Loving Life With My Favorite Target Shoes

It's no secret I love Target, they have really stepped up their game, especially when it comes to their shoes.  From booties to sneakers to a formal heel, you can truly find any type of shoe for any event all while picking up toilet paper and a bottle of wine . . . you know the necessities.  What I love the most if they have started to carry shoes in wide widths!  Target also started something new for their shoppers, Target Circle offers, which is similar to Carwheel with some added benefits.  I'm still learning about all of the benefits to this feature, but I do know you get 1% back on most purchases.  No, I'm not a Target Influencer, but if they asked I for sure wouldn't turn it down.
So ending tomorrow they are offering 20% off clothing, shoes and accessories!  The best part is, you used to only be able to use Cartwheel offers through in store purchases and pick up purchases, but this new Target Circle offer includes online orders (don't worry I tested it.)  Why…

Loving Life Saving & Splurging-Black Leggings

One pair of leggings that has been tried and true for years now has been my Zella "Live In Leggings."  I've been wearing them for almost 10 years now.  No, not the same pair, this isn't Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.  But the pairs I've owned and lived in have lasted several years.  I was excited to learn they also had a brand at Nordstrom Rack called Z by Zella.  So here is the comparison in this week's Saving & Spluring-Black Leggings.

Z by Zella High Waist Daily Legging
I have always loved Zella leggings, so when I found out they had a brand at Nordstrom Rack I had to try them.  I bought a space dye pair (Space Dye Leggings: and really did like them.  From reviews I order a size up and I'm glad I did.  The material is on the thinner side and since the space dye pattern was black, grey and white I had to make sure I wore nude or white knickers, but they were light weight (which I enjoyed) and super comfortable, e…

Loving Life #OOTD-September 23-29

Sunday Funday!  This last weekend was full and flew by!  I keep waiting for life to slow down, but I don't think that is a real thing.  So I am trying to find the moments and make memories where my family has nothing planned, but being together.  This was not this weekend, ha ha!  There's always the next one.  Most of my outfit are items I've had for years, but the boots and jacket are in stock!  These boots are seriously my favorite and are the first boot I've found that really fits Bertha (bonus they come in wide widths!!)

Starting the new school years has brought so many changes to my kid's lives.  It has been kind of a rough start emotionally.  For a long time I struggled finding a parenting expert that really spoke my idea of parenting.  Last year my some sort of miracle I stumbled upon my spirit parenting expert (is that a thing?)  One of his main ideas is to get kids (and yourself) out into nature.  Being surrounded by the earth's beauty can be so peace…

Loving Life Saving And Splurging-Camo Leggings

There really is no way to camouflage Bertha, but camo leggings sure make her look good!  Last year I discovered Target had a pair, I bought them and they instantly became a favorite of mine.  I would wear them with a sweatshirt and sneakers and also a black tunic and booties.  Pretty much if I can get away with wearing leggings I WILL!

Save: Wild Fable Faux Leather Leggings-Olive,Green,Gray,Black/Gray &
Plus Sizes-Gray,Black
These are a soft and stretchy cotton that hold up and don't stretch out where you don't want them to.  For an inexpensive leggings these are wonderful, my pair help up for over a year.  The only reason I had to say goodbye was because Bertha wore a hole on the inside seam that couldn't be repaired.  I for sure thought I got my money's worth and am hoping to purchase a new pair . . . my only decision-what color?

Splurge: SPANX Look At Me Now Seamless Leggings (Regular & Plus Sizes)
I don't this specific pair, but I love all SPANX!  They fi…

Loving Life Saying Goodbye to Franco Sarto Flats

Today I say goodbye to my first fancy flats I found for Berth, the The Franco Sarto Simona Flat.  I couldn't find them in a store, but you can still find pairs on Poshmark.  I sized up two sizes since they weren't a wide width.  I loved them, because the top of the shoe (very technical terms I know) came over my trouble spot on Bertha where fluid can collect into a ball without a whole shoes covering the top of my foot.

They have just been sitting in my closet not worn for a while, but I haven't been able to take the plunge and get rid of them.  Recently I watch Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, she does something when she gets rid of an item, she thanks it.  At first I laughed at this, but in secret I tried it one day on a top I knew I needed to say fare-long to.  It's embarrassing, but I am super sentimental about my clothes.  I always tie a memory to it, which is why I still have my old, too small, faded hoodie I wore in the hospital when I had my son.  Well for the top …

Loving Life #OOTD Sept 12-22

Well I have a lot of outfits to cover! Links to everything I am wearing will be under each picture. I'll start with my "Mom Power Suit."  Again my Faux Leather Leggings and my favorite top that I stock up on when they come one sale for $5, I size up to have more of a tunic length and again my versatile sneakers I talked about in the outfit above.  My Mom Bag I never leave without and this cute and comfy sweater.  I love leopard!  Also my $25 wide width sneakers, also featured in another look.

This is my "Mom on the go" look or better yet my "Hat Day, because I really need to wash my hair look."  Either way it's my comfy outfit I wear far too often.  I've been living in these Faux Leather Leggings by SPANX, they have a high waist and are SPANX, so it helps with my Mom tummy.  These leggings come in a several colors and right now a few of them are on sale on  And of course my go to Nike Frees. This picture snapped by my daughter is …

Loving Life Saving And Splurging-Slip On Sneakers

Hello! I'm starting a new Blog Post I am hoping to post weekly to biweekly . . . ok maybe monthly, we'll see how it goes.  It's going to feature 2 items that are similar one is a "save" and the other is a "splurge." I love a good deal, but I also know that sometimes it pays in the long run to invest in a quality shoe or piece of clothing, especially if you're going to wear it over and over. My wardrobe is pretty 50/50 of save and splurge items.  White t-shirts, although I may wear and wash them a lot, I also know that don't stay white long and go for my $5 find on most t-shirts.  Jeans and shoes though I might spend more one. 1. It can be difficult to find jeans and shoes for Bertha, so when I do, I don't mind spending a little more. 2. Bertha can be rough on my pants and shoes, so quality can be key.

Just in the past few years I've noticed there have been more fashionable options for wide width shoes.  If you follow me, you know I'm…
