The Look for Less: Serena & Lily Riviera Chairs

You’ve probably seen these gorgeous Serena & Lily Riviera Chairs all over your Facebook and Instagram targeted ads, and in the homes of a lot of influencers. They are gorgeous but definitely an investment piece at over $200 each for dining chairs and over $300 each for barstools (but if you do buy them, make sure to sign up for their emails and get a 20% off code for your first purchase!).

The Look for Less: Rothy’s Dupes!

Love the breathability/comfort of Rothy’s but don’t want to pay $150+ for flats? Here are some companies making similar knit shoes for a lot less:
For the record, I love my Rothy’s, but I also know it’s a huge investment and always like to provide you all with affordable options. I own the Steve Madden Rosy flats in camo and love them, they do run small just like Rothy’s.
1. Kelly & Katie Fonzie Flats – $39.99, Sizes 6-11, come in 3 colors/patterns

2. Steve Madden Rosy Flats – $89 (I’ve also seen them at Nordstrom Rack for way less, as low as $39) – Sizes 5-11, available in 3 colors/patterns

Target Try-On: Business Casual Tops

I’m always looking for nice tops to throw on for work with black pants and flats, because let’s be honest – I have about 5 minutes to get dressed in the morning so this is my go-to business casual “uniform.” I really love the Prologue line at Target for good quality work wear, and am particularly obsessed with the high-low wrap top I found.

(FYI, I am wearing these pants, my Rothy’s and my favorite necklace with my kids initials – which is under $50!)

THIS TOP, ladies. It is SO good (and only $24.99). It is a wrap top that actually fits over my large chest (it has a hook-and-eye closure at the top to keep it in place, it is a high-low fit which means it sits at the perfect place in front without needing to tuck it in, but is lower in the back to make sure you won’t be showing anything you don’t want to show lol. I am wearing the Large and I’d say to size down if you want it more fitted. The pictures online show a much looser/boxier cut and I don’t love the way it looks in those photos. Oh, and it’s available in 3 colors and in Plus Sizes.

IMG_20200227_175237IMG_20200227_175218

This Knox Rose sweater ($29.99) was very comfortable and soft, and great for spring weather because it isn’t too thick. I am wearing the XL.

IMG_20200227_180143IMG_20200227_180132IMG_20200227_180656

I really love this Who What Wear black sleeveless top ($24.99), as it could be worn to work or for a more casual look, and has some great detail to it (I’m wearing a Large for reference). The necklace is also from Target ($14) and could go with a lot of outfits. The top is also available in Plus size.

IMG_20200227_180446IMG_20200227_180437

I was so excited to try on this New Day mint blazer ($34.99, also available in Plus Size) because I have the exact same one from last year in a light blue and I LOVE it (seriously, run out and buy this!) – I get compliments on it all the time and it looks and feels very high quality.  This is a 14 (I own a 12 in the blue version, I think either would work for me). I also think I’d likely wear it with a v-neck top instead of this high-neck top.

IMG_20200227_181038IMG_20200227_181033

I don’t really own a white button-up blouse, as it’s so hard to find one that actually fits over my chest but isn’t then too boxy or loose on the bottom.  This one is really gorgeous, and very soft. I am wearing the XL and it fits me comfortably on top. I am wearing it here tucked-in, but you can tuck it in as well.

Target Clearance Try-On

A lot of winter dresses and sweaters are on clearance at Target right now for 50% off! I stopped by to try on a few things and share them with you all.

(My flats and pants are also from Target)

I actually already own this dress in a Black Size Large and love it. This is the burgundy X-Large and was $13 at my store.



This leopard sweater is actually maternity but I think it fits great and I loved it! In my store it was $13. I’m wearing the XXL.


This New Day sweater is very cute but the sleeves were a bit long. I’m wearing the Large. In my store it was $14.


This New Day sweater (Size Large) is so soft and reminds me of a fair isle sweater from J. Crew. In my store it was only $14.


This Ava & Viv mockneck is very stretchy and soft and only $9! I’m wearing the X.

New Arrivals at Target (and a BOGO Boot Sale!)

Hello again! I haven’t been on here in awhile, due to moving and starting a new job (though I still post good deals over on my Facebook Page).  But I am still at Target all the time, and thought I would share some cute items I have seen there lately (boots are BOGO 50% off, and New Day dresses are 30% off right now):

Also, if you love Madewell shoes, Target has two great Madewell dupes right now. I own the Wenda cut-out booties and love them.
