Hello from New York! I’m here on business (for my “real” job) and side note: I’m staying in the cuuuutest hotel evs. It’s called Refinery. Highly recommend it. Sigh – I freaking love this city. It’s been awhile since I’ve been here. Couple years I think at least. And the best part about this trip is that husband is meeting me here Friday morning so that we can play for a weekend in NYC together! We’ve both been here separately but never together. So we decided to just make it happen! I’m pretty stoked. What the H should we do while we’re here? Suggestions are welcome.

K but can we talk about how is anyone still reading this blog? Or am I slowly but surely driving it into a dark, vacant corner of the internet where things go to die? Probs. The fact that I’m averaging about two posts per week if I’m lucky might have something to do with that. There are worse things than that though, right? Worse things than never posting on a blog? Worse things than losing every bit of traffic you ever had? Haha. Yeah I’m kind of already over it. Honestly guys it’s all just been a bit too much lately. And by lately I mostly mean this month. The month of March has darn near slayed me. Some time I’ll tell you about it… maybe… that is if I don’t get annoyed with myself while writing about it and decide to delete the whole thing. If I had a nickel for every time that has happened (and will happen in the future), yo I’d be livin’ large right about now! Is anyone with me there though? Do you ever find yourself writing (a blog post, a Facebook status, an Instagram caption) and suddenly feel like if you have to hear one more word come out of your mouth (or head, or keyboard), you’ll blow chunks everywhere? Cuz that’s how annoyed you feel with yourself? Don’t get me a wrong – I love me some social media, and to have a fashion blog we all know you have to be at least somewhat of a self-absorbed, attention-craving whoremonger… speaking only about myself when I say that, of course (whoa – def didn’t just mean to indirectly call every single fashion blogger in the world a whoremonger. NOT what I meant, ok guys?! Muh bad.). BUT, there’s a part of me that sometimes feels so nauseated by all of it. Ya know? Like does anyone really need to see this selfie of me right now? (Oh man – don’t even get me started on selfies. I have kind of strong feelings about them, mostly on the puke-double-puke loathing side of the feelings spectrum). And is anyone really that interested in the deep felt thought I’m about to post on the Facebook dot com? Ya know what I mean? Sometimes I just feel a little bit silly about it all. Buuuuut then I snap out of it and revert right back to my ‘me me me’ mentality and it’s all self-promoting, self-obsessed posts a GO! Haha. Old habits die hard I guess. Now how awkward do we feel about the fact that I just went on a 700 word tangent rampage? I feel awkward about it. I also feel awkward about how many words in this paragraph are italicized. Take it easy Shannon.

As for this outfit: I’m having a moment with all things blush right now – which is pretty original, if you didn’t know that. I don’t think I’ve seen a single other fashion blogger rocking this color yet. Hashtag trail blazer? Right guys? K but are YOU fans? Can I get an amen for the blush love?

If you’re still reading this:

a) thanks for hangin’ in. I really do heart you, whoever you are.

b) Have a Thrift Shop Thursday!

Target at Home

Thank you Target for sponsoring this post!

Happy Monday friends! Sooooo, I’m not sure if it’s common knowledge that I’m a lil’ bit obsessed with interior design. Yeppers. When husband and I first got married, we moved into this house in good ol’ Provo, Utah. It was old as can be and the size of a shoe box, but it had character – hard wood floors, high ceilings, crown molding everywhere, that kind of thing. Chase quickly discovered that having my own place to decorate unleashed a beast in me. An interior design obsessed beast. We’re talking hours and hours of pouring over design blogs and Pinterest and online shopping for things I thought would make our house a home. It took some time and energy to get it to where I wanted it, but I think Chase and I were both surprised at how affected we were by the final result. We had pulled something together that felt like a reflection of our personal style and that we could have a sense of pride in. It had such an impact on how we felt when we walked through our front door. And part of what shocked us too was that we had done it all on a tight, newlywed-college-student budget. And honestly? Target was responsible for so much of that. Lots and lots of things we used to pull our home together then were from Target. And we weren’t even mad about that.

