Appelsiini of My Eye

Hey, everyone!  A few weeks ago, I woke up at 9:30 on a Saturday and checked my phone.  The Marimekko collection had launched earlier that morning – I thought, “better get online quick to see if there’s anything left!”  Sure enough, there was the Appelsiini two piece set still available in my size, so I got my hands on it as fast as I could.  Oddly enough, this look, along with most of the collection, is STILL available.  Crazy, right? Target’s designer collabs usually sell faster than hotcakes, but by some odd combination of the forces of supply and demand, the collab can still be found both online and in stores (I saw MANY pieces still on the racks at the Chicago City Target downtown).  Despite the questionable economics behind this mystery, I am so, so happy with this look! The top is loose fitting and breezy – excellent for throwing on over a bathing suit or with white jeans for a more dressed up look.  The shorts are equally comfy and they have pockets!!!  I paired this look with my black patent loafers (my oxfords are nearing the end of their life :() for a comfortable and dressy-casual vibe. I can’t wait to wear both of these pieces throughout the coming summer!
