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.

Shelby Jewel

I really wanted to have this post up yesterday but if you've been following my instagram stories at all you will have seen that I remembered this weekend that I still needed to refinish my dining room table if I had any hopes of using it for Thanksgiving (and yes, I am on track to finish it tonight, Woohoo!) So here I am a day late but not a dollar short with a post on some fun fashion finds. Last week I attended the preview party for a new online boutique started by Memphis Blogger Shelby Jewel. Shelby has beautiful taste so I knew I was interested in checking out her boutique. Nothing says welcome like a glass of Champagne! Racks of beautiful tops Swoon worthy Jackets Pretty Tassel Earrings So, I'll admit I was very nervous about this event, Shelby is very small and most boutique sizes are small as well - I am not. But, I really wanted to see the pretty things and thought hey, you never know. As I predicted clothing is available in S - L but I have found that with some bou…

Thanksgiving Essentials

 Next week is Thanksgiving and I am soooo excited! Thanksgiving is basically all of my favorite things in one day - chilling in pjs watching the parade, delicious food, family time, and shopping! For the past few years we have gone our for Thanksgiving because the condo was not wheelchair friendly for my grandmother and my dad moved out of town but this year we're going back to having Thanksgiving at home and while I'm sad we won't have my grandma this year I am excited to be cooking the Thanksgiving meal again. In my humble opinion Thanksgiving is no time for healthy eating and since everyone has their own favorites I say bring on the carbs - this is what my menu this year will be: 1. Champagne Turkey 2. Stuffing 3. Green Bean Casserole 4. Sweet Potato Casserole 5. Mashed Potatoes 6. Peas 7. Corn Soufflé 8. Broccoli 9. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 10. Cranberry sauce (from the can of course, I hate it but my family tells me this is the only way to have it) 11. Pie 12. Ma…

Target Beauty Box

Since I no longer get Ipsy I thought it would be fun to try the Target beauty box this month. The cost is only $7 and includes a $3 coupon towards my next beauty purchase. Here's what's inside:


Super Aqua Snail Mask $6
Snail mucin beauty products are all the rage right now. Basically women are like seaweed doesn't gross us out anymore, what's something even more nasty we can put on our faces? This was my first time trying a snail product and I'll admit I didn't dislike it . This mask has a jell layer instead of being a paper mask but it's just as easy to use as a paper mask. Allegedly this mask hydrates and heals skin while preventing aging - I don't know about all of that but it did feel nice and I'[m not wearing makeup today and not offended by the way my face looks so I guess that's a good thing.

Tom's Coconut Oil Soap $4
I had high hopes for this - if felt nice going on, I like the scent and it left my bathwater all milky. However, it…

Prep Obsessed Mystery Mailers - 2017 Holiday Season

I might have a slight addiction to Prep Obsessed mystery mailers. The are a great value, the products are always really cute, the t-shirts are so comfortable and flattering, and they get me to try items I might not have purchased on their own, so what's not to love? The latest round of mystery mailers are all about celebrating the holiday season. I have received the Thanksgiving , Black Friday and Thanksgiving Hostess and will be purchasing the Christmas and New Year mailers - they also currently have a Christmas Hostess and several fashion mystery mailers available. I have been purchasing mystery mailers from Prep Obsessed pretty much ever since they started offering them and I have never been disappointed in what I received. For Thanksgiving and Black Friday I purchased a combo mailer which means I got free shipping and a bonus item - they are also doing a Christmas / New Year combo that gives a discount. Here's the bonus item, a super cute Prep Obsessed exclusive tumble…

Gratitude Challenge

So this month I was all set to do the whole gratitude challenge thing  but as I started to think of what things I might post about I started to think maybe this isn't the best idea. Is it possible to do a gratitude challenge and come up with 30 unique expressions of gratitude without humble bragging? My day to day life is pretty boring and we don't have cute kids that provide a constant supply of little daily antidotes to be grateful about and I know that this isn't about picking up 30 material possessions  in my life and posting about them. But even when I look past the "stuff" in my life and more behind emotional and non tangible things it still just doesn't feel right - does the friend with the sick kid really need my post about how #blessed I am with good health popping up in her feed? I think not. 
Maybe I'm being Debbie downer on what's supposed to be a lighthearted and fun social media engagement but I just can't get my heart into it becau…
