I Feel Pretty | Self Controlled?

Today’s blog post is a testament to my self control.  Or lack thereof.  I’m really not sure.

On one hand, I told myself I wasn’t going to shop the 3.1 Philip Lim for Target collection.  But then I did.  On the other hand, I only bought two pieces from it.

Self control?  Yes and no.

There were WAY more pieces that I wanted but I managed to limit it to just two – the blouse and the tote.

This outfit is also what I wore for a lunch “blate” with Sheaffer on Monday.  What could possibly be more appropriate to wear on a blogger date than a Target designer collab?  🙂

Avery Lane Boutique Giveaway

Although it’s not quite cool enough yet, later in the season I’ll be taking the chill off this outfit by adding this houndstooth hooded jacket from Avery Lane Boutique.  It’s just the right weight and I love how the bold pattern mixes with florals.  It will also look cute with colored denim and ankle boots.

    Good self-control, but I can see why you had to buy those two pieces, they are great! Oh, how I miss shopping (in person) at Target. Lucky! Love your coat too.

    Oh heavens! The coat, the bag, I’m obsessed with both! Love, love, love the zipper detail on the pants too. Super cute styling!

    Your shirt and bag are even prettier in person….and your pants…and your shoes…AND YOU! Seriously! So happy to have you in my life. You are beautiful inside and out, and the perfect person to have a blate with!

    I passed that blouse yesterday and it stopped me in my tracks! I am trying not to buy anything until after the wedding/home projects are finished!

    I think you did really well only buying two pieces! And you’ll definitely get plenty of wear out of both of them! I somehow abstained from buying anything from the collection, but I’m still lusting after the gorgeous bags!

    You are far better than I my friend. I planned to go out, and then didn’t. And then stalked everyone’s goodies…and will now either pray to win something or buy a piece at a ridiculously inflated price via kijiji. Not so smart.

    Looking gorgeous! xo

    I would say you had self control. I was not able to get the tote that I wanted because I refuse to part take in the store frenzy. I was able to order a couple items online and will wait and see how they work out. The houndstooth jacket is perfect for fall- love it!

    What a Gorgeous Blouse Alison – the Colors are perfect for Fall. Those Pants are Sexy & Sharp, not your regular Khakis. And I love your heels.

    I am also wearing Khakis & a Blouse today. Great minds think alike. Check it out.

    I only bought two bags, one of which I am giving to a friend. I told myself that was the only thing I was allowed to buy, even though I wanted that top you got!! Super cute! And can we talk about that coat? This one is gonna be a staple this season!

    Ha! Self-control…it was really hard to do that on Sunday morning at Target!! I grabbed a few bags for myself (which I really wanted) and two clothing items. You know, the quality is good, so why not?!

    I almost got both pieces that you did, but settled for only one…the leopard skirt.

    You know, I saw that blouse in Target and thought to myself how pretty it is, but for some reason didn’t buy it. I’m not quite sure what I was thinking. It looks even prettier on you than it does on the hanger and I love the heels you paired it with! I think you made two really great decisions with those pieces, and kudos to you for not letting yourself go overboard (which we all know is way too easy to do at Target!)

    You did good!! I ordered more than I should have because of FOMO (fear of missing out!) I have not received the items yet, but I am pretty sure I will be returning some of the pieces! Loving the bags from this collection though! I love the color theme in this outfit and the way you styled these pieces!
    This cape-jacket from Avery Lane is a dream!! I’d love to get my hand son it:-) Hope I win!! Have a wonderful day!

    I shopped the Phillip Lim for Target collection this weekend, also- and definitely had to reign myself in, lest I buy up everything on the racks! I’m actually featuring the large black carryall in a blog today- love it.

    You look lovely- digging that gorgeous blouse. 🙂
