Victoria Beckham for Target Looks

Earlier this month the much anticipated Victoria Beckham collection for Target dropped and I was so excited to pick up some fabulous pieces to add to my wardrobe. I was super impressed with the quality of the collection and while some pieces are what I would consider seasonal / trendy others have potential to become permanent staples in my wardrobe. For quality - the weight of the materials. the stitching and the pattern matching are things you don't typically see at target - in value priced clothing patterns don't usually match up at the seems but I noticed on my stripped dress at the seems the stripes match up perfectly- this is attention to detail folks! My only complaint is that several of the pieces do use polyester and are thicker materials and I wonder if the target people told VB how warm it gets in America - we're already in the mid-80s in Memphis this week. April has been a crazy month and I purchased 15 clothing pieces from the collection so I haven't been able to wear all of them yet but here's my first batch of outfits and how I'm mixing them into my wardrobe.

Blue and White Stripe Shirt Dress - SOLD OUT
 
This dress was one of the earliest sell outs of the collection. It looks very similar to a current VVB piece, has good length, is flattering and nice structure - who wouldn't want this dress? I have worn this dress 3 times already and each time have been stopped by strangers to tell me how much they like my dress. I see myself wearing this dress a lot this summer. I took my regular size on this dress.

 
Even though you can totally see my husband's shadow taking the pic this is now my most liked photo on instagram so I must not be the only one who thinks it looks pretty cute. There's matching pants to this top but honestly, I think it's too much. Most people on instagram are wearing this top with jeans like I have but I've also seen it with white bottoms which I really like. This top is structured cotton making it great for this time of year. I took my regular size on this top.

 
VB herself has said these pants are one of her favorite pieces from the collection and while I don't think I can carry off the look of wearing with the matching top (which I did purchase to wear on its own) I think a white top lets the specialness of the pants stand out. This top has the same fit and structure of the dress above and who doesn't need a classic white top? For the pants I love that it's a fun twist on a closet staple and while I found the hips to run small it was worth it to size up. Also - I'm 5'10 and wearing wedges and they're still long - this never happens for me. Like I said, I sized up (two sizes) on the pants but took my regular size on the top.
 
 
This shift dress was my Easter outfit this year. It has nice structure and weight to the material and is very comfortable. I was really worried about the length of the dresses but as you can see that was not a problem. I found most of the dresses in this collection to run narrow in the hips so I sized up in this dress and others.

Bee Print Cami - SOLD OUT
 
This pic is what happens when you take your photos on a humid day - and hence why some of the non natural fiber items aren't that wearable right now, not even May and we have serious humidity. That said I love this cotton cami and this is one of my favorite looks and example of taking something from the collection and mixing it in with what I already own. Because the chest coverage in minimal on this top I sized up to get a little more coverage.
 
As I'm writing this I am actually wearing the pink pants from the collection - the fit just like the black pants but are more of a knit material, very soft and comfortable. I have nine more pieces I need to wear and photograph so I'll have at least one more post coming up next week about this collection. Although many of the standard sized items are sold out many plus size pieces are still available.

Custom Hair Care with Formulate

I've had short hair most of my life, but the past few years I have been growing my hair out and one thing has become very clear - long hair is a commitment. And long hair that has been color treated for years is a project, which is why I was so excited when the team at Formulate reached out to have me try their new custom shampoo and conditioner. Even better yet - we have teamed up to give one lucky reader their own custom set for FREE!

Enter GIVEAWAY here! Getting hair care customized for your hair sounds complicated but the process was very simple as a consumer - I took a brief survey about my hair's current condition and what my hair goals were - you can pick up to five. I have a pretty oily scalp so that was my top priority but color protection, heat protection,. frizz and volume are also my concerns. I was then able to select my scent and strength - I like a strong scent in my shampoo that leaves a light linger and selected the green apple - I've been getting complime…

This is Us

Y’all this year I was so excited for our anniversary activity - the 2nd anniversary traditional gift is cotton and there was a cotton field nearby. The website said “mid October” would be the perfect time for pictures so I booked a session for our anniversary weekend on the 21st. We stop by the field the day before to check it out and it was all gone. Even though no harvest date was listed on the website a week earlier it had since been updated that the cotton was harvested that Friday – seriously, they couldn’t have given one more weekend for photos, grr! All the other cotton fields were too far away so I cried how our anniversary was ruined. We wound up moving photos to the same spot where we took our wedding photos and brought along the dogs to get our family Christmas card photo. This session did not go as well as I would have liked – Because I didn’t plan to originally have the dogs sweetie was not freshly groomed. My brand new sweater got snagged by one of the dogs getting in and…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

Why I Blog

Years before I had an instagram account I had a Yelp account and I must admit that my very first review was a terrible 1 star review. While I think honest good and bad experiences are valuable on review sites I realized that's not the person I wanted to be. Instead of only putting negative thoughts into the world I challenged myself that for every negative review to take the time to write five positive reviews. Soon I found myself gushing over businesses I love and writing reviews of businesses I was trying for the first time. Within a few months I was invited to join the Elite squad - now I  have over 250 reviews and have reached gold elite status - this means I've been on the squad for five years. As much as I enjoy sharing reviews I enjoy reading them. I'm a planner and researcher by nature so before I go anywhere I want to know as much as possible. For example, when we go out to California we're going to have tea at the Hello Kitty Grand Café - I have read every …

In The Bag : Makeup

A few weeks ago I showed what I carry around in my purse. This week we're taking a look inside my makeup bag. This bag is from the Dillard's GWP, it's a Lilly print. 


As you can see, I have a wide variety of brands represented. 
Foundation - E.L.F., my actual preference is Heather ( a brand in Memphis) but I lost it so this is my temporary hold over. Not bad for a cheap brand  Blush - Hard Candy, one of those four in one blended boxes. This is a cheap knockoff of the benefit offerings, I will not purchase again. I do like the Benefit Dallas  Power - Arbone from a silent auction basket  Eyeshadow - Estée Lauder in the GWP  Lipstick - Estée Lauder in the GWP  Eyeliner - Estée Lauder , was a purchase to get the GWP  Mascara - Estée Lauder in the GWP, I never buy mascara since its always in someone's GWP and they dry up so quickly 
Here's a look inside the eyeshadow pallet: 


The reason I show these eye shadows is because they're perfect to get the "lilly look…
