Amazing Tar-jay finds

Hello lovelies!
Hope all of you had a fabulous weekend! We had a great time in Chicago, despite all day rain on Sunday (perfect day for shopping, no?! πŸ˜‰  I find a few cute things which I’ll share either in my ootd or some other way.
I think this is the only fitting room picture I took.

 Love these light colored jeans and the sweater, both from Zara. 

(the pockets had studs around them)

Now onto Tarjay.  I stopped to pick up the new L’oreal lip stick (the color I wanted was sold out). But there is always something else there. I’m sure you all know this about Target already.  I was a good girl and picked up only two skirts (that’s probably because I just saw two more online that I’d like to add to my closet). The prices are great, that’s what what I love about Target. I can’t find the other pencil skirt I picked up online. It’s the same color as these pants – cherry peony.
Here are some fab finds for less.

1. Pleated Maxi skirt – my local store didn’t have it but I saw it online and LOVE this skirt! . Comes in 4 colors. Add a plain tee and a denim jacket and you’re good to go (I’m thinking Fall style already)

2. Polka dot pleated skirt – also comes in pink and black.

3. Leopard print skirt – comes in quite a few colors.

4. Pleated skirt in black- comes in 3 more colors (one of them is a floral print I think). The waist trim is faux leather. Cute!

5. Soft scoop neck sweater (great alternative to J.Crew tippi sweater) – comes in ton of colors.

6. Boyfriend Cardigan – comes in ton of colors. Great to wear with leggings too.

7. Color-block Cardigan – love the Fall colors. Nice and long, which makes it also a great sweater to cover your tush while you wear the comfy leggings this Fall.

8. Jersey Dress – Orange flame color would transition nicely into Fall. With boots and jean jacket perhaps (everything is going to be with boots and denim jacket, isn’t it?!).

So how can you not love Target!?! Impossible. I find their clothing to be pretty good quality. I haven’t had issue with anything I’ve bought there so far and I own quite a bit from Tarjay!

Have you found anything at Target lately?

    Great Target picks (and I love the Zara pieces too). I have some of their soft scoop neck sweaters from last year and want to get a couple more; they're great. Love the striped dress too; in orange, it's perfect for all.

    I recently found a striped dress I love. I plan to wear it with sweaters belted over it as a skirt and with a denim jacket, scarf, and boots for fall.I love the color blocked cardi!Oh, and I just ordered two great pairs of Steve Madden look-a-like boots for fall.

    Lilly, I just purchased the leopard print pencil skirt and it fits amazing. I actually lowered the hem @ home to give it a little vintage vibe and loved how it turned out ;-)Dayi

    I got the floral mix version of the black skirt with the leather band, I love it – I sort of want to match it with a black and white striped shirt…

      Sunday was a yucky day. We started walking towards the Zoo in the morning and decided to skip the Zoo, which I'm glad we did. I went to Zara, H&M, J.Crew and Bloomingsdale. Didn't do a ton of shopping (tried to be good πŸ˜‰

    I love the accessories at Target! The one closest to me is like 15 miles away so we don't go too often, but when I do my bank account gets hit in the face with a baseball bat.

    I <3 Target too…. My favorite find was online – found a kimono style maxi dress for $24 abour 2 years ago. Also got a pair of faux suede above the knee boots for about $12. Target is awesome. πŸ™‚

    I heart Tarjay as well! I finally found a chambray shirt in small! I had been looking for a while but, my store never seemed to keep them in stock. Anyway, I'll have to stop in soon and get some of those cute skirts and cardis for Fall. I totally agree about everything going with boots and a denim jacket =) I hope you have a good week!

    I literally cannot wait for Target to open here in Canada early next year. For now I run to border whenever I can and buy my guts out. That maxi skirt is it and yes, everything with a denim jacket and boots.

    Love your finds! I was at Target last week and picked up the boyfriend cardigan in Teal. I had been reading about their colored cords in other blogs so, I went back yesterday hoping to find the colored cords (fit no. 6) in the blue, but none my size. I picked the green cords though, they really are more of a yellow. Not sure if I am going to keep them. But, for the price they are really comfy. I also picked up the leopard print slipper loafers.
