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!



Today has been KUH-RAZY!!!  Maybe I will tell you the story of “the day that should be forever erased from memory” but for now I’m just writing this quick update to let you know that this week’s edition of What I Want Wednesday has been postponed until tomorrow when there is a little more sanity around these parts.  So today, I will leave you with an inspirational quote and a hope that your day has been fantabulous and stress free!!!



(*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??



…  To be on time for once!!  Geeze, I missed What I Want Wednesday again.  But in my defense, my baby brother was performing in his very first stand up comedy show yesterday so I was busy all day getting things done so I could go and watch him.

So I’m a little late.  It doesn’t change the fact that I do still want every single one of these items.  I found them all while shopping this past weekend.  I almost purchased everything I am about to post here, but decided to hold back and wait a few days before buying everything.

Without further ado…

I want this skirt.  I will have to try it on because I have never worn a mini skirt before and the thought is really intimidating.  Who knows, maybe I will put this skirt on and absolutely hate it, but when I see it laying on the display in store, I LOVE it!

I also want this top.  I was very, very close to buying this over the weekend.  It was on the clearance $5 rack but I had a sneaky feeling it wasn’t supposed to be.  So before standing in line forever and then finding out it wasn’t on sale, I asked an employee if they could check.  It wasn’t, I put it back to buy at a later date and have not stopped thinking of it since.

This was the original blazer that I saw in the store.  I thought it was super cute and that it would look great over a light, summery dress for brunch or another fun moment like that.  After looking at it more on the website though I’m not sure.  This would be another one I have to try on; I don’t usually like cropped tops on myself.  I do definitely want a blazer though…  Maybe I could do this one instead.

The final item I am wanting today is a pair of fabulous red sunglasses from Fossil.  I can’t find any pictures of them online, so I guess that is even more reason to just buy them, so I can show you all how cute they are.  (Sunglasses are almost as bad an obsession as watches for me…  Speaking of watches, I found a watch I want too!)

Because the Charlotte Russe website isn’t allowing me to post the pictures of the items like I wanted, I posted links instead…  But because Polyvore is awesome, I’m able to create a look involving all of the above mentioned pieces.

A couple housekeeping tidbits before I go.  I am planning on doing an update to the blog this weekend, so keep an eye out for that as well as my thoughts on the latest episode of Project Runway.
Also, we are only 5 followers away from a giveaway!  So keep an eye out for that as well, hopefully there will be news on that very soon.

Looky, looky!  It’s Wednesday and I am here posting my latest “What I Want Wednesday.” Usually I remember it’s Wednesday on Thursday or Friday…  I’m a bad blogger.  Nevertheless, I am here now and ready to go.  The items I am wanting this week?  Accessories.  First up, watches.

I LOVE watches.  I already own five and am constantly on the lookout to add more to my collection.  I have no idea why I like watches so much, it’s just a fact.  Here are the ones I am hoping to add to my collection very soon.




The other item I am craving today is a Michael Kors purse.  I’m not sure as to the exact style that I want, I just know that I love his purses.  They are not only beautiful but they are simple and not covered in logos telling people what brand purse I am carrying.  They are almost all a gorgeous neutral that would go with anything and I want one badly.


There are my items I would love to add to my collection.  What do you want?



I have been woefully absent from posting on here lately; I am just awful.  I feel like I have so much going on and so much to update but I will do it a little bit at a time, so that I can make up for the lack of posts with an abundance of posts to come.  I have some items ready for my “What I Want Wednesday,” I went shopping today and got some too cute items that I want to share, and I am sitting down right now to watch the season 10 premier of Project Runway and I am very excited to share my feelings towards that as well.

I will say that I am very excited for Project Runway!  I was just recently given a sewing machine and am hoping to maybe get some inspiration from watching the show and be able to make some pieces myself as well…  First I should probably learn how to even use the dang machine though!

So sorry for the absence but I promise I am back and ready to go!



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?



There aren’t a ton of items I want…  Today it is just an accessory and a beauty item…  I’m easy to please this weekend.

What is it you want?



Louis Vuitton purse…  Of all the designer bags this is one of my favorites.  Something about it just seems classier to me than some of the other purses out there…  Yes, everyone knows the brand when they see it and I usually don’t like to “brand” myself but I think I could make an exception this once.

Sebastian Penetraitt Shampoo and Conditioner…  My salon uses a few Sebastian products and I absolutely love the way they smell and the amazing things they do to my hair.  So when I heard about this shampoo & conditioner combo while watching one of my favorite youtube video channels, kandeejohnson, that she uses this and absolutely loves it I decided it is time for me to try it!

The part of the video I am talking about starts at around 8:26.

It’s the time again…  Time to decide what it is that I am wanting to add to my wardrobe for What I Want Wednesday.  I don’t have a very extensive list today.  Only a couple items that I want to add for summer.

First up is a new pair of sunglasses.  I love sunglasses.  I also already have 4 or 5 pairs.  However, they are all the really large type.  I want a pair of thin rimmed glasses so that when I am sitting at the pool I don’t get a horrible case of raccoon eyes

Not a great look

Second I am looking for a pair of sandals.  I have plenty of flip flops and even some dressy high heel sandals.  But I don’t have any dressed up flat sandals, so that is next on my list.

And those are really the only items I am looking for this week.  Pretty easy list.  Anyone have any items they want this week?  Feel free to comment below with what you want!!



Time for another segment of WIWW.  I have been away from home and therefore all my style and fashion magazines and websites so I don’t have as many to list out as last time, just a couple items that I am hoping to add to my summer wardrobe.

I am in love with the shirt from Old Navy.  Something about those shirts is so summery and makes me want to be out wearing shorts and flip flops and bbqing.  Plus the shirt is on sale right now!  Bonus!!

I am in desperate need of jeans.  I only have a couple pairs that fit the way I like right now and the other pairs I have are all falling apart.  Great to turn into shorts, but I need some jeans as well.  Express makes my absolute favorite jeans however at $88 a pair, it is a special occasion that I purchase those.

Sperry Topsiders…  I know these were popular last summer and this summer I haven’t really seen anyone wearing them yet this year.  But I am the type of person that waits until things are a little less insanely popular.  These go along with my Old Navy shirt.  Perfect for summer bbqs or boating.***7********9101940*M060&productId=7-134400&&subCatId=cat2050401&productId=7-134400&stockNumber=9101940&subCatTabId=cat100138DM&catId=cat90048DM&productdisplayName=Women’s+Angelfish+Slip-On+Boat+Shoe&subcatdisplayName=Top+Rated&skuId=***7********9101940*M060&pageIdentifier=productdetail&catdisplayName=Women&showDefaultOption=true

Finally the Tria Beauty laser hair removal system.  This isn’t exactly a piece of fashion but will definitely be helpful.  Having spent the entire weekend in a swimsuit I can say that it would be so nice to not have to worry about shaving or waxing before going out.  To be able to throw on a bathing suit and pair of shorts without worrying about being hair free would make summers that much more enjoyable.

What are you wanting to add to your summer wardrobe?
