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

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.

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!

3 ways to wear white jeans work | Style On Target blog

*Disclaimer: Only wear white jeans to work if your office allows it. Mine does but only on casual Fridays and during summer…so basically the time you want to wear white jeans!

10 Things Tuesday (7.11.17)

polka dot shorts + white blouse + denim jacket + black coach vintage purse; casual summer outfit | Style On Target
Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Did someone say red and navy polka dot print dress? 
  2. Blogger love of the week: I CANNOT get enough of Nicole and these floral print shorts of hers! Loving every look of hers with these!
  3. I decided to “up” my summer pajama game and ordered these polka dot pajamas from Target. And they are pure bliss. So soft, so fun, so perfect!
  4. This rainbow print bandana is the perfect summer accessory. All of the colors, all of the time.
  5. This. This article sums up EXACTLY how I feel about the fashion/retail industry about 90% of the time. And yes, yes please, put me down for her clothing wishlist at the end!
  6. Polka dot print pants that are perfect for work? Sign me up. 
  7. Everyone wants to be French…and everyone’s selling “the vibe” for as much as they can. I found this article to be INCREDIBLY interesting, because I am that girl that clicks every “How to be French” headline…and has even shared a few here! Just send me off to France as my “punishment” for being a sucker….with a baguette in hand of course…m’kay?
  8. I know, I know, it’s a million degrees outside, but this striped sweater is a steal…and you know you’ll want to wear it immediately when fall hits (or now if your office is as chilly as mine)!
  9. Because we ALL wish they were longer…here’s how to make your weekend seem to last longer!
  10. Anchor belt for the win.

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

  1. I will never ever get sick of mixing florals and stripes together…like this cute blouse that would easily work for both the office and the weekend!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Loving this entire suitcase that Anne has planned for her trip to Dubai (she has the best packing posts in general)…but it doesn’t look like she left me much room to fit in too! ;)
  3. Grab this vintage-style cherry print midi dress and head out for a picnic for the most pulled together look ever!
  4. Loving these new J.Crew Factory flats…perfect for summer outfits!

  6. Bought this pajama set last week on super sale…and they are amazing for summer sleep! Super lightweight and cooling! I got the black pair, but have my eye on the flamingo printed pair too!
  7. This basketball team is only open to women 80 years and older….and it is the most inspiring thing I read/watched all week. Get it, girls!
  8. I ordered this pretty white eyelet top the other day, because who doesn’t need a beautiful blouse to wear with EVERYTHING!
