Last Friday is when I would have normally posted my budgeting bloggers post of the month, but I only bought one pair of jeans last month, plus a couple of items that hadn’t arrived yet. No, I’m not kidding (..I don’t think. If I bought something else, I’ve forgotten already)! So instead, I’m sharing some Friday favorites I’ve found on recent shopping excursions that I think you’ll loveee (and will have trouble resisting).
Last night this gorgeous Lilly dress ($49.99) caught my eye at TJ Maxx. No, literally – I was on my way to look at shoes, glanced over, and saw it. I beelined it over there to get a closer look; alas, it wasn’t my size. Still, I carried her around for a few minutes to make her feel appreciated. 😉 I was just so excited to see Lilly at my local TJ Maxx! I’ve seen many IGers I follow have this luck, but it was a first for me.
This bag (very Kate Spade-esque, no?) is currently available at Target. If I hadn’t just secured this gorgeous peach tote as my spring bag, it may have come home with me! What a perfect structured bag for starting that new job or summer internship. It also comes in black!
This necklace reminded me a lot of some recent Kendra Scott pieces I’ve been seeing, only this one is on clearance at Kohl’s. Not a bad dupe for only $5!
I know I’ve mentioned this, but I’m seriously obsessed with home decor lately. Since my move date isn’t close enough to actually be purchasing (or is it – I’ll be a Floridian in about a month and a half!), I’ve been snapping pictures everywhere I go to remind me of what I like. How pretty are these pillows from Target ($24.99 ea.)?
Everybody and their sister has seen this collection by now, but I spotted these beauties a few weeks ago and still had to share – how classic is the pink and navy theme? I love. I don’t think I’ll be able to get Sam on board, but a girl can dream, right?
Please pay no attention to my bruised-up right arm – I had a little plasma donation mishap. But I love the color of this tee and these gorgeous floral shorts were *almost* mine.
I love this decor that’s nautical without being as in-your-face (and therefore maybe more couple-friendly?) than the pink/navy collection I have above. I especially love the octopus wall hang, the anchor hooks, and the maritime signal flags shadowbox.
I’m waiting (not-so-)patiently for this raincoat to go on sale… I got a 10% off coupon from a coworker that is good transaction-wide – and get this, it doesn’t list the Lilly line as an exclusion. I’m praying it works on Lilly, and if it does, I may throw this jacket in at that time (phewf, that’s going to be an expensive day!).
More home decor, a la Kohl’s. I’ve been exploring the idea of either having a bar cart (like the one above) or a coffee station on wheels (thanks Pinterest), so I’ve been eyeing all my options.
What’s on your favorites list this Friday? Be sure to take a look at my picks from the Lilly for Target line, shared last week!
