The Power of Target

A little sidenote, before you read about my thoughts on Target (below)...
I like to wear my hair up in the summertime because frankly, I've learned through experience that 90 degrees and thick, wavy hair do. NOT. MIX.
High, curly ponytails and statement earrings are my favorite combo when I'm trying to keep things simple. I've been to the pool a couple of times twice, and have gotten fairly tan, for the most part. But then again, I also tan very easily. I've already made plans to lay out by the pool most of next week, but neon pieces and white are two colors that really help contribute to showing off that tan.

Funny story about this scarf.
I was in Target shopping for bathing suits, and in the next aisle, this bright, neon scarf caught my eye. For starters, all of us Target shoppers know for a fact that no one really goes to Target looking for one particular item, and walks out empty-handed. After many attempts that ended up as miserable failures, I've come to the conclusion that Target has that mysterious mind power over us that forces us to grab everything we see on sight, wrestle with the idea that we need it, want it, must have it, because how could anyone ever give up a deal like this?, and my wallet will forgive me eventually, type of mindset. And then, we end up leaving with way more than we expected. Sums it up. And I can rant about Target adventures all day, but I can save those for another blog post. HA.

So yeah. That's my Target theory.

  1. I have naturally curly hair and I totally feel your pain. Summertime is amazing, but humidity totally makes my natural curl want to shine through. Ha! I love this bright outfit and totally feel your pain on excursions to Target. I've never left there with just what I originally intended to buy.

  2. Could not have said it better myself! I always get "jedi mind tricked" when stepping foot in there! Haha.

    I totally agree with your Target theory, I always leave with more than I intended too! Love this look, the pops of neon are my favorite!


  9. Loving the all white look with the pop of color in your scarf and shoes! I agree, Target can be dangerous. I always go in with a budget and spend triple that amount.
