Yes, Please: Target

If you’re like me, you go into Target with a list in hand, and walk out with a whole lot more than what was on your list!  We’ll call it a blessing and a curse ;)

There are times when I’m in a hurry and I can get in and out with mostly just the things on my list.  I love seeing what other people buy, so I thought you might, too!

pink cardigan

I have this cocoon cardigan and love it!  It runs a little large – I have a an XS and it’s roomy.  The pink is the prettiest blush color and super flattering.

Now on to the homegoods…

black herringbone wrapping paper

I grabbed a roll of this Hearth & Hand black herringbone wrapping paper after Christmas and love that I can also use it year round!  It definitely worked well with my Christmas decor this year, but it could be great for birthdays as well with just a few bright pompoms on top!

stoneware pitcher

This simple stoneware pitcher was under the tree for me this year.  There’s a good chance I bought it for myself…  I’ve been keeping it in the middle of our dining table, holding a few eucalyptus branches (sprigs?).  Its simple and modern, and just really pretty at a great price!

As you may know, we’re in a rental until we build our next home (more on that later).  I have put off  updating anything in this house for so long because its temporary and I’d rather wait until we’re in the next house before I purchase anything home-y.  Then I decided that was stupid.  I have been completely uninspired living here, and have decided after 2 years, I am finally going to do something about it!  Our bathrooms (we have 2 identical ones – upstairs and downstairs), are blah and boring, and our old, dingy towels and bath mats weren’t doing them any favors.  So off to Target I went.

target bath rug For my bathroom, that I share with Sean and Silas, I went with this bath mat (above).  I just read a review (I bought it in store, and we’ve already used it) that said the grey bleeds quite a bit into the white – darn!  I’ll try to wash it in cold and see how it does…

We already had these dark grey towels and a white shower curtain.

For the girls’ bathroom, which is also the main bathroom in the house, I went with something a little sweeter and softer.

pink and white bath mat

I chose this bath mat.  Unfortunately, its fluffier than our last bath mat and doesn’t fit under the door that opens on to it – grrr!  So it looks like I have another project to add to my list: trim the bottom of bathroom door.

macrame shower curtain

And this shower curtain.  The macrame details are even prettier in person!

My mother-in-law just gave us new white towels, so they are going in the girls’ bathroom for now.  I plan on painting both bathrooms soon because the pale lemon-lime that they are now is killing me slowly. #deathbybadwallcolor

pink pillow

pink tassel pillow

I also got a couple new pillows for our couches (here and here).  Clearing the house of all the sparkly Christmas decor leaves the space feeling a bit blah, and adding in a couple pillows with a bit of color did the trick!

wool area rug

I also just ordered this rug for our living room, and I’ll let you know if it works out!

So what’s your favorite find at Target lately?  Are you more of an in-store shopper or online?

    Love your purchases! FYI: Use Shout Color Catchers when you wash your gray and white bath mat. You can find them in your supermarket with the laundry detergent.) They’ll take care of any running of the colors. Quilters use them all the time when washing their quilts. They’ve saved me MANY times! Can’t wait to watch you build your new home!
