Limsanity Remix






Earrings: Kate Spade | Top: LOFT (option, option) | Necklace: Gifted (option, option)  | Bag: Michael Kors (option) | Watch: Kate Spade | Skirt: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target | Shoes: Pedro Garcia

I almost wanted to hold on to this skirt for awhile before wearing it, just to let the Limsanity calm down a bit, but I changed my mind. To be honest, I did struggle a little bit trying to decide how I wanted to wear this. I kept wanting to reach for my trusty chambray or go matchy-matchy with a cobalt top. Navy and white stripes has become such a neutral combo for me lately, so I opted for this top. The skirt definitely has a girly vibe to it because of its shape, so I wanted to funk it up a little bit with these peep toe booties - which are ridiculously comfortable by the way.

The great thing about a new Target collaboration is that it's viral. You see the collection everywhere, including how it saturates the blogger world. On one hand, I feel vulnerable, like everyone that sees me in public is thinking - oh, that's that Phillip Lim skirt again....But I felt better when someone complimented me on the skirt today and was shocked when I told them it was from Target. Then there's the other hand - the benefit to it being everywhere - there's so much inspiration to pull from! As I was writing this post, I decided to see what else was out there. I loved how these ladies styled their skirts also! Just proves how versatile this skirt is and that each of you need it, too! #enabler


Would love to see how you guys are sporting your Phillip Lim stuff! Please share!

    1. Thanks, Katie! On both counts! I'm not creative with my hair, which makes me appreciate the fact that I can manage this updo on my own!

  7. I think as a blogger we tend to see the same items over and over again so assume that it's the real world; when in fact, the majority of people probably have no idea what a brand or item is so trendy! You did a great job styling. Stripes are a great neutral :)
