Style: embellished pearls

Embellished pearls |

Pearls may be considered matronly but today’s designs have turned it into a must have for the hip and modern girl. A little embellishment adds some fun details to an otherwise plain piece. Paired with the right pieces, it can add dimension and texture for a stylish look.


1. Grey denim pearl embellished skirt

2. Peter pan collar pearl black dress {only $21}

3. Olive green puffer sleeve dress {58% off}

4. Ankle crop jeans with pearl buttons {under $30 & 2 colors}

5. Black distressed step hem jeans with pearl embellishment {under $30}

6. Black bell sleeve shirt {under $25}

7. Blazer mini dress with pearl buttons {4 colors}

8. Pearl strap sandals
{40% off & 2 colors}

Home decor: looks expensive but isn’t (Target finds)

home, inspiration comment

Home decor that looks expensive but isn't!  |

Home construction is never any fun especially when you’re anxiously waiting to live in it! We’re doing renovations on our home – it’s been a long road going from paper to reality – but there is light at the end of the tunnel. We’re starting to pick out the things like cabinets, vanities, finishes. But, for me, the real fun stuff is really the decorating. I’ve been starting to browse around and have been impressed with the home items Target carries and how higher end they look. I’m starting to put together some inspiration boards but wanted to share with you some noteworthy finds. With the exception of the chairs, everything is under $100 (can you believe it?!).


1. Tripod floor light

2. Nickel ceiling light

3. Square wood/bone mirror

4. Indoor planter and stand

5. Grey tapered leg chair {4 colors}

6. Acrylic tray

7. Gold pitcher {perfect for drinks or as a flower vase}

8. Tuft chair {2 colors}

9. White peg-leg table
