a few spring target tops

I had fun filming a little reel to share a few Target spring tops I found. Below, you’ll find all the links and details to each look.

Yesterday, I worked up the courage to head back into Target. (If you missed it, I had a scary experience being followed around the store a few weeks ago.) This time I was much more aware, alert, and thankfully didn’t have any issues. Other than finding way too many cute new spring arrivals, that is!

Since dressing rooms are currently closed, I brought a few things back home to see if anything worked. Ohhh did it, y’all. Target is killing it lately, and I found so many cute items… all under $50!

Heads up: the adorable blue floral top isn’t online yet, but I’ll be sure to link it when it is. (The skirt is, however! So weird.) The set looks so dreamy together, even though the top and skirt are actually made of different materials.

I hope you enjoy!

After a year of quarantine (#allthesnacks) it’s safe to say I didn’t think I’d be very excited about swimsuit season. But there’s nothing like a fresh assortment of cute cuts and colorful patterns to make me forget insecurities and embrace the sunshine!

Year after year, I find my favorite swim pieces at J.Crew. (And this isn’t sponsored, by the way!) I just always appreciate the variety of cute, classic, and fun pieces, and in a world where I’m seeing more and more $300+ swimwear, the price points make me happy too. (Not to mention, there is almost always a sale of some sort going on!)

To make it even better, J.Crew offers swim in sizes 00-24, as well as long torso options. Love that!

My first swim purchase of the season was this simple pink bandeau top (padded) and high-rise bottoms (great coverage). The material is so soft and the style is very timeless. It’s a great go-to, comfortable piece for all of your spring and summer adventures. (P.S. Sizing feels true to size – I always wear an XS in tops and a S in bottoms.)

But this isn’t the only swimsuit I’m loving from J.Crew. There are currently so many fabulous pieces available, and I’ve rounded up my favorites below!

This casual, all-white ensemble is one I plan on going back to time and time again these coming months. This tank is amazing (read more about it below) and this pair of jeans is already an instant favorite. Think of them as your spring and summer staples… there are so many looks you can create around them!

Now, for a bit more on my favorite timeless styles:

 

 

 

white ruffle tank

Be right back, I’m off to buy this sweet ruffle tank in every single color. (Including pink!) It’s even cuter on than it is in photos, and I am so impressed with the soft, non-see-through fabric. This is a simple, elegant must for layering and wearing solo this spring and summer!


 

 

cropped flare jeans

It’s no secret that I live in white jeans year-round, but especially during warm weather. If you’re looking for the perfect silhouette to spice up your skinny jean selection, these cropped flare jeans are it. J.Crew is always my go-to for jeans, and these come in petite, regular and tall. I’m wearing my usual size in petite!


 

 

montauk canvas tote

If there’s one bag that will always remain a true classic, it’s the canvas tote. J.Crew has perfected theirs, with soft and durable fabric, timeless color combinations, and 5 size options. Oh, and you can get it monogrammed, too! I don’t think I opted for the Medium, and don’t think I’ll ever be leaving the house without it


 

 

gingham sneakers

The white sneaker trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, friends, and that’s more than enough reason to add this pair to your collection! Look closely and you’ll notice a navy gingham detailing on the back and tongue of the shoe. They’re so comfortable, effortless, and will truly go with anything! Sizing? True to size.

What do I have added to my cart? This top and skirt combination (how gorgeous?!), these raffia earrings, and this ruffled swimsuit. In love!

4 sweet swimsuits i’m loving

I had the best luck at Aerie finding affordable and super sweet swimsuits that, best of all, have full-coverage bottoms, and have been wearing them all week. I thought it would be fun to share them with y’all!

While Florida this time of year is amazing (so many flowers in bloom, sunny breezy weather, the list goes on!) nothing really beats a few days at the beach, no matter the season!

My family and I have had a lovely, slow week by the sea. I genuinely can’t remember the last time I actually wore a swimsuit, and it was so nice to have a little taste of summer!

SIZING: I found all of Aerie’s sizing to be very consistent. I wear an XS in one pieces, an XS in swimsuit tops and a S in bottoms. Everything fits true to size for me!

finally! a pair of jean shorts i love

If there’s one thing you don’t often see me in, it’s shorts. To be frank, I hate them. For whatever reason, I’ve always felt that shorts have never fit to never be quite right on me! That is until these Abercrombie curve love mid rise mom shorts, y’all.

If there’s one thing you don’t often see me in, it’s shorts. To be frank, I hate them. For whatever reason, I’ve always felt that shorts have never fit to never be quite right on me! That is until these Abercrombie curve love mid rise mom shorts, y’all.

One thing I quickly realized upon moving to Florida in the middle of summer, however, is that I was going to have to get on the jean shorts train fast. When it’s above 90 degrees and humid as all get out, pants simply will not work. You’ve gotta figure something else out!

So for the past two years, I’ve been on a serious hunt for the perfect pair of jean shorts. What does that consist of? A reasonable price point, a simple cut, and, most importantly, a loose-leg fit. I’ve had some luck knocking off one or two things on that list, but haven’t had a slam dunk until now!

Friends… meet my new favorite pair of jean shorts: the curve love mid rise mom shorts!

SHORTS curve love mid-rise mom short (wearing usual jean size, 25 in “dark wash”) | SHIRT white blouse | BOOTS pink cowboy boots (old color, brand linked)

I stumbled across these a few weeks ago and was instantly intrigued by the name. The idea of “mom shorts” seemed promising, especially after feeling like nearly every pair of shorts I was trying on was so tight around the thigh.

Upon further inspection, I found that this style “features an additional 2 inches through the hip and thigh from our classic fit.” Since I’m always struggling with shorts that fit too tightly, this was exactly what I was looking for!

I ordered one pair in the “ripped medium wash” to try them out, and after receiving them I immediately added the dark wash and the white pair to my cart. Y’all.. they’re just so good!

 

Now, for a few details on the fit and sizing. I ordered my usual size and a size up, and ended up preferring my normal jean size. Sizing up made them a bit too baggy in the rear. I will say, these are still pretty short. If it were up to me, I’d have another inch or so in length, but that’s the only thing I’d tweak!

On that note, I think that individual pairs vary slightly in terms of just how short they are. If you look at the product photo online, some rips and tears affect how short they are. For instance, the darker pair I’m wearing in this post fits a bit longer than the light-wash pair because of the distressing. Just something to keep in mind!

If you’re blessed with slender, sky-high legs, these are probably going to be way too baggy on you. But if you’ve got a little somethin’ somethin’ going on in the back/thigh area (like your girl does!) I think you’ll love them. I know I do, and can’t wait to wear them non-stop these next few months!

Love from the Sunshine State,

Kate
