Target Try On! (2-21-18)

If you follow my instastories, you know that I stopped into Target yesterday for a little try on session. As promised, I wanted to post everything here on the blog so it's easier for you all to shop! The purpose of a try on session is to take the work out of it for you!! You can see what these items look like on a REAL person and not a model with some fancy photoshopped background. My sizes are listed below for reference and I will tell you how each item fits (true to size, runs small/big, etc). All (affiliate) links to items will be directly under the photos or you can shop from the widget at the bottom of the post. 

Most of the items I tried on are from Target's new brand, Universal Thread. It kind of reminds me of a Madewell or Abercrombie with the muted tones and boho/casual style. Some items I loved and others, I wasn't fond of... But, most of what I tried on I really liked! So, here are a few winners below...

I am 5'2"
I wear a 4/6 pants or 27/28 jeans
I typically wear a small in tops, but may size up to a medium for fit if it is a button up

So, without further ado... Here are my iphone photo, horrible dressing room lighting, try on session pics in all their glory!

Outfit 1: I loved this button up! It says it's 'red' as the color on the website, but it definitely is a pink and white stripe. I love that you can tie it in the front for a fun look too! It would be really cute for spring with white jeans or shorts as well! I am wearing a size small in the top. 

I also LOVE these dark wash jeggings! I am wearing a size 6 short here, but could probably go with the regular length, so I would say they run true to size. They are SO soft and comfy! Feel like leggings and look like jeans! 

I'm also wearing these booties (run true to size) in all the photos which are so cute and a perfect transition shoe into spring! 

Outfit 2: Probably my favorite and all of these items I will most likely purchase! I love how soft this button up plaid shirt is! It's also not heavy fabric, so it could definitely transition into spring and would look so cute with white jeans! I am wearing a size medium here (they didn't have any smalls) and I actually like the oversized fit of this one!

Wearing the same jeggins and booties as above...

Outfit 3: I love how soft this denim shirt is and I love it paired with these pink jeans.  I am wearing a size small in the top, but probably would size up to a medium for a better fit. I LOVE these pink raw hem skinny jeans! They are high waisted too, which is a plus! I am wearing a size 8 in the photo below (they didn't have my size) so, I would probably order my true size 6 in these (runs true to size).

Outfit 4: I was skeptical of the tie front cropped sweater, but after trying it on I am a believer! This sweater is so soft! And I actually love the tie front detail as well!

Outfit 5: Moving on from the Universal Thread line, I came across this cute little tank! I love how soft it is (I obviously love soft clothes apparently 😂) And perfect for the gym, running errands or just lounging! I also love it paired with this cropped zip up hoodie and my high waisted zella leggings!

Outfit 6 & 7: Both of these outfits are totally out of my comfort zone! I thought I would give them a try and you know what... I actually like them both! I think kimonos will be the new 'cardigan' of spring for me! And I'm loving this bell sleeved embroidered top! Would be so cute with white jeans for spring too! I am wearing a size small in all tops and XS/S the kimono.

Outfit 8: Last but certainly not least, I grabbed this dress last minute as it caught my eye! I was a little skeptical with the off the shoulder (sometimes I think off the shoulder can be a bit annoying), but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this little number on! I love the bell sleeves and the cinched waist! I thought it went well with the booties too. Would be so cute for Easter! 

Of course, I didn't love everything I tried on... So, I will leave you with a few 'misses' ....

Believe it or not, these 2 tie front tops are all the range with a lot of other fashion bloggers... They just didn't do it for me! Could be because I have a short torso and wide hips, so this style isn't necessarily the most flattering on my body type. I also only found an XS in the plaid top and probably needed a small for better fit. The distressed high waisted shorts probably would have been better if I sized up! I'm wearing my normal size 6 in these and they were too tight and short for my liking! 

Phew! That was a lot! I hope you liked this post and that you found it helpful when shopping online with Target!

This post was in NO way sponsored, by the way. I just love these types of posts and follow a lot of bloggers on instagram that do these 'try on sessions' on their stories and I always find it so helpful when trying to shop online.
