Happy (floral) Memorial Day! Hope you all enjoy your day off, eat something off the grill, and most importantly, be sure to remember those servicemen and servicewoman who have lost their lives and thank a serviceman or servicewoman if you see one today!

And after you do all of that, be sure to check out the following sales to take advantage of some amazing Memorial Day weekend sales!

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….)

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Because if one pair of stripes is good, two sets of stripes are better.
  • At least that’s this girl’s motto.
  • But really this outfit came together, because these two items were laying next to each other on “the dresser” (which is really just my throw things here pile…we all have our spot), and I asked The Husband if they would look good together. He said no….which naturally made me want to prove him wrong. I think it is a success, but feel free to weigh in!
  • Fashion scoring – Husband: 0, Katie: 1.
  • Everything else scoring – Husband: 15. Katie: maybe 1, but probably not.
  • Whoop whoop! Hellllllooooo long weekend. Nice to meet you, my name’s Katie. We’re going to be the BEST of friends!
  • Except for that part where I make myself do yard work. Blech.

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

five for friday summer 2017 fruit prints | Style On Target blog

Slice the lemons, core the pineapple, and chop the strawberries. It’s time for a Five for Friday fruit salad!

You apparently can’t do summer lately without a heavy dose of fruit prints, so I’ve “picked” a few “fresh” pieces for you. You can now eat your Vitamin C and wear it out for the whole world to see!

p.s Bonus points for this whole feature from J.Crew and their summer fruit prints/pieces.
pps. Bonus BONUS points for this cute watermelon print tote!

Spotted: Madewell Was Made for Summer

Madewell was made for summer

It gets a little monotonous on this blog sometimes with all the navy, stripes, and J.Crew-inspired items/looks. I know. You know. And it’s okay. I definitely have my favorite silhouettes and styles that I gravitate to (my motto is apparently, if it’s navy…grab it before it crawls away).

But sometimes, I feel like that might get boring or predictable for you as a reader, so I wanted to shake it up (a tiny bit) today with featuring a retailer that I don’t normally wear, but love love love to walk through their store/displays…aka Madewell.

There’s something inspiring about looks that basically just consist of a tee and shorts, but still are “elevated” (whatever that means, right?). Basics that aren’t basic, you know? And no one does unbasic basics and summer styles quite like Madewell.

Easy, breezy, and only a tiny bit of navy in sight…here are my top 24 picks from Madewell this season. ;)

ps. Vacation clutch here…that makes me want to take a permanent vacation.

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 185 – Prints and Patterns

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 185 - Prints and Patterns | Style On Target blog

The moment I saw this tee on J.Crew Factory’s site, I knew I wanted to feature it in a What I Wish I Wore post.

And that time…that time is now! So feast your eyes on this pretty little tee and imagine wearing it with everything this summer. White skirt (duh, see above)? Jeans? Colorful maxi skirt? Denim skirt? Chino shorts?

Yes. Yes. And more yes.

ps. I bought this white skirt, and it is a STUNNER (and completely NOT see-through). And yes, it has my favorite skirt feature…pockets.
