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.

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

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

  1. The most perfect pair of gingham shorts.
  2. Blogger love of the week: Alissa is a plant lady with plant print pants…and I’m ALL for it! (ps. Alissa, I am also one of those people who goes all all into one thing and then onto the next one. I. Get. It!)
  3. I scream, you scream, we all scream…for this preppy anchor print skirt (or try the matching cardigan – here)!
  4. The cutest little striped purse for summer weekends!
  5. Kinda into Harry Styles’s album (here) and Miley Cyrus’s new song, Malibu (here) lately. What is happening to me?! (Anyone else?)
  6. Great stripes and great reviews on these peep-toe flats (and a neat way to trend up a basic staple)!
  7. If you didn’t hear, Pippa Middleton (you know, Kate’s sister) got married, and she looked gorgeous. Check out her dress here!
  8. The perfect skirt for Red, White, and Blue Week here at Style On Target…and good for every other day too! 
  9. Follow these Instagram accounts and you might develop a case of permanent wanderlust (but really, they all are great accounts to follow)!
  10. A very affordable, very adorable straw bag (like seriously, buy this now before it sells out)!

What’s this, you say? A new outfit post? On Style On Target? Say whaaaaaat?

But yes, I’m back (back again…Katie’s back, tell your friends) and wearing my new favorite dress EVER! This was actually suppose to be my “birthday dress” (and still will be), but that’s still 20-ish days away. And that’s tooooo long for this impatient lady to wait.

So I figured there was no time like the present (pun intended)…and busted out my birthday dress for work last week!

It’s honestly the perfect piece for my closet (navy, classic shape, works with stripes, POCKETS!). For work, I covered up with a blazer, but I can’t wait to wear it on its own all summer long!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Can you believe that I was thisclose to sending this skirt back? What was past Katie thinking? This skirt is obviously a winner…and has pockets…duh! ;)
  • The Husband bought me this beautiful gray purse for our third anniversary this month (leather is the traditional 3rd anniversary gift). His extensive research was…stalking this blog. And he nailed it, because I absolutely love it! It’s a keeper, and he’s a keeper!
  • And if you’ve been eyeing this purse (and my other two ones just like it in red and yellow)…I can’t recommend it enough! Perfect size, soft leather, and no logos. And did I mention it is 30% off today? Go go go!
  • This weekend, I’m driving up north to have lunch with my mom (hopefully my car decides to make it this time) and getting packed and geared up (aka buying all the magazines) for our trip to Ireland in one week! CANNOT. WAIT!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Spotted: J.Crew Factory Finds

j.crew factory finds, spring 2017

You guys. J.Crew Factory is in it to win it right now.

And by win it, I mean the spring shopping season, because their stuff is GOOD right now. Classic patterns and prints (plus some with a fun twist), great colors (cough – red, blue, and white – cough), and beyond affordable prices.

While I’m making heart eyes at allllll the items below, I can personally vouch for the red striped skirt (here – and yes, it has pockets) and the new gingham short-sleeve popover top (here). They’re about as good as you can get for under $50!

I’ve rounded up 24 of my favorite items below that would look right at home in my closet….which means that J.Crew Factory should really go ahead and send them to me.

I promise to take care of them, and I’m sure my veterinarian would give me a good referral! ;)
