Target Finds

It has been HOT in Texas lately.  I’m talking…
it feels like THIS!!  I’m all about cover-ups and tank tops in the summer.  But at this point, I’ve reached my max.  It is time for some cooler weather, scarves, and booties.  Unfortunately, here in Texas I don’t see relief in sight.

Sunday at church one of my girlfriends, Amber, had on the cutest tank top.  I asked her about it and guess where she told me it was from…  
I mean.  Don’t we all love Target?  I went in for a couple things yesterday and walked out with so much stuff in my cart that all my kids had to walk!  #howdoesthathappen

Ryan gets it.  For some reason Tab doesn’t.  hahaha!

Thanks to my girl, Amber, I made a couple trips through the clothing department and thought I’d share a few of my favorites…
This flannel shirt went home with me.  It’s super thick (not thin and cheapy feeling at all).  I love the buffalo plaid on the inside and it was plenty long.  Sometimes button ups like this can be too short on me, but this shirt wasn’t at all.  The sizing on some things were all over the board.  I got an XS in this shirt.  Unfortunately, I’ve spent tons of time searching Target online to give you a link and it’s NOT on their website anywhere!!!  Boo!

This tank was the one Amber was wearing at church.  It was very Anthropologie-ish.  So cute!  But again…MIA on the website.

I remember last year sharing similar mixed media jackets and not wanting to spend much on one.  This one was perfect at under $35.  I got a medium in this jacket.

I had to show you my little Vanna White.  🙂

This long cardigan was cute, but it was a little too small.  I needed a medium.

**A little addition to this post**
I text messaged Amber to make sure I could reference her.  We discussed our Target trips and she was so sweet and sent me a couple of her Target finds to share with you.

Do I have the cutest friends or what??  Her picture is WAY better than me holding it up!  haha!  Isn’t that tank cute??  For size reference, she got a medium.  She said she would have preferred a small, but they only had a medium so she made it work.  I LOVE this tank!

SO cute!!  And…it looked great with her cute Kendra earrings!

And Amber scored this popover.  She has to dress up for work everyday, and this top is perfect.  It can be dressed up or down and will go with tons.  I’m loving her cute wedges!!

Love it!!  Adorable with white, chambray, denim, or black!

Amber, thanks so much for helping me out today!!  This was fun.  Maybe we should do another virtual shopping trip together again soon.  XOXO

I thought I was going to show you some super affordable cute goodies today.  It would have been so easy to shop from home, but it just didn’t work out that way.  Sorry, ladies.  I guess now you should go into Target for some toilet paper and try a few of these on along the way.  Ryan will understand.  🙂

Happy Wednesday, Girls!!  XOXO

    Amber's tank is darling! And I LOVE that first shirt on you! I just got a black and white shirt like that with a contrasting fabric inside and it looks so cute cuffed! p.s. Target's website makes me ragey.

    I've found some cute clothes at Target lately. I agree, the sizing is all over the place, which doesn't always make a girl feel good! But the price tag sure does 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

      Erika Slaughter said:

      The sizing was all over the board! It probably had something to do with juniors and women's but I couldn't tell where one ended and the other began. Ha!

    I LOVE me some Target!! As a stay at home mom to 2 little girls, it is basically my home base! Ha! A little tip for finding things online…if you download the target app, there is a scanner on it. You can scan items when your in the store (like if you want a size they don't have in store or something) and it will show you the online item. Trying to find something on Targets website without scanning it can be like a needle in a haystack. Hope that helps!

      Thanks Robin!! This is so good to know. I flipped through every Merona shirt online and that plaid was no where to be found.

    Love so many of the items but my favorite is the jean jacket. Do you happen to know if that one is online? And if not what brand is it at Target? Thanks so much!

      Erika Slaughter said:

      I couldn't find anything online. Seriously I would search "women tops" and little boy tees would pop up!! It's Mossimo. 🙂

    My kids asked when we were walking in the other day why "Target" is named "Target" so my husband quickly replied: "because it targets our bank account", and then changed it to "actually, it targets our marriage!" Haha!

    I resisted trying that tank on in target last week, I may have to go back bc it looks so cute on! I loved it in the store! I live in Arizona, so we are in the same, hot, boat as Texas! However, this summer has been more humid than normal, so I think that's worse than our normal hot hot! I too in looking forward to fall weather (but it doesn't cool down & stay cool here until Halloween usually, oy!) & cute, fall clothes!

      The tank is Xhiliration, the plaid is Merona, and I don't know on the cardigan. Sorry!

    I got the tank this morning (thank you!!) and saw an XS at the Target off of Park and the tollway. Just guessing that might be the size you're looking for!
