Spring Must-Haves from Target

target picks for spring

Target is always a great place to go for high style at low prices. Here are a few cute items I’ve got my eye on for spring.


target leopard espadrille mule

A. Women’s DV Elaine Espadrille Mule, $24.99

This is THE famous leopard mule you’ve been seeing all over Instagram lately. I snapped up a pair myself, but haven’t worn them yet (too cold!). They seem like they’ll be pretty comfortable, though, just from trying them on and doing a little walking around the house. And as you can see they are uh-dorable! They also come in a metallic rose gold color which makes it incredibly hard to decide which to get. At this price you could probably justify getting both.


target ruffle sleeve stripe tee

B. Ruffle Sleeve Striped Top by Le Kate, $29.99

Ruffles are a detail you can expect to see everywhere this spring and summer. The stripes and drape of this tee make it more casual and less fussy than some ruffled tops can be.


target hexagon hoop earring

C. Hexagon Shaped Hoop Earrings in Gold by A New Day, $7.99

Hoops are trending for spring and summer, and the hexagon shape of these gives them a little edge. Plus, coming in at under $10, these are a steal.


the book was better tee

D. The Book Was Better tee by Modern Lux, $12.99

So true, right? My BFF-slash-English teacher across the hall has this shirt and she totally rocks it. Every English teacher (and book lover, for that matter) needs this.


gray camo tank target

E. Camo Gray Tank by Grayson Threads, $14.99

I have this tank and it’s so versatile. I’ve been wearing it all winter long with cardigans, blazers, and jackets, and in spring and summer I love wearing it with white denim.


Gold fortune cookie necklace target

F. Sterling Silver Fortune Cookie Necklace in Gold, $19.99

This 18-inch necklace is the perfect delicate accessory to wear with casual outfits. And who couldn’t use a little shot of good luck?


Target Maelys Espadrille

G. Maelys Espadrilles – Mossimo, $27.99

I love it when espadrilles come with a bit of a platform: they look so much cooler. These are perforated and metallic, which is a nice contrast to the beachy feel of the espadrille edge. I’ve seen a few people wearing them and they look really cute on.


target universal thread chambray pull on short

H. Universal Thread Pull-On Shorts in Light Wash, $17.99

These pull-on shorts are from Target’s popular Universal Thread collection. They’re drapey and comfortable and they are really flattering. I bought a pair of these for summer. Can’t wait until it’s warm enough to wear them out and about.


universal thread raw hem boyfriend shorts target

I. Universal Thread Mid-Rise Raw Hem Boyfriend Jean Shorts, $19.99

These are another item that I bought for summer. I love the longer length (I’m not into shorts I have to worry about tugging down all the time), and the raw hem and distressing look great. I’m going to wear them with dressier tops (like the one in this photo) and sandals, as well as with casual tees and tanks.


target universal thread freeborn denim jacket

J. Universal Thread Freeborn Denim Jacket – Light Wash, $29.99

This is another great piece from the Universal Thread collection. I tried it on in the store and it’s really soft and stretchy. I ended up buying this even though I already have a darker colored distressed denim jacket. The light wash is a fresh change for spring and summer.


Target Drapey blush pink moto jacket

K. Who What Wear Drapey Moto Jacket, $44.99

I picked up this pretty blush pink moto jacket as well. I wore it on Valentine’s Day and it’ll be on serious repeat this spring and summer. It looks absolutely perfect, but there is one drawback to it. It’s a crepey material that doesn’t stretch that well, and while that really doesn’t matter unless I’m wearing it to school to teach in. I’m one of those teachers who likes to move around and wave my arms a lot, and when the material doesn’t give it restricts my arm waving a bit. πŸ™‚


target universal thread white sweatshirt pullover

L. Universal Thread Crew Sweatshirt, $19.99

There’s nothing better than a comfy sweatshirt, and this one is soft with just the right amount of give. I love the updated cut and medium-to-light weight. It would be perfect for those chilly spring days or summer nights. I am seriously considering picking one up for myself.


Oh, and here’s one more graphic tee I spotted at Target that isn’t on my list of “must-haves,” but that is really calling my name:

avocado-holic tee target

Avocado-Holic Tee, $12.99


So those are my current faves from Target. They’re all on the casual, neutral side of the fashion line, and that’s my favorite side to be on. All of these pieces are great for mixing and matching and would be go-to pieces that you know you could pull out again and again. What goodies have you been eyeing at Target this spring?
