Sponsored by Target | Spring Style

This sponsored post is brought to you by Target.  I am thrilled to be an Official Target Blogger.  This month, I’m sharing my Spring Style tips and picks with you.

In August, I shared my Footwear and Homewares picks, and September, Women’s Spring Fashion. October is all about Spring Style!

Boyo and I ventured off to Target on Sunday morning on a Skylanders SwapForce mission.  Unfortunately, we were unable to place a preorder as they’ve been simply swamped by demand, but the staff and management could not have been more helpful or friendly.  They promised to do their utmost to track one down for us and that was even before Boyo pulled his puppy face … now that’s what I call customer service!


What I Bought

I had a mission in mind when it came to my spring style shopping trip to Target – a pretty pastel frock.  This Jacquard Spot Skater Dress RRP $59 hit the spot (see what I did there?) perfectly.  It is feminine in the extreme, with the jacquard spot fabric, the fitted bodice and retro cute box pleats.  The delicate yellow colour would look lovely with a tan but also doesn’t wash out my pale English rose skin.  I’ve added a rose gold toned leather belt for a little extra waist definition, and have teamed it with the gorgeous Target Messina Wedges I added to my wardrobe for my Women’s Spring Fashion picks in September.

Next up, whilst I was trawling the racks looking for a printed pant and tee combo (which is going to be my Go To Outfit this season, when I’m not frocking it up in pretty dresses, of course), Boyo was on a mission of his own.  He found me this really lovely Hot Options silky Bird Print Skater Dress with Bow Belt RRP $49.00.  Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to find it online but I’ve found this very similar Ladies’ Skater Dress with Belt – also available in Blue.  There were quite a few available in my local Target, so if you love it as much as I do, head in store to track it down!

Didn’t he do well?  I love the fit and flare cut, the adorable bow belt and the flattering neckline.  Oh, and how pretty is the embossed bird print?  Perfect spring style!


I treated myself to these adorable little rose bobby pins – a set of 4 for only $10, and just couldn’t leave this lovely embellished bib necklace, which was reduced to $3 from $20.  Boyo found me this straw fedora RRP $25, which I was very tempted to add to my already extensive summer hat collection.  Love the fabric band!  It hasn’t made it on to Target’s website yet, but if you are in need of a new summer hat, check out this adorable Perfect Summer Fedora with Yellow Ribbon RRP $15.  Way to add a pop of colour and keep yourself sun protected in spring style!


Spring Style | Off to the Spring Races

I’ve styled the adorable Jacquard Spot Skater Dress RRP $59 for a day at the Spring Races.  Top off the pretty dress with the lovely Hot Options Floral Print Saucer Fascinator in Cream RRP $35, and make a statement with the Jewel and Faux Pearl Chain Necklace RRP $25 and the amazeballs Hot Options Geometric Chain Strap Clutch in Pink RRP $40.  Then walk away a winner in the stylish and comfortable City Dressing Messina Wedge Sandals in Coral RRP $40.


Next up for the Kimba Likes Styling treatment is this classic black dress, the Ladies’ Skater Dress with Belt RRP $20.  Let’s head off to the races with the darling Structured Bow Pillbox Fascinator in Aqua RRP $40.  With the clean lines of this dress, the accessories can be stepped up a notch … or three, with the blinged out Hot Options Jewelled Box Clutch in Aqua RRP $50.  The lovely Marlo Ankle Strap Wedge Heels RRP $45 will do the talking whilst you do the walking.

Gok Loves | Kimba Likes Gok!

Another part of the fabulous rebooting of our Australian icon Target is Mr Gok Wan.  Do you love him as much as I do?  Such a sweetie, very stylish and bitingly funny!  The man knows his stuff too.  Like me, he is a big champion of the waist.  I don’t have one, but I know how to fake one.  It’s a fashion magic trick!  Click here to see what Gok Loves.  It’s like he’s reading my mind – 50s inspired designs, celebrating the waist and colour pop accessories!

    Fit and flare – absolutely my favourite! So flattering for girls like me with no waist after kids. Love the hat too. Will have to pop down to Target and see if they have it up here. Perfect for lounging around up in the Whitsundays.ReplyCancel

    3 magic fashion words for me: “fit and flare”! I am so incredibly impressed with Target lately. They have really stepped up their game when it comes to women’s fashion and accessories. I love every single one of your picks, Kim-Marie. Awesome post!ReplyCancel
