The Look // Coral and Blue

While I am still trying to refrain from shopping until I clean out my closet and dresser before the move (update on the 45 days of organizing coming soon!) I still can’t help but window shop online! Today all things Coral and Blue were catching my eye.


Coral Color Block Harper Tote

I recently bought my youngest nephew a beach towel from PB Kids and was added to their email list at checkout. Typically I just delete before browsing so that I am not tempted to buy anything, but today’s 40% sale on beach bags sparked my interest, I’m a sucker for a good tote.  I fell in love with the Color Block Harper Tote in Coral above (which also comes in this design in navy and aqua!) and though it claims to be baby bag I thought it would be perfect for the beach! It’s on sale for $39 (down from $49.50), can be monogrammed, and ships for free!

Target C9 by Champion womens run shorts


I am the first to say it that my body type and running shorts don’t mix, I carry most of my weight below my belly button making it nearly impossible to find a pair of regular shorts that fit properly (I’ve been wearing GAP’s boyfriend shorts since last summer, but purchase them in a size larger so they don’t camel toe me – you needed that visual on a Friday morning didn’t you?) let alone running shorts. But with fitness and weight loss being a priority these days I want to make it a goal to wear and LIKE running shorts next spring/summer and when I saw these on Carrots N Cake this week I decided to make them my inspiration piece. They are part of Target’s C9 Champion Collection. The above retails for $16.99 but the coral pair is on clearance for only $11.99!


Factory Printed Racerback Maxidress


Continuing on the coral and blue theme is this JCREW Factory racerback maxi dress that is on sale now for $46.50 (down from $118!)


Factory Woven Trim Caftan

And this caftan also from JCREW Factory, which bloggers Caycee and Natalie both picked up this week and Cassie featured in white/yellow! Seem everyone in the blogging world loves this style and it’s on sale for $44.50!

Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace

To round out this coral and blue fixation I am having I wanted to share this Kendra Scott necklace that I’ve been seeing all over the blogosphere this year, the Rayne necklace is available in 25 different colors but my personal favorites are the above cobalt,  the yellow, or the navy cats eye. Retails for $80, but Caycee shared on her blog today the coupon code RAYNE20 to save 20%!


What’s your favorite color combo these days?

Shopping is my Cardio

Shopping is my cardio


I am having that urge, you know the urge to go spend your entire paycheck on new clothes and accessories. Well it’s a good thing for my bulging closet, my goal to purge, and well the non-existent money in my wallet that I had to pay rent, my airfare for  Nashville and two bills with this week’s paycheck that I won’t be helping the economy this weekend. But if I was here’s what I’d be buying..

Some summer (shorts, dresses) and some fall (jacket, popover). I used to be the girl who would find one thing she loved and buy it in every single color it came in but as I’ve gotten older (and the longer I’ve lived with Jenn) the better I have gotten about choosing some more versatile pieces. I’m trying to hold off on shopping until I drop a size, save a little for a splurge day, and purge enough to make it fit!

What are you shopping for this weekend?
