OOTD: Target Does It Again.

Shirt: Piperlime || Skirt: Target || Tights: Talbots || Coat: H&M || Shoes: {Given to me by a sorority sister :-)} || Sunglasses: Le Chateau || Headband: Charming Charlie || Necklace: Express || Earrings {old} || Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Temptress 

      The title of this blog post, "Target Does It Again," doesn't just refer to the fact that Target continues to come out with amazing (and affordable!) fashion and accessories. I'm also referring to the fact that my favorite Target location in Charlotte continues to provide me with my favorite setting to do blog pictures when I'm here at school! :-) This location (which I've used in several of my blog posts before) is the top of Target Metropolitan's parking deck, located very close to Uptown Charlotte. Honestly I think that this view just never gets old! A lot of times when I'm at this Target just getting groceries or running other errands I park on the fifth floor just so I can take a few minutes to pause, breath, and take in the amazing views.

     And of course I am had to wear something from Target in this post as well, which is this adorable striped skirt! I have seen skirts similar to this popping up at other stores during this season, but I don't think that I have found one as affordable as Target's, which was priced at $22! I knew when I saw it that I had to scoop it up for that price. This is such a great closet staple and I can't wait to see how many outfit combinations that I can build around it! I love the way that the material is so structured and how the skirt flairs out- it is so flattering to wear. If you can't tell I really don't have enough good things to say about it!

      I have never seen the TV show Gossip Girl before (although eventually I will watch it on Netflix, it's in my queue!), but from what I've seen of the fashion on the show I feel like this outfit is my take on a Gossip Girl inspired fall fashion (on a budget!). I felt very preppy and very city chic while wearing it. If I happened to be visiting NYC at all this season then I know I would pack this outfit with me!

  1. Love this skirt, I feel like it is a modern Audrey Hepburn look.


  2. Oh my gosh, LOVE this look on you!!

  3. I agree - very Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl! Beware, once you start that show its hard to stop .. I netflixed it a of couple months ago and watched all of season 1 in one weekend!

  4. That coat! I actually love your entire outfit and how cute you look posing (especially the jumping one, haha). But I love the pop of color that the coat gives. I am so excited for the weather to cool down in Southern California and wear layered outfits like this one!

  5. You are absolutely adorable! Love your look :)
