Off the Rack: Early March Highlights at Target

I'm not sure if the selection of clothes and shoes at Target is really, really good right now, or whether I just have the best shopping buddy in the whole wide world (which I do), but I had a lot of fun at Target this week. Too much fun. For spring, trends like 60s mod and Minimalism translate into plenty of wearable day to night looks with dresses and separates that flatter everyone. My eye was drawn to all the polka dots (on a cute blouse and lightweight anorak), the stripes (like a J.Crew-eque top) and a leopard print shirtdress. And don't even get me started on the shoes! Cap-toe and bow-embellished flats, yes and yes. My shopping buddy was more impressed by the plastic clothes hangers, but I digress. Scroll down for some more in-store highlights. P.S. Peter Pilotto is on clearance in case you wanted to pick up a few more things.

There's nothing cooler than having your kid photobomb you when you're trying to take a dressing room selfie! He cracks me up.
That last picture of him holding the hanger is toooo cute. Made me laugh. My son gets amused too by hangers and oh remote controls.

If only you could hear the noises he was making, too! Lately whenever he thinks he has something that's "off limits" (like this hanger, or the TV remote) he starts growling! Sounds like a creature from Star Wars or something. Too funny, these babes of ours :-)

I actually got several of the things you showed here. The 2 striped Merona tops, the colorblock skirt and the perforated oxfords in the off white color. Yay for Spring!!

I'm super busy at work today, but when I saw that 1st photo of your lil man peeking out, I couldn't resist checking out all of the photos! I especially love those black & white striped flats--I cant wait to throw my "polar vortex' footwear to the back of the closet, and slip these on :-)

Sheesh, me too! These are my polar vortex boots for sure. Not the most photogenic lol

The baby is sooo cute!!! Is he gettin ready to walk? Or already walking? My baby was an early walker at 9 months! Anyway, I was hoping to see the leopard print dress on you. Do you have a pic of it? The high heeled sandals are to die for by the way!

He seems really close to walking and he's 8 1/2 months now! :-)

The leopard dress looked really cute in person but it didn't come across in the photos, so I didn't post one, but I just sent it to you via Twitter.

I'm really hoping my store gets in the polka dot anorak (there's a cute striped Merona trench I have my eye on too). And the first picture of your little guy peeking through your legs and smiling? ADORABLE! Thank you for sharing!!

I love how your son is in the first photo! Reminds me of the days when my boys were my shopping buddies.
