Purr Fect Print Top, Lolita Control Leggings and Wide Bands Cuff in Silvertone (c/o Monroe and Main)

When I think of Fall, I generally think of dark colors. This Fall, add some color to your look! I love cobalt for that exact reason. It’s a great color that can honestly carry through all seasons. Cobalt is such a great accent color for the Fall color palette. Take this gorgeous Monroe and Main top, it compliments the print and the otherwise dark color of this outfit and makes it pop. I love the waterfall back of the shirt. It’s pleated and sheer, but really looks lovely from all sides. I chose to pair this shirt with a great pair of black leggings, so that the shirt could be the center of this outfit. I really like this outfit for Fall. It’s a great outfit for running errands all day, or going on a lunch date – while being comfortable and looking chic. The Monroe and Main Fall Color Confidence section has quite a few additional gorgeous cobalt options to add to your Fall wardrobe, and give you that Fall color confidence.

Last Minute Party Prep with Target Beauty Box on Kirstin Marie #TargetBeautyBox #TargetStyle #BeautyBox #Sponsored

Quick! You’ve got one hour to prep yourself for an End-of-Summer Party. Which products do you reach for?

Last-minute party prep can be very stressful. Especially when it comes to making yourself look and feel great in a flash. I, personally, want to look and feel fresh, put together, and welcoming when I am heading to a last-minute party. With three of the products from my Target Beauty Box, I can prep myself in an hour and be ready to party!

1. Fekkai Soleil Pre-Soleil Hair Mist Invisible Sun Filter

Fekkai Soleil Spary Target Beauty Box Last Minute Party Prep on Kirstin Marie

This mist is perfect to achieve frizz free, tamed, shiny hair. Nothing makes me feel more put together than great brows and an amazing hairstyle. This hair mist is nice and light weight, and really tames my fly aways.

2. Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1hr Express

Crest White Strips Target Beauty Box Last Minute Party prep on kirstin marie

A bright white smile is really welcoming, and really makes me feel good about myself when I reveal my pearly whites. I love to laugh and I love to smile, so having nice, clean, bright teeth is a must when it comes to last minute party prep.

3. Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara in Black

Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara Target Beauty Box last minute party prep on kirstin marie

Just before I head out the door, or before my guests arrive to my last-minute soiree, I swipe my lashes with this mascara to give my lashes an extra bit of oomph. I love the volume this mascara gives me (check it out on instagram!), and I really love that is goes on nice, smooth, and clump free.

Would you use any of these products for your last-minute party prep? I want to know! Leave me a comment below and let’s chat about it!

Easy like 1, 2, 3 with Target Beauty Box on Kirstin Marie

Beauty products are an important part of my day to day routine. I have a handful of favorites that I generally stick to. Every once in a while, I will branch outside of my favorites box and try something new. You never know until you try, right? Thanks to social media, friends, other bloggers, and other resources, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with the amount of new and available beauty products that are released every day. That’s where the Target Beauty Box comes into play. The box is filled with 5 – 6 products that can be found at your local Target. Some of the products are full sized, which is a nice bonus, and some are trial size. Target Beauty offers a variety of make-up, hair care and skin care products for all ages, styles and budgets.

Target Beauty Box on Kirstin Marie #TargetStyle #BeautyBox

My Target Beauty Box had five products inside:

  • Clairol Hair Food Moisture Hair Mask Infused with Honey Apricot Fragrance
  • Crest 3D White Whitestrips 1hr Express
  • Olay Active Botanicals Moisturizing Toner and Moisturizing Day Lotion
  • Covergirl The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara in Black
  • Fekkai Soleil Pre-Soleil Hair Mist Invisible Sun Filter

I love how these products can easily fit into my day to day lifestyle. I can easily spritz my hair in the mornings with the Fekkai Soleil Pre-Soleil Hair Mist Invisible Sun Filter, and swipe a couple coats of the Covergirl The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara on my lashes before I head out the door. This way I’ve got all day to try the products, and see that it doesn’t add much time to my daily routine. The Target Beauty Box really helps me to be able to integrate different products into my day-to-day rotation. Are you eager to try new products in your day-to-day product rotation?

Denim for your every mood with Target Denim and Kirstin Marie #TargetStyle

Target denim loves every body, and I love using my favorite pair of jeans from Target to reflect my moods. No two moods are alike, which is why dressing for my mood really helps to set me up for my day. Do you wear denim for your every mood? Here are some of my favorite moods and how I like to incorporate denim to show off my attitude:

Mood: Flowy & relaxed

Target plus size jeggings boho outfit on Kirstin Marie

I adore the boho chic vibe. It’s flowy, relaxed, pretty, and filled with bell sleeves and comfy, distressed jeans. My Target denim jeggings are the perfect finish to a comfy, flowy, relaxed, boho chic mood.

