Right On Target

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been shopping more and more for clothes at Target. I used to be nothing but a department store kind of shopper, and I’m slowly evolving.

I’m already there picking up groceries and more, so why not stop in the clothing aisle for a tank top or two? And their clothing section is really stepping it up – every time I stop in there’s something cuter and cuter.

Plus, since I’m there so often, I find so many amazing deals! The sale racks there just can’t be beat. And that way, I won’t feel sad if it falls apart after a wear or two.

Case in point – this outfit. This heart tank? A mere $3. The pants? $6.48. And the shoes? A smidge over $8. An entire outfit for less than $20? Sounds good to me. That’s my kind of price point!

When you pair them all with a high end watch and bracelets, you end up with a high low look that works. Who says you can’t pair diamonds with Target apparel?

bracelets – Tiffany’s and Lois Hill, watch – Michele, earrings – Wild Ruffle

Where do you go to find amazing deals? Do you love to pair high low products like I do? Or do you shop for everything you own all in one spot?

Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Google+ before you go! We’d love to have you following along with all the Wild Ruffle shenanigans. It’s so fun!


  1. I so agree! It’s all about how you put it together…and in your case, mixing inexpensive pieces with classic pieces (tiffany, your Michelle watch)…no one would ever know!
    Love the entire look. And we are getting our first Target in January!

  2. I love Goodwill….I know, I know…Goodwill! YES! I have the best one by my house with amazing brands that are really inexpensive. I have an entire closet of Anthropologie from Goodwill! Oh and your watch is killing me.

  3. EEK!!! Jealous of those shoes…they are so vibrant and pretty. I love the mix of bright colours you’ve got in this outfit. I’ve been shopping more at Target lately too, they seem to have really adjusted their aesthetic/quality/prices to reflect what’s hot and the competition they’ve had recently from stores like H&M. I esp love their shoes.

    1. They didn’t shrink – but I find inexpensive pants have a tendency to stretch out more as you wear them, so I prefer that they’d shrink a bit with every wash.

  4. Wow I can’t believe you found all of that at Target for under $20. I do love Target though. The problem is it’s like a three hour excursion by the time I stop by the clothes, the shoes, the accessories and then get what I came for in the first place! Love this look. Popping over from WIWW.

  5. I love Target! I always find great pieces and I absolutely love these pieces you found – and all for $20! Amazing! I love looking at Plato’s Closet and Clothes Mentor for deals on cardigans, vests and other versatile pieces.

  6. I wish I could find deals like that at our Target. I love their styles but things get sold out pretty quick at our Targets. I shop Ann Taylor Loft for sales. If I buy off the sale rack with an additional percentage off, I am paying Target prices. I’m good with that.
