I'm having a love affair....

Don't worry, it's not what you think. I am in love, people, but it's not with a person (well, ok I am, but that's not what I'm talking about right now). It's my love affair with Target. How does one place have so much goodness within it? How does one place end up making me spend close to $100 almost EVERY time I go there? Ok, that part I don't really love, but I DO love the tons of stuff that I can get from there for $100. I love that I can get toilet paper, a card, food, furniture, dog stuff, and clothes all within one space! Especially the clothes--I've found so much good stuff for work, or every day wear there over the past few years. 

So, this post is dedicated to the recent items that I have loved from Target!
C9 Reversible Mesh Shorts
These fun shorts are reversible, and on sale they were $10. Normally $12.99. A steal. Super comfy and the fun colors are great! And, what's better than two shorts in one!
C9 Seamless Cami Bra
Again, a bra in fun colors (even more options than the shorts), SUPER comfy, and only $14. I got one, and because it was so comfortable, I went back and got two more. Love!

Mossimo Supply Co Juniors Bootcut Pant
I LOVE these pants. I have a hard time finding work pants that I feel comfortable in all day long and I've found that the Mossimo Supply Co pants fit that bill for me. Previously in the year, I'd gotten brown, black and khaki. I saw these beauties the other day when I went to get toilet paper (obviously got sidetracked) and couldn't resist getting them for $24.99. (I also may have just purchased another pair on the website since they had more colors...shh, don't tell)

This dress might be one of my all time favorite purchases from Target. When it's on, it looks like it should cost at LEAST $60. In reality, it only cost $25. I wore this to a friend's bridal shower, and got more compliments on this dress than I think I've gotten on almost anything else. Here's an idea of what it looks like on:

And they have cute shorts in fun summer colors, like these guys I purchased at the beginning of Summer:
I think I got these for $18. Super comfy, but they look super cute!

I've even found some really cute earrings at Target, and never for more than $13-15 (and that's usually for a set of 3). Here are a few that I've gotten:

Sometimes it takes a bit to find a good swimsuit amongst the chaos, but I've found two suits that I have come to love (and also get compliments on). These were purchased last season or the season before, but still cute, and really reasonably priced:

So, as you can see, I love me some Target, especially their clothes. Sometimes it's hit or miss when you go there, but other times you can find some really great gems that would cost you $50+ elsewhere for a fraction of the price. On a teacher's salary, I appreciate being able to find good clothes at a reasonable cost. And I take advantage of it whenever possible!

I'll make an admission here, and please don't judge me....the last time I walked into Target, I realized that the shorts, shirt, and bra that I was wearing were ALL from Target. Ok, judge me if you must, but I still looked cute, and that's what counts! :)

I promise I buy things that aren't JUST from Target (altho from this post you can't really tell that), but I do love a good bargain. And if it looks cute, and feels comfy, I'm ALL over it!

Do you have a love affair with Target, too? Do you now want to go to Target and find some more goodies like I do? :) Have a great Monday, even if it doesn't involve a stop at the Targ! :)
