{Brought to you by Target}

Welcome back to my latest post for Target Australia. And it’s not even all about the Gok range. You’ve all seen the ads, right? It’s pretty fab looking stuff! But when I popped in store my plan was still to style a single item two ways like previously but I got, errrr, distracted by all the pretty shiny things. The clothes are lovely {some items up to a size 20} what really grabbed my attention was the bags and accessories!

So I left it for a while and went for a look through the MODA range. While a lot of the stock at the Maroochydore store is being cleared out {on sale too} I noticed some new items and focused my attention on them. These pants and my current addiction for all things peg pants were a perfect match. I planned a work style post based around them. Casual work wear because you guys seem to LOVE fresh ideas for work clothes.

I decided to head back to the bags and pick up a few more items to style up the work style look. On the way I grabbed a tank {planning on layering it} and some black wedges to add to my ever-growing collection of wedges. SO comfortable and easy to wear. Anyway, soon I was again faced with a great wall of pretty, shiny things and it was decision time!

And with a monochrome theme chosen, I really didn’t have to debate any more, the black and white bag was coming home with me! I swiped my gift cards and happily went about my evening {watching The Heat with my cousins and Aunt – OMG SO GOOD}. I forgot all about my shopping haul in the boot of the car until this weekend when I decided I wanted to wear the pants. Cue mad searching and throwing together of outfits and I was done. You can tell it’s been a rush when my hair is in a bun. Hair up, bam. Done!

So weekend style it was as at the last-minute I threw the essentials into the new bag {I’m pretty sure there’s still a silica sachet floating around in there}, grabbed the camera and off we went. Work style had been ditched in favour of this fun and funky outfit. Depending on your office, you could absolutely throw a blazer or cardigan over it and wear it anyway. But for me, this is casual weekend style at it’s best. Thank god for wedges.

Weekend style tips:

  • Wear fabrics that won’t crush. Ironing on weekends is a no no.
  • Casual doesn’t have to mean frumpy or boring.
  • Add a blazer to your jeans and t-shirt combo and rack up some style bonus points.
  • Keep it simple. On the weekend fussy is just not welcome.
  • Have some fun! The weekends are made for having a good time, start with your outfit.
  • Maxi skirts and dresses are awesome for low fuss style. Layer on a scarf, a cardigan and
  • Use the trends you love but in a more casual way {looser, lighter, less trying}.

What do you wear on the weekends?

    I have a few pants like this from KMart ($19 EACH – bargain) and it’s got me into the knack of wearing pants again rather than dresses/skirts all the time. I wish I could find jeans as comfy as those pants!

    • I love this style at the moment and completely get what you mean about getting back in the pants grove. And YES! That would be amazing.

    I love the cut if those peg pants.

  • I love this outfit! I’m also loving monochrome too, my latest post is a monochrome one and I even mentioned all the lovely black & white stuff target has at the moment. Seriously, I walked in and was like ‘ohhhhhh’. Target have reallllly up-ed their game, I can’t wait to see how their plus size range expands. But yes, loving this outfit and I’m so jealous at how fantastic you look in pants!

    • Well thank you muchly Nat. I think the height might help, if that makes sense, with the pants wearing. And my general no butt-ness. Haha.

      Monochrome is sort of running the show over here at the moment, I have to make a considered effort to add some colour here and there. Must add colour is my recent mantra. 😉

      And I agree, I CANNOT wait to see what the new buyer has in store for MODA. It should be fun.

    LOVE this outfit on you! Very casual cool. Also, I just love you in a big bun! Might be the emergency last minute go to but it looks fab! PLEASE try a big beehive, I think it would look killer on you! I can’t help myself, I’m all about the big hair 😉

    • Thanks Ms Sheri! I love a big bun, with the sock bun aid thingy, it’s just so classic and FAST. I think a beehive would be fun! Remind me to challenge one of the hairdressers I know to give it a go one day.
