Girl, Put Your Records On, Tell Me Your Favorite Song ft. Target Style

Dear Music,

Thanks for always clearing my head, healing my heart, and lifting my spirits.

Who doesn’t love music? I recently took a trip to Good Records in Dallas, Texas and I was so excited to see all the records in the bins. I grew up during the era of CD’s and walk mans. The worst thing that could happen to a 13 year old kid growing up was one of their favorite CD’s got scratched. That felt like the end of the world to any music lover. I also grew up during the era when burning CD’s and creating your own mixtapes were cool. I can’t tell you how many cases of CD’s I’ve bought growing up. Then came the iPod, and of course I had to get my hands on one of those. In 2018 CD’s aren’t as popular as they were before and everyone streams music online.

Even though the devices that we listen to music on has changed through out time one thing remains the same……. the music. A classic will always be a classic. Technology has advanced since my days of burning CD’s now you can stream music on Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, YouTube, etc. This has made listening to your favorite songs easier than ever. One thing I love about people is that they will never let us forget or miss out on the good old days. Record stores have always kept the pieces of history for us old school gyals who loves a good record on a record player or jamming to a CD in the car.

Being at this record store reminded me of my childhood and how much I loved listening to music. Here is a few of some of my favorite oldies.

Jersey Dress & Cute Coffee Shop

Two of my favorite places in the world are thrift stores and cute coffee shops. Thrifting is one of my favorite hobbies. I absolutely love to thrift and I began thrifting in 2011. When I started thrifting, I would only pick out graphic tees and sweaters. I absolutely love crew necks and jackets. As the years went by I started stepping out of my comfort zone and buying different pieces for my wardrobe. I love trhifting because I hate paying full price for clothes. Growing up, I loved getting my older cousins hand-me-downs because I loved her clothes. While most people look down on shopping for secondhand clothes, I am always proud to say that I got this amazing piece from a thrift store. Shopping secondhand was the answer. I can afford to buy clothes at full price, but I love thrifting because I save so much money.

I currently shop at Thrift Plaza in McKinney, Texas. This thrift store is one of my favorite thrift stores ever! The only downside about this thrift store is that they don’t have any fitting rooms but this makes the clothes even more affordable.

A few weekends ago, my blogger babes and I went to a super cute coffee shop in Plano, Texas called Wow Donuts And Drips ( Instagram: @wowdonutsanddrips). We decided to have a donut, chill out, and take some photos.

Thrift Plaza is where I picked up this super cute Texas Rangers Men’s Jersey. Since I am so short, I can wear it as a dress. I decided to style this men’s jersey shirt with some tights from target and my throwback converse sneakers from high school. I never throw away shoes unless they are broken.
