After experiencing true spring in Ireland for a week (hello rain and cooler temperatures), I’m embracing these warmer weather temperatures here in Indiana. Because it is a HECK of a lot warmer here!

Because of that (and the upcoming Memorial Day weekend next week….yesssssss), you could say that I have summer on the brain, which means it’s time for some easy, breezy pieces to take you to the beach to the BBQ to the block parties.

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 184 – Sea Side Stripes

What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 184 - Sea Side Stripes | Style On Target blog

You can take the girl out of the country for a week…but you can’t take her patriotic colors from her!

My undying love for red, white, and blue will always prevail, especially when it comes in the form of the cutest graphic tee ever. Super cute, but probably not accurate. Mainly, because, I’m not sure how often penguins and coral interact…anyone?

But tassels and jean jackets always mesh well together in the wild! ;)

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

  1. The most perfect gingham top for spring and summer!
  2. Blogger love of the week: How amazing does Nicole look in this blue/yellow combo? (The answer is SO amazing!) This might be my favorite look from her ever, and that color combination is one of my new favs!
  3. This navy tennis racquet eyelet dress might be the cutest thing I’ve seen all week. What a clever idea! Quick, somebody make all the cute things into their own eyelet prints!
  4. This purse is an affordable, vintage-inspired look and comes in two great neutral colors!
  5. 3 quick DIY projects for shoe makeovers. Seriously, how cute are these?
  6. Wore these sneakers (in navy) alllll through my trip to Ireland, and they are officially the best sneaker ever (so lightweight and comfortable)!
  7. The 24 best books to plan to read this summer!
  8. You know what would put a smile on my face during a rainstorm? Three words: gingham print umbrella. 
  9. Celebrities….freaking out about celebrities. So cute and funny.

Five for Friday, Vol. 183 – Stay True to You

Five for Friday, Vol. 183 - Stay True to You | Style On Target blog

Ahhhh trends. Can’t live with them and sometimes can’t live without them. And sure an off-the-shoulder top here and a pair of super statement earrings there is good for sartorial creativity and, you know, looking current/stylish.

But at the end of the day, most of us really just want pieces that feel , fit, and look great. And also ones that can be remixed again and again with the rest of our closet.

And these 5 pieces are definitely true to the Style On Target color palette and pattern schemes, but all special enough to not look super boring time and time again. It’s a balance, but one that I’m excited to continue to try and master!

Plus, I just really really really like those striped shorts and scallop sandals! All the heart emojis for them!
