Target is My Drug of Choice

Hello loveleigh's!

I went by Target on my way home from work on Monday. I had not been for about a week and was going into withdrawals! (Yes, Target is my drug of choice....and cinnamon-dolce frappuccinos.) I spent a little over $20 and came away with 2 dresses, a skirt and a pair of shoes!



Yes, I bought this in the girl's department. This will be a great little sundress for next year or to throw on with leggings, boots and a denim jacket in fall!



Cherokee Girl's White Ruffle Dress
(Not available online) - $4.48
Yes, I also bought this in the girl's department as well. It is actually, what I like to call, a "mullet" dress (shorter in the front, longer in the back!) ;) I pinned an outfit on Pinterest awhile ago that this will work perfectly for (think fall and layers!) :) When it gets cooler out, I will post it on here!

While I tend to think of floral in the Spring and Summer, these colors can definitely work for fall!
OH, and it has pockets! I LOVE pockets on dresses and skirts!
Random Fun fact: My junior prom dress had hidden pockets!
I plan to wear this with a simple tee, denim jacket and flat boots.

Green Shoes, why not?

Have a loveleigh day everyone!

Hair Talk

Hello loveleigh's! Sorry it's been a bit since I've posted. I recently went thru old photos (and posted them on Facebook!). I have so many great memories....and hair styles/cuts/colors!!

My hair has been everything from super blonde to dark brown (and several shades in between), super short (chin length bob!) to super long (waist length when I was young!), bangs (several variations), no bangs, layers, no layers, straight, curly, get the case you don't though here are a few pics of me as a brunette and a blonde!

I stopped coloring my hair a little less than 5 years ago - I've decided I like my natural strawberry blonde/red hair (and it's soo much easier/healther/cheaper!!) :) I also like it long, and have no plans to cut it any time soon. Since I don't color my hair and don't really cut my hair (except trims....I have even grown most of my layers out!) I usually change up my bangs. Around this time every year I want to change up my style a bit and usually want bangs in some form or fashion. (Then I usually keep them for fall and winter then let them grow in spring and summer.)  Right now they are just blah, so I'm definitely needing a change!! Here is a recent pic of my BFF and me at her baby shower.

I thought about continuing to grow my bangs and do a long, dramatic side swept like Candace Cameron Bure.

However, I think they would constantly get in my eyes and drive me crazy!

Whenever I see people with cute straight across/blunt bangs (every time I watch Devil Wears Prada, whenever I look at People Mag and see a celeb rocking them, whenever New Girl was on, etc.) I always say to my hubby that it makes me want them again! Here are a few I love!

The pretty Cameron Richardson

The Future Mrs. Timberlake

Ms. Richie

Taylor Swift

The Former Mrs. Tom Cruise

The cute and quirky Zooey Deschanel-one of my favorite hair inspirations

So, after looking at all of these pics I have decided to get blunt bangs again! My appointment is set for September 7 - Can't wait!

As I've said before, styles always seem to come back around. Here's my parents in 1970 - My cute mom has blunt bangs...and don't you just LOVE the bow!!! (and no, that is not me...I didn't come until 13 years later!!)

Have a loveleigh day everyone!

Crazy for Chevron

Hello loveleigh's!

So I know I'm not alone with a love for the pattern that is Chevron! I've recently added a few accessories with this fun zigzaggy pattern to my accessories wardrobe.

Mint, Turquoise, Blue Chevron Stackable Rings 
Target - $7.99 (not available on line)


(*If you sign up for a FREE account you automatically earn 100 vault points which is good for $10 off your next order. I used my $10 on this so only paid $10 for these! AND they have FREE shipping!)

Don't you LOVE all of those?

Want more than just accessories? Scroll below!

(Robe?! I would totally wear this as a tunic with a long tank underneath!)

(It'd be so easy to design an entire room off of this lamp!!)

(Not available for purchase on line)
(Want a change but don't have a lot of $$ - pillow shams are an easy, inexpensive way to update your room!)

(I LOVE this but I think it's plastic. I only like rubber iPhone cases; otherwise I always feel like I'm going to drop my phone!)

And Lastly, Charlie Brown had it right all along!

 Have a loveleigh day everyone!!

Oh, Target!

Hello loveleigh's! Sorry it's been a while since I've posted.

I went to Target on Saturday and got some amazing deals!

These 2 dresses are not normally carried in the store. These were returns from It said they were normally $15 but on the website it says they are $24.99. Either way, I got them for $3.76 (+ tax) each!!!!!

Limited Edition Sandals=$5.08 (+ tax).

Normally, I always try on before I buy. I didn't have time on Saturday and unfortunately the coral dress and the tank were a little too big :( (The Cafe Latte colored dress is an x-small and fit perfectly. The Coral one is a small.) I so wish it fit because it's really cute and such a good deal, but it doesn' if anyone (local) wants to buy the coral dress and/or the tank from me, let me know! I'll pass on the savings to you and sell it for what I paid for it!

At least one of the dresses worked though! I plan on pairing it with some fun, bright jewelry!

Have a loveleigh day everyone!!
