What I brought -
As you can see I brought along 2 shirts, 2 pairs of pants, 2 scarves, & 2 pairs of shoes. Apparently "2" should be my new favorite number, haha! I wanted to keep the jewelry simple so I only brought along a gold tassel necklace & a pair of gold rectangle earrings.
We need to stop & talk about this adorable striped weekender bag for a moment. I had seen these all over Target now for a while, but in true fashion for me, I wasn't willing to pay full price for one. I watched as the striped bag & polka dot bag made their way to clearance for $24.99 (down from $35), but I took the gamble that they would be marked down even further. No joke y'all, I probably checked it 3 times before this trip to see if it was further discounted...no luck. On the night before our departure, my Sister & I had to make one last stop at Target (who doesn't do that?) & I made a point of taking my Sister to see this bag. She picked it up & checked the tag...& gasped! She said "you're buying this bag!". Final price, $10.48!!!! BOOM! This bag easily held all the items you see above too! Just in case you don't already know this - all locations of Target mark their items down differently. Meaning, what is on clearence at one store may not be at another. Case in point, I was at another location this week & the very same bag was still full price (online too). Shop around!
Sorry for the deviation there, back to the outfit possibilities -

Some of the outfits above involve quite a bit of pattern mixing - which I personally enjoy. If that's not within your comfort zone then simply switch one of the striped tops for a solid print instead.
I personally am thrilled to see the Faux Fur Vests back again this season! Great for adding just a hint of warmth & tons of texture to an outfit!
Would you believe I only took photos of one outfit?! Guess I was too busy having fun :-)

Moral of the story...pack light, but think deep when it comes to remixing the items you brought along ;-)
