Easy Spring Style Awaits
Who hasn’t gotten that Snapchat from a BFF with a picture of a Target store and the message “Pray for me. I’m going in.”? Turns out, I should have sent that Snapchat out last Wednesday. It started innocently enough, as trips to Target always do. I was buying socks for my dance competition. Seriously. Socks. That’s all I went in for. Well, one end cap led to another and soon I’m checking out and forking over a way bigger fraction of my paycheck than just socks would have cost. Honestly, the abundance of cute, wearable, style-forward spring fashions is really what did it and I have no regrets.
How to find the best styles for less
I found several spring dresses that were under $25. I immediately saw the potential to style these frocks to transition from early spring all the way into fall. They’re versatile enough that I can imagine wearing them to a wedding, to work or for random other fun occasions. I feel a responsibility to impart the tricks to buying clothes at Target which are 1. check the fabric content and buy only pieces that have a high-quality look to the fabric (viscose and rayon are two fabrics the retailer does well), and 2. ask yourself if it’s a unique piece that’s not just a copy of other designers. But in real life the process of buying at Target goes more like this: step 1: see cute item. 2. check price tag and see ridiculously affordable number. 3. buy.
Accessorize and Go!
After I got my shopping scores home I tried styling them and was pretty pleased that they could be accessorized into versatile outfits that looked nicer than they should for the price I’d paid.
I just want to note that the shoes and accessories in the photos are not from Target or sponsors, they’re just things I pulled from my closet on whim for a spur-of-the-moment style shoot. If you want to know where I got something in a photo, comment below or message me.
So there you go–you don’t need to spend a lot to look great for spring. Happy spring shopping!
