Public Service Announcement: Some of you all may not know that I also write a little blog called secondary embarrassment. It’s basically an ode to all the crazies that pop up each week on The Bachelor (ette/Pad). If you share the same awkward embarrassment every time you tune into ABC on Mondays, then you might be interested in checking my recaps out.  Oh and you’ve been warned, they are not full of sugar, spice and everything nice. If that’s not for you then back to your regularly scheduled post.

This weekend one of my very few excursions outside the house was to Target (obviously). I’m holding strong on my goal to stifle the spending in January and make the most of what I have but I couldn’t help but notice a flash of neon as I made my way past the clothes and over to the boring home necessities.

And then on Sunday, I settled in to do a little reading and flipped open the February Lucky Magazine, only to see this:

There it was again. That perfectly fun and flirty neon number. As much as I loved it, I couldn’t help but think “will we all love neon tomorrow?” (sung just like the classic ditty.) But after online {window} shopping, it was clear that the bright hue would be popping up this spring. I knew I had to piggy back on Lucky and show just how great of a steal this shift is. But better act fast, I couldn’t find it in green online anymore, so head over to your local Target (where you know you’ll drop $100 and only have one small bag to show for it) ASAP.

p.s. – Just in case you’re wondering, I didn’t buy the dress but you know I wanted to! Still holding strong!
