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


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! ;)

Gift Guide for Yourself

Only three more sleeps until CHRISTMAS!

Today is the last Gift Guide here on Style On Target! Thanks for following along, and hopefully these helped you check some people off your gift list. I can’t really believe Christmas is this weekend and that this is the final gift guide of 2016!

In case you missed them here is the full list of the 2016 Gift Guides…

And here we go with this year’s final gift guide!

gift guide for yourself 2016 | Style On Target blog

The 2016 Gift Guides end with probably the easiest person to shop for (or the hardest, I guess)….yourself!

Based on what you guys have loved the most this year on Style On Target, I’ve pulled together 11 items that you AND I would love to have wrapped up under the tree. So if one of these beauties isn’t there under the tree tomorrow, you might just have to take matters into your own hands and TREAT YO SELF (click here for an explanation courtest of Parks and Recreation)!

Habitat: your house!
Loves: shopping at Target, stripes, polka dots, red/white/blue, reading Style On Target while drinking tea/coffee/hot chocolate
Dislikes: Saturdays and Sundays when there are no new posts on Style On Target ;)

Check out my picks for me yourself!

  1. Candles: Hickory Hearth and Winter Wonderland
  2. J.Crew Black Winter Chateau Parka Coat (or try this one for less!)

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).

winter style wishlist 2016 2017; Style On Target blog

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?! ;)

Gift Guide for the Working Girl

Second to last Gift Guide here on Style On Target and only one more to go in the series (it’s a good one though).  I’ll be posting a gift guide for a specific individual that you might be having some trouble shopping for. I’m going to try to keep all the gifts under $50 for sure and hopefully the majority of them in the $25-30 range. Most of the items will be from Target (because I love the heck out of that place), but if I find something I truly love elsewhere, it’ll be thrown in there too!

In case you missed them…

And here we go with this week’s guide!

gift guide for the working girl 2016; Style On Target blog

The 2016 Gift Guides continues with your favorite career minded lady. She’s second to last in our series of gift guides, but she’s never last to work. In fact, she’s probably already at the office (or still there depending on when you read this), so you might be able to sneak in some last minute shopping in while she’s making her commute.

Habitat: her office at work; her office at home
Loves: being early, her cell phone; coffee; her laptop
Dislikes: making $0.75 to a man’s $1, not having the corner office, eating lunch at her desk

Check out my picks (all $50 or under) for your favorite career gal!
