Why You Should Never Discount Target…Volume 2

Some things just cannot be communicated in one post. Why you should never discount Target is one of them. We love trendy fashion and we love a bargain so Target is the perfect retailer for us. And if you are attempting to see how many chambray items your closet can hold, today is your lucky day!

This chambray dress is close to perfect! Sleeveless, lightweight and flattering, it is suitable for almost any occasion. I love it styled here with my favorite Target slip on sandals, but I am also looking forward to dressing it up with some wedges. The bag can work on the shoulder or as a cross body. We think chambray calls for silver accessories, so just add hoop earrings and a few bracelets (similar at Target here). Sunglasses (similar at Target here) are a must on Texas summer days. Like we said…close to perfect!

Here’s another way to do chambray. It’s hard to find a better summer look than a chambray top and white jeans (similar at Target here). Add an off the shoulder detail to the top and you have combined one of this season’s hottest looks with a classic. I love adding a pair of really high heels to make legs look long and slender. (Of course, beer and wine limited to one drink!) Again, silver accessories (similar at Target here and here) and shades finish off the outfit, but add a colorful earring (similar at Target here) for some fun.

Who doesn’t love a summer maxi??? This one is offered in various prints and is a great summer option for a party or dinner out. I went very casual and chose black flip flops (similar at Target here) but a dressy flat sandal, heel or wedge would also look great. I love wearing a hat (similar at Target here) and thought adding one to this outfit was a great idea. A few gold bracelets (similar at Target here and here), hoop earrings, a long necklace (similar at Target here) and mandatory sunglasses (similar at Target here) complete the look. And don’t you love the tie in the back?!!!

Alison found this gem at Target and Tracy is definitely borrowing it!!! Not sure we really need to verbally describe this dress because the picture says it all. It looks great with these high block heels (Again…watch the consumption of adult beverages!) but any footwear choice, including sandals, flip flops or tennis shoes would work. The accessories (similar at Target here, here, and here) all look great, but we are especially fond of those fabulous earrings. Rumor has it, Alison has them in every color offered. And last but not least…summer so sunnies!

We are now ready for uber comfort. We know you have heard it before, but Texas is really hot. So outdoor patio outfits (thank goodness for misters) need to be comfy and cool. Chinos (similar at Target here) are a great alternative when the sun and my legs have not had much of a chance to bond. Due to the black and cream color of this striped tank, any color pant or short will look great. During the summer, it is a pretty good bet that my feet are in either tennis shoes (similar at Target here) or flip flops. Bracelets (similar at Target here and here), hoop earrings, watch (similar at Target here), sunglasses (similar at Target here) and messy ponytail are my standard to finish a look.

Surprise…more chambray! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This cami is perfect for those hot summer days paired with shorts, jeans, chinos or a skirt. And if you don’t already own a long cuffed white denim short, get in your car and head to Target right now! And pick up a pair of these slip on sandals while you are there!!! Get yourself some sunnies (similar at Target here), a few bracelets (similar at Target here and here), hoop earrings (similar at Target here) and a watch (similar at Target here) and you are patio ready.
