victoria beckham for target

can we please talk about this new victoria beckham collection at target????!! i have been waiting for this release since i first saw it announced. i could barely contain myself! luckily the day it came out, i was able to snag some pieces. i live in a small town, which this time came to my advantage! after church on sunday, i decided to sneak away by myself to “take a drive.” meaning i was on my way target to check out this collection. sneaky, i know, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! 

i arrived at target at the perfect time. it wasn’t busy at all. i walked up to the new collection and just started browsing. sadly, a lot of pieces were sold out in my size but i was able to still get two pieces that i loved. the first was her scalloped black halter top and the second was a black romper. both caught my eye because of the detail, and let’s face it I cannot stay away from black. it’s my color!

i quickly grabbed these two pieces and put them in my cart so i could get to the dressing room. like i mentioned before, there were a lot of items i really wanted to try on but they were either an x-small or x-large. nothing that worked for me. normally I could do an xl in tops and get away with it, but the way her sizes ran, it was too big. anywho, dressing room time. 

i tried on these two pieces and of course fell in love instantly, i mean who wouldn’t. the top was extremely comfortable and i just felt great in it. it’s great to wear with jeans and heels or flats and it’s perfect with dress pants for work. the detail on this top is amazing too. im not one for much overstated items, which is why i think im so drawn to this collection. victoria beckham does an amazing job at creating fashion that is eye-catching yet simple. perfect combination for me and my personality. the top size wise was good. right now, it fits more on the loose side which is what i prefer. i will most likely need to take it in at some point just because im going through this workout/weight loss phase. (not quite sure how long it will last but we shall see.) but the way the top is now, it perfect size wise for me.

the romper was also the perfect size. i really don’t like clothes that are too fitted. for me, im just not comfortable in extremely tight clothes, especially rompers. to me, a romper should be lose and comfy yet stylish. which is this what this romper does. it has great structure and simple detailing that i love. i will say that because of the size run, if i lose anymore weight, i will have to take this in. it’s not meant to be extremely fitted so just be mindful of that. 

i wasn’t able to get anything else cause there was nothing left in my size. but ive linked some other items that recently released with the victoria beckham collection here so that you can shop them for yourself! happy shopping loves!!

right now some of the biggest colors are: pinks (any shade), yellows (any shade), lapis blue, flame (a shade of orange), and more. check out an extensive list here.

if you’re like me, the thought of wearing another color other than black, white or grey just makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up straight. but i promise when you see these pieces i’ve found for you, you will change your mind. i know i did. hence why i already ordered some of these pieces! (shhhhh don’t tell my husband!)

 

trends to look out for:

florals

stripes

slouchy trenches

military jackets

one shoulder looks

 

of course there are more but i’ve picked a few of my favorites to highlight today.

okay, so i don’t normally do a lot of florals or any print for that matter, but here are some pieces that i might just have to get very soon!!

how this works?? i’ve linked each item that i’ve found and loved (basically did the work for you!) so all you have to do is check these out for yourself and tell me what you think below! here we go!!

florals:

  1. victorian ruffle blouse with tie neck – target ($22.99) this top is extremely gorgeous, plus it has a little black in it, which of course calls out to me.
  2. women’s bomber jacket – target ($39.99) this jacket is beyond awesome. bomber jackets are also very trendy right now so you can mix two trends in one item. please just promise you will at least look at this item!
  3. mid-rise pixie ankle pants – old navy ($29.00) this pants are awesome!!! sooooo many outfit choices with these beauties. plus you can expand your floral horizons to your bottoms and just have fun with this piece.
  4. grey embroidered pointed toe pumps – misguided ($63.00) if your wallet is feeling a little generous, these are definitely the needed splurge item. these shoes are beyond gorgeous. plus the floral print on these is everything.
  5. patterned ruffled blouse – h&m ($49.99) – this top is super cute. not 100% that my personal body shape would work well with this top but it was too cute to not include. i love the print and the added ruffles to it. it’s definitely a bolder look but i am totally loving it.

stripes:

  1. women’s button up shirt dress – target ($34.99) this dress is a great way to incorporate some print into your wardrobe. especially if you aren’t 100% comfortable with print. plus, the detailing on this dress is amazing.
  2. relaxed lace-up tee – old navy ($19.94) another great addition to your closet here. a perfect combination of trendy and comfortable!
  3. striped bardot romper – misguided ($40.00) okay so this is may be more of a splurge item but it is definitely worth it. this romper is perfect for spring and can take you right into summer. promise you will check this one out!
  4. black wrap waist striped satin shorts – misguided ($36.00) another great find that will take you from spring into summer. these shorts are definitely a must have!
  5. short pleated top – h&m ($39.99) this top is perfect to take from work to an evening out. the structure of the top is my favorite part.

coats/dusters:

  1. trench coat – old navy ($58.00) this trench is gorgeous. a little more on the structured side, but gorgeous none the less. if you’re looking for a more relaxed look check out the next couple of choices.
  2. oversized waterfall duster coat nude – misguided ($63.00) this coat is beyond gorgeous. definitely on the more relaxed side if you’re wanting more of that slouchy look.
  3. nude long sleeve d ring detail maxi duster coat – misguided ($54.00) another great coat that is more on the slouchy side. it’s a great color and the detail on it is amazing.
  4. coat with draped lapels – h&m ($69.99) if you need a classic black trench this is the one to get. the structure and belted detail just elevates this classic look.

there you have it guys! a few of my favorite trends and where you can find them.
