When you ladies shop or just randomly come across something amazing, do you ever feel like you need to share it with others?  I totally do. I’m sure many of you understand this. 

Now I need to share something with you. Target has these cord pants in few pretty colors for Fall. I bought a pair in turquoise (it was between turq and purple for me. Love them in red too).  Pretty ya’ll, especially for that price. Also got this sweater which looks absolutely beautiful on and a lot more expensive than it is. The picture doesn’t do it justice. Believe me. 

Now have yourself a Happy Hump Day!

    I LOVE this outfit, Lilly! So classic and chic and that skirt looks stunning on you. I'm kicking myself right now because I had a pair of turquoise cords from Abercrombie in high school that I loved and wore all the time. I wish I would've kept them.

    Always a big fan of lace!! What size do you buy in the juniors dept at Target?

      Lilly said:

      I'm usually a size 3 (rarely a 5), it just depends on the fabric and they way they make their pants. But the cord pants I ended up getting in size 1.. I was worried they might stretch too much so I went down a size.

    I adore your skirt, but then again I have a weakness for anything lace. I'm glad fall is around the corner and we're all going to move on from brights and neons to sex lace and dark shades ๐Ÿ™‚

    that lace skirt is beautiful! and if its from H&M, I bet its a great price too!! Sometimes its way more fun to dress in a classic outfit than a trendy

    LOL – I kinda can't wait until the neon trend dies, although I've had fun wearing a few things. This skirt is just gorgeous and the whole look is so chic!

      Same here even though I wear it ๐Ÿ™‚ The skirt was $40, definitely a great price for such a timeless skirt.

    How do you feel about the fit of the sweater?? I got it over the weekend but feel its a little boxy…I tried belting it but it bunches weird in the back. I am on the fence.

    • 8.16.12
      Lilly said:

      It is just a tiny bit boxy I would say but I still love it. I tried it on with dark skinny jeans and a maxi skirt and it looked great with both pieces. Definitely happy with the purchase ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey Lily. Are the Turquoise cords from target more of a mint color? I have a darker aqua color but would love a lighter mint color. I have the red cords from there and I LOVE them! The color you purchased wasn't available when I got these. I can always order online:)

    • 8.17.12
      Lilly said:

      I wouldn't say they are a mint color, definitely not light color. The ones I bought are a bit deeper aqua than what they show online.
