Last week was spent seaside in Aptos, California, for our kids Spring Break. We had a fabulous time, relaxing and decompressing, at a gorgeous beach house we’d rented for the week. We enjoyed amazing weather – it felt like the beginning of summer.
Aptos, like most California beach towns is super casual. I pretty much lived in my swimsuit, boyfriend jeans (yes, I own white and denim, in the Citizens ‘Emerson’ jean!), and flip flops.
This Trina Turk black sweater, doubled up nicely as a swimsuit cover-up!
Being we were out of town, I missed the launch of the Marimekko for Target collection this past weekend. I would not have traded my family beach time for anything, but now back in town, I stopped by my local Target store, to check out this very happy and colorful launch – here’s a look!
I have to say, all 4 color palettes are interesting, but I was drawn to the black and white collection.
I set up this Flat-Lay for you all, smack in the middle of the accessory department.
I liked the pop of creamsicle orange in this Merona tote, paired with black and white.
And how fun is this black and white floppy hat?
Last year, I searched high and low, for a white fringe kimono.
(you may recall my obsession with the Lilly Pulitzer for Target white kimono!)
Where was this (left), when I needed it? (not available to link. Found in the Swim department, I believe it was Merona) And this fun tank/cover-up, HERE| $14.99
I love the faux leather handles on this beach bag!
This bikini and sarong happened to be in my daughters size. I picked up all 3 pieces!
Here’s a look at the home/patio section in Target:
Of course I had to make a pass thru the shoe department.
I’m loving these slides from A+ Aldo
‘ Alba’ Black and white, $19.99 (wrong box in photo)
These cork wedge thong sandals are an exact replica, of a style from Sam Edelman, last year.
The block heel on the ‘Tina’, is so on trend right now,
wear it with everything from denim and skirts to dresses (not yet available online)
Looking for a wood bottomed platform sandal, with a 70’s vibe?
As seen on Katrina, an Ask Suzanne Bell reader, at the Bohemian Party earlier this month.
Mossimo ‘Cali’ | $34.99
Her flare jeans? Also Mossimo for Target!
