I’m done with all of the recaps from my amazing trip to Greece and now it’s back to business. I won’t lie, it’s not easy going back to your normal routine when you’ve gone to such a beautiful place. Going on vacation gives you an opportunity to step outside of your reality, even if it’s just for a little while. Coming back home is difficult because you have to pick up where you left off. For me, I had to come back home to the realization that my dad is gone. Although I had some bad moments while I was away, it’s not the same as having to come home to my condo which is full of pictures of him. Not to mention the fact that I had to go visit my mother who is beside herself with grief. I guess this is just the way things will be from now on.
Fall is officially here and for us in Atlanta, that means a quick transition. Atlanta weather is crazy. It literally goes from scorching hot to very cool…to freezing cold. There’s no in between. Unlike other cities, we don’t gradually transition into fall…we’re pushed into it. LOL! What I like about fall being here is that it’s time to pull out the boots, blazers and layers! Fall is THE most fashionable time of the year, hands down!
I was very excited for the new Altuzarra for Target Collection when I heard about it. Although I knew I wouldn’t get a chance to purchase anything until I got back home, I had already taken a look at the collection to make my selections. I instantly fell in love with the peasant dress when I saw it. I’m a huge fan of color so I knew that I wanted to get the red peasant dress and not the black one. I love wearing knee length dresses with knee high boots, so that was a no brainer when it came to styling. The red color of this dress is so striking that the color literally jumps off of the pictures. I’d like to note that this dress is made very well. The material is nice and the construction of the dress is good. Target is really on their game.
Here’s my look:

I’m in love with this dress. It’s the perfect length for work AND you can easily wear tights or pantyhose with it. It would also look great with a Moto Jacket or blazer!
Did any of you buy the peasant dress from the Altuzarra for Target Collection? What other pieces did you buy from the collection?
Until next time…
