Fashion Over Forty: Favorite Fall Sweater Finds From Target

This is my second post for today. If you are here to view my newest papercraft for Penny Black and More challenge, click here (hopefully the permalink works!) or simply scroll down to the next post.

While visiting a few fashion blogs recently I came across a sweater from Target that I LOVED. However it was not available at my local store (small town problem!!) so I decided to go online to check out their new sweaters and found several I wanted to try. Target ships free at $35 or more, and returns are easy (at the store or by mail). My order came in two shipments, today I am showing you an outfit with the first sweater I received. At the end of this post I've included pictures of the others I ordered and received in the meantime.




You can purchase this striped sweater here, (it's by  Universal Threads) (ETA: This color option is Sold Out, but available in Gray Stripes which is a great choice for the Winter months.) and if you are lucky you might find it at your local Target store while your're out shopping. This is not the sweater I've seen posted by the other fashion blogger, but one that caught my eye while browsing their site. I've always been a fan of striped tops and I love these colors so it made its way into the shopping cart.


This is a mock neck sweater. I was worried that it would be itchy but the fabric is so soft and not itchy at all. The label says it's machine washable, but I did notice one of the reviewers recommending hand washing, because her sweater came out with lint on the black stripes after machine washing it. I do try to hand wash most of my knit sweaters anyway as it keeps them in better condition than machine washing. I always use Woolite Delicates when hand washing knit sweaters.

I would say it runs true to size. I did end up folding it up at the sleeves but I am petite and therefore it was a little bit long on my arms.


My jeans are from Loft. This pair was purchased a few years ago so I can no longer link to them. They do have some great new styles available, and I assume they are still as comfortable as mine are.  Right now, Loft is running a 40% off sale with code FRIENDS.


LOFT



I've had these boots by Clark for a long time. They may not be "on trend" but they are super comfortable. I have no link for these, but if you're looking for a comfortable pair of booties with a little heel I like these booties by Taos with a 1.25 inch heel. I also like these ankle boots by Miz Mooz (I've mentioned these before). And these vintage inspired booties look pretty amazing as well, but with a higher heel of 2.5". I've also heard great things about Vionic brand. You can view their ankle boots here





For a lower price option do check out Target ankle boots. I've never purchased shoes for myself from Target, so I can't say how comfortable they are, but many of their shoes/boots do have good reviews. 




My shoulder bag is by Chaps (old). I does convert easily into a cross body bag and I love that because they are so practical.

Below are all the sweaters I ordered: each one I received in a size XS and they fit as expected, true to size. For size references I am around 5'2" and  weigh around 120lb. 



This crew neck sweater (from the A New Day line) was featured on another blog and I fell in love! I love the unique Victorian inspired neckline and the sleeve details. The color is gorgeous too and it's so soft!  Like the other  blogger, I will be styling this top with jeans but not with a skirt! This one is a keeper!



This tunic lengths sweater (also by A New Day) was shared by a different fashion blogger. (They are all so enabling!!) I normally don't buy turtlenecks, but really liked the way this one looked worn by the other blogger styled with skinny jeans, I decided to order it. Again the sweater is super soft, not at all scratchy and the turtleneck is loose enough where it doesn't bother me. I also love this  burgundy color and loved how it fit. So it is another keeper. 


This Ribbed Crew neck Sweater (another one by A New Day) is also really soft. This is a more fitted sweater style. I decided to return this one although the color is gorgeous and I did like the fit, but I liked the other sweaters more and cannot keep all of them.



I also got this sweatshirt by Universal Threads, but in a rust (brown) color. I don't see that color online anymore. But wanted to list in anyway as I find it super comfortable and it's another keeper for a casual look.


Finally, below is the sweater I'm wearing in today's post. As mentioned this sweater is so soft and warm, and the mock neck is very comfortable and not itchy at all. I've already worn it twice.
ETA: The sweater is sold out in this color option. The gray striped sweater is still available and a great choice as we head into the Winter months.

This color option is sold out, you can still purchase the gray striped version.


I hope you enjoyed today's post. Next week I'll be sharing an outfit with this crew neck sweater. Hope you'll come back to see that look.

  2. I have been making a little list of sweaters I want to try! I have figured out that I do not need anything grey or in the purple family because I am set for those!

  3. I absolutely love this sweater. I have a color block cardigan on my Amazon wish list. This style is really trending. I also love the victorian one too. The neckline and sleeves are stunning.

    1. Thanks Amy! They both are so pretty! I've worn the victorian style sweater yesterday and loved it! They are both still simple enough to be my style, but with a little extra to make them not "ordinary" sweaters.

  4. I am loving all the stripped sweaters and featured one I borrowed from my daughters closet just a couple of weeks ago. This is a great find for sure.

  5. Those are all great sweaters; I too almost bought the peach with the ruffle neck when I saw another blogger who wore it for their family photos. We ended up going with a different color scheme so I ultimately didn't buy it but I really did like it.

    1. Our Target clothing department looks so nice as well. I usually end up ordering online though because I need an XS and they don't always have XS in stock of the items I want to try. I've only seen this sweater in store in a couple of sizes. Things definitely get picked over quickly in store. Thank goodness for their free shipping over $35!

  14. Super cute sweater! Target has had some great sweaters the past few years. It is making me want to go shopping but I am on a complete shopping freeze as I have way too much stuff already! Thanks for linking up with me!

    1. Oh my goodness, as I am making my way through the posts linked my party, I came across Darlene of Aquamarina Style sharing the same exact sweater! I loved seeing the two different ways of styling it!

    2. They really have introduced some fabulous pieces in the last few years! I need to put myself on a shopping freeze as well, especially with Christmas just around the corner!
      Will have to check out Darlene's bog, I'm not familiar with it, thanks for leaving the name of her blog so I can take a look!
