Dressing Room Review: Knox Rose at Target and More Random Goodness

Cold shoulder top by Knox Rose at Target
You don't need to roll out a designer collab like Marimekko to draw me to Target on a random Sunday afternoon. On a recent trip I had a little time to try on some tops by Knox Rose, which can look unimpressive on the rack but really shine when you try them on. Case in point: The cold shoulder top above looked shapeless on the hanger but made me feel sexy (for a change!) when I tried it on. Knox Rose actually has a bunch of on-trend cold shoulder tops and peasant tops that are so in right now and feel right for summer, no matter what your usual style calls for. Just style them with white pants or denim shorts and sandals for easy outfits you can take from day to night with the right accessories. For under $25, these pieces are an inexpensive way to try the boho trend without the spending commitment you might pay at Free People or Anthropologie. Read on for some of my picks, plus some incredible fashion jewelry and my new favorite picnic blanket by Threshold!

Jewelry at Target
Super feminine and fun boho top by Knox Rose. Can't find it online...believe it was $24.99 and I'm wearing size XS. Sizing is weird with this line!

Jewelry at Target
Pretty indigo blue flutter sleeve top, $24.99 by Knox Rose. I'm wearing size Medium.

Jewelry at Target
Cute tank top by Knox Rose with a boho print and a tiny fringe detailing around the neckline. On clearance for $9.98 at my store; $16.98 online.

Jewelry at Target
Obsessed with this chevron necklace, of course I can't find it online. I think it was either $19.99 or $24.99...anyone know for sure?

Jewelry at Target
Long, oversized silver and turquoise pendant looks like something you'd pay twice as much for at a department store. Love.

Another beautiful turquoise statement necklace, perfect for summer with a white dress or simple t-shirt and jeans.

Jewelry at Target
Basic tees were on sale for $6 over the weekend so I bought a couple of these by Mossimo. Honestly the quality of Target basics isn't the best but for $6 you can't beat it. I do love the relaxed fit and styling of these tees, looks like the designer brands.

Top at Target
Love the "favorite popover shirt" by Merona (now just $15!), comes in a lot of J.Crew style prints like gingham, plaid and more. Size medium here.

Top at Target
Pretty print peasant top, $24.99, looks like this dress Kate Middleton wore on her India tour.

I just ordered this Threshold picnic blanket ($24.99) and I love it! I'm out and about all the time with my two boys during the warm months so I really needed a new picnic blanket, and this one is so stylish yet water resistant and machine washable. You could take this to a winery or the park for an outdoor concert...so good. My one criticism is that this blanket isn't the easiest to roll back up, but it looks so darn cute. I see a lot of moms carrying this Miu blanket and it looks much easier to fold and go.

Tribal meets modern in these necklaces. Nice contrast against a boho print maxi.

NEED. Delicate chevrons are so now.

That very first rose-colored cold shoulder top and the one that looks like Kate's dress from the India tour are so pretty and flattering! I hope you got at least one of them! ;-)

Thank you...I debated getting both but didn't find either to be particularly breast-feeding friendly and that's where my wardrobe's at these days! I guess I could still get the rose one for date nights... ;-)

I purchase a cute long-sleeve top by Knox Rose at Target. I paid $27 for this shirt. It is a blackish/dark charcoal grey in color. Wearing this top one time it turned my arms and chest area grey! I had to shower a second time. I have washed this top 4 times and the wash water continues to be a dark grey even with the rinse water being the same. I really like this shirt but hesitate to wear at times because I am afraid it will fade on my skin. I cannot find a site online for Knox Rose to submit my comment. Perhaps you can offer some information for me? Thanks. D.

I can't find that first rose colored one on Targets website! It's very cute

I can't find it either, hope your store has it! I tried scanning the item with the Target app but it didn't bring it up on their website. Sometimes that's a useful way to save things you like in store and buy them online later.
