Turning Heads Linkup- Target Chestnut Jersey Dress as a Layer for Fall

Morning friends!

It’s a Target fashion week as I share just a few pieces I bought that are great layering pieces for Fall.

If you missed yesterday’s post, see how I layered my sleeveless olive midi dress from Target.

( My leopard heels are sinking into the leaves and dirt, but they are there, I assure you! )


I wrote about our busy weekend seeing a play and going to Woofstock, all such wonderful events. Last night we went to see Downton Abbey. I love our theatre, with cushy seats, great drinks, and food. Hubby and I had a Margharita pizza, he a glass of beer, and me, one of my favorite reds- 19 Crimes. I just love Downton Abbey and miss it being on! Carson and Grandmama ( Maggie Smith) are two of my favorite characters.  Its also no surprise that I salivate just looking at the fashions they all wear. Edith wore this luscious burnt orange velvet dress in an earlier scene. If you were to play a part, who would it be?

Target Fashion

Does anyone just go into Target for one thing? Or do you have a list and then deviate from it when you spot the women’s clothing section? Hubby and I have a system. He starts the grocery shopping, I go to the women’s fashion section, and then I meet him in an aisle when he is shopping. Doesn’t sound fair to him, does it? Well, this way, it avoids him waiting for me while I shop or try things on. We will text and I’ll ask where are you? It makes me laugh as before cell phones, my hubby bought us walkie-talkies ( to keep in touch while we rode bikes or hiked ) I can picture it now. Me in the dressing room at Target- “Breaker, Breaker Roy. I am in the women’s dressing room. Be out in 10.” Haha!

I was looking at the New Day line and the Prologue line, and picked this dress up, along with the dress from yesterday’s post. It comes in this brown tone as well as black. I loved the warm brown tone and as it is a lighter layer, thought it would be wonderful, like yesterday’s dress, to layer. I have kept it just “as is” for this post, but you will see me style it with various layers as the weather gets colder. I can style it with moto jackets and long dusters and have it pictured already!

This snakeskin Mango silk scarf has been a favorite of mine. I do love a neck scarf over a necklace at times for more pattern to a look. 

I am wearing vintage earrings I bought on Etsy in a gold an amber stone. The bronze bracelet c/o Soft Surroundings is a nice added touch without adding too much to the look.

My leopard heels, ( only 2 inches) are from Rockport, and they have Adidas cushioning making them very comfortable and adding another animal print to the style.

I’ve got great buys buying from Target, and also scored a couple of items on Poshmark I’ll share here soon. I sold a few items and bought a few.:-)

Have you tried Target fashion?  How might you layer this dress for yourself?

    Fabulous dress! I love the colour, and the snake print scarf looks lovely with it. I’ve never really got into Downton Abbey, but my mum loves it so I’ve watched it with her – I usually annoy her by asking who’s who all the time!

    I saw Downton Abbey this weekend too—couldn’t believe how packed the theatre was! Lady Mary is my favorite character, and I would totally rock that gorgeous zebra dress that she wore to the ball. And how can you not love Grandmama’s one-liners? I think we need a sequel with Tom and whats-her-name 😉

    That dress is so pretty on you! I absolutely love the snakeskin scarf! I used to love Target fashion, but now that we live farther away from one it’s harder to get to. Clearly I am missing out!

    Another great look on you! Just can’t beat some of these dresses from Target, can we? I like the long sleeves on this one and your scarf gives it just the right touch. Of course, so do the leopard heels! Kitten heels are the best, aren’t they?

    Happy Tuesday,

    I love that you and your hubby do so much life together. And you should totally bring walkie talkies next time to Target for old time’s sake. 🙂 Have a great week…as always you look fabulous!

    Oh, that’s another nice Target dress. I’m totally the person who goes in there for one thing and comes out with 10. I love the grandmother on Downton too. She’s such a great character.

    Was that movie not the best? Gosh I loved every minute and yes, the fashions are amazing! I love Mary and think that’s who I’d be in a play. So funny about you and the walkie talkies in the dressing room – hahahaha, thank goodness for cell phones!
    This dress is stunning on you, styled brilliantly and the the picture of fall fashion! Love it!

    A perfect dress for Fall, love the colour on you Jess. We do have Target stores here but the clothing is pretty ordinary. I had to laugh at the idea of walkie talkies. Downtown Abbey has just started showing here too, I must go , if only for the clothing.
