I went to Target the other day for the first time in months! And I was pleasantly surprised by all their new summer clothes! I grabbed 9 pieces and love how they mix and match so I thought I’d share them with you.
Everything is simple, comfortable and soft! Let’s take a look:
Ok, so here’s what they look like on. Disclaimer: I’m not a fashion blogger or model. I have no idea how to pose and I don’t take myself very seriously in these photos! Haha! I’m 5’4″ and ordered a medium in everything.
See me try the pieces on here:
I love a good V-neck tee that isn’t too deep and crazy soft! This pale yellow is so pretty and flattering. We haven’t seen this color in the mix for awhile. I’m glad it’s back! This also pairs well with the pale yellow hoodie I’ve included as well.
This is the same V-neck tee in charcoal. It’s slightly distressed. It looks and feels more expensive than $8.
I love this printed garden tee. It looks cute with everything!
And finally for tops, I couldn’t pass by this flattering pale yellow hoodie. SO soft and comfy! Perfect for those cool summer night by the campfire or boat ride on the lake.
I’m 5’4″ so these striped shorts are the perfect length for me! They are not as short as the model shown. They hit slightly below my fingertips, which I love. They are linen and have an elastic waistband. I’m crazy about them! These were a big win, as I’m very picky about shorts.
The picture does not do these cream linen pants justice! They really look pricey and elegant. They are such an easy way to dress up one of these tees. You can look put together in seconds. They are slightly long for me at 5’4″.
These linen overalls are darling! They have a drawstring and narrow back. Overalls might not be everyone’s taste, but it’s fun to have something different in your closet. You should give them a try!
This sweet smocked gauze shift dress is 100 percent cotton, cool and pretty. You could put pull it down off the shoulders if you’re feeling sassy. I also bought the the dress in black as well!
This is the tank dress that you might scroll past but in reality will wear every day! In Florida it’s already scorching out. I don’t want to wear cute layers in the middle of the day. I want a long sleeveless T-shirt to keep cool! And this does the trick, only is much cuter than a moo moo or oversized tee, haha!
Here are some more selections that coordinate and I might need to put in my cart!

Thanks so much for taking a minute to leave me a note! Glad you liked it. Hope you and your family and having a wonderful weekend :)
No prob hope u and ur family are well. Love the target choices. Silly question do u do no spend challenges? And where do u like to shop on budget for mom clothes. I’m in my late 30s and have the boys like u and just wanted to keep things minimal and on budget due to
Covid and being economical. Thanks and hope u guys are well. 😊
Yes! I do spending freezes regularly. Here’s a post on how I do it if you are interested: https://www.housemixblog.com/2018/02/15/how-to-do-a-spending-freeze/
My kids are 5,7 and 9 and up until now I have bought their clothes at a consignment shop called Once Upon a Child, but now my oldest has texture issues so I buy most of his clothes at Walmart. For me, I don’t buy many clothes. I do a capsule like this a few times a year. I shop at places like Ross Dress for Less for dresses and Target for everyday clothes. Maybe an occasional Amazon purchase. As I get older I am starting to appreciate buying less clothes of better quality. But I’m not fashionista, so maybe I’m not the best person to ask, haha!
I also wrote this post on 100+ ways to save money. Maybe you’ll find something in there of interest :)
Hey Kate thanks so much. I will check out links. Yes I’m finding with being on one budget to spend less on clothing too. I do tjmaxx and target for me. (And prob only 2x a year) My boys are 6 and 9 and they like the same like your boys. I appreciate your time because we are living a frugal minimal life on one teaching salary and appreciate all the tips. I hope you and your family are safe and well during these times. Thank you again for creating a great blog! So inspirational!
Sounds like you’re a great mama doing an amazing job! So nice to “meet” you here :)
So cute! I love the yellow hoodie, it looks incredibly comfy. :)
That was one of my favorites! It’s so soft and such a pretty color :)
Would you mind sharing your source for the beautiful rug? Many thanks!
Of course! Here is the rug, but it seems there’s no fringe on the end now. I ordered the 4×6 :)
