Shopping with Elle (Floral Delight)

Last Sunday while in Target I spotted this floral blazer while sifting through the new Peter Pilotto collection.  I was immediately drawn to the floral pattern and the contrast of the black sleeves and zipper details.  Of course these pieces are not from the Peter Pilotto collection, they're not even designer, but they're so stylish and the floral patterns exude a romantic feel.  From Target's Xhilaration collection, although they may not have been intended to be worn together as coordinating pieces, I decided to pair them for a combination that's full of floral delight!

Remember these key points when shopping:  Always, always, always wear comfortable and loose fitting clothing.  You'll be changing multiple times and the easier it is to get out of your clothing (and put it back on) the more apt you'll be to enjoy the experience and try on more.  Secondly, my rule of thumb is to wear a pair of heels so that you can see the potential of the look when trying options.  Lastly, and as a former boutique owner, the store's will LOVE you for this, wear little to no makeup (I wear only a light gloss or lip balm when shopping).  Let's not stain or dirty the garments before we get them home, or even for the person after you should it not make the final cut.

  1. Good points.. esp the comfy clothes!
    I should think about drinking a 'grown up' drink before I try on clothes.... it always puts me in a bad mood to try clothes on.

  3. Very smart about the make up! I always hate when I try out something and someone has left make up smeared on it so I have to find another one in my size.

    1. Yes, I hate that as well - on the good side of things, it does make for a nice discount at the register.
