Target Haul: A New Day Mustard Yellow Cardigan

Target Haul: A New Day Mustard Yellow Cardigan

Hi! As you can tell from yesterday’s post, mama went a little bit crazy at Target. But, that’s just my cross to bear, I suppose, and each thing I got was well worth it. One of my favorite things that I got was a cardigan by the relatively new Target brand, A New Day. It also happens to be in my favorite color, other than black, MUSTARD YELLOW! Take a look and let’s discuss:

Mustard yellow is a color that every red head should have in his or her arsenal. There is nothing that makes your red locks pop quite like this color and I wear it as often as I can. Therefore, this gorgeous hued cardigan was an absolute must. I love that it’s long, but not too long. Don’t get me wrong, I love a duster cardi as much as the next fashionista, but there’s something about a cardigan that hits just below the waist that is so flattering on every figure.

Cardigans of all levels of heaviness are appropriate and amazing for fall in their own right, but I much prefer a lighter one over something super chunky. This A New Day number offers the option to layer, which is my preferred autumn style. I also adore the sweet, fine ribbed detail and the double dots traveling down the back of the cardi.

This sweater will instantly transform any autumn OOTD from “oh” to “oh yeah” in a matter of seconds. Button up a thin flannel, throw this little number on over it, pair with black or dark rinse skinnies, and complete the look with your favorite boots. Rinse. Repeat.

What is your favorite fall color? How would you style this cardigan? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

New Clothes!

New Clothes!

Hey everyone and TGIF! I recently added some new clothes into my wardrobe thanks to Target, Kohl’s, and TJMaxx. I initially wanted to go shopping to add some business casual clothes into my collection for my internship and work but that didn’t stop me from picking up some steals for summer, too! Take a look at my latest purchases:

What & Where:

  • Olive green Pink Republic sweater: Kohl’s
  • Emerald green Candies cardigan: Kohl’s
  • Pretty Rebel coffee tee: TJMaxx
  • Mossimo cloth shorts: Target

After scrounging through my wardrobe for clothes to wear to do family interviews for my job, I came to realize that I’m severely lacking in the business casual department. It’s not like I want to show up to a family’s home looking stuffy but I also don’t want to look like a twenty-one year old running errands for the day. I thought that the perfect remedy for this was some lightweight sweaters and cardis to throw on and not burn up in, considering summer is fast approaching in Ohio.

The olive green sweater is perfect because it’s a three quarter length sleeve and the material is light enough that I’m not going to sweat through it by walking up someone’s driveway. My favorite is the emerald cardigan, though! Emerald green is my favorite color to wear because it accentuates the pasty pale and red hair. My new cardigan is great for just throwing over a top and going out the door because it instantly makes an outfit look more put together. Last week, my best friend came over and I was wearing my cardi and she just so happened to be wearing the exact same one except it was grey. That’s BFF telepathy right there! I couldn’t handle the cuteness.

With summer time just along the horizon, the one thing that I really need is SHORTS! I have the hardest time finding shorts that I like because everything is high waisted and that fit is just not flattering on me and 99% of the population in the slightest. All I want is a simple pair of normal/low rise black shorts. Is that too much to ask? Apparently the answer is yes because not one store had what I was looking for. I love the little cloth shorts that I got from Target but I’d really prefer some shorts in a non-cloth fabric if you know what I mean. SO if anyone has some suggestions on a good place to buy shorts, please let your girl know!

Finally, my fun new coffee t-shirt! While shopping at TJMaxx, I came across this cute little top and it was only ten dollars! I just had to get it, considering it was such a steal and I’m coffee’s number one fan. This shirt reminds me of Brandy Melville designs which I love so I was happy to add such a sweet and cheap new top to my collection! Thank you, TJMaxx. 😉 ❤

Hurray for New Clothes! Who’s been doing some summer time shopping? What is the best place to score some new warm weather looks? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Target Haul

Target Haul

Hello everyone and happy Hump Day! I’ve been on a bit of a shopping hiatus these past few months thanks to my college tuition, my car, and purchasing holiday gifts. Last week, however, I finally got some fun new pieces to add into my wardrobe, compliments of Target. Take a look and then let’s discuss:

What I love the most about these pieces, starting with the button down, is that it’s a smart shirt with an added surprise. Usually I would never pick something like this out for myself (all black everything, please) but when I saw the back of it, I just had to try it on. I love anything with a peek a boo back because I like to show off my tattoos so the surprise sheerness was what made this shirt a definite contender.

I’ll admit, I was slightly nervous to try this shirt on because I didn’t want to look like a freaking goon but I was so pleased with the results! The top in itself really isn’t very edgy, which is what I like. However, I was able to alter the sweetness of the shirt with my piercings and tattoos and that turned it into a very cool and unexpected piece to add into my wardrobe. This button down will also be great to wear year round which is another bonus, in my opinion.

The black cardigan with white crosses decorating it was obviously a no brainer. It has everything that I like on it – my favorite color, my favorite pattern, and just the right amount of rocker edge that I love. As soon as I saw the cardi, I knew that I would be purchasing it. I’m actually wearing it right now as I type this! My style is very distinctive, so when I find pieces that scream out “Lil Red”, like my new cardigan, I just have to splurge!

Currently, I’m rocking my new cardi with my snakeskin patterned black skinnies, a graphic white tank, my black cross dangle earrings, and my Michael Kors combat boots. I plan on wearing my button down with my mustard yellow suede skirt from H&M, a cool pair of heels, and a sharp little jacket for a fun take on a woman on the go outfit. I can’t wait!

I’ve been very bored with my wardrobe as of late and have fallen into the pattern of wearing the same things over and over again. I definitely needed a clothing pick me up and my new button down and cardigan were the perfect pieces to do that with. I’m looking forward to incorporating both tops into my day to day outfits to freshen things up and make my old clothes feel like new again. Thanks for the cute new clothes, Target! ❤

So there you have it, my latest Target Haul! Where is your favorite place to score some new clothes? Who has recently had a haul for themselves? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
