One Outfit, Two Ways

Suede Skirt and Black LoafersYou know those trips to Target that never go as planned? Well, I had one of those last week. I was running in to grab some cough drops and other medicine (#winterishere…well, kind of) and naturally took a route I didn’t need to and ended up in the shoe department. I spotted these loafers and over the knee boots pretty quickly. While I’ve been trying to live by the motto ‘fewer better things’ recently and I didn’t really need new shoes, I had been looking for a few more flat options to wear to work. Apparently part of getting older is that I can’t wear heels as frequently as I used to because my knees will hurt. After trying them on, both pairs got added to my cart immediately, and then I finally found the aisle I needed, on the other side of the store.

I loved the loafers so much that I went and picked up a pair for my mom this weekend.

I will say that the ties on the back of the boots are pretty long so I’ve been tucking them in the back. I may trim them down a bit if they keep bugging me, but for the price, I don’t have much to complain about.

What’s your best ‘I didn’t go to Target for this’ purchase?

    So cute! Definitely buying those boots soon! My feet grew a little bit with pregnancy so I have an excuse! 🙂

  • Thank you all so much for the love this weekend. We are definitely still navigating life at home with a newborn but our hearts couldn’t be more full. And watching Bill as a Dad has me like 😍 all day long. We’re so grateful for our guardian angels watching over us as we start this new chapter. Right after the delivery, there was a knock at the door, and while I couldn’t see who was dropping something off, I heard the nurses say “Thank you, Rosie”. How’s that for a sign that my mom was with us the whole time?
  • Ainsley Rose surprised us with an early arrival last night, and we couldn’t be more in love 💗
  • Celebrating three years of marriage today (just short of 10 years together) and under a month until we’re a family a three. I’m having a moment over here ❤️ grateful for you every day, @williamritt. 📷 by @juneandjae
  • While I may have strained my back moving things around the nursery this week, this corner still makes my heart happy. My mom found the dressers we’re using on Craigslist when I was in college, and we gave them a quick facelift with some new paint and knobs. I remember telling her how great they’d look in a nursery one day. And because she and her friends had quite the inside joke about penguins, naturally I needed these adorable prints that we’ll get around to hanging one day (thanks, Auntie Al @allisonhaslee).
  • Going to bed feeling extra grateful after today’s baby shower for our sweet girl. We have the most incredible family and friends who have been more supportive than we ever could have imagined these last few months. Can’t believe we get to meet her in under two months 💗 http://liketk.it/2wWi5 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #tuckernucking #32weeks #ltkbump
