Bell sleeve striped top

Target’s new brand, Universal Thread officially launched today and I am loving it so far. My local Target already had the brand shop set up and it was a mad house with all of us shoppers tearing through it. I was able to get my hands on this adorable bell sleeve, striped top. It is very reminiscent of Madewell or J.Crew.

I paired it up with my favorite Mossimo and Supply Co wedges and a little stone pendant necklace also bearing the Universal Thread brand name.

The fabric is really thin so you’ll want to wear a tank underneath. How about a red tank or coral tank for a pop of color?

Really fun button detail down the back. Good job yet again, Target!!

Petite friendly maxi under $30!

Hallelujah for the weekend. Any big Super Bowl plans? We’ll be playing it by ear this year as neither of us are loyal football fans but we do enjoy a good game, food and friends, so we’ll see. Today I’ve got another Universal Thread piece that I was able to snap up AND love. When you’re petite and you find a maxi dress that doesn’t drag on the ground, you buy it…no questions asked! I did have this dress altered just a tad on the sides. Honestly, it would have been fine without alterations, but I wanted it just a bit more fitted rather than flowy.

It’s super comfy and is 100% cotton but feels and looks like linen. Now for the shoes…I am 4’11” and did the flip flop test and the dress does not drag on the ground. So verdict is you can pair with flat sandals or wedges. These wedges are old, but I linked up one of my latest favorite wedges that would be really cute with this. Excited to wear it to a BBQ or brunch- I suppose I best get to planning something!

Before alterations pic…a little loose around the waist and on the sides. Now, keeping in mind that this dress is 100% cotton, it might shrink a wee bit in the wash.
