What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 192 – Double the Plaid, Double the Fun

c640x1024
Double the plaid, double the fun.

That’s the statement of the great PRINT of double-double print plaid!

Or something super cheesy like that! ;) But seriously, this plaid pair from J.Crew Factory was just begging to be put together! And I love how vintage this print looks, and I love it even more when you pair it with modern/trendy accessories!

ps. This post had been planned for a couple weeks, but it looks like Kelly (here) and I have great minds think alike (right down to the tassel earrings). Imaginary closet post meet real life outfit wearing!

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.

Five for Friday, Vol. 191 – Fast Fix Friday

Five for Friday, Vol. 191 - Fast Fix Friday | Style On Target blog
Another speed round of Five for Friday.

Mainly because I’ve been too busy enjoying summer in the Midwest (all the farmers’ markets and all the hand-scooped ice cream, please), but also because the last thing I’ve wanted to do when I get home from working on the computer all day…is to sit down and work on the computer some more! Anyone else feel me?

So let’s make this post super quick with some recent favorites and then hit the ice cream stand, deal?! DEAL!

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 191 – Wahoo for Watermelon

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 191 - Wahoo for Watermelon | Style On Target blog
Every year, it seems that a certain fruit really has its moment. Several years ago, it was pineapples. Last year, it was definitely lemon. And this year? This year, everything’s coming up roses watermelon!

And no matter what way you slice it, the fruit makes for a particularly adorable print or accent piece (and great summer dessert). This look features three different watermelon pieces, and they all look cute together or on their own (the belt in particular would go great with a sundress)!

And when you’re wearing watermelon (versus devouring it) you don’t even have to worry about spitting out the seeds! Wahoo for watermelon!

10 Things Tuesday (7.04.17) + Fourth of July 2017

blue white old navy stripe dress + white denim jacket J.Crew Factory + tan sandals Target + J.Crew sunglasses; casual summer outfit | Style On Target blog
 

Happy Fourth of July, y’all!

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!
  5. This author totally captures my feeling about cold/off-the shoulder tops. Warning on the language, but it is hilarious. And yes, what if you want to wave your hands like you just don’t care. What. IF!
  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!
  9. On this very American holiday, here are 10 things you need in your kitchen according to the French. All the bread and cheese, please!
  10. A fun geometric print skirt to wear all summer long!
