Great Fall Finds from Target!


I was with my mom a few weeks ago in Oklahoma City. We were there for a wedding and ended up having to make a Target trip to pick up a few essentials that we forgot (I needed nail polish, ok!). Of course, because it's Target we ended up leaving with a whole basket of stuff that I then had to fit into my suitcase for the flight home. 

One of those amazing finds was this Boyfriend Blazer that I am in love with and this cute, cozy wrap which will look so great with my Stuart Weitzman Highland boots! I will also probably go back for this cropped olive jacket! One of the coolest thing about this line is that it's super inclusive and most of the looks come in plus sizes, so everyone can take advantage of these awesome look-a-likes! Of course, these Target pieces aren't the highest quality, but to get all of these pieces for under $50 it's a great way to add some trendy pieces to your closet!

The Boyfriend Blazer: I've fallen in love with the look of a boyfriend blazer, black jeans and Chelsea boots. There are some super expensive versions out there (hello, Stella McCartney), but for a tenth of the price of the super popular Anine Bing version this is a great option. I bought it in a size 12 so it would be really oversized. I plan to push up the sleeves for a more casual look. I love that even though there's a red stripe running through it you can wear it as a neutral and layer it with almost any top in your collection. 

The Tweed Coat: I have been lusting after this Ted Baker coat all season! However, I can't justify spending $600 on a coat when I live in Texas. There just aren't enough cold days to really enjoy this beautiful piece! Also, for that much money I would rather invest in a neutral color that will never go out. (It's still on my wish list, though!) So, this coat isn't a one-to-one dupe, but when I walked up on it in the store I immediately thought of the Ted Baker style. The colors are similar and so great for fall. It's unlined, but maybe that's better for the mild winter months ahead. Either way, you can get a very similar look with this cute tweed coat! I bought a small and it's just a tad oversized, but I might keep my eye out for a medium to get even more of that overcoat effect.

The Wax Jacket: I own this Barbour coat and it's one of the best investment pieces I've ever purchased. The Fall and Winter runways showed a lot of classic Americana looks and while Barbour is technically a quintessential British brand, if you throw this jacket on with your favorite jeans, a pair of rain boots and a cozy scarf you have best apple picking outfit ever! It's amazing that A New Day has a much cheaper option on the market now. Real wax coats take a lot of maintenance and I bet the Target version is a lot easier to maintain. It comes in a few colors, but my navy jacket has never let me down. 

The Black Booties: Once again these aren't as good of a dupe as I'd like, but they are basically the baby of a Stuart Weitzman Grandiose boots and the super popular pearl-heeled style. Obviously, for under $40 these A New Day booties aren't real leather, but the chunky heel and crystal embellishments will ensure that you're hitting two big shoe trends this season. Also, the star-like pattern on the heel screams "celestial" which basically is the biggest print trend right now and appeared on multiple runways, including Dior. I haven't tried them on, so the comfort level is unknown, but they're dying to be worn to your holiday parties!

The Satchel: If you have the budget and you're looking to add a black bag to your collection I wouldn't hesitate to grab this one. It's a lot cheaper than some of the higher end designers, but the shape is classic and the mixed materials make it look so luxe. However, for $38 you can get the same shape, plus add the snake-skin look and a gorgeous color! I have a Kate Spade Croco bag that I bought a few years ago and I was worried it would be hard to carry because of the color, but I break it out every fall and winter. You can instantly elevate an outfit by adding a colored bag. Plus, I love both of these because you can wear it as a crossbody or carry it by the top handles for a more classic look.

Not that you needed any more of an excuse to give Target all of your money, but this new line makes it even more tempting!

Love you lots,
