Missing the Target collabo



Sunnies: Gucci | Necklace: Express (option) | Chambray: JCrew Factory (over 55% off!) | Bracelet: Stella & Dot | Skirt: Phillip Lim for Target (option) | Boots: Coach (option)

If you're looking for reviews on the new Peter Pilotto Target collabo, you've come to the wrong place. To be honest, nothing really excited me about this collection at all, and this is the first of the last 4 collaborations that I'm passing on. I figured since I am not partaking in this collection, I may as well re-wear something from the latest one - you can see my original outfit here. Man, I was much tanner back then… 

I have been wanting to style this again, but couldn't make up my mind on what to do. Since I went with the more daring pairings of stripes and peep toe booties the first time, I decided to make it a little more rodeo feeling with the chambray and boots. Ok, so that wasn't my actual intention, but I'll admit, I did feel a bit rodeo once I was dressed. Perhaps it's the Texan deep down inside me missing the rodeo festivities currently happening at home!

So tell me, have you shopped the Peter Pilotto collection yet? Love it or hate it?

  2. I'm with you, not really a big fan of the Peter Pilotto collection...it just doesn't speak to me for some reason. I do love your outfit today though!

    1. Thank you!
      I finally went to see the collection in person, and it was even some of the pieces that I *thought* were a little appealing on other bloggers, I wasn't feeling in real life. Oh well. My wallet survived a collaboration!

  3. Although I liked the colors in the Peter Pilotto stuff, it was all too LOUD for me so I passed. I haven't really gotten into any of the Target collabs except Philip Lim, I still carry that bag every day! I like the way you styled the skirt BOTH times, although I may slightly favor the Rodeo version. But next time please add Cowboy boots and a golden lasso a la Wonder Woman to make it official!

  7. I thought I was the only one, nothing was that crazy exciting, the only thing that I liked was the dress Wendy styled yesterday, and even she had to "alter" it somehow with her belt. But this skirt is awesome, and I love your sunnies.

    1. Yes, she looked fab in that dress! The belt really grounded the entire look!
      I've also found that I get excited about these pieces, but once I wear them once, they're less likely to make it back into my rotation as often as my other stuff. Which is another reason that I thought perhaps it's best to simply pass.

  8. I love your look! Such a great transition into Spring look!

    1. Ha - what's funny is that is probably the only one I didn't partake in, and I wish I did. I really wanted one of the framed art pieces!
      Oh well! Thanks for stopping by and for the nice note!

  12. I loved this print from the Phillip Lim collection! The skirt is really cute on you and perfect with a denim shirt. I did like a lot in the Peter Pilotto collection though, picked up a black and white shirt and a summer shirt dress.

  14. I wasn't excited about the Peter Pilotto collection either. I'm not big on busy prints. So... Yeah... Not so much for me. I do love that skirt though and I think it is paired wonderfully with the denim shirt and boots.

    1. That's what's funny is I usually love me a good print, but even this was a bit much for me somehow. The shapes are great, but I would have loved simpler prints I think? Not sure.

  15. I really love this skirt and I like how you styled it both times. I always feel a little rodeo with cowboy boots on lol ;) I hadn't bought anything from the collection when I looked it over I didn't see anything I was too crazy about either! Maybe next collabo :)

    1. Yes - it's always fun to at least wait and see what the next designer has in store! The anticipation about it all is fun!
      And thank you so much!

  16. Love this look! & I'm with you on not being into the new collab collection-- there were some nice pieces overall, but nothing that called my name or seemed super versatile. Fingers crossed for the next one!

    1. Yes - that's probably it - nice pieces, but not nice enough to take up real estate in my closet.
      Always looking forward to the next one!

  17. Loving this look Carylee. The print on the skirt is beautifully and love how you kept it the main focus of the outfit. Moment of truth, I have never bought from any of the target collabortations..:(. Didnt find this out that fantastic either..

    1. Love this little confession! Honestly my most favorite things I've bought are from the Neiman Marcus collabo - I wear the gloves, scarf, and sweatshirt I bought from that incessantly, but not so much from the other collections.

  18. I keep having this collabo popping up, but being British, it doesn't really mean anything to me! Anyway, this skirt is lovely!

  20. That is such a cute skirt! I really like it with the chambray shirt :)

    We don't get many designer collaborations at targets here in Australia - I think the last one was Roberto Cavalli? And they certainly don't cause the same level of mad sell out that the US ones seem to :)

  25. I really like how you styled this skirt in both posts Carylee. This was actually one of my fave pieces from the Phillip Lim for Target collection last year still don't know why I didn't get this one too haha! The first outfit makes me miss summer so much; you really are very tan and summery there! XOXO, Elif
