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! 🙂

  • This sweet little handprint ornament made me go 😍 every time I passed it on our tree this year. We went to @glazepottery in Thiensville to make it, and I may have already told Bill what I want for Mother’s Day since I definitely teared up when I saw it there (motherhood is emotional haha) - a mug with two handprints with the saying “These hands hold my heart” in the middle. Wink, wink, nod, nod @williamritt just in case you forgot.
  • This video clip from our first dance has been in my Instagram ‘Drafts’ since our anniversary in September (better late than never?). This January marks 10 years together and these last few months have been some of the most incredible yet. Watching you become a dad makes me so grateful that Ainsley and I are both yours ❤️ love you, @williamritt! And we’re forever grateful for @russelled and @kaileydickerson’s incredible surprise.
  • We’re keeping things festive over here for the next week 🎄 This is the tree that my mom would put up in my room as a little girl. It was pretty special to put Ainsley’s first ornaments on it this year.
  • Merry Christmas ❤️ The Ritts
  • I love how you can see the cardinal ornament so well in this photo. A cardinal is one of our signs from our mom (along with Ainsley flicking us off 🖕🏼😂). And little Kevy’s angel ornament is also right at the top. My mom loved ornaments (she got one every time we traveled) and traditional Christmas decorations so this setup along with all of our family photos makes my heart pretty full ❤️
