Rare Flowers

“The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” –Walt Disney


A couple of weeks ago I promised that if all went well I was going to try and feature my first shirt on the blog! Now, here we are, two weeks later, and I’m keeping my word. My very first featured shirt….a historical moment for just me, michelle christine!!! LOLOLOL!

As I previously mentioned, I generally wear all black and dress it up with accessories, but I did go out on a limb and try something a little different with this outfit choice. EVERYONE was talking about the Peter Pilotto line that was at Target and I really wanted to see what all the hype was about.

Usually, when Target collaborates with designers, there is nothing left on the racks for the average shopper after the fashionistas who wait in line to get in the store for the grand reveal have picked through everything. However, to my surprise, when I went to Target about a week later, there was still a decent amount of the PP line still available AND I really liked it.

It was NOT my style at all. Nothing about it screamed my name. Yet, everything about it screamed at me to try it on. So, I did. And, I couldn’t resist. I wanted to try something out of the box for myself and this certainly was! So, I bought the long sleeve flower shirt that you see pictured.

To be honest, I was a little nervous it was going to be one of those outfits that you buy and think you will wear and then it stays hanging in your closet with the tags on it because you never get the guts to wear it, BUT, on our first nice day in Chicago, I wore it to an outdoor patio bar with NO jacket. It was delightful. I felt fun. I felt comfortable. And I felt like spring had arrived!


When I started writing this post last week, they not only had my shirt still available on Target’s website, but they had it on clearance. However, as I write this now, I am bummed to say that it is no longer available.

They do, however, have quite a few other PP options still available and the good news is that most are on clearance! So my suggestion for you is if you see something you like snatch it as soon as you can, because as you can see with the example of my shirt, you just never know how long it will be available on the website.

There are some really good deals, so check it out. And, even if it might not be exactly your style, you might just surprise yourself like I did. Everyone once in a while, it’s fun to step outside the box and try something new!

Let me know if you score any goodies!

Until next week…Xx!
