When Peter Pilotto meets Midnight Velvet boots, and I end up staying at my in-laws house for a weaken, outfits like this happen!

The dress is one of the three pieces from the Peter Pilotto for Target collection that I bought last Sunday, and to my excitement, it doesn’t need too much styling! It speaks for itself. Heck it almost wears itself 🙂

The boots are from Midnight Velvet, and I only got them, because I CAN’T WAIT FOR SPRING. I am actually willing to skip spring and go straight into summer! That’s how desperate I am. Plus, I live in Minnesota, so I am going to fit right in in these boots this summer. The downside is they are faux leather, I personally prefer real leather footwear. But they are white, floral and cowboy. And if you can tell, they are high enough for me to prance around in all that snow. Another thing that bothers me about these boots is the smell. I’ve been sent a purse before that had a similar problem, and it took forever to get rid of it, in fact, I think it still smells, laying there in my garage (I am embarrassed to donate it!)

Anyways, I can’t wait to style these boots once spring comes around, and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog! I have a couple exciting giveaways coming up! And if you want to, check out the Midnight Velvet on Social Media: FacebookTwitterGoogle+YouTubeBeautyBlogPinterest

Days off are blogging days. That’s how they are classified at our house. They are days I get up early, make Sam’s lunch and see him off to work. I often skip breakfast and spend the entire morning in bed with my laptop. I catch up on blogs, my Social Media channels, and any shows that may be on Netflix or Hulu. This week I am catching up and watching live New York Fashion Week.

I often work out on my days off, and am really looking forward to checking out the new Barre DVDs that I got my hands on! I do it all in the basement, or in my living room, where is more light.

Tuesdays are also Twitter chat days, and once a month it’s #FashionUnfold, while other days, it’s just random chats, usually British! But I love my UK blogger friends and talking to them. Twitter keeps me connected to the whole world.

Sometimes I have coffee dates with friends. Honey and Rye has been on my list for a while now. But no one wants to go there with me! Maybe you? Sometimes I go shopping and buy things, but sometimes I don’t need anything.

This week I have hope. This Tuesday, after having checked out the weather for the next 10 days, I saw something promising in the forecast – 35F! That is above and beyond what I’ve been hoping for for many weeks now, along with thousands of others here in the North Pole Minnesota.

Tuesdays are also my days to take pictures. There are a lot of new additions to my wardrobe that need to be styled, worn, photographed. I do dishes and laundry in between. The bathroom needs cleaning too.

Some nights I am lucky and we go get Papa Murphy’s for dinner, sometimes we have left overs. But either way, I am always so happy when Sam comes home!

What are your days off like?

Peter Pilotto for Target – Scores and Looks

Peter-Pilotto-For-Target-Skirt

Target collaborations can be a hit or miss. But if you’ve been shopping them for a while, you know which ones to shop, and which ones to skip. Having set my alarm for 7.30 am the night before, I was seriously planning on being at the store in my pajamas by 8 am! (That’s what I did for the last collaboration – Philip Lim). And then the snooze button happened. To make the long story short, I didn’t make it to the store until after 4 pm. I’ll be honest, I expected to see a sad piece hanging all by itself on a rack, but, to my surprise, it was all there! Well, maybe not all of it, but a lot of it. Now, some of you know I am participating in the Thrifty Threads 365 challenge, so you are probably wondering why am I spending all this money in retail? There is a loop hole in our challenge, or an exception if you want to call it that. You are allowed to use gift cards. And that’s exactly what I did!

Today I am only going to show you the skirt. It was one piece I wasn’t sure about. Styling it can be challenging. But the pockets sold me! As you could probably guess, I am hoping to buy the top that goes with it, also seen on Diane Krueger, later when the collection goes on sale.

First of all the entire collection is mostly polyester, it’s made in China. Personally, the black, yellow, blue and white color palette was a little off. Less structured pieces, looked baggy and unflattering. I also wish that  when creating such collections, the designers would show us how to style pieces. Yes, it’s fun to be all dressed in Peter Pilotto, but?

What did you think of this collaboration? Did you buy anything? How are you styling it?
