Hi! While I love Target, it is normally not the first place that comes to my mind when I want to do clothing shopping. However, I was so impressed with their selection during a quick Target run this past week for a few odds and ends and I am looking forward to going back in June once they open their fitting rooms! There were so many pieces that I had my eyes on but I didn’t want to deal with the hassle of returning the items that didn’t work after trying them on at home. That didn’t stop me from purchasing a darling dusty lavender cardigan, though, since I could just slip it on over what I was wearing! Check it out:
During my run through of the Target clothing department, I instantly fell in love with my new crocheted cardi. I have been obsessed with anything lavender ever since buying my floral lavender skirt and crop top set from Altar’d State because I have never had anything of that color in my wardrobe. When my hair was just red, lavender never used to look good on me and would really wash me out. But once I replaced the yellow in my hair with pink, it opened up so many new colors that I never dreamed of wearing before.
All of these color options that are available to me now like blue, pink, and lavender has made these first few shopping trips since the beginning of the pandemic super exciting. It makes me want to try everything on and I can’t wait to update my wardrobe accordingly once more fitting rooms in stores are open. For now, though, I think I am off to a great start thanks to my Altar’d State Haul and this sweet sweater.
The color was, obviously, a major selling point of this cardi for me as well as its shape. When it comes to cardigans, I usually opt for longer ones. However, my A New Day cardi hits right above my hips and that length combined with the roomier sleeves offers a silhouette that I didn’t have anything like.
The first thing that came to mind when I saw my purchase was how perfect it would be with my lavender skirt and top set during a breezy summer evening. I also think that this cardi will be so cute paired with dark denim shorts and a crop top, which is an outfit that can easily be transitioned into the fall with tights!
These past few shopping trips have been just as magical as I imagined them while in lockdown and it feels so good to have fun with fashion again. 🙂
Which colors look the best on you? Which colors do you avoid wearing? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
