Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I don’t need this cherry print t-shirt, but I really really like it. Like really, really, really like it!
  2. Blogger love of the week: I discovered a new-to-me blog this week (by reading through another blogger’s comments…does anyone else like to do this?)! Her name is Madison and her blog is Minnie Muse…and she can work some pattern mixing and midi skirts like no one’s business! I especially loved this nautical inspired look (perfect for red/white/blue week)!
  3. Two of the biggest trends this year? Gingham and off-the-shoulder tops…well Maison Jules has paired them together for the trendiest item ever! (And they have this gorgeous gingham dress too!)
  4. Remember when I was complaining about summer work wear? Well, J.Crew is here to help with a few tricks to beat the heat!
  5. Love these blue/white plaid pants…and the gingham ones…and the floral print ones! Gotta collect them all!
  6. Obsessing over these cherry print espadrilles! The perfect red/blue combo for my summer wardrobe (and they would look great with today’s outfit too)!
  7. There’s a new Carpool Karaoke with James Corden…this time with Selena Gomez!! It’s definitely not my favorite, but they ride in a vehicle that’s not a car…and sing a Taylor Swift song, so I’m down!
  8. I know it’s summer…and I shouldn’t be thinking about sweaters, but this new striped one from Banana Republic comes in three color combinations and is calling my name!
  9. While I didn’t score my Hamilton Chicago tickets last week (I tried really hard though, you guys), I still enjoyed reading this article about the branding process behind what is probably the most famous Broadway play ever.
  10. My quirky-print-loving-self quickly fell in love with this summer scarf! The cutest (and it fits with this week’s theme)!

Welcome to the third annual Red, White, and Blue week here on Style On Target! I hope you’re ready for some patriotic passion timed especially for the 4th of July and maybe the weirdest election year ever! ;)

But never fear, whether you support Team Donkey or Team Elephant or Team No Team, you’re welcome here…as long as you can handle a healthy dose of the colors of the American flag over the next week!

And speaking of the American flag…could I possibly look more like it if I tried?!

I think not. 

Today’s look starts us off with a bang for the rest of the week, where I think I slowly get less and less dramatic, so if today’s outfit is too much for you, never fear! It was actually pretty funny, because it was hard for me to come up with four red-white-and-blue outfits…when more than half of my closet is those colors! But never fear, I got you!

ps. I don’t know what I did before getting this little wicker clutch (similar here)! It’s perfect for every summer activity ever!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Not quite Dora’s color scheme, but definitely explorer worthy. Last time I wore this vest on the blog, my dad called me “Jungle Jane” so I figured I would beat him to the punch this time! ;)
  • This week was a blur…between booking stuff for our Europe trip, making plans to go to Nashville for the Colts/Titans game this fall, trying to get ahead on the blog, and just doing my normal tasks as an employee, wife, and dog mom…I’m exhausted!
  • Buuuuutttt……I’m off work today (yesssssss), and this weekend is Bestie Weekend! My two college besties and I are getting together for a weekend of brunches, booze, and besties…which is really all you need, right?! I think yes!
  • And the BEST week ever for this little blog is coming up next week! My favorite colors (as if you didn’t know!) are red and blue, so what better way to celebrate that and America than by having the annual Red, White, and Blue Week here on Style On Target!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Five for Friday, Vol. 137 – Summertime Happiness

five for friday summertime happiness | Style On Target

I’m not sure that Lana Del Ray really knew what she was talking about when she called her hit song, “Summertime Sadness.”

I mean sure, it’s catchy and probably earned her a lot more money that I’ll ever see in my lifetime, but does that mean she was really right?

Because, summertime to me is full of happiness…and heat, but that’s a whole nother ballgame. Full of bright and long days, picnics and barbeques, s’mores making and nights on the porch, and road trips and playlists with Lana Del Ray on them! ;)

So here’s to summer and these super happy summertime pieces!

Style Soulmates, Vol. 2

You all seemed to enjoy my first Style Soulmates post (here if you missed it), so I’m making it a monthly feature! Lord knows that I have enough pretty pins on Pinterest (follow me here) to keep it going for approximately 50 years, so let’s put those pins to good use, huh? ;)

Today’s look was inspired by this look by Daphne from Mode and the City (here). She’s probably my favorite blogger ever (all the red and blue combos definitely help her campaign), and she has the world’s second cutest dog (mine wins because the judge is biased).

Daphne’s layering skills come fall/winter are absolutely amazing, but this summer look was a bit simpler for her, which is probably why it was so easy for me to recreate it! A basic white blouse, denim jacket, and polka dot shorts is really all you need to recreate this look, and then you just add in your favorite accessories based on your own personal style preferences!

These polka dots shorts are probably my favs to wear all summer because they’re light and flowy, so any outfit inspiration that gets them on my body is a win for me. But imagine if I had a similar pair in navy and red polka dot shorts…I’d never wear anything else!  So thanks for making a casual summer outfit super easy, Daphne, by letting me steal this look (now if you could just send me your whole wardrobe…that would be great)!
