Target Tuesday - A Little of This and That

I had most of this ready but couldn't get it over the finish line yesterday to get it over to you. Here's a quick review of some recent Target finds. 

I LOVE summer dress season and since March, Target has been killing it with their dress selection. 
This is a simple but super cute dress that will be so versatile this season. You can dress it up with heels and a statement earring, dress it down with flats and a jean jacket and even wear it for work with a blazer and pumps. Fit is true to size. You get a nice snug fit across the chest so you could potentially go braless and just wear pasties. Lots of colors to pick from. 

dress / shoes

I really, really wanted this dress to work. I just think the print is so pretty and the ruffle sleeve detail is perfect. Unfortunately the rest of the dress just made me look like I was wear a mumu. I will say if you are expecting, then snag this...the perfect pregnancy and postpartum dress.

I found a cute spring/summer purse that will fit just the essentials - phone and lip gloss. It's a super cute beaded bag that you can dress up on down. Comes in a bunch of different color combos.

This top might look familiar as I tried it in the chambray color a few weeks ago. I thought the floral would be cute for those cooler spring days and I was right. Very pretty print and flattering shape. Again fit is true to size. Would be great for a casual day or even to work with white jeans. Other colors available.

This is a super cute one shoulder top with the most perfect ruffle detail. You can dress it up or down and really wear with any bottoms. Has a fitted bottom. Comes in a bunch of colors. Fit is true to size.

Dressing Room Diaries: J.Crew Try On

Check out my latest J.Crew try on...just in time for their sale. 30% off your purchase with code SPRING. 

This is a super cute lined dress that could work for work or play. It's comfortable and flowy but still has structure and shape. And I love the cute ruffle detail at the bottom. Comes in a couple of colors but I really love this yellow color. . The only down side is that its a linen material which isn't very forgiving with wrinkles. 

Who doesn't love a simple cotton dress for summer time?!?! This one is the perfect one to fit that bill. It's a simple dress with details that set it apart from others - tiered style with tie neck (can create a key hole style) and ruffle sleeves. Because of these details you could definitely dress it up or down. It made with a super soft cotton material. Comes in a few colors. I'm in an XS and very comfortable in it. 

I love a good pull on skirt in the summer time and I was so excited for this J.Crew x Liberty collab one. I absolutely LOVE the print. Overall the skirt is super cute (I sized up to a small) but I didn't end up keeping it because it was just too pouffy on my frame. There was just a little too much fabric for my short stature. 

Gauze material tops are perfect season transition pieces. This one is super cute. I went with white but I really wish I had tried one of the other colors. Cute pleating detail at the top and gathered sleeve at the wrist. You can definitely dress this shirt up for work or keep it casual on the weekends. 

bikini top / bikini bottom

This french top style bikini is one of my favorite styles. It just fits my body type well. I feel secure in it and the "girls" aren't going to fall out but still has a cute style to it. I'm in a small in both the top and bottom. The bottoms have great bum coverage...not cheeky at all. 

I wanted to refresh my jeans with a lighter pair for spring. I wanted something that was casual with more of a relaxed fit but not too baggy. Tried three different pairs and here are the results. 

This first pair was ok. They were a little baggier than I would have liked but I think would have tightened up after I threw them in the dryer. Overall fit was good but I wasn't a fan of the was so I decided to pass on these. 

These were definitely a no go for me. Way to baggy and the length (even thought I am in petite) was too long. I needed to be taller I think for these to work for me. They look much cuter on the model. 

This last pair was the only pair not out of my comfort zone and shocker they were the ones that I picked. I love the toothpick style because they really nicely on me. I sized up to a 27 so it wouldn't be as snug of a fit. Love the marine wash (something I don't have) because it will be perfect for spring. And every time I wear these, Hubs comments on how nice my tush looks. Highly recommend. 

Note: This sale was going on as of me posting on April 3 so pricing and deals may have changed.

Target Tuesday - Spring Transition Pieces

Target has been crushing it with their spring fashion. These are some of my favorites that are perfect to transition to the spring temperatures. 

shirt/ jeans / shoes

This is a super cute top for spring. I love that it's three quarter length sleeve for those chillier April days. I went with the green floral but there are a few other prints including a pink floral that is really pretty. It's work appropriate or for a night out. Fit is true to size. 

shirt / jeans / shoes

This smocked style top is everywhere this season. This one from Who What Wear brand has super cute details like the balloon sleeves. It's the perfect transition top. Wear for work or play. Pair with jeans or white pants. I went with the chambray color but there are two very pretty spring prints available. I'm wearing a small but probably could have gotten away with an extra-small. 

