Loving: Spring at Target
If I wait until I wear to share these beauties they'll probably be gone. I went into Target last Friday to grab some essentials for the blizzard (magazines, $$ section finds) before heading to the grocery store for snacks. Funny that I went in for a blizzard and walked out with spring wear. Oh well, I have two warm getaways coming up and spring will (hopefully) be here before we know it. I only really do Target clothes shopping in the warmer months - I just never find winter things and love how easy their dresses are. (Fact my family and a certain husband used to make fun of me for target shopping but now they are amazed at what can be found - I don't like everything but when I do it's usually a love).
The bad news is I couldn't find my favorite dress on the website (long sleeve florals) the good news is I found that off the shoulder dress that speaks to my style as well as a couple others that became an impromptu order last night. Truth - I've never ordered Target online and I'm a big "tryer oner" so hopefully I like it when it comes. Maybe the dress just is not online yet? If i see it i'll share.
The black embroidered dress is lightweight and a style that differs from my usual taste - with so much in my closet, I'm looking for some different pieces. These crochet shorts are right up my alley and with the matching top make a cute yet comfortable outfit. In addition to the burgundy I even picked them up in black too because who can say no to shorts without a button??
Now for the things that I immediately thought "need" when searching for the favorite dress from the blizzard shopping. Firstly the blue floral is the most similar AND it's currently on sale with another 20% off making it… just $16. This mint dress combines all my favorite things & just speaks my style and this off the shoulder look is a close second.
Fuller House & TV Talk:
I am counting down until the Fuller House premiere, anyone else?? We passed by the set when we were in California and had I of been thinking I would have tried to go to a taping. Candace Cameron Bure shared this behind the scenes sneak peak this week to mark the one month countdown. Something else I can't wait for, The People vs O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story which is getting a lot of buzz right now. I am obsessed with a scandal when it hits, and usually get the book to read about it and am glued to the TV watching reports (OJ, Duke Lacrosse, Scott Peterson, Etc…). Props to Bravo for bringing in the new housewife, Kathryn Edwards AND bringing back Faye right as the mini series is about to premiere.
Stella's One year Mark:
I think it goes without saying that we're obsessed with Stella and it feels like we've had her forever. We've had our girl for one year today! I can actually remember the pickup clearly, Derek was going into work late, we drove about an hour to get her, her car carrier got delayed in a snowstorm so we used a laundry basket, all was well… and then Derek went to work. I was the worst puppy mama and had no clue what to do… I called my parents to come over! After that I got the hang of it and the rest is history - it's hard to think of life before Stella.
+ I'm a Bethenny Frankle AND Skinny Girl fan so I can't wait to get my hands on some Skinny Girl candy. Although, I don't think I'm as big of a fan of her red her for the launch.
+ The blizzard might be over but Stella's love of playing with the snow certainly is not. We've been spending a lot of time walking on the white powder and these snow boots have come quite in handy.
+ It's girl scout cookie time and this list of wine pairings is perfect. What is better than wine and cookies???
+ Seeing how many steps I get on my fitbit each day is a huge favorite of mine. You can enter here to win your own plus some other great workout prizes right here. The giveaway ends Monday night at midnight, good luck!
+ After being stuck at home last weekend (which I loved) I'm looking forward to getting out and about this weekend.
Cheers to the weekend! Enjoy!
