Today is Tuesday which means it’s time for another Trendy Tuesday feature!  Today’s trend is one that I’m not sure I can follow but would love to try.  Graphic prints on pants.  I’m seeing these everywhere but I don’t know that’s it is one I can manage.  My hips and thighs aren’t exactly my favorite body parts and pants with highly visible graphics that draw the eye to those exact parts isn’t typically what I go for.  But, let’s focus on these nonetheless.  A lot of the common designs that I have seen are floral patterns.  But there are also polka dots, animal print and other swirly designs.

Now if I were to try this trend, I found a pair at Target that I think I would be able to handle.

Snake Print Denim from Target.com

Yes, it is basically a black pair of denim with a slight gray snake print design.  Baby steps, people.  Baby steps.

Do you like printed denim?  Was it something you jumped into all the way or did you just dip a toe in the shallow end?

Happy Trending!

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??

Oh my goodness is it really Wednesday already?  So what do I want today?  Well there are a few things but today I am only writing about one.  It was actually featured in another post and the more I have looked at it, the more I want it.  I am in love with the neon top by SuperTrash.  When I looked it up online and saw the price I had a minor panic attack but decided that I am going to save up and treat myself.  Most of my wardrobe comes from a thrift store or Target (not saying I don’t love Target, because I do I think it is just time to broaden my horizons).  So for this week, I just want the neon top below.

What has been your biggest fashion indulgence?  Is spending this kind of money on a blouse absolutely ridiculous?

I have decided to start a new segment on the blog, What I Want Wednesday.  Basically I will just keep a running list of things I hope to add to my wardrobe or beauty stash.  Some weeks I may have a lot of items, some weeks I may just have one item.  I find these things either walking through stores, looking through magazines or while watching TV.  So for the first installment, here is what I am wanting today, along with links in case you were interested in adding any of these items to your own collection.  Apparently I am in a Target frame of mind because all of my wanted items are from that store.

The first is a strapless maxi dress.  The picture doesn’t quite do it justice.  I have gone to see it in the stores twice and I am in love with it to be honest.  It looks like the perfect summertime dress.  You can wear it out on the beach, for a day of shopping or dress it up a little bit for date night.  http://www.target.com/p/The-Webster-at-Target-Strapless-Maxi-Dress-Wallpaper-Print-Cream/-/A-13976164#?lnk=sc_qi_detaillink

Next up we have a neon hoodie.  Again, the pictures do not do it justice.  The color on this is a great yellow-green color that would look great against a tan for summer.  It is light enough to wear when the night temperatures drop down a little bit or for the occasional cooler day.  And it also comes in other colors if this bright neon isn’t exactly your taste.  http://www.target.com/p/Mossimo-Supply-Co-Juniors-Drop-Sleeve-Hoodie-Assorted-Colors/-/A-13984867#?lnk=sc_qi_detaillink

Digital watch.  This is not actually the version I have seen in stores, but I can’t seem to find that one online anywhere.  Basically I am looking for a cute, digital watch that I can wear while at the gym.  It would be so helpful to know what time it is, how long I have been working out and have the ability to have a stopwatch at easy access.  http://www.target.com/p/Mossimo-Bumpy-Rubber-Strap-Watch-With-Silver-Dial-Orange/-/A-13423375

Finally the nude heels.  I have been wanting a pair of nude colored heels for so long.  They are able to go with just about any outfit and they have the ability to make your legs look like the go on forever, always a plus in my book.  The other day while shopping, I found these and they match my skin perfectly and now I need want them!  Plus I just noticed that when you purchase online, you can buy one and get one 50% off.  I may have to just do that when I go to get these shoes.  http://www.target.com/p/Women-s-Mossimo-Pearce-Pumps-Camel-Patent/-/A-13004613

There is my list for today.  What kind of things are you wanting?  Feel free to add your own wishlist in the comments section below!
