Okay, I had no idea that Saturday Night Live had a Target skit. Probably because this Mama can never stay up for it. I love Kristen Wig and so when I was “Googling” some Target things, this came up, along with some of her hilarious YouTube SNL skits that are not the most appropriate to put on here, but hey, if you want to go check them out, by all means.
This week, for my Target Tuesday edition, I wanted to focus on dresses. It’s always good to have a go to dress in your closet that can be worn casually or dressy.
So here are my favorites…
How sweet is this dress! I could see this being worn to a luncheon, or on vacation. With this chambray and lace shift dress, I would dress it up by adding nude or blush color open toe heel shoe and pretty clutch in gold or maybe another color depending on the event. Because of the lace neck, you want to keep the jewelry simple. For a more casual look, I would add your favorite gold or taupe sandals and market tote like this one or this one and you are ready to go. One and done!
Everyone needs a simple black dress in their wardrobe! I love that this one has sleeves and with this length it allows you to really elevate your style. You can add a striking, statement necklace or leopard print pumps, but not both.
If I were wearing this to the office, I would add a pretty camel color jacket or blazer for a more sophisticated look.
While I realize this length is not for everyone, I have found another go to black dress.
The sleeves are so fun, yet elegant at the same time. Not sure that makes sense, but you will see what I mean once you check this dress up close and personal. Depending on the occasion or event, you can easily change up your look with your accessories, adding a turquoise necklace or a pretty vest like my favorite Target one so it doesn’t take away from the pretty pleated sleeves.
I love a good shirtdress and this one is the perfect transition piece as we go into the spring season. Because of the tie in the front, I would keep my jewelry simple. Then, if you wanted to add some color or pattern, you could do that with your handbag (or clutch) and shoes.
For the office, I would add a navy blazer or cardigan.
Then, as you take it into early, Fall, you can add a leather jacket and boots.
Simple, sleek, yet feminine is how I would describe this dress. I love navy because the color is flattering and it’s versatile. I would definitely wear this style dress to church, a wedding, a luncheon or to the office. This dress also comes in other colors such as bright blue or lavender so take your pick! Just make sure you choose a color complements the rest of your wardrobe and stays true to your style.
Speaking of style, you know how I mentioned in my last post, I wanted to add more color to my closet to elevate my look…
While the color of this dress may be a little more bold than I would normally go for, I am going to try it. I already have shoes and accessories that can easily go with this dress and the style of the dress is definitely more me. Simple! And because of the dress’ simplicity and color, you can add some fun sandals like these and/or accessories to make it more of an every day look.
So when shopping for your go-to dress, just remember to stay true to your personal style, what makes you look good (that’s a given I know) but feel good while wearing it. Because your clothes only look good when you feel good.
