With fall here, it’s time to re-visit what’s in your closet. Back in January, we gave our master bedroom closet some attention. We even built a barn door to enhance the space. One thing still remains the same though. I don’t have anytime to shop for clothing! That means that what pieces I do have get worn a ton. My favorite tees, favorite espadrilles, and jeans get worn out! Not the best system but it’s the truth. That’s one of the many reasons I started this Mom Style Chronicles series – to help us be accountable for how we look.
As a busy mother, I find there is not enough time in the day to shop for, try on, and find suitable clothing.
Maybe you feel the same way. That’s why I was so excited when I realized:
- I’m at Target.
- I’ve got Pumpkin Spice in my cup.
- I’m by myself.
- I have some time to spare.
- Target has a huge NEW line of clothing – A New Day: Available Exclusively at Target!
If you’ve seen this clothing line and are wondering what it has to offer, then look no further than this post. Did I buy anything from this line? Yes, and I’ll be back for more items. After trying on many pieces here’s my synopsis on the entire line.
There are a ton of cute and flattering tops, including camisoles, tees, and even sweaters. This blouse was super cute on the hanger and my favorite detail was the bell sleeves. (By the way, there are a ton of tops in this clothing line that have very cute sleeve details.) However, I was not happy with how the sleeves went below my wrist. If you’re a mother, you don’t need your sleeves hanging into ANYTHING! Just think about your sleeves hanging into something for a moment. Haha! My final synopsis for this top is it will work for date night or stylish corporate wear. It’s not practical for everyday Mom style. Pair this blouse with dark denim jeans or a pencil skirt.

Did you know that PINK IS THE IN COLOR OF FALL? I like that thought and therefore like this pink pullover sweater. For me, the ruffle detail on it is flattering but not might be for all. This sweater feels good on and would be perfect for when it really gets cold here in Louisiana. There is nothing I don’t like this about this top. My final synopsis for this top is it will work for corporate wear and everyday Mom style. It will look great with slacks, dark denim jeans, or a pencil skirt.

These green side-piped pants are awesome! They come in green, maroon/cherry, and magenta. The green was my favorite because the color screams traditional fall. They fit great too! The striped cuff T-shirt accents the pants well and is a year-round kind of top. My final synopsis for this outfit is it will work for corporate wear and everyday Mom style. Pair it with gold jewelry accents and black shoes.

This was one of my favorite outfits and it’s currently in my closet. Check out the sleeve detail on this tiered sleeve shirt! I was so excited to see that this top was flattering on me! This top is like nothing else I have in my closet. It comes in this awesome blue/white stripe combination and tucks in nicely to any pants. It can be paired with this blue jean, pleated skirt, which again I didn’t have in my closet either. The A-line design of the skirt is flattering and works year-round. My final synopsis for this outfit is it will work for corporate wear, everyday Mom style, and even last-minute date nights. Pair it with bold earrings and strappy sandals or chic sneakers.

More sleeve details here with this pleated short sleeve blouse. This top comes in orange (my favorite), green, black, and maroon. The orange was not available in my size so I tried it in the black. It’s a very forgiving and flattering top. With the vast color combinations there are limitless clothing options. In the store, I paired it with this navy pleated skirt. I really like the skirt and find it flattering because the pleats are forgiving. The length is considered “midi” so it’s well below your knees. My final synopsis for this outfit is it will work for stylish corporate wear and everyday Mom style. Pair the skirt with a white tee and chic sneakers to dress down.

When I spotted this olive jacket I knew I had to try it on! I loved the detail on the rolled cuff and the structure of the jacket. I’ll be honest and admit I’m not a fan of tweed. It makes me hot and itchy. But just to have these stylish rolled cuffs, I would buy this jacket. My final synopsis for this tweed jacket is that it will work for stylish corporate wear and everyday Mom style. Pair the skirt with dark denim and chic sneakers to dress down.

I had to try on this sleeveless military jacket! It was so cute and I knew it would look great with jeans. Obviously, don’t wear this exact shirt with it…that’s all I had to try on with when I took this image. But I still loved it! It comes in military green and this dark gray. My final synopsis for this jacket is it will work best for everyday Mom style. It’s a laid back piece that will work year round. Pair it with a turtle neck for winter or tee for summer.

There are many dresses in this clothing line but I didn’t have time to try on many. Mom’s are always on a schedule and my time was winding down by this point. Here is one dress that I got to try on. It’s smocked in the neckline and the top portion. It’s pretty flattering but I just really didn’t like it. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t looking for a dress on this day or didn’t need it. It’s definitely hard for me to think about shopping for clothes I need in the future. I’m sort of an “on demand shopping kind of girl”. My final synopsis for this dress is it will work best for date night. I wouldn’t recommend for everyday Mom style. Pair it with your favorite black booties.

You’ll find A New Day at Target is perfect for most women, especially Moms. It will have you feeling stylish and you really just got that top while picking up household essentials. Winning! I find that a lot of the clothing in this line will work all year long too. That’s my kind clothes! Because I don’t have a lot of time to shop I need pieces that can be worn at anytime, not just during specific seasons. I find that other than a few “in style” colors that this clothing will work whenever you need it. Perfect for Mom’s headed to work, date night, or to pick-up kids! Now what?
Pickup your favorite latte and head to Target ASAP. You’ll be happy you did.
I’ll definitely be back to Target to explore some of the accessories from the A New Day clothing line. Are there any pieces that you can see wearing this fall? Let me know in the comments.
