Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:
- Loving this affordable army green safari-inspired shirt dress. Perfect for easy summer dressing!
- Blogger love of the week: Omg. Sarah looks ridiculously amazing in this burgundy outfit. Burgundy for spring…who knew? (Apparently, Sarah…that’s who).
- I’m going to need these woven loafers as soon as possible please! They would be so cute with skirts/dresses now and jeans later!
- I’m slowly turning into a mini-plant lady (thanks to my mom and bestie, B, for teaching me all your tricks), and these little fruit planters ARE THE CUTEST THINGS EVER! Yes, that needed to be yelled. No, I’m not sorry! ;)
- And because it is Red, White, and Blue Week…here are 10 patriotic cocktails for your Fourth of July celebrations!
- Pair one of those cocktails with this skirt (in either the red or blue version) with a white tee and a pair of sandals, and you’ll have next Tuesday covered!
- The new police recruits in Taiwan are awfully hairy…and ridiculously cute!
- I am really really really into these embroidered flats. The plot twist…they’re 45% pink. What do I do?!
- People helping other people will always make me smile, and so this video that my mom shared of a community project called “Lunch On Me” had to be shared! Good-hearted people are the BEST, right?! :)
- A pretty white perforated crossbody is EXACTLY what I need for summer.
Welcome to the fourth annual Red, White, and Blue Week here on Style On Target! It’s a whole lot of patriotic looks…but it is also how my closet looks the other 51 weeks of the year! ;)
We’re kicking the week off with a pairing of these super affordable sneakers (here – so affordable…so it is okay if you drop ice cream on them…guilty!) and my favorite dress ever from J.Crew (dear J.Crew team, please bring this back in yellow and red next year….I WILL buy).
It’s a perfect, Americana look for wearing all day on Fourth of July….from socializing to s’mores eating to sparkler waving.
Land of the free, home of the
Today’s fun highlights:
- I’m all about the juxtapose of tough jackets with feminine dresses lately. Sassy and sweet…just the way my grandmas like me. ;)
- This week was a whirlwind of going-out events. Monday, the Indy bloggers got together at Punch Bowl Social, and it was super fun to catch up with everyone, meet some new folks, and get my bowl on!
- And then Wednesday, The Husband and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary with some leather gifts (third anniversary tradition, according to the internet…I got a stunning gray J.Crew purse that I’ll be sure to share soon) and a seafood dinner at Salt on Mass (not sure I would fully recommend it, Indy folks…though they did give us a free and delicious salted caramel brownie for dessert!). I’m a lucky lady (and a cheeseball for sure), but that husband of mine is a catch, and I’d marry him again in a heartbeat.
- And today I’m off work and running a million errands this weekend! Cooper to the vet for his yearly check, haircut for me, and dentist for me too (blech). But luckily I also get to see my mom for lunch…these are the perks when you still drive 2 hours to treat with your childhood dentist. Does anyone else still do this…or just me? ;)
Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?
What do you do when your mother nicely hems a dress for you? You promptly manage to not featured it on the blog foooorrrr…I don’t know…maybe 8 months? #whoops
But look Mom, I’m wearing it now! ;)
This beautiful olive green dress used to be this maxi dress (last seen here). Though I loved the way it looked as a maxi dress (so Grecian, right?), I knew I would wear it much, much more once it was safely above my knees.
Because while these giraffe legs are great and all, they make lots of things difficult. Like walking (in general), but specifically walking while constricted by the fabric length of a beautiful maxi dress.
So Mom, olive you a lot for hemming this dress and saving me from myself/legs. Oh, and for about a billion other more important reasons and things. <3
ps. These Old Navy d’orsay pumps look like a million bucks and are super affordable (they do run big though, as a warning)!
