Oh Deer. Have I never before mentioned how I fawn over does and bucks?!

I don't know who did it, but someone told Target my dirty little secret.  That I'm impossibly, severely, obsessively smitten with deer... and have been for about five years. Especially white porcelain deer.  I swoon, squeal, and altogether fawn over them.  (Fawn! Heh--get it?!)  But really.  This is serious.  I walked into Target for a casual little stroll about the store tonight.  And never have I had to forcefully remove myself from the decorating aisle.  I practiced some serious self control there, folks.  These darling deer were all meant for me!  The big deer head.  The little deer figurines.  The deer candle holder.  The deer plate.  *sigh* I'm so very swept off of my feet by Target right now.

Then I snooped around the web for other lovely deer things.  (Why do I torture myself?!)  I'm head-over-heels for the pillow with a doe-in-a-gown and buck-in-a-tux waltzing. How romantic!  The deer watch had me hello.  The deer bedding has me rethinking my decor.  The deer head wine stopper is to-die-for.  The antler jewelry!  The adorable deer sweatshirt!  The antler mug!  And even fair isle undies with tiny little deer all over them?!  I'm so overwhelmed and enthralled right now. 


Oh, deer.  Oh, deer.  Oh, deer.

So I'm from the South where people hunt and have legitimate deer heads on the walls of their houses red neck style. I'm not so much into that, but I'm totally into the kind of deer stuff your talking about. Haha. Once I tried to explain to someone that I liked deer, but only the classy, chic kind...and they just looked at me like I was crazy. I'm glad to know that someone else gets it :) I love the white porcelain ones too!
Love it! Deer are so cute. :)

How funny! I literally JUST got home from Target and saw allll the deer cuteness. I already own a sparkly champagne colored deer (like the one in their decorating aisle). Did you check out the ornaments? There are some pretty adorable (and affordable) ones that could be turned into figurines if you just snipped off their hangers!

So funny! I was just at Target and I browsed through all these deer! Did you see all the deer ornaments too? I bet you could buy one and snip off the hanger to make it into a figurine. They are more affordable!

Hi from a new(ish) follower... Not only did I loooove the recent post about flannel styles (something I'm currently contemplating), but this is so great! I'm in Germany and the amount of adorable deer stuff in the stores now is out of hand... I picked up a great porcelain stag dish a few months ago and am currently trying to resist ordering it's matching doe counterpart. If only we had Target here so I could pick up some of these too!


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
