I feel like I won the lottery...

{Dress: Target | Lipstick: Revlon Wild Orchid | Shoes: Similar | Bracelet: The Way We Are | Watch: Fossil}

You know that feeling when you are in a time crunch and your kid needs to get home, but you are in Target, which is like your favorite place ever.  All you want is time to peruse everything, but all you have is 30 minutes to check out all the goodies and get all the things you actually came here to get in the first place.

This was one of those times.  I blitzed through Target like a tornado throwing random things into my cart, knowing that I would probably have to come back to return most of it.  This dress was one of those things.  It was too pretty to pass up but I knew the chances of it working were to slim to none.  But you know worked!  And all day long I kept turning to my husband and being like, aren't I pretty?  He started ignoring me when I repeated this for the fourth time (kudos to him for lasting that long).  But honestly, I really feel like I won the lottery with this treasure!

The print is amazing and bold and fun all at the same time.  So Target, I tip my hat to you.  I should never have doubted you.  You clearly know what you are doing.


  1. Oh yeah... I know that feeling... all too well! Lovely dress! Maxis are really starting to grow on me!

  2. You look absolutely gorgeous in these photos - and what a pretty maxi! Looks like you did an awesome job during your 30 minutes at Target :)

  5. Yes I know that feeling for sure! I'm lucky to get out and look for anything for myself when I have the kiddos along! The maxi is cute and that is so great that it worked without having to try it!


  6. That maxi looks great on you! Love the colors too! Definitely hard to go shopping with my baby! I'm looking at her and hoping ok.. will you sleep just for one more errand! :)
