These cooler mornings have me ready to dress for fall. That being said, our extended forecast has highs in the upper 80’s going into next week. *Sigh*
Oh the irony of sharing my tidy closet yesterday and now the new items that I’ve purchased recently from Target and Walmart.
Well, over Labor Day weekend, Target had a 30% off sale, so I went ahead and snagged it in green and gray. ($17 each!)
Well, if you give a mouse a cookie…I noticed the boots on the model, and figured they had to be from Target. I found them, and they were also on sale for $30. They are a western style boot, so I wasn’t sure if I’d like them, but *newsflash* I do! I got them in tan which seems to be very limited in stock, but there are other colors. The tan, cognac, and gray are a suede material whereas the other options (black and off-white) appear to be leather.
After my closet clean out this summer, I did make note that I was due for a new pair of tall boots. The pair I parted ways with were about ten years old. I also got rid of a couple of pairs of ankle boots, and decided to give these a try in tan when I saw they were also on sale for $28. They also come in gray, cognac, and olive green.
Please excuse the wrinkly dresses, but I just try things on and snap photos when I have a few extra minutes.
Army green color dress with ankle boots:
Gray dress with tall boots:
No picture, but I wore the olive colored dress to school on Tuesday with a cardigan and sneakers. It was a good put together but comfy outfit.
I usually wear a 9, but sized up in both to a 9.5 because of the narrow toe. Both fit perfectly.
Again, I’m not one to “power shop” like that, but I had a feeling the dress and the boots were going to be “hot ticket items” this fall. Plus, with the sale, I was saving money, right?!
The dress comes in pink as well!
Here it is paired with my Target ankle boots:
I wore the dress yesterday with some gold sandals that I’ve had for years.
I really wanted the popover top in gray or green…
but I bought it in pink as the other two colors never seemed to be in stock.
I think it will be perfect with jeans, workout shorts or leggings with a tank.
Now if Mother Nature would take the hint, I’d love to be able to wear the boots and popover without breaking a sweat!
See you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites.