dress / belt / shoes

This dress reminds me very much like something you would see at Boden but the price tag is much better. It is the perfect dress to transition from winter to spring. Love the print - there is also a plaid and pink floral print available. Fit is true to size, I'm in an XS. It already has a pretty fitted look but you could also belt it. Which do you like better? 

shoes / wrap / tank / jeans

Here's another fabulous shoe find from Target. These casual slide sandals are super comfortable and are going to go with so many looks this summer. You can dress them up or down. Fit is true to size. They come in a bunch of shades of brown. I went with a darker one since I don't have that in my closet.

dress / shoes (left) / shoes (right) 

I've shown this dress before in black but I when it came back in the colors I wanted I had to snag them. Love the vibrant pink and the orange print. These are perfect for spring. The dress does run on the short side (I'm 5'1") so keep that in mind.

Dressing Room Diaries: Evereve Spring Sale Order

I took advantage of Evereve's spring sale a couple weeks ago. I didn't expect to love everything I got but I did!! Take a look at what I got. 

Shorts Look: top / necklace / shorts / shoes
Jeans Look: top / necklace / jeans / shoes

This is the perfect spring/summer top. I love the bold orange/red color. You can start the spring season with pants - jeans or white jeans and then when the weather gets warm, transition to shorts. At first wear the off-the-shoulder style seemed to stay in place. It's a great length, not too long so you can wear it with shorts. And if you give it a little french tuck then you get a little more shape. Fit is true to size 

I absolutely LOVE this dress!! The print is so pretty and perfect for spring. It runs big so I ended up returning this and I'm waiting on the size 0 to come. If you aren't into print, this also comes in two solid color options. I will definitely wear this to work but also for date night. 

 wrap / tank / jeans / shoes 

I LOVE this wrap for a transition piece to go from these cooler winter months to spring. It's a fun yellow print and very comfortable. You can dress it up or down. I already wore this for date night last week.

Dressing Room Diaries: Amazon Finds

I've got a FABULOUS Amazon try on for you. I honestly kept every single piece from what I'm sharing (except for the look for less because I already have something similar). Happy Shopping!! 

I have really lucked out the past couple of weeks with Amazon dresses. I have found so many cute ones for spring and summer.
dress / shoes

I love this geometric pattern of this dress. The colors are so bright and vibrant. Can't wait to wear it in a few weeks when temperatures warm up. Fit is true to size. Lots of colors and prints available.

dress / shoes

Here's another dress, very similar to the one above. These are the perfect spring/summer dresses for work or play. Very comfortable and comes in a bunch of prints or solids. V-Neck isn't too deep so it's work appropriate. Dress it up or down. Fit is true to size. I'm in a small. Check it out - 

dress / shoes

This dress is an oldie but it came back in stock so I thought I'd share. Love the print (so many of you to choose from) and it's so comfortable. Fit runs a bit big, I'm in an XS (the small was too big on me).

dress / earrings / necklace / shoes

I am absolutely OBSESSED with this dress. It is going to be the perfect spring break look. Very comfortable material and so flattering. Pairs very nicely with my Amazon earrings. The two of them combined are under $60!!! If pink isn't your thing, it comes in a green and white version. I'm wearing an XS and it fits great. 


This goes in a category all on its own for most comfortable jumpsuit ever. It's like wearing pajamas as has by far been the most purchased item (next to the Target sandals) over the last couple of weeks. It comes in a bunch of colors and prints. I'm wearing a small. It's on the bigger size but I wanted that look.

tank / leggings / sneakers

I am always looking for new workout clothes and its a bonus when they can double as athleisure wear too. Love this semi-cropped tanks. Super soft material, perfect length and very comfortable. They come in a bunch of colors. I tried both the XS and S and I thought the S fit the best for me.

This tank is such a fun one for summer. My friend got it for us for our girls trip. I love the cut and it's so comfortable. Highly recommend. I'm in a small.

In my look for less for this month, here's a fabulous find. Full disclosure the original was not a high cost item (it is from Target) but its not available anymore and I found a fabulous similar Amazon item that has been very popular with my Facebook followers.

In my non-fashion find, we've got a few trips coming up and I needed to replace our luggage tags on our suitcases. I found these super cute ones on Amazon. Great price point and so far I'm happy with the quality. We will see after they are manhandled at the airport.

Target Tuesday - Quick Dress and Bikini Try On

I've got a smaller Target try on for you with some fabulous dresses and two cute bikinis.

I am absolutely LOVING this look for the spring/summer months. It's perfect for work or play and the entire look is under $75! The dress is true to size and comes in a bunch of colors. I'm eyeing the pink and the print and just snagged them today to try. Shoes are also true to size and come in a few options.

