TARGETing Spring Fashion


What do you do on a rainy Saturday after a particularly rough week?

You text your blogging bestie and have her meet you at Target!!!

Our Target adventures are more than shopping sprees. They’re therapy. Inspiration. And full of much needed laughter.

Reagan, of Reagan In My Own World, and I took it back to basics. Where we originally met.

Target clothing department.

We both love fashion and each have our own style. So we enjoy sharing with our readers what we both loved!

Handbags are always my favorite. I’ve been craving a round bag and found plenty during our trip!

And we both were immediately drawn to this unique bag.

Fanny packs are also on my radar lately. This powder pink one with gold hardware caught my eye.

As a lover of leopard prints I fell in love with this scarf and headband in this spring pastel version.

No shopping trip is complete without a visit to the shoe department.

Yellow is huge this season. Wedges are trending. And my beloved leopard print makes an appearance in this department as well.

I was intrigued by this chunky pearlescent necklace that I dubbed ‘The Wilma Flinstone’.

Denim gets a splash of color with this acid washed pink jacket.

And I loved the pop of color with the stripes on the sides of these comfy joggers.

Again with the yellow! I picture this over several different colors to ad dimension to an outfit.

And finally, a toned down piece among all my bright picks. This easy casual muted grey outfit by their newest line Prologue.

Reagan and I left inspired and refreshed. Ready to face another week.

Check out her blog and see her favorites!


Be it ever so Humble…


I met photographer Don Porter when I first hit the fashion scene in Charlotte a few years back.

Pretty much everything I know about the world of fashion shows I learned from him.

So when he asked me to attend a photo shoot at his studio I was ready. Eager to learn more from my knowledgeable teacher.

Then he told me who the designer was. Humble Connor. And I was on cloud nine.

I had met her briefly last year. But I’ve been a fan for several years after seeing her designs on the runway at Charlotte Fashion Week.

I’m drawn to her dramatic, oversized sleeves and her ruching fabrics.

She asked if I’d like to try on one of her pieces. I’ve never been so excited to put on an article of clothing in my life!!!

The feeling of wearing something that will be on the runway soon is a feeling I cannot even describe.

The first piece was an all black outfit. Pairing her own violin against the puffy black sleeves was striking. And the model, Erica Miller, was a good sport, posing on a ladder despite her fear of heights.

The second look was this sea of tulle paired with the most gorgeous satin pants. First photographed with the denim jacket I tried on then without.

We finished up outside at a construction site with my favorite outfit of the day.

The asymmetrical cut of this suit and the colors blew me away. And I would rock this ensemble in any situation.

I got to know the designer and realized her heart and personality were just as amazing as her designs. And I can’t wait to see more.

Getting to watch Don in action was also an experience. I normally see him perched at the end of a runway. He’s a very talented photographer.

Spending the day with two of my favorites in the fashion world was truly Humbling.
