Truth be told, I was actually going to return this Phillip Lim for Target dress. It was in a Target bag, hanging on my doorknob ready to go back to the store. Then, I came across this blog post by Suburbs Mama and I decided I’d give the dress another try. Rita, this dress has you to thank for its salvation because I LOVE how you styled it with the navy blazer. Thanks for the inspiration girl!

A little bit of a departure from our regularly scheduled outfit posts to share some nursery plans. Here are the main components of our nursery so far — all the furniture is scheduled to come in by next week and after that I can’t wait to get started on some little projects to dress up our daughter’s walls! Are you looking for some nursery inspiration? If so check out my Nursery Inspo pinterest board!

Hi! It’s been a long time and boy have I missed you. As you already know, there’s a really good reason for our little hiatus, my sister is prego!!! That means I’m going to be an auntie! I am so excited, and I may or may not have started shopping for the little one! You know I’ve totally shifted my shopping habits when I log onto Facebook and the ads are for baby essentials….he he!
Well onto the outfit. I walked into one of my local stores and found this super cute NJ necklace. As a true Jersey girl, I couldn’t help myself. I decided to step it up by pairing it with the state university’s colors, my alma matter, Rutgers University. Go Scarlet Knights!
And last but not least, do you love my new bag? I’m normally all over Target during their collaboration with high end designers, however I was at a wedding the night before and just couldn’t get up in the middle of the night to shop. Not to mention, that many of these collections left much to be desired. Well, boy was I wrong about Phillip Lim. I’m still not a huge fan of the clothes but the bags exceeded my expectations!!! So how did I get this bag you wonder? My awesome sister, who didn’t consume nearly as many vodka sodas as I did, was up all night shopping for us. Thank you Sees!!! If you follow us on Instagram, you’ll see the awesome collection we have. Love love love!
I’m so excited to be back!!! So tell me, were you able to score any Phillip Lim pieces?
