Summer Style from Target

Hello! How is your week going? I swear the summer weeks go by so quickly.

I laid low most of this week, but that forced me to tackle my closet. I’ve been needing to purge my closet for over a year. If you’ve seen any of my Insta stories, you may have seen that I’ve made some major headway.

Well, I had to make room for some of the favorites I’m showing you today. I typically buy some new summer clothes in June and then promise Travis I will slow my roll in July. I just like to have a few summer staples to get me through the hot months as well as vacation.

Here are some of my recent Target finds:

I’ve already shared these pjs (top // bottom) with you as a Friday favorite, but here they are again! I love the shade of pink, and the material is so soft. I actually sized down in these, and they come in a few color options.

I needed a few new tanks, and I love the cut of this ribbed tank. I picked it up in navy as well as light green and blue. (There 13 color options!)

Before vacation, I wanted to pick up one more cover up, and saw this terry tank dress. It was with the swim suits, so I assume it can be a cover up or a dress. The terry style reminded me of my childhood swim cover ups!

I was in need of a new sports bra, and this one is cute, comfortable, and supportive. I have it in mauve and teal.

Of everything I’ve purchased recently, this dress was my only “impulse” buy. I thought it looked like a dress that could be dressed up or down…or even used as a cover up. It’s light, flowy, and perfect for summer. I sized way down to a small.

A tank dress is always my “momiform” for the summer. Also, I will wear tank dresses (long and short) to school with a cardigan. I love that you can wear sandals, flats or tennis shoes with them. This one comes in a variety of colors, but I love the blue!

Ok…time for the real dress of the summer! Amy has shared this dress a few times on her blog which prompted me to pick up the mauve color. I ordered it in a large and a medium.

This is the medium, so I returned the large.

I loved this dress so much that I was curious about a size small to compare, so I ordered it in green.

This is the small:

….and then I decided to keep both! Like most decisions I make with dresses, I love to buy something that can be dressed up or down, and that I can wear to school. I would throw this on over a swimsuit too if needed.

It looks like there’s limited stock and colors, but the white seems to stay in stock, and as I type this, the mauve has some sizes left.

None of my shoes are from Target, but here are the links in case you are interested!

  • flip flops -( I have had these for years…and have two pairs: rose gold and steel gray)
  • thin strap sandals – (I’ve shared these before –that they are so comfy, but sometime make a weird airy sound when I walk)
  • faux Birks – (Hadley has these in white, and has worn them faithfully for two years. I bought the rose gold pair last summer and wear them ten times more than my real Birks. I sized up to 10 instead of my regular 9)
  • braided heel sandal– These will be my sandal of the summer. These are stylish and comfy.

Target and Amazon continue to be the real MVPs in my life! What are your summer “go to” items?

See you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites.

  1. Ok, all of these are winners! You make me feel better because I was starting to think I had a Target problem! Their stuff is so good this season! All of my dresses can be worn to school with or without something over them. I feel like I’m set for school and I am loving the ease of throwing just a dress on and being done. The mauve looks amazing on you! The green too! They wash and dry well, too. By the way, my clear flat sandals also make the air sound, so I’m guessing it’s any sandal with that cushion bottom! Now I just think it’s funny. You are set for shoes, too. With your new cleaned out closet, you will find it so much easier to get dressed! Now I gotta go check my Target app…

    1. Really as I created the post, I was like “woah” I’ve been to target too much 😆 I really do shop a lot in June and then not much again until I “need” things for fall. I love both the dresses!

      1. I was definitely feeling that way with all my dress and swimsuit purchases and returns. I returned more than I kept, so that’s good. I am getting better about not keeping things that aren’t perfect! As you have seen, I have already gotten lots of wear from my dresses. I think they will work even in fall! I am the same, though. I get excited for new things in June and then slow down!
