Haul: Peter Pilotto for Target

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past month, you know that UK designer Peter Pilotto’s highly anticipated collection for Target launched yesterday. Although very intrigued by all the ads and leaked lookbook  (thankyou Refinery29.com), I’ve shopped these designer capsule collections from Target in the past and I know they can be hit or miss in terms of quality and fit. I thought it was best to go in person to see the pieces and try them on….I was very pleased.

There were a wide variety of styles and separates…the pieces are well made and the fabric quality is very appropriate for the upcoming transitioning season. From what I’ve heard there’s still some great stuff left so if you have chance head over to Target and check it out.

Here’s what I got:

 

Romper $49.99 (I’ll be taking this on the honeymoon!)

Christmas Haul 2013

I know I’m suuuuuuper late but in an effort to stay committed to blogging, I’m putting out my Christmas Haul….in January.

This holiday season I wanted to focus on replenishing wardrobe staples and I was in desperate need of sweaters so I racked up. And I was lucky enough to get some unexpected extras!

Christmas goodies!

Christmas goodies! 

Banana Republic Zip-Back Pullover $49:  I’ve decided to start buying pieces I really love in more than one color…and I started with this. The light gray heather has a pink contrasting exposed back zipper and the fire coral has a yellow exposed zipper. I chose the lighter colors to add a bright spot to this dreadful winter weather and to remind myself that spring soon come. This sweater makes a great transition piece as well!

Gap Cable Knit Pullover:  Because it is indeed still winter, I needed something a bit more heavy duty so I opted for a couple of classic cable knit sweaters. I selected basic colors Snow Cap ($35) and Navy ($29) to mix and match with some of my fav skinny jeans.

Old Navy Honeycomb-Stitch Infinity Scarf $18:  I have wanted an infinity scarf for YEARS but was never willing to pay the $30 price tag I would always see, so I waited. As described the stitch is like a honeycomb but the best part is how soft it is; some scarves are so thick and tightly woven that they irritate my neck. Not this one! Although a great price online at $18, Old Navy is actually having a sale in-store on cold weather accessories so I got this scarf for 9 bucks.

Leslie Danzis Necklace:  One of my very good friends (and our awesome wedding planner) Scoobie West got this necklace for me because he knows how much I LOVE statement pieces. The blue is exactly what I needed in my wardrobe. He purchased it off Gilt so unfortunately it’s no longer available but you can find a similar style here.

 

Michael Kors Large Hamilton Saffiano Tote

MICHAEL Michael Kors Large Hamilton Saffiano Tote $358:  This was a gift from my wonderful and loving fiancé. I’ve gushed over this bag for over a year and he surprised me with it for Christmas! This bag is everything I imagined it would be: gorgeous and classy. It has tons of compartments, which will keep me organized and it’s super sturdy. It’s actually big enough to carry the majority of my work stuff: iPad, notebooks, wallet, ballet flats (if I’m in transit on foot), water bottle and cosmetic pouch.

I had a very lovely Christmas but I’m most thankful for great family and friends.

Fashion Finds: New Workout Clothes Haul

Although I’m no stranger to working out, I have certainly “fell off” and with my wedding only 4 months away I’m even more motivated to get back in the gym and work out. I’ve come to realize that I am definitely more motivated to do just about anything when I’m dressed in appropriate, cute attire so I decided I would purchase some basics to get me started. I also implemented an incentive, which allows me to purchase a new fitness item for every 8 weeks I attend the gym on a steady schedule. First incentive item will be the Nike Free 5.0 Running Shoe and if I’m a good girl, I’ll have these babies by my birthday, Feb 26th…wish me luck!

So here’s the loot:

Workout Haul

Workout Haul

 

Women’s Active by Old Navy Compression Capris $23: ALL of my current workout attire is mostly black so I got 2 pair of these, one in Raspberry Punch and the other in Carbon 3. I REALLY like the elasticized waistband that comes up just over that little pouch. There’s also a hidden coin pocket and it’s a quick-drying fabric, which is certainly ideal (no sweat stains). Great buy!

Women’s Active by Old Navy Jackets $35: Made of the same fabric as the Capri pants, this jacket is ideal for coming and going and the fabric won’t chafe. It’s a great fit and it also has 2 zippered pockets and little thumbholes to keep your hands warm. I got this one in Carbon 2.

Women’s Active by Old Navy GoDRY Graphic Tanks $15: Typically I like the very fitted workout tank tops but because it’s been quite some time since I’ve been to the gym (sucks in belly), I decided to get a couple of loose fitting tops. I got two of these tanks, one in Light Gray (Live. Learn. Burn.) and one in Carbon (Be Happy. Be Bright. Be You.).

4pk Multi Color Socks $7: Not sure why these aren’t on the Old Navy website but they should be. All of my current workout socks are black and I decided to get colorful socks to spruce things up a bit…it’s the little things!

Under Armour Men’s ColdGear Combine Training Tech Gloves $35: One of the most important items I purchased was a new pair of workout gloves. My current gloves are completely split open between the thumb and index finger…which is kind of cool because I’ve been able to slip my index finger out and keep up with my workout on my iPhone but not really cool cause they look a hot mess. I chose these gloves because they have the touchscreen fingertips and because they have the no-slip grip pattern. I got these in Black/Solar.

So here’s to a New Year…and hopefully a New FIT ME :-)

Care to share any good fitness buys?
