Get a Jump on Fall Fashion with Great Sales!

I haven’t even taken my summer vacation yet, but I am already getting ready for fall. Lucky for me (and you!), many stores are too. Most stores are putting new fall merchandise on sale to entice customers in the door, hoping that they’ll help to clear out the summer inventory as well while they’re there. Gap was having a 40% off sale the other day, and I snagged this great sweater for $24. From the look of things, stripes are going to be HUGE this fall, because they are showing up everywhere!

I also picked up a pair of jeans while I was at the Gap because my favorite pair are so well-loved that they have holes in the knees. The 1969 Sexy Boot jeans fit really well, and they’re just $59.50. I just can’t justify the crazy-expensive jeans I used to buy pre-Olivia. It’s way more fun to spend that money on cute new clothes for her!

A couple of days before that, I picked up a pair of skinny cords from Target. They are a bit darker in person than they are in the picture below (more of a mustard yellow), which makes them great for fall. And at $23, you can’t beat the price! While I love, love, love my Vintage Matchstick Cords from J.Crew, even at the outlet they’re just a bit more than $23, so I couldn’t pass these up. (Not that that will stop me from scoping out the outlets on vacation to hopefully pick up another J.Crew pair!)

The New “Shops” at Target

I went to Target yesterday for the first time in a while and was surprised to see that they have adopted “shops” much in the way the new JCP has done. It must be the latest thing in retail. Target’s shops include The Webster (Miami), Privet House (Connecticut), Cos Bar (Aspen), Polka Dog Bakery (Boston), and The Candy Store (San Francisco).

The Candy Store’s collection of gourmet and nostalgic candy would make a cute and quick hostess gift for all those summer barbecues, and some of the Cos Bar nail polishes are bright and trendy but a little out there for me.

The real stars of the shops are Privet House and The Webster. The kitchen and housewares from Privet House are great. A few of my favorite pieces:

Warren Orchards Black Fig & Honey Candle, $15.99

Open Storage Box, $34.99

White Embossed Pitcher, $24.99

White Round Basket, $34.99

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Webster shop features men’s, women’s, and girls’ clothing, as well as shoes and accessories. I scored this great sheath dress, which doesn’t look like much on the hanger, but it fits really nicely:

Sheath Dress, $39.9

A few of my other Webster favorites:

Infant Girls' Swim Suit, $14.99

Dress, $42.99

Men's Button Up Shirt, $29.99

Cap Toe Flat, $29.99

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The prices are a tad higher than you usually see at Target, but they are on par with some of the other designer partnerships Target has done in the past. In any case, it’s nice to see a little something different for a change!


How Does Your Garden Grow? With Little Baby Watering Cans!

Olivia has taken to following me around the deck and “helping” me water all of our potted herbs. So when I saw this little hippo watering can at Target (in the Dollar Spot no less!), I couldn’t pass it up. She carried it all around the store, shouting “Hiippp-O!” They also have a yellow ducky one. She’s just so adorable walking from plant to plant, it doesn’t even matter that most of the water ends up on the deck rather than in the pot!


Great Deal in Target Dollar Spot!

I always make a point to swing through the Dollar Spot whenever I go to Target. I don’t usually buy much more than a notepad for the frig or a toy for my daughter, but I do occasionally come across something worth getting (for a great deal, no less). The other day, I found these adorable springtime prints on everything from notepads to gift bags to stationary. I can never have too many gift bags or thank you notes on hand, so I took the opportunity to stock up. They’re so cute, I’m thinking about going back for more! The gift bags come 2 for $1 and the stationary comes in packs of 8. Can’t beat that!
