So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye

Loft palm leaf skirt + black Target tee + black vintage coach purse + red orange wedges; easy summer outfit | Style On Target
 

There’s a sad sort of clanging / From the clock in the hall / And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery, an absurd little bird / Is popping out to say “cuck-coo”
Regretfully he tell us / But firmly he compel us / To say goodbye / To you…

Dear friends, family, readers, fellow bloggers, and fans of red/blue colored outfits, dad jokes, and great budget-friendly Target finds,

Oh man, you guys, starting a blog post off with some heavy Sound of Music lyrics…can’t be good, right? This post has been a bit hard to write, but necessary too (and probably a long-time coming). So after that musical introduction to soften your hearts, let’s get into, shall we?

Style On Target’s time as a blog is coming to a close after nearly 4 years of posts. What started out as creative outlet turned into that and so so SO much more (journal, website skills, daily vent sessions, style development, and most importantly, friendship developer), and I have all of you to thank for that.

Thanks to anyone (and everyone) who has read a blog post, left me a comment or note (I read them all even though I rarely respond), asked a question, showered my outfit/style/me with compliments, or made a suggestion. I’ve learned so much from you all, and I can’t thank you enough for your time/attention/screen space for the last 4 years.

The good news is that you can’t get rid of me that easily. I’m not giving up my Instagram account (here), which I know is not the same, but it will be as close as I can get AND keep my sanity. I am planning on posting some of my daily outfits, great Target pieces, What I Wish I Wore style posts, other things/events that I’m up to, and most importantly, pictures of my dog Cooper. Plus, I occasionally throw in a few dad jokes too, so you can get your fix there. So you won’t miss out on much, and if you’re still interested in what you saw here on the blog, it will all be there (here)…just in a square format. So follow along if you’d like!

I can’t say that this is goodbye forever, because who knows what the future will hold, but I can say that I’ve enjoyed the ride immensely.

So long, farewell / Auf wiedersehen, adieu / Adieu, adieu / To yieu and yieu and yieu

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 193 – I Can’t Quit Ikat

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 193 - I Can't Quit Ikat | Style On Target blog
You didn’t think I would go long without featuring these pearl slide sandals in an outfit, right? You know I would leave you hanging like that!

So here they are, and while I think they look perfect with dresses (and skirts)…I think they might be even better at dressing up shorts. Just a touch of fancy with these pearl embellishments.

I just saw them at my local Target, so they should be dropping at your local store soon (if they aren’t there already). Or there’s always the Internet…

There is this thing called online shopping…have you heard of it!? ;)

10 Things Tuesday (7.18.17)

blue + white stripe tee + floral print scarf + navy skirt + J.Crew navy espadrilles + summer work outfit | Style On Target blog
Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Not really a summer-appropriate choice of footwear, but buy these buffalo plaid print sneakers now, before they sell out completely!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Daphne and Pixel are picture perfect in Provence! Somebody book me a ticket overseas…my wanderlust is getting out of control!
  3. The truth of my closet? J.Crew style on an Old Navy budget. So naturally, I’m all about the striped maxi dress.
  4. This striped tote bag is so on trend for fall that I can’t even handle it.
  5. Target is phasing out the Merona brand (and some others), and now I won’t have anything to wear?! Help.
  6. Fall fashions are sneaking out, and I love this floral embroidered chambray shirt! Such a fun way to dress up a great basic!
  7. 73 questions with Gigi Hadid…you guys, she’s actually really adorable (and spoiler alert…ranks her favorite Taylor Swift songs)!
  8. These pearl slide sandals are an affordable and stylish way to close out your summer wardrobe buying (also come in black here). Pretty, pretty!
  9. Has anyone else watched Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? I’m slowly making my way through the episodes (18 in each of the two seasons on Netflix), and I loving it (though also cringing through parts…we’ve all been there). I’m a musical girl through and through, so this is right up my alley!
  10. And lastly, I’m not going to bombard you with a Nordstrom sale post, but this is my favorite item in the whole sale. Two words: Suede. Jacket.

Five for Friday, Vol. 192 – Instant Outfit

Five for Friday, Vol. 192 - Instant Outfit | Style On Target blog
Oh man, I love when these Five for Friday posts turn into instant and fresh new outfits…like today’s burgundy/black combo.

Maybe not the first color combo you think of when you think of summer styling (sorry neons), but I’m a jewel-tone and neutral lover for life…so here we are!

And speaking of jewel tones…someone get me this J.Crew purse stat! It’s my favorite Signet bag….but with a flap!!! It’s part of their upcoming fall collection, and it also comes in cobalt blue (here). HOW WILL I CHOOSE?!

3 Ways to Wear: The White Jeans

3 ways to wear white jeans | Style On Target
This month in “Can Katie Style It?” – aka the 3 Ways to Wear series – we’re tackling a piece that you should hope to never be tackled in…white jeans! I mean, grass stains (coffee stains, red white stains, chocolate ice cream stains, etc.) are the worst, am I right?!

Specifically though, we’ll be working with this pair of white jeans from Gap (here -Gap jeans forever, please….thank you for the tall lengths)!

So even if you have to wrap me in saran wrap or roll me in Scotchguard to keep these white jeans pristine, let’s get going!

Ready, set, remix!
