5 Things Making Us More Pumped Than Old School Reeboks

theorchidboutique.com

Happy Friday, darlings!  I hope everyone’s had a great week.  I’m personally amped as I’m headed out in a couple hours to reunite with two of my college besties back in Bloomington, Indiana – aka our college town.  Aka the scene of late nights, bad decisions, and one fine college education.  I can’t even handle the excitement.

Anywho, speaking of besties, my home slice Steph and I pooled together five things we’re loving right now… Here goes!:

1) The Age of Adaline, starring Blake Lively, out next weekend:

2) This plucky little ditty below from hip hop band Jurassic 5, who I would’ve never expected to produce a song with this kinda sound. I’m sometimes listen to it on repeat when I’m posted up at work, all stressed out and shiz:

3) THIS WEBSITE, WHICH JUST…MAKES… ME SO HAPPY:

4) Christina Aguilera’s spot-on impersonation of Britney Spears: 

 

5) This clean front entry of a Connecticut home is simple yet totally inviting.  Everything about it is charming. More pix here. PS: Those sconces…

Have a marvelous weekend!

Death, Taxes, and TARGET.

This past weekend Easter came a week early for me. As I’m wont to do, I do-si-do’d into my church Target for my various sundries, begging my inner willpower to resist temptations and not leave with a $250 credit card charge. (WHOOPS!) FAIL. I managed to leave with a Brinks truckload of goodies, because there are so many good things. I’ve rounded up a gaggle of ‘em below, but hurry – you never know how long these deals are gonna last:

Women’s Cheri Pumps | Now $27.99 (reg $34.99)

Women's Cheri Sam and Libby pumps

How hot are these shoes?!  Right: On Cheat Chic (who you MUST follow). I literally can’t stop thinking about these shoes. It’s debatable how long I have to wear them until my dogs start barking, but they’re practically perfect.

Plaid print clutch wallet | $16.99

White clutch from Target

Because at some point I’mma have to ditch my beloved Grandma’s wallet I’ve been carrying since ’06… Or maybe I don’t, but this wallet’s adorbs.

Mossimo Footbed Sandals in Gold | $19.99 (reg $24.99)

Mossimo Footbed Sandals in Gold | Target | Covet Living

Hi Birkenstock, meet your sassy hippy cousin who’s WAY less $$$ than you.

Women’s Reversible Tote Handbag: $36.99

Women's Reversible tote bag | Target | Covet Living

Perfect for a work bag.  There are a bunch of fun colors to choose from, too.

Faribault for Target Wool Striped Shawl | $29.98 (reg. $59.99)

Wool Shawl - Prairie Stripe

Something tells me this won’t be available online much longer. It’s way marked down, and way cute as a sweet little wrap.  Steph bought one similar at a cute boutique and I steal it whenever possible.

Pom Pom Kimono Jacket | $22.99

Pom Pom Kimono Jacket

Kimono and Karrie | Target | Covet Living

Right now Tarjay’s got kimonos for days, and they’re cuuuute. Right: Moi, a couple weekends ago in this Kimono I snapped up. I get compliments whenever I wear it!

Solid Fedora Hat in Brown | $16.99 (reg. $24.99)

Mossimo Fedora Hat in Brown + Karrie | Target | Covet Living  You guys, this hat is just perfect. Right: Again, sporting it last weekend. Plus there are a couple others here and here. Whether you’re wearing these to a festival this year or while watching the kids around the pool, they’re so versatile and go with everything!

Fedora hats in burgundy and black | Target | Covet Living

Women’s Carolyn Slip On | $19.99

Women's Carolyn Slip On | Target | Covet Living

Comfy and casual but very So Cal stylish

Women’s Woven Hobo Handbag with Tassels | $59.99

Women's Woven Hobo Handbag with Tassels at Target | Covet Living

It’s a smidge pricier than the usual Target fare but it’s just so cute. Muy on trend right now, too.

And last, the most controversial clothing pick yet, as all my friends think this new trend is ridonk but I think it’s kinda cute…. because I’m perpetually my 15 year old self….

Denim Overalls | $34.99

Denim Overalls | Target | Covet Living

Listen, I get it, Color Me Badd is no longer in heavy rotation and you’re dubious that overalls should once again be as well. But c’mahhhnnnn, if worn slightly more fitting, rolled at the bottom and NOT WORN WITH MULES like on the Target model above left, they can be cute and sporty.

Ok, that’s it for now… Has anyone seen anything cute on Tarjay I should be aware of? And I’m thinking of posting more regularly on the wicked cute stuff seen at the big red bullseye. Lemme know if you think that’s a good idea.
