Simply Irresistible

Dress: Target, Cardigan: Leifsdottir, Belt: J.Crew, Wedges: Franco Sarto, Earrings: Kendra Scott,
Ring: Ann Taylor, Bracelets: J.Crew, Watch: Michael Kors

There is nothing I love more than a good summer dress from Target. Seriously. They make up the majority of my wardrobe in the summer months (and also in the fall thanks to my stage-one hoarding of tights and boots). So when I saw this navy ruffled dress in the Target ad a few weeks ago with a big "sale!" sign plastered on it, I knew I had to have it. (Full disclosure: I may now have it in more than one color. Don't judge.) It takes a stronger girl than me to resist the allure of Target. Anyplace that let's me buy apples, toilet paper, and a great dress all at once is simply irresistible.

On a separate note, I've been waiting to announce it until everything is finalized, but I'm so excited to say I'm moving! I'll be heading to Chicago at the end of the summer! I can't wait, even though it's going to be sad and hard to leave my friends and co-workers here. With only three months left in Minneapolis, I feel like there's still so much I haven't done here. One of my best girlfriends and I have made it our mission to spend our last few months here exploring areas we've never visited, trying new things and places, and just generally being ridiculous, because honestly what do we have to lose? I feel like I should say sorry in advance to anyone in Minneapolis who has to hear us yelling, "Whatever, we're moving!" while doing something super inappropriate. She snapped these photos for me when we went for a walk in some fancy neighborhood the other night (probably looking like hoodlums who were casing the joint) before going out for ice cream and beer — the official dinner of champions, in case anyone was wondering. But my rhubarb ice cream had real fruit in it, which basically makes it a health food, so I didn't feel bad at all.


  1. What a flattering outfit! All the items you are wearing are from some of my favorite designers. MN's loss is Chicago's gain.

  2. LOVE that dress Ali - so pretty, and looks great with that cardi :)
