What I Didn't Wear: Thakoon for Target Floral Dress

So this outfit was tried on sometime earlier this week when it was really nice out, and I was hoping to wear it the next day, and wanted to photograph it to see if I liked it or not. Taking a photo can be really helpful in a way that's different from just looking at the mirror. Pictures don't lie! (Ok, maybe sometimes they do.) Unfortunately the next day the temperature dropped like a bazillion degrees, and I couldn't wear this outfit! I decided to post the pictures anyway, just for fun. I really liked the way this turned out and I will be wearing this soon when the weather permits.

What I'm wearing:
*Cobalt Madewell Blazer (similar here)
*Thakoon for Target Floral Dress (similar here)
*Forever 21 Rocker Nights Belt
*Appepazza Parma Sandal (similar here)
*Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch in Burnt Orange (similar here)
*Michael Kors Horn Jet Set Watch (similar here)
*Forever 21 Sunglasses

When I saw this dress in my sister's suitcase when we were in Las Vegas last year, I definitely did the grabby hands thing and decided the dress had to be mine! I love the vibrant print and it is just so darn comfortable. It's pretty much a big lumpy bag that needs to be belted, but I replaced the tiny fabric tie with this studded belt from Forever 21. Isn't the cobalt blazer so much fun? I had been eyeing it at Madewell for awhile, and then it *finally* went on sale and there was one left in my size! It is a great stiffer cotton material and a great topper over dresses.

Sophia and I in Vegas!

I was on the lookout for a pair of nude shoes for the summer and these fit the bill perfectly! 

I love these $6 sunglasses!

I decided not to post what I wore yesterday, and I'm not really wearing anything worth photographing today. I'm lounging about in sweatpants and an old polo shirt, not so cute but oh so comfortable!

Last night my sister & I went to go see Hot Tub Time Machine, which was absolutely hysterical. I have a huge crush on John Cusack, and "Daryl" from The Office is pretty funny in it. I didn't have high expectations for the movie, but it was pretty entertaining and definitely didn't take itself too seriously. The premise is entirely ridiculous and I love the title, it's so descriptive!


  1. That blazer is beautiful! Hopefully you get to wear the outfit soon.
    I've been wanting to see hot tub time machine, glad to hear it's funny!

  2. Gorgeous look! I really regret not buying any of the Thakoon stuff from Target. I love those shoes too!

  3. Rosa, I love those shoes! They're the perfect nude on you, I'd love to find something similar.

  4. I totally agree that a photo session is so much better than a mirror! But I don't have a floor length mirror...hehe. I can't wait to see you rock this on sunny days!

  5. That dress is great on you -- it's genius paired with that beautiful blazer. I wish I hadn't passed on that dress when Thakoon's line was at Target.

  6. New to your blog...I love the Thakoon dress on you (and am longing to go to Vegas...I am only 4 hours away...)....

  7. Eek! I think one of my bigger fashion regrets was not getting that Thakoon for Target dress- it looks great on you! And the cobalt blazer over is perfect. ♥

  8. I am in love with that blazer, it is such a vibrant color.
    This outfit is wonderfully put together and I love the dress, but then again I am a little biased about this print since I have it in the top.
