Target Try On Session

Hey friends!  It has been awhile since I shared a Target try on session, but I finally had a chance to get there this week.  I have a few fun items from Target that I want to share with you.  They are all linked below + some additional pieces that I didn’t get to try on, but I think that you will love!


This cute high/low top by Universal Thread at Target is amazing!  It comes in three colors and is under $20!  I am wearing an XS here or a slightly more fitted look.  This top looks great with a pair of skinnies or wear it with a pair of flares for a cute retro look and feel.

Here it is in green and I’m wearing a small for a slightly looser fit!

This adorable ruffle sleeve top has a more cropped fit.  I am wearing an XS.  This would look perfect with some high waisted jeans or a pair of denim cutoffs.  You could pair with white pants/denim as well for a great wear to work outfit too!

BONUS – there is a similar version for your mini me too!  I’m linking it below!

So I failed to snap a pic of myself wearing this cute ruffle sleeve tee, however I’m linking it for you here because it’s so versatile!  You can wear it with a pair of shorts on the weekend, or put it with a skirt for the office!

Skirts and Dresses

This little blue wrap dress also comes in black!  It runs big so I would suggest sizing down.  I am wearing a small here, but an XS would fit better.  It is not see through and it’s a work appropriate length!  You could pair this with some flat sandals or a nice espadrille wedge for a more polished look!

Wrap Dress

I am loving the Universal Thread brand at Target! Their dresses are well made and the price is perfect!  I have linked a few others below that are super cute and work appropriate!

This one looks darling layered over a white tee!

I actually already own this one and I love it!  I wore it on Easter with a pair of block heels.  Fits true to size (I have an XS).

This strappy striped beauty would look darling with a denim jacket and a pair of espadrilles!

If you’re looking for a pop of color, then look no further!  This pleated coral skirt is the right amount of punch.  I paired it with a simple white tee because the skirt speaks for itself.  It fits true to size (wearing an XS).

A New Day has several other adorable skirts as well.  This vibrant handkerchief hem striped number would also look great with a plain white tee!

Button front skirts are on trend right now, and blue and white stripes never go out of style!

That’s a wrap gals!  What is your favorite Target brand right now?  Tell me below!

Madewell Try-On Session

Hey gals! Happy Thursday! I recently had a fun little getaway to Boston with my husband while he was there for work.  I got the chance to shop ALONE and hit up Madewell for a try-on session.  Grab a cup of coffee for a quick read (and perhaps a little shopping)!

Studio ruffle hem top Cecilia stripe

I’ve had my eye on this top for a few weeks now.  The colors are so sweet and the little peplum is perfect.  The price is more than I normally spend on a top, but it’s currently on sale! I sized up in this as the buttons were a little snug in my normal size.  I am wearing a SMALL.

Striped velour tee dress

I am all about the stripes, and this dress gets bonus points because it’s velour too! The navy and white stripe is perfect for now with some little booties, or wear it in the spring / summer with sandals.  I am wearing an XS in this dress.

Eyelet waterlily ruffle dress

Ladies, if you’re looking for a flattering black spring / summer dress then this one is for you.  It’s on sale for $30 too!  Several sizes still remain, but hurry because this will sell out fast!  I’m wearing a 0.

Denim wrap top

This top is SO good, and I really wanted to buy it but couldn’t justify the cost vs. wear ratio.  I felt it was a little too low cut to wear in the office, and I didn’t feel as though I would wear it a ton outside of the office because it’s too fancy.  I loved how it looked with black denim, and it would be fabulous with white denim too.  I’m wearing an XS for reference.

Denim utility zip front skirt

This skirt comes in black and a dark denim.  I would prefer the dark denim but tried on the black for size (wearing a 25).  I would pair this with a chunky knit sweater for now with some tall boots, but in the spring it would like great with a little tee tucked in or knotted with some flat sandals or a block heel.

Micro pleat top

The micro pleat top comes in five colors and is under $40! This little shirt is so cute with a pair of high waisted skinny jeans, or you could wear it with some flares and a chunky block heel.  I am wearing an XS for reference.

Velour Tee

This rust colored tee fit a little snug because I’m wearing a size smaller than I would normally wear but they didn’t have my true size.  I actually liked this style a little more fitted.  Sadly I cannot find this exact same tee online, but I’m linking a similar velour option.  Perhaps your local store may have the one shown in my picture (it’s under $30).  I am wearing an XXS for reference.

Nordstrom Dressing Room Diary

As you may or may not know, I work full time as an ecommerce marketing specialist so my lunch breaks are about the only time I can make it to the mall ALONE.  This week’s dressing room diaries / lunch time try on sesh is brought to you from Nordstrom.  The purpose of this try on session was to scope out some comfy, casual tops that could be worn to work, on the weekend, or for traveling.

First up, the Madewell Whisper Cotton V’Neck Pocket Tee.  These are the softest tee shirts and they come in several colors and sizes XXS – XL so there is a color and size for everyone.  I am wearing an XS for reference.  I love to tie these in a little knot too and wear them with high waisted jeans.

Next up in this Nordstrom dressing room diary session is the B.P. Funnel Neck Tunic.  I have on an XS here.  This would be so cute with some moto leggings for a super casual look OR with some ripped skinnies.  It’s slightly longer in back which is nice for the leggings option.

This cute B.P. Striped Peplum Tee Shirt is so soft!  It comes in three striped versions and two solid colors.  I am wearing an XS for reference in the black and white stripe.  This is perfect to throw on with jeans and flats OR you can dress it up with some booties.

Who’s loving or has tried this cropped sweatshirt look?  I tried on two different brands for reference (Leith and B.P.) and I’m not sure how I feel.  I think I’m leaning towards no for me personally. . . I feel a little bit like a toddler in these.  I like the sleeves, but something about the material and the boxiness is just not for me.  If I had to choose one, I would pick the Leith version.

I will close out this Nordstrom dressing room diary with this plaid beauty!  It’s the B.P. Plaid Ruffle Hem Top.  The colors are festive and perfect for all of your upcoming holiday activities.  The back detail is so pretty too!
