3 Ways to Wear: The Floral Shorts

3 ways to wear J.Crew floral shorts | Style On Target blog

This month in “Can Katie Style It?” – aka the 3 Ways to Wear series – we’re taking on a piece that I’m considering adding to my own closet…a pair of floral shorts. Specifically, these ridiculously cute J.Crew floral shorts with tie belt (here)!

Do I only want these because Nicole has them (here for how she first styled them) and I want to be as cool and cute as her? Yes…absolutely. So I stole her shorts…and her stripe-mixing skillz (yes, with a z) for this post.

Call it swiping her style…call it inspiration, just don’t call me too late to order these shorts from J.Crew with my reward points. ;)

Ready, set, remix!

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

  1. Where oh where have these striped wedge sandals been all my life?
  2. Blogger love of the week: Dear Ashley, can I please borrow this whole outfit…and then I’m going to need a trip to Italy to go with it too! ;)
  3. If you’re like me and looooove peonies…you should probably buy this faux floral arrangement so that you can enjoy them all year long. 
  4. Two words that are sure to get your attention….gingham shirtdress. Yes, please!
  5. Someone get me a bucket of popcorn (and let’s be honest…probably some tissues), this looks like the cutest movie ever. And everyone needs a daily reminder to be kinder, right….let this be today’s reminder!
  6. This little white eyelet scarf is the perfect, simple topper for all your summer looks. Easy and breezy. 
  7. More cuteness right here…elephants rushing to meet another elephant! How welcoming and sweet!
  8. My new favorite coffee travel tumbler (and others like it) are on super duper sale. Score them while you can, they’re GREAT at keeping beverages warm and are so cute!
  9. I saw this video last week scrolling through Facebook and had to share, because it’s basically pure joy! This girl and her passion for ventriloquy are so cute,  I almost cried during it, and I hope she wins the whole thing!
  10. Major heart eyes for these patterned espadrilles that are under $50 and oh so cute! Now, I could only narrow down what pattern I want!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Guh, tell me this isn’t the most summer outfit ever? It might be one of my favorite looks on Style On Target!
  • It’s a full-on parade of summer 2017 trends: gingham + fruit print + straw clutch/purse + a fedora!
  • And yes, the fitting room attendant lady at Target told me this was the cutest outfit ever when I went to try on ALL the dresses ever last weekend (ended up with this one in the multi-colored floral…love it)!
  • Indy folks, we tried a new burger place in Broad Ripple last night called Burger Fuel. 1.) It was preeeeettttyy dang good and 2.) it’s apparently a New Zealand chain that decided to put its first US chain…in good old Indianapolis, IN (whaaaaat)!
  • No plans here for the weekend. Both The Husband and I have had pretty stressful work weeks, so we’re planning to lay low and enjoy some video gaming (for him) and some puppy cuddles (for me).

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

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

  1. In my search for a straw/wicker circle bag, I discovered this beauty from Free People. It’s a little bit pricey, which has me holding off on pulling the trigger to order it, but I think it is so lovely!
  2. Blogger love of the week: How amazing does Nicole look in these floral J.Crew shorts? I mean…c’mon! Off to buy all the tie-waist shorts ever…
  3. Obsessing over these embroidered mules.
  4. And trying to justify these striped heels for my June budget.
  5. Things I will audibly “awwwww” at: when the Prime Minister of Canada builds a fort with a 5-year-old girl. And also when she shares what she would do if she was the prime minister (so wise!). 
  6. This pom-pom charm is the best (and affordable) way to add some flair and freshen up an old bag!
  7. How to pack your carry-on suitcase like a pro (perfect timing for all those summer vacations)!
  8. All the tassel trimmed skirts (here) and tassel trimmed shirts (here), please!
  9. Favorite new to me blog? History in High Heels…her style reminds me of a pastel Jess from New Girl (in the best way possible), and I want her to take me on ALL of her European adventures!
  10. You guys know I love a good shirtdress, and this one from the Who What Wear line at Target is ammmmazing (and such a great value). It comes in three different prints and a chambray option (though I tried both a print and the chambray on, and I think the prints drape a bit better)!

ps. You knew I wouldn’t let a patriotic holiday pass without some more red, white, and blue outfit combinations, right? You know me so well! Plus, you can wear the dress like this today and throw on the blazer and some heels tomorrow for work! Presto, change-o! ;)

pps. That. Sun. Flare. Though! (and no, I couldn’t recreate it again if I tried….)
