Two of the most horrifying words to hear? Swimsuit shopping. The thought of this makes everyone cringe as we tell ourselves we will just eat one more Girl Scout cookie, then the next thing we know we’re opening the next box. I have to be in a swimsuit next week?
Good news for you, I LOVED seeing how many cute one-piece swimsuits college girls were sporting over spring break. After all, modest is still hottest.
On another note, I was trying on swimsuits in Target when this little black one happened to just be hanging there, so I decided to give it a try. Needless to say, it went home with me.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited about spring break. Every corner I turn, there seems to be something there haunting me that reminds me that it is so close, but so far away. Here I’ve added my three favorite things that should help you out with feeling like spring is really here (even if the weather doesn’t permit it).
The first thing is a little something to help you cheat without causing sun damage. I use this every night in the shower and it takes very little time (only three minutes!!!) After you wash and rinse, apply this evenly and you only need a thin layer. You can really make this bottle last a long time if you use it sparingly! You will notice some natural glow by your second time! In-Shower Tanning Lotion
This is my favorite lip color! Something about it makes your eyes pop, and I can honestly say it lasts awhile and gives you a good amount of moisture! My favorite shade is called “sorbet” Pink Lips
I love this top and I think it would make for the most precious beach pictures! It would be so cute with some khaki shorts or even a skirt. Beach Top
This shoot was seriously so much because I absolutely loved this blue wall!
Okay on to the real deal: This sweater is so lightweight and girly in all of the best ways. It’s short waisted so more power to pairing it with the best ever high waisted jeans and a good round toe bootie, or even tucked into a fun skirt with some over the knee boots. Caution: this sweater will make you feel like your floating on air! 😉
It’s true, you can’t just run into Target for one thing without completely getting distracted by all the cuteness along the way.
Here I’ve added my personal survival guide from Target that includes everything you could ever need and prevents you (maybe) from getting too overwhelmed by all of the goodies. With all of these items in your tool box (or closet), you’re sure to always be prepared at the apartment, dorm or home, or wherever when you’re on the go!
For the “uh-ohs” on that favorite winter white sweater of yours – let me just tell you, this little gel pen has saved me from all of my never-to-fail coffee spills, and it’s so easy just to use a gel pen without doing all of the work!: Stain Remover
For all of the times to be thankful when sweet friends and family don’t forget you on the special days – I have these and personally love the extra little gold flare: Thank You Letters
For writing down the extra thoughts, prayers requests and praises – I keep this beside my bed and journal at least a sentence every night or a Bible verse from my devotional: Journal for Extra Thoughts
For the times your dentist said “almost done” because you still have some plaque you forgot to floss away: Mint Floss
For the times you hate to feel that the cold weather has finally taken effect on your nose (or that chick flick that just made you cry and you don’t want to admit it): Go Wherever You Go Tissues
For the times you realize you can’t send that package until you cut and tape: Scissors & Tape
For the morning you wanted to cry while drinking your coffee that is almost as black as your soul (your morning soul that is): Sweet Creamer
For the times you hate yourself because you can’t just seem to make your coffee taste as good as it is at home: K-cup of Happiness
For clean teeth and the well-being of saving your teeth from… Just save it, you know what I mean. Organic 😉 toothpaste
For the sake of telling yourself you’re going to get your life together this year (I have the gold polka dot version of this – I love how it barely takes up any room): 2016 Day Planner
For telling yourself you will actually pay attention in meetings and lectures (these are pretty to look at and magically make your hand writing 10x better): 3 Subject Spiral & Magic Pens
For the days you don’t want lipstick on but need a little life in your lips (Love this x a million): lip gloss
For the days your shoes stink and you have too much static in your favorite dress: bounce sheets
For your extra dusty desk and your crumby counter-tops… Oh, and of course your dirty mirrors! (these wipes get all of the work done- I also use these to clean my lap top and phone): Pledge Multi Surface wipes
For your ashy elbows and legs (sorry I said it – this lotion works miracles for all of you sensitive to your razors): Lotion
If you’re starting to become tired of your everyday winter blacks and browns, this leopard with detail fringe is sure to add some hope for making the colder days a little less dull. These boots would be precious with a pair of black tights and a LBD, or your everyday look with rolled skinnies and a cute blouse. Trust me, these boots are sure to be comfy while adding a little height and a little extra sass! And the purse is the perfect bonus! (P.S. — the booties are half off!)
