Target is often referred to as a “one stop shop,” “a little slice of retail heaven” or “therapy” perhaps? No pressure, there, Target!
So I wanted to give you all a recap of the Target favorites that I have featured on the blog this month. Some that I love and can’t wear enough of, and then some that didn’t work out because of the fit or quality.
Now, you may be thinking, it’s Target, you get what you pay for. It’s not going to be great quality. Well, friends, you are wrong! You can still find good, quality pieces if you know what to look for.
As I have talked about before, I love to create a more balanced style with my wardrobe, mixing high and low price point items. The key to this is knowing what to splurge on and what to save on and that may different for you and for me.
For me, I don’t mind invested in the more classic pieces that I know I will wear year after year. For example, a good coat, handbag and shoes is what I will splurge on.
Maybe for you it’s sunglasses or a good pair of jeans.
Regardless of what it is, remember to stay true to your style (especially lifestyle) and not what the latest and greatest think you should wear.
So when shopping at Target (or as my buddy Kristen Wigg might say, “Ter-get”), you need to be sure to know what you are looking for. Yes, I know, it’s hard, friends…you go in with a list of items such as detergent and shampoo and you leave with a whole wardrobe for you and your kids! The struggle is real, believe me! I have been there! But I have learned from my mistakes and when I learn something new, I like to share it with my friends!
When shopping at stores like Target, you want to be sure you are not buying something that well, looks, low quality. Feel the material, it’s it too thin, are the buttons too large, is the pattern too loud. When you buy at places like Target, Old Navy, H&M, or Zara, you usually want to go more neutral or classic style. Keep people guessing or surprised where you got this top or pair of shoes.
My point is, don’t make it obvious and you can see with what I kept and things I just had to let go even though I loved the look, it was maybe not for me. Perfect example, I talked about this backpack, love the color just not the stitching on it.
Other “not for me” items…
These are my yeses!
