Tuca & Bertie on Netflix
I love this new animated show on Netflix! I binge-watched the first season last week and I'm so sad that it's over. It took an episode to get into it, but stick with it! The show is super creative, funny and relatable.
Barre 3 Online
I took a hiatus from working out (like a two year hiatus if I'm being honest haha) but I decided recently to subscribe to Barre 3 online. I used to go to the Barre 3 NYC studio and I loved it. The online program lets me do it at home! It's a super uplifting, body positive workout that encourages doing what feels best to you that day. It makes me feel stretched, strong and happy!
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color
These little guys are the MVPS of my makeup bag. They save so much time in the morning! Just swipe some color on your lids and blend with your finger. It looks natural and pretty, and they come in a ton of gorgeous shades. I use the darker ones as a smudgy eyeliner and the lighter ones for highlight and lid color.
Do Anything Sauces
They started stocking these sauces at our local grocery store and I love them!! I've been using them in place of regular pasta sauces and they taste good, plus they contain servings of vegetables! My favorite is the Savory Tomato Veggie. It's great on tortellini with some onions, peppers and turkey meatballs.
This was an extremely successful Target try-on because I loved almost everything I picked out! Don't you love when that happens?! Check out what I found below:
Wild Fable Mesh Open Cardigan, $22
A New Day Striped Long Sleeve, $10
Universal Thread High-Rise Shorts, $17
The material of this cardigan is so soft and cozy, and I love the open knit look for spring. It's the perfect layer to throw on over a dress or tank when it gets chilly. I feel like it looks more expensive than it is. I'm wearing a size small and it fits great.
This tee is extremely soft and has a ton of stretch. I picked it up because I love the rust color for spring or fall, and it's a perfect layering piece. Great quality for the price! For size reference, I'm wearing a size small.
These shorts are also really soft! I like the frayed bottom detail because I feel like they are more flattering on the legs than cuffed shorts bottoms. I'm not a huge shorts person, mainly because I am self conscious about the way my legs and butt look in them (ugh.. I know), but these were pretty comfortable and cute. For sizing, I'm wearing a 4.
Wild Fable Tye Dye Print Dress, $18
I mean, this dress is just so good! It feels like a super soft t-shirt and the subtle tie dye look is so fun! I love that it's loose fitting - perfect for hot days. It's just so easy and cute. I ended up buying this and wore it on a recent weekend paired with high-top Converse sneakers. I was comfortable all day long! It also looks adorable under a denim jacket if it's chilly. For size reference, I'm wearing a small.
A New Day Floral Maxi Dress, $25 SALE
I thought the pattern and color of this dress was really pretty, which is why I tried it on. It's very comfortable and the fabric is good quality (not clingy and not sheer). It feels really breezy and light. I think this dress would look awesome on all different body types and could be dressed up or down. It would be great for a summer vacation (paired with leather sandals and a woven tote) or even a casual beach wedding or outdoor party (dressed up with wedges or espadrilles and a woven clutch). I'm wearing a size small.
Universal Thread Overall Romper, $24.99
How cute!! I am a sucker for overalls so I immediately gravitated towards this romper. It's just the perfect thing to throw on for a hot summer weekend or picnic (or even as a cover-up the beach) and it looks adorable. I would wear it with Birkenstock sandals or sporty sneakers and layer it under a cardigan or sweater when it gets chilly. Obsessed!
I've been having so much more fun getting dressed each morning now that the weather is finally getting nicer! Check out some of my favorite new arrivals for spring below (click the photos to shop). XOXO
I am having so much fun doing these Target try-ons!! I am going to try making these a monthly occurrence. Check out what I found in store this April below. Happy shopping! XOXO
Who What Wear Shirt, $24.99
I gravitated towards this shirt because I thought it had a fun, vintage-looking vibe that would be cute for spring/summer. I sized up to a medium for a more roomy fit and it looked great front tucked with jeans. I love the quality of the fabric and the length of the sleeves. This top could definitely be dressed up for work (with a pair of trousers and mules) or down for weekend (with distressed denim and slide sandals). It looks like something cool you'd find in a vintage clothing shop, so you'll look hip and unique but you'll secretly know it's from Target. ;)
Who What Wear Shirtdress, $34.99
This dress is a little more preppy than my usual style, but the fit is so flattering! The tied waist really gives an hourglass shape, and the length is perfect for work or a daytime party (on a thin or curvy figure). I think it would look great with a pop of color in a clutch/purse and sunglasses. Then pair it with white sneakers (to keep it effortlessly cool) or dress it up with some simple heels. Again, the quality is great for the price! I could picture this being worn at daytime brunch or an outdoor party. For size reference, I'm wearing a small.
Universal Thread Dress, $24.99
This dress is a casual, timeless classic that I could see paired under a denim jacket with some classic white sneakers on a summer day. The quality is not as amazing as the Who What Wear items I tried on, but the fabric does have a nice linen-feel to it. The belted waist is flattering, too, and the wooden buttons add a nice touch. I am wearing an XS but I think I would have liked the fit of a small better. This is the perfect dress that's easy to throw on for the weekend but still looks put together.
Universal Thread Jumpsuit, $29.99
This jumpsuit was probably my favorite item I tried on. It is so flattering and insanely comfortable!! You'll feel like you're getting away with wearing pajamas out of the house! I love the tied detail at the waist, and the length on the pants is perfect. This could easily be dressed up for work with mules or block heels (and layered under a cardigan on chillier days), and dressed down for weekends with some cool sneakers or Birkenstocks (throw on a denim jacket when it gets cold). I'm wearing a size small and I love the fit. I actually ended up buying this piece because I loved it so much. I wore it for an event at work and felt comfortable but cute.
Over the weekend I switched my garment rack over from winter to spring, so there's no turning back now! Check out what i've worn lately below, and shop using the links at the end of the post. XOXO
