Spring Pieces at Target!

So, confession: I've been VERY "meh" about clothes at Target lately.  Hashtag things I never say.  They've had some good basics, but since I already own pieces like those I have amazingly not bought clothes from Target in quite a while.  (Relatively speaking, of course.  ;) And the shoes have been cute.  I'm just speaking about the clothes.)  I'd even begun looking at new stores which I'll share about another time when my orders ship and I can review items.  I know it's totally a good thing to branch out and I'm excited about that part.  However, I felt like I was cheating on Target since my venture outward was out of discontentment.  Haha!  

Then, yesterday I went to Tarjay for baby food and diapers, and OF COURSE I saw a bunch of cute clothes.  Story of everyone's lives at Target.  Then found more online.  Whew!  Just when I was losing hope in ya, Target.  

Most of the pieces below come in multiple colors or different patterns.  A few notes about them below.

Links to Shop:
one  |  two  |  three  |  four
five  |  six  |  seven  |  eight
nine  |  ten  |  eleven  |  twelve

Row 1: Option 1  |  Option 2  |  Option 3  |  Option 4
Option 1 is a really cute basic dress that can be accessorized a lot of different ways and dressed up or down.  Comes in 4 colors, bright and neutral, but my favorites are the olive shown above and black.

Option 2 is a cute bowtie detail!  It also comes in a black/white polkadot that's super cute.

Row 2: Option 5  |  Option 6  |  Option 7  |  Option 8
Option 5 - floral pencil skirt!  Sooooooo many people have asked me about my floral pencil skirt (see mine HERE) and this one is quite similar!  I also love that #7 is eyelet.  And, STRIPED EVERYTHING PLEASE.  Of course.  ;)

Row 3: Option  9  |  Option 10  |  Option 11  |  Option 12
All the skirts are great for spring and come in other colors, but I'm totally ordering #12 to try it.  I try not to indulge in TOO many trends, but I'm loving fresh and breezy kimonos!  Plus, I'm from Southern California, so laid back is how we do!

Row 4: Option 13  |  Option 14  |  Option 15
I tried 13 and 14 in store and the prints are super cute.  Option 13 comes in different patterns.  Ultimately, #13 didn't flatter my arms.  I'm usually S/M in Merona and if I remember correctly I liked how the M fit better.

I was so close to buying #14, but I'm trying to be picky about the shirts I add this season and my shoulders were a little too broad for these sleeves.  They have a *slight* puff, so that would be fantastic for anyone that is trying to balance out narrow shoulders...or even anyone who has normal proportioned shoulders, whereas mine are broader.  The print is gorgeous!

I also love the print for #15!

I'm going to order #12 to play with it in my wardrobe and see how much I'd really use it, especially knowing it's just for kicks and giggles since who knows how long this trend will last.  But, I want to at least play with it in person!  I'm also thinking of #7 since eyelet detailing is a fun but not overwhelming twist on a standard navy pencil skirt.

Happy hunting!

  2. I have been stalking that blazer (#8) at my local Target for weeks and it will not.go.on.sale.! :)

    I sew so if I find a perfect striped cotton; I'm just going to make one. Still...I love it so much!

  3. Going to try on #14 STAT! I'm afraid I might have the same issue as you--it might make me look like I have bodybuilder shoulders! :) The print is PERFECT though! Thanks for the roundup--i have totally feeling the same about Target!

  4. I just got #14 in a black floral. The sleeve thing is absolutely true but I'm in the other half of the shoulder size. It was my first sigh of relief with Target's clothing because everything else is just too similar to what I already own or too much a junior fashion when I need work appropriate these days.

  5. I agree, I haven't found much clothing I've liked at Target recently, besides basics (like you said, shoes and accessories are another story). I've been eying that #2 dress though and maybe one of the tops in the bottom row...I need more than just t-shirts!

  6. Gah wish we had Target in the uk!!

  7. Nice finds. You have a good eye to pick clothes, i am mostly always confused :(
    I have a similar Olive dress like #1 shown above, can you show me different ways to style it?

  8. Love the collections you put together. Great choice of clothes. Also, you should checkout www.fixateboutique.com they are a new up and coming boutique that has been getting alot of buzz lately its also reasonably priced. And, today is free shipping Fridays.

  9. 8, 9, and 12 need to get in my closet NOW! I've pretty much gone to shopping at thrift stores exclusively, but I find a surprising number of Target brands there. Crossing my fingers someone will buy and donate some of these soon ;)

  10. Thanks for this post. I enjoyed the tips and comments you made on the different pieces. I like the fact that you chose different types of items in one post (i.e. pencil skirts, floral tops and jackets). They are all very relevant and can be applicable to different audience (work or casual). Thank you. I do enjoy your blog.

  11. So many cute options! I love that floral pencil skirt--I was getting set to buy one on Piperlime that's very similar but about twice as expensive. I'm glad I read this post first!

  12. I've been very 'meh' too. Either it's because when I'm there I have time to realize I really don't need anything, or maybe it is because I have something similar to everything they have out. Although they do have some great handbags these days...