Mood: Pin-up Girl, Vixen Like

Target plus size jeggings retro look on Kirstin Marie

When I’m feeling sassy and saucy, my favorite way to dress to satisfy my mood is retro pin-up style. I feel like a vintage vixen in this outfit, and that makes my mood spike up to high gear.

Mood: Comfy, lazy, casual

Target plus size jeggings casual outfit on Kirstin Marie

I work A LOT. I’m often not in the mood to get super dressed up during my downtime. I want to be comfy, lazy, and casual. Whether I’m out grabbing a quick bite to eat with my hubby, or lounging around the house, bingeing my favorite show on Netflix. This outfit is perfection for a lazy day.

Mood: Girly, Going out with my girlfriends

Target Plus size jeggings girls night out look  Denim for Your Every Mood on Kirstin Marie #TargetStyle

When I’m heading out with my girlfriends, I like to feel girly and comfortable, while looking cute. I love the combination of textures in this outfit, and the distressing on my Target jeans really tops this look off.

Does your style reflect who you are, what mood you are in or what your attitude is? Denim is the perfect canvas for self-expression, and is so easy to incorporate into your every day look. Did you know that Target is having an awesome denim promotion during the first two weeks in August (8/2 – 8/15). You’ll get free shipping AND free returns when you shop denim on www.target.com/jeans.

Butterfly Maxi Dress, Tote, and Pop of Color Retro Sunglasses (c/o Maurices)

Happy August!!! This year is FLYING. Entering into the final months of Summer have me embracing the sweet, soft patterns; Spring’s lingering whispers as Summer takes off with an explosion of sun, bright colors, and beach days.

Maurices sent me an awesome gift box with this beautiful butterfly print maxi dress, eos lip balm, these super cute sunglasses, this great beige tote (which has an awesome little pouch inside!), and this awesome little mason jar cup with a straw. I am obsessed with the mason jar cup. It’s my morning iced coffee cup! I adore the butterflies on this dress. It makes what would be a color block style more delicate. I feel very light, airy, feminine and comfortable in this look, especially with the scorching heat of August. I feel that this dress is so perfect for these final months of summer. It’s got spaghetti straps, which is why I chose to wear an open cardigan. I always get cold indoors! The length of this dress is like it was made for me!! I’m short (5’4″), so finding maxi dresses that I don’t have to pick up like it’s a Cinderella ballgown while I’m walking are a major A+ for me!!

It’s really important to be able to feel cool and comfortable while still feeling amazing and looking put together. Maurices has a really great selection of plus size dresses, which is where I found my pretty butterfly maxi dress. I love this bandana print dress. It would be super cute with a denim jacket, and cute sandals or flats for a picnic in the park or on the beach!

This post was done in collaboration with Maurices. All opinions are my own.

Sweatual Healing with Mira

Working out, dieting, keeping track of your calories, counting your steps, watching what you eat, clean eating…the list goes on and on. While I really do enjoy eating healthy and exercising, sometimes I get very frustrated trying to find a credible, comfortable, practical way to keep track of my activity levels. I don’t find it practical to keep checking in on an app each time I eat something or exercise to track it. That just is not for me, especially with constantly being on the go with work (and let me tell you, I work 24/7). Being in the entertainment industry definitely has it’s ups and downs. The major down side is long hours, working most often 7 days a week and trying to find time to exercise, stay healthy, spend time with my hubby & pups, and of course, precious sleep. Thank goodness for !!! This bracelet is the best thing since sliced bread. It’s practical, (meaning that I can set it up to track a variety of different things), it’s small, AND it looks really cute, like a pretty piece of jewelry. How often can you say that your fitness tracker looks like a dainty bracelet?A photo posted by Kirstin Anderson (@kirstinmarie) on

The perfect fit for me with Target Denim

Kirstin Marie Target Plus Size Denim Line #TargetStyle perfect fit for me

Finding a great pair of jeans is a task in itself. Many people dread the simple thought of going jean shopping, let alone actually going through with it. I generally sift through so many different styles, that I get frustrated very quickly. Luckily, Target is revamping & releasing a brand new denim collection!! The new Target denim collection is awesome. The variety of styles, fits, and sizes (yes, ladies! They’ve got plus sizes too!!) is a major, welcome change. Target’s new and improved denim is made to fit your every expression, no matter who you are, how you feel, what you do, or where you go.

I tried out three different styles and fits of the new Target denim line, and have to say, while I love all three, my perfect pair are the Plus Size Distressed Jeggings. They are perfect with a capital P.

Target Plus Size Distressed Jeggings Plus Size Retro outfit on Kirstin Marie Target Plus Size Distressed Jeggings on Kirstin Marie

The way these jeans hug my curves, fit my waist, hips, legs and my butt is so absolutely perfect. They fit like a dream, and feel like they were made for me! I love the bits of distressing on the jeans. I really like a casual, comfy pair of jeans. They are buttery soft, with the perfect amount of stretch to them. They didn’t slide down, nor did they have that annoying waist gap in the back. These truly are my perfect fit. I styled this pair with a retro vibe. I chose a fitted top, a cute cardigan, and a great pair of wedges making this outfit a great date night look.

