I Swear I Don’t Shop That Much

I just want to discuss a few things with you guys.

First, you’ve all heard about The Shops at Target, right? I think word has spread, but just in case: Target is working with small boutique owners across the country to bring a line of their products to Target stores for six-week runs. I got this amazing coral tray for just $19.99 from the Privet House shop – which I love, and not just because the original is in Connecticut (my homeland).


I also picked up these navy blue seahorse bookends. I believe they’re by Target Home, though I can’t find them on the site to confirm. Either way, $9.99, y’all!


I’m a sucker for anything nautical, and some day, these will hold up my cookbooks on the imaginary cookbook shelf in my imaginary nautical-themed kitchen.

Next, I also would like to congratulate my sequined Coach bag: she had a baby!


My new Coach Poppy Zippy wristlet was another early birthday gift from my mom. It’s perfect for separating out my must-haves in my massive purse, and I love that I can take it on the go if I only need a few things.


And lastly, I just wanted to let y’all know that I finally found a pair of subtle cat eyes that look OK on me! Please observe this super-awkward photo I took of myself in my backyard.


They’re the Oakley Fringe. I know Oakley isn’t that hip, but I don’t really have the funds for designer right now, and plus, I tried on all the designer cat eyes in Nordstrom and they all looked terrible on me! I love how these fit my face, and what’s cool is that because Oakley is a sporty brand, they’re really sturdy and great for running. I’ve wanted a pair of cat eyes ever since I spotted the beautiful Karen Walkers and House of Harlows at Atlantic-Pacific, so I’m happy as a clam.

Have you picked up anything exciting lately?

    I love those seahorse bookends!! Being happy as a clam fits in with your nautical theme! It’s all good!

    • I love them, too – and so cheap!

  • Haha, I also got bookends for my kitchen to hold up all my cookbooks since I don’t have much shelf storage. But they’re owls, and nothing else in my house is owl-themed. 🙂

    • Owls go EVERYWHERE!

  • Oooh, the sunglasses look fantastic on you! I, too, have a shopping problem. It’s okay, you can embrace it. 😉
