This post is brought to you by Target Australia.

For this post my sister and I took up the challenge to style one Target Australia item multiple ways. We chose work and play and given the current changing of the seasons, we wanted something that would work now and well into winter. Plus there was a sale {we never miss a sale} so why not go for broke.

For work I wanted classic styling and something that will take me into winter without needing much more than my suiting jacket or a blazer. Something sophisticated and modern. For play I wanted something I could wear to the movie or dinner with Hubby. Casual, cute and a little bit sexy. Can I say sexy in a Target post? Oh well, I will anyway. Moving on.

Our key piece is the elastic waist ponte pants. I knew that the slim fit would work well a tunic length and my current pointed toe shoe obsession. The ponte pants are a heavy weight stretch fabric, have a wide structured elastic waist band and they fit and have a similar weight fabric to my Torrid Jeans. So I’m treating them like I would a slim fit pant rather than a legging.

For the work look I’ve paired it with this tunic top which is also available in pink and black. I’m a big fan of this colour especially paired with black, so this was the one. This tunic is sleeveless and is perfect for Queensland at the moment where the morning’s are cool but as the day goes on it heats up. A lightweight fabric that could easily be layered as the weather gets colder. I’ve added a black suiting jacket I already owned and a nice big bag that would be suitable for the office.

The shoes featured in this post are also from Target and appear to be a return of a style I’ve always loved. They are a kitten heel, pointed toe shoe VERY similar to my red ones from years ago. For me a kitten heel is the best of bother worlds. They give a bit of the kick of a higher pair of heels without the discomfort.

For the casual look I wanted a relaxed fit jumper that I could wear with booties. There was much debate about what colour to pick up this jumper in with my sister insisting on the maroon because it suits her so beautifully it has to work on me too. She’s right, of course, up herself, but right. Haha. I ended up picking it up in my size in the blue and you can see me wearing here. In the maroon, to create this look I picked it up in the size 28. I was hoping for a more relaxed fit {and more length!} but over time I’m sure it will give me an inch or two.

With the kitten heels this look reminds me of an old Audrey Hepburn movie or something. Maybe I should have added a head scarf? Cute. I just find the easy fit of these pants, the cozy wool of the jumper and the almost flats make sure you could take this outfit out and about or just laze around sipping coffee. Casual style at its best.

Both looks {excluding the items I owned} cost me less than the $100 voucher I was given to purchase the items for this post. Especially since I picked up all the items at the mid-season sale {on now!} and there was a deal going on MODA when you spend over a certain amount you received further discounts. I’m not sure if that is still running given the extra discounts. I already plan on picking up another pair of the ponte pants and the jumper in coral.
