What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 179 – Strawberry Fields

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 179 - Strawberry Fields | Style On Target blog

I know if you’re a long-time reader, you’re SHOCKED that there is a pink apparel item on this blog, but trust me…aliens have not invaded this blog. Which is of course what an alien would say if they were writing this post and trying to trick you.

But would an alien tell you a dad-joke about strawberries? I think not. So here we go…

A bank was robbed this morning at gunpoint…They suspect it was a strobberry.

So now that you know it’s really me (#dadjokesforever), we can get back to this cute outfit I made you (and you pink-loving lovelies).

Because really, it’s much more peach-ish on the internet…so I can handle it. Plus, that little strawberry is tooooooo cute to pass up, and the rest of the items are true-Katie colors and styles, so it’ll work for this imaginary outfit post.

Plus, it’s berry good to shake it up every now and then, right? ;)

ps. Happy Anniversary to The Husband. Thanks for putting up with me as your wife for three whole years! You deserve at least three beers for that! ;) I love you berry much….okay I’ll see myself out now! ;)

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

  1. An adorable (and navy) anchor sweatshirt? Yes, please!
  2. Blogger love of the week: My dear friend Sarah is KILLING it lately. I’ve been pinning every one of her looks lately, but this floral maxi dress and ankle boots look is PERFECTION!  And it doesn’t hurt that her beautiful dress is from Target!
  3. These might be the cutest pair of heeled sandals I have seen. The pastel colors, the circle cutout straps, the block heel. Can they get any more unique and fun?! I think not…
  4. This is EXACTLY how I feel about off-the-shoulder, bare shoulder, peek-a-boo shoulder, cold-shoulder, and one shoulder tops (and seriously, stay away from my summer dresses). Move along, please. But that’s the best part about trends…sometimes you love them, sometimes you loathe them!
  5. I can’t remember if I already linked to it or not, but this circle bag from Madewell is the bag of my summer dreams.
  6. Gimme this navy plaid midi dress…it’s made for my closet!
  7. Be right back, buying this castle across the pond.
  8. Definitely do not need these gingham print flats, but definitely still want them! So cute!
  9. Did you guys hear the news that Jenna Lyons is leaving J.Crew? I can’t tell now whether or not that’s good news for the brand or not, but either way, it is definitely the end of an era. Man Repeller wrote a lovely tribute to her and all the ways she might have subtly changed up the fashion game!
  10. This eyelet collar sweater is GORGEOUS, affordable, and comes in 4 different colors. And yes, I want them all!

Spotted: Old Navy and Gap (and Banana Republic) No Exclusions Sale!

no exclusions sale gap and old navy; Style On Target blog

Well hellllloooooo there, spring. So good to see you!

The spring weather may have been GREAT this weekend, but the spring styles and prices  in today’s sale MIGHT be better! Because apparently the Gap family of brands (Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic) are throwing out the rules and doing a sale that they’ve never done before. Aka 40% off everything with no exclusions!

That means Pixie pants (here) are included in the sale…which never happens. That also mean Gap jeans (here) are included in the sale…which also NEVER EVER happens! Oh…and everything else! And you have under 24 hours to take advantage…and if the sale wasn’t good enough already, you get free 2-day shipping too. Just use the code SPRING when you go to checkout, and tell ’em Style On Target sent you!

Just kidding on that last part, but the code will work!. ;)

Since Old Navy and Gap are in my normal price points, I’ve picked my favorite current pieces from each place and laid them out for you below, but don’t forget that the sale includes Banana Republic too!

First up is Old Navy, who really is just KILLING it lately. I ordered a few pairs of Pixie pants for work, these leopard print pumps (here – just to check the quality), and this super pretty dress (here) that I plan to live in this spring/summer. Check out the rest of my favorites below!

Old Navy Top Picks

And while I haven’t shopped at Gap lately, I love their recent turnaround in style. It’s almost like Old Navy is trying to appeal to the fun J.Crew lovers, while Gap is tackling the Madewell crowd. As for me, I’m into both style genres, so bring it on!

It’s the Freaking Weekend, Baby I’m About to Have Me Some Fun

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Just kidding, I’m doing YARD WORK this weekend. The bane of my existence. How is it that someone who is so bad at growing good things can manage to grow the massive amount of weeds already in my backyard? #help
  • But this print-mixing, all-favorite-colors outfit is kind of making up for it….and the fact that I am going on a double date for brunch tomorrow morning.
  • And I honestly can’t stop wearing these shoes with every single outfit. I thought they would be hard to pair with items, but it’s almost too easy! I scored these off of Poshmark and would highly recommend searching for a pair of your own! Or we can all write a letter to J.Crew to get them to bring them back! I’m sure they love fan mail!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Five for Friday, Vol. 178 – Paint with All the Colors of the Wind

Five for Friday, Vol. 178 - Paint with All the Colors of the Wind; color for spring 2017 | Style On Target blog

How pretty and cheerful do all these colors look? After a long season of drab winter shades and drab winter scenes, it’s so refreshing to see bright blue skies and lush green lawns…and sandals, skirts, and accessories in every color you can imagine.

So while, I certainly can’t paint with all the colors of the wind (how do you get it to stay on your palette), I can throw in all the colors of the rainbow into a blog post and call it a day.

Presto, change-o. Blog post! ;)
