Off the Rack: More Spring Shoes at Target (See 20+ In-Store Pics)

Cute spring shoes at Target
Target has been rolling out their spring shoes (see my posts here and here) and now even more adorable styles have cropped up. I could see myself wearing the Merona 'Elke' ($22.99 in gold, cognac or black), 'Eve' demi-wedge ($24.99 in red/brown, black, brown or navy stripe/brown), and 'Indra' ($27.99, black or cognac) all summer long with jeans, shorts or dresses. Styles like the 'Kady' lace-up flats are on-trend and no less wearable. A must-have for spring 2016. From Mossimo, the 'Gretchen' ($29.99) is a high-fashion look for less that I think you'll love, while the casual 'Sonora' ($19.99) is especially tempting in navy stripe. I'd say we've got some good options going forward this spring, what do you think??

Look for Less: Dragonfly Brooch

Dragonfly Brooch Look for Less
Anyone else feeling brooches right now? They were a huge hit on the fall 2015 runways and are just now making their way to the streets. Olivia Palermo included an assortment of brooches in her curated collection for BaubleBar, too, in case you needed another reason to love this trend. Mind you, these aren't your grandma's brooches. Or rather, they needn't be worn in traditional ways. Mix things up by clipping a brooch onto your heels or pin one in place of a tie on a collared, button-down shirt. The pops of color and sparkles make these modern brooches feel cool and not stuffy.

Consider, for example, Kojis diamond dragonfly brooch. I'm obsessed. I mean the greens, blues, and purples in this pendant are really stunning. I can see this pinned to a moto jacket for an elevated level of swag. To get the same cool girl vibe as this brooch, this Kenneth Jay Lane pin ($35) is the perfect look for less. While it may not have the same colored gems as the Kojis brooch, the look for less still would look so impeccable with a cargo jacket or a trench coat for spring. Feels very Audrey Hepburn-esque, doesn't it?

Splurge:
Kojis diamond dragonfly brooch $1,320
