Target Finds Friday: Swimwear for the kids- at a great value

In the middle of winter it’s hard to imagine that summer, and bathing suit season, are right around the corner! 

And every year I procrastinate looking for swimwear for the kids since I figure we have so much time. But this year the kids started swim lessons this month. That helped get me on the ball to realize last years suits barely fit and it was time to place an order.

So where did I start? Target of course.

They just launched a full line of swimwear for both boys and girls and still have plenty of sizes stocked.

I can’t rave enough about these suits. They are my go to each year. 

The fit is great. They offer different silhouettes for girls which help when different cuts will fit my daughter better than others. My son is on the tall and skinny side and these board shorts stay up great even when he’s jumping off the diving board.

Quality and value is top notch. I wash them in garment bags in the washer and air dry. They hold up all season. The kids out grow them before the suits start to look too worn. 

So overall, I recommend you get ahead and stock up for the summer or maybe you have a vacation planned this Spring. Either way, the kids will look adorable and you’ll know you got a great value!

Here are their favorite looks from last summer and their picks for this year:

New Year, New Foyer: Decorating An Empty Space

New year, new space…… yes! Since we moved into our current house 7 1/2 years ago we been renovating little by little. To complete the bottom floor we just needed to design our foyer. I always had an idea of what I wanted to do with the space but needed that one piece of inspiration.

Well, I found that inspiration in of all places, Target! Of course!! This bench started everything!Mobile Image (2)

That was all I needed and the whole vision was in place (in my head anyway). When I get started on a space I always start with shopping my own house. I look for pieces that I can use to decorate a space from the other rooms of my house and the attic and basement for items I am not using currently and already have.

I found the pillows, candles, small bowl, throw blanket and farm market can from all over my house. Note that I always buy my throw pillow covers (click here to see current sale pillow covers) at Pottery Barn in the sale section. I buy the covers and put them over my existing pillows. This is a great way to update any room by adding color or pattern.

Another great way to add color or character to the foyer is to paint the inside of your front door. I painted mine the same color as the outside, but you can paint what ever color you like.

Here are the before pics of this space:

pre foyer

And here are the after pics:

after 2 foyer

It is not over decorated or cluttered, that’s not my style.  I like clean but warm spaces.  I especially love this rug. Whether you add just a mat in front of your door or a larger rug, it is definitely needed for people to wipe their feet on.

Rug  – I love the tone it sets for this space.  It is a 5×7 rug, but you an do a mat just at the front door too.

Welcome sign – This sign was made by a local business Barn Picks & Stuff.  I absolutely love them and there products. Everything is hand made or reclaimed and refurbished.  They are a Facebook business, click on the “Welcome Sign” and see what they offer.  Many of the items are one of a kind!  Here is a closer look at it:

Light Fixture – I always use Pottery Barn for my light fixtures in all the renovations we have done.  Great quality and design.  Here are some of the other fixtures we have use throughout the house:  Large Rustic Glass Pendant (kitchen), Rustic Glass Sconce (bathroom) Armonk 6 Arm Chandelier (dining room)

Bench – This is what started the whole design of the space!  This bench is only available in store but there is a link for the site if you click on bench.

Table – This table adds a different material as it is made of metal.  Love how it fits the space. Here is closer look at the table & bench:

I still need to decide what to put above the bench and would love to hear your thoughts!!! Let me now what you think!

I am so excited this is finally done and I love it!

Happy decorating!!

Target Finds Friday

Target is at it again!!  Below are 3 major finds that I needed to bring to you all this week!

So I was doing my weekly stroll through Target with my daughter and came across this coat! I immediately had to put it on. I have been wanting one of those Teddy Coats that are so on trend this season but did not want to spend the price tags that are out there which are north of $100. This entire outfit was under $123! Please excuse the un-manicured pedi!

Target find 2

Coat – Love the fit and make of this coat.  On trend and perfect with this black dress or jeans and a t-shirt. TTS, I am wearing a small.

Black Dress – This is the perfect t-shirt dress.  It has an amazing fit, not clingy and super soft.  I love it with the shoes here, tall boots or booties for now, cute sneakers or sandals for spring!  So many options to dress up or more casual! TTS, l am wearing a small.

Shoes – I have to say that I have never purchased a pair of shoes from Target for myself, but I love these.  TTS and comfortable! Block heel!

Now for this sweatshirt.  It is possibly one the most comfy items I own right now and I can’t stop wearing it!  And for $17.99 totally worth it! This is Junior sizing so I sized up to a medium.

Camo (I am wearing), Elephant graphic version, “Blessed” verbiage“All I Need is Love and Tacos” verbiage.  All are so cute!

Next I was on my way to the check out when I found this bench!!  I have been looking for a bench for my entryway for over a year now.  The ones I find are either just not right or too expensive.  The bench is perfect!! I see it layered with a pretty blanket and pillows.

Mobile Image (2)I do not see it on the website yet to provide a link but as soon as I do I will re-post.  For now it is in store.  It is wood and approx 3-4 feet wide. Price is $199.99. Just what I have been looking for!
