Tie Dyed in St. Barth

um. what?
Top: Calypso for Target, Shorts: c/o Blush, Shoes: Jimmy Choo, Bag: Topshop, Jewelry: Saks, F21, Gucci, From Bali, Sunnies: Ray Ban

I'm loving my new Calypso for Target shirt that I got for Mother's Day...that's right, I said it. Mother's Day. Before you get any crazy ideas and before my eggs hide any further then they already are, my sis always gets me a mother's day gift due to the fact that I am an ahh-mazing auntie (let the horn tooting commence) to my niece and my nephew!  And by amazing I mean,  spoil em rotten, feed them all the things they aren't supposed to eat and let them run wild. See? I'm the best!  
I didn't sprint (words that refer to exercise of any sort are only used when clothing is involved) to Target when this collection came out cause I wasn't that stoked on it, but once I put this top on I didn't really want to take it off. The crochet bib really adds a nice feminine quality to the edginess of the tie dye....A great combo indeed!

Absolutely gorgeous. Really love the top. Sure beats the I love mum coffee cup I got!!

Eleanor said...

I was eyeing up that top at Target just yesterday!
I didn't rush for Calypso either...I feel like some of these capsule lines are overpriced for the crap fabrics they are made with.

Ummm...my kids are always searching for another cool auntie.
AND, I'm pretty good at gift giving myself....interested??? ;)

I need those shorts ASAP. That shirt looks way better on you then how it looked on the hanger...maybe I will try it on now.

RosaLovesDC said...

Hmmm... I had the same feeling as you about the Calypso collection for Target, but now that I see it on you, I might have to reconsider. That top just looks so good on you.

Andi said...

Wow, this top looks so good on you! Loving how you've styled it-as usual.
I didn't buy any clothing from this collection for myself, but I did go nuts in the little girls' section--the bathing suits and rompers and dresses were all so darn cute.
I am saving up all of the Target pennies for the Missoni collabo in Sept-cannot wait.
