leave me out

I'm typically 100% immune to Target. Especially clothing at Target. I always look, but none of it ever seems worth the high-to-me price tags. Except this dress. I love a good floral summery print. I didn't want to spend $25 on a Target dress, but I did and I'm glad. Sure, $25 is not a lot, but for Target's general quality, it is. It, however, seems way nicer than their previous brands. Oh, and I think I am now obligated to tell you that it has pockets. I really love the look of a long cardigan with a dress. This is a more casual everyday look that I rock often.

The weather was nice for a few days and I took full advantage of bare legs. Now it's back to chilly weather and tons of rain. So, back to layers I go...

I've wanted to try out a pinafore forever, but I never found one that felt right. But this one? It's pretty darn perfect. The second I bought it and the shirt, I knew I had my new favorite outfit. I want both the shirt + pinafore in a million different styles. My sister found these balloons in a ditch and I'm thankful she dragged them down the street for a photo prop.

I wore this to breakfast, to eat macaroons and have high tea, and to see Captain Marvel. Which was a pretty perfect way to spend a Saturday.

When I found this dress, I couldn't believe that it looked good on me. Collars can be tricky with my haircut, but this one works perfectly. It was under $3 and I've been wearing it non-stop. I haven't had much luck thrifting lately -- seriously, what has happened to the Akron thrift stores? They are HORRIBLE now, but that doesn't stop me and my friends from monthly trips. We all found things this round, so success?

Last month, I decided to replace all the time I spend mindlessly scrolling online and watching tv with books. I managed to read fifteen books! I used to really love reading, but the internet steals all my time. So, it was really wonderful to get back to something I enjoy. I'll eventually do a write-up of everything I read. I discovered a lot of great books and authors I've missed the past few years. It's been a perfect winter hobby. I have way too many books, so I'm thankful my local library has everything and a great app where I can request whatever I want.

Having a platinum blonde pixie cut is a lot of work, but especially in the winter. The cold and harsh winds wreck havoc on my hair. I'm thankful to have discovered Silk18 shampoo. It's so nourishing and gives life to my lackluster winter hair.

Oh, man! It's been so long since I've posted one of these updates. I consume so much that this is only a small portion. So, hopefully I'll be better at updating them. Let me know if you've been watching, reading or listening to anything I should check out. I'm always down.
