Look Up

This post is brought to you by an outfit inspiration that I found by chance.  We all know by now that I love Target & that I visit my local Target store on a very regular basis.  A couple of weeks ago during one of my visits I spent time wandering through the clothing department & for whatever reason, I looked up.  Hanging on the back wall of the clothing department (way up high) they have giant pictures of models in Target clothing.  I know these have always been there & they change them out regularly, but I think I visit so often that I'm immune to them...they don't typically catch my attention.  However, this particular picture caught my eye on that day & I said "hey, I have everything needed to make that outfit", so I did just that.

As you can see, I chose to wear this layered chambray & striped top with ponte knit leggings & red heels (for color).  If the weather is nice, I could also wear a nice pair of bermuda shorts in lieu of the leggings (we're still having up & down's with our weather here in Colorado).

Overall, I was happy with how it came together.  I was glad to have spied the inspiration photo because it gave me the chance to wear pieces I already have in a new way.  Where you do find your inspirations for outfits...anywhere unusual?

Here's the links to the items I'm wearing:  Chambray (not the exact one I'm wearing, but similar) // Striped Top (same top shown in this post) // Ponte Knit Leggings (fun alternative with pattern) // Red Peep Toe Pump (again, similar option as the ones I'm wearing are old) //  Exact J.Crew Factory Necklace

  1. Ha! I love this post! I am the same as you- I rarely notice the posters and banners hanging in Target even though I know they are there. I'm on mission to get 425 other things anytime I'm in there, but next time I go ( I'll be looking up for outfit inspiration. :) Great re-creation of their look!