Fast forward a few years: husband and I just moved. Yep! We’re out of the last place we were staying and into another. Lots of our furniture had been in storage, so it was time to pull it all out and remind myself of what we had to work with. While I still loved a lot of our old things, a new place equated to needing some new things in my mind. I needed a starting piece that could freshen things up without breaking the bank, and something that could help the room take shape so I’d have something to build off of. Something with high impact but low maintenance. I came across this adorable accent table and instantly fell in love. The color, the unique fretwork on the front, the size – I loved it all. And I love how even though we are still pulling together the rest of the design elements in the room and the rest of our place, this table makes a statement and helps things look a little more ‘done’. Accent tables are good for that. And Target is good for accent tables. K let’s be serious – Target is good for everything. It is legit one of my go-to’s for adorable yet affordable home decor.

So what do you think? Are you an accent table fan? Are you a home decor fan? We haven’t talked a ton about this on the blog you guys so I’m genuinely curious. What are your struggles when it comes to interior design? Let’s talk about it!

Find your style @Targetstyle.

 


Have a Mayhem Monday!

Outfit Details:

Jacket: Lou & Grey, c/o {buy here} | Tank: Gap, old | Jeans: Lulu’s {coveting these real bad} | Heels: H&M {similar} | Handbag: Kate Spade {similar} | Sunnies: Nordstrom {buy here} | Watch: Michael Kors {buy here} | Bracelets: Sweet n’ Spark, c/o {buy here} | Criss cross bracelet: TopShelf Style, c/o | Pearl necklace: Lulu’s | Insignia necklace: Bip & Bop, c/o

Let’s be serious – does anyone ever wake up and think ‘If I have effortless, sexy, I woke up like this Beach Wave hair today, I’m gonna be ticked.’  Mmmmyeah – I didn’t think so. And who said that beach waves can only work on the beach? I don’t know about you, but I’d take beach wave hair just about any time. Good thing TRESemme is rad and came out with their Perfectly (un)Done product line.You guys, I’m not gonna lie – when I first heard about this (like 6 days ago), I was a little skeptical. I feel like so many products profess to do something that, in the end, they just don’t really do, ya know? I checked out their products – things like ‘Perfectly (un)Done Sea Foam’ and ‘Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray’ – and thought ‘K, but Sea Salt Spray? What does that even mean? And is it really gonna make my hair look beachy?’ I had my doubts. You can imagine then how surprised I was when the combo of Perfectly (un)Done shampoo, conditioner, sea foam and sea salt spray lehhgitimately made my hair look and feel beachy. It worked! Jigga what? Yeah. You heard it here first. K maybe not first but you DID hear it here, and you guys – I’m not lyin! I actually kind of loved the stuff.

Here’s how I used the products:

  • Used TRESemme Perfectly (un)Done shampoo and conditioner. Both of which smell amaze-balls, btw. Not mad about that.
  • While my hair was still damp, I used the TRESemme Perfectly (un)Done Sea Foam. I did a dollop in my palm, rubbed it between both hands, then bent down and flipped my hair over my head to distribute the foam throughout my entire hair. I scrunched my hair as I distributed the product.
  • Next, I sprayed the Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray all over my still-damp hair, again scrunching as I went.
  • Then I let my hair air dry. This was mostly because I’m way too lazy to blow dry my hair these days. I feel like you could probs blow dry your hair at this point and the results would be the same, but don’t quote me on that.
  • Once my hair was dry, I used my regular old curling iron (an old, not-fancy-at-all 1 incher) to create loose waves. I tried not to wrap my hair around the barrel too many times, as I wanted the look to be wavy, not curly. I held the curling iron vertically and pointing downward, then wrapped my hair around the barrel one or two times, held it there for a sec or two, then released. Once released, I tugged that piece of hair down to loosen the look of the curl a bit.
  • Side note: it says on the products that if you already have naturally wavy hair, all you really need to do is scrunch – no curling necessary. My hair is basically stick straight so I couldn’t pull that off, but I was definitely wishing I had naturally wavy hair in that moment cuz I bet it would have looked uhhhhmazing.
  • And that was it! The result was what you’re seeing here – nothing super special or fancy, but definitely more ‘effortlessly wavy’ that what I feel it usually looks like when I curl it and leave it down. I mean, don’t mind my heinous roots, of course. I also liked how my hair felt and smelled – not super nasty and product heavy. Just lived-in. Beachy. Awesome. Friggin’ awesome.

