Prabal Gurung x Target Sale

Prabal Gurung x Target dress in Meet the Parents print, Prada sunglasses, Maison Martin Margiela x H&M heels
I picked up a few more Prabal Gurung for Target items in store for 50-70% off a few weeks ago. I surprisingly like the black and white Meet the Parents print floral dress a lot. Black and white is big this spring, and the silhouette with the slightly flared skirt is flattering, even without a belt. I definitely wouldn't have paid full price for the two tank tops, but for ~$10, they are cute and easy to wear. I also bought the drop waisted First Date t-shirt dress for 70% off, not pictured. I ended up returning most of my initial order, the only full price items that I kept were the floral crush dress and long sleeve t-shirt and the first date sweatshirt.

New Springtime Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant Sid trousers and Betty sneakers, Zara t-shirt, Fred Flare Carrie sunglasses
While I usually try to be good and wait for the sales to buy Isabel Marant, there's usually a couple of pieces that I just can't wait to buy and end up splurging for at full price. Last year it was the Lexy jacket, Dicker boots and Betty sneakers. I wear all three all the time, the Dickers and Bettys were pretty much the only shoes I wore all winter, so I think the price is justified based on cost per wear. I try to buy items that I don't think will make it to the sale. This season, I splurged for the Sid trousers in black from the Etoile line. Every year she does a springy floral print, I have her Hana romper from last year that I wore all summer long, and I really like the pattern for this season. I tried on several pieces at Barneys and the Isabel Marant store including the Sumac jacket and Shiso romper, and was surprised to find that the Sid trousers were my favorite. The Sumac is too boxy and short for me and I don't like the racerback style of the Shiso. The cotton voile fabric is super lightweight and they look and feel like pajama pants, but so comfortable. I really liked the striped Cooper jeans as well, but the Sid pants are a lot more comfortable. Since I spend so much of my time on the floor chasing after little K, comfort and practicality is high on my list of priorities. Bonus points for lots of pockets, as I usually never have my hands free anymore. While the blue and red sid trousers are really cute, I thought black would be the most versatile, so I finally tracked down a pair at Maryam Nassir Zadeh in NYC.
