Today’s fun highlights:

  • Honestly, I’ve lost track of how many days/ways I’ve worn this dress. My bestie, B, keeps asking me…”You’re wearing that dress again?!” And yes, B, but here is yet another way to wear it!
  • I have not lost track of what day it is though! FRI-YAY, indeed! This week has been killer busy at work, and I’m so glad to see the weekend! Summer days at work should just be outlawed, you know?
  • This weekend, we’re headed up north to Michigan to join The Husband’s family for a long weekend trip. We haven’t seen them in AGES, so I’m excited to see how much my niece has grown and catch up with the rest of the family.
  • Annnnnnd I’m going “deep lake” fishing for the very FIRST time. Which obviously means that I’ll come back with the biggest catch right? Beginner’s luck? ;)

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Five for Friday, Vol. 142 – Peek Into Fall

five for friday peek into fall

It’s commmmming!

Fall that is. Definitely not winter, you crazy Game of Thrones fans, you.

And while the temperatures may not feel that way, retailers will have you thinking otherwise, since fall collections are popping up all over the place. I’ll have a more detailed post on Monday about my fall favorites, but I figured today we could ease our way into thinking about fall with a sneak peak at some of my favorite pieces that are what I like to call “fall-inspired” and that can easily be worn now and later.

So don’t worry, we don’t have to dive right into drinking pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, and leaf raking right away.

Thank goodness, right? Especially that leaf raking part! ;)

Style Soulmates, Vol. 3

Today’s Style Soulmates look was nearly stolen right off the back of Jacey from Damsel in Dior (see the original look here). So thanks, Jacey!

This outfit was the very first outfit that I had pinned after buying this skirt from J.Crew Factory, because it is (slightly funny enough) the same exact skirt! The original one is from J.Crew, and I waited approximately one year later and managed to snag it up for 1/3 of the price from J.Crew Factory…when it was on super sale@

#winning. See sometimes, I can demonstrate extreme amounts of patience…at least when it comes to clothes!

July 2016 Budget

Honestly, guys. I’m shocked again that another month has passed by so quickly! I barely had any time to shop! It’s been scorching hot here in Indiana lately, so I haven’t felt the need to empty my wallet for too many new fall clothes yet, but you know that will change soon! #cannotwait

Check out July’s budget below to see the damage:

july 2016 budget Style On Target

July 2016 Budget
+ Old Navy Green Maxi Dress – $17 ($37 originally – discounted price – 40% off sale – here)

+ Charming Charlie Red Wayfarer Sunglasses – $9 ($9 originally – here)
+ Merona Black Knotted Belt – $0 ($17 originally – gift card – here)
+ Merona Chambray Sleeveless Top – $16 ($23 originally – 30% off Fourth of July sale – here)
+ The Limited Lemon Print Skirt – $35 ($70 originally – 50% off coupon in the mail – here)

Amount Under/Over: +$44.50 = $200 – $155.50
Total Saved: $101.50 = $257 (if not on sale) – $155.50
Item Count: 9
Carryover to Next Month: $270 = $226 + $44

Oh man guys, I ordered a ton of new things this month, and then disappointingly, returned most of it! I just am getting more particular about the things I want hanging in my closet or I just have too many things hanging in my closet. Probably both…depends on if you ask me or The Husband! ;)

Also this month in my shopping adventures, I met a blog reader when I was buying the sunglasses (hi Leah!), successfully conned my mom into hemming my green maxi dress (thanks Mom!), and bought and wore my first midi skirt (to be blogged later)! Woot woot!

I also cannot recommend those chambray shirts from Target enough! They are made with Tencel material, which makes them fluid and not stiff, which is EXACTLY what I was looking for in a new chambray shirt. And yes, I needed both the sleeveless and the long sleeve version. Because have you been outside in Indiana lately? #hot

The knot belt I bought last month was sooooo good in brown that I decided I need it in black. Because nothing is easier than a belt that knots itself…and that you bought with a birthday gift card. ;)

And yes, I bought a shirt that is from the men’s department that has little puppy dogs on it.  I don’t even care how many times I wear it…cost-per-wear be darned. I’m all about the cute animal graphic prints for life, y’all!

Things That Didn’t End Up Working
+ This brown Old Navy dress – Super burlap sack fitting on me. Ick. That is all.
+ This floral print Loft dress – Umm. If you like pink, buy this dress. It is GORGEOUS. I do not like pink, and did not realize HOW pink it was going to be….which is why it did not stay in my closet. But it is still a SUPER pretty dress.
+ This gray tweed Loft dress – minus the pockets, I might have kept this dress, but the pockets added so much bulk to the bottom portion of the dress!

I’m sure next month will be the month that I buy ALL THE THINGS, because I love shopping for fall clothes, and I already know I have a few orders shipping in from Loft and Nordstrom that I didn’t count in this month (since my return rate has been so extreme lately).

How did you do this month on your budget? What did you score from the Nordstrom sale? I’m linking up with Franish’s Budgeting Bloggers, and you should too!

Nordstrom Sale Post – Under $100?

nordstrom anniversary sale under $100 picks | Style On Target

If you read more than one style blog, you’ve probably seen approximately 8 millions posts recently on the Nordstrom sale, and here I am to drop one more on you.

Ugggggh. I’m the worst, I know.

But this one is a tiny bit different, because it is made with love (xoxo), not a single item in this roundup is pink…and all but one item is under $100 (but the item that is over $100 is one of my favorites…shocker).

I love fall, and I love how Nordstrom does this sale, because who wants to wait for fall to pass them by and then finally be able to snag up their favorite fall pieces for a discounted rate…only to have to wait to wear them in fall 2017? Not this girl…I want to wear my fall pieces NOW.

So without further adieu, here are my top 24 picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Happy shopping, and let me know what you end up getting! I personally ordered this quilted jacket and these leggings (just to see what the hype is about)!

And just a reminder, prices go back to normal on August 5…

ps. My over $100 piece pick is the camel wool coat from Ralph Lauren…it reminds me a lot of my J.Crew Factory coat (seen here and here), so if you have been looking for one like that…now might be your chance!
