I know the holidays look a lot different this year for a lot of us but nonetheless it’s still a time to be festive even if that means being in your pajamas or sweatpants! So whether you are attending a holiday party or watching a Hallmark movie on the couch, hopefully one of these affordable outfits from Target is right up your alley!
I will say that I am a sucker for a cozy sweater and midi skirt combo because you can easily dress it up with heels or booties as well as dress it down with sneakers depending on your event. Target has SO many sweaters this season that come in festive red and green colors as well as good neutrals as well. I’ve linked all of my favorites for you below. I find that the sweaters run true to size but since I like them oversized I typically size up to a small!

Target is having some of the best Cyber Monday deals on the internet right now so I wanted to round up some items that would make great gifts. If you have been waiting for household item, electronics or toys to go on sale, these are the best that I have found. Snag a good deal while you can!
Tis the season for cute holiday pajamas! I know there are a lot out here but I promise you these are the cutest on the internet and a lot of them are currently on sale for cyber week so take advantage!
When it comes to home decorating do you tend to take a traditional or non traditional approach? Over the years I’ve flip flopped back and forth. For example this year I love all of the buffalo plaid. I already know that I want to incorporate it for Fall and bring it into the holiday season as well. I plan on mixing in some harvest colors with the buffalo plaid for Fall and then trading those out for red and gold come December. I tend to gravitate towards pieces that I know can be used for multiple holidays whether that’s Halloween and Thanksgiving or Fall and Christmas!
My favorite places to shop for budget friendly home decor are always Target, TJ Maxx and Amazon. They have affordable finds that last me a few season’s worth so that way if I want to change it up one year, I didn’t invest too much money into a theme that isn’t to my liking anymore. Most finds from these places are under $20, if not less. TJ Maxx has free shipping days every so often (including TODAY!) where I like to stock up on all of the things.
And just like that it’s November 1st and approximately 54 days until Christmas but who’s counting;) October’s top ten purchased items by all of you were not a shock to me at all but it’s safe to say you girls love (and I mean LOVE) your designer dupes!
In addition to designer dupes, I saw a trend with cozy, affordable items as well as clothing items that you could wear with over the knee boots. Speaking of over the knee boots, these have been a top seller now for three months in a row and I’m so excited to announce that the brand finally gave me a discount code for my followers! It is CHIC40 and will get you 40% off. Grab em at this price while you can ladies! If you enjoy these types of post and are curious about how I obtain this data and track sales on the back end, scroll down to the bottom of this post for more information on that!
NOW PRESENTING… OCTOBER TOP TEN!
You girls love your dupes! This Hermés bracelet dupe was the number one selling item but the famous Gucci belt dupe was a close second as well as all of the David Yurman dupes. I’m linking all of them below!
Not only do I love love love these boots, I’ve received an overwhelming amount of good feedback on these AND I just got a 40% off discount code for my followers – CHIC40! The best way for me to describe them is almost like a stretchy scuba material. They are the only pair of boots that actually stay up on my legs because they are so stretchy, but do not stretch out. I can wear them with leggings, pants and even bare legged- they always stay up!
They do run on the small side so I suggest sizing up at least a half size, full size if you plan to wear thicker socks. I got my true size (European 38 and I wear a true 7.5). They fit very snug. I’ve seen them on girls under 5″ and those over 6″ and they work for all heights! Also, I highly suggest expedited shipping if you want to receive them sooner than 4-6 weeks. I cannot sing these boots praises enough and yes I did pay for them myself and this is not sponsored:)
Leopard everything is flying off of the shelves this season! This sweater is under $20 + is BOGO 50% off right now. I suggest grabbing it and the other top seller below (this sweater) before the promotion ends! I am wearing an XS (my true size) as I wanted something more fitted but if you want a loser fit, I suggest sizing up!
This knotted shirt dress has been on and off sale all month and when it is, you ladies have been grabbing it up! The unexpected knot in the front gives it a little something extra. I have paired it with over the knee boots and also with a cardigan and booties! It runs true to size and comes in a few other styles as well. All are currently 25% off. Linking all below!
This $15 basic tee is a must for layering! I own it in all 4 colors and wear them almost daily, especially the striped ones. I love pattern mixing with the striped ones. The easiest prints to mix with them are leopard and plaid! Bring in the other pattern with a scarf, belt or booties! Linking some pattern play options below.
This fuzzy pullover has been 40% off all month! It has sold out multiple times and been restocked. If they still have it in your size, I suggest grabbing it ASAP before they decide not to restock it again. I sized up to a small so I could wear it with leggings but I will say it already runs oversized to begin with! What makes this fuzzy pullover different from others ones I’ve seen is that the inside is the exact same material as the outside so talk about cozy central! Since Express keeps having good sales, going to list a few of the other top sellers from there below.
After doing my “How to Style Overalls” blog post, I’m surprised these overalls aren’t sold out yet because y’all bought the crap out of them! I obviously have a thing for overalls and these are so good. I love the slim fit and raw hem. They do run on the smaller side so if in between sizes, size up! I got a 25 but honestly could have done a 26! They are currently 25% off. I am also linking a cheaper pair if you aren’y ready to pull the trigger yet on these.
These high waisted ankle pants sky rocketed to the top of the leader board last month and placed in the top ten this month too. It’s safe to say that Work Wear Wednesdays are not dead and I will be bringing you ladies lot’s more before the year is over! While these pants come in 8 colors, unfortunately there is very limited sizing left. I suggest sizing down if in between sizes as I tend to think Express runs on the bigger side.
These cotton, $15 leggings were a huge hit! They run true to size.
This sweater dress is actually a sweater that I sized up to make a dress! I suggest sizing up two sizes. I am normally an XS and got the medium in both of these! The dress comes in 8 colors, is just $29 and is currently included in a BOGO 50% off sale. I suggest grabbing this as well as the other Target top seller (this sweater).
And as a reminder on how I obtain the monthly top ten data…
I use an affiliate program called rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any link- whether it be from my Instagram or blog- that takes you to a product page on a retailer’s site and rewardStyle is able to track that it originated from me. Some affiliate programs will pay the influencer for every click that they generate from their site. RewardStyle pays per purchase made. This means that if you click on one of my links and then end up purchasing that item, I will get a small commission (usually between 7-12%). Many bloggers use this same program as part of their revenue source.
Because I use this service I do have access to data analytics. This means I can track what items are clicked on and purchased. I cannot see who clicked on them or what other items might have been purchased. For example, if you click on my Target sweater dress link and then purchase a swimsuit and a top in the same transaction, I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and that the dress link is how you got to the retailer’s site.
These analytics are incredibly important to me because it allows me to see what all of you are liking. At the end of the day, this little blog business of mine is meant to be a resource for all of you so having the ability to track and measure each product’s success is invaluable. Coming from a Finance background, I tend to geek out over the analytics side of it as I find it incredibly intriguing what all of you are liking, buying and clicking on the most! It gets my gears turning because I genuinely want to bring you products that you are going to love and want to buy (at the right price point of course)!
Like I mentioned, this little blog is a full time business for me which means I am so appreciative when you choose to click and shop through my links – whether that be on Instagram or the blog. I have poured everything I have into being a resource for all of you so that hopefully it makes your life a little bit easier. I know that shopping through my links is an extra step for you, but please know it makes all the difference to me. It is how I am able to continue sharing great deals, try on sessions, and everything else. O and it allows me to pay my bills 🙂
All of that is to say, shopping through my links does not cost you anything additional (the item is the same price), the retailer will just pay me a small cut since I am the one that referred you. Please know I am so thankful when you choose to shop through my links and give me credit for helping you score a great find!
