Splurge vs. Save & J.Crew New Markdowns

You all have probably noticed by now that fringe is HOT HOT HOT right now.  I have seen some awesome fringe bags from Chanel to Proenza Schouler, but I really think this is just a "fun trend", so it is probably smart not to spend a lot of money on something with fringe.  Enter the Target Fringe Bag that is nearly identical to some other expensive ones.  

Target also has some similar fringe booties to my favorite pair that I wore recently. 

Speaking of deals, J.Crew has marked down several new items today including a lot of popular ones that you may have seen lately.  To top it off, you get an extra 40% off sale with code "TREAT"

Here is this dress that I wore in a post a while back ... 

And this popular Pom Pom top ... 

How about the perfect nude summer heel?

There are seriously too many deals to include in one post, so check out the new to sale arrivals by clicking HERE

This & That: Working Out Edition

I go through phases of working out and not working out (mostly not working out), and I am currently in a phase where I am working out every single day (doing barre and yoga).  When I do actually start to work out I tend to get OCD about it and don't want to miss a day! The thing about working out every day, though, is the need for a lot of workout clothes.  I am constantly doing laundry and trying not to ruin workout clothes with my less than great laundering skills.  I am so needing some more recs on workout clothes though.  My typical get-up is some sort of legging pant, a sports bra, and a LOOSE tank top.  I cannot stand tank tops that are tight and clingy. 

Wearing my favorite Target short-sleeved sweatshirts (currently on clearance in store for $6.88) and Target leggings

The most amazing Lululemon camo wunder unders

More Onzie pants ... 

Another pair of Target leggings ... 

And how awesome is this skull shirt from Target that was only $12.99?

Another recommendation I am needing is a light-weight scent to wear while working out.  I hate to wear perfume because it's so strong, so I need something light, preferably a mist, to wear without giving the room a case of second-hand perfume. 

So, friends, I need some halp.  Please comment with suggestions.  Have a great Tuesday!

Playing With Patterns

Today I am teaming up with my friends Kathleen at Carrie Bradshaw Lied, Katie at Out and Outfit, and Maureen at The Northeast Girl to show what fun it is to play with patterns! We each took a pattern and showcased our go-to look. Be sure to check out theirs as well- they are some stylish gals!

For me, it's fairly obvious that I love skirts, so I just had to show you all this adorable skirt from Anthropologie that I picked up during their sale off of sale event a couple of weeks ago.  PS- It's still on sale and runs fairly small (I'm wearing a small for reference).

Skirt: Anthropologie (on sale) | Top: Madewell | Shoes: Old Navy | Necklace: Banana Republic | Bag: Louis Vuitton 

Be sure to check out everyone's blog for the specifics on their outfits.  Do you all like these fun collaborations?  I think it can definitely spice up the routine we bloggers get into sometimes. Enjoy and have a great Monday!
