Ah ah ah, You Better Learn Your Lesson Yourself

I went to Target with $48 on a gift card. We went to a Target across town, because Nathan was shopping for 45s at the used bookstore over there (he has a DJ gig on Halloween at the Lakewood Lounge, come see him and Marjorie spin!). This was the most well stocked Target ladies department I have ever seen. I could have dressed in clothes off the racks for a solid month and loved everything. In the end I came away with this dress and sweater combo…

Oh my. I love it. It’s girly and lacy and beautiful, but it feels like pajamas. I know it lacks a wait, but sometimes I am OK with that. I know my waist is there, I don’t need to define it as long as you can see my legs.

Comfort wise, it was like wearing pajamas, but I also felt super dressed up. Dressed up and comfy? That is pretty much always my goal!

I love this! That dress is fantastic, and I love the details on that sweater.

Love it! Does Target ship to Europe? I'm gonna find out now :p

Sara said...

Love. That dress is fabulous. It would also work really well with your military-style jacket, I think. Sort of the tough, yet girly look.

I just did some damage at Target myself.

That dress is so pretty on you and I LOVE the tall socks! I have boots just like those and I can never figure out how to wear them... I'm gonna have to go through your archives for some inspiration!

Alannah said...

Such a great outfit...love how you wore the socks and the boots to toughen up the lace dress!

Linda said...

I love this look like I love a good chocolate bar when I am sad. So basically you are sweet, you give me a sugar high, raise my libido and make my ass bigger...

Ugh... Erin you look great! You pull off monocromatic ALL grey better than anyone girlfriend! WURK IT!

Rebecca said...

That is a perfect fall look. I like the gray and brown.

I love how you did the knee socks with boots and echoed all the gray colors in the outfit! Such a pretty dress - yay for Target giftcards!

Great look. Isn't it amazing how Targets differ from location to location? Some of the stores have such a huge women's department. You look like you scored!

That's what would make my ribbed, big knit cardigan better - the buttony things that turn back the front (that made sense right?). Such a good outfit! Will you try it with other colour socks too?

Lovers, Saints & Sailors said...

Yup, totally jealous of this find.
Nice work!

CMH said...

I can totally see that dress over some black leggings & with a jean jacket!

Ms. Cee C said...

I love pajama-feeling ensembles. And this one is FAB! I've got that bag in bright red and adore it ...

Love the dress AND cardi! They both have such nice details and comfort is a plus!

This is very cute. I have a $25 Target giftcard, so I will be on the lookout for that dress. Adorable!
