Spike and Rhinestone necklace: H&M (old, similar here). Mossimo Zip-front Peplum Jacket: Target. Classic Long-Sleeved (worn under): Rag & Bone. Swirl Print Clasp Closure Clutch Wallet: Target. Ponte pants: Juicy Couture. Crisscross front wedges: H&M (old, similar here or here). Foil iPhone case: Marc by Marc Jacobs.

3.23.15outfit-cu3Yup, Target always has some great items. Whenever I go in there for something else, I find my hand inexplicably reaching out to other items on the shelf. I WANT…and have to curb my enthusiasm. Scale back a little. Empty my cart of all the Mossimo sparkly belts, neck party bling, and adorable Gilligan & O’Malley lingerie that has suddenly leapt into it. And so it goes.

3.23.15outfit-cu4But I couldn’t resist this dreamy pastel mint peplum jacket [called “Fading Blue” on the Target website, go figure] – so feminine and pretty. It has a fabulous, chic silhouette that reminds me of Sunday brunches and Jane Austen novels. Maybe that’s just me. 3.23.15outfit-cu1Unlined, though – and I may add a lining in the future to make it a little more “finished” and stand up to multiple wearings.     3.23.15outfit-clutch3.23.15outfit-full2 And this swirly painterly box clutch. I don’t actually NEED another clutch…but this cried out to me. And pairing it with a clashing jacket seemed the right thing to do.

3.23.15outfit-cu2Please excuse the silly posing – I am trying to get my camera’s remote shooting function working on my iPhone, which means I am mostly staring at an iPhone screen to make sure everything’s in focus before I hit the shutter button. It’s a LIFESAVER when taking one’s outfit shots by oneself…but ends up having me looking the wrong way most of the time. :-/

Hope all of you are having a great start to the week!

3.23.15outfit-full3I know I did – though I truly did not want to get out of a cozy, snuggly bed this morning. Had sooooo many reasons not to 🙂
