Off the Rack: Target February Highlights

As much as I love Target's designer collabs, their in-house brands often get me just as excited to update my wardrobe (if not more so). Many items we loved from Mossimo, Xhilaration and Merona as seen in the Target Spring 2013 Lookbook are now available in stores, like the striped 3/4 length jacket, the mirrored floral pencil skirt and the gray blazer with black side panels. The piece you guys went crazy for on Instagram is definitely the bright yellow jacket above. It just looks way more expensive than it is ($39.99) and the color is mesmerizing. But if yellow's not your thing, this sharp tailored blazer also comes in taupe or black.

More fab finds below - have you bought any of these pieces?

The two target spring items I'm most excited about I couldn't find in the store yet. First I wanted to be sure to share since I know you like polka dots, too. It will be my 3rd polka dot sweater, but I will always wear polka dots whether they are in fashion or not.

I also ordered the ombre sweatshirt.

My third and fourth exciting purchases for spring (other than a few things from the Prabal Gurung for Target collection) are two purses. One is a Hobo International purple crossbody bag that I already love. The second is a Lulu by Lulu Guinness bag from JC Penney's. I know you saw them in person, but since I got a polka dot one I figured I'd share it.

Thanks for the post!

@Laura - I do love that polka dot sweater but I tried it on and it didn't cover my bump so I had to pass for now lol.

Loove the ombre sweatshirt, not sure how I'd wear it exactly but it must be mine!
