Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

C&C California_Bauble Bar_Peter Pilotto for Target_Tory Burch (2) When the Peter Pilotto for Target collabo dropped, I was still vacationing in Cali. And with a flight to catch that Sunday morning, there was no way I was making my way to any Target. So after coming home from a night out in LA that Saturday night, I quickly checked Target.com to see if any of the items were available. After a few tries, I managed to finagle two items into my shopping cart; this skirt being one of the items. Lucky for me, I had a runner back in Boston so I was able to score a few more items, yay! Which means that this will be the first installment in a series of posts dedicated to this collaboration.

The marrying of bright colors, stripes and florals on this skirt creates a gorgeous print. I love color and print, so this skirt was a match made in heaven! Not to mention the pencil silhouette and vertical stripes makes this piece pretty flattering. I opted to go all black for the remainder of outfit to let the skirt take center stage. Couldn’t head off to work without adding a hit of sparkle, brought to you by my newest bauble.

Outfit Details:

Tissue Turtleneck: C&C California from Bloomingdale’s Outlet, $12 (on clearance from $58). J.Crew carries a similar style on sale for $29.99.

Necklace: Bauble Bar, $40.

Pencil Skirt: Peter Pilotto for Target, $34.99. This item is completely sold out (sigh). Here are a few fun pencil skirts to check out: (1) asos, $60.22; (2) Kohl’s: Apt 9, $26.40 (sale); and (3) J.Crew Factory, $84.50.

Opaque Tights: The Limited, $10. No longer available online, but visit Lord & Taylor for a pair that’s on sale at $13.50/pair. Use code STYLE thru 3/10 and save an additional 15%.

Booties: Tory Burch, $190. This was a Christmas present to myself two years ago. Although a bit of a splurge, I did wait until it went on sale and saved over 50% off the original price. Worth the purchase since it has survived two winters already! As an alternative at a lower price point, I’m digging these Nine West wedge booties from Macy’s, $69.50 (sale); additional sizes at Nine West, $52.49 (sale). These Seychelles from Piperlime fit the bill as well, $64.97.

    I was on the fence about this collab, so I didn’t end up getting anything. Love how you styled this skirt though! Such a fun combo of patterns!
