Today's Target Find + July's InStyle + Packing Update

I recently purchased this tee at Target:

Mossimo Supply Co. Striped T - Oxford Blue

It is lightweight but not too sheer, has cuffed sleeves and unfinished edges. Also comes in a bright peach and one or two other colors.

It is a very similar look to the Current/Elliott tee on page 108 of InStyle July 2011 - but priced about $88 less.

Speaking of July's InStyle. What a great issue. If you haven't picked one up yet, I highly recommend.

There is a gorgeously styled and photographed article showing French actress Clemence Poesy in Portofino (love the retro look of the photos on pages 164 and 165 especially). Also, travel product recommendations from a dermatologist, makeup artist, and wellness expert (I'm thinking of getting some L-Tyrosine Plus and B-12 Spray), and some great summer juice cooler recipes (I'll take a Green Tornado, please).

Lots of great fashion too - styling a bright cardigan, maxi skirts, wearing blush colored clothing (J Crew is featured on page 79)... just a great issue.

My packing is coming along. It now looks like this:

I have those two tees on the way from LL Bean and some tops from J Crew that I'm hoping will work. Also still waiting on a couple orders for my little guy and a nice sized order of Gap's Twist and Shout for my girls. (Have you seen this line? So. Cute.) I also don't have the Jack Rogers or BR Miracles on my sidebar yet but I'm hoping they arrive soon so I can get them a little broken in for the trip.

I went to the MAC counter yesterday for the first time in a long time because of a Pixiwoos video... having fun playing with some new colors and (finally) proper brushes. I'll try to get a post up in a few days.

Happy Friday!



  1. As usual, LOVE your target finds:) I saw that tee the other day so i ran back to get one. SO cute! How would you wear it? Jeans? Khaki capri's? I will have to check out this Gap kids line you mention, loving all girl clothing now, i have to be careful not to go overboard!!!!HA!

  2. Packing drives me insane. I've sworn off travelling for 6 months, I don't know how these superwomen who pack for their husbands too manage. Mine has to checklist me!

  3. I've been thinking lately about packing that detailed - planning outfits. I feel like it would save me SO much time, but it sounds so daunting when I'm just trying to rush around and pack for all of us.

  4. Hi,
