Cabin Fever Cart Confession 

A lot of you may or may not know that I spent the last few days in the hospital. I was really not well but I have since been released and I’ve been trying to take it as easy as I can. I am always working and it brings me pleasure to remain productive. Since getting sick I have tried to slow down a bit and stay home to relax. I am not content resting at home and I have been using some online retail therapy to make my rest more bearable. 

AEO Denim x High-Rise Jegging – $59.99


     I had forgotten that American Eagle has thee best distressed jeans. I came across an amazing distressed pair while browsing instagram and was informed that,that particular pair had been purchased at AE.com. I love AE and have a bunch of shorts and vests from them. This was thee most distressed pair I could find. The slim fit makes it easy to dress the jeans up or down. I am sure that these are going to be my favorite pair of the year. 

Tom Girl Jean – $49.95


   AE has a promotion at the moment for buy one get one half off so I also grabbed a pair of their destroyed Tomgirl jeans. These have a more relaxed fit and are something I would more than likely wear everyday. They are super soft and comfortable. 

Skinny High Jeans – $19.99


All of my jeans can’t be distressed so I got this simple skinny high-waisted pair from H&M. I have another pair in a faded dark grey/black and I literally wear them every chance I get. If they are a permanent style I definitely see myself purchasing all of the shades. They are super comfortable and I love a good high waist jean. 

Denim Skirt – $34.99


When it comes to distressed denim the key is sturdy fabric. If the denim is too soft the rips will continue to fray and the item won’t last very long. I love this distressed denim skirt from H&M because the fabric is very stiff but still has a bit of stretch. I would suggest going a size up bc the heavier denim is prone to shrinkage. I will pair this with a button blouse or graphic t-shirt for effortless styling. 

Oversized Denim Jacket Dress – $50.00

 I picked up this oversized denim jacket from Fancy Kouture Accessories and I feel like this will be one of my go-to items this summer. The shorter sleeves make the jacket perfect for layering in the spring as well. If you are slim enough to get away with wearing it as a dress feel free to wear it alone with a pair of simple heels or sneakers. 

Faryl by Farylrobin Dune Neon Mix Block Heel Quarter Strap Sandals – $44.99
           I love my shoe collection but the key to a good collection of footwear is to constantly edit things that you do not wear with some fresh new styles appropriate for the season. If you’re wardrobe is very basi you can add a touch of style with pops of color and print on your feet. I got this thread work printed sandal from Target. The low heel is perfect for running summer errands or strolls while on vacation. 

Who What Wear™ Michaela Block Heel Quarter Strap Sandal – $32.99


Block heels are becoming more and more present and I am always here for stylish comfort. I picked up this coral strappy sandal from Targets “Who What Wear” collection. Shades of orange look amazing especially when you’re gaining a summer glow in the heat. Wear them with everything because orange is the new black. 

Block Heel Sandals w/ Criss Cross Straps – $24.99 
 I am in love with the mule trend and really wanted the metallic rose gold pair inspired by Gucci last year. I couldn’t get lucky with the metals so I picked up this lower red version from Rainbow. I love red shoes they look best when paired with fashion neutrals like denim black and khaki. The style makes it easy to just slide them on and step out the door.

Knit Sneaker – $12.99

 I also got these soft sneakers from Rainbow. I love running shoes for working out att the gym. They are perfect for cardio and are best for the treadmil. I also wear them to work because they are just really comfortable. 

I hope that you were able to gain inspiration from my haul. I apologize in advance of any of the pieces are currently sold out. I would love to know if you purchase something in the comments below. Until next time Happy Shopping.

Shopaholic Cart Confessions: Target Style

The summer is almost over. Most of my shopaholics are preparing for fall fashion and back to school. I found some great buys at Target, sure to keep you on trend for the autumn season. Target has a great selection of shoes right now and I had to pick up my personal favorites and add them to my cart. 

 
Women’s Doris Footbed Sandal – $12.48 to $24.99

The first pair I picked up were on sale! These metallic flats are super chic and less than ten bucks. They are perfect for those weekend getaways once it starts to get cool and you decide to retreat to a warmer climate. I always wear sandals on the plane. Pair them with sweats and a warm duster coat and you are ready for the mile high fashion club. 

  
The next pair of flats are definitely needed if you work in an office setting or you just really love a good loafer. Every shopaholic should have a pair of black flats. The pointed silhouette is definitely where shoe fashion is headed this year and Target hit the nail on the head.

 
Women’s Holly Loafers – $24.99 

You should never compromise your style for the office. I love to wear jumpsuits and sheath dresses all year round. They are no fuss pieces that do not require much styling. A navy jumpsuit paired with a simple timepiece and office bag would definitely compliment these shoes. If your environment is a bit more conservative you can throw on a blazer or cardigan once you get to your desk. 

  
This would not be a proper shoe haul with out a good heel. Fall definitely calls for great warm neutrals that compliment your skintone. I went for a nude d’orsay pump. I love the understated sex appeal of side-foot-cleavage. If you guessed that Target style did it again you are correct! 

 

Women’s Lainee D’Orsay Pumps – $29.99

The possibilities on styling this shoe are absolutely endless; however, I picked it up specifically for a casual date. These pumps are great paired with a neutral blouse and your favorite jeans. You can add your printed or textured clutch and your date will have no complaints. This outfit can be worn to dinner or brunch and the casual fit is balanced with a simple heel.  
  
A fall shoe closet is not complete without a classic bootie. I never gravitate towards pointed shoes but this what’s my third pointy shoe find. I love the grips on the bottom because it gives them a casual, everyday feel. I don’t like too much detail on my boots. Simple cuts and styles make them a bit more flexible to wear and also allow them to carry over into different seasons and years to come. 

 
Women’s Jan Zipper Block Heeled Booties – $37.99

I love to shop in boots during the fall. I would definitely pair these with black leather trousers and a simple v neck t shirt. Just add a trench coat and fedora to compete the look. This is perfect for a girls day out, a shopping trip and even another date night option.  
  
Please be sure to let me know which outfit you are excited to try and which of the Target shoes you plan to purchase! Happy Shopping… From Target Style! Yours Truly Shopaholic Cart Confession.
