Spice Up Your Life

First of all, I’d just like to start out by saying, “All hail Queen Victoria!”

Listen, when it comes to reading my mind, Target is approaching Carnac the Magnificent levels of greatness. Dinosaur cookie jars, cute AF doormats, adorable stationary, a shoe section that won’t quit (taking money out of my bank account)? I mean come, on. Let me tell you, the number of times a friend has texted me from the aisles of Bullseye land and said, “I saw this and thought of you” is not small (and I am not mad about it). So when I heard that the keepers of my pocketbook were *finally* teaming up with the one and only Posh Spice, I said, “Stop right there, thank you very much” (and they were like, “Hey you, always on the run – gotta slow it down baby, gotta have some fun” obviously). I’ve been a fan of Victoria Beckham’s fashion line for years. Her collection’s smart sophistication and clean graphic lines always speak to my soul, and I’ve gotta say her collaboration with Target is all I hoped it would be and then some. Between the beautiful brights and the stark black and whites, it’s a collection that feels tailor-made for little ol’ me and I knew that if I only managed to snag one piece it absolutely had to be this one. I mean, it’s basically me in dress form, guys. Quite frankly, it’s creepy and it’s cutesy and all together spooky how this dress makes all of my Wednesday Addams dreams come true (with wasically wabbits on the collar? UGH. SO FRIGGING CUTE). Sure, it also comes in a charming millennial blush pink, but for me? It’s go Bunnicula or go home.

The Truth of The Matter Is…

Guys, this blogging thing is hard sometimes! While these are all outfits I love constructed from clothes I adore, sometimes I find myself trying to build a story and where sometimes there really just isn’t one. Believe me, I’m definitely not some kind of wunderkind who has it all figured out. I mean, we’ve all seen my senior photo, we knows this to be true (Haven’t seen it? It’s hidden somewhere in another post on this blog…Happy hunting!). I wish I could say that I was the kind of organized genius who knew exactly what they were doing when they planned their outfit, but I am just so not that person (in fact, I’m barely an outfit planning person). I’m much more of a toss open the closet doors and see where the mood takes me kind of gal. A fly-by-the-seat-of-your-fabulous-pants type, if you will. And to be completely honest? I like it that way. Sure, it means that sometimes (*cough* right now *cough*) I’m just a girl sitting in front of a blank computer screen, trying to will a post into existence. But you know what? 1) That creativity and spontaneity have led me to some pretty interesting choices that I never would have dreamed of making 5 years ago and 2) all those wild and crazy choices also help me cherish the quiet moments like this one. There are no bells and nary a whistle in sight – just a cardigan, a cami, cropped pants (which give me all sorts of feelings, but that’s a story for a different day), and a kickass pair of shoes.
