As you may know from earlier posts, I spent yesterday at the Ohio State University football game.  The game was so much fun and topped off with a Buckeyes win!


The sun was shining (my face is now a bit tender from sunburn) through the entire game.  After the game, we got caught in some rain during the 765 mile walk back to the car and the wind was whipping us around like rag dolls.  Other than that I had a great time and I totally felt dressed for the event.  I didn’t get any pictures of me actually wearing my look; but here’s the look that I did wear.


Red Pants – Target, White tee – Target, Sweater – Forever 21, Gold Watch – NY&Co, Bracelet – Etsy, sandals – wal-mart, earrings and sunglasses – ??  I can’t remember for the life of me 🙂


I had a great time and can’t wait to go back!  What did you do this weekend?




Hola Readers!!

TGIT!  Can I get an “Amen?”  I know, most people are not usually over excited for Thursdays but I love them!  First of all, with my work schedule this is technically my Friday, after tonight I am done until Sunday night!  Plus, this is the one day during the week that I don’t go to school.  That’s right, I slept a full 8 hours this afternoon and it was fabulous!  So that is why Thursdays are near and dear to my heart.

Anyway… As promised, here is the postponed edition of What I Want Wednesday.  You may notice a large majority of the items coming from Target…  Hence the title.  I stopped in last week to pick up two shirts and came out with a shopping list including most of the items below and then some.

  Target Sweaters – First up are these two sweaters.  The pictures don’t really do them justice.  The first is a color blocked piece that is just too cute.  It is bright and cheery and a long way from the usual drab, colorless clothes I wear in the fall/winter seasons.  The second is actually a pretty shiny number with bits of gold showing through the grey, it is definitely much more appealing in person.


Target Jackets – Next up are the jackets and blazers.  Oh my lanta!  When I saw the sheer number of jackets along the back wall of Target I almost passed out.  It would seem that I have a weak spot for outerwear.  I love all of the bright colors from the orange blazer to the red leather jacket.  The yellow pea coat is too cute (although I am considering getting a green version instead…  Not sure yet which direction I will take) and the navy anorak is perfect for a casual day of running errands.  The black blazer is not really new to the fashion world, but I still love it and am planning on adding it to my closet this weekend actually.

Scentsy Warmer – Okay, so this isn’t fashion related but I still want it so here you go.  Have you heard of Scentsy?  If not, you should check it out!  I have known about this company for quite a while now.  My mom worked in their warehouse out in Idaho for a few years and is now a consultant and sells the stuff.  I seriously have way more warmers than I could ever use at one time (I think I have 5 or 6?) but I always find another one in the latest catalogs and how cute is the pumpkin one above?  It would be such a cute addition to fall decorations and get just the right fragrance to burn and it could be heavenly fall times in your home!  Plus now they sell Layers which include body wash, body butter, laundry items and more.  I can’t wait to wrap myself in some of the delicious scents!  Interested?  Check it out here.

Louboutin Shoes – I’ve decided it is my duty as an aspiring fashionista to own a pair of designer shoes.  And what better shoe to own than the famous red-soled fabulosity that is Louboutin??


VS Pink NFL T-Shirt & Pants – Do these not look too comfy for words?  I’ve wanted to purchase some of the Pink brand NFL items for a while now and I’m hoping to actually get to do that this season.  These would be the perfect item to lounge about on Sundays while studying and watching my Bengals play (and hopefully win) some football.


White & Blue Button Down Shirts – These are such classics that I almost feel guilty for not already owning them.  I love a great button down shirt.  They are chic and trendy without being dated.  You can dress them up or down depending on how you style it and it is one of the easiest looks out there to pull together.

What do you want today?  Anything special you have your eye on?  Enjoy your Thursday, one day closer to the weekend!



(*I wrote this forever ago and just realized it never posted.  But since we are still in the early days of “back to school” I think it still fits*)

Hi Guys and Gals!!

I know, I know…  I said I was going to pull the plug on this blog.  But I just couldn’t do it!!  I feel like it is my baby and I just couldn’t end it after all.  During my little hiatus I realized that I actually enjoyed and missed blogging about my fashion thoughts.  So I’m back.

And just in time for What I Want Wednesday.  Today is a special “Back-to-School” edition.  Now, I realize that being in college I don’t necessarily need/get back to school clothes.  However, I was homeschooled until my sophomore year of high school and when you go to school in your pajamas it is really hard to convince the parentals to buy you new clothes.  So I am taking full advantage of that now.  Since I head back to school on Monday, here are some of the items I plan on adding to my back to school wardrobe.

The yellow sweater and denim shirt I found at Target and fell in love with them both!  I already have so many outfit ideas for both of them and they are a must add.

Khaki pants.  I don’t exactly love khaki pants but I don’t own a pair and I do think it is a good basic to have around.

The gold watch.  I have posted before about wanting a watch like this.  Originally I wanted a Michael Kors watch and the one posted above is Coach.  I probably cannot afford name brand right now, but I did find one that is an inexpensive version that I will be putting on my wrist very soon.

I also talked about my wanting of the Sperry shoes and cannot wait to purchase a pair of those.  As well as a pair of tennis shoes.  I don’t know that I will get those exact shoes (or even that brand) but I want a pair of tennis shoes that aren’t for working out.  I want a cute, fashionable pair to wear while running around on campus.

There are a few other items I want to get from the campus bookstore and if I get those, I will post pictures.  That’s it for today.  Good luck to everyone going back to school in the upcoming weeks!  What are you wearing for your first day??



Back in the June issue of they had an article called What a Classic!  It lists out the 15 tried-and-true favorites needed to complete your summer wardrobe.  These articles are always hugely inspiring and helpful to me when trying to figure out what I need to have in my closet.  Listed below the 15 items.

1. Striped Sweater – Make sure the sweater you choose is lightweight in case of chilly evenings.

2.  White Shorts – Works best with a long-sleeve t-shirt and flats or a shirt and wedges.

3.  Ballet Flats – Bright colors are perfect for fall.

4.  Chambray Shirt – Wearing it open over a bathing suit and sarong equals instant, effortless cool.

5.  Floral Maxi-Dress – Perfect paired with wedges.

6.  Polo Shirt

7.  Menswear Hat (Have) – Laid back look perfect for summer (Side note:  I have a large sized head and usually have a hard time shopping for hats in the women’s sections but I have found that men’s hats are the perfect size!)

8.  White Jeans (Have) – Instyle says that cropped is the cutest but I think any length white pant looks fresh and perfect for summer.

9.  Peasant Dress – Perfect for travel and a day on the beach.

10.  Polka-Dot Bikini – I mean there was even a song written about this!  (Itsy, Bitsy, Teeny, Tiny, Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini)

11.  Crochet Dress – Great for lounging by the pool, going to the farmer’s market or playing at the park.

12.  Oversize Frames (Have) – I mentioned back here that I wanted thin framed sunnies to lessen my raccoon eyes but I still absolutely love a pair of oversize frames.

13.  White One-Piece – I don’t love one piece bathing suits but something about this does look very fresh and summery.

14.  Striped Tank (Have) – Pair it with a miniskirt or jean shorts for a light, fresh look.

15.  Embroidered Tunic
