Hey guys!!! There was a crispness to the air this morning and I could not be more excited. 60 degree weather during the summer–get’s this Florida girl excited.
I have been wanting to create this blog post for the longest time, but man, the start of the school year has been an incredibly stressful one. It seems that out of all my 11 years of teaching, this has been the more stressful start to the school year BY FAR.
Target décor is always amazing but there is something about fall décor that makes me so happy about the upcoming season(s).
Here is some of my favorite finds…I will make sure to link all the products as well so it is easy for you to shop anything you like.
I was in quite a funk the couple days after we got home from our 4th of July vacation to Tennessee to visit my family. We had the best time celebrating independence in the mountains–don’t get me wrong, but coming back home, I had a ton of laundry, unpacking, and lots to catch up on. It always takes me a couple days to get everything back to normal–so to speak.
Yesterday, I got up, got ready (I even put on some makeup) and I felt like a brand new person! It’s funny how just the act of getting ready can shift your mindset sometimes. I asked my husband if he could watch the kiddos and this mama left for a Target date with MYSELF.
Not even kidding, I had the best time. I treated myself to a matcha latte, strolled the aisles with nothing to purchase in mind, and I had no kids asking me to go to the toy aisle, or “mommy, are you done yet.”
Can any other mamas out there relate, lol?
The most fun I had was trying on clothes–for the fun of it! I guess I had back to school outfits in the back of my mind but in reality, it was fun to play dress up–the perfect medicine to get out of that mental funk I couldn’t seem to shake two days before.
If you follow me on Instagram (@angietorreswilson), I had a poll on each outfit. It was so fun to get you guys involved on what you liked and what you didn’t like. TBH, it didn’t make my job picking out the outfits any easier because you guys seemed to like almost everything, lol!
If you missed out on the fun yesterday, I wanted to share the outfits on here and break everything down for you–just in case you liked these outfits as much as me. What I love about Target is how up to date they are with fashion trends and its incredibly affordable.
Slim Fit Tank Top (linked) is only $9.00 and it a staple for summer! I am wearing a large. It’s so soft and comfortable. These purple pants are life–so incredibly comfortable, high-waisted, and it comes in so many color options (linked here). The pants are $29.99. I would size down one. I am normally a size 12 and bought a size 10.
Even though this dress was a little wrinkled, I fell in love with how comfortable and colorful this dress is (linked). The ruffles on the sleeves are the perfect touch. There is a little cutout in the back as well. This dress is $29.99.
This is the same dress (linked) as above, just in a different pattern. Both are priced the same. Which one do you like more?
I believe 100% of you guys wanted me to buy this beauty (linked)! It is so comfy and perfect for summer. I could imagine wearing it during fall as well with a cute little sweater. It’s at a modest length as well. I am wearing a size medium. This dress is $27.99.
Knox Rose at Target has so much cute affordable options. This tee is no exception (linked). The details allow you to dress it up or down. I am wearing them with some shorts I got recently from American Eagle. I am wearing a size large and this shirt costs $24.99.
I think this shirt has to be my favorite (linked). It is Knox Rose like the shirt above. I love the embroidery and cute little buttons. Again, I totally see this being able to dress up or down. I am wearing a size large and this shirt costs $27.99.
I appreciate you guys shopping with me! It was so fun. I would love to do it again soon…but the questions is do I hit up Target again or go somewhere new like Old Navy?
Hey guys!!! I hope you are having the best weekend. I wanted to share my favorite finds from Target’s summer sale–which ends this Monday, July 5th. To be honest, I am a little underwhelmed with the clothing options on sale–but I linked the few things I thought would be of interest!!
This sleeveless button-front dress is super cute. They have a variety of colors but the black dress and the pink in white is currently fully stocked. It was originally priced at $29.99 and on sale for $25.00.
I found the cutest summer tank that you can dress up or down! All for the sale price of $6.00!! Say whattt, I will take one in every color!
I love a good pair of comfy shorts and these do not disappoint! They are on sale for $17.00.
This summer sale you can get up to 15% off using the code JULY on select pieces of furniture.
This end table isn’t necessarily on sale but it is 20% off with same day order services! I thought it was too cute I just had to share. It is a Studio McGee piece.
Another Studio McGee piece that is a little on the pricey side but gives me all the Serena and Lily vibes! Originally this piece costs $330.00 and is on sale for $264.00.
I have been eyeing these chairs for a little while and I can’t believe they are on sale–$50.00 off the original price of $250.00.
I love our coffee table but do wish this one was around when we were shopping for one! I love how chunky it is and it is priced well at $104.00
I will post anything else I randomly find throughout the next day or so but wanted to share what I could with you all. Check my liketoknow.it for all my other finds! Just click the picture below 🙂
Lovin’ all the cute options American Eagle has released in their new arrivals. At this point in the summer, I am starting to look for clothes for teaching next year, but to be honest, I just don’t wanna, lol! The school year was a doozy and I am holding on to summer as long as humanly possible!
