February Style Challenge- Target Favorites

Posted on: February 6, 2014

Well, I don’t have much from Target in my closet, but it just so happens that one of my favorite skirts is one of those new items from Target that ended up at the Goodwill store.


This skirt also fit in with my desire to wear green today, as February 5th is the anniversary of the day my father passed on.  Green has a been a strong thread in my life and connection to him as it was his favorite color. I owned a green leather couch for many years and designed my entire room around it early in my marriage...


I tried 3 different tops with this skirt before finally deciding I wanted green to be more prominent and grabbed the scarf and opted for a plain navy top.  I would have loved to have worn my navy suede knee high boots, but alas we had a rainy day, although the afternoon was quite sunny.  The navy boots are yet another nod to my father as we would dance to Elvis songs on Sundays and Blue Suede Shoes”  was one of our favorites. 


Isn’t it funny how a fashionista can turn memories of her father (he died when I was just 13) into inspiration for outfits????

Dear Readers, I am liking the Style Challenge and will continue  with ones that suit what I own or feel a connection. After all, I am a mood dresser and never like to be boxed in too much .so just refuse to set myself up for things that become a chore rather than the fun that fashion should be for each of us. 

Accesorize is the challenge for tomorrow , or today when you read this , but remember I post a day behind…I think that is an easy one for someone like me who proudly calls herself a maximal dresser….


I am grateful that I got caught up on some extra sleep.  

I am grateful that my son is behind me right now continuing to read after a day and a half of resistance…

I am grateful that the softy in me didn’t respond when he wanted to shorten the length of his reading assignment and that I pushed him to read an amount appropriate for his age!!!! He needs to know he is capable!!!

I am grateful  that my older son just pointed out to me that my son is reading aloud to the dog, who is paying close attention to him… so cute!

I am grateful for the loving and giving father that left an amazing legacy to me in how he taught me to be kind to myself and recognize my strengths and surround myself with people willing to treat me well. 

I am grateful for memories like our dancing to Elvis….

Green and navy is one of my favorites. I just bought a dress with that color combo 🙂


I have loved this skirt since you had it’s debut on the blog. Love how you associate green with your dad too. Great look!

Awwww, great memories, Tracey.
I love this shade of green with navy. Would like to have that particular scarf in my own closet. 🙂

Pretty! My daddy died 25 years ago last September. He also loved green. We had green carpet in our home when I was growing up. He said green was restful and that you couldn’t have too much of it. He said to look around at all the green God put in nature and you could see that was true! 😊. Thanks for that memory inspired by your outfit and post.

Thanks for sharing your experience!

oops, sorru, I forgot! 😦
