Missoni for Target Madness Giveaway

Hi Ocean Dreamers, I don't know about you but its been so busy for me lately! I made it back home from Montana and will be in Utah for a few more weeks until I head back to California. That means in the course of the month of August I was in four states (counting my cabin state): California, Utah, Idaho, and Montana. Whew! I love traveling but I am a bit travel weary. It's been nice being back in Utah with my family where I've been able to focus on writing the last few days I've been home...I have a lot of that to do!

So based on my title, I confess that I did give into the Missoni for Target madness. I know you all probably already blogged about this so sorry if you are over the love of Missoni, lol. I'm not one of those people to give into a trend simple because it's "trendy," but with Missoni I LOVE the patterns and colors, so I was instantly obsessed.

Luckily Missoni hit Target when I was in Utah and not to knock Utah, but I'm not sure if everyone really knew it was going on, which was fantastic for people like me. Hence when I headed to Target yesterday (day after it was released,) there were still a good variety of merchandise left! I found some of my favorite finds in two different locations and had a long lunch break yesterday to say the least, ha ha. Look at the loot that I came home with!

Umm, I am loving all of the zig zags, he he! I especially like all of my favorite colors...I won't get tired of wearing my goodies this fall. Guess what the giveaway will consist of? Well, wait and see!
I was lucky to snag the last size small in this dress at the second Target location that I went to. CUTE!
Sigh. Loving my comfy shorts that I'm lounging in right now! ;) you are probably wondering when I'm getting to the giveaway, right?! Well, since I know many of us didn't get to snag some of these goodies like I did...I thought I would share my wealth of a few goodies with you!
