3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Mini Satchel & Navy Sequins


Hi Everyone! Hope everyone is having a great week so far. A post has been long overdue, but I've been a little busier lately. Nonetheless, the post is up! Not only am I still lusting over my new mini satchel, but I decided to add a little sparkle into today's outfit with a top full of nothing but sequins. Because the top is a rather busier and louder top, I toned it down by pairing it with dark wash legging jeans, creating almost a monochromatic look. This allows the mustard yellow to really pop against the navy ensemble.


Top : H&M (similar here and here), Bottom : Gap (here)
Shoes : Aldo (similar here), Bag : 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target (view entire collection here)
Accessories : Bracelet from J. Crew (here), Necklaces from Nadri (here) and c/o TAudrey (here)



“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.”

- Audrey Hepburn

I personally love dainty necklaces, and was excited to add this "Believe" Necklace to my collection. What drew me to this necklace was the quote behind it. If you haven't noticed, TAudrey is actually inspired by Audrey Hepburn, hence the name Audrey in TAudrey. I love how TAudrey's collection is so inspirational yet personal, so empowering yet so casual and chic.


Thank you so much for reading! :)

  11. Loveeee!!! I don't even know where to start, haha! The top is amazing first of all and I just absolutely adore the pop of yellow from your new bag (now I regret not getting the yellow!). The shoes have a perfect contrast to the rest of your outfit as well! That first picture is so vogue/chic :) <3 Hope you had a great day!

  12. I LOVE this look so much! You know I'm all about the sparkle! I have yet to meet a sequin that I passed up... LOL! Love the color combo, and the pop of yellow. I will also have to look into TAudrey jewelry... sounds right up my alley! I love a good quote and who doesn't love Audrey?!?


    P.S love the shoes too... I have a very similar pair in the same color

  13. Thanks Jess! The jeans are stretchy and does bleed on the first wear. The 00P fits perfectly, but by the end of the day, I felt that it got a little bit loose. I'm not sure if it was because I had them on all day and was really active, but it only happened to these pair of GAP legging jeans, not so much the other washes I have. After washing it, they were back to their original state. Hope this helps and definitely take advantage of their 40% off since GAP usually excludes their jeans in sales. Hope this helps! :)

  14. You look SO gorgeous in this chic outfit. I love the sparkly top. And I'm so totally jealous that you got that yellow satchel. That's the one that I had my eye on, but they were all sold out by the time I looked online!

  15. Thanks so much for letting me know about the fit and bleeding. :) I'll make sure to wash it a few times before wearing it out. Also, I misspoke yesterday because the code did in fact exclude jeans when I tried from home and I was sorely disappointed. I hope that there will be a promotion soon so that I can get them on sale.

  18. Ah, I'm so jealous that you go the bag. I couldn't find it anywhere, and I even sent out of state friends on the hunt for it, haha. Love your blog by the way. I'm definitely following to keep up with your stylish posts :)
