Target Try-On Session No.1

Hello everyone!  It has been quite some time since I wrote a blog post, but I ran into Target last weekend & wanted to share all my finds.  Now keep in mind, I took most of these pics in the dressing room with no real thought of writing a post about any of this.  Why did I even take pics then, you ask?  Because I’m a terrible decision maker & was sending them to my waiting husband (who needed me to hurry up since he had a fantasy football draft to get to) to help me decide.  Love ya, babe 😉  The pics that aren’t in the dressing room were snapped right quick after I decided to share.  So without further ado, here is my first try-on post.  Hope you enjoy!

Let’s start with sweaters.

Up first, this Knox Rose cardigan.  The colors are more vibrant than this pic shows & I think I’ll wear it with several colors underneath this fall. I would say it runs a bit big.  Wearing in XS, so definitely size down if in between.

Beige Cardigan

Are you guys liking the shorter cardigan trend?  I wasn’t sure until I tried on this Universal Thread cable stitch sweater.  I’m sure to be wearing this on repeat this fall.  I also think you can wear a couple different colors with this one & dress it up with black pants.  I’m wearing it in the taupe color in XS.

This Knox Rose tie-dye sweater is at the top of the list for favorites from this try-on.  I love the fun colors.  It’s a thinner sweater (you will need to wear something underneath) which will be perfect for the transition from summer to fall.   Wearing in XS.

Last sweater….I did not bring this one home, but that doesn’t mean I won’t go back for it later as I did like it but have to draw the line somewhere :).  This is also Knox Rose, in gray leopard print, although there are several colors available.  Wearing in XS.

Moving on to pants.

This will be a short category as I only bought one pair.  These are A New Day brand, pull on (so comfy), and only $20!  I may go back for more.  Wearing in gray, size small.

Okay, now for shoes.

Also, a short category as I only purchased these A New Day heels, but I also want these in rust & these in fresh white.

Cover Ups

I know, I know it’s almost fall, but maybe you’re going somewhere beachy for fall break.  I loved the color of this Xhiliration cover up.  The website says white, but it’s really more of an off white or cream color.  I also really love the sage green.  Wearing in small.

Lastly, dresses.

Let’s start with this Knox Rose one I didn’t buy.  I liked the way it fit other than the length.  At only 5’2″, it just felt a little off to me.  I’m wearing the red in XS.

This is also Knox Rose brand.  I love it.  We’re planning a trip to Charleston & Savannah, and I think it will be perfect.  Wearing in XS, but could’ve done the small too. *While I was writing this, I checked the Target site & it does appear to be sold out in a lot of sizes, but I turned the notice on to let me know when it was back in stock & was notified twice while typing.

Rounding out this try-on session, is this A New Day sweater dress.  Unfortunately, I do not see it on Target’s site yet, but will keep checking.  In the meantime, maybe it’s available at your local store.  *Yay! It’s finally online, updated with link.

That’s all for this first try-on post.  Hope you enjoyed it. Let me know what other stores you would like to see!

7 Ways to Wear Burgundy Pants



I don’t know about you, but we have to dress up at work every day except Friday.  I tend to get in a rut of wearing the same pants with the same shirt, and a lot of times it’s black pants….so here’s a few ideas to add a little variety to your work outfits.

    Pants ( I size down one in these to a 6)  Sweater ( I size down one in this to, wearing in XS)  Boots ( I sized up a half size to 7.5, probably should’ve sized up a whole size)  Similar Necklace (if I remember right, I bought this one from a school fundraiser 🙂 )

Same look, just different shoes, and I liked the boots better so I’m sharing both.  Similar shirt and scarfSimilar purse.

Sweater ( I sized down to XS in this one)

Floral shirt (TTS, wearing in small)

Cowl neck sweater (TTS, wearing in small)  Belt (wearing in small)

Sweater (TTS, wearing in small)  Heels (I sized down a whole size, wearing in 6)

Hopefully these ideas gives you some inspiration!