I have linked some of my favorites below–they also had a ton of crop top options, but this mama ain’t about that life, but if you are, no shame in your game 🙂
Flare jeans are makin’ their way back into the scene and I am here for it!!!
The smiley hat just makes me happy so don’t mind me if I order that right now and wear it the rest of summer!
Gosh, who doesn’t love a good summer sandals. If I could live in sandals forever–I totally would. This Florida girl had to break my sandal habit quick, especially now that I live in a colder state during the winter.
I don’t know about you, but my sandal collection could never be large enough 😉
I am going to link some of my favorite Target sandals for you guys below in hopes you will love them just as much as I do!!
There is nothing like a cute and affordable shoe!!!
Below are the shoes I found that I thought you might love too! Most Target stores already have these shoes in stock. The if they don’t and you are a red card holder, you can have these shipped to your house for free.
Let me know what you guys think and as always, happy shopping!!
Hey there guys!! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday! It’s been a minute since I have posted on here and this summer, I want to be a little more intentional about posting more often.
I wanted to share some of the Prime Day deals I found this morning while browsing through Amazon. I plan on finding some more throughout the day but I thought I would share some of the things I found so far.
This teacher mama loves all the support and I appreciate you all more than you know!
What a freaking school year…spoken by a teacher, I am going to tell ya’ll that even with 10 years teaching experience, nothing could have prepared me for the stress that I had to ensue this year. I know I am not the only teacher to feel this way…it has been such a unique time– chaos and the unknown was brought into my profession that I was once confident in.
If this year has taught me anything, its not to take anything for granted–especially within the classroom. I know every state and school has been affected differently, but when I say that teachers deserve all the love–we do 🙂
I have composed a little list of things you can gift any teacher with to show them they are appreciated.
They are all Amazon Prime–so depending on where you live, shipping should come before the end of the week!
I know that teachers appreciate the love more than you will know–anything little present makes our day–especially us high school teachers! Even if a student write a thank you card, or gifts me a little bag of candy, the gesture goes a long way!
I don’t know what came over me this weekend but I was MOTIVATED to get some stuff done.
Not sure about you all, but I get in these moods where I need to nest (even though this mama is NOT pregnant).
Over the weekends, I typically find myself in two different types of moods.
When I am in this mood, my kids and I find ourselves staying at home all weekend–unwinding from a stressful work/school week.
In this mood, grocery shopping is delivered, house is somewhat cleaned, and we spend our time watching Disney movies, eating popcorn, ordering Door Dash, and cuddling on our huge sectional sofa.
Get Crap Done Mood
In this mood, my kids and and I find ourselves havin’ fun while getting some stuff done. Ok, who am I kidding, I am most likely the one getting the stuff done–but they are pretty good helpers.
House is deep cleaned and organized.
We spend lots of time outside.
We bake and make some pretty epic meals at home.
This weekend, I was in total Get Crap Done mood.
Since Friday was an e-Learning day in Greenville County, I was able to work from home, teacher Lilli, all while organizing our toy closet upstairs. We desperately need more storage space in our house and figured I would tackle that project while I was motivated to do so.
I decided to get the kiddos involved and they were ended up helping SO much. We organized things in piles and the kids had so much and almost made it into a competition of sorts. There was a trash pile, a donate pile, a Roblox pile, a Pokemon pile, a figure pile, and a lego pile. Whewww, that was a lot of piles.
With Jonah having mostly toys, we had not gone through Lilli’s closet in quite some time. As she is 7 years old, finding things that were 4T definitely sent me down memory lane.
As kids get older, I think it is important for them to be a part of the process. Being able to determine what they can let go of, donate it, and mentally understand the importance of helping bless others with the things we no longer use or have grown out of.
Feature Wall Update
On top of our organizational Friday, I spent the day Saturday at Lilli’s soccer games and running errands. Sunday, after church, we said goodbye to my parents as they were both here for the weekend, and I started a little project on my own.
As many of your know, we have been turning our SPEC home into our style–room by room. Our last big project was our Front Room–which used to be our dining room, and I was itching to do something else in our home (just not as expensive, lol).
I bought PVC molding for $2.58 a piece (I bought a total of 25 pieces). I basically eyed the pattern and glued the pieces down with a strong glue (linked here) and caulked the seems for a finished look.
All in all, this project cost be about $100 total. Even though I would love an updated sectional, we have to budget a bit before pulling the trigger on that purchase. In the meantime, we love adding a little bit of color and life to the space.
Let me know what you guys think or if you have any questions ❤
