Earlier in the week I went to my happy place aka Target determined to try on clothes with my two boys in tow. I timed it so they had both just napped, and it worked out pretty well. It would be cool if the dressing room floors were made out of that rubbery stuff at playgrounds, just a thought. Anywho...I headed straight for the Who What Wear display, which rolls out new pieces every month. The first thing that caught my eye was this bell sleeve blouse - it is so on point! My store had one on the mannequin but I couldn't find any on the racks. I'll be checking back for this one!
Yesterday I had the chance to scope out the new Superga x Target collection, featuring lace-up sneakers in classic colors like white, navy and black (faux) leather as well as fun stars and stripes motifs, perfect for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. I highly recommend checking these out: They look identical to "real" Superga sneakers, including the tag...as far as I can tell, it's identical to the tag they put on all their sneakers, which is nice for us Target shoppers who don't want to give away our little budget shopping secrets!
Supergas are a cult favorite - celebs and streetstyle stars alike love these designed-in-Italy kicks. As far as I can tell without actually wearing them and putting them to the test is that they're the the same as shoes that cost twice as much. I bought Supergas once and actually returned them because I didn't feel they were worth the price (and they kinda made my feet look big, it's an issue I have with flat lace-up sneaks) but I will definitely be picking up a pair at this price...probably the low-top in faux black leather ($29.99). With shorts, jeans or cute dresses, these are the perfect comfy-chic shoes to wear all summer and into the fall. You can see more of my off-the-rack photos below and shop all the shoes in the Superga x Target collection online at target.com.
H&M announced that its next designer collaboration will be with KENZO, the "vibrant and playful Parisian house that captures the energy of global culture to create its unique, youthful spirit." Creative Directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon will bring the spirit of KENZO to H&M, creating collections for women and men as well as accessories.
Lim and Leon are the founders of global fashion emporium Opening Ceremony, and to be honest I hadn't really heard of Kenzo until the Opening Ceremony duo took the helm of the Parisian fashion house in 2011 and made headlines.
Kenzo was created by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada, who held his first fashion show in Paris in 1972. Kenzo is a celeb favorite, and you might recognize their bold, tongue-in-cheek designs like the oversized message clutch that Jessica Alba carried in this post. Or maybe you've taken note of Kenzo's super expensive embellished sweatshirts on fashion blogs and celebrity style sites. That tiger sweatshirt you've seen everywhere? That's Kenzo.
I'll be following this collab closely just because it's so relevant to the fashion scene today. With their huge fan base, I have a feeling it will sell out quickly and tons will end up on eBay.
KENZO x H&M will be available in selected stores & online from November 3, 2016.

Model Karolina Kurkova was spotted leaving the Martinez Hotel during the 69th Cannes Film Festival in a bright blue blazer paired with a white top and white skinny jeans. I love how fresh this look is for summer...it has a nautical, preppy vibe thanks to the crisp blazer with gold buttons and the white jeans, but the edgy black espadrille sneakers give it a cool, urban touch. And I love the neutral blush crossbody bag, an absolute essential. If you haven't already, I recommend checking out the Who What Wear line at Target where you'll find this amazing little bag that looks so luxe for the price. Read on for more fashion finds that just appear expensive but are all under $35!
I'm increasingly impressed with the Who What Wear for Target collection - each month seems to bring more covetable items that I want to add to my wardrobe. This month, they've introduced sophisticated ways to wear ruffles, cropped flares and summer whites. I used to love shopping Target's Xhilaration line but at some point I woke up and realized, it's just way too young for me (boohoo), and that's why I especially love the Who What Wear line. It's on trend but totally suitable for someone in her thirties and beyond. The colors are sophisticated, and many of the silhouettes are work appropriate, too. I'm crushing on this pleated skirt, this jacket and this ruffle top. This straw hat is a summer staple (and fits my big head) while this apron dress would be perfect for long summer weekends. I just wish I wasn't nursing sometimes so I could wear all these fun items all the time! But, not complaining. I guess my situation saves me money in the long run!
