Red, Pink, and White For Valentine’s Day (or Night)

Red and White For Valentine's Day (or Night)

We’re just over two weeks away from the holiday that you either love or hate depending on your relationship status, how you feel about commercialized holidays, and whether you like chocolate or not! ;)

I’m pretty “meh” about Valentine’s Day as an adult (even though I love my valentine, aka The Husband, an TON!), but I do like an excuse to shower him with love and enjoy some street tacos together, which has now become our yearly tradition. Growing up, my parents always made the day special for me. One year my dad brought me a bouquet of flowers (so sweet), and another year, my mom bought me this giant, super soft zebra print blanket that I still have.

But really I just like an excuse to wear red and hearts (no pink for me though)! So to make sure that we’re all ready to don our hearted apparel in whatever activities we’re participating in this year (date night, Galentine’s Day parties, hanging out with your cat/dog on the couch… been there, done all of them!), I’ve rounded up some perfectly festive pieces for your Valentine’s Day (just click on the item you love)!

And in the loving spirit of the holiday, I’ve included pink items on Style On Target. Gasp. :)

ps. I’m also curious how you all feel about Valentine’s Day…love it or loath it? Let me know in the comments!

24 Things From Loft I Wish Were Hanging in My Closet Right Now

loft spring 2017

I’d like to give a special shoutout to the 55+ degree days that we had this weekend in the Midwest, since it was perfect for peaceful protests, puppy walks, and parties! Which leads me to believe that spring is coming. Spring is coming. Spring is coming!

And it is bringing with it a fresh batch of new arrivals that are perfectly perfect for my closet. Especially the new pieces from Loft! The Spring 2017 collection features a whole lot of red, white, and various shades of blues, which is always a-okay in my book!

So, magic closet fairies…feel free to leave some of the below pieces in my closet. Thanks in advance! ;)

24 Winter Accessories to Help You Make It Through the Rest of Winter

DSC005511

Well, we’ve done it folks. We’ve finally reached the part of winter where I am completely over winter and ready for the three S’s (aka shorts, sandals, and sundresses).

But since the temperatures aren’t quite cooperating (but hey…it might be 50+ degrees this weekend!), I thought a post on winter accessories might help us get through the next several weeks months. From pom hats to plaid scarves to cozy socks and more, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite cold weather accessories to elevate your winter wardrobe (and keep you warm, duh).

And bonus? Most of them are on sale thanks to spring merchandise hitting the shelves!

Ready, set, bundle up! ;)

Winter Wishlist 2017

Ahh winter. I don’t want you…at all…but apparently, your official arrival is today and my distaste of you doesn’t stop you from sleeting and snowing all over my car.

So, since we have to put up with all that nonsense, I’m trying to put a positive spin on this by focusing on all the things I love about winter.

Cozy layers, sitting in front of the fireplace, setting up Christmas decorations, and stacks of sweaters.

So now that we’re all feeling better about winter, let’s dive into my winter wishlist (you know, besides days that are no colder than 50 degrees).

Top Twelve Things On My Winter Wishlist for 2016/2017:

  1. Black Watch Plaid Shirt – Can’t get enough of this pattern, and it’s perfectly acceptable to have one of everything in this plaid. That’s basically what J.Crew said this year.
  2. Tan Knit Gloves – I LOVE THESE GLOVES  (and so do many, many others…check out the reviews). I have them in black, and I thought I lost them between last winter and now, but I luckily I found them. So naturally, I need another pair and this tan will go great with my camel coat (oh and everything else…#neutral).
  3. Gray Turtleneck – I was going through my Pinterest boards the other day, and one of the items that kept coming up time and time again in many of my favorite pins was a gray turtleneck sweater. Simple piece, but a great building block for a winter wardrobe.
  4. Black Fur Earmuffs – Because if you’re having a good hair day, then you don’t want to ruin it with a hat, right?
  5. Red Puffer Vest – Even I’m embarrassed to type this, but I don’t think I need another one of these, but I love love love the red (and this black watch plaid option). What can I say…I’m am addicted to puffer vests.
  6. Black Chelsea Ankle Boots – I’ve been wearing my cognac brown ankle boots from last year over and over, so it might be nice to add a black pair into the rotation.
  7. Plaid Coat – Okay, so I already own this one, but it was the number one on my winter wishlist, so I had to include it. Other plaid options I’m loving include this one (love the red!) and this one!
  8. Houndstooth Skirt – A great staple for wearing now with tights and later without! Can you imagine the remixing potential?!
  9. Maroon Plaid Scarf – Just another way to layer up on those super chilly days.
  10. Tan Cashmere Crew Sweater – The one I linked to is a great option, but my favorite cashmere sweater will always be this option from Macy’s (especially when it goes on super sale). Tan is a great staple, but if you are looking for other colors…they have a ton of options!
  11. Burgundy Ankle Boots – Because when you already have ankle boots in black, tan, navy, and green…your next step is burgundy!
  12. Little Red Crossbody Purse – I love a good pop of color, and it is never more important than in the dreary winter. This little crossbody features both red and blue (my favorites) and has excellent reviews online! WANT.

What are you putting on your winterwishlist? Did I miss anything? Snow shovel? Ice pick?! ;)
