It's time for another Friday Favorites! It's been a while since I've done one and I've done a bit of shopping lately (generally thanks to the move) so it's time to talk about what I've been loving this last week.

Target is amazing. I can't even with some of the stuff they've come out with recently. A New Day, Project 62, and just generally the revamp they're doing has been spot on. I just got an embroidered sweater (that I cannot find online), amazing shoes (which are also not online) and look for an edit on Project 62 shortly.

Brian has a super athletic build (aka big butt, thighs, and shoulders) and has a hard time fitting into all the slim fit apparel out for men right now. We've run into this issue with suits, shirts, and now jeans. So after my dear husband complained about his new-er jeans being a bit tight in the tush, I spent some time researching and found out that Levi's actually make an athletic fit jean specifically for those guys out there with this issue. Ordered two pair, and I'll let you know how they do. 

I went to a friends house with Adalae and she let me try her in her swing. Oh man, it's the best thing...ever. I ordered this one from Buy Buy Baby and can't wait until it gets here. 

FYI: Target sells 6ft lighting cables for $25. I found these 10ft ones on Amazon for $12. 

Because we're staying with my parents while we get a house and stuff, we've been spending a lot of time with them. My mother insisted that I visit the old feed mill as it had been recently renovated. I was actually pretty impressed. Not only did I find this cute vest (similar) from Carhartt (I know, right?) but they also stock Sota Clothing which is a Minnesota-centric brand that I love. So great.

And that's it! That's what I've been loving lately. Have anything I need to know about? Tell me in the comments below!

PS J.Crew makes athletic-build suits, and have you looked at Wrangler's lately? I was surprised...

  1. My husband has the same problem with jeans. I will pass the info on the Levi's to him. Thank you!

    1. Please do! FYI: These did NOT work for my husband, we both found the pockets a bit odd, but maybe they'll work for your hubby!

  2. The stuff from A New Day is all so cute!! I've been good in Target recently, so it's only a matter of time until that luck runs out and I bring home all.the.things.

    1. Every.Single.Time I'm in Target I look and find something else I 'need'. Between this and Project 62 Target is taking all my money for the foreseeable future.


High five!
