Spring’s Perfect Little Black Dress

013e3541075e2371e931f7ed6ccd1ab802fa150e7b_00001

I have found your favorite dress for Spring!  Paired with a lightweight or denim jacket and sneakers now, and then with sandals this Summer, this little black dress is a unicorn!

With the perfect amount of stretch and ruching in all the right places, the Haley dress is great for so many different body types!  I want to show you how you can take this dress from running errand around town to date night with your hubby by just changing up your shoes and jacket!

I have this little Roma anorak jacket in white, and LOVE it, so getting it in this neutral olive green was a must.  It is a lightweight material, but perfect for those cool Spring days.  For daytime, just add some white sneaks and you are set for lunch with a girlfriend or a quick run to Target!

For a nightime look I just put on my new favorite heels, some fun earrings and my white leather jacket and I’m date night ready!

This dress is a classic staple piece that I know will be worn a ton this season!

Fall’s Favorite Boots

I have been waiting, and waiting for Fall to arrive so I would have a good excuse to grab some new boots for this season!  I’m showing you my two latest and greatest in the pics below, and I have sourced a handful of others that I’m thinking need to be in my closet this season!

These Leopard booties were a fun find at Target, and they are perfect all around!

01ac8a56f35b3dc9fe3ed96bd4154fbea1dafca391 I needed to replace my camel booties from last year, and was so excited to find these Vixen Booties at Nordstrom for under $60!  The heel height is just perfect, they are so comfy, and I’m thinking I need the black pair.

 

Row 1:  Wedge Sneaker, Black Bootie, Camel Bootie

Row 2:  Lace-up Bootie, Grey Bootie, Cognac Bootie

Row 2:  Grey Bootie, Beige OTK, Leopard Bootie

Summer’s Last Hoorah

DSC_1824

I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here in Seattle, things are a changin!  I love Summer, and I make sure to drink in as much sunshine, dining al fresco, and iced coffee as I can before it all comes to an end…but….Fall is my absolute FAVORITE season!  Once I get that first hint of light change, or a leaf turning…I am ALL pumpkin spiced and sweatered IN…and it is really hard to turn back!

I attended a fun floral event (coming in a separate post!) and thought this outfit was perfect for a summer night in the field.  I also don’t think there is anything more “french” than carrying your flowers in a market basket…take me to Paris!

These jeans have been a staple for me the past two summers.  This particular brand is sold out, but I did link a couple other almost identical options HERE and HERE.  This darling ruffle blouse is from one of my favorite online boutiques, and it on Summer Sale for $16!  You can find it HERE.

I hope you have soaked up every bit of Summer to get you through to your next favorite season!

Mrs. Wear It Proud!

The weather here in the PNW has been hot hot hot…the Cali girl in me LOVES it, plus I know all the rainy days in my future, so I soak it up!  My face in the first photo is not about the heat…my photographer (my son) caught my RBF (resting b*&!#$ face 😉 and insisted I share it with all of you!

This outfit could be another Target ad, because well, who doesn’t find the best stuff there?  I am planning on giving you a new Target faves post every week, and this one represents a few recent fave finds!

I love this Mrs. tee (that is actually what my hubby calls me, and I love it!)  I wear the title proudly after 24 years of marriage!  It’s funny to me how things like this tee or my WIFE tee are geared toward new brides, when I feel it says SO much more when worn by women who have put the work in, and represent what those titles are all about! Here’s to the married ladies!!

I think this outfit is perfect right now in the heat of summer, but I will definitely be taking this skirt into fall with a denim shirt or jacket!

Target Top Ten Under $35

I have a love affair with Target…I’ll admit it!  Where else can you run in and pick up a new nail polish, a sports bra and coffee creamer?  But honestly, Target kills it every time…whether it’s their designer collaborations or something from their own Merona line…I can always find something on trend and at a great price!

I thought it would be fun to start a series every week (hold me accountable please!) of the top 10 things I have bought or “want to buy”.  This list is a mix of beauty, clothing, and snacks!  So, here you go……

52262779
Baseball Hat

I actually have bought this hat, and have it worn it more times than I should admit!  I love the faux leather and I think the black looks so chic!

51789234
Studded Flip Flops

I have these sandals, and love them!  I wore them in my previous post with my favorite maxi here..and they are really comfortable and look like the high end designer version!

51416500
Sports Bra

Love a good sports bra with cute back straps…and this one is both!

51415614
Peanut Butter Monster

THIS trail mix!!  I’m sorry and you’re welcome all at the same time!  If you love peanut butter like we do…you are going to dig this!!

Mrs. Tee

I love a graphic tee…make it a muscle tee and I’m all in!  This cute one just arrived yesterday and I cannot wait to style it!  I also have this one, and get asked about it every time I wear it!

51857284
Merona Mule Loafers

I just tried these on yesterday..and LOVE them!  I had been looking at the ones at the “Nsale” and they sold out the first day…these are really soft and very comfortable!  I will be going back to grab these!

White Perforated Pouch

This is such a cute sporty pouch, perfect for carrying in your new backpack (below 😉 for easy grab and go!

51120169
Jergens Natural Glow

I bought this lotion a couple weeks ago and shared on Instagram, but wanted to use it awhile before I gave a review!  I love it!  It is an odd sensation to put this on while you are still dripping wet, but it really works!  I made the mistake of lightly towel drying and then putting it on..nope that didn’t work!  Just apply right after you shut off the shower water, and then lightly pat yourself dry!

Hello Doormat

Target nails it with doormats!  This is one of my faves, but they have so many cute variations, and for $12.99 you can change them with the seasons!

51472918
Mossimo Neoprene Backpack

This backpack! I shared my renewed love for the backpack on Instagram, and this one is a good one!

There you go…my top ten Target finds under $35!! Let me know if you find something you can’t live without!

Pajama Party

One of my most favorite times of the day is when I put on my pajamas for the night.  If I am being perfectly honest, some days that is earlier than later!  I have never been a fan of sleeping in old t-shirts and sweats.  I think making your night-time routine relaxing and pretty contributes to a peaceful night.
 In the winter, I am all about the flannel pajamas, but in the summer light and pretty.  I have 3 grown boys in my house, besides my husband, so coverage has always been the name of the game for me, and I am NOT a fan nightgowns so you’ll see none of those in my list here…sorry.

1.  Vintage Pajama Set  I love this set, it reminds me of some from the movies.  Have you seen the movie, The Holiday?  I love the line where Arthur describes to Iris what a “meet cute” is…that’s what I think of with these!
2.  Lounge Cami  Nothing like a cute cami to throw on with some lounge pants or sleep shorts.
3.  Pajama Set Well obvi I would choose some from my favorite Tarjay!  These cute things are on their way to me!
4.  Long Sleeve Pajama Set another cute pair from Target!  I love the sweet pattern on these!
5.  PJ Salvage Set I really love the cute pattern on these…coffee and eye masks!
6.  Plush Hoodie Set I have and love these!  They are hands down the softest things ever!
I recently picked up these two pieces at Wal-mart.  I actually wore them to an event that was a “pajama party”.  They are super soft and the perfect set for lounging at home, or great if you might have company at your house!
If you are looking for some new pajamas, I hope I have inspired you with some cute options!
