I don't think there is a stay at home mum on the face of the western world that doesn't have an item or two from Target in her wardrobe. Why? Because it's easy, affordable and on trend but most importantly, it's wash and wear. For me, thats the holy grail of my mumming wardrobe. I need clothing that I can throw on (from the floor if need be - see exhibit c - fabulously unironed shorts) and flog, day in day out. I need items that I can mix and match without needing to think about it. Plus, I need clothing that will fit within my *cough* budget.
This Summer I took $200 to Target to see what I could come up with. I was searching for two things easy wear and smart casual and I'm pretty happy with the result. I've included the sizes and price of each item 'cue if you're anything like me, you don't have time to try things on with kids in tow (hello online shopping, we love you)
I picked up a couple of Summer dresses for $35 each, two pairs of easy wear shorts, one crocheted cardi, one patterned scarf and a few simple tops. Those 8 or 9 items will see me dressed quickly and easily every day this summer.
In other news, Target now has an additional 30% off women's clothing so those prices up there are even cheaper. Crazy, I know.
