Around this time every year I find myself going a little stir crazy and craving a tropical vacation. I can almost feel the warm inviting breeze on my face through swaying palm trees.
Since I can do little more than daydream, why not name a few of my favorite trends I can’t wait to wear come spring?

I love the refreshing feel that these trends offer and are right on par with the season. Excited to add a few staples to refresh my wintery wardrobe.
Here are a few of my pocketbook friendly picks from Target, Zara, and Forever 21, based on the above trends:
Target [under $20]
Xhilaration Junior Printed Soft Pant
Mossimo Easy Knit Pant
Xhilaration Junior Printed Palazzo Pant
pretty in pink & florals
Zara [under $70]
prints, patterns & pink
Forever 21 [under $40]
It’s like a breath of fresh air isn’t it? Just a few added spring staples can easily infuse life into a tired winter wardrobe. Harem or slouchy pants topped with chunky knit sweaters. A lace or floral top can peek through a layered kimono, boyfriend jeans and simple skinny heels.
On the way to girls night I promised myself to make a beeline straight for the wine aisle at Target. I headed into the store with good intentions, but was immediately greeted with none other than big red clearance signs, what’s a girl to do? An innocent perusing trip commenced.
Thankfully my impromptu shopping trip hardly put a dent in my pocketbook Two button-ups at just [$6.88] each – one flannel with a sequins collar and one blue cotton polka dot. And to think I was going to buy it at full price for $22.99 a piece – good things come to those who wait 🙂
Target preppy button-ups [$6.88]The blue polka dot button-up is the perfect transition piece from winter to spring. I couldn’t help but buy the wintery flannel button-up too, after all it is (sigh) still winter even with the stint of Seattle sun.
I styled my flannel with my metallic ballet flats and favorite Anthropologie mustard skinnies that I found for just [$39.95] which you can read about here. Toss on a navy blazer or jean jacket and I’m all set to go!I escaped spending just under $30 (including wine for girls night), which in Target terms I define as a smashing success. I’m sure all you fellow Target lovers can relate.
On a sidenote – have you seen the fabulous Instagram @targetdoesitagain and @targetgoesclearance? My girlfriend introduced me and I am hooked. If you are as in love with Target as I am they are worth following!
