Target Twins - World Prints for Work and Weekend

Target Twins Style World Prints

Melissa of The Key to Chic and I were just talking about how the spring trends at Target are flying off the shelves!  I've seen the comments on Pinterest and Instagram about how shoppers are searching high and low for certain items because they are selling out so quickly.  So if you like something we're featuring for #TargetTwins, make sure you get it now!

For this week, our theme is World Prints.  A trend that has been around for a couple of years now is making a huge statement this spring.  A little mix of bohemian, bright colors, and repeating patterns, make wearing this trend great for the weekend.  But is it possible to wear this bold statement in the workplace?  See for yourself as this week I style World Prints for the workplace and Melissa styles World Prints for the weekend!

When I saw this Xhilaration print skirt at Target, I fell in love with it. Yellow is my favorite color and I don't own a bright yellow skirt, so I was excited to add this to my wardrobe.  Figuring out how I could style this for the working girl, was a bit of a challenge.  I wanted to show my unique fashion sense, but also keep it conservative.  Pairing a black blazer like this one from Marc by Marc Jacobs via Crossroads Trading Co. over a simple white blouse from Forever 21 will keep your look sophisticated.  A closed toed, but unique studded slingback from H&M can add femininity, and a roomy Mossimo tote will hold all your personal essentials.

Payless Saddle Shoes

I've expressed many times that I'm not really a flats girl, but sometimes I find a pair that I just can't live without.  And they make it a lot easier when I want to walk around the city!  I bought this cute saddle shoe pair from Payless last summer and I've only worn them a handful of times.  But it doesn't make me love them any less.

Saddle shoes evoke such a retro playful vibe and I like the emotional response they receive.  Most people want to know where I got them since vintage pairs can be hard to come by.  For this look, I kept it casual.  I am still such a fan of boyfriend blazers and this one from Urban Outfitters via Crossroads Trading Co. is a favorite.  I matched my Forever 21 blouse to my shoes and lightened up the color scheme with my vintage Coach Stewardess bag.  Are you a fan of saddle shoes?

Helloooo beautiful weather!!  I have been thoroughly enjoying the spring up here in Portland.  I've also been loving the thrift stores.  Everyone is spring cleaning and that means more good stuff for me. :)

You've seen this vintage jacket before with a dark olive green, and this time I lightened it up with a neon green.  I always love the way color pops against black and white.  Anything with a bright color pop always catches my attention.  For the rest of my look though, I kept it pretty casual and comfy with a pair of skinny jeans from American Eagle and the H&M sandals I can't remove from my feet.  Obsessed.  Fo realz.  Hope you all have been having a great week! <3
