"And so you're back/From Outer Space...."

tucker ootd

So I managed to squeeze in a few purchases in the last couple months. I took a chance on a couple of the Tucker for Target pieces on the recommendation of a friend who said they were pretty roomy. I am very pleased with them. The first one I paired with a sweater and belt I thrifted that are also from Target, American Apparel leggings, and the Target Kachiri boots that are the best deal going. $40-odd bucks for leather, Frye Campus look-alikes? Yes, please.

'Nother Tucker

The second one I wore with a tunic/dress thingy that has made appearances here before (from SWAK Designs) and a orange faux-snakeskin belt from the Target thrift store. Finished off with the famous $19 J. Crew Boots.

Stank face?

This was nothing special, but a comfy weekend outfit that features those same awesome Target boots. Top is SWAK Designs (their stuff is cheap, but once in a while they get something really cute in stock), thrifted cardigan, Asos Curve jeans.

Obsessed with stripes

And finally, I got this LL Bean top with a gift card. I have been wanting a spring/fall weight nautical type of top, and this has the perfect neckline and sleeve length for the job. I also got one in cream/navy stripe. It's cut for a longer torso than mine, but I think with a wash or two it will shrink up to just the right length. Secondhand Torrid skirt, vintage hat, Target shoes, scarf from Ricki's, a Canadian chain.


  1. I LOVE them all! I really dig the first and third outfits though - those boots are amazing, I really like the layering (and the glasses in the third outfit are so fun).

    I tried the Kachiri boots and they are, sadly, just a teensy bit too small to fit on my calves. If they were just a little taller and had pull-up loops I might have been able to get them on, but it just wasn't meant to be :(.

  2. Love all of these! ESPECIALLY the boots... might have to check those out when I get paid. ;D

  3. You finally feature your little girl and she is SO CUTE. Plus she's in my fave outfit photo.

    Also loving the new nautical top, a look I cannot get enough of at the moment.

  4. Yay for being back! Glad to see you posting again. I LOVE those Target boots. They're amazing. I already commented on how I like the Tucker for Target outfits, but I really like the just kicking around outfit too, love the glasses and yeah, the boots are so good. Cutie :)

  5. Wow, how cool to have comments from so many of my fave fashion bloggers on one post! Thanks, everyone.
