Fitting Room Fun

I found some time last week to hit Target sans kids so I thought it would be best to take advantage of the opportunity to actually get to try on some clothes in the dressing rooms.

I found some cute things…

Thought I’d go ahead and get that one out of the way…I was actually going back and forth on sharing this one here…but hey, if this blog is going to be honest and raw…then I have to let go of some insecurities, right?

I tried on this bikini and I actually really liked it. The bottom seemed kind of baggy, but I felt if I went down a size, it wouldn’t give the coverage I like on the backside {thank you, Tanner & Breckin}. I’m still in the midst of getting in bikini shape for summer. I didn’t get this, but maybe if it’s still in stock a month from now, I’ll try it on again.

I loved the color of these shorts {could not find link online, but check your local store}. And the length was just right – flattering because it didn’t show too much upper thigh. I’ll feel like I can bend over safely when chasing my little one at the play parks and such.

I also went ahead and bought them in jean blue…

That top is also great…I mentioned it in this post last week. It goes great with leggings, I had been looking for a light, layering sweater to pair with leggings and skinnies.

Lastly, I loved this bright blue maxi skirt. It is longer in the back than the front.

I am so in the mood for spring weather so I can start rocking these things!

Monday Musings: Early Spring?

Happy Monday, y’all! Hope you had a great weekend with the Super Bowl and all. I didn’t particularly care either way who won the game this year…but I was definitely lovin’ the commercials – how about you? Oh, and I was so stoked to see Destiny’s Child make a surprise appearance during Beyonce’s halftime show – took me back down memory lane – singin’ in the car to “Say My Name” with my best girlfriends in high school…I loved that group. Though Beyonce has still done very well for herself since going solo.

In other news, I’m sure you all know that Punxsutawney Phil has predicted an early spring this year.

CAN I GET A WOOOOOP???!!! 

I don’t even remember the last time he didn’t see his shadow…I always automatically expect the extra six weeks of winter, or whatever the old wives’ tales says. But to be honest, with the beautifully warm winter weather we’ve been having here in Charleston, SC, I can’t say I’m too surprised. And all of this warm weather is getting me even more eager for spring and summer weather…and to pull out the warm-weather wardrobe. I also can’t help but look around online for new things to lounge around the pool and beach in. I actually stumbled upon the cutest cover up {totally my style}:

 Gah! It’s just too perfectly pretty and totally something I would wear. Something I’m GOING to wear…as I just finalized the purchase online a couple clicks of the mouse ago! Plus, doesn’t it look very similar to this one that I swooned over last summer?
I’m also due for a new bikini or two…I didn’t buy a new one last year. Hubby will balk at this because I have a whole dresser drawer full of them, but many are several years old, or just fit weird now {baby #2 definitely shifted some things around} so I think I’m going to finally clean out that drawer and hopefully add in something like this Roxy Free Rampage bikini:

It would go just “swimmingly” with the maxi dress, don’t you think?
Enjoy your week! xoxo
