The title may be 5 finds from Target, but the truth is I didn’t buy any of these items, although I was tempted with a couple. And lest you think the only thing I do with my free time is shop, this particular visit was a month ago. I just never got around to sharing, and today seemed like a good time. Maybe you’ll luck out and something will be on sale.
Maybe I’ll luck out and something will be on sale, because I discovered yesterday that my favorite pj bottoms from Target have a hole in them, so I have a legitimate
excuse reason to go there.
We can look bright even if the day isn’t
I’m walking on sunshine (sort of)
The day I did this particular shopping excursion was a bit warmer than it had been for much of February, but gray — and sometimes I like to cheer myself up on a gray day by wearing a bright outfit, like the one above (courtesy of Gap, Old Navy, and DSW — yes, those silver sneakers are really comfy).
The sweater and the pants are obviously quite bright; the chambray shirt helps them to not clash. And the boxy sweater works well over a pair of fitted jeans.
I really wanted to like this jacket, but I just didn’t. Too big, too boxy.
Army green is always in and goes with pretty much anything — see how it tones down my fuschia pants? But just not the right jacket for me.
I’m obssessed with lace
Seriously, I want everything to have a lace edging.
Well, maybe not everything, but lace is almost always in style, too, and to just have a bit peeking out is an easy way to wear it.
I actually really liked this top, but I needed an XS and there weren’t any left in the store. A month ago! I told myself I’d look online, but I haven’t.
After run top
I quite liked this top, too. I like a simple top I can throw on over a sweaty top after a run, so I don’t get chilled. Same deal as the lace top: I need an XS.
I’m not really sure when showing our bras became so in — way back with Madonna, maybe? Funny, I don’t like showing it in front, but I don’t mind as much in back. Maybe because I can’t see it!
Out of sight, out of mind.
This was the second time I tried on this top. I actually quite like it — except for the hoodie.I could see myself wearing it to walk Lola (with a top on under it, not just a bra), for instance.
I’m not a huge fan of hoodies, though.
Dress with a Flounce
Another item I wanted to like, but just didn’t. I think it wold look pretty on a person who has a more up and down build, rather than someone like me, who has curves.
It’s not that it looked bad, but the truth is I really don’t need more dresses, so if I buy one, I better buy one that looks really good on me (or is super comfortable).
To be a true fashionista, you have to be enjoy the hunt. You have to be willing to try on a lot of stuff and walk out empty handed. Sometimes it’s the hunt itself that’s rewarding. Because anything worth having, is worth working hard at, right?
