Fashion Friday: Crazy for Calypso!

Happy Friday everyone! I am SO ready for the weekend! I’ve decided to link up with Kori over at Blonde Episodes for Fashion Friday. (Congrats on the book btw!) This was the perfect opportunity for me to talk about something I’ve been eager to discuss all week–the new Calypso St. Barth for Target line! It appeared in stores around the country this week, and I had been trying to get there ASAP to check it out. I finally went last night (thank goodness the Greenville Target is now open until 11pm for my night owl shopping trips!), and while I had admittedly high expectations, I liked what I saw. The preppy resort collection includes pieces for women and girls, as well as things for the home, and everything I saw was super cute and colorful. I tried on a couple different things that I didn’t end up getting, including an embroidered turquoise tank (it was cute, but just ok) and a patterned tunic with crochet detail (I like it, but thought it seemed a little to silky, almost like a nightgown). However, I did end up getting two dresses that I absolutely love! Check them out…

Tie-dye turquoise dress…super cute! I liked that it can be dressed down for the beach or…
…you can dress it up more with wedges…love.
I saw this dress in a magazine ad, and I had to have it. I love the navy and white color combo and the embroidery detailing…and I think it’s perfect for a vacation we may or may not be taking later this year…

They also had some really pretty things for the home that I resisted buying but I thought was absolutely adorable…

I so wanted this bowl so I could use it while I was wearing the matching dress… 🙂

I have a feeling that I’ll be making another trip to Tar-jay before Calypso leaves stores…Happy Shopping y’all! 🙂