My second favorite pair out of the three is the Plus Size White Jeggings.

These are a bit thicker than my perfect pair. I’m not normally one to wear white jeans, but these fit so well and are just so cute! These hug my curves and make me feel super confident, which is really important; especially when wearing a color I normally wouldn’t! I love the way they look cuffed, but they do come down past my ankles, which makes them great for wearing with a cute pair of heels. I styled this pair with a cozy oversized sweater, a great pair of sneakers, and an oversized tote, making this outfit the perfect outfit for running errands all day.

Finally, the last pair I tried out is the Plus Size High Waist Skinny Jeans.

Target Plus Size High Waist Skinny Jeans Charlotte Russe Plus Black and white blouse and duster on Kirstin marie Target Plus Size High Waist Skinny Jeans on Kirstin Marie

This pair was just a tad too big for me overall. They are also incredibly soft, which I have to say, I am loving. These are absolutely high waist jeans, as they did come just above my belly button, with room to spare. They are a bit stretchier than the jeggings, which makes them great travel jeans! I styled this pair with a cute bow button down top, a long duster, and some studded heels to give this look and edgier feel. This outfit would be great for grabbing drinks with your girlfriends, or doing a little bit of shopping!

So…are you game for a new pair (or two!) of affordable, comfy, great jeans? Now it’s your turn! Show everyone what you’re made of. Starting July 26th, you can try on Target denim in stores to receive $10 off!! I wanna see which pair of jeans is your perfect pair! Head to your local store, try on a few pairs of the new collection, and tag me in your Instagram (@kirstinmarie), tweets (@kirstinfoley), or snaps (@itsmekirstinm) with #TargetStyle!! Don’t forget to check out what style would be your perfect fit for your shape and style at http://target.com/jeans & leave a review on Target.com! Find your style @targetstyle.

Beach Print Tank Dress (via Gwynnie Bee c/o) | Heart Shaped Sunglasses (Deb Shops – Old) | Rings (ASOS & Lane Bryant) | Necklace (Deb Shops – Old)

Do you want something fun, new, and exciting to start off your Summer? How does a winning a free wardrobe for a year sound?! That sounds great!

I am always, always looking for new, inventive, affordable, ways to revamp my wardrobe. I love shopping, but my wallet does not. Thanks to Gwynnie Bee, I can “shop” as much as I want to without spending much money at all! Gwynnie Bee is an online retail clothing rental subscription that caters to women sizes 10-32. For a flat monthly fee, you get to curate your very own collection to try and free shipping to & from your home!! Gwynnie Bee has quite a few packages available for you to select from, depending on how many pieces you’d like to receive at one time. The best part? There is no limit on when you can return them!! Let’s say you love an item, and you don’t know when you want to return it. You don’t have to feel the pressure of returning it by a certain date. When you do decide that you are done with the items, simply send them back in the prepaid labeled shipping envelop from anywhere in the US, and Gwynnie Bee takes care of laundering the items for you! My absolute favorite feature is the buy it feature. I fell in love with two dresses that I received last year. Last year!! I’ve held onto them since then, and waited until they were super cheap to purchase. Then, BAM! Mine forever for a fraction of what they would’ve cost me had I purchased them a year ago. All the while I have been able to wear them as much as I like.

I was given 5 pieces from Gwynnie Bee’s Spring & Summer Collection to try out. I ended up loving this cute Beach Print Tank Dress the most. It fits really well, it’s light weight, and the print is adorable!! It just screamed South Florida Summer to me. It does have quite a bit of stretch to it for a shift dress. I’m wearing a 2x. I feel I could’ve comfortably taken a 1x in this dress, as shift dresses tend to be a very open cut.

1970s Style with my Adora Bag

Shoes and bags are my addiction. I’m constantly shopping for them, and constantly rotating items in and out of my collection. I’ve been looking for the perfect black bag, and when I had the opportunity to partner up with Adora Bags, I jumped at the chance. This bag is absolutely stunning. It’s 100% Italian leather (including the hardware!!). It’s beautifully crafted, buttery soft, and let me just tell you that I cannot get enough of the rich, indulgent scent that Italian leather has. This bag is huge, and fits so much inside, but is still extremely comfortable to carry.

I could not resist instantly swapping into this bag the moment it arrived at my door. I’ve been carrying it for almost a week now and I don’t see myself changing any time soon. I love the little clutch inside. It’s a great place for all of the little stuff that I don’t want floating around inside the bag. Aside from the fact that this luxury bag is just stellar, my favorite part about it is the little tassel. Oh yes and hello to some sweet fringe tassel accent to perfectly finish off an amazing bag.

Very soon myself, along with a group of fabulous bloggers, will be hosting an $840 giveaway to Adora Bags. Be sure to keep checking back in for that!! In the mean time, hop over to see how all of the bloggers have styled up their Adora Bags, and what they’ve got to say about them!
