I like this printed pants/jean trend, but I wasn’t sure about having big daisies or sunflowers accentuate my bum.  What girl really wants that, right?  And let’s be honest, how long do you foresee this floral jean trend lasting?  Not long enough for me to spend oodles of my dough on one pair.  That’s why Tar-jay (Target) is a girl on a budgets best friend.  This pair is surprisingly comfortable, has a good fit and the floral pattern was just right.  I’m looking forward to pairing these with some chunky knits and wedged oxford’s in the fall.  Looks like I found a good deal and my little buddy agrees too!

TIP: Want to give flowers a try, but aren’t sure?  Finding smaller sized prints can help  with fussiness or try a monotone pair!

I wasn’t a big fan of the heart sweater craze but then Gigi of Gigi’s Gone Shopping found this one and I caved.  I’m not sure if it’s the bright colors or the side placement of the heart, but I just love it.  It was also a good deal at Target, so of course one doesn’t feel so bad purchasing another sweater.  I need another sweater as much as I need a third eyebrow or unlimited credit.  Both are totally unnecessary and unwarranted.  But I digress, back to my love for said sweater, this cutie will be great with jeans and leopard shoes, plaids, white jeans, the sky is the limit!  Check out another lovely blogger, Tat from Two Wheelers style her heart sweater here.  Are you in love yet?  Have you recently fallen in love with an item?  Please share!

P.S. Just wanted to share the love and say thank you for all the support you have given me and my blog!  All of your comments truly lift my spirit and help me carry on, so thank you!

I feel like Gwen Stefani might want to be friends with me in this outfit.  I’m feeling the rocker chic vibe right now and sporting a red lip; it’s a subtle red, but make no mistake, my lips are red.  We also share another commonality in being Italian-American women, holla!  This sh!*t is bananas, how can we not be besties???  There are so many ways to style this cheetah print skirt: up, down, classy and the Gwen way.  A punchy red lip, some rocker accessories, mix in a few boyish duds and you are Gwenified!  I was able to see No Doubt perform here in Atlanta, it was awesome.  She never stopped moving and even brought one of her biggest fans on stage and took a picture with them in the middle of the show!  I loved that she was so sweet and so gorgeous, not to mention super talented!

P.S.  See my pins of the lovely and talented Gwen Stefani here!  Enjoy and thank you for stopping by, loves!
