Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! By the response to yesterday’s Drugstore Beauty Buys and my recent Amazon Fashion Finds, I’d say y’all are really on-board for the affordable!! And I’m here for it, too…I can’t get enough of the fabulous finds for less.
One retailer in particular has been requested over and over, so today I’m here to deliver! Yes ma’am, we’re talking Target today!
Honestly, I often steer clear of Target, but only because it gets me into trouble every.single.time. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve managed to spend under $100. It’s almost impossible!! Surely I’m not the only one?!
To protect my pocketbook, I stuck with mostly online for this scouting session. Their website pics don’t do most pieces any justice, so much of my order came as a pleasant surprise, and is a good mix of transitional basics and stand-out pieces.
Sugarplum Sizing: I’m 5’4″, 125-ish pounds (#covid), and my standard size is XS/0 and a 26 jean.
Sweaters & Cardigans //
Our temps dropped to the 50s yesterday, so of course we all jumped on the Fall bandwagon! Granted it will be short-lived, but it’s sure got me excited for the months ahead. This cozy pullover sweater is a poly/acrylic blend that’s super soft, with a relaxed fit. It’s got a slight high-low hem, giving the backside a little coverage, and comes in a slew of solids and stripes.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS
Here’s the same sweater in fun stripes…this angle shows the hemline and dropped shoulder.

Cardigans are a Texas girl’s best friend in the early days of Fall, since it’s not uncommon for a day to start brisk and end sweltering. This long cardigan looks straight out of Madewell, but for a fraction of the cost. It’s super soft, and a comfortable medium weight that will take you to Winter, too. I love the longer length and deep pockets, plus it comes in great stripes and solids. Which stripe combo is your fave…I can’t choose!?

Tees & Tanks & Tops //
I’m living in cute tops and tees these days, especially since my top half is on Zoom much of the time! I was instantly smitten with this fluttery top, and immediately wanted it in all the colors! It’s soft and light, but pairs well with transitional shoes like slides and flats, so I can get many more months of wear out of it. The body is a slight bell-shape, for a forgiving fit, and wears well tucked or out. The neckline is elastic for easy on-and-off.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small.
See how versatile this cute budget top is?!

Sleeveless season may be winding down for some, but I actually love them for transitional seasons when paired with jeans and slides or flats. This neckline is crazy flattering, and the material is soft and super-stretchy. The white was a little on the sheer side, but the darker colors were perfect, and the price is a steal!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, def size up.
Leopard is still going strong, and remains one of my go-to fave patterns. This top is an a-line shape in a crisp poplin-style fabric that has just enough volume. The neckline is elastic with a cute flutter sleeve. It also has a tie on the back, but is easily removed if it’s overpowering for you.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small
Another fun option, this top is equal parts floral and leopard. It’s a heavy linen-blend, with exaggerated flutter sleeve and peplum hem. I’d pair it with black ankle jeans and flats, too.

Dresses, Skirts & Shorts //
This combo falls under ‘cute tops’ as well, because I can’t get enough of either piece! Up first, the top is actually a sweatshirt material, making it super comfy. It has a banded hem for a casual untucked look, but also works as a tucked-in dressier top. The pink leopard is too cute for words, don’t you think!
The shorts are a favorite find, for sure. They pull on with a wide, elastic waist, and soft chambray material. They’re a great cut-off short alternative, and so easy and flattering to wear.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small top and small shorts.
Here’s my fave new top again, this time paired with a classic pleated midi skirt. It’s a pull-on style with elastic waist, and a sturdy weight for dressing up, or keeping it casual with sandals. It comes in several solids, as well.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small top and XS skirt.
Meet my new Fall house dress! Well, once I order my correct size. I love everything about this easy dress…the color, the print, the balloon sleeve and open neck. Plus, it’s got pockets! It’s lightweight, but not sheer, and cute with sandals, slides, or booties.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but def need an XS.
I think I’m having a moment with emerald green and rust hues this season…I’m continually drawn to them! This dress is no exception, and I adore the colors and pattern. It has a comfortable elastic waist and feminine gathers at the neckline. The leg slit gives it a little sass and keeps it youthful.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, but go up one if you’re busty
Loungewear & Pullovers //
Surely I’m not the only one still living in loungewear, right?! This pink is so fun, and the pullover hoodie is comfy with jeans, and super cute paired with the matching shorts for a fun set. Plus, I love any chance to wear these sneakers!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small pullover, but need an XS. The shorts are a small and fit well.
And finally, I love the preppy meets sporty vibes of this sweatshirt pullover! It’s thick and soft, with a slightly cropped fit. It has two cute stripe options, good luck choosing your fave!
Fit Tip: I sized up to a small for a relaxed fit.
And as if Target weren’t killing it already in the Fashion department, their new Magnolia and Threshold decor selection is an absolute homerun! I’m most-excited for the brand-new Studio McGee Collection launching this Sunday. These pieces are sure to sell-out fast. I’ve already got this table and these baskets on my list!
one. Counter Height Stool // two. Round Wood End Table
three. Rectangular Decorative Mirror // four. Large Seagrass Table Lamp
five. Caned Door TV Stand // six. Woven Storage Ottoman
seven. Lumbar Pillow // eight. Wood Arm Accent Chair
nine. Rectangle Woven Tray // ten. Wooden Bowl
So much good stuff, right?! It’s no wonder I go overboard every time I head to Target. I’m ordering these mugs and this taper set (only $25!) for a little Fall decorating. This oversized mirror has an unbelievable price, too.
What about you…is Target your weakness, too? What awesome Target finds have you discovered lately? Happy weekend, lovebugs!
PS…Did you notice the Kendra Scott one-day sale?! Save 20% with code KSFALL, today only! I’d grab my little heart necklace or these statement hoops. I just ordered this layered necklace and these drop earrings!
