Target Haul: My New Favorite Fall Pieces

I recently shared a Target Haul on my Instagram Stories and I figured I would also officially style those pieces on here too! I really love these pieces and they are great additions to my fall wardrobe. Each piece is great for multiple occasions, which is why I chose them in the first place. They are also fairly classic styles that could definitely transcend more than a few seasons. Keep on reading to see how I styled each piece and follow me on Instagram to see the try on in my highlights @karenmauritzenn. Everything is linked!

Outfit 1

The first piece is this super cute dress. I initially love the shape of it and the sleeves, but once I got it in the mail I also loved the material and the fit. The material is a thick denim material so it’s great to transition into the fall. I really love a shift style dress so the fit was great and the puff sleeve detail really sold me! I paired it with these old polka dot mules from Something Navy x Nordstrom and I promise this outfit will be on repeat all season!

I got this feminine black top because it was versatile and stylish enough to wear for work but also going out with friends or on a date with my handsome man. It’s got a wrap style detail in the front which creates the illusion of a smaller waist, so it’s super flattering on all body types! It would look great with black trousers for work or with jeans for date night. I’d throw on a leather jacket for an evening out and be all set. I paired it with some medium wash raw hem jeans from Topshop and these strappy sandals, but you can do a lot more with this top.

I saw this little puff sleeve t-shirt in stores one day and couldn’t stop thinking about it so I went online and ordered it about a week later! I think this is a perfect casual top to pair with jeans to go out with friends or a casual date night, but when paired with trousers would be great for work also. I’ve shared my love for these orange trousers a bunch of times also so I decided they would look so fun with this top and a simple pair of suede heels. These tan suede heels are on clearance for less than $10! This whole outfit is from Target, actually!

I was in desperate need for plain long sleeve tees so I, of course, looked at Target. They have the best quality basics for the best price. These tees are only $10! I got this top is this pretty orange and an oatmeal color. I also already had it in black and white from last year. I decided to keep this outfit casual with a pair of light wash straight leg jeans from topshop and a pair of sneakers from Target also. These never go out of style and are also $10!

I have been scouring the earth for the perfect tan cardigan and I finally found it. The material is high quality and super soft so I was very impressed with the quality. I kept this really casual because this is definitely the most common way that I’d style this cardigan. I just threw on a simple white tank and my favorite leggings and white sneakers and now we have a LOOK. Cute for grabbing coffee or heading to the pumpkin patch!

The Best Neutral Work Outfits For Fall

As you know, I love a good neutral outfit so I was inspired to share some of my favorites for work in the fall. Honestly the fall colors are really what got me, so these are a pleasant balance of fall and neutral colors. I’m REALLY looking forward to wearing these over the next few months! Keep on reading to see some of my fall outfit ideas for the office.

Outfit #1

I raved about these pants in my last post and guess what, they’re back. I’m head over heels for these pants, they are so dang cute. If you buy anything this fall, please buy these!! I paired them with a taupe sweater I got from Old Navy a few years ago and some nude heels and now we have my favorite ~lewk~ for fall.

Outfit #2

Guess what! These are the same pants, but in orange because they are the best, linked here. If this is unclear, please see paragraph above. In the fall, orange is a neutral and I don’t care what you say. I paired these with this leopard print sweater (that is also a neutral, don’t @ me) and some white heels for a perfectly put together fall inspired look.

Outfit #3

I have a feeling, I’m going to be very into all black outfits this season, so here’s my fall inspiration for it. I love this outfit, because if you switch out the shoes for heels or mules or booties, it can easily go from day to night without being too scandalous for the office.

Outfit #4

A sweater dress is a great way to stay cozy, but put together for fall. Plus these are SO easy to come back now a days. I remember a few years ago struggling to find them in stores! This one is from Target last year and I’ve gotten a ton of use out of it. Plus the gray color is super easy to style with any type of shoes or jacket.

Outfit #5

For casual Friday, I went with a super casual look, jeans with a button down and sweater over. Groundbreaking. It’s such a simple outfit, but you either love it or you hate it. Personally, I like it but you can always remove one layer and get a totally different cute outfit out of this look. And both are work appropriate!

How To Style Pink For Fall

Now that we’re really into the swing of things for fall, I thought I’d also get into styling for fall. One thing I’ve been really into has been pink for the fall. Pink is the kind of color that, no matter the shade, is always associated with spring and summer. I’m here to show you that it can be worn all year round! Keep on reading to see how I style my pink pieces for the fall.

Outfit #1

I got this pink cardigan from the September 2019 collection of Something Navy because 1) I’m obsessed with pink and 2) felt I needed a new cardigan. This one comes in a dark gray and a pretty rusty orange color (that I’m very interested in). My favorite way to style button up cardigans is with just a cute bralette under and jeans or even trousers if you’re ballsy (not for work unless you’re SUPER ballsy). Today I went with some medium/dark wash mom jeans and a pair of white sandals (similar) since the weather is not REALLY that fall yet.

Outfit #2

These pink trousers are very spring if we’re honest, but I figured the best way to make them more fall was to add some leather to the look. I paired this leather jacket over a plain white t-shirt and some black mules. What I love is that adding the leather also grunges up the look a bit more, while the pink pants and the mules keep the look feminine and perfectly balanced. My pants are sold out but here is a similar pair at a similar price point!

Outfit #3

I’m obsessed with this sweater! I’ve shown it to you a few times in the brown and now I’m sharing the pink because it’s that good, linked here. Super soft and cozy and perfect for fall. I found these cream pants at Target a few weeks ago and impulse bought them, but they are the kind of pants that are wardrobe staples but I can never find in stores. I knew I had to grab them, especially because they were less than $30! I’m adding a denim jacket and sneakers to dress it down, but you can add heels and a blazer to dress it up for work.

Outfit #4

I’ve shown you guys this pink trench tons of times, because it’s just the cutest. For a pink coat, it really goes well with everything and I wore the heck out of it in the spring this past year. I paired it with a pretty simple all white outfit to transition it into the fall. One of my favorite white sweaters and the same cream pants from the previous outfit look super cute with the pop of pink while still keeping you warm. I added nude heels but again you can dress it down with sneakers! The long version of this coat is sold out, but here’s a similar short version from the same company.
