Fashion Find Friday: Cute Critters

Yay, it's Friday. And I'm blogging again. How dare that pesky job keep me busy over the past week. But alas month end is over and I have a little time to do more than work, eat and sleep. And it's just in time to because I have a super cute deal y'all don't want to miss out on. 

So target, raise your hand if you love target (me). Keep your hand up if target is a black hole where hours and hundreds of dollars disappear (still up). Keep you hand up if you know target is your krypton and avoid it (hand down). So now that we're agreed that target is this awesome / evil place I'm going to give you another excuse to go. These: 

Agh, aren't they adorable? These don't have a brand or name attached to them so I'm calling them critter bracelets. Here's some close ups: 

The froggy: 

The buzzy bee: 

And the Pink Flamingo: 

So yeah, remember those Kenneth Jay Lane bracelets I blogged about? Well he does other animals too so it's not just an elephant thing it's just a cute accessory thing. And these cute accessories are $12.99 each. But wait it gets better . . . 

Right now target has buy one get one 50% off on jewelry. So I grabbed my three plus an extra flamingo. And even better the cartwheel app has an additional 10% off jewelry. So I got 4 of these for $38.30 including tax. 

Now for the record I saw these in store twice and walked away. But a lot of my Lilly friends are crazy for them - they do go well with Lilly - and kept posting pictures. With each picture they got cuter and cuter. Plus word is they're sold out online and in some stores, so then getting them became a need y'all. Apparently the fashionistas of Memphis have not caught on because the target I went to had 3 of each. If you're interested, I recommend going sooner rather than later, especially so you can take advantage of the BOGO sale. 

They're a little tricky to find, here's the display where they are to the right mid display: 

The bee was actually a display over. 

Also, I'd like to humblebrag that I went into target bought these, only these and left. Go me! Mandysue 1 , Target I've lost count.

Spring Forward with a Wooden Watch

Hello Friends! Have you been making it to work on time this week or did your body have a hard time with the adjustment? Personally I am not a morning person so I have an easier time with fall daylight savings than I do spring. Here in Memphis the trees are starting to bloom and spring is in the air, which means its time to reflect the season in my wardrobe. I've swapped out my purse from black to blush, added a few new floral tops and got a new watch to help keep me on time as I adjust to the time change. For my watch, I selected the Frankie Purpleheart & Plum watch from Jord. Not only are oversized watches so in right now but I love the use of the Purpleheart wood and plum face to give a twist on a classic style watch. As y'all know love all shades of pink and I think the coloring of this watch goes with it so beautifully and the blush tones of my outfit really make the distinctness of the Purpleheart wood stand out.
I've been very intrigued by the wooden watch tre…

My blogging philosophy

It's my blogger / insta versary! Well sort of, but not really. I started this blog under a different name in 2009 and there were times when I posted a lot and times when I neglected it but mostly I used it as a creative outlet, a journal if you will that I didn't mind sharing with my Facebook friends. I blogged throughout my 20s about a lot of things 20-somethings experience - dating, job frustrations, the transition to adulthood but as I crossed to the other side of 30 and settled down into marriage those topics were no longer relevant- not that I am ashamed at all of the person I was or the journey that led me to where I am today but as my life shifted my priorities shifted as well and while I still very much wanted a creative outlet I decided to reinvent my blog life into more traditional blog topics and used my great closet makeover of 2017 as my kickoff project / inspiration  . . . so that actually happened a little over a year ago.
Meanwhile I had also been on instagra…

Pretty in Pink Easter Dress

Hello and Happy First Day of Spring!!! I'm so lucky to live in an area where in general the weather feels like what you would expect for each season - it's hot in summer, cold and winter and while some years we don't get the perfect day on the first day of spring it is starting to warn up and some flowers have begun to bloom. As much as I'm a planner I have a terrible time shopping for clothes in advance - when it's cold I want to wear sweaters and when it's warm I want cotton dresses gosh darn it so typically Easter creeps up on me and the week of I find myself scrambling to find something to wear. Yes of course I could just pull something I love from my closet but Easter represents new life and new beginnings and I always like to treat myself to a new dress.   So, when you've having all the Easter feels what's a girl to do except go take some pictures - and even better if you're lucky enough to live near a Jeff Koons Smooth Egg with Bow sculpture…

Spring Style at Wal-Mart (yes, Wal-Mart!)

Recently I've seen some of my favorite bloggers buzzing about some new clothing lines at Wal-Mart, so of course I needed more information. Turns out, Wal-Mart is re-vamping their clothing offerings across the store and with that are two new ladies lines - Time & Tru and Terra & Sky. Time & Tru offers straight sizes but does go to size 22 while Terra & Sky is the plus size offering starting at size 14 and going up to size 26. In theory if you're a size 14 to 22 you could shop both lines so since I fall into this category I decided to test it out. First off, it's important to note that Time & Tru also has accessories - jewelry, handbags, shoes and even swimsuits / cover ups. Look at these super cute earrings I scored - they were $4 y'all!!!!! Look at all the earrings! I had a very difficult time sticking to just one pair, I think next time I'll grab the black and white flowers and a pair of tassels. So now let me show you some things I tired on…

Sweater Weather

Although I could do without the snow and single digit temps I do love winter because a lot of my favorite clothes are winter clothes. There's something about a cozy sweater that makes me feel good so of course I'm loving the current trend of statement sleeve sweaters.

With trends I really have to be careful to control myself, especially with these because it's a style I REALLY like. Without the little voice in my head reminding me that I do not need a closet of practically identical pieces I would own several of the tiered sleeve sweaters, thank goodness for that voice! For the tiered sleeve look I went with black because it's versatile and since this is such a trendy piece and there's no guarantee this will be in style come next winter I wanted something I would get a lot of wear out of this season. Likewise when buying a bell sleeve cardigan I wanted something I could wear throughout winter and possibly into spring - this sweater with jeans and a comfy tee unde…
