Ave Maria

Dress: Tucker for Target, $40 // Shoes: JCPenney, $10 // Clutch: Payless, gift

Strolling through the downtown area of Isla Mujeres, I was immediately drawn to this wall inside a card shop. When I asked my sister to take my outfit photo in front of it, she pointed out that I was kind of camouflaged, but I didn't care. This vibrant, beautifully jumbled collection of imagery and objects really captured the look and feel of Mexico for me. I actually love how the color and pattern of the background play against those of the dress. Speaking of the dress, Tucker for Target was my favorite designer collaboration, so I couldn't resist snagging this beauty when it became available again. I've seen it pop up on several other blogs recently and am glad to be part of the club!

One more quick note: LuLu*s posted a spotlight of me on their blog featuring (gasp!) a video interview. Check out the post here and the video below. Thank you to the LuLu*s ladies for such a sweet write-up!

I've missed both releases of the Tucker for Target collaboration (since I'm living in Mexico right now), and this dress is one of my favorites. I'm happy you scored it - it looks gorgeous on you!

Congrats! You are lovely in that Tucker dress, I wish I still had mine but I swapped! The yellow bag with it is Spring ingenious.
