Target wear with Brandzaffair Part 2 & Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me link up

June 30, 2015

If you read yesterdays post (here) then you may have discovered that I choose three items from Target in collaboration with Brandzaffair and today am modeling for you the other item I received from Target. My first crop top, along with the wedged sandals I received from Target as well.


Before I go into full outfit details here is a little bit about Brandzaffair. Brandzaffair’s mission and whole site is based around the “Ultimate Online Shopping Experience” meaning they include šall of your favorite store links (stores like Nordstrom, Old Navy, Express, J.Crew, Banana Republic, Lilly Pullitzer, Target and more) on one page and allow you to shop with just a click to each logo for the desired brand. The site was easy to navigate but when Brandzaffair allowed me to pick out an item(s) I had a hard time choosing. I finally narrowed down my wants to three pieces and today I am styling two of the pieces today and I styled another item I got in yesterdays post here.  I found it easy to just click on the logos and shop and even explore the newest deals that Brandzaffair provided on their site.
Brandzaffair will even donate 2.5% of the net profit to a customers desired charity once a purchase is made with the listed logos on their site to charities here.


I just love the flare and comfortableness of this crop top I choose from Brandzaffairs page of stores, mine coming from Target as mentioned above. I choose a plus sized top but could have gone lower in size but with online shopping there comes the unknown sometimes but the fit is actually nice on this top regardless if it is a bit bigger.


You may not know this but I love the color blue to wear so I am happy with the little details of blue in the top and so I paired it with blue and gold accented jewelry and my new blue shorts from Old Navy. These shorts have cute tassel drawstrings that you can barely see but these shorts are a medium since Old Navy large sizes are a bit big on me.


I added my new wedges from Target courtesy of Brandzaffair and just love them. I sized up to a 8 when I ordered these summer bad boys because while I am a size 7, somehow Target’s shoes sizes don’t match up real well and 8’s always fit me better.


Thank you Brandzaffair for this opportunity! Which look was your favorite from this collaboration from the photo below?

Shannon looks absolutely lovely in her maxi dresses and while I am not much of a boho style person I do appreciate it and especially on Shannon ALL the time. This lovely dress is just a dose of the lively, boho style Shannon wears on her blog so I hope you will check out this look more and her blog here.

Yana posts a very cute post all about ridiculous trends that I found amusing, one being the dainty little clutch purses (even though she styles one here) but I love her response to my comment on these annoying but cute purses, Yana: “This bag is like a bad boyfriend, you know he kinda ruins everything for you, but he’s so cute haha.” AMEN yana haha! Check out her complaints here and check out her lovely style while you are at it.


I love Alena’s new take on wearing a kimono over a maxi dress, how simple is this yet a whole new way to wear a kimono to get the most out of one too. I am definitely trying this. Check out her post here.


Carrie posted three recipes to some delicious looking infused water drinks that I cannot wait to try. Perfect for this 90-100 degree heat we have been having. See the recipes here.


While on the topic of infused water, check out Sarah’s detox water recipe that she tweaked and made her own here. it is super easy too.

  • Yana June 30, 2015 at 2:46 am

    Thank you so much for featuring my look! Glad you liked the post. Clothes were invented for certain functions, but the fashion industry often goes against these functions. Shoes that are impossible to walk in? Bags that barely fit anything? And I find that amusing, a piece loses any practical use and the focus shifts to the design.

  • Jill June 30, 2015 at 6:17 am

    That crop top is adorable and looks great on you! I love the print! Thanks for hosting the linkup!

    I really like the crop top. It looks great on you. As for Target shoes, I have been suckered into buying their shoes because of the low price, but they always seem to fail me on wear and tear and fit, so I am done with their shoes. Their clothes are great though. The kimono I featured on my latest blog post is from Target.

  • Becky @ bybmg June 30, 2015 at 8:42 am

    I love how the top and your shorts go together! Great look!

    I think my favorite look is the one with the print top and blue shorts. The reason being is because I’ve been wearing so many shirts like that lately. They are so breezy and perfect for summer while still being elegant and comfortable.
