Target Haul: Dress #1 OOTD

Xhilaration Juniors Sleeveless Dress in Black/White Stripe

 Don't you hate when your shopping for new fall attire and you come out with clearance summer items you couldn't pass up?! That has been happening way too much lately! I came out of target with 3 dresses but I figured I could make them work for fall... possibly.

Today was a lazy Sunday. I was tired and feeling down about new guy and his lack of effort. I'm sure this chilly weather isn't helping either! Burrrr! Let's dive in and take a look at this first dress I picked up from Target on the clearance rack!

This dress was a little tricky trying to make it cold weather appropriate. Unfortunately this dress does not look that great with leggings since the dress falls a little longer, at the knees. I paired it with simple strappy sandals from H&M. I think I could have went with red flats and a pretty red belt :]
To keep my upper half warm I threw on a simple black cardigan from Zara.

I am loving black and white stripes! So simple but chic. The lines also make for a flattering figure. Horizontal on top and vertical stripes for the lower half which is nice and slimming. The hem line comes up at the sides and falls down in front and back. Super cute! Slight V-neck. Straps Cris-cross in the back (also super cute!). Comfy, soft, and I love the look.

Super pleased with this dress. I better wear it soon though before it gets too cold!

I  purchased this dress (Xhilaration Juniors Sleeveless Dress in Black/White Stripe) at Target for half price
It was on clearance for $12.48 normally 25.00 USD

I think it also comes in a black and white polka dot (wish my store had that one as well! :] )

Questions and comments welcome!
Hope everyone's Sunday was better than mine :]


  1. This dress is super cute and what a deal! I bet it would look great with some burgundy pieces like a cardigan or hat for Fall too.
