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! 🙂

  • The rest of the new nursery looks like a tornado went through it due to my organizing and cleaning frenzy this weekend, but this little corner makes my heart so happy. Baby boy has my brother’s helicopter and sweater, some clothes from his cousin Max and a painting from his big sister waiting for his arrival.
  • Sunday selfies in the kitchen with my people. Thank you again for all of the love this weekend about Baby Boy Ritt! We could not be more excited 💙
  • Bill and I went into our ultrasound today just hoping for a healthy baby but also were convinced we were having another little girl. The second the tech switched to the 3D ultrasound, I felt like I was getting a sign from Kev. And sure enough...it’s a (very healthy) boy! Swipe for Ainsley’s reaction and some snaps of her growing bump too 💙

  • Somehow managed to make it with time to spare. This @bananarepublic coat, scarf and sneakers and @mzwallacenyc bag are my travel go-tos. http://liketk.it/2JVRH @liketoknow.it #liketkit #mybanana #carryyourday
