Free People Alternative


Like a lot of folks I love the look of clothing from Free People. It greatly appeals to my aesthetic, but not so much my wallet. I love the idea of buying one piece I love as opposed to a bunch of pieces because they are inexpensive, but let's face it; for most of us thinking about the budget is always going to be how it is, and that goes double if you have a family.

That is why I was so excited when my local Target expanded the section with their Knox Rose line. It has the same easy, bohemian chic feel of FP, but for a fraction of the price. I picked up the amazing dress above last night; the original price is $29.99, which is great, but it is currently on sale for $23.99 which is even better! It is so comfortable and can be dressed up or dressed down. Today I paired it with my favorite hat and my Forever 21 sandal booties for a comfortable but still stylish look while I run errands and go about the business of my day. I am wearing an XXL; for the record I wear a size 16/18.

So while FP can still be in your pocket for sales or treats, don't sleep on the Knox Rose line! I know that I will be making many more purchases from it that I will share with you all. <3

Day Out With PinkBlush!

Today turned out to be an unexpectedly beautiful day in Charlotte. I’d already planned to take my oldest out to buy some books (he found a forgotten gift card he wanted to use) but we also decided to go to the South End neighborhood to see the Confetti Hearts Wallthat wasRead more >


An Artist Finds Their Medium

Make-up and beauty products are something that have always interested me but I always somehow felt like I needed to downplay it or hide it from people. I grew up in such a way that either you were ‘pretty’ or you were ‘smart’. I wanted to be seen as smartRead more >


My Favorite Valentine

A lot of folks don’t believe me when I tell them, but Valentine’s Day is my husband’s favorite holiday. If you knew Sean really well, you would completely understand why this makes sense. He is very sentimental and simply loves love. He also loves anything with hearts and anything cute.Read more >


An Overalls Body

Yesterday I was walking around Target with the littles picking up some things, and since they were in a super good mood I decided to go ahead and try on a few items that I have had my eye on. You really have to hit it just right when youRead more >
