  6. Black/White Bikini Bottom
  7. Green Netting Print Beach Towel

I don’t own a matching bathing suit. In my everyday wardrobe, I just don’t like matching in any sense. Instead, I choose to compliment. That’s why I’m loving the Peter Pilotto collection for Target. Everything can easily be mixed and matched, for a fun Spring/Summer vaca vibe. The cropped bikini tops are right on trend with the season’s playful length, and pair with almost everything in the collection. Have you snagged any pieces from the collection yet?

Sporty chic style is in full force this Fall, and I’m loving the baseball cap trend. The girly chic spin on the classic staple can easily glam up a casual ensemble or mask a bad hair day. I recently scooped up the faux leather version from Target, a great addition to Fall’s edgy style and a steal at under $13!
