Sundry shared a list of things she’s bought lately that have made her happy, and I thought I’d follow suit here. You know, to demonstrate how I’m single-handedly stimulating the economy. Or Target’s economy, as it were.
Toddler Converse in Oxford Blue
On Wednesday, I had a hour to kill in between doctor appointments, so I decided to spend it at Target. BY MYSELF. Anyone with children will understand what a rare treat this was. Of course, I ended up buying something for my darling son. I just couldn’t resist these adorable navy blue low-tops. They’re about a size too big at the moment, and I’m sure lace-up shoes at his age will drive me nuts, but look:
So cute, right? And on clearance!
Springmaid Maura Comforter Set in Daffodil
A couple months ago, we decided to give our bedroom a mini-makeover. I fully intend to post before and after pictures, except that it’s still not quite done. But I will when it is! In the meantime, take a gander at our new bedding:
I’ve never been one to jump on any sort of style bandwagon, but I’ve been seeing a lot of rooms (and clothes) decorated in yellows and dark grays. Something about this color combination makes my heart sing, so when I saw this yellow-gold bedding at Crate & Barrel, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It was on sale, but it had to be ordered, and I waited too long, and the price went up. But then I found a similar set at Target for a lot less. I’ve paired it with very dark gray sheets (which complement our new wall color and IKEA furniture — more on that soon). It’s a fantastic combination of masculinity and femininity, even with the flowers. ‘Tis lovely, I think.
Gap Long & Lean Jeans
Old Navy Plaid Roll-Sleeve Camp Shirt
I don’t why I ever buy any other style of jeans when Gap’s Long & Leans are truly the best fit for my body. I wore the heck out of three different pairs over the last couple years, and sadly, all three are just about threadbare. So I splurged on them in a dark wash, which pair nicely with this breezy camp shirt in yellow. (See: I like yellow. A LOT.)
Ju-Ju-Be BeRich Wallet
Last week when I posted about the girth of my wallet, Nanette came to the rescue and suggested I try a slimmer, sleeker design by her company Ju-Ju-Be. I got my new BeRich in the mail a couple days ago, and already my canvas tote bag feels about five pounds lighter with this lovely number instead of my former leather monstrosity. (Probably didn’t hurt that I cleared out about a pound worth of pennies, too.)
Moleskine 2010 Weekly Notebook
I like pen-and-paper planners. I use this one. It’s got a weekly calendar on the left, and ruled space on the right for jotting down notes and lists. It also features an elastic belly band and a ribbon marker. Keeps me organized without all the bells and whistles of a digital organizer.
Tell me, what swoon-worthy items have you bought lately?
