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! 🙂

  • We’ve been slowly making this house a home for a year and a half now. And while I’ve been investing in new furniture over time (hello, king size bed, couches, coffee tables and a dining room table and chairs and more), sometimes you just need to rely on @homegoods and @target to help freshen up a little corner that’s been filled with random stacks of paper and baby gear for far too long. http://liketk.it/2ArAP @liketoknow.it #liketkit #LTKhome #hearthandhand #targetstyle
  • I realize this may not be the most festive outfit, but I needed to document that I wore something besides my go-to button up top or work clothes. Plus, all of my effort went into Ainsley’s outfit changes for her first St. Partick’s Day ☘️ Slainte, friends! http://liketk.it/2AxUW #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Never underestimate the cuteness of a wrist roll.
  • Ainsley’s nursery is finally on the blog! I’m sharing all of the product details and a few stories I can now laugh about like when I cried in Target over shelves for her room 😜. http://liketk.it/2AamO #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKkids #LTKfamily #LTKhome #projectnursery #sharetheeverymom
  • I was totally third wheeling it with these two this morning (she has been such a daddy’s girl this week), but we managed to get in some five month photos with our little valentine before 6:30 a.m. Swipe through to see the subtle sign I got from my mom during our photoshoot. She was always so great at making us feel extra special on these holidays but also thoroughly enjoyed flicking us off when we were annoying her 🖕🏼💗
