Who What Wear Mellow Yellow

If you've followed my blog for any amount of time than you know I'm in love with Target collaborations. While I'm certainty willing to pull an all-nighter for the once a year designer collabs in April  I also appreciate the more long term collaborations and I am currently loving the one with Who What Wear. The collection includes a lot of trendy and high fashion looks in regular in plus sizes but at Target prices - yes! I've purchased a few pieces from this collection but right now I am currently obsessed with a yellow outfit from earlier this year - and best of all right now it's on sale!

 
So this looks like a cute dress, right? Wrong! It's actually a top and skirt - check the sale racks at your local store because it seems to be sold out online.
 
I typically never wear yellow but I was just really drawn to this outfit. I felt like my dress selection is a little lacking but I also prefer to spend on versatile pieces right now so the fact that this is two separate pieces really excited me.
 
 
I've worn the skirt both to work (with a white button down blouse) and on the weekends - most recently for our date night with this fun off the shoulder lemon print top (It's from Forever 21 so another bargain). I really love the shape of this skirt and find it super flattering and comfortable - I feel very ladylike and polished when wearing it and the knee length is perfect for me.
 
 
The top brings in the statement sleeve trend and goes great with a black skirt - I've also thought about wearing it with navy.
 
The color being a mustardy yellow works but summer but it's something I can carry over into the fall, which is perfect because it's still pretty warm in Memphis in September and October so I'm always struggling to dress fall-ish but not overheat and the weight of this fabric is perfect for that. I find the quality pretty great too - the seams are reinforced. I had to size up on the top because my size was a tad too tight on my chest - ordinarily I'd be fine with the top just being a little loose since I tuck it in anyway but since I'm already getting a lot of wear I think its worth spending a little extra to get it tailored.
 
No matter how I wear these pieces I tend to get a lot of compliments on these outfits and while I don't live my life for others I will admit it does feel nice. Next time you're in your local target I strongly recommend checking out the Who What Wear collection.

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 …

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Essential Oil Make and Take

This year I've been doing a lot of homemade products and while it started off as being tired of running to the store for laundry detergent and face wash every few weeks its turned into more than that. As I researched and lookedup recipes   I started to discover that I could use homemade products for my health! I get migraines y'all and I will do ANYTHING to treat them. I've unsuccessful taken preventative medicine, destroyed my liver and stomach lining with OTC treatments for years, drained my bank account on prescription drugs, gone to the chiropractor, severally limited my alcohol and I still get them. My remaining options were: Botox, acupuncture, and moving to Colorado. But now I have hope. So where am I finding this hope? In essential oils. 
I've spent the past month really looking into it and decided I have nothing to lose. So as I was looking into different brands a FB friend posted that she was having an Essential Oils 101 class and Make and Take - perfect timin…

Holiday Mail

I love sending Christmas cards, I also love getting Christmas / holiday cards. Growing up Christmas cards were serious business. My Mom kept a book of who she sent them to and who sent one to us, three years and no card you were off the list. It's something my friends and I discuss today, seems like lots of moms ran their card list that way and now I find myself being a little less strict but keeping up with my list the same way. You would think that by 29 I'd have a pretty firm list of people I send Christmas cards to, but nope, it continues to change every year. Of course, the fact that I lost the disk with all the addresses from the prior year hurt a lot, that address list had every single person who attended my mom's memorial service or sent a card, it was a very handy but sad way to keep up with my non immediate family. A few years ago I use to think that I'd send a card to anyone that if I was to become engaged would make it onto my wedding guest list. Now that…

Lane Bryant x Girl With Curves Try On

If you wear a size 12+ unless you aren't on social media you've probably heard that Lane Bryant has launched a 20 piece collaboration with blogger Girl With Curves. With items selling out online on the launch day I knew I had to hurry up if I wanted to see things in store and try them on. 
The in-store display at the Southaven, MS location
The fitting room lighting was not great and while I'm not a fan of the mirror selfies sometimes you've got to work with what you have and I do want to be able to show you how these items fit. But, please don't judge my poor photo quality too much.
The item I wanted the most - like every other curvy girl apparently was the navy blue trench dress and this sold out online and was not in my local store. But, I was able to try on the other items I was most interested in.

The pleated lace black dress had a nice fit and I like how instead of a plain elastic waist it had a faux belt look. I think this dress would look waaaaay better …
