Merona T-Shirt Blouse ($19)

Target is having a buy one item, receive 50%-off a second item sale.  While you might not think of Target for work attire, they have some solid, inexpensive basics in their wear-to-work shop.

This navy top in a crepe-like fabric would look great under a jacket or tucked into a skirt.  I also found this silky button-up shirt in a selection of prints.   If it’s a 3/4 sleeve you’re after, this blousy top comes in navy and a bold orange.  I’d also wear this sleeveless top with a ring-neck out to dinner or under a cardigan for Sunday brunch.

For dresses, I found this textured knit dress with a v-neck and a a-line skirt.  I think it would look great with a belt and brighter cardigan.  This sleeveless sheath is also a great option for layering under blazers and sweaters.  They also make a great ponte pencil skirt.

Target is also a great place to find inexpensive blazers.  I own this collarless blazer and I love it.  I’m also considering buying this drape collar jacket in black.

Target also carries most of its misses items in plus-size and petite, which makes it a rarity in the retail world.  So don’t miss their selection of items from those shops if you’d like a few inexpensive pieces to bulk up your work wardrobe.

As you may have noticed, I do not have the most creative personal style. I am here for basics. But what I’m always looking for is basic-but, a piece of clothing that is basic but just a little different.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
