Merona Sleeveless Striped Dress ($29)

How cute is this relaxed spring dress?  I love the mix of colors and the subtle color blocking.  It’s a great weekend dress.  Also available in petite and plus-size.

Target has a nice selection of affordable, basic pieces.  I love this long sleeve dress with a black and sea foam color combination.  If solid basics are what you are after, this v-neck cap sleeve dress and this ponte v-neck dress with elbow-length sleeves are both under-$20.

So head over to Target, they have lovely dresses in all sizes.

    I was surprised about this as anyone, but many of the casual summer dresses that I’ve gotten the most wear out of have come from Target. I’m looking forward to checking out their line for this year. Thanks for the picks Belle!

    Great dress, I actually just ordered this dress online yesterday! I also ordered the sleeveless Merona Ponte color block dress as well. I have another Merona Ponte dress that fits well and still looks good. I get so many compliments on it…the price is just a big bonus!

    • Anna says:

      Is it bad that I basically want my entire work wardrobe to be ponte? I just love how comfy, yet structured it is.

  3. Yes, I love Target for summer clothes! Easy jersey knit dresses are perfect for weekends. I also buy sandals from Target every summer. I have had expensive (or at least mid-priced) sandals before, and they fall apart just as fast as the $15 pair from Target. DC is not easy on shoes. 🙁 At least I don’t feel like I’ve wasted money when I toss them in September.

    I just went to target on Friday of last week and bought a ton of stuff. They’re rocking it right now!

    Hi Belle – Wolford is on Gilt today! Flagging because I know you love those tights.

    The elbow-length ponte dress also comes in petites for those that are interested! https://www.target.com/p/merona-petites-v-neck-colorblock-ponte-dress-black/-/A-14924831#prodSlot=medium_1_3&term=merona ponte petite

There are two kinds of people in this world: People who eat cake on their birthdays and people who don’t.  And some of the weirdos in the latter category (I said what I said) eat pie as an alternative.  So if you’re a “birthday pie” eater with a late summer celebration coming up, may I […]

The Find: Bright and Striped

For the past few years, the wardrobes of many influencers have tilted toward the beige and boring.  I’m all for a good basic, but staple pieces can only take you so far.  Sometimes, you need to wear something that has a little something extra, and this sale-priced tee certainly does.
