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

  1. News alert: Banana Republic has a bike print scarf, and I’ve already fallen in love with it and ordered it in case it sold out. Because everyone likes bike things as much as I do, right? ;)
  2. Blogger love of the week: Loved this suede skirt and loafer look from Jessica of The Steele Maiden this past week. Now I just need to find a suede button skirt that isn’t too short on these giraffe legs! ;)
  3. My goal this fall/winter? Recreate this outfit with a much cheaper cobalt blue coat. If you see one…let a girl know, won’t you?
  4. For all you (like me) who use the phrase, “I can’t even” and get made fun of…here’s an article coming to our defense…with backing from ancient Greece of all places! So keep on with your I-can’t-evens, because you know I will!
  5. What would happen if you mixed “My Heart Will Go On” (you know…Celine’s killer song from Titanic) and 50’s music? This….and it is AMAZING. 
  6. If you’re like me and can’t go three days without stripes, how about this striped duffle/weekend bag? Yes, please!
  7. I don’t know if I am that excited about the return of Full House. I like when things stay as they were, you know (I wasn’t keen on Girl Meets World either), but I did like this article on 15 secrets that you didn’t know about Full House (and BONUS: 10 celebrities who made appearances on the show).
  8. The Loft coatigan (here) that I mentioned in a previous 10 Things Tuesday post and really really loved, didn’t work out for me, but now I’ve got my eye on a more affordable option from Macy’s (here).
  9. Because the world definitely needs more positivity, here are 10 quotes about love from the late-and-great Mr. Rogers.
  10. If you’re like me and want to get in on the suede skirt trend (without breaking the bank), this skirt is super cute, comes in several colors, and is on sale! The tri-fecta!

Floral Skirt, Fall Version

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Happy Labor Day weekend, y’all! I worked this morning and then had this afternoon off to chill and relax. 3.5 day weekend? I’ll take it!
  • Be sure to check out the Labor Day sales below, it’s one of the best sales time of the fall, and they all started earlier this week, and I may have already blown my September budget…and it’s day 4.
  • And seeeeeee, I only made you wait 24 hours to find out what the number one outfit for this skirt was! I’m not that mean! ;) I love the way the ankle boots and denim jacket look with this skirt!
  • The Husband and I had our date night at a local bar this week (at Kilroys for you locals) and this shopping cart/monster truck/car hybrid drove by. No exaggeration…weirdest thing ever!
  • Special shout-out to a loyal Style On Target reader, Megan, who caught me taking blog photos on the street yesterday! It was so so SO nice to meet you, and thanks for reading along AND making me feel famous! ;)
  • Guys, football is back in less than one week, and then it is the most GLORIOUS time of the year!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Floral Skirt, Summer Version

DSC069881DSC070001DSC069981DSC070061DSC069871DSC069931DSC070091

I shared this skirt with you all in my August budget (that post here if you missed it), and you should definitely grab one or two of them RIGHT NOW.

I have a lot of plans for this skirt, but this was the number two way that I envisioned wearing it. Why am I just sharing the number two way when you all obviously deserve the number one way right this very second?

Well…because you have to wait tomorrow to see it. Bummer, I know, but you can really blame Old Navy, not me.

Because silly Old Navy started selling this skirt in the summer, and I really envisioned it for a fall look (spoiler alert: ankle boots)! However, this way is still super cute, so hopefully you don’t hate Old Navy that much.

Because you have to like them enough to order this skirt, and you have to like ME enough to check back here tomorrow to see the number one look!

And that my friends is called a To Be Continued (don’t you hate when your favorite TV shows do that?)…

When You’re Ready, Come and Get It

That title challenge up there? That’s directed at Monday aka the worst day of the week aka today (it’s also a lyric from a super catchy Selena Gomez song*).

But this week (unlike last week), I’m ready for you Monday! I’ve had a whole three days off, and I’m coming off my weekend of easy-breezy-lake vibes. Which basically means I think I can do anything.

Printer out of toner? Easy. Angry customer? Bring ’em on. 25 phones calls and 50 new unread emails? Simple.

So let’s do this Monday, I’m ready, you’re ready. Come and get it.

*ps. B and I are really dorky and have this thing where we text each other Selena Gomez lyrics when we hear one of her songs on. Does anyone else have weird inside jokes with their friends and want to share them below?!

Fair-ly Fun

Today’s fun highlights:

  • This is the first Friday that I worked all month, and first world problems, guys? This week was really really really long!
  • The Husband and I double dated this week with B and her husband, J, to the Indiana State Fair! And we had a super blast, so I just had to share some photos that I took while we were there (along with the outfit that I wore to the fair), so that you could feel like you joined us too!
  • Things that we ate (we shared nibbles of all of these): fried corn on the cob (so weird, but so good), s’mores shake (no idea who requested this ;)), grilled munster cheese on cinnamon raisin bread (salty and sweet), pork tenderloin, ice tea, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup popcorn (the best food part of the fair). Yum yum yum!
  • The fair is always delicious and fun, and it holds a special place in my heart because it’s the first place that The Husband and I held hands. Aww……
  • End the gushing, already. ;) Tomorrow is the Blueberry Party, and I’m totally going to dominate the competition with my super secret recipe (that I found on the internet). I’ll share it with you next week if it is any good (trust me, it will be), but does anyone have a guess as to what I’m making? Hint: it’s not blueberry muffins.
  • Yes, I broke down and bought the beautiful Michael Kors purse. #sorrynotsorry
  • Regular season football starts in less than four weeks. I. AM. SO. READY.
