Cute Target Find Under $40 + IG Story Target Haul

Hi friends! Happy Happy Friday!

I wore this outfit in Boston a couple weeks ago when I was there for a few short hours before heading to the airport to catch a flight to New York City. Victoria had never been and we left wishing we had chosen to stay for at least one night so we had a little more time. Next time! We found this super cute stoop on our walk back to our car. It made me really wish I had a stoop to decorate this time of year! It looks so fun!

Our first stop in Boston was a Super Target as Victoria had never been and wanted to see what all the rage was about! She was very impressed and went home with a few goodies for herself and her fiancé. We were going to do a Target haul on Stories for you guys but we only had a couple of hours in Boston and we were STARVING when we left. We were borderline hangry so we opted to do it later and then never got around to do it. When Victoria and I are together, we are always so focused on either exploring, talking to each other, and getting the content we set out to get while we are together so sometimes stories inadvertently gets put on the back burner! Sorry guys! :\

To make up for it, tomorrow, I’m going to share a mini Target haul over on my IG stories. I got some really cute things and I’m excited to share them with you! Because you read my blog, you get a sneak peek at one item before the IG story fam does! Congrats! It’s this super cute utility jacket! I absolutely love the rust color. I saw it in an XS and snatched it up so quick!

HEADS UP | More insights into fit and details on the items I’m wearing in this post can be found in the Editor’s Notes at the end of the post!

What are y’all up to this weekend? It’s a crazy weekend here in Jacksonville as it’s Florida / Georgia weekend but this girl just wants to catch up on sleep but also get back on East Coast time. I think I’m going to go to bed really early tonight.

I apologize this post is getting up to y’all super late but better late than never! I have tons of content to get out to y’all … I didn’t want to push it to tomorrow! Stay tuned for a new post tomorrow! It’s gonna be a good one … one y’all have been asking me for for awhile! It’ll likely be up later in the day but I’ll see y’all on Stories tomorrow for the Target haul!

Target Haul

Here are the items I featured in my Target Haul on IG stories on Saturday:



Editor's Notes

• This utility jacket comes in four color / pattern options and is under $50! It runs big but it’s a good thing because you’ll be layering pieces underneath it anyway. I’m wearing an XS.

• This slouchy pocket tee is a great basic and comes in tons of size and color options! It’s only $19!

• My black jeans from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are finally sold out. Consider this pair and this pair instead as likely to fit similarly & have the same great quality being that they’re by the same brand. Go one size down from your normal!

• My blanket scarf has sold out in the combo I’m wearing. I recommend this new scarf by Free People. It’s so big and super warm! I just got it in the tan color!

• I wore this hat NONSTOP on our trip! It goes with so much!

    I’m a BIG target fan (well, who isn’t?) so I loved this post!! Also, I know you updated your website a while back, and I’ve been loving it! But, something about the colors in this post and how it was laid out on the home screen looked especially amazing! Just wanted to let you know! <3

      Aw, thanks Devin! I really love when the feature photo just ‘goes’ with the overall theme of the site! I try for it to always be that way but sometimes, some photos and their backgrounds are just more fitting than others 🙂 xo.

    I feel like the LV bag is the focus of all the pics, instead of the jacket 🙁

      Hi Lauren. I’m sorry you feel that way. I don’t always know ahead of time what the ‘theme’ of the blog post will be when I take outfit photos. Sometimes I do but, in other cases, like this blog post, I didn’t know that the jacket was going to be what I highlight. We always do our best to get a good variety of shots of the outfit so that no matter what the topic ends up being, there are images that speak to that. Sadly, it seems we dropped the ball, which we never like to hear. If it helps you at all since these images didn’t give you enough information re: the jacket, I did highlight it on my Instagram Stories if you want to watch the Try-On highlight on my Instagram profile. xo!

    Hey! I typically use the LTK app but decided to try shopping from the blog and when I click the images under “Target Hall” ……It either brings me to a pinterest page or a blank Target page. It may be a user error but just wanted to let you know!

      Hey Lauren! Ah, wow! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. It’s super important to me that you have a seamless experience when you’re trying to shop my looks, whether it’s on my blog or Instagram. I just tried clicking on those items on my laptop and on my phone and didn’t have the same issues. I will say that the Pinterest thing has happened to me before on my laptop. I would suggest trying to tap on the bottom of the photo versus the top. We have cleaned up the code on the backend as best we can so that this doesn’t happen but sadly it does still happen from time to time. When I click on it on my phone, it takes me to the Target app. Maybe try downloading the Target app and see if that helps. Let me know if it does!
