My Life Outfits

My new basics and a confession…

I found these fringe boots and pink pants at Target the other day and
I have worn them pretty much every single day since. I thought it strange that boots with that much personality and pink pants would go with everything I own but maybe I just think they do…either way I’m happy with Target about now!

On what I now call “Black Thursday Evening” I may or may not have turned into a full fledged sale crazed mom….who  jumped on a bunch of other crazed moms in a McQueen/Mater grabbing mosh pit. As I walked toward checkout with a my 2, $2.50 spoils (regularly like 14 bucks) I felt a mixture of excitement and shame. I now know my dignity is for sale for just shy of 12 dollars. I would have thought it was worth a lot more than that. So that’s sad…
but man, I LOVE a good sale.

PS What the heck happened with the contest last week!? 4 GIVEAWAYS!? I know there are more gals out there that want these joyous gifts! I wrestled at least 30 of you for something we had to PAY FOR! so enter by midnight to night if you want in, the only thing better than a good deal is a giveaway.

    I love the pink pants…they are a really soft shade and they look great on you! The boots are SO cute, too! Target really has some cute clothes.

    I didn’t hit Black Friday but it’s Cyber Monday and that’s good enough for me! Have a great day, Cara!

    So I went to target today and attempted to try the pink pants but holy moly are they obscenely small! Definitely not correct woman sizing at all!

    I bought these same pants! And I tried contouring for the first time ever after seeing your blog. It’s awesome to find a blog by someone so relatable & friendly, with clear, easy-to-do tips & tricks and promoted products that everyone can afford & benefit from. Keep it up! 🙂
