You guys, Style On Target turned TWO yesterday!


I started this blog two years ago (on Labor Day of all holidays), because I was bored and in search of a creative outlet, and I really wanted to be a part of the community that I had read from afar (the blogging world that is). Well, 730 days later, I’m very rarely bored (full disclosure: blogging takes up a ton of time), constantly using my creative muscles, and completely in love with the community I’ve joined!

Thank you to everyone who has read a blog post (or especially, all of them…thanks Mom), left me a comment or note (I read them all even though I rarely respond), asked a question, or made a suggestion. I’ve learned so much from you all (most importantly, the best ice cream shops in each state), and I can’t wait to keep learning and growing this blog for you guys.

I honestly can’t believe that I’ve been saying dumb things on the internet for the last two years ;), so thank you all so much for your friendship and I hope you stick around for at least the next 365 days!

ps. Yes, I AGAIN bought a very large cupcake (Flying Cupcake here in Indy for the win) for this very occasion. Some day I will get those giant gold number balloons, but they’re still $10 each (I need to get into the balloon business). OUTRAGEOUS. You also can’t eat a balloon. Fact.

pps. Last year, I wore a dress and a statement necklace for my one year anniversary. I’m opting for a casual weekend look this year (gotta keep you guessing) with some of my favorite items!


  • On Target item: Merona Stripe Boatneck Tee (almost exact)
  • Headband: Forever 21 (super old; similar)
  • Purse: Michael Kors (exact)
  • Jeans: c/o American Eagle (similar)
  • Flats: Merona, Target (exact)

      Right?!?!?!! What an awesome RepliKate!!!! Good job, Katie!

  • Kim

    Just started reading your blog a couple of weeks ago, but have been enjoying it and your sensible options.

  • You have been writing this blog for two years and I’ve been reading it for almost two years (give or take a few weeks!) so yay for both of us! But mostly you!!

  • Congratulations on 2 years! I’m glad I found you! Those exact shoes arrived on my door step today, which I found after you posted about them. And I soooooo wish they had that shirt in navy and white still! I bought two of the other colors of the ones you linked to but would love navy too!

    Love your blog– and that headband! Happy blog birthday!

    Happy 2 years!! ADORABLE HEADBAND!

  • Woo hoo!! That’s so exciting! And I love the cupcake idea :) Super cute :)

  • Congratulations on the milestone! I love your outfit!

  • Sarah H.

    Good call on the cupcake over balloon. And happy blogiversary! Glad I got to meet you through the (somewhat messy and disorganized) Indianapolis style blogger community.

  • Happy blogiversary!! This whole outfit is adorable!
    Sincerely, Sara

  • Happy blog day! Love that first paragraph – pretty much sums up how I feel about blogging. Awesome. And for sure, take the cupcake over the balloon any day – way more worth it.
