Stripes, Cities, and a Red Flare Skirt

old navy city tee + denim jacket + red Loft skirt + stripe espadrilles | Style On Target blog

Today’s fun highlights:

  • It’s Friiiiiiiiiddaaaaayyyy (said in my best Oprah voice)!!!!
  • It’s pouring rain outside, and I’m snuggled up under a blanket (because my husband won’t stop blasting the AC) and blogging on my couch with a snoring puppy beside me.
  • THIS. IS. THE. LIFE. And I mean that 100% sincerely.
  • I’m newly obsessed with the Fresh Bamboo candle from Bath and Body Works. Anyone else love that one (or have any other favorite scents to share)?!
  • We saw Miike Snow on Tuesday this week, and I have never felt so old and so young at the same time. Thanks to long car rides in Utah last year with my brother, I knew most of the newer songs and enjoyed the show. And I of course danced my butt off to Genghis Khan (here – their most famous song).
  • No big plans over here this weekend, but next week is Red, White, and Blue week here at Style On Target. And as long as it stops raining this weekend, I should have some new outfits for you…but until then, enjoy this shot from one of my favorite looks from last year (full post here)!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Five for Friday, Vol. 189 – Fun Fun Fun

And she’ll have fun fun fun / ‘Til her daddy takes the T-bird away

And don’t worry, even if your daddy takes the T-bird away (or you know, doesn’t have one…), you can still have fun in the summer. I promise! ;)

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 189 – Pops of Color

Or alternatively titled…what an off-duty art teacher might wear…hah!

This isn’t my typical color palette to don, but there’s something about the greens, yellows, and purples in this look that I’m really loving. Maybe it is because I was born in the land of Mardi Gras

Or maybe it’s because I had a brief stint in the art cabin at the summer camp that I worked out…before they determined that was NOT my expertise and sent me to the lake. ;)

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

  1. I’m going to need this plaid skirt…right about now!
  2. Blogger love of the week: From one Katie to another, I’m loving this casual summer look from Katie of Little Black Book! I’d wear it to a summer BBQ or outdoor concert in a heartbeat!
  3. Two great fruit print finds for your daily dose of fruit: this adorable fit-and-flare watermelon dress (here) and this orange print blouse (here).
  4. These are probably the least summer appropriate shoe, but I love these suede mule slides! I don’t know if they are exactly my style, but they come in 4 colors and two of those are my favorite colors ever…so maybe that is a sign?
  5. The sweetest, most simplest commercial ever. All the awwwws.
  6. An ideal skirt for easy summer work outfits (and bonus, it comes in two different colors)!
  7. Ed Sheeran. James Corden. Carpool Karaoke. So much talent.
  8. Not sure how to process this, but this is a rechargeable clutch that has a scallop trim. Get you a clutch that can do it all (aka charge your phone, hold your stuff, and look cute too)!
  9. 18 products that Sephora employees buy for themselves!
  10. This maxi dress print is a dream, and I’m just going to pretend I could own it for more than two wears without spilling coffee, tacos, or ice cream all over it! ;)

Summer 2017 Wishlist

Summer-summa-summer time!

Wednesday is the technically the first official day of summer, even though Indiana has already had many days over 90 degrees already (hello global warming)! I’m ready for porch sitting, pool swimming, sunglasses wearing, watermelon eating, and all of these summer items below.

But specifically that navy eyelet dress…which has been my favorite piece this summer!

summer 2017 wishlist | Style On Target blog

Top Twelve Things On My Summer Wishlist for 2017:

  1. New Summer Hat – I’ve had my old standby for years now, and it might be time to replace it with a new model. A classic fedora is always a great option!
  2. White Sleeveless Blouse – I’ve been looking for something just like this to wear under blazers at work and with skirts on the weekend. Simple pieces like this help me beat the summer heat/air-conditioning battle!
  3. Neutral Braided Belt – Light and bright and perfect for cinching in all the summer dresses without weighing you down! And this one is ridiculously affordable!
  4. Eyelet Shirt Dress – This was my birthday dress for 2017. It’s navy (comes in two other colors), has pockets, and is soooooooo pretty. Check, check, and check.
  5. Embroidered Tee –  Print-mixing without even lifting a finger…and can’t beat that color combo.
  6. Tan Espadrille Wedges – I bought these in navy last year, so when I found a pair on Poshmark in my size for under $20, I scooped them up! They’re actually ridiculously comfortable for heels, and I love how they go with everything and anything and look a bit more sophisticated than flip flops (not that there is anything wrong with those!)!
  7. Patterned Shorts – I’m not the biggest shorts fan (strong thighs for days, y’all), but you can’t survive on skirts and dresses all summer long, so I’ve been looking for some new shorts. And these paisley ones are prrrreeeetttty!
  8. Black Sandals – This one is simple enough. I have a favorite pair of cognac brown sandals that are so comfy, and I wear them ALLLL the time. So basically I need a black-colored version to be all those things too. You know, for variety! ;)
  9. White Denim Skirt – This is another one of those pieces that I have in another color (aka regular blue denim) and wear to death, so I know I would get a lot of use of another one in another versatile color. Or you know, just spill a ton of coffee on! ;)
  10. Blush Sunglasses – No I don’t know what is wrong with me either…but I just think these are the prettiest pair of sunglasses ever! And I think they look especially pretty with all these summer pieces!
  11. Straw Purse/Clutch – I have this clutch already from J.Crew and love it, but I’m in search of a circle straw/rattan purse, because I’m loving that summer trend right now (I’ve got my eye on this one)! The ideal way to finish off your summer outfit!
  12. Statement Earrings – Move over, statement necklaces. Statement earrings are making their move for top jewelry trend this season. There are so many good ones out there right now, but these are my favs. I bought the similar pair (here) from the SugarFix line at Target, but these are the original beauties!

Doesn’t everything look so pretty together? Blue, white, and neutrals for life, my friends!

What are you putting on your summer wishlist? Did I miss anything on mine that you have on yours?
