things you need from, now

Happy Thursday, everyone. It's your favorite crazy Tar-jay lady back at it again with a blog all about things I'm loving right now at my go-to store. Last fall I shared '5 fab target finds for any fashionista' and it's definitely been a while since I hopped on here and chatted about everyone's favorite retailer (sorry, Walmart).

I always find myself a little too long-winded when it comes to talking about Targ, so let's just jump right in so you can start adding these items to your, now.

JoyLab Crewneck

I present to you: my favorite pre- and post-workout sweater that's also perfect for lounging and wearing literally whenever. This crewneck is so soft on the inside, not too heavy and cropped (if you want it to be). I personally own this sweater in the XL size because I love things a little oversized...I'd definitely say it runs small and the XL hits at the very top of my thigh. I love this sweater and Target was kind enough to give it to us in four different colors.

SUGARFIX Pearl Hoops

I adore these feminine pearl hoops, probably because they remind me of a pair I used to own that disappeared into thin air earlier this spring. Do I own these yet? No...however, I will likely own them eventually because they are timeless and frankly, cheap. I love Target's SUGARFIX by BaubleBar line for so many reasons, but mainly because of how great the jewelry quality is at a pretty good price.

Leopard Print Bikini

After wearing a one-piece bathing suit daily for pretty much all of my youth, it has become hard to find a two-piece suit that fits me comfortably. Because of that, I typically either A) try to find a cute one-piece to wear, or B) avoid swimming at all costs. I can honestly say that this suit changed the game for me. It's super high waisted and holds everything in — when I dove into the pool in this suit, the bottoms barely even came down. Moral of the story here is that this suit is perfect and will likely be a favorite for years to come.

Leopard Print Shorts

These shorts are, dare I say it, buttery soft. I hate when bloggers describe things as "buttery" — the way it makes me feel is comparable to the way some people feel when they hear the word 'moist'. However, I feel like it's a good descriptor for these shorts because they truly are so so soft and comfortable and great for sleeping/lounging. There's a matching sweater-top that goes with it too, if you're into that.

Wicker Chair

On to my home goods recommendations. I don't own this chair and it doesn't really go with my current decor style, but I think it's so cute and surprisingly inexpensive compared to other chairs I've seen like this one. I think it would look great as an accent chair in an office or a bedroom, and although it says it's an outdoor patio chair, reviewers suggest not leaving it outdoors, or at least covering it if there's a chance of rain. It's also on sale for $63!

Floral Quilt

Does anyone else think this quilt is so cute? I can imagine it in a girl's bedroom or a guest bedroom — I say as if I have any extra bedrooms to be decorating. I just think this quilt is so sweet, and there's plenty of Opalhouse decor pieces like wall art and prints that would pair perfectly with it.

Honorable mentions: Anything from the Studio McGee collaboration and the soon-arriving LoveShackFancy for Target line. I have my eye on this vase and framed art duo from Studio McGee, and I love these smocked and tiered dresses from the LoveShackFancy collab.
