Just like most women, I am very picky when it comes to picking out the right pair of jeans. Sometimes they are too tight on my thighs but loose around my waist, make me look boxy, or are just plain uncomfortable and stiff. That is why when I tried Target’s new denim line I was beyond thrilled. Their jeans are comfortable, flattering, and snug in all the right places! I feel so confident while wearing them and they are really the perfect jean. I am excited to share them with you!

Last week I took a little trip to one of my favorite stores, T.J. Maxx, and of course, it didn’t disappoint. As you guys know, I love it and I go there often! There’s one right by my job so I always go after work to do my shopping. Sometimes, I even find time to squeeze in a visit during my lunch break!

Between working a demanding full-time 9-5, blogging, and a really busy social life, it is super convenient because I can get so many things I need all at once despite my crazy schedule. They always have what I need, from cute outfits, shoes, home decor, and even things for my niece and nephews! I have 3 and they’re ages 17, 6, and 3 so I always find great things for them while I’m there.

During this visit I got the CUTEST yoga pants! I am absolutely in love! Summer is basically here so now is the time to work out more than ever! So, I have been looking for yoga pants to work out in with this colorful “galaxy” looking print for a while but they are always super expensive. I found some at T.J. Maxx for an excellent value and the quality is just as great as the other ones! They’re really thick too which is really important when I’m choosing yoga pants. I don’t like when they’re thin and flimsy, but these are perfect. I even picked up a cute workout tank to go with it. Now, I’m even more motivated to work out and go to the gym because let’s face it–cute workout clothes definitely help!

Of course while I was there I had to pick up something for one of my babies! I ended up finding these adorable flip flops for my niece! I truly love spending time with my niece and nephews. They bring me so much joy and I am so crazy about them! I always like bringing little gifts whenever I see them and they love all the things I give them from T.J. Maxx! Even though gifts aren’t the most important thing, they are one of the ways I show them my love.
