!  I love the navy and white print paired with Essie First Timer.  I also found this super cute paper fedora in the dollar bins (only it was $3).  I think I have the perfect Memorial Day outfit with these 3 together!  Thanks #targetstyle

Did you pick up any of the Lilly For Target Essie Collaboration Shades?  I’ll say it again these shades are all you need for your spring and summer mani/pedi needs.  I just can’t get over how smitten I am with this Lilly for Target collection.  I totally should be pleased with what I got but I can’t stop.  I’m just throwing this out there… I’m totally ISO’ing for the plazzo pants (boom boom, my fans or fan dance!) and maybe the Upstream Pom Pom Shorts and maybe the Boom Boom Satin dress aaaaaand that super cute lemon juicer and stir sticks.  My gosh I can’t stop!
