Color Blocking - Blue Dress, Coral Cardigan & Fedora - WIWW

BLUE DRESS - Old Navy
CORAL CARDIGAN - Gap Outlet
BLACK BELT - NY&Co
BRACELET - H&M
FEDORA - Eugenia Kim for Target
MULTI-COLORED WEDGES - Cynthia Vincent for Target
One thing I can say about Pigtails is she knows what she wants and goes for it.  Lately she's been interested in boys her own age (15 months), especially the ones who can't walk yet.  She likes to sneak up behind them and give them a big hug.  She's smart and must realize they can't get away.  But honestly, they don't seem to really mind all that much.

Pigtails attempts to "wear" a dress
Today I'm linking up to "What I Wore Wednesday" over at the Pleated Poppy.  I went for bright bold colors.  I wasn't feeling all that great so I figured I could use a little pick me up.  I almost wore this with my bright yellow cardigan but remembered that last Friday I wore a similar color combo.  I was also having a bad hair day, hence the hat. 

I love a fedora and bought almost every single Eugenia Kim for Target hat in the collection.  In October the Albertus Swanepoel for Target collection will arrive.  I can't wait for that!!!

Anyway, I better keep this short.  The girls want a smoothie, and when those girls want something...

I worry about myself in that I have a similar blue dress and a much loved coral cardi and somehow have never thought to pair them together. Thank goodness I have you for inspiration!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

Love your look and had to laugh about Pigtails hugging the boys. I'm sure they love it and it's probably imprinted on them now and they'll be looking for a girl just like her for the rest of their lives! Anyway, I am dying for those Albertus Swanepoel hats to arrive too!

And here you go showcasing yet another awesome Target find, so jealous! Fedoras are definitely your thing, you look so chic and pretty! ♥
