Summer Style by Misty Austin

Misty Austin our mom stylist extraordinaire is back with us today visiting as a guest blogger as I am on vacation in North Carolina....

Not sure if all have heard but Target's new collection is with Missoni. Oh yes, you heard me right. I had to read it a few times to let it sink in. The line will debut September 13th, 2011. The collection will include apparel for men, women, girls, and babies (sorry, no little boys' clothes), and home decor including bedding, tableware and stationary. Prices will range from $2.99 up to $599.99, but most products will carry price tags of under $40. Here is a little sneak peak from their photo shoot (above and below).

Onto outfit of the month...

With my belly getting larger by the minute, some days you just don't feel like showing it off. So this month I chose an outfit that actually somewhat hides it, if you can believe that. On one of my many shopping trips out, I came across this adorable orange dress from Urban Outfitters (the Silence & Noise Layered Tank Dress). It's a silky sleeveless dress cut in a short, straight fit (you may have to go up a size) and topped with a curved overlay (this is the trick). Trimmed with an exposed zipper at the side. It comes in orange, yellow, blue, green and black. I also love this dress for summer because it's very airy and keeps you cool. You can match it up with a crisp white blazer, a great pair of patterned wedges, geometric earrings and gold bangles or a gold cuff.
