Edgy and Cozy in Target Layers.

mentioned a trip to Target the other day. I wanted to look for some things for me and for some Holiday outfits for Vivian. I originally picked up 6 or 7 things for me, but was good and only ended up purchasing three: this duster plaid dress, some booties and espadrille flats (all on sale). I bought 2 Holiday dresses, an outfit and a set of pajamas for Vivian, though. I have seen these long hi-lo duster shirt-dresses and really wanted to try this one from Target myself, plus it is Plaid and in Black+White, which I love. I am not sure I pull off this style well though, you tell me?! Or maybe I am not too crazy about the dress layered up into a cozy Fall Look (which you can see each layer on the collage above). What do you think? Does the Duster Dress look OK for Fall? I think it would look super adorable on its own for Summer. I would belt it and wear some cute sandals with it. 

So for a brisk cold day yesterday, I layered a Lilac (almost a Light Gray) Cardigan underneath the Edgy Plaid Shirt-dress by Target and layered an Olive Green Puffer Vest over it. Last I added a Cozy Burgundy Scarf, also from Target and I was warm enough. I received this scarf as a gift this month, but I will talk more about it on another post. I love it though, since I am a huge fan of infinity knit scarves and already own a couple. I kept most of my outfit monochromatic between my dress, cardigan, booties and bag and added two of this Fall's biggest colors (two colors I happen to love) Olive *Dried Herb* and Burgundy *Marsala*.


Last but not least, two of the last prompts at "Create 28 Fall Looks" with Whitney, Casey and Carrie were Vests and Layers. This Outfit totally covers both, very well.

Have a Sweet+Scary Halloween Weekend!!

  3. I recognize that scarf ;) I think I would style this dress with a denim jacket and maybe belted with a scarf. My favorite of it is with the scarf! I was also thinking a military jacket would be cute, too! I love that it is longer in the back, very cute!

  7. I love this dress! So on trend and fun to layer. You've done a great job styling it with your cute boots. Target is always a dangerous place for me! You go in planning to buy one thing and walk out with three!

  15. Ahhh, lucky you! Little jaunts to Target!! This is going to sound pathetic, but living overseas one of the things I miss most is quick little runs to Target. Don't take them for granted! You are lucky!
