True story. Mark and I were both able to travel to Europe for 10 days in our carry on luggage. Granted, I had to sit on my bag with both knees pressing down all my body weight to zip it all the around……but it zipped and fit in the overhead compartment. Side note. Did you know they had a separate carry on luggage check point after you cleared the regular security screen prior to boarding the plane? We had gotten a little nervous with our very generous carry on bags but they fit no problem every leg of the flight. No lie the poor gal in Greece who tried to question our carry on and got the very quick response of “it has fit no problem in the overhead on all of our flights before“. She shook her head but inked our boarding passes with the green “ok” stamp and we breathed another sigh of relief. More to come on that. Here are my top 5 Target pieces you need right now for the Summer.
I was determined to have carry ons because I knew we had multiple legs of the trip and ferry rides involved. So I was very strict with the packing list. I have a post coming up for you on the most versatile packing piece that you will need so definitely be on the lookout for that one.
Before we left, I naturally had the mad dash errand list of Target, CVS, TJMaxx and to my seamstress to beg her to help me with some last minute alterations before I left. I picked up some amazing finds at Target and wanted to share them with you. I pretty much wore them on straight repeat. Plus super affordable!
I’m not going to lie, I have been lusting over the Rag & Bone boyfriend shorts for a long time. Until they go on sale, these have been the best dupe pair that I have found. The perfect length, cut, fit, and they are super soft. Also, they don’t bag out or lose their shape. Major win! They look great in person, I don’t think the online pics do justice and my pair are more distressed. True to size. I ordered a 4 in them.
I grabbed this top on the way out. It was on sale. I didn’t even try it on (which I never do) but time was of the essence. I threw it over my bathing suit top and slide on a maxi skirt and I was ready for a causal water front dinner.
Black bathing suit
If you remember from this post where I highlighted all the Target bathing suits, this black multi strapped one was my ultimate favorite. It’s a joy to get on but the end result is well worth it.
This chambray top
Incredibly soft and has a great fit. Pair it with shorts, tucked into a skirt or I tied mine in the front for a casual daytime look. It is lightweight and perfect for the Summer. Check it here.
This black beach/pool hat.
It folded up great in my luggage and was perfect for looking chic by the pool and keeping the sun off my face. Plus it’s on sale! Find it here.
