Fall Favorites: Altuzarra for Target

Hello again, 3P beauties! I know it has been a while but if you are following me on Instagram or Facebook, you know I am still around and loving life.  While this first month of fall is already flying by, it still feels much like summer in my neck of the woods.  Of course, I am thankful for the sunshine, but at the same time I cannot wait for cool fall weather and the cozy sweaters, scarves, pumpkin lattes and fall leaves that are brought around with those cooler days.  And of course, Target has a great fall designer collaboration out for all of us to enjoy- here are a few of my favorites from the Altuzarra for Target collection.  Do you have any favorites you are eying or have you scored a new closet gem from this collection already?

1. This orchid print maxi dress is elegant in its simplicity and I can picture it dressed down with a jean jacket and boots, or up with a statement necklace and sparkly heels.

2. Paired with a pencil skirt or jeans, this orchid print sweatshirt would make your daily fall uniform come together in a fashionable snap.

3. In fall's hottest hue, this green python sweatshirt is the perfect fall addition to your wardrobe.

4. For an instant strong, stylish statement, layer this contrast-sleeve trench over your favorite fall frock.

5. Over-the-Knee Boots are not anything I have ever worn before, but these designer beauties at an approachable price are enticing.

6. I love a good peasant blouse for fall, and this rich plum number has detailing galore to enjoy- no necklace required.

7 denim shortalls under $100

One spring trend that is popping up everywhere?  Short denim overalls, or shortalls, if you will.  I am not 100% sold on this fashion fad recurrence (who else owned these and Birkenstocks in 4th-6th grade?), but sometimes these casual cool overalls entice this fashionista.  This post was actually inspired by a sweet friend's desire to find some cute overalls, so whether its you that is looking for a pair or if one of your friends is the one is search of some short overalls, here are 7 on-trend denim shortalls under $100.

3PbabyB yellow and gray nursery

To continue on the Mother's Day theme here on the blog this week, I am happy to share our 3P Baby B's nursery.  This room came together in a snap after a few months of planning, and I could not be happier with this space.  Most of the furniture in this room was kindly gifted by friends and family, but are great bargain investments from Target.  I nixed the idea of a changing table in favor of a dresser, which can be used by our daughter after she outgrows the nursery.  The gallery wall is one of everyone's favorite designs, and the DIY mobile I fashioned above he changing pad is one of 3P Baby B's favorite things to look at!  Yellow, white and silver were the color inspirations for this room, and that inspiration produced some dreamy results!  So if you are looking for a little yellow and gray nursery design inspiration, look no further!
This glider is perfection- the back is tall enough to rest your head against, and the armrests are the perfect height for holding my little baby as I rock her to sleep.

Love these DIY shelves my man built and installed in our baby's room.  Love talking to her about dreams and laughter everyday when I point out those decorations- I had these on hand and spray painted them silver, but you can find something similar here or here.

Totally love how this nursery gallery wall came together!

I made this little mobile with some leftover decorations from a 3PbabyB baby shower.

Everyone loves this adorable clock from my childhood room- find a similar one here.