The best part is that this look really can be worn pretty much anywhere, any time. We’ve seen it on celebrities walking the red carpet in evening gowns for goodness sake! And I def didn’t feel like I had to put on a beach-inspired outfit for this post to keep my hair from looking out of place. It seemed to go just fine with the work-ready ensemble you’re seeing here.

So there you have it! Final verdict: TRESemme’s Perfectly (un)Done line is not telling lies. The products are bomb and they actually create the look they’re professing to create. Totally worth trying out – espesh cuz on top of being rad they’re completely affordable. I got my products at Target and I think for all four of the items I tried, my total was under $25. Cha-Ching! For more hair inspiration and tutorials, visit www.youtube.com/TRESemme.

So what do you think guys? Are you feelin’ this look? Do you think you’ll try out the products? Fill me in!

Then have a Fantabulous Friday!

Happy Friday peeps! Teeeeeee Geeeeee Eyeeeeee Effffffffff!!! That was me reliving my high school cheerleading days and being inordinately excited about something. Go Lions! Do y’all have fun weekend plans? Do we feel weird about the fact that I sometimes bust out y’all like I’m a regular southerner even though I’ve never stepped foot anywhere near that part of the country even? Yep. I feel weird about that a little. Do you also feel weird that today’s post is just an Instagram roundup of recent Insta pics, and if you follow me on Insta you’ve already seen all of these? Are you feeling a little short-changed here? Welcome to ‘What the H can I post that would be quick and easy this Friday so that I get more than one post up on the blog this week?’ mentality. I’m afraid to say it’s taking over my life. But if you’re NOT following me on Instagram, then a) Hooray that these pics are all new to you! and b) You should RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW (insert ‘she’s doing that shameless-annoying-as-crap self promotion thing again’ eye roll). Links to most of the items in these pics are under the pics. And then the pics are under the pics and under the pics. Pics pics pics. How many times can I use that not-even-a-word in a sentence? I need a diet coke. 

Hope y’all (I did it again) have a fantabulous weekend! xoxo

Oh hi. My name is Shannon Willardson and sometimes I blog. You guys! Sorry I’ve been so M.I.A. lately! I unexpectedly had to fly home to Boise last weekend, and then I returned home to us being right smack-dab in the middle of a move. Ugggggggg. Is there anything worse than moving? Just shoot me now how bout.

On a more relevant note – how amaze balls are these white distressed jeans from Topshop? Are they not cute as can be cute? They’re also crazy comfy, believe it or not! So if you’ve been pining away for a pair of white jeans but haven’t been able to find any you love yet (aka this was ME for several months), I’d highly recommend giving these a try. And don’t even get me started on that there jacket. It’s from TopShelf Style, one of my fave boutiques ever. Yeah. They got it goin’ on.

I hope you’re all having a killer week so far! I am headed off to bed now, given that it’s 12:40 a.m. and I can’t keep my eyes open OR form complete sentences. Good night!

Have a ‘Wish a magic fairy would come put my house together so I wouldn’t have to do it’ Wednesday!

Instagram Roundup

March 3, 2015

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! Husband and I are right in the middle of moving, which equals wooooooof, right? Is there anything worse than moving? Ug – shoot me now. To add insult to injury, we’re moving into a shoe box in an effort to try to save as much as possible over the next year so that maybe, maaaaaybe we can buy a friggin’ house here in California before we’re 70 years old. Man alive. It’s beautiful as can be here, but boy do you pay for it.

Anyway, enough whining from me. Here’s what I been wearing lately on Instagram! If you’re not already following along, you should be! And if you wait a sec for the dang things to load, you can shop all of these looks below each pic. Happy shopping!

I had the opportunity to team up with Lou & Grey – one of the sister brands to Ann Taylor and Loft. You guys – how did I not know about this brand sooner? Have I been living under a rock?! It’s sooooo good! Such good stuff. Baby Jack and I were asked to come take a look at their brand new store location in nearby San Jose. What ensued was what I would describe as the full shopping experience: beautiful store, beyond-lovely and helpful sales people, and most importantly, beeeeeautiful merchandise. If you love yourself some classic, high-quality neutrals, Lou & Grey is your place. I walked out of the store with this classic, comfy, striped (#winning!) sweatshirt and these on-trend gray jeans you’re seeing in these pics plus these jeans (also ridiculously comfy), this adorable jacket, and this fail-proof classic tee. But don’t worry that if I could have, I basically would have bought the entire store. You can shop the rest of my favorites below. And if you’re in the Bay Area, be sure to go check out Lou & Grey’s new location at Santana Row. You won’t even regret it. Not even a little bit.

