the bag is in

 Sweater: Old Navy (other polka dot options – here, herehere, and here )

Button down: Target (old) (similar here)

Pants: The Limited (similar here) (dress pants option – great deal)

Boots: Tory Burch (on sale here -almost sold out)

Bag: Target

Necklace: F21

Bracelets: J.Crew

Watch: Fossil 

The Target bag I blogged about the other day came in today (super fast shipping).  I wanted to include it today’s ootd so you ladies can see what it looks like. I like it! I couldn’t decided between this one and the tan one, so I ordered both. I’ll be keeping this navy one and returning the tan one. 

This is REALLY the one I want (and it’s on sale now). 

I think I’m going to be a good girl and stick to the Target one (stay strong, stay strong lol)

Does anyone else have a weakness when it comes to bags/purses and shoes???


p.s. the lighting is was dark outside by the time we took the photos

    It's cute! It's a great dupe for the Tory bag (which by the way looks beautiful too!) It's hard to stay strong when you want something, but I think you made a great choice.

    I love it! Really nice looking bag, definitely doesn't look like it's a Target bag (looks high end). Handbags have been a weakness of mine for as long as I can remember. I got my first LV a few months ago and love it, but am now looking for another handbag, I'm bad!

    I like the Target bag (that color is especially nice), but you just know the leather is super luscious on the Tory Burch original. Not that I'm trying to enable you or anything, lol.I have a serious weakness for bags. As a matter of fact, I wasn't supposed to buy any bags for the rest of the year, yet I'm waiting for one to arrive soon that I scored off Ebay. So didn't mean to buy it, but my fingers slipped. 🙂

    I want the bag – I was hoping they had it in the store too just to touch it but I will wait until the new year to buy it…. my shopping goes out of control constantly 🙁

      The truth it – blogs don't help with spending lol Sometimes it's just so hard to pass up a "good" sale (not always a sale haha)

    Love the purple with the layer chambray and polka dot sweater!! I love layering chambray! My real weakness is sweaters! I find myself buying almost identical ones, then I come back to reality and tell myself to step away from the sweater! I love your bag too!! I feel like Target has stepped up their game recently!!

    I completely have a obsession with bags/purses! Love this one from Target. I think subconsciously, I probably love bags so much because they are so easy to love – they don't have to fit properly, you just have to love them. I love your necklace too – I have the lavender version of this. :)

      I didn't even see the lavender version, I bet it so pretty. Maybe it's a good thing they didn't have it lol

      Thanks 🙂 Stalk the MK bag, I'm sure it will go on sale at some point. That's what I do, I stalk something until it goes on sale lol

    Oh the TB satchel is beautiful but that Target one looks really similar in fact I thought it was from TB when I first saw the picture! I also love that you're wearing polka dots!-SarahThe Weekend Diary

    Yes I have a major weakness for bags – not so much for shoes though…I can't believe how similar the Target bag is to the Tory Burch one you linked to – they're both beautiful!

      I thought about it but it was still more than I wanted to spend (the shape is somewhat similar to my Rebecca Minkoff one). Got an iPad case instead with the current promo 🙂

    Hi Lilly, I am dying to have this sweater and just called Old Navy to TRY to order it (I know it's a long shot since it's from last year), but they need the item number. Any chance you can reply to this post with the item number so I can have them search for it? Thanks in advance!
