My Picks From Target’s New Denim Line

When I heard Target dropped a new denim line, Universal Thread, that’s basically a budget-friendly Madewell alternative, I was ALL IN. I rounded up my favorite pieces from the size-inclusive collection of everyday basics, most of which are under $30!

Performance Denim Leggings

  I bought these LOFT Performance Denim Leggings during the Black Friday sale, and I’m wearing them on repeat this winter. They’re the best of both worlds between a legging and a skinny jean, with just enough stretch to hold their shape while giving a super comfortable, yoga pant feel. (Hence the reason I keep pulling them on day after day.) These denim leggings have a mid-rise that sits right on top of the hips. I bought…

#OOTD: Sleeveless Denim Dress

I bought this Olive + Oak sleeveless denim dress at m.marie on Saturday. I threw it on to go to my favorite 3 year old’s birthday party yesterday, and loved it so much I gave it an encore today. I’m still carrying my Vince Camuto striped tote as an everyday carryall; it holds all the junk I think I need to schlep around every day, and makes me feel like I’m heading to the pool instead…

My New Favorite Jeans?

I’m kind of loving the “mom jean” trend. I’m all about a higher rise and easy relaxed fit: more room for wine and burritos. I’ve been eyeing the ASOS ‘Farleigh’ jeans ever since Sydney started wearing them on her blog, but I don’t know if I can pull them off (I also heard you have to unbutton them to sit down, and that’s just a deal-breaker). These LOFT distressed straight crops jeans may be the next best…

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