One of my favorite things to do with this little family of mine is to go on walks. The weather here in the Bay Area has been heavenly lately, so we’ve been busting out the stroller and our walkin’ digs and hitting the park! Just so we’re clear, the intended purpose of this post is not to make you wildly jealous if you’re one of those poor, unfortunate souls living somewhere freezing in the world right now. Buuuuuuut let’s be serious – you should probs be jealous. It’s basically spring over here already! And we’re loving every minute of it. We’re also loving all the adorable, spring-ready things Old Navy has in the store right now. With a focus on laid back pieces that can be easily layered, I was definitely able to stock up on spring-worthy items. And as always, the bonus about shopping at Old Navy is that there is always a sale goin’ on. Right now it’s all jeans and all shirts. Woot! Happy shopping!

Special thanks to Old Navy for sponsoring this post!  

Hope you have a Wanderlust Wednesday!

Just a quick little outfit post today, with all the trappings of a solid amateur blogger: fuzzy images, pics taken in the backyard because we were too lazy to go anywhere more legit, too much editing because in reality my face looked like barf that day, not a single pic of me standing in front of the Lincoln Center freezing my arse off in some super hawt NYFW worthy ensemb because let’s be serious – my trash didn’t get invited to a single show (haha). The works people! Just don’t want to keep anyone guessing about the status of good ol’ GBO here. People don’t like change, so I’m here to confirm that I’m pretty committed to staying firmly planted in the soil of fashion blogger mediocrity. Don’t you worry.

Most of this outfit is old stuff from good ol’ Target. However, I did want to show you that red little number slung over my body there — new Kate Spade as a birthday present from husband. You better believe I put-out for that one. Sorry I just said that. I’m also a lil’ bit in love with this one and this one which are similar to the bag husband got me. Love me some Kate! Per the usual, you can shop this entire ensemb (or items similar to what I’m wearing) at the bottom of the post. And probs you’re going to want to check out that last pic, because hulloh?! (follow me on Instagram for more where that came from!)

Oh – one last thing: Thanks to everyone who came out to the TopShelf event last Thursday! It was so fun to meet some of you. You guys – I’m serious. I loved it so much. Ya know what I realized? I’m like 99.9% positive that it’s a thing for people to come to an event that a blogger hosts without ever actually coming up and talking to the blogger. I mean, if you feel no desire to talk to them, that’s one thing. But so help me if you’re not doing it because you’re worried you’ll seem like a creep, stop it right now! I was so happy that people came up and said hello at the event and asked about Baby Jack and talked with me about whatever else. Meeting you guys is the best part of this dang job (or whatever we call it)! And I wasn’t even slightly creeped out. So if you’re not in the habit of actually going and introducing yourself when you attend blogger-hosted events, I command you to start! And thank you again if you came. xoxo

Happy Hump Day guys! How’s your week been so far? K, call this combo tired and overdone (as in you just posted an outfit that looks almost identical to this Shannon – cool.) – I don’t even currrrrrrrr! I love me a tried and true classic, and black and red for Valentine’s Day is just that. So here it is again! Mostly I just really wanted to show off this amaaaaazing coat that I recently got from Ruche. I didn’t have a ‘formal’ looking coat in my closet, and this one was just too fabulous to pass up. I have to tell you though guys – I wish I would have been wearing these heels with this outfit. That was the intention, and then like an idiot I forgot to bring them to the photo shoot. Dummmmmm! Sad day in the USA. Don’t get me wrong – I love these Chinese Laundry beauts too {also worn here}, but the Betsy Johnsons? I mean, does it get any better than that?

Side note: I may or may not have recently purchased these, and hey, I’m just gonna tell you – they are even more amazing in person. A bit of a splurge, but hashtag worth it! Oh, and another recent purchase (I’ve been out of control lately) – these – are 25% off right now. Woot!

So, what are YOU wearing for Valentine’s Day this year?
