My American Eagle denim review was well received so I thought it would be a good idea to do another similar post and this time highlight some of my favorite items recently found at Target. I also thought it would be a good idea to give this type of blog post a “name” or a title that indicates the type of post it will be so that you can make the decision right away whether or not you want to “click” and view sub-bar fitting room selfies or not….so “Fitting Room Style” is now the indicator. You. Are. Welcome.
Dusty made sure to inform me about how much he likes it when I do this type of post…my guess is because it gets him out of having to follow me through a parking lot snapping photos of me in outfits, he says, “Great idea Sam, I like when you do these, I bet you like doing these too, you should do them more often!” (point taken).
I was just in Chicago for the Create & Cultivate conference and it was a grand ole’ time, my hope was to get this blog post up before I left but I was having some difficulties with my hosting site and things were all sorts of wacky and weird and my tech-savvyness or lack there of wasn’t skilled enough to fix it. All is well now and things are back up and running like normal.
I was telling Dusty yesterday that he hasn’t done a guest blog post for me in a while and that it would be really fun if he did another round of “Ask Dusty”. He kind of mumbled something like, “oh hmmm…” and then that was that and I think Meet the Press came on TV and he turned in to a news watching coffee drinking zombie and that was that convo. Better luck next time. But maybe soon? I will keep bribing him with food, that usually does the trick. To be continued…
Mossimo Convertible Sleeve Blouse
I loved this blouse! It was flowy and light, the neckline was great and I felt it could be dressed up or down. I wasn’t aware the sleeves had buttons and could come undone to be longer, but that would just be a bonus! In this photo they are paired with my Tomgirl Denim Jeans from American Eagle.
Score: 8 out of 10
Merona Printed Romper
I am not a huge romper fan, I don’t own one, and can’t quite fall in love with one. This romper was the closest I’ve been to “liking” one. I feel like they are best worn by girls without a bubble butt. Not to mention the drawstring sort of accentuated the fact that I had two brownies and a glass of milk before heading to the fitting room. For the right person, who loves a romper, this would be a great choice!
Score: 4 out of 10.
Merona Strapless Gauze Maxi Dress
If Little House on the Prarie had a modern day come-back this dress would be be worn by Laura Ingalls. And I like it, not to mention I love me some Little House on the Prairie. Just don’t expect me to milk any cows wearing it. I digress…this lovely dress was airy, and comfortable and I apologize for the bunching of the granny panties in the back mirror of the photo, ladies, I strongly suggest you wear something a little less “bunchy” in the underwear category if you decide to purchase this dress. The material isn’t super see-thru which is nice because sometimes white dresses do that. And I hate it. But not the case here.
Score: 6 out of 10
Mossimo Sleeveless Leisure Dress / Mossimo Denim Vest
I am really a fan of the sleeveless dress being worn underneath this denim vest. No other thing to say, other than this combo rated high!
Score: 8.5 out of 10
Mossimo Denim Jacket / Nitrogen T-Shirt Dress
I paired this really great T-shirt dress made out of comfy cotton with a denim Mossimo jacket and I loved it! This denim jacket has a really great wash that I like however, denim jackets are always questionably comfortable…they can be a little stiff, this one wasn’t amazingly comfy but wearing the t-shirt dress underneath made things even out, making this outfit a win in my book!
Score: 7 out of 10
And a shot of the t-shirt dress on its own for your viewing pleasure… errr not.
Then things started getting really crazy and I paired the t-shirt dress with the denim vest and that was love too…what do you think?
Merona Woven Back Flowy Tank / Mossimo Drawstring Trouser
This combo is a favorite by far (but there are more favorites below)! I love love loved (you get the point) this white flowy tank it was very flattering and provided me just enough coverage to feel like it wasn’t too see-thru. The drawstring trousers were amazing too…I can’t say enough good things about them other than I felt like they were trendy and cool without making me look like MC Hammer.
Score: 9 out of 10
I then paired it with this lovely green vest that I sadly can’t find online so I’ve located a similar one for you – here.
I then mixed in these black Mossimo High Rise Jeggings and they rock! I totally love them and wish I would have snagged them when I was there. I liked that they had distressed knees but in a way that wasn’t frumpy or too much. They looked sophisticated enough to dress up or down.
Score with the jeans: 9.5 out of 10
And why not try the denim vest on while I am at it! Behold, another lovely combo.
Black Sweater / Mossimo Mid-Rise Jegging
This sweater tunic is great but I couldn’t find the exact one on Target’s website so I found a similar one. Everything about a tunic is wonderful. I love that they can sort of hide your hips and other not so flattering areas. They look great with anything, especially “skinny jeans”. I also liked the mid-rise jeggings a lot and would highly recommend them if you are looking for a pair of distressed jeans.
Mossimo Boyfriend V-Tee
I’ve actually owed this t-shirt for a while and a few others just like it from Target. I love them, they are SUPER comfortable and inexpensive, not to mention if you order up a size it helps to give that casual more relaxed look. I am pretty sure Target was selling these for $5 / piece at one point during a sale but are no more than $9. So keep your eyes open! I had purchased similar t-shirts from an unnamed more…*cough* expensive store and let’s just say they weren’t nearly as great as these from Target.
T-Shirt Score: 10 out of 10
