Summer Outfits | Target & Nordstrom Edition

Good morning Friday!  We made it to another weekend! Thank you so much for all the love on yesterday’s kids summer routine post. It’s only been a couple days but so far so good! I’m crossing my fingers it sticks.

Yesterday, it was about 1 o’clock and I was all “James, come downstairs and check off some things off of your list” which prompted him to get off his computer and get a few things done. And I will say, encouraging James to exercise 30 minutes a day means I have no excuse not to myself!

After I showed y’all my vanity organization, I went ahead and did some more decluttering and got rid of a few more things!  It’s really refreshing to clean things up!

Today, I’m super excited to bring you a brand new Dressing Room post. This one was highly requested from many of you who wanted to see Summer items from Target.

I placed a huge online order and then happened to pop in the store last week and grabbed about 10 things off the shelf while I was in the store. There are SO many darling items at really affordable prices.  

In fact, this post got so long that I’m breaking it into two parts.  Today’s Part 1 will be Summer outfits featuring separates that you can mix and match with shorts, jeans and skirts. Part 2 will be on Monday with tons of fabulous dresses (think office, party, wedding and more!).

Let me know what you think of this post and where you want me to order from next!  I love hearing your feedback and it helps me plan future posts! 

TOP SELLERS

I love seeing what y’all like each week, and here were your faves!

SIZE REFERENCE : I’m petite, 5’1, 105, 34D.  I usually wear 0P or 25 in jeans and XS or 0P tops.

Accessories Worn: Gold Beaded Bracelets • Initial Necklace

One of the first things I saw when I walked into Target were these light wash jeans shorts. I picked up a size 0 and size 2, not sure how they would fit. When I got home and tried them on, I was surprised to realize they actually have a crochet him detail on them. I probably wouldn’t have picked that if I had noticed it at first, but it’s so subtle and really adds a fun touch to the shorts.

Top Fit: I’m wearing an XS, prefer petite in this brand because it tends to run large

The top is by Caslon at Nordstrom and they are known for adding super cute details to tops. This one has a crochet upper with a flutter sleeve and tie tassel. It’s a burn out style, so it’s on the sheer side, but not see-through.

Shorts Fit: I’m wearing a 0 and they have a comfortable high waist.  The 2 also fit, but were more relaxed.

It’s a little hard to tell in the photo, but this puff sleeve top is a really pretty shade of grey/green. It also comes in pink and a gray/blue.  It’s made of a breathable blended fabric with added spandex.

Tee Fit: Runs large, I’m wearing an XS

The snakeskin slides were so popular at Nordstrom that they sold out, but I found them available on sale HERE.  They fit TTS.

It doesn’t get more summer than this! This bright hues crewneck tee has Sunkist embroidered on the right hand side.

I found these Jean shorts at Nordstrom and I think they are a new fave! They have a 3 1/2 inch inseam, zip fly with a button closure in a medium wash with distressing. They fit true to size but are going fast! Not surprising since they’re under $50!

Y’all know I love a good summer sweater or sweatshirt and this one pairs perfectly with jean shorts. It’s 100% cotton and has darling embroidered stripes on it. It also comes in solids and camo.

These Sam Edelman slides were a favorite last year and I bought them again in the new style this year.  I LOVE THEM!  They are so super comfortable and really well-made. They run a little bit wide and stretch a tad with where. I went with my true size and have been fine though.

On sale under $60, regularly $100.

This sweater has a slouchy dolman-sleeve and a definite boho feel.  It would also be cute with a little front tuck, jeans and heels for a night out.

A big fat YES to this top!  It’s everything you want in your white Summer button down- easy breezy and perfect casual weekend style. Because it’s on the sheer side, definitely wear a nude bra or cami underneath. Or, size up and wear it as a swimsuit cover-up.  I love the texture on it and how chic it looks with the sleeves messy rolled.

Also, when you buy Treasure & Bond, Nordstrom donates 2.5% of net sales to organizations that work to empower youth.

The stud sandals are one of my faves from this year.  They’re also by Sam Edelman, have just a slight heel, but enough to make your legs look longer while still being comfortable.  They have gladiator straps and gromets that dress them up, and they look great with everything from shorts to dresses.

Sandals fit : TTS and so cushiony!

Y’all may have seen me in this romper on my instagram.  It’s so darling with stripes, ruffles, pockets and a key hole back.  It’s partially lined and attaches at the side with the tie belt.

Romper Fit: I’m wearing an XS, size up if between sizes.

I feel so fierce in these sandals!  The spikey studs are so cool, but they’re flat so easy to wear!

Are you busting out the white jeans yet? This is such a great affordable pair (40% off) that I highly recommend you add to your closet. They are perfectly opaque with just enough stretch and very flattering. They have a distressed hem that you can cut if you need to.

The ribbed tank is a cute halter style, but I felt like it accentuated my chest too much in the XS.  It’s probably better for my less chesty friends.

I picked up the sweater tank in two colors because I loved the styles so much. It’s a darling V-neck and so perfect for casual summers. The front holes are a little on the large side so you may want to wear a tank underneath. I’m just wearing a similar colored bra and think I can get away with that!

Here’s one way to mix and match the top from the first picture (seen in yellow above) with the white jeans.

I’m wearing them with these double strap sandals (40% off) that go with absolutely everything!  I’ve been wearing these sandals with shorts, skirts, and jeans. They have a comfortable block heel and make your legs look great!

If you liked that white button down from earlier in the post, you may also like this striped one! The colors are really pretty in person and it also has that same relaxed style. You can also machine wash and dry it.

I love the pretty blue and peach colors in this boho style top, plus the embroidery is too cute! It’s a hi/low style, so the back is longer than the front.

What a fun peplum style top! It’s a darling take on the traditional white eyelet that is so fresh for summer. I like that it has elbow length sleeves and would be perfect with shorts or a skirt too.

This floral top Reminds me of the islands! It ties around your neck in the back and is fully lined. I like it with these jeans and also with the green shorts below.

These pull on shorts are awesome!  They are a gorgeous linen blend with a high waist and 3-inch inseam.  They even have pockets! I just wish I could have sized down because this pair felt a little big on me.

I was also a fan of these olive green denim shorts, also from Target. They have the perfect amount of stretch with a high-rise and rolled cuffs.

I thought that beaded bag was fun!  It would be so cute with your Summer dresses, even though it doesn’t hold a ton.

I can never get enough white eyelet, especially during the summer! I love the scalloped detail on the sleeve and hem on this one. It’s also 100% cotton and fully lined. I had to do a double take that I got it at Target, but I did! It also comes in a pretty dusty rose color and a navy blue.

I know how much y’all appreciate seeing workwear, and I thought this leopard top would be perfect with the Amazon paper bag waist pants at the office. Of course, the top would also be super cute for a night out with jeans and heels or even flat sandals and shorts on the weekend.

Oh man these are good pajamas!  The jogger pants are a terry fabric in a pretty rose shade with pockets and an elastic/drawstring waist.  The tank says Sunday, but I’ll be wearing it every day of the week!

    I just had to leave a comment to let you know how much i love your blog. I happened upon it by chance probably 6 months ago. I am a single mother raising 3 great kiddos all the way in Minnesota. I work as a nurse so most of my outfits are scrubs 🙂 You have given me inspiration for cute outfits (be it casual or for dressing up), house decor and organization. I look forward to seeing what you post each week. Thank you and keep up the great work. You do make a difference!
