Random Wednesday 2

Top: H&M | Pants: Target | Shoes: F21 | Bracelets: Lolabellas, Thirfted, F21 | Necklace:F21 | Earrings: Target

Here is another random Wednesday for you. Just me babbling about things on my mind and what's popped in my head this week.

1. Let's talk about these polka dot skinny jeans (not online yet). Thank you, Target, once again for providing us ladies affordable printed denim. I saw a similar pair at Anthropologie for $180. No way, no how was I going to spend that kind of money. I ran into Target last week to pick up some "necessities". Low and behold, if these didn't called my name all the way from the cleaning supplies aisle. I couldn't ignore them. That would have been rude.

2. PicMonkey. I use this FREE photo editing site for most of my photos. I decided to change up some of the colors and effects for these pictures. I typically leave the original coloring on all my photos, but they were looking kind of blah. Still not sure I like what I did with them, but it was fun playing around. I REALLY need to learn Photoshop. It's sad, I primarily do fashion posts and I have no clue how to use it. I need to quit being lazy and take some online tutorials, but PicMonkey is just soooooo much easier.

3. P!nk's new album, The Truth About Love, was released yesterday. She did it again. Ah-mazing!! It was on shuffle all day. She nailed the ballads and didn't leave out her gritty, I don't give a sh*t attitude. This girl is as real as they come. My faves from it are Beam Me Up, Try and Just Give Me a Reason. If you are any sort of P!nk fan, you will not be disappointed.

4. Lauren Conrad is coming out with a new book, Lauren Conrad Beauty. All her "secrets" will be available October 16th. I typically don't buy these sorts of books, but girlfriend has it going on. I am ready to learn her cat eye ways! If I have a girl crush on anyone; it's her. I may or may not have pre-ordered.

5. I am over at Sarah's blog today while she is visiting my great State of Texas! I am chatting about a few Forever 21 fundamentals. Go check it out and make sure you follow her! She is the BOMB.com!

I found some polka dot jeans too! American Eagle. LOVE! I sure wish we had an H&M.

Picmonkey rocks.

How do you get cuter and cuter everyday??! One day when you decide to wear sweat pants all day every day...I'm going to need you to put all your clothes online, and tell me about the sale before anyone else.

I use PicMonkey too!! (I think all your pics look great!)

LC has a new book?? I need to check it out!

Karen said...

I love love love this outfit! It's possibly one of my favorites! I need those jeans.

Rachel said...

That blouse is amazing! I love the patterns! And one of these days I'm going to have to get myself some polka dot jeans--I love that fashion, and I'm going to have to get them before the trend runs out so that I can wear them for years to come! ;P

Andrea {blonde ambitions} said...

I LOVE this top!! You always make me want to call in sick to work and run to the mall! :) I need to try PicMonkey! I didn't know about Lauren's new book, might need to check that out!

Kelly@LeafyNotBeefy said...

I really like the color scheme in these pictues - the bluish gray with the yellow!

I just found PicMonkey - love that it's so quick and easy! I'd love to learn Photoshop some day, but it's expensive and has a learning curve.

Found you from the GFC link up :)

Really like that shirt, and the way you styled it!
I want Lauren's book too, and although I am not usually a big Pink fan, I might have to try it out after all this buzz about it!

Head to Toe Chic said...

Love the polka dot pants!!! And I'm still obsessed with those wedges! I definitely want Lauren Conrad's book too :)

Please tell me you got that top at H&M recently.. i want it. I haven’t been over there in awhile, so if you tell me yes, I am going this afternoon, ha!

Love that top!!! It's looks so good on u!

Scribble-N-Dash said...

omg I JUST tried those pants on the other day & fell in love {must go back & get them!!}

I use PicMonkey too... Love me some photoshop but it's way more intense & difficult to use when I want to quickly edit a few photos!

LC is wonderful, I have her other Beauty book & can't wait for her next one! :)

Which Target brand makes those pants? I was in Target last night and didn't see them and I really like them. I know the exact pair of Current Elliott pants you're speaking of and I imagine the Target ones are a bit more economical.

Shanna, I love this entire outfit! Those polka dot pants are so cute. Will definitely need to check out PicMonkey... these photos are gorgeous!

LOVE the printed skinnies with the floral top!! And what a fabulous Target find! Also, I had no idea Lauren Conrad was coming out with a new book, so thanks for the heads up!

Landi {Freckled Confessions} said...

Okay, seriously?! This is maybe my favorite outfit on you thus far!! Love the mix of patterns and I LOVE where you took these photos... the shoes and the outline of the building work perfectly together!! That top is just precious! xo

Sarah said...

I have a polka dot chambray but I clearly need those pants to wear on the other days, ha!

Thanks again for guesting today!!

Lindsay said...

I was eyeing the ones at Anthro too! But I haven't seen these at Target yet! I'm gonna have to check it out! Apparently I am in love with all of your bottoms and I'm just gonna copy them!

SarahJane Miller said...

This outfit is gorgeous! I am in love with everything you are wearing. Great eye for fashion. I am never lucky at target.. I swear I never find anything cute there. I need to look more.

Makaila said...

you nailed it, as always! I love this. I would have NEVER thought to pair the two.. I learn from you every day mama! ;)

Pic Monkey. I'm still using Picasa. hahahhaa. and I am in the same boat. I MUST LEARN PHOTOSHOP! It is so obvious who does.. it just does amazing things to photos. BUT, it seems so daunting.

Always Maylee said...

Ahhh Shanna! You KNOW I love those pants. I almost bought them too, I was literally walking towards the register with them when I changed my mind. Don't ask me why because I don't really remember. Now I'm crying inside, haha. You look gorgeous girl!

xo, Yi-chia

Shea Sayers said...

Ooh those pants are from Target?! I love them, I might just have to hunt them down myself! And I'm with you all the way on PicMonkey--I love it, and it's so darn easy! I don't have photoshop either.

I just love how effortlessly you pull of the most random duds! Love the printed denim! You are rocking them, woman! And I'll have to try this PicMonkey you speak of. I use PhotoShop at work, but I love easy to use photo editors! Thanks for sharing!

I have a girl crush on Lauren too! I still call her LC...I should probably stop doing that.

Lindsay said...

You look A-MAZING as always!!! I love the way you edited! I might have to check out Lauren's new book. I just called her Lauren like we're on a first name basis or something.

Franziska said...

I love the coloring in these pictures. I've been using iPiccy to adjust my pictures a bit. I think it makes them look nicer! I would love to learn photoshop but it's so expensive!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Those pants are adorable! And I have a confession. I was so obsessed with The Hills and live here in LA so I totally pick restaurants that LC and the cast went to whenever I want to try a new place lol!

Well if you aren't just the most adorable thing in those polka dots! I'm heading to Tarjay, like NOW. (c: I can always count on Target to get me through! Love it!

I have the same shoes in leopard! Someone commented once that they look like flats from the front, and, I in fact thought your shoes were flats at first! hehe

Jeans and a Teacup said...

I LOVE this outfit! My favorite one of yours so far! I almost bought your whole outfit at one point but had already spent my budget for the month :-( How are the target pants holding up (the floral and polka dot)? I really want a pair but wasn't sure about the quality. But for around $22 I guess I can't expect too much! haha...
