Fall Capsule #1: Horsing Around (Again)

DSC085991DSC086001DSC085971DSC085941

Guys, I’m officially a style blogger now! I bought a used, but still fancy “style blogger lens” (aka a 50mm f/1.8 Mid-Range Lens) one and half weeks ago, and I’m slowly but surely learning how to use it.

I shot about 3 outfits before I think I figured out some of the tricks, so the next couple of outfit photos might be a bit overexposed (read super white and light), so bear with me.  I’m really hoping that this takes my blog to the next level, plus it’s kind of fun to figure stuff out like that (I think? ;)).

Anyways, the browns and navys of this outfit were calling my name one early morning in my closet, so I had to give in and let them hang out together.

ps. Any tips and tricks on working with this type of lens?

Fall Capsule #1: Gingham and Lace

DSC083321DSC083381DSC083401DSC083391DSC083361DSC083371

A touch of lace and a whole bunch of blue? Yes and yes.

Obviously, this week I’ve been big on layering and pants. It’s all a part of my fight to stay warm all winter long.

I’m pretty sure it takes a conscious effort to not pull pants out of my closet every single day during the next few months. I love skirts and dresses, specifically the ones in my capsule wardrobe, but they’re harder to coordinate with tights and extra layers, etc.

Pants? They’re just easy….and Katharine Hepburn wore them, so you can too!

ps. My mom and I are making holiday cookies next week. Does anyone have a favorite recipe to share? Let me know in the comments, please!

Fall Capsule #1: Gingham and Gold

This is about as “prep-tastic” as I get. The J.Crew gingham shirt, the gold glitter belt, and the oversized watch are staples of the southern prep style blogs out there, but I like to think that I kept it cool with my navy hat and these INCREDIBLE boots from Loft that just arrived in the mail this week.

A perfect blend of “like totally, y’all” and fall street city style.

This from the girl that was born in Louisiana and spent 22 years of her life in Indiana. Yeah, I know my stuff…

ps. Linking up with these lovely ladies: Grace from Gracefullee Made, Elizabeth from Book of Leisure, and Brenna from Chic Street Style.

Fall Capsule #1: Basic

DSC074891DSC074931DSC074911DSC075011

Guys, I’m so “basic” (reference this list for more information). I found that list a few months back, and I nearly fit every single one of them (except, I’ve never watched a full episode of Friends or Gilmore Girls, shocking…I know). Specifically #4, 23, 32, 36, and 47. But most of all….#1. Oh my word, definitely #1.

You know what is also basic? This outfit. Which is a-okay with me. This whole challenge was about taking my style, developing it, and utilizing things in my closet that I would like to keep in there for a long time. I can definitely see myself wearing variations of this outfit for a long time to come.

Until Kate Middleton tells me not too…

Red, White, and Blue, and Leopard Too

DSC057181DSC057051DSC056991DSC057001DSC056971

Welcome to Red, White, and Blue week here at Style On Target, where basically I just use this upcoming patriotic holiday as a chance to wear my favorite color combination on repeat.

I wore this look last week on Thursday, where we randomly had jeans at work, but it was way too hot, so I chose a skirt, which is now my summer default. I had originally thrifted this skirt last year to distress it and have a cool distressed skirt, but then realized that I’m not that cool and then probably couldn’t wear it to work. So it stayed fancy (or as fancy as a denim pencil skirt could be), and now I have this look.

Slightly preppy, slightly sassy, and slightly patriotic, which is exactly how I would describe my style on any given day. Win, win.
