Simply Lively - Etsy

Have you ever heard of Etsy? Now, I know most of you have but I have some readers that I have talked to that have not. Just wait until you see what you have been missing.

Well, it is an amazing site where people who have a craft can sell their product. You can find everything from food, clothing, jewelry, party goods, you name it. It is simply AWESOME! And if you haven't heard of it or haven't been to the site you MUST, you can find anything. And with Christmas on it's way it will be a great place to do some shopping.

I promise you will love it and become addicted.

Here is a store that I found on Etsy, Simply Lively, that sells adorable handmade bib necklaces.

These are two of my favorites.

How cute is that with a white t-shirts? It dresses it up just enough.

Can you say Christmas list?

Hi. It's Wednesday and that means it's time for my What I Wore Wednesday post.

Style With In Reach

I discovered this blog today and I love Caitlin's style. I really love this outfit. I like to pair classic tops with boyfriend jeans and this is right up my alley. The thing I love most about her style is that she also shops at affordable places, the top in this picture is from Old Navy and the blazer is from Urban Outfitters. Really cute.

I also really love the look of these mixed bracelets. I have a few vintage bangles like she has on so I just need a few bead bracelets and a vintage chain bracelet to complete the look. I'll be looking for some on my flea market visit tomorrow.

Have a great style day.

Fall has arrived

Look what I found at my grocery store!!!

You know Fall has arrived in Florida when you go to the grocery store and there are PUMPKINS.

I went to the store early Sunday morning and was so excited to see all of the Fall goodness.

We don't have changing leaves or cooler weather and the pumpkin patches are set up on the side of the road or on church lawns.

One visible indication that Fall has arrived is what we can find at the store.

Gourds, pumpkins, indian corn, wheatgrass, squash, cinnamon brooms, mums.

I love it all.

Have I mentioned that fall is my favorite time of year?

I couldn't leave the store without buying some of these little white pumpkins. I love to decorate inside with white pumpkins and they are hard to come by down here.

Happy Fall Y'all!!

What i Wore Wednesday

I am linking up with Lindsay at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday. I do these posts so that I will stay accountable for how I look each day. I am a stay at home mom and I have a small at home business, so it's hard sometimes to get up and get dressed, linking up for What I Wore Wednesday makes me think about what I am going to wear each day. I would love to go around in cargo pants, but once I see them in pictures, off they go. These posts have made a difference when thinking about what I am going to wear.

tank - Target
Cardigan - Old Navy
Jeans - TJ Maxx (Hilfiger)
Shoes - Target
Wristlet purse - The Pleated Poppy

I love this purse.

Off to bake some cookies.

Have a great day and get inspired with your outfits. Check out Lindsay's blog here for some great inspiration.

Have a great day.

What I Wore Wednesday

Hi. It's Wednesday and that time again for What I Wore Wednesday with Lindsay at The Pleated Poppy. If you are new to my blog, each Wednesday I post a picture, or two, of the outfits that I have worn through out the week. It helps to keep me accountable with how I dress so that I am not spending my days in sweat pants or shorts and tanks.

Sometimes it's a bit of a challenge, those sweat pants are so darn comfortable, but as I am usually running around I like to put a little bit of effort into what I am wearing.

Here are a few looks for this week.

Birthday dinner
Dress and Purse - local boutique at a 50% off sale
Shoes - Old Navy

Top - Anthropologie
Pants - TJ Maxx (old)
Sandals - Old Navy

Volunteering at school
Top - JCrew (ages old)
Jeans - TJ Maxx
Shoes - Gap (last year)

I am still waiting for cooler weather. Can't wait to add some layers and bring out some new things to wear.

Have a great day.

Missoni for Target Launched Today

Did you make it to Target today for the new Missoni line? Well, if you haven't, don't bother to go. Most stores are sold out. Yes SOLD OUT!!!

Ok. I think I have to admit that I am a Target-a-holic.

So, I went this morning to our local Target to look at the line. I didn't really know what I thought of it. I didn't really like the line in the commercials and felt that the patterns were a bit too busy. But, as things happen, kind of like at Disney, I got caught up. It's prettier in person. I wouldn't go head to toe Missoni, but a cute pair of flats with jeans and a white tee works for me.

Anyhow, when I got to our local Target the racks were looking a bit empty. There was, maybe, one to two items of each thing left. I picked up a sweater in my size, the last one, and thought I would just hang on to it while I shopped.

As I walked down a bit I saw these two shopping carts full of Missoni merchandise with a Target employee standing next to it. I also noticed a customer shopping in the vicinity. I asked the employee if she was putting the merchandising out, thinking that would explain the empty racks "they just hadn't gotten everything put out yet", but, oh no, the other customer was buying the two shopping carts full of merchandise.

So here is what I came away with
A dress, sweater, and shoes for me.
A tunic, skirt, and socks for my little lady.
And two mugs.
Birthday money!

When I got home today I just wanted to take a look see on Ebay to see what was up. The items are already being listed and for more than double what I paid. What is going on? If I decide the pattern is too much for me I think I can at least make a profit by selling on Ebay. Part of me even wishes that I had bought more just so that I could sell it.

I also did a Google search for "Missoni for Target" and found that the Target server crashed this morning due to the demand of shoppers and that stores across the country sold out by 9am. What a rude awakening for those that were going to go shopping on their lunch break!

It was fun today but how crazy!!
