Spring is the perfect time to spruce up the wardrobe for the warm months ahead. I always enjoy picking up a few new pieces to add to the rotation, but in the process I try to be mindful of how much I’m spending to keep my budget in check.
Today I’m sharing with you three cute new outfits I’ve picked up for spring that incorporate some of this year’s fashion trends-including fringe, cold-shoulders, and geometric prints. Even better, all of these outfits were purchased at Target, Wal-mart, and K-mart- making them budget-friendly!
Dressed Up Fringe
Styled With: Tank-$4 on Clearance (Target), Skirt-$20 BOGO 50 (Target), Sweater- $4 on Clearance (JCPenney), High Heels-$10 on Clearance (K-mart), Necklace $3 on Clearance (Burkes Outlet)= $41 Total
This jacquard fringe mini is the ideal skirt to go straight from the office to date night. Although the skirt and tank are pretty basic pieces, adding in a colorful cardigan and cute necklace really dress up the look, making it perfect for spring.
Girly Boho Chic
Styled with: Cold Shoulder Peasant Blouse-$9 (Wal-mart), High-Low Lace Skirt with Belt-$13 (Wal-mart), Lace Up Sandals-$10 on Clearance (Target-similar)= $32 Total
So, I don’t know about you all but I thought this outfit was simply too adorable to pass up. I love that peasant tops have made a come back and I’m loving the cute cold shoulder detail in this blouse. The high-low skirt is also a really versatile piece that could easily be dressed up or down.
Paint the Town in Geometric
Styled with: Geometric Print Dress with Zip-Up Front-$20 on Sale (K-mart), Belt-$5 (Wal-mart), Pumps-$8 on Clearance (Target)= $33 Total
This dress has such a gorgeous print that you’ll definitely be noticed wherever you go. I really love the zip-front detail and the geometric pattern, and I chose to add the blue belt to really accentuate the waist. Perfect for special occasions and family outings.
Which look is your favorite for Spring? What fashion trends are you loving at the moment?

All of these outfits look wonderful on you!

Thanks Leslie! 🙂 I do most of my shopping in off seasons, when everything is clearanced down and I try to buy versatile pieces that can be worn in different ways.
You are the cutest! You look lovely in all these looks!

Thanks Greta! 🙂
Dresses are my go-to…so easy and quick to pair with a cardigan for chillier mornings.
I do like outfit #1 the best!
I like how you did budget styling. When I see people on blogs wearing $250 everything (like, not total), I’m like get out of here. LOL
Thank-you! I love how easy dresses are too and you can make them casual or dressy depending on the accessories you pair with it. & I feel the exact same about $250 pieces. I mean maybe one day when I’m rich…nah, who am I kidding I’ll still shop at Target-haha.
I have the shirt and skirt from Walmart in different colors. I like the way you paired those together. I’ll be featuring mine on my blog soon. Great minds think alike 😉
Awesome Melanie! I’ll definitely check that out 🙂
So cute Cara! I love the dress in the last pictures. You are adorable and I love that you are styling affordable clothes.
Came over from Amaze Me Monday. 🙂
Thanks Stacey! So glad you stopped by 🙂
Cute! My favorite is the black, white, and teal, but the other too are all spring-y!
Thanks Kristin! I think the fringe skirt is my favorite as well 🙂
Looks great Cara! You are so pretty. Love you Daddy and Mommy.
Thanks! Love you both too!
I love the peasant top outfit especially, and that high-low skirt with the lace. So pretty! Also, your hair looks gorgeous!
Thanks Jennifer! The skirt is so cute-would look great on you too! 🙂
I love the fringe outfit! You’re a good bargain shopper…my kind of girl!
Thank-you! Haha, my mama taught me well 😉
All of these looks are gorgeous!!! I especially love that last dress!!! And black and white is always so classic, love it with that pop of teal.
I absolutely ADORE that patterned dress at the end! Gosh I want that now haha. Thanks so much for sharing this as I’m all about the deals 🙂
Thank-you! The color/pattern really popped when I saw it in the store, so I couldn’t pass it up. Happy to share all the deals 🙂
I love that fringe skirt!
Thank-you! It has such cute detail on it!
I love all three looks, Cara! They’re perfect for spring. Some trends I’m loving for spring are soft details like lace, and I’m loving the rose quartz and serenity color trends I’ve been seeing in stores! Great post!
Thank-you! Yes, I’m loving all the lace pieces as well and I especially love the rose quartz color. 🙂
These are super cute! I love the bright pop of color in the cardigan! Great pieces!
Thanks Tiffany! I agree, it’s a great color for spring 🙂
Target is always my go to for new stuff at good price points!
I agree- They always carry the latest trends that won’t break the bank, which I love. 🙂
Love sweater you paired with skirt and the white and pattern dress is really pretty
Thanks Candy! It was such a unique print, I couldn’t pass it up.
You look so pretty! I love that black and white skirt from Target! Don’t you just love when they do BOGO sales?
Thank-you Stephanie! I definitely do-haha I may or may not just make a special trip when they do 😉
You are an angel!! I love all these so much and I am the same kind of shopper!! Target is my friend, lol!! Hope you have a glorious day, you look so beautiful!
Thank-you so much! Target is my friend too-haha 🙂
Dresses aren’t worn often enough. They are SO easy!
And Target clothes have never let me down. They last forever.
I agree, Kristin! The quality of Target clothes are awesome!
You look SO adorable in them all
Love your hair in the white/print dress!!!
That turquoise cardigan is great with the black/white look. Just enough POP!
Aw thank-you! I’ve always really like the black and turquoise combo 🙂
