Easter Target Haul

So this weekend I went to Target and got some fun things for Easter, a couple clothing pieces, and a new laundry basket, so I decided to share them, because I LOVE Target and hopefully you do too!!
The first thing I got for Easter was these bunny ears for Sam! You can find these here.
 Also for some Easter decor I got this pretty pink lantern and this matching pink dish! I thought they were perfect for Spring!
I got this perfect laundry basket, which was also in my Closet Tour, you can find this basket here.
I also needed a pair of dress pants for this teacher shadowing day I was doing so I found the perfect comfortable black dress pants.
And finally I got this cute flowy navy top, you can find it here.

Closet Tour

Here is an overview of my closet.. on the right door I have a command hook with my Vera leather wallet crossbody which you can find here. In the top of my closet I have two shelves which have bins of all kinds of random things...the pink bins are from Target.
On the right side I have a command hooks to keep all of my big sweaters that are impossible to hang.
I have a hook on the inside of my closet on the left to hold my belts.

I organize my clothes from jackets to vests to sweaters to collared shirts to long sleeves to short sleeves to no sleeves to pants + skirts to long sleeve dress to short sleeve dresses to no sleeve dresses to maxi dresses and maxi skirts.

I use all of the same colored velvet hangers, this makes my closet look much more organized with them all the same, I got these from HomeGoods.

 I got these shelves from amazon (you can find them here). I use them to store all of my scarves, my sneakers, my files and some other random things.

Winter Break Haul

Image
Over Winter Break I went to Boston and also went to the mall and did some shopping so I decided to share my purchases.
While I was in Boston I got these two shirts, yes very touristy.
This is what I got from Target...I'm trying to take more vitamins and needed some other random stuff. I also found this cute ribbon like stuff on clearance and had to get it!

I went to Bath and Body Works where all of their Aromatherapy line was 50% off!! So I got two bath things and a lotion.

I really needed new BB cream, because I have gotten very pale and my other Clinique Acne Solutions BB cream was way too dark.


Finally, I went to Vera Bradley and I got this really cute travel case in one of their new patterns and I just got this to go in my backpack.
