TOMS for Target

Stylish and charitable - I adore the new Target collaboration!

On Nov. 16, Target and TOMS launched their line. I was stoked to go that morning, but life (and my life right now is cleaning and organizing) got in the way. Monday at lunch was when I was able to check it out.

For each item bought, a week of meals, a blanket, or shoes will be donated to someone in need. How could you possibly say no? It's like donating to charity and getting something great for free!

The hoodies are beautiful, but I just don't need another hoodie in my life right now. If you're in the market for one, you should definitely check them out! I tried on the lighter poncho but like every other poncho, it seemed to overwhelm me. If I can find the darker one at another store, I'll try it on. TOMS shoes are so cute, but they are always too wide for me. I love the black shiny ones from this collection!

Here's the link to the full collection:

I ended up choosing a pretty, casual, but feminine tee (shown below) that has rose gold lettering. For $16 and the charitable donation, it was a total steal. Since it was for charity, I'm not counting it towards my clothing budget for the quarter.

Hurry to Target before this collection disappears!

On the Porch

Before our house was done (we've been moved in for two weeks now), we stopped by almost every day to see how things on the exterior were going. I was excited when the front porch was added - it turned out bigger than we expected!

Vest: Smart Set
Shirt and Jeans: Gap
Boots: Aldo

I can see this front porch being a backdrop for many future blog posts. We've been really busy trying to get everything settled from the move. The room that is taking the most time to organize is definitely the master closet! I keep moving things around and still need to find "homes" for most of my accessories and jewellery. Does anyone have any idea on where to put tank tops? They seem like a waste of space to hang...

I'm With Scary

The day after the wedding, we went for lunch with both sets of parents at The Yardhouse, an awesome restaurant at The Linq. Along the way, we stopped to get up close with a few of the creatures that were out for pre-Halloween.

Tank: Gap
Skirt: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target
Sandals: Top Shop
Bag and Sunnies: Coach

We're still sifting through boxes from the big move, but feeling more settled as each day passes. Soon, I'll share some photos of the house and our master closet (my special spot). Have a wonderful weekend!

Sprinkles and Staircases

It was my second trip to Vegas- you'd think I'd know better. I brought two pair of high heels and wore them for a combined total of about two hours. Heels that can stand the test of a Halifax night out will not usually stand up to a Vegas night out - no matter how great they are. Flats are always the answer unless cabs are involved. These became my "dress shoes" - LOL. At least they're leather.

Blazer: Ann Taylor
Shirt: Dynamite
Jeans: Gap
Sneakers: Converse
Bag: Danier
Bracelet: Stella & Dot

Another thing that was a bit of a waste of suitcase space was my Canon camera. I did use it a bit, but it's too big to take out to dinner and for walking the Strip, so most of my outfit shots are with my phone's camera (i.e - crappy quality). We had some wedding photos taken on these stairs - can't wait to see them!

Las Vegas now has a Sprinkles - the same cupcake store that is famous in LA. On our last night we had chocolate cake from our reception venue and then bought cupcakes to have for breakfast the next day. 

R's was chocolate (no surprise) and I tried the double cinnamon. It was delicious!
