I've been shopping GoJane for-evah. Ever since my gf and sorority sister Kristin of Love & Pugs turned me onto them. They have super cute dresses, accessories and especially shoes at such amazing prices, I check out their site almost weekly for new items. All of their pieces are high quality, I've ordered everything from lightweight dresses for weddings, to club dresses for Vegas and lots and lots of shoes. I've been happy with every purchase I've ever made there. Anytime someone asks me where to look for something GoJane is always one site I refer them too. Just ask my girls at Life is Reed-iculous and Everything According to Erin, they shop there too.
GoJane was so generous and gifted me with this gorgeous dress, I wore it to a party and plan on wearing it to some showers and weddings this summer. It's so super comfy and the fabric is so soft. I'm constantly complimented on it.

Here are some of my favorites from their site right now:

Love. I'm in love with those spike sandals, so super cute. All of their shoes run pretty true to size. I'm always between a 9-10 and had to exchange one boot for a half size larger, and couldn't believe how fabulous the service was. I got right to a live person on their 1-800 number, sent off my shoes and had my new ones within a week. Now that's great service. I'll always be a loyal shopper to them.  

Have you shopped GoJane? Have you heard about them? If not, check them out today!

Right on Target

Lately, Target has had the cutest stuff in their clothing and shoes. I've been loving everything I've been finding there. I've picked up a few things, but couldn't find everything yet in store or in my size.  Here are some of my favorites!

They come in several colors, but run a bit small so size up. These are the perfect neon pink IRL and remind me of that super cute girl I saw at the airport (see my stalker pic in this post)

I am in love with this skirt! I wore it in this OOTD post and it's so comfortable and even has pockets! Just be careful of any breezes, you don't want a Marilyn moment.
This dress looks so comfortable and would be so simple and easy to wear. I picture it with a straw fedora dont' you?

These fit true to size and are super comfy! They'll look so cute with every outfit and will transition perfectly into fall/winter with black tights.

Remember my Sandals Wishlist post a while ago? Well these are total look-alike to these DV Archer sandals I'm in love with. I haven't seen them in stores yet, but my eyes are peeled!

What have you found recently there? 
Tell me this isn't the story of your life every time you walk in there? It's like I need horse blinders for every trip.

Utah, my Motherland

Just over a week ago, I got to go back to my hometown to visit my family and friends and had such a great time. Even though I haven't lived in Utah for sometime now (as of May 31st it will be 13 years since the move) it still feels like home when I visit. I love the culture, the gorgeous scenery everywhere you go, the people, the food, and most of all my loved ones. Here's some pictures of my trip, including some Instagram shots (my username is kristen_lawler).
I took Grandpa to get some custard (it's just like ice cream, but better) to a little place he and Grandma used to take my sister and I all the time. This place has chocolate and vanilla everyday and a third flavor of the day. It was always such a thrill to see what the flavor of the day would be when we were young. 

I also visited my Grandma who has now moved into a home. She has Alzheimer and it's so heartbreaking. I thought I would cry the entire time, but only did a few times. I was proud of myself. My grandparents are two of the most important people in my life and had a huge hand in raising me and helping me to become the person I am today. I miss them so much, I've thought about moving back to Utah a hundred times just to be closer to them. 

While I was there, I also visited the City Creek Center and it's seriously the prettiest mall I've ever seen! The architecture, the colors, the area, everything was so pretty! I could have spent the whole day there. The mall spans three blocks. I even visited it twice! 

They have some great shops and I picked up a few things, but nothing crazy. I also met a few of my childhood friends and we had such a blast catching up and shopping. It was so good to see them, these two girls I've known since preschool. It's so cool that we've kept in touch for so long.

I also got to see one of my besties new home that she and her family built. It was stunning! I loved all of it and immediately called my father-in-law to hatch a plan to get my husband and mother-in-law on board for moving out there.

I also came across some old family photos, isn't my sister the cutest with her wild hair?

Grandpa and my dad at dinner 
PS my Dad is still adamant that Wolf should have been my name and that I should consider naming my future children that. 
Oh you missed that awesome post? Read allllll about it here.

I love all of the Jazz coverage and reading the newspaper each day, even though the season is long over for us.

The swing my grandparents have on their back porch. All 14 of us grandchildren have swung in that swing and I remember telling my grandpa to push me "higher! higher!" in it. 

Oh, and I saw this girl wearing the cutest outfit at the airport. I couldn't stop staring, her hair was amazing too! I'm totally going to copy this whole outfit. Excuse the creeper pic, she was on the phone and I didn't get a chance to ask her for a proper pic. LOL. 

I also spent time with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. I wanted to take pictures, but I totally forgot! I had the best time hanging out with them. It made me miss everyone even more! Every time I visit, I always want to move back. I seriously contemplate it too, I look at job postings, places to live, do a mental pros/cons list. I think I'll eventually end back there, but only the Lord knows! I can't wait to go back again though and I think I'll visit again in the summer time. The weather was perfect and it was nice to have a lighter suitcase. I usually visit in the winter because I miss the snow, but I think it's a valid excuse now to visit at least twice a year. 

Have you ever moved out of state? Do you ever go back and visit your hometown?
