Goal Style. Each week I use Polyvore to put together looks that I hope to wear when I get to goal. They serve as inspiration and motivation, and they help me develop my own sense of style along the way. I enjoying working with thematic groupings, so if you have ideas of style themes for future fashion Friday posts, please put them in the comments.

This week’s Goal Style was inspired by a pin I found on Pinterest of a beautiful balcony in Greece.  It immediately had me fantasizing about being on a romantic vacation with my future sweetie.  We’d wake up early to catch the sunrise on the beach, and then come back to our room to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. If that doesn’t make a girl smile, I don’t know what would!

I would never usually choose a maxi dress, because I’m much too short to pull it off, but this one from Anthropologie came in petite, so when I’m at my goal, it just might work.  Everything else just fell into place after that.  And as always when it comes to the fashions I find on Polyvore, money is no object.  I mean, this IS about fantasy, right? And this girl will never stop dreaming.

This weekend ushered in a heatwave that will bring temps in the 90s, so this week’s Goal Style was all about cool comfort.  You may recognize those shoes from a previous Goal Style, and because I love their quirky shape so much, I just had to use them again.  I absolutely love the multi-bracelet trend that I’ve been seeing lately, and I love that the ones that I found on Polyvore have an Indian feel.

I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve been having creating these goal outfits each week.  Especially when money is no object.  Putting together these sets on Polyvore really helps me figure out what my own style will be once I can wear almost anything. So now I’d like to hear some suggestions from you – what should the themes be of upcoming Goal Styles?  Leave your suggestion in the comments…

I’ve had a really relaxing spring break this week, and I used it once again as the inspiration for the title of today’s set. This week’s Goal Style features a really fun, spring dress that I would love to wear on a Saturday filled with lunch, shopping, and being seen. Since the dress has so much color, I kept the accessories neutral, opting for the straw bag and espadrille wedges.

This week’s Goal Style is all about Easter.  What better excuse to don a pretty, springtime dress?  Sunday’s weather is supposed to be beautiful, so if I had the means, this is what I’d be wearing at my goal weight.

If you look on my Stats page, you’ll notice that my ultimate reward for myself once I get to goal weight is an entire outfit from Anthrologogie.   So of course I’ve been spending more and more time on their website to see the types of outfits I’d put together if I were able to shop there now.  The perfect setting for this week’s Goal Style.

The outfit itself is something that I could see myself wearing to work or on the weekends.  It seems cute and casual, yet put together.  I love the retro feel of the skirt and the unexpected pairing of turquoise and brown (although I love those two colors together).  And I love a wedge, especially because I’m a shorty and can use all the height I can get.  Wedges let me appear taller, yet remain comfortable.

This week’s featured Goal Style is centered completely around the bag that I found at Anthropologie.  I love it.  If I were Rachel Zoe, I’d die for it.  I like it so much that I’m going to save up for it and buy it.  The rest of the outfit just came together as things that would look good with the bag.

Although I do have to give a huge nod to the shoes, too.  They’re awesome and weird and flat out A-mazing.  Another little something that I’d like to save up for, but they’re probably something better left for my goal weight.  I can’t image that my chubby feet would fit well in them right now. But that’s why this is “goal” style. Inspiration for the future.

I do love the shirt, too.  It’s unique and different, yet still basic black.  I could be dressed up or down.  And the jeans? Those just look really comfy.  Because I know one thing about my body and that’s that my thighs and my butt aren’t going anywhere, even at  goal.  There will always be lots of junk in this trunk, and that’s okay, because I love my curves.   So, I’m never going to be squeezing into skinny jeans, and that suits me fine, because I like the look of a wider-cut jean on me anyway.

This outfit just makes me want summer to get here already!! Although, I shouldn’t complain, because we’ve been having pretty nice weather here lately.
