{What I Wore} Target Does It Again


It's no secret that I am a Target lover. And by lover I do mean we see each other a couple times a week.  It is one of my favorite places to shop for clothes, home decor, food, little odds and ends, kids clothes, toilet paper....basically anything. Give me a reason to go and I'll take it. 
In fact for Valentines Day Brandon gave me a Target gift card. Because he knows me well


I follow @targetdoesitagain on instagram. It's two girls who try on clothes and show you all of the latest at Target. It also adds to the Target obsession and makes you feel like you've got to hop in the car and go get that Valentines felt heart garland, like now

So basically if you struggle with an addiction to Target it might not be the best idea to follow them...{says an addict}

On Saturday we celebrated my sister-in-law and her soon to be baby boy {or girl}. She and my brother aren't finding out what their having until the day of, which I'm not happy about, but I guess I have no say.  


She looks amazing doesn't she? She'd be the beauty in green that my sisters and I have our hands on in case you can't tell. Anyway I posted this picture on instagram and got a lot of questions on where the dress I'm wearing is from. So I thought it'd only be fair to go ahead and fess up...

I'm wearing Target head to toe. No lie, from my gold hoop earrings to my brown wedge booties.


This dress is probably the most comfortable thing I've worn....In fact I got it in black first, loved it, went back and got it in gray. I justified this because I could see myself in the hot summer months wishing I had a cute dress to throw on that looked stylish but was still comfortable. So yeah I got it in both colors.

Also loved that it's pretty versatile as far as how to dress it up or down. I dressed it up with wedge booties and a belt. But it could also be worn with sandals when it gets warmer. You also don't need a belt if you don't want to wear one because the waist has a gathering elastic and gives you a nice shape

I do have to say this is one thing I probably wouldn't have looked twice at on the rack in the store because it's by Xhileration and the material seemed a little flimsy. But then the girls of @targetdoesitagain tried it on and made me feel like I had to and then I fell in love.

I blame them. And now you can go get it and blame me. 

You're Welcome

  4. I love this! A chunky belted waist is my fave!
    And there is no way I would follow target on Instagram. That just spells trouble!

    Just love // kelly

  12. I'm 8 months pregnant and have been wearing this dress a LOT (I almost wore it to work today!) - my baby bump makes the already-bias-cut hem rise slightly higher in the front, but nothing too dramatic -- & with sandals, a belt, and a jean jacket or sweater coat it is totally workable in most of our TX temps. AND it will still fit me in a few weeks, after baby boy arrives! I love Target!

    1. Yes! I was actually going to add that this would be perfect for transitioning back and forth between pregnancy and non-pregnancy. My brain still functions in that way- I always think of clothes in how I could wear them later, and this dress would be perfect for when I am pregnant again :) I bet you look adorable in it! Did you do black or gray?

  13. You are so adorable! I'm scared to follow @targetdoesitagain on instagram because the nearest Target is 3 hours away. Life is cruel!
