This Cardigan comes in three other colors (Olive, Black and Gray). Mine is actually called "Light Purple" but in my head (and here on the blog) I always call it blush. It's very thin and lightweight, so it will be more of a Spring/Summer piece. We had a couple of days in the mid 70s this week so it was the perfect layer for that. Also, just a note that if you're eyeing any other colors: I also ordered the Gray one, but I returned it because in person it has a rather pronounced striped pattern to the fabric. It's hard to tell that from the website picture (it just looks like computer-screen blurring) but for me just wanted a solid/heathered color.
These white distressed jeans were from my Express President's Day order and luckily they ran true to size so they worked out for me. They are a cropped length (they don't come in Short/Regular/Long options like other Express jeans) and I was surprised that they do actually look cropped and shorter on me than the model! Go figure. I'm 5'4", and my ankles felt pretty bare so I opted for sandals that came up a little higher.
Speaking of these sandals, I was tempted to go half size down in these when I first tried them on because it seemed like they were long in the toe area. But they're also narrow in the toe area, so when my foot slides forward while walking my toes would be too close to the edge for my taste. So I'm glad I stayed with my normal size. If you're between sizes you could probably go with the smaller size, but these might be best to try in person (or order two sizes in and return one if you're buying online). They are pretty comfortable for a fair amount of walking, the only trick is adjusting all the laces to the correct width at first! Thankfully they have a zipper on the side so it's much easier to get them on/off.

Front View of all three sale favorites:
Both the jacket and the shirt are ultra-soft and comfortable! Naturally the cardigan is comfortable as well, but that's to be expected!
Last but not least, there's one item I have been debating about for over a year that I think I might try during this sale. This pic was taken in Target in January 2016!
Quite a few of my blogger friends have some kind of utility vest like this and have been telling me that I need one. I did try this on in Target a year ago but decided not to get it... I just wasn't 100% sure I could make it work for me.
I'm still not 100% certain I can make it work, but it looks like it could be this exact vest that's on sale now for $24, and that price makes it a bit more tempting to give it a try.
They look identical to me in every aspect from color to length to soft fabric. They also look like they are made from the same material as my olive jacket above, which is a big plus.
It's a short wishlist for sure but since my closet purge I'm being extra picky in my purchases! That said, if you have any Target must-haves that are part of the sale, let me know so I can have a look! Have a great weekend!