This is a super cute denim dress from the Who What Wear brand. I love the button down detail and tie waist. It's a heavy duty denim so the belt is a little tricky to get tied just right. Perfect for work or play. Comes in one other denim rinse. Fit is true to size. Overall I think the dress is cute, but in my opinion I don't think it's worth the $40 Target price tag. 

Another fabulous dress for spring. This one comes in a bunch of colors and you can dress it up or down. Very, very comfortable. Fit is true to size. I'm in an XS. Highly recommend as this is the perfect staple for your warm weather wardrobe.

top (I sized up to an XS) / bottoms (I sized up to a medium)

This suit gives you a little more coverage on the top with the extra straps. 

top (I sized up to a S) / bottoms (I sized up to a S)

This was the perfect look for less version to the one I got from Beach Riot

Target Tuesday - Bring on Warmer Temps

It's been a long time since I've done a round up of Target try ons. I'm over winter and ready for some warmer temps and the Target new arrivals have me all excited. Check out some fabulous finds from my last shopping trip.
This dress is probably hands down my FAVORITE piece from this Target try on. The eyelet detail speaks my fashion love language. It's the perfect dress for the spring...definitely an Easter contender and then will be on repeat for work. I'm partial to this green but it also comes in black. Fit is true to size. 
It would be the perfect Easter dress and you can definitely wear to work too. It comes in black as well as this gorgeous green. Fit is true to size. This definitely won't last long.

Here's a two for one review - dress and bag. Let me start with the dress. This is on trend with the cut outs. With trendier pieces like this I don't like to spend a ton of money on them because they tend to only be in-style for a season. I love the floral print on this one. It runs a bit small, I'm in a small here but tried the medium and think that one works better. Now onto the purse, I have a rattan bag from Amazon last season. It's a darker tone so I was on the hunt for a lighter one and this one is PERFECT.  This one has a full zipper and is adjustable. 

I tried out Target's look for less version of the Lululemon bag and overall I think its a fabulous alternative. Great size and shape (a little smaller than the Lululemon one), quality is good and there are a bunch of colors to pick from. I wish that these had been around at Christmas time and I would have snagged them for my minis.

Here's another look for less. I actually ordered the Dolce Vita version of these mules in nude (waiting for them to arrive) and decided to get the Target version in black (the nude wasn't available at the time). Now I can't compare them to the pricier version but these Target ones are fabulous. They are going to go with so many looks this spring and summer. Fit is true to size, I'm in my usual 6.5.


And we've got another shoe dupe for you. This time we have Birkenstocks look for less. I've had my eye on the metallic ones but couldn't justify the $100+ price tag for something I wasn't sure I was going to wear all that much. These are a fraction of the price at $25 and still cute and comfortable. They come in whole sizes so I sized up to a 7 (I normally wear a 6.5). And I paired them with my favorite Target under $20 cut off shorts.

Five Friday Favorites - Fall Transition Pieces

It has been a really long time since I've done a Five Friday Favorites but an idea sparked yesterday that I thought would be a fun post - Five Fall Transition Favorites. 

#1 - Fall (but could still work for warm weather) Dresses 
Love all of these dresses because you can wear them now with sandals or flats and then once the weather gets warm you can transition to booties or boots. And did I mention all of these dresses are super affordable! 

Right Side Outfit Details - top / jeans / shoes
#2 - Casual Sneaker 
I have always wanted a pair of Golden Goose sneakers but couldn't justify the big price tag since I wouldn't wear them all the time. I found these Sam Edelman ones and they are the perfect dupes and they recently went on sale. Super cute and comfortable. Another great casual sneaker that I have and love is Rothy's slip ons. Come in a bunch of colors and they are washable. And click here to get $30 off your first purchase. 

A jean jacket is a MUST HAVE in your closet. I use mine year round and I love it. Goes with SO any things and its so perfect for layering. I've had this Kut from the Kloth one for years now and it never goes out of style. Highly recommend. 

Left Look - cardigan / tee / jeans / sneakers
Right Look - cardigan / dress / sneakers

#4 - Layering Cardigan 
As we transition to fall clothes, you definitely need a layering cardigan in your closet to pull for those cool mornings and nights. This one from Target is perfect and very affordable. Goes with so many looks. I'm also a big fan of Barefoot Dreams ones...they are pricier but SO soft!! 

wrap / top (oldie) / necklace / jeans

#5 - Wrap
When I was working in an office every day, I would always have a wrap on hand because it could get really chilly. The same applies at home because some mornings it is so chilly. I LOVE this camo one from Amazon - so comfortable and chic. Comes in other prints as well. I also love a good plaid, like this one
