Loving Life after 50

Hello Target, I missed you.

A five day weekend in the U.S. and you know what that means right, hello Target.  I will take whatever opportunity I can to hit that store and every time I do I want to cry… why oh why are were my fellow Canadians so fickle, how could you not see all the glory that could be….

and then once I got there… How in heavens name did the new line escape my attention? I mean seriously folks, I know I have tried to bury my head in the sand but how did I miss this, really? I know I caught a glimpse of the mustard yellow tassel shorts on Shanna’s Instagram but lord I had no idea there were so many other fabulous pieces, I found a skirt and crop top plus a jumpsuit and the shorts, well those were ripped straight off the mannequin.

Then being me I had to wander around the store and found these awesome Marquis signs for $8.00..and me flying on an airplane with a full suitcase, I could not even get one ( so Hello world if you all want to pick up one for me, Christmas is coming)

 and then good lord, all things nautical and Navy,Pink and Gold, these pillows are a must have, I really need them.

and how about a gold basket

and seriously these Bookends…..

I swear to you I shed a tear as I walked away but I could not resist this cup.. I justified it as it was perfect for poolside drinks and easy to carry back home. There ya have it the start of my Christmas List or maybe an excuse to start planning a Blogger Bus Trip to Watertown or maybe Syracuse where we could hit several..  Do you all think one of those Change.Org Petitions to get Target to ship to Canada would work. I am willing to try anything.

Be prepared this week for maybe a few Target outfits, starting with the  Crop top and Skirt. ( sadly I did not get the Maxi I wanted so if you see it in Medium garb it OK) I discovered that my Banana Republic Cardigan  and Lookbook necklace matched perfectly. I thought my Shoe dazzle neutral straps would be perfect.

Snapped a few pictures when I got home from work today because hello, the rain stopped and the sun came out, and True Confession time, because I was away from work for a few days as soon as I got to the office I jumped quickly onto my computer and forgot to change my shoes, next thing I knew it was lunch time and I was still in my converse.  I think the heels looked awesome but the office never got to see them.

    You know how MUUUUCH I have missed Target. August needs to get here soon lol. Looks like they have adorable things, right now. Love that dress. IRL as I am typing this I am also wearing an aztec dress. Both pairs of shoes are lovely especially the chucks.

  • I love the converse with the outfit. Dare I say even more than the heels! Even though they're more casual, they're fun and you get that great pop of yellow colour at the bottom that matches the yellow cardigan on the top half.

    And the aztec print is great on you.

  • Thank you,. I too love the converse with this probably why I kept them on all day.

  • I was laughing yesterday, 150 pairs of heels and lately I have been wearing converse with everything. Oh well, they are cute right

  • I can so relate to this. We have Australian Target and they're pretty awesome, but when we were in the States on holiday late 2013, we drove from Palm Springs to San Diego. A pitstop happened next to a Super Target, right when the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection was in store. Hola!

    it was like our biggest Target mixed with our biggest Priceline (kinda like Walgreens but on a much smaller scale) mixed with a massive supermarket. And it was awesome!

    Loving the yellow Cons!

  • Man you have me missing Target now. You sure know how to rock converse and dresses.

  • Converse are so comfortable. If I could wore them to work I would. I'm stuck wearing steal toe shoe.

    Love your post and all your great finds, but it makes me miss Target so much more. I still can't believe they are gone after such a short time here…sniff, sniff…
