Waking up early for work is always a little bit easier when I know I have a fun new dress to wear. I’m sure just about all of you reading this can agree.
I have a bit of a Target addiction these days, which I blame on years of seeing other bloggers wearing all sorts of cool outfits that somehow incorporate find from Target. I’ll admit, I was always a bit skeptical as to how a store that so closely compares to Wal-Mart and Zellers (Canadians will know what that is) was so fashionable.
Even though I make somewhat frequent trips to the US for shopping, I never made it a priority to hit Target. After all, big box stores tend to stress me out and I passionately hate fluorescent lighting.
I wasn’t even that excited to make my first trip to a Canadian Target a couple of months ago. Naturally, it only took a matter of seconds after walking into the place that my opinion completely changed. As soon as I smelled the fresh Starbucks’ coffee brewing, I knew I was in for something great….or, dangerous.
Of course, there’s certain things at Target that will just never appeal to me, but I love going there for fun pieces that I can mix into my wardrobe for a season or two. I used to primarily check out H&M and Forever 21 for those cheap, fun, trendy pieces, but I’d rather shop at Target now because the experience is much more enjoyable.
I picked up this dress a little while ago and felt today was the perfect day for it to make it’s debut…with the red shoes I mentioned in this post. If you’re on the edge of your seat about whether or not I kept them both, I’ll fill you in. I only kept these red shoes. They’re not as comfortable as I thought, so they aren’t overly versatile.
Cardigan: Urban Outfitters
Belt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Ralph Lauren via The Bay
Do you want to go to Target right now? I’ve been told I’m a bad influence…
