How ‘A New Day’ at Target Gave Me Unicorn Pants

Last week I found myself back at the old bullseye also known as Target for what felt like the billionth time in weeks.  Yes, we needed more school supplies (Dear, middle school you can stop now with all the per class special requests) and some items for the girls' new fall activities.  Wouldn't you know it also gave me time to check out the 'A New Day' line in the Target women's department?

Fashion Find: Mossimo Fedora

I picked up this hat for the summer yesterday. $12.99 Mossimo Fedora at Target. It was exactly what I was looking for and the price cannot be beat!
