A Picture Is Worth {No. 9}

By fashion contributor Mary.

Today's image features another beautiful floral jacket (I still can't get over this one), but this time with more of an edge. A black bomber jacket is tough, and I love how the print gives it just a touch of sweetness. Paired with chunky accessories, black jeans (I think leather leggings would also work well), and a couple pops of color, it makes for a perfect casual and fun outfit:

The jacket that she's wearing in the image above costs more than $250, but I've recreated the entire outfit for under $115. (Now to try and recreate her hair. I mean, really, it's gorgeous.)

Here are a few other Target tops I would have a hard time saying no to:

Sale: BOGO Target Dresses

As Mary pointed out yesterday, dresses are a fantastic perk to warm weather dressing. 

Target is having a great buy-one-get-one half off sale on their dresses this week. Here are my favorite options:

I'm a sucker for 1 & 6 because they are nursing friendly. Which is your favorite?

A Picture Is Worth (No. 8}

By fashion contributor Mary.

There comes a point in springtime when the weather is warm and I start to think, "enough with the layers already!" I'm ready to put away my jackets and cardigans, and I start to look for tops that don't need a tank underneath to make them to be modest. I just want to wear one layer, because I can, because it's warm, and because fighting through multiple layers when my babe needs to nurse is an inconvenience.

Enter this week's inspiration image, which features a breezy and elegant shirt dress. Dresses are kind of the ultimate in one-layer outfits (there's not even a top/bottom overlap!), and are incredibly easy to wear. Just pair with neutral accessories, a classic red lip, and go.

Inspired: Braided {No. 3}

There is something about warmer weather that gets me itching to twist and braid my hair away from my face. Here are a few lovely images for inspiration:

{ 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 }

I am sure I'll be pulling out the double twist (and single twist) gibson tuck soon.
